Freshly Made Sketches #318

Happy New Year!

FMS318 starts a new year of challenges.  This sketch is clean and simple, just like all their challenges.  Sale-a-Bration and the Occassions catalogs are in full swing, and the Party Pandas set is free with a $50 order.  I am in love with this adorable set, and paired it with 3 patterns of some of my favorite DSP, Pick a Pattern.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Basic Black, and Whisper White.  This card came together very quickly with just a small bit of fussy cutting.

Here’s my card:

Isn’t that Panda adorable?  The Happy Birthday sentiment is part of this stamp set as well.   I added 3 of the black jewels in the corners, cut out the balloon and popped it up with mini-dimensionals, and I was done.

Here’s the whole Party Panda stamp set (item 147221):

My goal this year is to post a blog entry 3 times a week.  By writing it down, and publishing it, I hope that helps me keep meet my goal.

Have a Peachy day!

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #010

This week I decided to use the diagonal from bottom left to upper right consisting on green, fun fold, and bug or insect.  I don’t know why I didn’t think of the dragonflies first, but I’ve wanted to use this cute lady bug stamp since I got it and finally pulled it out (and it’s now retired;  SIGH).  I wanted to have a Real Red, Basic Black, and Whisper White card but that wouldn’t include the green I needed.  I also had to find a fun fold and this Dutch door fold card is so perfectly easy to create!  (Thank you Lovenstamps.com!)

I found grass in the Thoughtful Branches photopolymer stamp set, including the matching mounded lines.  I carefully stamped the  ladybugs just at the edge of the grass and colored them using Real Red.  The Basic Black DSP is from Pick-a-Pattern.  Love that paper and am going to have to order another stack of it at this rate!  I used Real Red in the scallop oval to crop out two ovals.  I was able to line up the scallops on both the inside and the outside, and then it was just a matter of using my Tombow to put all the pieces together.
