Another week and a new challenge with the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge has arrived.  This week I wanted to play with the Stampin' Up! fabrics.  The Summer Smooches fabric is new fabric that will be available on June 1, 2012 when the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog is available.  SO, for this week, I introduce you to my design team card…


Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge #39

Bright Blossoms with Summer Smooches


Bright Blossoms Stampin Up stamp setThis card originally started with a different vision but as I was playing with the fabric, I realized my "vision" just didn't work.  I ended up tearing strips of the Summer Smooches fabric and adhering them to the Tempting Turquoise Card Stock which is layered on Real Red Card stock.  I used the Bright Blossoms Stamp Set which will be available on June first to stamp the blossom images.  I then used the 1 3/4 circle punch to punch out the vase image with the sentiment and the 1" square punch to punch out the blossoms which are layered on Real Red punched using the 1 1/4" square punch.

The sentiment features the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.  I love this stamp set for the size of the sentiments which work great for "tight" spaces.  This is a fun, bright card which would hopefully cheer anyone up.  Enjoy!
