“I thought of you today” – what a wonderful sentiment that let someone know how special they are to you. A friend doesn’t have to be hurting to appreciate this sweet acknowledgment. Paired with flowers and leaves from Painted Seasons, this sentiment from Climbing Roses really shines. Here’s my notecard-sized card:
And here’s the banner for Donna Mikasa’s sketch challenge that inspired my card:
- Two Great Bundles. My simple card features stamp sets from two great bundles – one that’s can be selected with a $100 order during Sale-a-Bration, and one from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog. The flowers are leaves are stamped with the Distinktive images in the Painted Seasons Bundle (stamp set and Designer Series Paper). Such a brilliant, beautiful images! Here’s a closer look at this bundle that can be earned during Sale-a-Bration:On March 1, Stampin’ Up! released a collection of Sale-a-Bration Coordination products (you can see all of them here) – and one of those is the Four Seasons Framelits Dies that coordinate with the Painted Seasons stamp set. The sentiment on my card is from the Climbing Roses stamp set – part of the Climbing Roses Bundle:
- Create a Template. I made this notecard-sized card with my local stamp club over the weekend. It was exciting to watch each person stamp with these flowers and gasp at how beautiful they are on paper. When arranging stamped images on a card front, it can be difficult to find the right placement of elements – how to find the right balance of elements on the card. I played around with several configurations before finding the balance that worked with the size of card and punched sentiment:This is how the stamped panel looks without the sentiment. I passed this around at club to share an example of how these flowers can balance on the card. If I were going to make multiples of this card, I’d use this template as a reference point.
- Story Label. The Climbing Roses sentiment (have I already told you how much I love it?) is stamped with Mossy Meadow ink on Crumb Cake and punched out with the Story Label punch. Here’s a closer look:The Story Label Punch was released on March 1 with the other Sale-a-Bration Coordination items that can be purchased (and add to your sales totals so you can earn more Sale-a-Bration products). If you love punches (and why wouldn’t you), this is a great one to add to your collection:
Stamp Sets: Climbing Roses, Painted Seasons Papers: Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White Inks: Mossy Meadow Accessories: Story Label Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge. This challenge goes live at 10:00 AM EST.
