Thanks for joining me today for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  This week we have a fun sketch for you, I am using the new Lots of Lavender (Saleabration Stamp Set) and the Fruit Basket Stamp Set for the sentiment that I picked.  Can you believe that Saleabration has started!  It seems like a dream, but it’s true!  Today, is the start of Saleabration so I thought it would be very fitting to use the beautiful Lots of Lavender stamp set for today’s card.  Here’s a look at my card for today!

When I stamped the outline stamp in basic black archival ink make sure you let it dry before you move on with the color stamping.    I inked up the color image first in Sweet Sugarplum and then added a little Berry Burst ink to the areas I wanted to be in shadow.  This is best done with stampin’ spots, it makes it easier to ink up the smaller areas.  I did the same thing with the leaves, but used Lemon Lime twist and Old Olive.

Once I had this part of the stamping done I took the two little dots from the stamp set and stamped it in the background in Sweet Sugarplum.  I wanted to add a little interest to the background, these small stamps did just the trick.  I then took the Duet Banner Punch and punched once in Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and one in Whisper White Cardstock.  I took Old Olive classic ink and stamped the you are the sweetest sentiment from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog on the whisper white banner.  Once done I layered the whisper white banner and the Lemon Lime twist banner together in Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some of the metallic black thread to the card to add a little texture.

Occasions CatalogTo finish off my card I layered the card front on a Lemon Lime Twist mat cut at 5 1/4 x 4.  And, layered everything on a cardbase of Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  To tie everything together I stamped the lavender on the flap of the envelope and then took the rose image and stamped it on the front of the envelope on both sides of where the address would go.  I stamped the rose on both side of the address area.  I think it turned out really really cute.  I am extremely happy with the outcome.
