SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

Well, we definitely got that Nor’easter yesterday! Crazy winds and lots of rain last night. There were power lines down and all sorts of other storm related things happening. I was glad to be in the house, binge watching This is Us! Completely addicted to the show, I’m up to episode 9! The earlier part of yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was busy. Renee had her Home Decor Class, lots of people coming in to paint their wood pieces. I managed to get a few things done and ran to the Post Office to mail out some crafty goodness, always a highlight of the day! Today, more projects to do! Love my job! 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

The first thing I did to create my card was to stamp the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Soft Brown and the heart and love from the Concord & 9th Tree Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Crimson Hybrid using my Mini MISTI onto Ivory 110lb, I triple stamped the tree ring and double stamped the heart and love. They are trimmed out with my Scissors and put aside. To my card base of Ivory 110lb I adhered a piece of Carta Bella Beach Day Surf Shop 12×12 Paper. Much the Renee’s delight I inked the edges with Soft Brown using my Mini Ink Blending Tool! (she likes to ink everything!) The paper is then adhered, a little askew, to the base. I used Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the tree ring and heart to the card. I slipped a piece of Chinese Red in between. It needed a little subtle sparkle so I added some Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry and Sand Sequins and the card is finished! We all know how I love a little woodgrain and that’s why I love that Paper and Tree Ring Stamp! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and get inspired by the rest of the Team and add your card to the gallery! Thank you for stopping by! Have a nice Tuesday! 🙂
