Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Bundled Baby - The Artful Stampers Sketch Challenge #10


Hi

Welcome from Jane Riches' blog! This week we have a sketch challenge to show off with. 

I am meeting a friend for coffee soon and since the last time I saw her, she has had her beautiful baby girl so it was the perfect reason to make a baby card with the Bundled Baby stamp set. :)

I used the Lullaby DSP for my background banners and some retired lace tape and Linen Thread for my ribbon layer. 

I layered these on a background of Kraft card stock and added a bottom border of Hello Honey (punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch), and then decorated with Pearls. 

The cute little baby stamp was coloured with a selection of Blendabilities...the Skin Tone set, Crumb Cake (the lightest one), Daffodil Delight (the lightest one) and Calypso Coral (the lightest one).

This image was then cut with one of the dies from the Chalk Talk Framelits set. 



I also decorated the envelope by stamping with the baby stamp and lined it with some more Lullaby DSP with the help of the Envelope Liners Framelits Die. 



Here's the sketch if you want to play along....



Next on the blog hop is Karlie Yardy

Hope you like my card. Visit my my online store to purchase any of the supplies used to make it.

Stampin' Up! Australia - The Artful Stampers Colour Challenge #9

Hi

This week, the team have a colour challenge to share with you so I thought I would go all out with the Melon Mambo and colour Blended Bloom with the Blendabilities. 

With my shading I only used the medium and light markers on each petal and I used the dark marker to colour those end curly parts of the petal. The middle was coloured with my Encore Gold ink applied with a sponge dauber. 

It is a very CAS card, but because the Melon Mambo flower is so bold, I felt that to add much else would be competing for the eye. 

I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to help me come up with this card....such a great sketch...you could do anything here! 



Here's the list of blog hop participants.....I can't wait to see what our illustrious leader, Alisa Tilsner has come up with this week! She is next on the hop. 

Alison Barclay -that's ME!
