Razzle Dazzle Sketch

(Don't forget to register for updates to this website on the right side bar.)

Here's the latest splitcoaststampers sketch. It came out on Wednesday and I'm being very slow about getting it done! This cards has been at different points of development on my desk for a couple of days!

It's been a busy week. I'm starting a school at my home for grades 6-12 this fall and I've been busy trying to get everything in order. Wednesday night I had an information meeting for parents at my house and Thursday I spent the day in training. Busy, busy, busy.

I've been homeschooling my kids for 14 years. My two oldest daughters are in college, but I still have my sons, ages 14 and 17 at home. We're inviting 4-6 more kids to come do school with us using the New American School curriculum. It's a achievement-oriented program that I've been using with my boys for the past year. And I love it!

So here is my rendition of this weeks sketch! Hope you like it.
Because I made this card is numerous short stamping sessions, it is a interesting design mix from SU! Razzle Dazzle set. I started with the center piece in which I stamped the background block on Whisper White cs with second generation Crushed Curry. HINT: 2nd generation means that I inked the stamp and stamped it once on scrap paper before stamping on my project.This is sometimes referred to as stamping off.

The flower was then stamped over the Crushed Curry in Melon Mambo. I added glitter to the Melon flowers using 2-way glue and dazzling diamonds glitter.

The base of the card is white layered with black. The black looked plain so I stamped the small flower with white craft ink. On top of the black I layered pieces from the Razzleberry Lemonade. Then I added Crushed Curry cs on black cs and wrapped the polka dot Melon Mambo ribbon around the front of the card. HINT: I used the crop-a-dile to punch a hole off the left side of the card to thread the ribbon through.

The main piece was then added to the front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment on Crushed Curry with black stazon and punched it out with the word window punch. I punched the Melon dp with the large oval punch and punched the black cs with the designer label punch. These were layered with the stylized silver hodgepodge label plate. The large silver brads in the top left corner are from the same hodgepodge set.

I hope you like it!
