Think Pink Cards, SCS, And A Video Too!

Today I’m sharing a video how-to, and FOUR cards!!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month… and so two of my cards are also PINK!!

Soft, sweet, and Clean and Simple (CAS)… that’s the theme for today’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge Design Team!  LOL, the sketch was simple and sweet… so this card popped into my head!P1070393

Pretty In Pink and Neutrals DSP from the paper stacks are complimented by markering, piercing, and faux stitching for a soft and sweet card.  I think this card would make a great card for a little girls’ birthday, new baby, or even a teen don’t you?   It’s also another great card for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!P1070394

A pretty triple loop bow was added to the top of the card… the technique is the same as a double loop bow, you simply wrap one more time around your fingers before tying to secure.P1070395

Embellishments were kept simple…  faux piercing was done with a basic gray stampin’ write marker and mat pack.  A stamped and punched greeting was added from the Friendly Phrases stamp set, and Brushed Silver punched flowers from the itty bitty punch pack were glued direct to paper (DTP) and then topped with basic pearl jewels.P1070399

Overall, the card has a very low profile, easy to mail and very lightweight even with an extra piece of card stock to protect the pearl jewels!SQSC08_on_createdbyu_blogspotCome play along with us this week at the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge… this weeks’ sketch is really very CAS (Clean and Simple)… I know you can do it!  Simply visit the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge Blog to add the “URL” of your creation (not your blog)… you know the drill!


Had a little blog blip yesterday, sorry for the confusion!  The following was supposed to be shared today!!

Today I’m also sharing a new tutorial video! Remember the card published last year in Stampers’ Sampler? (Click here to give it a quick peek.) I was asked by the fabulous Beate Johns from Split Coast Stampers to write and video tape a step by step tutorial for the Shoji Screen Stamping Technique.

LOL… she presented me a little extra twist/challenge too… We all know that October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month… so, my demonstration card needed to be pink! (The original card was gold and black with a hint of green.)

This card is also for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge HSSTP (#88), which is appropriately Think Pink for the Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Here’s the card featured in today’s SCS Tutorial…SharonField_For_splitcoaststampers6

You can find both step by step written instructions and a video tutorial here in the Resource Section of Split Coast Stampers.

Shoji Screen Stamping by Sharon Field for SCS

Just for fun, here are a couple more cards I created in preparation for today’s Split coast Stampers Technique Tutorial…



We’d love to see your creative projects using the shoji screen stamping technique… after viewing the tutorial, visit Splitcoaststampers and upload your creation using the keyword shojiscreen.

Want a blast from the past? LOL… this post shares my first attempt at what I called Shoji Screen Stamping (before W.P. aka waffle paper).

Looking forward to reading your comments!

Sharon this is so clean and elegant! Love the Neutrals DSP, I need to utilize mine more. The flowers and pearls framing the sentiment are the perfect touch. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.
