Hello again, stamping friends!

I’m back today with another card for a Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #135!

This is the sketch provided by the design team:


And this is my card:

PCCCS135 a happy thing

This is my first time using the lemon image stamp from this set, called A Happy Thing, which I got for FREE from the Sale-a-bration brochure.  I really liked colouring this, and using the masking technique to stamp the 2 lemons one behind the other.  I did use my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities Markers for the colouring – I know they’ve been discontinued, but as long as they are working fine, I will use them until they dry up.

The lovely DSP in the background is from the Park Lane pack; it has some wonderful designs in this pack!  The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree stamp set, and the flowers were punched using the Petite Petals punch & a retired bitty punch, that could be substituted for the smallest flower in the Boho Blossoms punch.  I used the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch for the scallops on the side, and just layered the 2 colours.  The cardstock colours used in this card are Whisper White, Calypso Coral, and Daffodil Delight.  The ribbon is the 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon – I had some retired Daffodil Delight colour.

I hope you enjoyed this card, and I hope you’ll head over to the Paper Craft Crew page to see the other cards submitted for this challenge, along with those made by the design team.  Voting will start late tonight for this challenge – I appreciate all your votes! 🙂

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
