Clean & Simple Stamping Sketch 163

Here is the second card that I made today using Sketch 163 from Clean & Simple Stamping.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Stampin' Up  Sincere Salutations & Stitched Stockings
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Very Vanilla
Punch: Stampin' Up Stocking Builder Punch
Ink:  Stampin' Up Craft Stampin' Spots - Garden Green, Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red & Chocolate Chip.
Accessories:  Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder,  Linen Thread, Basic Rhinestone,  Antique Brass Brads.

I changed it a bit by moving the sentiment over to the other side since the stocking punch is rather large and they take up a lot of room on the front.  I think I am going to do another card (or two) with this sketch and use a smaller punch or stamps and follow the sketch as it is shown above. I have a couple of ideas that will work nicely with this sketch.

Clean & Simple Stamping Sketch 162

Since it was raining all day, I thought I would spend the afternoon in my craft room.  I decided to follow a couple of the recent sketches over at Clean & Simple Stamping.

Here is the sketch for 162:

World Cardmaking Day

Today is World Cardmaking Day!  Here is what I was working on today:

I followed sketch #160 at Clean & Simple Stamping.

I used one of the few non-Stampin' Up stamps set that I have and coloured it in with pastels.
The main card colour is Early Espresso, with Pretty in Pink for the accents & images are stamped on Whisper White.
Ink is Early Espresso and Positively Pink (retired).
I used the Scallop Trim Border punch along the bottom and used the Big Shot to emboss the strip at the top.
