Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!
Update- Jeff went to work today Yeah! He called me at lunch and said he was sore but he was OK. I just hope he didn't over do it and go back too soon!!!
I have all my housework done and have some time to play before he gets home. Another yeah right! I was looking around for some sketch challenges to play on and found one by Hand Stamped Sketches, here is their link. http://handstampedsentiments.blogspot.com
What a delightful little sketch it is, just see for yourself.
I just love the Quarter Fancy DSP. I needed a somewhat large focal image piece to work into the open space of the sketch, so I pulled out a stamp set that I have not used in ages. It is called From My Heart. It is a two box set with four large images and four sentiments. There are endless possibilities for using this set. I turned the Doilie piece to the under side of the sketch for weight and balance. Then I stamped two images, cut two pieces out of one and colored those pieces lightly with a Strawberry Slush Marker and a Blender Pen. Then I mounted those pieces with Stampin Dimentionals on to the second die cut circle piece. That image was cut out with the Circle #2 die. I also shaded the circle piece slightly for depth. I ran the Strawberry Slush solid piece of card stock and the three banner pieces through the Big Shot with the new Embossing Folder (a SAB item) called Decorative Dots. Adding a few Pearls really dresses up the card.
Here is a look at the inside,
Well that is it for this card I sure hope you like it and give the Hand Stamped Sketch a try. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you too find some time to create something fun today.
