Positively Papercraft Sketch #4 for March

Hi and welcome to my blog. I've finally made my fourth card using the sketches in the Positively Papercraft Facebook group album for March.

I had fun with this one even though it is not at all 'me' and took me a little out of my comfort zone. I decided to make a really detailed video explaining some of the jargon I use as a card maker and Stampin' Up! demonstrator, remembering how alien so many words were to me when I started off and wondering why people gave their inks such crazy names.

I also explain at the end of the video how I go about making a card using a sketch as I know a lot of people are daunted by them, so that may help anyone who identifies with that.

I used Call Me Clover and Whisper White for this card, using Call Me Clover was a tough one for me as I'm not the biggest fan of the colour and I'm glad I did use it as I do love how it looks on the finished card.

I used some non Stampin' Up! rectangle dies and cut out a piece of Call Me Clover, which is the green cardstock and a smaller one to cut out the piece of DSP from the Painted Seasons paper free from Saleabration.

I used retired Stampin' Up! doilies and a current punch to get my pennant, I added a piece of DSP on top of the cardstock to bring it through from the background a bit more as I felt it was kind of lost.

My sprig of leaves was from a die in the May Flower framelits set and I cut the sentiment tag by hand after stamping with Call Me Clover ink using Part of My Story stamps.

The ribbon is a gorgeous little copper edged Very Vanilla shade from the Tea Room suite by Stampin' Up! and the little button was from my stash. I just added this colour as it picked up the darkest pink in the DSP.

You can see the sketch at the end of this post and you'll see that I stayed pretty true to the sketch.

Join in if you wish by heading to Positively Papercraft on Facebook and looking in the albums for the March sketch challenge and popping your entries in there.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, have a great week.
