Oh yes, it’s the 3rd Saturday of the month, which only means one thing around here…. It’s time for the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge!
This month’s sketch was created by the gorgeous Anna Krol, and I cannot wait to see what everyone makes of it!
I think this sketch would be a perfect opportunity to use those fabulous Stitched Shapes Framelits (and I am sure that there will be a few of the ladies who have done just that) however, seeing as they haven’t found a home in my crafty office yet, and I don’t have any oval dies either, I’ve switched things up a bit, and swapped it for some stamping instead!
This card is almost a one layer number actually… thinking about it how cute would it be on some 2 x 2″ tags for Christmas!
A few weeks ago at a Stampin’ Up! event I was reminded of this technique, which is so simple that it probably doesn’t even have name! Stamping with your clear blocks! Here I have inked up my Clear Block (G) in Pool Party, Marina Mist and Watermelon Wonder to create this cool textured, layered stamping look.
The cute doily stamp is from Frosted Medallions, as is the sentiment, and both are stamped in Island Indigo. I almost left it there, but it just needed a little something, and I did think about adding some sparkle, Wink of Stella or Rhinestones, but then no, a simple spritz of Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango will do.
