SSINKspiration Card Sketch SSINKCS52: Enjoy Life

Good morning!  We had quite the roller coaster of the weekend but it was so nice to have a quiet, slow day yesterday I enjoyed every moment (I even got a little time in the studio, whoo hoo!)  Today the SSINKspiration team is back with a new sketch challenge and you're really going to like this one.  It provides some fun elements but makes it so the card isn't crazy, over the top that you may feel intimidated and of course I decided to show off lots of new stuff from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

I started with Crumb cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added Mint Macaron cardstock for the cardfront (so happy this color is back).  On this piece I stamped along the bottom using the floral stamp from the Enjoy Life stamp set (and stamped off once for a softer effect). 

Next I added a piece of the Share What you love Speciality Designer Series paper that I punched with the Triple Banner Punch along the right side, and used another coordinating pattern from the package across the center that was matted with Old Olive cardstock.  Before attaching this piece I wrapped some Blackberry Bliss Twine, from the Nature's Twine package around the DSP and then tied a bow.  A little know about this twine,  the colors are great and you get 4 colors in the package (5 yards each) but it is a little stiffer than our Baker's Twine so you have to play a little extra when making a bow to get it nice and tight.

The greeting is also from the Enjoy Life stamp set (you are really going to love this set) and was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the butterflies in Grapefruit Grove (one of the new 2018-2020 In Colors) before matting with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and attaching to the cardfront with dimensionals to finish it off.

I love all the colors in this DSP package and there are so many different options, you can get such a variety of project looks with just this one mega package.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using this sketch and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create!
