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!

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.

Bunny Box

Chocolate Bunny and flowers from Vintage Vogue – I stamped the Chocolate Bunny with Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla CS then cut him out.  I stamped the Vintage Vogue flowers with So Saffron and Pretty Pink on Very Vanilla CS then cut them out.

The small flowers on the green branch were punched using the Trio Flower punch and the branch with leaves was stamped using the Two-Step Bird Punch.  The Pretty in Pink egg was punched using the Wide Oval punch then decorated with the flowers and the Whisper White grosgrain ribbon which was dyed with So Saffron ink.

The small flowers on the vine that are on the side of the box were stamped using Regal Rose and Old Olive markers.  The stamp is from Tiny Tags.

Half pearls from the Pretties kit were adhered to the center of the flowers.
