Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge Time Again

I was able to squeeze some extra stamping time in and decided to play with the Stamping 411 sketch challenge this week.

I am running out of designs that are current so I decided to take a Christmas Time stamp and make it Spring Time stamp.

I used Gifts of Christmas and Friends Never Fade stamp sets to make my card. I first stamped the flower from Friends Never Fade in Blushing Bride and then used the Rock and Roll technique to give the outside edges a deep color. For the Rock and Roll I used Rose Red. Then I embossed it with the Lattice Embossing Folder. My card base is Blushing Bride.

I colored the main image with Stampin Up Markers and layered this on a piece of Blushing Bride. I made two borders with the Dotted Scallop Border Punch and then I tied a piece of Blushing Bride ribbon onto this layer.


Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.

Peg, your springtime take on this stamp is BEAUTIFUL! I've wanted this stamp for ages but always shied away from it because I thought it was limited to holiday-only. Guess I can put it back on my wish-list now ;-)
