HSS Sketch Challenge #20

This week's challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a sketch challenge. 


For this card I tried to use some of the new Core Colors and returning In Colors that are about to be made public come July 1 as part of SU's Color Renovation.  The base is comprised of Soft Suede Textured card stock. I used Craft Chocolate Chip Ink to stamp the Medallion image onto the front. 


A strip of card stock was punched on one side with the Scallop Trim Border punch and adhered with SNAIL Adhesive. Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon was tied around it in a stylish knot. The finishing touch was the addition of the sentiment, from the Sale-A-Bration set Vintage Labels, which I stamped in Soft Suede Ink and punched with the coordinating Curly Label punch. This was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals as well. (TIP: The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig allowed me to place the sentiment perfectly centered in the stamped frame.)


1" and 1-1/4" circles were punched from Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler card stock and run through the Big Shot with the Backgrounds 1 Texturz plates to create the embossed images. These were layered onto Very Vanilla Textured card stock that were punched with 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" circle punches and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I just wanted to say it was nice to meet you Saturday. I have a whole loft full of stamps, paper, and crafting stuff. I love scrap booking and making cards. i just wish i had more time for it. It doesn't help that I have family members that are Stampin' Up and Creative Memory Demonstrators.

I love your work. I hope to keep in touch and see what you are up to.
