MY TIME SKETCH WITH TART & TANGY

This card is for Lauren Meader's April 5, 2008 Sketch. Lauren's blog is My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence. I've been busy the last couple of days creating projects for my next stamp class, but had to sneak this challenge in after seeing Lauren's fantastic sketch, and Joanne Basile's tart & tangy card this morning. Joanne's card inspired me to use Tart & Tangy and Summer Picnic DP.

My card is pretty much self-explanatory, but just want to point out a couple of things on the "cherry medallion". There is a Real Red piece behind the Bashful Blue scallop. This Real Red piece is punched with the Scallop Punch using THIS technique by Mary Jo Albright. After adhering the medallion to the card, I realized that the scallop needed more definition. I probably would have preferred paper piercing the scallops, but instead used my Basic Black Marker to add dots to the scallops.
RECIPE
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Absolutely Fabulous
Paper: Summer Picnic DP, Old Olive, Read Red, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black Classic Ink Pad and Marker, Old Olive and Red Red Markers
Embellishments: Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: 1 3/8" and 1 1/2" Circle Punches, Scallop Circle Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals


Joanne has some news on her blog that I'm pretty excited about because I'll be working with two of my all-time favorites stampers and blogging friends; Joanne Basile ( ... just a little something ...) and Dawn Easton (Treasure Oiler Designz) . Click HERE to read the news!
