Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #151

It's time for another great sketch at the Stamping 411 blog! I really enjoyed the sketch this week…well, I do every week, but this week especially, because the idea for my card popped into my head right away…always helpful 🙂 I hope you'll check out what the other operator's have created and play along this week! You are definitely going to want to tune in next week for some real fun ;);)

Anyway, here's the sketch:


And here's my card:


Mmmmm, purrrrrple…yes I love purple! Which is quite odd, because I don't think I really use it very often in stamping, hmmm…

I don't think you can tell by the picture above, but I sprayed everything except the black card stock with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. I even wiped up some of the excess from my Color Catcher with a Sponge Dauber and rubbed it on the ribbon. You can see it better if you click on this picture:


I dyed my Whisper White Satin Ribbon with Lavender Lace by rubbing the ink on with a Stamping Sponge. I left the ends of the ribbon a little lighter so that I could layer the pieces for my bow. The butterflies were colored with Almost Amethyst and Lavender Lace, cut out and attached with Mini Glue Dots. I used the Finial Press embossing folder, and all of the white/stamped parts are Shimmery White card stock.

Thanks for stopping by, I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

  1. WoW! This is really beautiful. I love this card! The colors are great, and the butterflies are awesome!

  2. OMG!!! I almost did something like this…it was my intent to do an oval and cut butterfly and place around it on one side. Too funny!
    I love the way you have them place and the coloring is to die for. Thanks for letting me visualize what was in my head!! hehe
    Love it, it’s simply beautiful!

  3. That “shimmer smooch” stuff looks FAB! I hope that we get it in our next IB&C here in AUS! I am soooooo going to CASE this card! (But it will have to be without the shimmer smooch!) Note to self: ORDER THAT BUTTERFLY STAMP!!! TFS xxAxx
