CS37T Masking with Flores Suaves

When I first saw that today’s Creative Sketches Design Team Challenge involved the masking technique, I immediately reached for the Flores Suaves Stamp Set!  I use the masking technique so often with this stamp set, the post it note mask is already cut out and in place with the stamps!

LOL… had to change up the shape of the focal image for the challenge, opting for a square vs. rectangle as defined in the sketch.  This card literally took me 5 minutes to make!

LOVE the new scallop edged ribbon… it will be featured in the new 2011-12 Idea Book and Catalog when released on July 1st!  The ribbon is reversible so you can use it polka dotted side up with whisper white card stock, or plain side up, with very vanilla and other tones.

The bow was ‘fastened’ with a large Very Vanilla 3/8” brad topped with a Basic Jewel Pearl.  To make the brad fit around the ribbon loops, you need to open up the prongs with a pair of needle nose pliers, and then wrap around the bow.

Had a little fun with the ’tag’ greeting I added to the background… after stapling the ribbon in place, it was topped with the tiniest daisy from the Paper Daisy pack… and another large basic jewel pearl.

Today’s project features Pacific Point, Basic Gray, and Whisper White Card Stock.  Additional accents and inks are in Chocolate Chip.

Here’s the original sketch, which is to be used with the masking technique.  I tweaked it a bit to work with my creative flow of the day… LOL!

Come play along with us at the Creative Sketches Design Team… we’d love to see your creativity at work!

Tomorrow is my Sisters’ birthday… happy birthday Susan!  Hope it’s a good one, you deserve to have some fun!

Latest update on my AT&T saga… had a call this evening from the newest Tier Level Two Support Representative from the Escalation Department… which unfortunately, was left on one of my home lines… NOT the one they were supposed to contact me on.

Needless to say, I have spent in excess of 2 more hours trying to get back to this cowboy… who left a call back number which is not working.  His message told me the problem/issue was resolved.  Guess what… It’s not!! 

And so the saga continues… same time tomorrow.. you just have to laugh at the inefficiencies, or it will make you crazy!!

Hugs,

Sharon

Lovely card.

How do you even have time to create such beautiful cards with all the phone annoyance? Hope it is settled soon. I would probably have pulled my hair out by now. Your patience and understanding are as amazing as your creativity.
