My Sweet Pea

As I haven't been able to join in SWU challenge for a while I thought I would pop over and see what they were doing .

This weeks challenge is a sketch and here is my take on the sketch.

I have used the new Sweet Pea DSP also the stamp set My Sweet Pea from the New Mini Catalogue (these are my new favourites - well for now anyway) lol.

Firstly I took one of the stamps and stamped all over the piece of DSP that I had eventually chosen (so much choice in this pack) with tempting turquoise and pumpkin pie Stampin' Write Markers and then distressed the edges with the distressing tool from Stampin' Up! cutting tool pack (I love this tool) then I went around this edge with the pumpkin pie marker. I then stamped the images onto whisper white using tempting turquoise and pumpkin pie stampin' write markers, using the scalloped square punch on sweet pea DSP ( the reverse side of main piece) don't you just love these colours; I punched out 3 squares and mounted this with stampin' dimensionals onto the main card. Using the markers I inked the stamp from whimsical words set punched out with the word window punch.

A lovely sketch girls really enjoyed making this card and so quick too.

Bye until next time

New Two Step Bird Punch

On this card I have used the New Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch and the New Sweet Pea Designer Series Papers and New Stitched Felt flowers all from the New Mini Catalogue. The papers are excellent as always and the choice is too much! This card came together very quickly - once I had made my choice of papers. I inked over the circle to look like a moon behind the bird - well that was my thought as I was making the card, the inking is not showing up too well in the photo.
Card Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, So Saffron; DSP Sweet Pea Mini Cat; Punches Two Step Bird, 13/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punches; Ribbon Old Olive; New Felt Stitched Flowers Sweet Pea Mini Cat.
