Man, I really need to clean my stamp room! When I originally made the card for today’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge, I grabbed a piece of designer series paper from a stack on my stamp room table… (the one shown in the background) but I have no clue what the name of it is.. do you?
It’s not in the Sale-A-Bration, Occasions, or Current Idea Book & Catalog.. YIKES!! So, this week I failed my design team partners by not using current stuff on my card!! Sorry guys!
Today’s card reminds me of the infamous Forrest Gump quote… “Life is like a box of chocolates…” Why not a bowl of cherries?
The stamp set however, is current, entitled “Cherish Friendship”. Images in the 4 piece stamp set include a goose (duck?), wooden chair with a basket of flowers, and sentiment (Friends are kind to each other’s hopes and cherish each other’s dreams). The cherries, bowl, and leaves were colored using markers and an aqua painter brush.
Thanks so much was borrowed from the tiny tags stamp set, stamped in night of navy and punched using the jewelry tag punch. After mounting it onto the card with a stampin’ dimensional pop dot, the tiny tag looked a little bland and plain, so I added a mini library clip.
Three pretty self adhesive large basic pearls jewels adorn the corner of Rose Red Designer Series paper.
After attaching rose red grosgrain ribbon across the front two card layers, tiny bows were added with three mini glue dots too.
Everything is quite flat on today’s SQSC22 challenge card, the only dimension is from the raised bowl of cherries, mini library clip and bows.
Today’s sketch challenge would be perfect to use the new labels collection framelits dies… guess I didn’t have mine on hand when I hand crafted today’s card!
