Sunday Sketch – SS037

Today, I bring you two very different cards inspired by the SS037 Sketch.

The January Stampin’ Up! #SimpleStamping Challenge is to use just Stamp, Paper, Ink and an item from the Sale-a-bration Brochure.  Another Color Challenge that I discovered is the Color Throw Down – CTD#625.  The colors:  Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point were selected to match.

This is what I created…


The Bright’s Family DSP Pack does all the work.  The pattern on the selected sheets suggests a lot of texture.  The floral focal image is fussy cut from one of the patterns in the True Love DSP pack.  The floral image was colored using Sponge Daubers and the three matching ink colors.  The Basic Black 2” square cut piece supports the cut floral.  The card base is Melon Mambo to correspond to the Melon Mambo “ribbon” and the colored DSP is grounded with a Basic Black Mat.  The sentiment, Best Wishes, is the Sale-a-bration element and comes from the FREE Touch of Ink stamp set.

A fun bright card that is very easy to make!

Carrying forward my Weekend Challenge Theme: House Plants and I used the Simply Succulents stamp set and the coordinating Potted Succulents Dies to make a soft chic card.  I also decided to flip the Sketch 90 degrees when I made the second card.

So this is what I created:


My favorite die in the Potted Succulent Dies is the open background lacy die.  The resulting cut-out is ideal to use as a mask.  Using a Sponge Brayer, I colored one side of the Crumb Cake panel with Crumb Cake ink and the other side with Soft Suede ink to get a tone-on-tone soft back ground.  I stamped the sentiment, Thanks, in Early Espresso ink in the lower left corner.  To keep with the shabby chic vibe, I added two ribbons: The retired Magnolia Linen Ribbon I still have in my stash under the Scalloped Lace Trim.  Looks super pretty! Note: The backside of any of the 2019-2021 In-Color Scalloped Linen Ribbons would work just as well as the one I chose.

To get the open floral Succulents I used for my focal point, I added a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to an Adhesive Sheet and ran that through the Cut and Emboss Machine with the same die I used for the mask.  I fussy cut out the floral elements, removed the backing and adhered them to the card front.

The card front panel is matted in Very Vanilla on a Soft Suede card base.  To complete the romantic look, I added a few Basic Pearl Jewels under the sentiment.

I really like how this card turned out.
