Every Year Knowing You- A Clean and Layered Sketch :-)

Hi Again Stampers!

I have one more Clean and Layered (CAL) card to share that I created using the FMS142 Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

Again, I hope you will take the time (if you have not done so already) to visit their site to check out all of the other Design Team entries as well as the gallery- great inspiration from all :-)

I decided to use an image from My Digital Studio (MDS) to create this CAL card:

Open a blank 8.5’ x 11” document in MDS, insert the Pleasant Poppies stamp image, enlarge and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color using the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collection , adding shadows with the Stampin’ Write Sahara Sand marker and floral centers using the Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker. Add a few highlights to the flower centers using the Chalk Marker.

Round the corner of the colored floral image using the Envelope Punch Board, layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock (rounding the corner with the Envelope Punch Board as well).

Mount onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock (stamped with the retired En Francais background stamp using Old Olive Classic Ink) and adhere the entire panel to the Basic Black card base.

Stamp the image from Bloom with Hope using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.   Mount onto the card front and add the 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon bow.

Add a few Pearls to the upper left hand and lower right hand corners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Pleasant Poppies, Bloom with Hope, En Francais

Ink:  Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Old Olive, Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Blendabilities- Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Collection, Stampin’ Write markers- Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Chalk Marker

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Old Olive

Accessories: 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks again for taking stopping by- I will be posting a few more cards later today.  Have a wonderful Monday!
