It’s time for another Stamp Off with Jackie, Susan, and me. This time, it’s a sketch from Susan.

Stamp Off Sketch Challenge

How fun is that? I usually try to change things in a sketch challenge – use a different shape, or a sentiment where the embellishments are, or stamp instead of using paper or ribbon. But this time, I didn’t change much at all. Even my embellishments are round.

Beautiful You, Touches of Texture, Stampin' Up!

This was designed on one of the days I was using glitter. The diamond and square layers were designed for a sampler our demonstrator team is making. We are each making nine of the same squares, and then we’ll swap with each other, so we’ll have nine different squares on our samplers. (This is a horrible explanation, but I’ll post it when it’s finished and it will make more sense.) The swap isn’t until January, but I wanted to get a head start. I also wanted to use my Watercolor Pencils and the Beautiful You stamp set. Alas, the Rich Razzleberry seemed to coordinate with the Blushing Bride a lot better in my stamp room. I needed to add some yellow or orange to tone it down a bit. Still, I loved the way it turned out with the Touches of Texture stamped background on the Sahara Sand layer, the glitter around the doilies, and the “diamond” necklace – which is dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Dazzling Diamonds. I love Dazzling Diamonds glitter!

When I looked at our sketch again, I realized that my square for the sampler was perfect for it – so I embossed the front of a Blushing Bride card base with the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, added some 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, and some Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape. The square fit perfectly on top.

For the embellishments, I used Pearl Basic Jewels, because, again, I wanted to try something new. I wanted Blushing Bride pearls with a little sparkle. I used some clear (retired) Dazzling Details mixed with Blushing Bride Classic Ink Refill over the pearls. It added some shimmer, some color, and enough glue that the shimmer and color wouldn’t slide off the pearls. If you don’t have Dazzling Details, I think you could probably mix some Fine-tip Glue with glitter and ink refill and add it with a paintbrush. I’ll try that one day.

So now, go see what Jackie and Susan have for you. Although we usually never know what the others are creating, Jackie & Susan tend to use the same stamps or die-cuts for the challenges. It’s not planned (at least, I don’t think it is), they just think alike. I’m excited to see if they do it again!

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

    Buffy, yes, I love the colored pencils, but it is so limiting to try to make everything match back to just a few colors. I really like all the textures on this card, including the lace doilies and burlap. Very cool.

    Beautiful card, Buffy! I like the Rich Razzleberry with the Blushing Bride. The diamond necklace is brilliant; I bet this card looks even more amazing in person.
