Stamp-Off Sketch Challenge – Tea & Cake
Happy Friday, Stampers! Today is another Stamp-Off Challenge. This week, it’s a “three square sketch challenge.”
The official title of the challenge is a “Three Square,” but it’s also a sketch. So I started to use alternate shapes, but as I progressed through the process, it ended up being, well, maybe not squares, but rectangles. Check it out.
It’s a little busier than my usual style. I cut the “quadrilaterals” from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP). I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from the Cake Soirée Stamp Set (in case you were wondering where the cake in the title came from) in Tranquil Tide on Soft Seafoam Cardstock, then punched with the Pretty Label Punch. Two squares down!
My up-up-upline rewards us with product for different achievements (Tami Waddell is the best!). I ordered the Time for Tea Bundle for part of a first quarter reward I earned, and I love it! (This is the tea part of the title, of course.) The bundle includes the Time for Tea Stamp Set and the Spot of Tea Framelits Dies. You can buy these separately, but if you bundle them, you save 10%.
I stamped the teacup in Night of Navy Classic Ink on Soft Seafoam Cardstock, and diecut it. (No, I didn’t. I stamped it on Whisper White Cardstock. Then I realized there’s really no Whisper White in the DSP I used, so I sponged it with Soft Seafoam. Save yourself a step and just stamp on Soft Seafoam.)
I stamped the leaf spray in Tranquil Tide also on the “faux Soft Seafoam.” I used a Blender Pen to blend the ink into the leaves, then die-cut them with the coordinating framelit. I added the leaf sprays to a Balmy Blue die-cut frame, then layered the tea cup and half of a Pearlized Doily over the frame. It needed some embellishments, so I added a few Tranquil Tide Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the leaf die-cuts.
I added everything to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, then to a Mint Macaron Card Base.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
