Happy Sunday, Stampers! By now you know that Sunday is the day for a new challenge from The Paper Players, but alas, my time with them as a guest designer is almost at an end. I'll miss being part of the design team, thought I'll still be playing along with their challenges. This week the uber-talented Nance Leedy has a sketch for us to play along with. I think I love sketch challenges the best. Most of the design work is already done for you!
I thought this layout was the perfect opportunity for me to ink up my new Flower Shop Stamp Set for the first time. This stamp set coordinates with the Pansy Punch, which is also new. Making cards with coordinating stamps and punches is such a breeze! This card came together in a flash.
The flowers were stamped with Bermuda Bay and Strawberry Slush Ink Pads. The designer series paper is Gingham Garden, one that I have been reaching for over and over again lately. The leaves were made using a 1 1/4" Circle Punch and then embossing lightly with a Stylus, a trick my stampin' buddy Justin showed me the other day.
