Sunday Stamps Challenge

I think challenges are a great way to stretch your creativity, and so I am endeavoring to play along with 2 challenges each week.  This week, I chose to play along with The Sunday Stamps challenge.  The sketch is a great layout which allowed me to showcase our beautiful DSP and the stunning Hibiscus flower from “Humming Along” the soon to be released stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  (Yes, my last blog post featured this flower as well and you can see that here).  Here is the sketch that inspired today’s project:

Sunday Stamps Challenge 192And here is my take on it:

The gorgeous gingham DSP is a new paper called Gingham Gala and it will be available in Jan 2019 in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog, along with the “Humming Along” stamp set.  I colored in the Hibiscus with our Stampin’ Blends markers in Daffodil Delight.     I love how the darling gingham just pops against a the tiniest bit of Basic  Black.  And because no envelope should be left naked…

The gingham paper has a larger check on one side, and a smaller check on the other.  I used the larger check to dress up the envelope flap so it coordinates perfectly but isn’t an exact match.

I hope you like my project today.  I encourage you to play with the Stampin’ Blends markers.  It is so easy to create a perfectly shaded and hi-lighted image with our Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  Here’s an up-close of the flower colored with the Stampin’ Blends so you can see the shaded and hi-lighted areas.
