Stamplorations Sketch Challenge #4


Hi Everybody,

today I am showing the first card I made for being officially on the Stamplorations design team! 





It is a SKETCH challenge, the sketch you can see below. 

I took those cute little stamps from the set PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Squares and stamped it first in pink and then added the hearts in a deeper shade of pink. It looked kind of flimsy, so I first tried embossing it with UTE, but was not happy with the result. Then I thought about using those clear sticker candies I have gotten a few years back basically for free, but never used them... I had some that were too large, but they can be cut easily with scissors. I used my corner chomper to round the corners. It really looks like candy....The card base I embossed using my favorite Papertrey Linen embossing plate. I love the sublte texture it achieves.  The sentiment is Stamplorations  VIGNETTE: Trendy Feathers.
  I wrapped red metallic thread around the card base, elevated it with foam tape, added the "candy" and lastly put some little hearts leftover from THIS card on the end of the threads. 


                                                

You have until January 31st to link up your card - I hope to see you there :)
The winner will be announced February 2nd.

I am also linking this card with Oozak - Anything goes - Love

Ein tolles Ding ist dir da wieder eingefallen!! Diese "Zuckerl'n" sind einfach verlockend....
ein kleines aber sehr schönes Detail sind auch die zwei Herzchen die ganz lässig am Faden pendeln!
