Flowering Sketch

It's time to get creative with the monthly card sketch at SSINKspiration. You will definitely want to go over and check out the variety of ways that the design team was INKspired by this sketch.

Even though fall is my favorite time of year, and I'm anxious for it to get here; I'm having a hard time letting go of the bright colors of summer.

This card features a Rich Razzleberry base with a layer of Designer Series Paper from Confetti Celebration. I stamped the "hello" from Endless Birthday Wishes in Rich Razzleberry, directly on to the DSP.

My favorite part of this card is the flowers. I cut three flowers out of Baja Breeze with the Floral Frames Framelits. To give them some added texture, I used my bone folder to curl them from both sides. This technique breaks down the fibers of the cardstock, allowing you to peel the layers apart. What you are seeing on this card is the inside of one of the layers. One of the many reasons that I love Stampin' Up! cardstock and the fact that it is dyed all the way through.

For the center of the flowers, I got out my Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks, along with a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock and Tangerine Tango ink. I used a sponge dauber to fill in three of the dots on the mask. Then I used my 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch to punch them out. Perfect!

The grand finale for this card was to layer a piece of Early Espresso cardstock behind the flowers to give them a little more "pop."

As always, pin it if you love it. Remember to play along with our sketch by linking up at SSINK, and tagging your project with #ssinkcs12 anywhere that you post it!
