Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge December

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

The lovely Amanda Charlesworth designed our sketch this month and here it is:

 My first thought when I saw the sketch was Oh My God what on earth am I doing to make. Then I had an idea, which didn't work so I tried something else, which also didn't work. At that point I was getting to close to giving in. Not one to be defeated I then started to look through my box of die cuts and punched shapes to see if anything would work and I came up with this design. 

Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Swirly Scribbles Thinlet Dies

I started off with a card base of Blushing Bride and cut a small piece of Melon Mambo with the wavy lines die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlet dies to cut the wave. When I put it on the card I thought it looked a little plain so I ran it through the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (that's a bit of a mouthful). Then I added some of my favourite flowers and leaves from the Botanical Builder framelits. The happy birthday sentiment came from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm actually really pleased with the end result, I do hope you like it too.

  1. Wow a lot of us had the same idea of using the Botanical Builder framelits - it was nice to get away from Christmas stuff for a while

    1. Great minds Fiona! Even though a lot of people did use the Botanical Builder dies they are all so different. Thanks xx
