DOstamperSTARS Challenge #181: Swirly Bird plus Love and Affection = Sneak Peek x2

 Time for another Thursday Challenge and this week is a Sketch Challenge. I couldn't resist playing with the new catalog items that I was able to pre-order as a demonstrator. Just one of the many great perks of being a demonstrator. If you would like to learn more about the perks, I would love to share what I know with you. Simply drop me a line and we can chat.

So, this is the sketch for this week. Don't you just love it? I do!


And Wa-Lah! Here is my interpretation of the sketch. 

DSC#181, Thursday Sketch Pad Challenge, card created by Dawn Thomas, Cracked Pot Stamper, #CrackedPotStamper, #stampinup

I love these 2 new sets: Love & Affection and Swirly Birds. Although each time I say Swirly Bird I am magically transported back to middle school when the word "swirly" meant something much different. Nobody wanted that kind of "swirly"!


What do I use to create this beauty? aka Supply List

Stamp Set: Love & Affection--available June 1, 2016

Paper: Crumb Cake cardstock (CS), Night of Navy CS, Whisper White CS and Flirty Flamingo CS (new In-Color coming 6/1/16) and the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Specialty Paper (definitely a "Must-Have"-it is gorgeous)

Ink: Versamark Ink

Embellishments: Crushed Cucumber Thick Baker's Twine and Copper Embossing Powder-both available June 1st!

Tools: Heat tool, Embossing Buddy, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets


It's All in the Details

  • Add a few small flowers to the background in a random pattern (or would that be considered a non-pattern since it is random? Hmm...something to ponder). This will help add some interest while accentuating the flowers in the Designer Series Paper swirls
