Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. After not creating for a week, I needed a little boost. So, I turned to my favorite challenge blog — Global Design Project. As I was creating, I was thinking about other favorites — favorites from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. What do I love? The Sprig Punch because I love little twiggy things that I can tuck in (the punch makes it super easy!). The Buffalo Check background stamp — plain and simple, it’s awesome! And, I love stitched dies. They just add a little something more. There are several sets in the catalog with stitched elements. I combined these favorites into my Buffalo Check for GDP153 card.
Buffalo Check for GDP153
As I mentioned, I started today’s creativity with the GDP153 color challenge.
And, I decided I wanted to play with some of my Holiday Catalog pre-order goodies.
For this card, I used a Thick Very Vanilla base.
Then, I inked the Buffalo Check background stamp with Flirty Flamingo
and stamped on a Very Vanilla panel.
Next, I inked the Buffalo Check stamp in Daffodil Delight
and stamped on Daffodil Delight.
Then, I used the heart from the Sweetly Stitched Framelits to cut out my “petals”
Behind the flower, I have sprigs of Soft Suede (cut with the Sprig Punch)
and loops of Copper Metallic Thread.
To assemble the flower, I used my hot glue gun.
Using the Sweetly Stitched Framelits again, I made a piece of Soft Suede rickrack.
Once I had run the stitched die through the Big Shot, I used my Paper Snips to
cut out the rickrack.
And to finish, I added Gold Faceted Gems.
Thanks for stopping in today to check out my Buffalo Check for GDP153 card!
