Stamp With Us challenge card


I get to have a full day crafting today so I thought I'd take part in this challenge over at Stamp With Us. They'll be offering new challenges (usually each Sunday), rotating between Sketch, Theme, Colour and Recipe. As this is the first one they're giving us a bit longer than usual to enter, we have until midnight, Saturday 11th April. They also have a call out for crafters to join their Design Team so why not give it a go. This is the first sketch:


As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use my background stamps. I started with a card blank of Certainly Celery. Using Perfect Plum ink I stamped the Friendly background stamp onto Pale Plum card, then matted it onto Perfect Plum card. I stamped the Paisley background stamp in Always Artichoke ink onto Certainly Celery card, then matted it onto Always Artichoke card. Certainly Celery narrow grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the matted layers. To keep the friendship theme going, I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from the Circle of Friendship stamp set, using Perfect Plum ink on Whisper White card. I punched this out with the 1" circle punch. This was matted onto Pale Plum card punched with the 1-1/4" circle punch. A dimensional was used to stick it to a scallop circle punched from Perfect Plum card and the whole embellishment was added over the ribbon, raised on more dimensionals.

Right, I'm off now to open my parcel of goodies from the new mini. I had to delay my order until nearer payday because I wanted so much, heehee. I'll show you what I bought tomorrow.

Have a great weekend.
