It’s another Friday Stamp-Off with my friends Jackie & Susan! This time, we have a sketch challenge for you. Here’s the sketch.

Stampin' Up!, Sketch Challenge

And here’s my card for the challenge.

Flourishing Phrases, Stampin' Up!

I just noticed – after looking at this sketch for weeks – that the sentiment is supposed to be on the horizontal strip. Oops! Well – mine’s close.

I have committed to using all my designer series paper this year – and I only have until the end of May! I’m kind of a paper junkie, so I have a lot in my stash. I can do it, though! I used two designs from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper on this card.  The left panel for the sketch is one, and the horizontal band is another. I had to piece two strips to make the band fit, but I think it turned out great.

I stamped the main flower in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on Rich Razzleberry Card Stock, then die cut the small floral center from Daffodil Delight. I used the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and Flourish Thinlits Dies for all the stamped and die-cut images. If you bundle them, you can save 10%. Sadly, I didn’t bundle. I bought the thinlits, thinking I didn’t need the stamps. (I’ve done that before and I always – always – end up buying the stamps too. You’d think I’d learn, right?) So don’t make the same mistake I did. Save 10% and order the bundle.

I used colors from the designer series paper for the card – Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Sahara Sand. They work really well together, I think.

I added a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the main flower and Rhinestone Jewels to the centers of all the flowers to give a little more depth and texture.

So now – check out what Susan and Jackie did for the challenge. I’m sure you’ll be “wowed!” I always am.

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

    The Wink of Stella makes the Rich Razzleberry look like Glimmer Paper! Gorgeous!
