SC 017/11

November 20, 2011

This week at Sunny Challenges and Creations we have a fantastic sketch provided by the very talented Gwen.  Along with using the sketch, we need to have a Nursery Theme.

I don’t have many images suitable for a nursery theme, so I went with the Easy Events stampset.

I started with a base card of Chocolate Chip and added a layer of Whisper White card stock which I embossed using the Stripes Embossing Folder.  I also embossed a piece of Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I attached two strips of Chocolate Chip cardstock to this piece which had been punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and then attached to the front of the card.  I cut the middle sized oval from the Ovals Originals Die from Pretty in Pink cardstock and then embossed it using the Oval Designer Frame Embossing Folder.  I stamped the duck image from the Easy Events stampset onto Bashful Blue card stock using Black Stazon ink and cut the water from the image.  I stamped the same image onto So Saffron card stock and cut the duck out.  I stamped the image onto Pretty in Pink card and cut out the umbrella and hat.  Lastly I stamped the image onto Whisper White card and added all the pieces I had cut out to the image.  Once it was assembled I punched the whole piece using the Extra Large Oval Punch.  This piece then fits very nicely into the embossed oval frame.  I attached this to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “welcome baby” from the Short and Sweet stampset onto Whisper White card stock using Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out using the Large Oval Punch.  I attached it to a Pretty in Pink Scallop Oval and then attached it to the card front using dimensionals.

Now you have seen my creation, pop over to Gwen and Vicky’s blogs for some more inspiration.  Then once you have made your card visit Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  I can’t wait to see the entries this week – and don’t forget this is a Stampin’ Up! only challenge.

Bye for now, Kris.
