Today’s card was made for the Stamping&Blogging Sketch & Stamp challenge. I decided to break open a new set called Wild about Flowers from Stampin’ Up!
It is a really pretty set with some great sentiments included too so I set to work stamping the flower stems in smoky slate ink and then embossing the flower heads in silver embossing powder. When I cut out the rectangle with the squares collection framelits, I sponged around the inside of the die with marina mist ink to create a cream border.
The chevron is a cute clipboard I got from WHSmith recently but the blue dotty paper is from the new Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper. I added a lovely punch of colour with Daffodil delight and finished it off with a silver foiled greetings thinlit word. A bit more bling courtesy of the silver glimmer paper and it was complete!
Why not play along and make something with the same sketch? Check out the details here at stamping&blogging
