No Foolin’ – A New Stamp-off

bannerThis week’s “stamp off” is a sketch from Jackie. I love it. Actually, I loved it so much, I made two cards for the sketch. Sadly, I made the first one weeks ago, and I have no idea where I put it. I didn’t photograph it first, and I think I sent it to someone. And that’s why we make cards, right? To send, not to hoard?

Here’s Jackie’s sketch.

Rose Wonder, Stampin' Up!

Here’s my card. I’m obviously back in floral mode!

Rose Wonder, Stampin' Up!

Here’s how I was inspired to create this card. I found the Whisper White rose die-cut on my stamp table when I was cleaning it off. (Love those Rose Garden Thinlits, don’t you? And bundles are wonderful! Who doesn’t want to save 15%?) Hmmmm. This could work. I wanted to use some of my retiring In Colors – so I stamped the rose image on Whisper White card stock using Mellow Moss and Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write Markers. You don’t see the stamped image; it’s just a guide.

I colored the rose with Tangelo Twist and Mellow Moss Classic Stampin’ Pads and an aqua painter, then cut it out. Using the Fine-tip Glue Pen, I layered the die cut over the stamped image. Perfect!

All that was left was to decide on the ribbon, banners, or other elements for the skinny layers. I love the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape, so I used pieces of those. I covered a thin strip of Whisper White card stock with the Mint Macaron Washi Tape so it would have a little more stability when I notched the end.

The “yellow” layer is Hello Honey, and the card is Cajun Craze. I usually use a lot of Cajun Craze in the fall, but not much in the spring and summer. Botanical Gardens has changed that, since it’s a major color in the dsp, as well as a color in the card stock pack.

Finally, I added sequins to the left corner. I think these are from a recent kit, either a Paper Pumpkin or the Watercolor Wishes. A little bag of these was also found on my stamp table. (I really must start putting things away, don’t you think?)

By the way – if you want any of the retiring In Color products (card stock, ink, refills, markers, ribbon), order them now! Once the retiring list comes out, they’ll be gone in a flash. (Older colors sometimes come back as core colors later if there’s a color renovation. We haven’t heard of one this year, but one never knows…)

Now – go see what Jackie & Susan have created this week. I know they have something fabulous. Both of them are so very creative.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
