Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge 230

August 8, 2015

026Oh my goodness I can’t believe how long it is since I completed a card sketch challenge, I always seem to be busy creating cards for my weekly class and never have time for the challenges each week.  So this week I decided to create the cards for my class using the challenges to get my “mojo” going.  The challenge at Try Stamping on Tuesday this week is to use a photo and sketch or just the photo or just the sketch.  I used the sketch.

I attached Whisper White card to scored and folded Pink Pirouette card.  Next I rounded the corners on a piece of Mossy Meadow card using the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch and embossed it using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder027The embossed piece is attached to the Whisper White card.  I stamped the branch image from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  I rounded the corners of the stamped card, attached it to Pink Pirouette card, also with the corners rounded and then the card front using dimensionals.  I punched the flowers from Pink Pirouette card using the Tree Builder Punch, gave them a little dimension and attached them over the stamped flowers using a little Tombow Glue to hold them in place.  I also added the three flowers to the top right hand corner of the Whisper White card.  Each flower has a tiny Basic Pearl in the centre as well. 029 I stamped the greeting from the Petite Pairs stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink and punched it out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch.  The greeting is also attached to the card front using dimensionals.

Inside I added a panel of Mossy Meadow card which is embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, a narrow strip of Pink Pirouette card and three more flowers.

I’ve always loved the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set, which I have had a long time, but I tend to use my newer stamp sets and leave the older ones neglected on the shelf.  Another reason I don’t use this one so much is because it is a Wood Mount set and I have to get out my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position it correctly.  I guess I am getting spoilt by all the photopolymer stamp sets I now own.  What about you?  Are you like me, do you neglect your wood mount stamps in favour of the newer cling mount or photopolymer stamp sets?

Bye for now,

    This is a really pretty card, Kris. I love your color combo and the fact that you used the “Thoughts and Prayers” stamp set, I feel like we don’t see nearly enough of that one! Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday this week. Crystal

    What a beautiful, serene card….I haven’t used that stamp set for a long time, and I love how you added the blossoms! Thanks for sharing this with us at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday!

    Such a beautiful card, Kris. It’s perfect to send to someone who has lost a loved one. I have to admit my set is very neglected and it’s not even a wood mount set! I don’t have a lot of those anymore because they take up too much room! Thanks for sharing with us this week at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday.
