Just Believe Sketch Challenge

I simply must dump some old files and photos from my computer.  I was creating a scrapbook page with My Digital Studio, and it was taking forever.  I’m sure it’s because I have a lot on my laptop.  I had a fun time, though, playing with overlays and digital coloring.  When I checked the time and realized how late it was, I decided I’d better stamp something non-digital so I’d have something to blog.  (The scrapbook page isn’t finished yet.)  So I decided to work on this week’s Sketch Challenge from the Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator forum.

It was such a fun sketch.  There are three demonstrators who design a sketch challenge each week.  They’ve been doing this for over a year, and they’re still coming up with great sketches.  It’s amazing.  Here’s the one for this week.

Stamps:  Just Believe; Ink:  Soft Suede classic; Soft Suede, So Saffron stampin’ write markers; Paper:  Soft Suede, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Sahara Sand, Pool Party card stock; Attic Boutique designer series paper; Other:  Soft Suede seam binding ribbon; punches – dotted scallop ribbon border, word window, modern label, Boho Blossoms, itty bitty shapes punch pack; basic rhinestone jewels, stampin’ dimensionals

I inked the floral image with Soft Suede and So Saffron markers, but really didn’t like the way the flowers looked.  More Mustard was too dark and So Saffron was too pale.  I remembered a swap I participated in with some friends, and Joanne Do from Hawaii, used this set.  She punched flowers with the Boho Blossoms punch, so I decided to try that here.  I love it!  It looks so much better than the inked image.  Thanks, Joanne!!  I layered the punched flowers, then added a rhinestone in each.

This was so much fun!  I think it turned out really well, too.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you’re interested in digital crafting, you can download a free 30-day trial of My Digital Studio.  The full version is packed with designer paper, punches, stamps, and embellishments, and there are tons of downloads you can add to your files.  The paper and embellishments never run out, and they’re priced very reasonably.  I purchased 7 downloads today (mostly stamps and paper) for less than the cost of one stamp set.  Ok, it would be a very expensive stamp set, but still – 5 stamp sets and two packs of paper for around $30?  That’s amazing!  Check it out.  You can order the free trial or the full version from my web site.

Have a wonderful day.
