Casual Crafting - Sketch Challenge


I'm back with another casual card for the Casually Crafting Blog Hop. We're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that love to stamp and love to share.  We share card and projects that are simple and easy to create with a few products and are perfect for the beginner and casual stamper.  Our blog hop goes live on the third Saturday of each month.  I hope you'll join us and "hop" around our group to be inspired!

Today's card is based on a sketch.  It was fun to create a card using this sketch as inspiration without using my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and dies!


Here's my card. 




Instructions

  1. Cut Crumb Cake cardstock 5 1/2" x  8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal
  3. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Stamp leaf using Shade Spruce ink on the left hand side of the card.
  5. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  6. Stamp 2 large daisies on Calypso Coral cardstock using Calypso Coral ink.
  7. Punch out daisies using large Daisy punch.
  8. Adhere one daisy on top of the other daisy using a Dimensional - off setting petals
  9. Stamp 2 small daisies on Crumb Cake cardstock using Crumb Cake ink.
  10. Punch out daisies using small Daisy punch.
  11. Adhere one daisy on top of the other daisy using a Dimensional - off setting petals
  12. Wrap Linen Thread around palm of hand 3 times and pinch the middle together.  Adhere to Basic White cardstock under leaf using Stampin' Seal.
  13. Adhere large to Basic White cardstock over Linen Thread a Dimensional
  14. Adhere small daisy to the right of the large daisy using a Dimensional.
  15. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Calypso Coral ink.
  16. Cut out using Paper Snips.
  17. Adhere to the bottom right side of card.  Use Stampin' Seal on the left end and 2 Mini Dimensionals on the right end.
  18. Add 3 Elegant Faceted Gems around sentiment.
