Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!
Today’s sketch it courtesy of Amy (see previous blog). Think she wanted to challenge us by adding angles! Also a MASSIVE Happy Birthday to Amy, who celebrated her big day earlier this week!
It took me a really short time to decide what I wanted to do as I knew I needed to make a card to send to our niece who has recently started University to study Art Photography. We have recently discovered that we both have a mutual obsession with stationery so I promised her some ‘care packages’; I have some really nice things to send her, along with this card 🙂
I love the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set, it’s so versatile. Love how the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set influences so many others and means we get more options of splatter! (which is always fun to use!)
The Greetings Thinlet Dies called out to me from the Catalogue as soon as I saw them but it took me a while to purchase them and use. So glad that I did now though! They cut so lovely with the glimmer paper and look even lovelier in reality!
Now the glitter heat and stick took me a while to like. After re-inking my Versamark though and getting a few tips from my Stampin’ Up! Family I am getting to grips with it. If you’re experiencing difficulties with it make sure you’re not heating for too long as this stuff goes from sticky glue to set glue in seconds!
You can’t really see it in the picture about but I used a Wink of Stella Clear Pen on some of the ‘splatter’ to add a bit more sparkle.
I really hope you’ve liked my project today and that you enjoy the rest of the incredible projects on the hop.
Thanks for ‘hopping’ by! 🙂
