Well, I finally had time to stamp today! This is the first of the sketches that Ruthie will be doing for the month of November, and I really like this sketch! You can see the list of participants in this week's sketch here. Here it is, DIVASC161.
When I saw it, I immediately had an idea. I had seen a really cute card by Monika Davis, which inspired me to buy the set "Not So Seriously." (page 55, IB&C, #123087, $25.95) And here's what I did with it. I combined DIVASC161 with color challenge PPA118, and here's my card.
Stamps: Not So Seriously
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Inks: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, River Rock, Black Staz-on
Accessories: Soft Suede 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon, neutrals brads, word window punch, Modern Label punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, circle punch, stripes embossing folder
I need to stop working at night because I hate using a flash for my photography! I would much rather have natural daylight to take my photos. You can hardly see the striped embossing in the background. Sad...
Oh, I saw the greatest idea today for the word window punch, and now I don't remember where I saw it! The "top dog" greeting was too long for the word window punch, so I measured the length I needed, folded a piece of card stock in half and used the window punch on the folded card stock to get the longer length. I did the same thing with the modern label punch. If you look closely, you may see the fold in the papers. If you have any questions, I can take a photo later to show you. Just give me a holler!
Thanks for stopping by today! If you have time to leave a comment, I really appreciate them! It let's me know that people are actually stopping by.
Blessings to you and yours,
