Stampin' Up! UK Simply Sketched Challenge Week 1

The lovely Sam Johnson has designed this lovely sketch this week, and it scared the pants off me! However, after about a week of staring at it, and find some further inspiration in Instagram, I finally managed to actually make something!

Stampin' Up! UK Sketch Challenge Lovely Lace Die cutting Card

Definitely outside of my usual clean and simple style, but I’m super pleased with this card. I used my favourite embossing folder, Lovely Lace, to emboss a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I love this folder so much that I actually need to replace it – its currently held together with parcel tape! Shocking I know, but that is how much use it has had!

Once I had the piece embossed I added ink around the edges of the card stock with my Stampin’ sponges, inked in Tip Top Taupe, Chocolate Chip and Blackberry Bliss. I have been taking colour inspiration from the packs of Designer Series Paper recently, and have done the same here – using the Farmers Market Paper Pack.

Stampin' Up! UK Simply Sketched Challenge Hello You

I added two strips of the Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the card after using my Triple Banner Punch to fishtail the ends, and completed the sketch with a Vellum circle added with two Glue Dots.

The sentiment is taken from the Crazy About You stamp and die bundle, and I used my Blackberry Bliss ink to emboss the word Hello – mainly because the ink takes so long to dry on Vellum, adding some clear embossing powder and heat setting it meant that I could get this card finished! The die cut ‘You’ is in Tip Top Taupe and is attached using Tombow Multi-purpose glue.

I finished the card with four of the Metal Rimmed Pearls
