TESC84 Places You’ll Go

September 25th, 2009

I’ve really been wanting to get back to some of my favorite styles of stamping – vintage, shabby, retro – so I decided to use Taylor’s sketch today (turned on its side) to try something a little vintage-y.  This card went in a little different direction from what I had originally pictured and I’m still not quite sure how I feel about it.


Mountain image from the TE charity set The Places You’ll Go was die cut with circle nesties and colored with Copics.  I omitted the sentiment when I stamped the image with the idea that I would use a different sentiment from the set elsewhere on the card, but as you see I ended up *wordless* – I just couldn’t make a sentiment work anywhere.  Card base is Creamy Caramel with the edges sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  Next is a Chocolate Chip layer followed by a layer of SU dp (from a Hostess pack).  The ivory cs is shimmery poison ivory and the horizontal panel was first stamped in chocolate chip with the Sanded BG stamp, then run through my Big Shot with an SU embossing folder and brayered with Creamy Caramel ink.  The finishing touches are chocolate chip satin ribbon, KaiserCraft rhinestones and that new big yummy Prima flower.

Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up:

  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro  
  • Lynn Mercurio
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Plus Jen Tapler is Our Friday Friend on the SASI Blog.
  • I hope you’ll play along with us – hop over to Taylor’s blog to get all the deets.
