Friday Simple Stamping – Sketch Challenge
December 4, 2020
It always amazes me how quickly one can get behind. I find this happens to me near a month end. I am updating my calendar of events. My meetup.com class happens and before you know it, the personal deadlines I have set for myself were yesterday and beyond. Making up for lost time with this post!
Encouraging you to be creative and to craft, I have selected a very easy layout that always results in very nice cards. Your choice of paper, stamp and ink will yield very different looks. Using this layout, I created three cards. Using different techniques and/or tools can increase the complexity. Let your imagination take you along for the ride.
This is the Sketch:
Easy – Perfectly Plaid
Paper, Stamp and Ink. A simple sentiment and lots of patterned paper. I chose the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and the Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper (DSP). For the focal image, I used the coordinating Pine Tree punch to cut the Mossy Meadow polka dot DSP tree. Finishing off the card with a little bit of red ribbon.
A quick and easy festive holiday card.
Step Up – Fine Art Floral
Showcasing a few new products: Fine Art Floral designer series paper and the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. This card is a little simpler than the previous card as the focal image is the gorgeous painted rose(s) found within the designer series paper. I stepped this card up by using the embossing folder on the Petal Pink mat.
A very pretty card oozing with feminine charm.
Stepped Up – Jolly Gingerbread House
Stepping Up this card, I heat embossed the Gingerbread House stamp from the November 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit: Jolly Gingerbread with White Embossing Powder on Cinnamon Cider card stock. Using the fine-tipped Water Painter brush, I bleached out various elements of the house. I then, re-colored the house with a variety of Stampin’ Write Markers. The gingerbread house out was then fussy cut.
To mimic the look of gingerbread, I embossed the Cinnamon Cider mat with the retired Quilt Top embossing folder, patted it with Versamark ink and added White Embossing Powder. In lieu of a ribbon, I chose to use a row of Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots to complete the card.
I just want to break off a piece of that “gingerbread”! Do you like gingerbread?
Here are a few detail shots and the challenges I am participating in:
