CCMC 263!

Wow, the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary really threw me for a loop this week. I try to encourage my customers and downline to participate in challenges as this is what makes you think, practice, learn and get your creative juices flowing. How did I manage this sketch challenge this week:

I grabbed a stamp set off of my shelf and challenged myself to use it and this is what I came up with:

I thought I would stick with a stamp set that had small images and I made all the baby animals peek from the sides of the cardstock layers. What a cute set to play with!

And I kept the sentiment on the same color cardstock as the embossed layer for color-on-color:

All of my stamped layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals for height. Here are all of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used in my project:
  • Stamp Sets: Zoo Babies
  • Inks: Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay, Pistachio Pudding, Early Espresso, Strawberry Slush
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, Silver 1/8" Ribbon
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, Corner Rounder Punch, Word Window Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Make sure you stop by Create with Connie & Mary for some great inspiration from our design team!
