It's Time for Another Sketch Challenge

What a crazy weekend! After spending Saturday driving up to NJ for a birthday party and then driving home it was nice to just relax today and hang out. For this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I wanted to take a break from Valentine's which have been my theme lately and loved the cute little characters in the in new Picinic Parade Hostess set and decided to try them out. The great thing about the new clear mount stamps is that I was able to place all the stamps to make the main stamped image on one clear block and ink and stamp them all at once (how easy it that??)

The card base is Soft Suede and I used the Welcome Neighbor DSP mounted on Old Olive cardstock along the left hand side. I used a blender pen and Stampin' Pastels to color in the stamped images before matting them on Ballet Blue cardstock. The greeting is punched out with the Oval Punch and then matted on a Crushed Curry Oval Scallop punch piece. Finally, I tied a nice big bow with Crushed Curry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and mounted to the card with glue dots.

Niced and light! This stamp set so cute and fun to make different scenes with all the available images. Have a great week and enjoy!
Pin It!
