WHEW -- can you believe an entire week has passed already? A day, maybe ... but a week! Unbelievable! But true! And that means another great Sketch and Challenge from Stamping 411, the teaching site that I share with 5 other designers ... I mean, operators! This week's sketch gives you lots of room to stamp images and play around with color and design!
And here's what I created with the sketch! Fun, eh? The Stamp Set is Simply Said. Cardstock used are Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White. I used both 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon and 1/4" Black Gingham Ribbon and one of those adorable flower buttons from the Button latte set. And then there is this adorable ladybug that just flew into the picture! She's created all from 1 3/8" and 1" Circle Punches!
As I will each week for the Saturday Sketch Challenge, I have provided a detailed step-by-step tutorial for this card. The tutorial has a list of all supplies used, measurements for each layer and photos and instructions for each step in the process. The tutorial may not be for everyone -- it's very detailed and for those that can simply look at a picture and copy it, you may not want it. But for others who can't do that and for beginning stampers who are just starting out, I hope you find these tutorials helpful. Sometimes it's nice to just peek over someone's shoulder and see how they do things and that's the way I've tried to write these tutorials -- as If I were sitting across the table with you in my studio, teaching you the basics of cardmaking in a class. You can download and print this week's Tutorial HERE.
Well, that's going to be it for today! I'm so glad that you stopped by and hope you'll come back soon. Don't forget to check out Stamping 411 and if you decide to play along with this week's challenge, I'll look forward to seeing the projects that you create throughout the week.
Stop back tomorrow to hop on the bus for the Big Tour De Freaks! Tomorrow's tour will feature some incredibly talented ladies who will be showcasing some of their favorite Stampin' Up! products that are on the Last Chance List. You won't want to miss it -- we guarantee a wild ride!
Happy Stamping everyone!
