Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch Challenge 400

March 25, 2019

Today’s card has been created using the sketch challenge at Try Stamping on Tuesday as inspiration.  I embossed Whisper White card using the Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Basic Black card.   I took one of the card front pieces of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which I already had chopped and trimmed off two pieces of the front of the card.  I rounded the corners of the pieces using the Envelope Punch Board.  I attached the designer series paper to the embossed card using both sides of the paper.   I stamped the greeting from the Beauty Abounds stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped one of the butterflies from the same stamp set using the same ink.  To colour the butterfly, I stamped the small dotted bokeh image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set over the butterfly using Lemon Lime Twist ink. I rounded the corners of the Whisper White card using the Envelope Punch Board and attached it to Basic Black card which also has the corners rounded. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I trimmed the piece of Designer Series paper left after cutting the pieces for the front.  I attached a strip of Basic Black card behind one long edge of the Designer Series Paper before attaching to the bottom of Whisper White card.

So to make it clear, I cut a piece of Designer Series paper 14.4cm x 10cm along the 14.4cm length at 5.5cm, 10cm and 13.5cm.  I rounded the corners of the 5.5cm x 10cm piece of Designer Series Paper and this is the Black and White Butterfly piece on the card front. The 4.5cm x 10cm piece I trimmed to 4.5cm x 8.5cm and then rounded the corners.  This is the Lemon Lime Twist piece of Designer Series Paper on the card front.  The 3cm x 10cm piece was used on the inside of the card.  There was a narrow strip of about 1.4cm which was wasted from the Designer Series paper piece.  I truly love being able to grab a piece of Designer Series Paper which is cut to card front size and then play with it to suit the needs of my creation.

 

Edited to Add:  Just found out this card was picked as one of the top 3 entries for this challenge at Try Stamping on Tuesday.  I am feeling very honoured.

Bye for now,

Kris

    Such a pretty take on our sketch – I love featuring both sides of a DSP on one card, too! I also love that you used the bokeh to color your butterfly – I’m totally trying that! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!
