Hand Stamped Sentiments – Sketch Challenge

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge.  This sketch challenge comes to us from the April issue of the Success magazine.  This magazine is one of the freebies you receive each month as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  What a fun sketch!

found in the April issue of Stampin' Up!'s Success magazine

Here is my project.

Project information:

Finish card size:  4.25″ H x 5.5″ W

The flower was made with the Flower Layers #3 Originals Die, Build A Flower Bigz Die and the Big Shot using the patterned paper, Old Olive and Pretty in Pink CS.  The center in Taken with Teal CS was punched using SU 3/4″ circle punch.  The flower is held together with a silver brad from the Hodgepodge kit.  The leaves were punched with the large oval punch then curled with the edge of a pair of scissors.

Stamped the flower background with So Saffron classic ink on So Saffron CS layer.

The sentiment stamp was inked with Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal markers then stamped on Pretty in Pink CS then punched with the large oval punch.  The Sweet Pea DSP oval was punched with the wide oval punch.  The outside wide oval is askew.  The small flowers were punched from Rose Red CS with the Trio flower punch.  The centers were punched from the lighter color on the DSP with a regular hole punch.  The sentiment was adhered with dimensionals.

Before adhering all the layers to the Kraft card base the Pretty in Pink satin ribbon was adhered.

All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Inspiration Challenge

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge – an outdoor room by Pottery Barn.  There are so many things in the photo that provide inspiration.  What stood out for me were the trees and all the green.  I created a card with a blooming branch and bird.  Spring is so close and one of my favorite things about it is the greenery and the flowers blooming.
