I adore the font of this stamp. When I first saw the sketch for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge I was not excited to give it a try. I just did not like it. But I wanted to take on the challenge.
While I love this stamp set I had not yet used it so I decided to make it my focal point.
The color palette was determined when I selected the Wildflower DSP from Sale-A-Bration. Yummy Hello Honey, Black and White are very striking together.
I often struggle when there is a diagonal cut in a sketch. For this card I cut the DSP 4″ x 5 1/4″ and then put the DSP in my Stampin’ Trimmer on the diagonal to create the cut. Then I mounted the top piece on a piece of Whisper White with the same dimensions adding the bottom a bit more than a 1/4″ away from the top piece. A bit of trimming and I had created the “gap” I was looking for to meet the sketch.
The Bordering Blooms Photopolymer stamp set is another fav of mine. I thought it coordinated nicely with the DSP so I stamped the sunflower border stamp, adhered it to the base and then trimmed off the pieces that over hung the sides.
The inside sentiment is from a big box store. Aren’t the sunflowers adorable in the inside as well?
While at first I did not like the sketch, I am very happy with the result. I do hope you will play along with the Pals Paper Arts this week. You won’t want to miss what the sketch design team members have created.
