Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge (HSSSC12)


Good Morning! There's a new sketch challenge up at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Here is the fun sketch below. You can be as literal or interpret it any way you wish.


And here's my take on it. Stampin' Up! just announced a new color renovation, I'll be sharing more details about it on Thursday, and they sent us a card stock sample of the five new Core Colors to be introduced into the new Color Collections this July. I used these to create the card. The base is Daffodil Delight, then Very Vanilla, Marina Mist and finally Cajun Craze. In the background you see Early Espresso. The only color I didn't include in this project was Cherry Cobbler, but I'll make sure to include it in a future project soon. 


For the embellishments I simply went through my stamp sets and used whatever stamps appealed to me. I'll list the sets at the bottom of the post under the supplies. 
A Few Hints: For the center yellow image I didn't have a punch that fit it perfectly so  I simply cut it out with Paper Snips. Also, the flower cut-outs are actually a stamp from the set but I cut them out as well and flipped them over to hide the inked image.Each embellishment was adhered with SNAIL Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots or Stampin' Dimensionals to add depth.

We'd love for you to join us and share your interpretation from the sketch. Remember it doesn't have to be a card. This month is NAtional Scrapbooking Month, so why not incorporate the sketch into a layout? Most importantly have fun and be creative!
Here's a look at Genny's project for some added inspiration and as always...
