CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #256

It's sketch week at CAS Colours & Sketches and the Design Team has some wonderful inspiration to get you started.

It took a bit of thinking to decide how I wanted to use the sketch.  I tend to forget that you don't necessarily have to punch or die-cut the shapes that are part of the sketch.  You can actually just stamp them.  What a revelation! ☺

To a Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions) card base I added a layer of Cookie Monster (Taylored Expressions) cardstock .  Then, I stamped the sun from the retired Kinda Eclectic stamp set by Stampin' Up! onto Sugar Cube cardstock using Lemon Meringue ink (Taylored Expressions) and added it to the layer of Cookie Monster cardstock.

On a scrap of Sugar Cube, I stamped the sentiment from Sunshine Sayings (Stampin' Up!) using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I popped it up using Scotch Foam Tape.  The word sunshine was cut from a piece of Basic Black (Stampin' Up!) cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes Dies by Stampin' Up!  I attached it to the card using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  For the finishing touch, I added Cookie Monster Enamel Dots (Taylored Expressions).

  3. I love the sunshine! Great take on the sketch.

  4. Wonderful take on the sketch. I love the colors, so welcome in the winter. And your comment about forgetting that you can stamp not punch or die cut elements of the sketch made me laugh - because I do the same thing!

    1. Thanks, Jeanne! Sometimes it's just fun to stamp and not worry about punches and dies and all the layers.

  5. Such a pretty and vibrant card and a great use of the sketch!
