I know that I owe you another post about the blog hop projects from last week but I wanted to share a card that I made using the Control Freaks Sketch Challenge for this month. This is just an internal challenge for the group but you know that I can’t resist a sketch!!
I needed a birthday card for one of my oldest son’s best friends. Hmmm, stamping for a 9 year old girl….what to make??!! Out came Betsy’s Blossoms and the Floral District DSP! I mimicked the colors from the paper for the flower colors on the stamped panel. Stampin’ Write Markers are so fantastic for creating these multi-colored images!! Then I inked up the big blossom with Daffodil Delight and stamped it. Using the new Elegant Butterfly Punch, I created this sweet butterfly. By putting the top of the punch near the center of the flower, the pattern looks so pretty and directional. My new favorite sentiment set, Made For You, was the perfect fit and a little scallop using the Adorning Accents Edgelit finished it off. I am winding down on my “summer” color stamping and I seem to be transitioning to fall colors. Glad I got this one done before that happens completely. Yes, Seasonal Stamper’s Disorder is taking over. *smile*
I have enjoyed my week with the boys so I thank you all for understanding the lack of posts. We went to the apple orchard on Thursday and got 30, yes 30, pounds of apples! YUM! Made homemade applesauce that night and I think an apple crisp is on the menu tonight (recipe care of my lovely friend Rita Wright). The boys met their teachers yesterday and school starts on Monday. Always a bittersweet thing! The good news is that I will have some more time for stamping (but I will miss the craziness around the house I’m sure). Thanks for dropping in today. See you soon with the paint can and tag details from the hop!
