I’m Always Here For You–SSSC #212


Hi, all, today I have the latest Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for you. This is a classic sketch and we hope to see lots of you playing along this week.

My card started with a Steel Gray card stock base, onto which I stenciled some modeling paste using On the Diagonal Stencil. I wanted the stenciling to show so I stamped the sentiment, from LJD Words of Inspiration, on some vellum with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. To keep the adhesive from showing, I used my Quickie Glue pen and just drew some glue onto the embossing from the back, then glued it down. Next I added a Leafy Flourish Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock and a Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics cut from Insulation Pink card stock. To add “veins” to the petals, I swiped each one with an Adirondack paint dauber in Copper. LOVE that look! I also swiped the modeling paste a little with the dauber to add some color to it.

The inside has another sentiment from LJD Words of Inspiration.


And that’s it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
