Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Woohoo! It's my favorite time of the week…time for another fabulous sketch from Stamping 411! The creations by all of the operators and players are always phenomenal, I love seeing so many variations on one awesome sketch! I hope you'll make time to check out the entries, and play along if you can!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

I started with the butterfly from Flores Suaves (in the Spanish SU! Catalog), watercolored with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso & Cherry Cobbler. Then I made a circular mask and sponged Crumb Cake ink over the butterfly, and mounted it on Cherry Cobbler card stock. I added a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets pack, with just a smidge of Early Espresso ribbon tied around it.

Next I stamped Thinking of You from the Curly Cute set in Early Espresso (stamped off) across my card stock, oh yeah…of course I used Shimmery White card stock, my fave!!

The border at the bottom was made with 1" punched circles of Early Espresso card stock adhered behind the sentiment side by side. Next I added some half-back pearls.

The background is textured with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, sponged at the edges with Early Espresso ink, and adhered to Early Espresso card stock and a Crumb Cake base.

Thanks for stopping by! Looking forward to seeing your creations this week 🙂

  1. I love that you changed it from an oval to a circle! Some folks get intimidated by different shapes that they may or may not own. You are a true master crafter.. I love how you colored that butterfly.. .boy I bet it’s GORGEOUS in real life…. (hint hint)… (((hugs))))

  2. Kerin, I love the safety pen embellishment! That is so stinking cute! I am going to have to try that this week (if I can find my safety pens!). And that butterfly is just beautiful!

  3. Kerin — your card is amazing, as always! I would never have thought to stamp the sentiment multiple times to make the background but it is just adorable. Going to have to remember that. You always have such creative ideas! Love the butterfly as well! Thanks so much for sharing — blessings, Gretchen
