Happy Tuesday! The sun is shining on the beautiful snow that fell last night making it sparkle. I can never seem to get a good picture of the sparkling snow, kind of how the sparkle of Wink of Stella eludes me!
Today’s project features another sketch from Splitcoast Stampers.
Sketches are a great thing when you don’t have the time to think up a design on your own, or you are just starting out making cards. It takes away a lot of the pressure one can feel when designing a card from scratch. I used to create Scrapbook page layout sketches back in the day, but now you can just do a search on Pinterest or on Google and find more than you may ever need! Why reinvent the wheel when it comes to making cards?
Mine comes pretty close to the sketch today. After cleaning up snow this morning with my kids, I am beat and my muscles were retaliating BIG time, so I decided a sketch was in order. My brain could not hear itself think over the loud muscular protests happening near by.
I used two sheets of the Dandy Garden DSP for the background. What is awesome about DSP packs is that you do not have to color match! The coordinating colors are listed right on the package. Here are my measurements: Mossy Meadow card base (8-1/2″x5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″), card front layer (4″x5-1/4″), Bumblebee mat (2-1/2″x4-1/4″), dandelion layer (2-1/4″x4″).
I used Mossy Meadow for the sentiment on Basic White, then used the Double Oval Punch for both layers (Mossy Meadow border and the Basic White sentiment). Then I stamped the dragonfly in Bumblebee and cut it out using the Dragonflies Punch.
I glued them all on the card front using Foam Adhesive Strips for dimension. Don’t forget to add some clear gems! On this card they look like little drops of dew.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to subscribe to Let It Snow Stamping so you never miss another blog post. Every week I pick a stamp set and make one project (possibly two) every weekday. As an added bonus I also make videos for new techniques. The techniques can also be found under the Technique Corner tab.
