I played along with a new sketch challenge this week. I was almost too excited about all of the new things going on at Stampin’ Up! to actually stamp today! This 25% off sale on 25 stamp sets is amazing! When Stampin’ Up! celebrates an anniversary they really do it in a BIG way! Hasn’t it seemed like one great sale after another since the beginning of the year?!
Somehow, I did manage to find time (and the attention span) to actually create my card for the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge this week. I really love being on the Design Team for the PCCC. What a fun and unexpected benefit of becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator that has been.
This is not the card I sat down to make. I wanted to make a card with a Christmas tree and this designer paper. I don’t know how this happened, but isn’t it pretty? I love this color combination. That Cherry Cobbler looks fantastic with Crumb Cake and almost any green!
Paper: Season of Style Designer Series Paper (cut at 3 x4″) , Cherry Cobbler (cut at 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″), and Whisper White (cut at 2-3/4 x 4″)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Stamp: Prince of Peace (This is one of the Single Stamps available right now online only. The product # is 134811.)
Accessories: Big Shot, Deco Labels Framelits, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Rhinestones, Scallop Trim Border Punch
Here is the starting sketch…you can see that I minimized some of the details by using rhinestones to embellish. I really wanted my stamped image to be the focal point and star of this card.
