A New Sketch Challenge at Sunday Stamps!

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps...and it's one that I designed!

Here's the sketch:




And here is my take on it...

I used the new Balloon Adventures stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue. I love that it not only coordinates with the new Balloon Pop-up Thinlits, but it also works with the Balloon Bouquet punch from the Annual Catalogue. It makes stamping and punching out these balloons super quick and easy. I used a colour scheme of So Saffron (when was the last time I used THAT colour??) Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral...I think they work really well together. My neutral is Smokey Slate, which I used to stamp the strings for the balloons and the sentiment.

The background panel is embossed using the Softly Falling TIEF. I think my favourite thing about this card is the Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon...

It is so pretty and easy to tie even the tiniest of bows! It is part of the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment Kit and I sure hope we see more of it in future catalogues!

On the inside I stamped more balloons and another sentiment from the Balloon Adventures set. So festive and fun!

Speaking of fun, why don't you give this sketch challenge a try? It is super versatile. We'd love it if you'd share with us over at Sunday Stamps. In the meantime, have a super Sunday!

    1. I think I'm a bit addicted to the Stitched Shapes framelits...I can't seem to use a plain circle or oval anymore!
