Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge - Edition # 14
Had SO much fun doing this one! I think I may just have to make many, many more. Such a FUN sketch!
Card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 (standard size) and is made from Marigold Morning.
I inked up the image stamp (from the Happy Harmony set) in Marigold Morning (blooms) and Tombo marker # 228 (stems) and stamped it on Whisper White. The image was matted on a piece of Sassafrass Lass DP. Another piece of Whisper White was used as the matte for the sentiment and I tied a ribbon around that. I was lucky enough to find ribbon that is ALMOST exactly like Chocolate Chip and I LOVE it! I stamped the sentiment using the same Tombo marker as I did on the stems. It's stamped on Whisper White, cut out using the Coluzzle and matted on a piece of Chocolate Chip punched using the 1 3/8" punch.
I am a SAHM to three little monkeys! Most days I love it...some days, not so much. Good thing I am married to the man of my dreams because I couldn't do it without him.
I discovered stamping before stamping was "cool" at least 20 or so years ago and have been dabbling with paper crafts ever since! I still enjoy scrapbooking (though I don't do nearly enough of it), but my TRUE love is making cards!
Thanks to a friend I discovered Stampin' UP! in 2008 and have been pretty much hooked ever since. When my demonstrator made me an offer I couldn't refuse, I just HAD to join her team.
Now, a couple of years later, I just LOVE what I do and you can too!!! My Stampin' UP! team has grown from little ol' me to 25 team members since I started on this new adventure.
Come and join me on my Stampin' UP! journey!
