My Favorite Things ~ Blessings

This week StampNation is playing along with the My Favorite Things sketch challenge.  You know how much I LOVE sketches!  I loved this one so much I made 2!  One for my blog and one exclusively for StampNation.

The background is stamped with white pigment ink onto craft cardstock.  I made a mask using outer frame from the die cut so that only the center of my card would be stamped.

Check out this sketch!  Doesn't it get your creative juices flowing?!!!  The best part is you can participate in this challenge at both the MFT site CLICKY and StampNation CLICKY.  I created a mask with my new Stitched Square Frames die and then inked my Crumb Cake cardstock with white pigment ink.  Next I added my frame using dimensionals so it would pop up from the card a bit.  For the fall berries I first inked it with a Kaleidacolor pad, then added just a touch of Golden Glitz Delicata ink to the edges.  The combination of white, craft and purple colors with a touch of gold reminds me of crisp Fall days filled with sunshine and fresh air.

The second card I made exclusively for StampNation was almost a one layer card, but the sentiment got lost on the background.  To solve this I stamped it again on white cardstock, punched that out and popped it up with dimensionals.  The I added seam binding and sequins.  Below is a sneak peek.  You can see the full card and DT samples in the challenge forum at StampNation.  

Some of my fellow Design Team members are featuring a second card today on their blogs too.  Check them out and give them some love!
