Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge - #153

Once again I am joining the sketch fun over at the Atlantic Hearts Challenge Blog...

This week the card shape is square and I really enjoyed playing with this format. It has been quite awhile since I have created a card in a shape other than rectangle. I based my card around the stamp sets and cluster design I shared in my last blog post (you can find it by clicking -  here). I love how you can use the same stamp sets time and time again and by changing the colour palette come up with lots of different variations.

I basically followed the sketch design cutting 1/4" strips of paper to create the striped look depicted in the sketch. The pink and mint coloured papers were taken from the paper/pages in the
My Crush Everyday Life Pages. I especially love using these as a paper source and use them regularly to compliment my other paper packs. The sentiment comes from the Friend in Me stamp set and the background splatter was created with the Ink Blot stamp set  - using the 2nd generation stamping technique in  Black and Cotton Candy Ink. The flower and leave images...found in the Springtime Wishes and  Friend in Me stamp sets... were stamped in black ink on a combination of papers from the My Crush Everyday Life Pages, Regatta and Penelope Paper Packs. Although, some of the flowers and leaves were cut from the printed designs found on the My Crush Everyday Life Pages. They were then fussy cut and arranged in a cluster with some Foam Tape behind the larger flower to add some dimension. A paper bow from the Gold Fundamentals Assortment added just the right finishing touch.

Now, is the perfect time to add these 3 stamp sets to your collection. During the month of March...(and yes, we only have a few days left!) - when you purchase two stamp sets you get a third set for free - that is a saving of $21 on the 3 stamp sets used in this card design and exceptional value for money especially knowing you can use them over and over again.
