This week for the Stampin’ Queen’s Sketch Challenge 14, I bring you the following rendition of Dasher!


Elegant Dasher


Stampin' Up! Elegant DasherElegant Dasher is beautiful, just shining in Real Red glory.  I loved this weeks sketch and was blown away after I completed this card.  In fact, I no longer have the card as it has been sold to a friend.  I love seeing my creations blessing others and was thrilled when my friend decided to buy it.

One of my favorite features is the flag tag that I created.  But I also love the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty Designer Series Paper that glitters and shines.  Oh, darn, I just love this card!  I admit it, I’m addicted to monochromatic cards especially with the Real Red and Very Vanilla.

Sunny Girl Scraps Tips & Tricks:

  • I love the BIG SHOT!  Use the Big Shot with the Textured Embossing Folder to create beautiful backgrounds with dimension.
  • To create the tag, use the corner of the Square Punch to create the notch.  Quick and easy, so much better than trying to hand cut!.
  • Dasher is an A la Carte Stampe priced at $8.95 which makes it a great, economical purchase perfect for the new stamper!


For project inspiration, here is this weeks Stampin’ Queens Sketch for SQSC 14!  Sketches really are a great way to get started especially for new stampers as they take the guess work out of HOW to create a card.  As you gain confidence in your new craft then you can start to explore and find your inner designer.
