Cards For Sale

Sunday, June 5, 2011


Good Morning Peeps!!! It is Sunday so that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the fun sketch Karen has for us this week:

I pulled out my favorite DS papers right now, the Stampin' Up Sunny Garden paper pack. Love the bright cheery colors in this pack.

The base of my card is a 5 inch square of Poppy Parade card stock. I followed that up with some so saffron, even tho the the catalog says Daffodil Delight is a match to this paper pack I like the look of so saffron better. I made my circles with my nestabilities dies and used more DSP from the same pack.

I stamped the flower stamp from the "Hello Blossoms" single stamp set several times, one each in Poppy Parade, So saffron, and Peach Parfait. I cut out the flowers and added them over the Pear Pizazz  piece with some dimesionals. I then stamped one more time with black and used my 1/4 inch punch to punch out the letters and add them to the flower blooms. I added a strip across the bottom of so saffron that I had embossed with the square lattice EF. I then used some poppy parade ribbon and some rhinestones to embellish. I finished it off with a cute little so saffron butterfly!

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with and don't forget to link it up over at Karen's blog for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
