Thinking of You for a sketch challenge

Hello and thanks for joining me.

This week the lovely Patricia Smith has given us this sketch to use for the challenge in her ‘Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations’ Facebook group…

As I hadn’t used the lovely Rooted In Nature stamp set for a while I chose it for the main sentiment. I also hadn’t used any of the lovely Garden Lane designer series paper yet so I chose a design from that pack and here’s the result…

I love the combination of Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam in some of the designs from the pack so I chose them as my card and ink colours too.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card that measures 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm to create a portrait tent fold card.

I cut a piece of Mint Macaron card that measures 14 x 10 cm and a piece of the designer series paper (DSP) to measure 14 x 9 cm which I then split into panels that are 2 cm, 5 cm and 2 cm wide. This means that the pattern is split with 0.5 cm between the panels. The DSP was added to the Mint Macaron card which was added to the card base.

I stamped the Thinking Of You in Mint Macaron ink onto Very Vanilla card and cut it with a Layering Circle die. I used another die from the set on Soft Sea Foam card and glued them together then onto the card.

The finishing touch was to add 3 pearls.

I really like this card layout and may use it again soon.

Why not pop over to ‘Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations’ Facebook group and join in with the fun? You’d be made very welcome I’m sure. You don’t need to use current Stampin’ Up! products to take part in the challenges but many of us do, so it’s a great place for inspiration.

I’ve listed the products I’ve used below. You can click on any of the links to visit my friend Valerie’s online Stampin’ Up! store if you’d like to buy any of them.

Happy crafting,
