Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Well, considering both of my boys have the Chicken Pox and I am TRAPPED in my house right now... what better to do than stamp???  I decided to play with the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge this week.  I love how clean and simple their sketches are.  Now this particular card is like nothing I've done before... you're probably asking yourself what's so special about it.. well, I had to cut things out!  I generally stick to stamped images that can be punched or that are on a portion that does not need to be cut out.  I did have fun with this though:)

Stamp Set(s):  Cottage Garden, Tiny Tags
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, Poppy Parade, Whisper White,  Sunny Garden DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait
Embellishments: Pear Pizzaz 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon
Tools: Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Paper Snips
Adhesives: Snail,  Dimensionals
Punches: Small Tag, Large Tag


  1. I love it! It's fresh, it's fun! Good job!


  2. Love the crisp, clean look of this card...the bright colors against the white are so peppy :)

  3. Well I love what you did with this card and our sketch!! Glad you got to join us this week but sad to hear about your boys!! I hope they get over them very fast!!! Thanks for playing along with us this week!!!

  4. This is beautiful - love the colors and the snipped flowers! It's so crisp!

  5. I absolutely love this card. I love the tags punches and you used them so well here! I also love Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade...two of my favorite colors. Excellent job!

  6. gorgeous card. Love your colour combos and you did good cutting out the flowers. I know how it feels to get trapped in the house. First week of Summer break I was quarantined to my house with 2 kids with Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease. Lucky for me it sounds worse than it is. If it wasn't for blisters everywhere I would not have known that they were sick. Hopefully your boys are the same!

  7. As tough as Chicken Pox is now...it is better than getting it at age 35 like I did! Great card...love the flower colors on the crisp white background!

  8. Very cute card! Great color combo! TFS
