Sending Smiles for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying the weekend. Mine is extra-fabulous because it is the start of my March Break. A whole week to catch up on projects around the house and, of course, stamp! Wahoooo!

Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

Here is my take on it:

I actually designed this card weeks ago. I had my challenges mixed up and thought this one was up last month...oops! The nice thing is that it was done WELL in advance, which is a pretty rare occurence for me these days! I used some Carried Away Sale-a-bration DSP for the banner element, die-cutting it with the Banners Framelits. The background Whisper White panel is embossed using the Seaside TIEF.

I created an ombre look on the balloons by first inking the entire stamp with the lighter shade of ink (Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride) and then dabbing on the darker shade with a sponge dauber. I used Emerald Envy over the Mint Macaron and Rose Red over the Blushing Bride. I used the Up and Away Framelits to die-cut the balloons.
The sentiment and clouds are stamped in Smoky Slate ink on a Whisper White circle which I die-cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I layered the white circle on a Blushing Bride scalloped circle, which I cue using the Layering Circles Framelits.

I added some Blushing Bride Baker's twine (retired) and a little silver enamel heart for just a touch of shine.

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's projects and then give our sketch a go. We'd love to see your take on it, so be sure to share it with us at Sunday Stamps.

Have a blessed Sunday!
