You're in My Thoughts - Two Challenges
Has it really been that long since my last post? Where does the time go??? I've been busy stamping almost every day. Just haven't taken the time - until now - to share my creations. Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some items from my Fall and Christmas stamp camps. For today I'm showing you a card that was inspired from two challenges: SUO Challenges and the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge.
The SUO Challenge was to create a "Thinking of You" card. I've got a few "thinking of you" stamps, but my favorite is one from the Word Play set. One challenge down, one to go. Here's the Stampin' Queen's sketch:
I have to admit, this sketch was a stretch for me. First, I chose the stamp sets: Word Play, Netting and Delicate Doilies. In need of some color inspiration, I grabbed my handy-dandy Color Coach and settled for the creative combination listed for Soft Suede. After gathering all of my materials I was still stumped as to how to combine everything. I finally decided to stamp the two large panels to make my own designer paper (I stamped off to mute the colors a bit). I love the Netting background stamp! I've been using it on quite a few projects lately. For some finishing touches, I layered the Boho Blossom punches and added pearls. I created the bow using the fork bow method. The card below is my final result.
Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Word Play, Netting
Paper: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Regal Rose, and Very Vanilla
Ink: So Saffron, Regal Rose
Accessories: So Saffron taffeta ribbon, Boho Blossoms punch, pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals
