HSS Sketch Theme #51

Good Morning Stampers! I love this weeks Sketch template for Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge. Check out the template that is our inspiration- lets see what you can create from this sketch. Hop on over to HSS and play along.

This week I created this cute card. I love Kiwi Kiss, it is one of most favorite greens that is in our color families. I love this designer paper too, I still have a bit left over and am so sad that it is retired. I used it all the time for a good long while there and just came across it a few days ago. I have been dying to get this sentiment in the stamp set but haven’t broken down and done it yet, so I printed it off of MDS (My Digital Studio) and mounted it on another piece of card stock, I think it turned out nicely.
I love layering the scallop and circles, I cant wait for Sale-A-Bration to come around so I can get the larger circle punch and the large scallop dies to make even larger embellishments. The only thing I wish I had done differently is the background. I wish I had run it through my texture plates and given the card stock some design. I didn’t think about it until I looked at it here in the photo… ugh.

I love using the scallop edge punch as well, I have almost perfected the art of getting every scallop perfect. I am very slow and meticulous when I use this punch cause I hate to have one scallop that is messed up and the rest look normal.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks project, and I really appreciate your patience in regards to my craft space update. I have had it like 90% done for almost 2 weeks and then my church calling took me away and then I got a stomach bug and when I went past it today to take photos- somehow it was a disaster… so give me a few more days to get a couple more things up and the place cleaned and then I PROMISE I will share it with you all. I fear that I have built up the expectation for this room way too high, it really is quite ordinary. Thanks for stopping by and until next time~ TTFN

We Love to Hear From You
