Happy Monday! I know, but what can we do? Here's a bit of cheeriness to brighten your morning!
I came across this A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E sketch last night and went running for my stamping studio. Yes, I had indeed spent all day in there already, but when inspiration strikes, you have to go with it! Here's the sketch I used from the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge:
I think I have found a new challenge, this sketch is just wonderful! I needed some bright and cheery papers for this sketch and found exactly what I needed with the Flowerpot Designer Series Papers!
Once again, I just went with the color palette that Stampin' Up! had already supplied me. I chose to focus on Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. I chose those colors because I knew that I wanted to emboss this adorable cake and I have embossing powders in both of those colors :) The rest of the card just grew from there, bit by bit.
This cake from the Well Worded Stamp Set is just so cute, even cuter when it's been heat embossed! I love the Crushed Curry background paper and the coordinating paper on the right of the sentiment brings in a refreshing pop of color to break up all of that yellow :) I used the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to punch a flower from the same paper and place it on the bottom left to help balance out that color. The playful sentiment is from the Cupcake Party Stamp Set and brings in another pop of color and whimsy.
I kept going with my whimsical theme, adding random loops of linen thread on both sides of the sentiment (to balance visual weight) and threw in some more punch flowers, this time in Tangerine Tango. I added an additional layer of Stampin' Dimensionals to the lower right hand flower to add another bit of depth to the design. And of course, what card would be complete without Candy Dots? I varied the colors to add more whimsy.
There's a bit more "stuff" on my card today than I usually use. Please let me know what you think of all the extra "bling"!
I have been busy in my stamping studio and can't wait to share with you! I will be back tomorrow with another challenge!
Have a creative day and thanks for stopping by!
