Reason to Smile: Sketch Challenge

Good evening friends!  I know I've been missing lately but we've been getting ready to head out on vacation but don't fear I have lots of new projects to share.  For this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I have a great new preview of a stamp set that will be available next month, Reason to Smile.  The card starts with a cardbase of Pool Party and used a piece of Summer Smooches DSP matted on Whisper White.  The main stamped image used Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo for the outline of the flowers and Daffodil Delight and Pool Party for the inside coloring.  I love the two step stamps since it's so easy to to color in images.  I also stamped the large flower with Old Olive ink on another piece of Whisper White and colored it in with Tangerine Tango and the blender pen before cutting it out with paper snips.

The ribbon is 1/4" Daffodil Delight Stiched Grosgrain ribbon which is new and so fun.  For the greeting I used the new Itty Bitty Banners stamp set with Tangerine Tango and cut the banner out with the new matching Itty Bitty Banner framelits and the Big Shot.  I also sponged around the edges of the banner with Daffodil Delight ink.  Both the large flower and banner were popped up with dimensionals.  This card is not my normal color combinations but I love how bright and summery it is.

While I'm away I'll be sharing the projects from last weeks stamp-a-stack and we make another card with the Reason to Smile stamp set that you'll love so you have to check it out.

Happy stamping!
