Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, CR84FN10, and More!




Happy Sunday everyone!  It is time for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!  This week we have a wonderful sketch challenge.   Check out the link to find out how to play along with us!

I am super excited because I was chosen to a guest designer for this week's CR84FN Challenge!  This week Mona has chosen some gorgeous colors!   The colors for this week are lavender, aqua, yellow, and green (CR84FN10)! Gorgeous selection! Makes me think of spring!  For my card I am using Waltzingmouse Labels 10 stamp set and PTI sentiment set.   I layered on my Spellbinder's Beaded Ovals, petite oval scallops, petite ovals, and my Label 10.  All cut with my Grand Calibur which makes cutting multiple standard sized die cuts in one pass a dream!  My patter papers are a mixture of Memory Box and Webster's Pages.  I was actually able to find some aqua thread in my stash and used it to add a touch more aqua.  I stamped the WMS Label 10  frame in aqua mist and stamped the sentiment in Memento grape jelly.  I sponged inside the Spellbinder's stencils with a soft yellow ink.  I finished with some soft green butterflies and seam binding. 


I also played along with a few other blog challenges! Back in a few to link those!

  18. Beautiful Betty! I love these soft colors together! Makes me think spring will soon be here.. after this next big snow storm that is! Love the sentiment and how you worked the sketch! Do you dye your own seam binding? I am working on that and finding it hard to get this deep a tone! Any tips? :)

    Have a great week!!!

    Grace
