Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #189


I worked this up for this weeks' Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411.  I really love the sketch this week!


I used the string lace punch to create a "frame" for the little Valentine's Greeting Card Kid, by punching one frame out of Cherry Cobbler, then backing it with a frame punched from Early Espresso.  I used SU ultrafine glitter in her heart and stamped the sentiment from Tiny Tags in Early Espresso.  The paper rose was made from Melanie Schulenberg's fabulous
paper roses video tutorial!

Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Sending Love dsp

Ink:  Black, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Early Espresso

Accessories:  Big Shot, Birds & Blooms larger flower, Little Leaves Sizzlit, string lace punch, sponges, Aquapainter, Dimensionals, Glimmer Brads, Ticket Corner punch, Tiny Tags punch, Early Espresso satin ribbon, Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon

Don't you just love this little Greeting Card Kid? I do! I just have to get her out and make another dozen or so cards today after seeing your really clever idea of tying the tags to the loops in this punched trim. It's another light bulb moment for me. TFS, Celia
