Wishing You the Best–SSSC #226


Hey, there, and welcome to this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has another classic design for us this week with lots of possibilities.

I’m using some soon-to-be-released products from MFT on today’s card. First of all, and obviously, I flipped the sketch. I started with a Kraft card stock base, then, for the bottom element, I stenciled on some embossing paste with Diagonal Stripes stencil. I love to stencil in design elements—they’re very versatile. Then, using Birthday Chalkboard Greetings, I stamped the sentiment on Steel Gray card stock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I popped that up on foam, then created the gift, using LJD Celebrate You and LJD Celebrate You Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped with Grout Gray ink and Red Hot ink. I popped that up on foam, as well and finished off with some red enamel dots.

A sentiment from
LJD Celebrate You was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray ink.


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