Hi friends! Happy Saturday! And happy long weekend!
Today I am sharing the sketch that I used yesterday. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite sketches from time to time. The new sketches will always be on a Saturday, but not every Saturday.
I usually don’t share a card that doesn’t have current product but I wanted to show you how you can take a card & make a similar one with whatever you have on hand. But you won’t be able to buy all the supplies for this one.
My card uses a 14 year old stamp and the rubber is in great shape and it stamps incredibly well. Gotta’ love how our SU! products hold up over time. The stamp is from a set called Thanksgiving Blessing. I think the image is ageless. The other stamps in the set are too, but the font is a bit old-school. Anyway, this stamp is 3.25 X 3′ even a larger size works such as 3.5 x 4 inches. I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss on Very Vanilla with lots of “white space” & it’s mounted on slightly larger piece of Blackberry Bliss. I set it aside so as to prepare the rest of the card.
My card base is also Blackberry Bliss. I embossed a 4 x 5.25 piece of Mango Melody with the Stripes & Splatter embossing folders (#157180-Currently available). Then I added a 1.5 x 5.25 piece of DSP. This is retired “Plaid Tidings” from 2020. I added my main panel using dimensionals.
Around at the top, I wrapped & made a bow in the retired Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon from 2021. Three orange/yellow Holiday Rhinestones from last year were added in the corner.
This sketch is so versatile, the image, the base and the side panel can all be size adjusted. I change up the papers & embellishments & sometimes it seems like you have a totally different card even though you are using the same sketch. Bounce back to yesterday to see the same sketch in action.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Sketch & Step-back Saturday. Card.
Happy Weekend & Happy Stamping! Marilyn (aka MJ)
