Hello everyone! I guess it must be Friday already since here I am, getting ready to share a new Stamping 411 Sketch with you. I guess .... but oh my goodness, how quickly the weeks are passing! Unbelievable!!!!
We've got a fun sketch for you this week! One that leaves lots of room for your creativity to shine! As you can see, I changed it out a little. I left out one layer and reversed the focal image and sentiment (I wanted the peacock to be looking toward the center of the card, not off the edge). I was originally going to use some of the beautiful International Bazaar Designer Series Paper but decided the images were just too busy with the peacock, so will save that for another day. I did, however, pull my colors from that in the DSP -- Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango. How's that for BRIGHT!!!!!
To create the peacock, I stamped the image three different times in three colors and then cut out the images, each time using a different layer of "feathers" as my cutting guide. Other supplies used for this card include: The Big Shot and the new Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, the Scallop Border Punch, Adhesive Basic Rhinestones, Apothecary Accents Framelets Dies. As you can see, I also did some stamping on the inside of the card.
- Layer One -- Lucky Limeade Cardstock cut to 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded to make the Card Base
- Layer Two -- Rich Razzleberry Cardstock cut to 4 x 5.25"
- Layer Three -- Pacific Point Cardstock cut to 1 x 4" -- trim edge with Border Punch and add Ribbon and Bow
- Layer Four -- Tangerine Tango Cardstock cut to 2.75 x 4" -- Add focal image and sentiment
That's it for tonight, friends! Thanks so much for stopping by! I do hope you found some inspiration waiting for you here! And speaking of inspiration, make sure and check out the projects that the other Stamping 411 Operators created this week! Thanks again and I hope you'll be back soon!
