Week three already. What fun I am having seeing all these wonderful creations with the same sketch. Today's sketch was lots of fun for me-- I may have gone a bit over board but I still love it.
There is a lot going on on this card, lol! For beginners, I started with Bashful Blue cards stock and layered it with Basic Black. Then I attached a piece of Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Rose Red and So Saffron on to form the next layer. I used the All in a Row stamp set to make the stitching marks. I used the slit punch to create the scallop from the polka dot Cutie Pie dp for the top. It needed something but my design was not leaving room for another layer so I added black dots around the scallops to tie in the dots around the flowers. The piece of dp on the bottom is also from the Cutie Pie collection. The the sentiment is a rub on from Colorbok. (Faith Blessing collection). Next are the flowers themselves. These are from the SAB set that you can earn for free this month. The set is called So Many Scallops and it is wonderful. I stamped the flower image in So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Rose Red and Certainly Celery then I stamped the dots from the other stamp in the set around them to add interst and make them pop just a bit more. Next I stamped the flower from the Happy Hearts Day set on all four colors of card stock and punched them out. Now I used all four colors again to stamp the little flower from Little Pieces on Whisper White and punched them out. I layered all the pieces alternating colors on top of a Basic Black Scallop and added a black brad to the centers. I used the dimensionals to pop up all the flowers. And then the black and white polka dot ribbon is on the top ( no idea whose this is). So what do you think? Too much? I like it!
If you like this one you are gonna want to check out all these other wonderful cards using the same sketch. The girls did a fabulous job with this sketch! (check them out even if you didn't like mine, lol)
