Sketch Week at Addicted to Stamps and More!

We have an absolute cracker of a sketch this week for you this week - take a look


As soon as I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do - and for once it worked!! Here is my card


This is where Double Sided Paper comes into it's own - I cut a few diagonal lines on my paper and folded it back. 1 - it reveals the gorgeous underside of the paper and 2 - leaves an area perfect for framing an image. The image in this instance is this year's retired Sale-a-bration set Fresh Vintage. The stamp has been coloured with Stampin' Write markers, really quick and really easy. Markers are perfect for adding coloured detail to your stamps and come in all the current Stampin' Up colours.


All you have to do now is head on over to Addicted to Stamps and More, take a look at all the other gorgeous dt cards and then have a go yourself - I can't wait to see what you do - bye for now - Jacqueline xx

  8. I love your card! It is so clean and simple but beautiful! Your stamped image is colored so nicely. That one can be kind of tough! I loved it and the DSP and miss the both dearly. :(
