Now for my first sketch challenge. This one is for Peachy Keen Stamps. You can look at the challenge, to create a card that includes three of something surrounded by a frame with a background border. You can see the sketch here.
For this challenge, I started with Cricut cartridge Sentimentals and Doodlecharms. I used my Gypsy to cut the postage stamp layers and the envelopes, using patterned paper from Me and My Big Ideas and Paper Studio cardstock. I stamped faces on each envelope using PK-490 Everyday Faces from Peachy Keen Stamps in Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Gellie Roll pen, I colored in the whites of the eyes.
I glued all the layers of the postage stamp together and added stitch lines with my Zig marker. Then I popped up each envelope with Stampin' Up Dimensionals.
For the background, I layered patterned paper from Me and My Big Ideas on a strip of blue Paper Studio cardstock. I used a border punch from Fiskars and adhered all of this to yellow cardstock. I added stitch lines with my Zig marker. I Layered all of this on red cardstock and then on a white card base that measures 7 1/2 x 5 1/2. Then I added the ribbon from my stash.
Since I don't have too many stamps, I hand wrote the sentiment at the top right of the card. I am having so much fun with these challenges. Problem is, I don't know what I'm going to do with all of these cards. I've never been a card giver. Guess I'm going to have to start collecting address so I can send them out to family and friends.
