Hello and welcome to the party! It may be April Fool's Day, but we are full of treats, no tricks! Sweet 'n Sassy is doing things a bit differently for this release. To celebrate the release of four new stamp sets, Sweet 'n Sassy will be having four challenges, each with a prize of the new set being featured. You will see each of the four challenges posted on DT member blogs during your blog hop from April first through the third.
I am hosting the sketch challenge, and you guessed it, the winner will receive this super sweet Be Blessed set used to make today's card. This is a stamp set with a cause - more on that below.
Sketch Challenge: I made a deceptively simple sketch for you - feel free to flip the sketch, add layers, foam dots for dimension, wrap ribbon around the bottom half, add a sentiment - so many possibilities!
To enter just make a card following the sketch (a sketch is a layout/design/pattern for a card), and upload it to the Sweet n' Sassy Gallery. There is no need for a keyword.
If you do not have a scallop punch feel free to use circles adhered together, ribbon, or anything that gives one side a special look.
Card Details: For my card, I used my very favorite set from the new releases, Be Blessed. This is a very special stamp set modeled after the real Baby Be Blessed handmade dolls. For every set purchased, Korin will make a $2 donation to Give a Blessing, a charity that supports a different child or family in need each month.
I used Stampin' Up!'s Linen background stamp (retired) and Memento Desert Sand ink, a very light tan, to stamp over my little rag doll to give her a fabric texture.
The doll image itself is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with the Copic Markers you see above (except for the Jade Green which snuck in from another project I was working on at the same time - oops).
I die cut the rectangular Nestabilities frame, then chalked it with blue Shimmers Pearlescent Chalk by Pebbles Ink, then, keeping the paper in the die, I sponged Creamy Caramel Ink by Stampin' Up! into the detail area.
The base of the card is Stampin' Up!'s Close to Cocoa Textured Cardstock (gosh I just love this color and I'm out of it now I think *sob*). Patterned paper is Stampin' Up!'s new textured paper, Parisian Breeze. I punched a few flowers from the paper with my Boho Blossoms punch and added Prima flowers and K&Co. Self Adhesive Pearls.
Keep an eye out for the other challenges on April 2nd and 3rd; play along to win by uploading your challenge card to the Sweet 'n Sassy Gallery by April 10th :) The winner will be announced soon after from a random draw of entries.
Also be sure to join us for the Release Party on April 3rd from 9-11 pm EST for some chatting and silliness.
Thanks for stoppin' by!
