Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!!
Today, as usual, Jen has another FABULOUS Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) for us all!!! Yippee!!!
Most of the SFYTT Sisters today have used stamps from Skipping Stones Design on their creations!!! Skipping Stones Design has very generously sponsored today's SFYTT, and their stamps are SO fun!!
For my card, I used the TOTALLY adorable Tropical Birthday! This set is SO cute and the sentiment cracks me up!!
I started by stamping the hula girl from Tropical Birthday in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut her out with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe and Memento Tangelo.
The patterned paper is a mix of Thrift Shop and Fly A Kite, both from October Afternoon, and Once I had them laid out, I sewed each panel on my sewing machine. The sentiment, "May your coconuts never hang lower than your grass skirt", also from Tropical Birthday, was stamped onto the patterned paper and then cut out and embossed with Circle Nestabilities.
I also used Circle Nestabilities to create the circles under my vanilla brads, and I finished this off with some Hemp Twine under my focal panel and going around the main panel.
Check out what the AMAZING SFYTT sisters have done with this sketch right here!!
