This is my last week as a guest designer for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge Blog!
I've had a great time doing all the challenges! This week we have a sketch challenge:
Such a nice simple sketch! I have a little secret to tell: I've been invited to design for The Project Bin, a stamp company that features great word sets! I decided this sketch was the perfect opportunity to show off a stamp from one of those I received in my initial DT package, Wise Women. Lookie:
GOJUS!!! (YILM!) I pulled out the Attwell collection papers from Fancy Pants I received from Tombow USA as part of National Scrapbooking day, because I have been itching to use this floral paper, the perfect counter point to the beautiful word stamp.
I love stamps with quotes from Mother Teresa, who always had a pithy way of saying things that were quite profound. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx ink and heat embossed it with clear EP. I then die cut it with a stitched circle die from Simon Says stamp.
I die cut the edges of the floral paper with one of the border dies from the Tim Holtz Stitched Rectangles set and layered it over another piece of the Attwell paper that I ran through the Big Shot with one of the W R Memory Keepers Next Level Quilted embossing folders. I added some Crystal Reflective sequins from Simon Says Stamp to add a little bling.
After that, there didn't seem to be anything else needed. Believe me, I'm always one of those "this will make this mo' bettah" people, but nothing I tried added anything to the card and actually detracted from it, so I left it just like this.
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, Ribbon Resource, Gina K, and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links costs you nothing and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you. Stampin' Up! product links lead to their webstore, so please be sure to indicate your preference in demonstrator if it doesn't come up automatically!
