Stampin' Up! Easy Events Stamp Set


Stampin' Up! Easy EventsThe Easy Events stamp set is such a great, versatile stamp set perfect for the new stamper.  This set has a good number of stamps that cover a variety of events.  I really enjoyed creating this card using the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge #9.  A friend recently had a baby boy and I needed to create a cute "Congratulations Baby Card" for the big event. 

Sunny Girl Scraps Helpful Hints:

  • Use blender pens to soften the coloring on the stamped image if you decide to color in the image especially for a baby card.
  • Layer darker colors lightly over lighter colors to add dimension when coloring an image.  In this case, I used pumpkin pie to lightly add depth to the ducky image.
  • Use the Stampin' Write Markers for a brighter, more saturated color when coloring an image. 
  • Using a background stamp with heat embossing is a great way to create texture on a card and fun to do!
  • Start from the outside and work towards the center when coloring in the stamped image to create shading and depth.
  • Sketches are a great way to help get the "juices" flowing and have fun without a whole lot of extra work.

Stampin' Queens Sketch ChallengeThe basis for this card starts with the Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge # 9.  I think you'll love this weeks sketch…

Actually, I'm really excited about this weeks sketch.  It is the first sketch that I've created for the Stampin' Queens so I also had fun creating this baby card as an interpretation of my sketch.  The sketch itself is beautiful and I made it using My Digital Studio.  So, I challenge you to play along and create YOUR create your creative interpretation of this weeks sketch with the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge #9.  For additional interpretations and inspiration, visit the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge blog!
