Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic: Sketch Challenge

Good morning stampers!

This week's a Sketch Challenge! Use any colors, any stamps...but use this layout to spark your creativity!

Today, I'm featuring the Kinda Eclectic stamp set by Stampin' Up!  and some Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog. Neutral colors with a little pop of spring colors. Enjoy!

When making this card using Stampin' Up!

  • Card base is Whisper White.
  • Stamp greeting at bottom left.
  • Stamp the sunburst in Tip Top Taupe ink in the center (or whatever color you love).
  • Cut out your favorite DSP two 2 inch squares and adhere with SNAIL.
  • Cut pieces of ribbon on a slant (Mint Macaron 1" Dotted Lace and Watermelon Wonder satin stitched ribbons featured in my card) and adhere.
  • Then cut another piece of card stock to go across, 1 inch x 4-1/4 inches.  I also embossed that piece with the Mosaic Textured Impressions Folder. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere to card front.
  • Stamp and cut out butterflies (in Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder).
  • Add rhinestones for the bling!!!!!
  • You're done :D
