simply stampin' challenge 70

Hey there! 

So I have been organised enough to do my DT entries for Simply Stampin' in advance for the weeks I am away. At the moment I'm either in Wisconsin, North Carolina or South Carolina depending on when you're reading this. We have a fun and packed schedule! Love it!

This week is a sketch challenge...

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Soft Suede
Cardstock: Whisper White, Soft Suede
DSP: Attic Boutique
Big Shot: Framelits
Punch: 1 3/8" Circle
Accessories: Rhinestone Brads
Ribbon: Chantilly Crochet Trim

I just couldn't make this sketch work, eventually I got something down that I am mildly happy with. Its not great but its okay. I used the framelits with Attic Boutique DSP for the main focal point shapes and gave them a thin border of Soft Suede around the edge. I used another piece of the DSP in the background with more Soft  Suede - I used a circle punch for the scallop edge. My final addition was a crochet trim bow with a rhinestone brad in the centre! 

Go to Simply Stampin' to see the other DT entries and enter yourself! 

Happy Stampin',

  1. I think you are being a bit hard on yourself about the card - it's a great card! I think the layout is a clever use of the sketch! That little bow is so cute and love the cut out of the pink rose from the DSP.
    Hope you are enjoying your holiday!! Deb x

  2. I really like this card Amanda, it's really pretty and a great take on the sketch! Love the yummy bow with the gem brad!

    Enjoy your holiday - have a wonderful time! Ruth x
