simply stampin' challenge week 49

Good morning all! 

Can you believe its Saturday again?! Geesh! This week has just flown by and in all honesty I don't know where its gone! Its another Simply Stampin' Challenge today and this week is a sketch challenge! Its a nice simple one for you all! Enjoy...

Just For You 

Stamp Set: Tagtastic, Borderlines
Ink: Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink
Ribbon: Very Vanilla Velvet, Victoria Crochet Trim, Very Vanilla Taffeta 
Punch: Decorative Label
Accessories: Pearls

To start with I rotated the sketch 90 degrees! (You're allowed to do that you know!) Now, I stamped the leaf branch from borderlines on the cardstock - I have to admit I got this set because I thought it was so cute and for some reason hardly touched to so I've been trying to find creative ways of using it! I stamped it three times at varying heights just for added appeal. I then added some strips of velvet and crochet trim ribbon to make up the next layer of the card. for the top layer I stamped, coloured in and punched out the tag with "just for you" on it . I layered a little Pretty in Pink cardstock behind it. Finally I finished it off with a tafetta ribbon bow and some pearls.

I hope you like it! Please check out the other creations on the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog. Please do leave me a comment, I love reading them! 

Happy Stampin',

    1. Thanks! I'm glad it worked out in the end. I had no idea where I was going with it - you should see my work area now, looks like a bomb hit it! I see you got your picture to appear!? xx

  3. Really lovely! I haven't used it yet either but now I'm inspired! xx

  4. Love how you interpreted the sketch Amanda, clever use of the borderlines stamp set! Again you have come up with a fab card! Kirei x

  5. So soft and pretty with the colors, pearls, and crochet trim! Beautiful!

  6. That is really pretty. I had to look through the book to work out which set it is. Amazing when you see something through someone elses eyes. Grand job.

    1. Aw thank you so much :) Yes its always interesting to see how someone else interperets/uses a stamp! xx
