Stampendous Sketch Challenge

Good Morning! I hope you are all enjoying a nice long weekend (if you're in the US) or just a nice weekend! Stampendous is so excited to be starting Saturday Challenges and I am so excited to join in the fun. The first challenge is a sketch by Wendy Price and I just love it! This month Stampendous is giving away a Cling Jumbo Romantic Border to one lucky participant. This fun challenge goes on all month long, all you have to do it create a card using this sketch and upload it to your blog or another online gallery, then go to the Stampendous blog and add a link to this post. You have until Thursday, September 29th at 11pm PST to play along. I hope you all get a chance to play, it's such a great sketch and a wonderful prize! So without further ado, here is my card:

I used the Foliate Quad Cube (which you just might be able to find at Michael's ;)) to create those pretty circles. Using the emboss resist technique, I stamped the images I wanted to use with Versamark, then embossed them with Pearl White embossing powder before punching out the circles (they are 1") and adding Distress inks. I used the Dream Text Background and a fun sentiment from the Happy Messages Perfectly Clear set to finish off the card - oh ya and some twine! Here's a little closer look at those circles, I matted each on with a coordinating color of cardstock:

There are a bunch of other talented DT ladies from Stampendous playing along today, so be sure to stop by and see all the inspiration and leave them some blog love!!

  2. Okay. This is just gorgeous! Love the pop of color against the kraft. Love the double layering of each circle with the same color...texture without overpowering! Those little buttons add the perfect touch. Great use of the Foliate Quad Cube!

  3. This is stunning Geny, I love the bright colors! :)

  4. yummy! one of my favorite color combos and i love the way the emboss resist looks like velvet!
