StampingJulie Sketch Inspired: Get Well & Happy Birthday

patterned occasions bandaid stamp card

When you’re not feeling well bright and cheery is the answer.  I combined the Sale-a-bration Patterned Occasions  stamp set with the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper to create this upbeat get well card.

I love to use the colors in a pack of designer series paper to inspire my creating, but you can also experiment with colors outside the paper pack’s color palette.  Here I combined the striped Tangerine Tango paper with Melon Mambo cardstock for a fresh new color combo.

My sketch inspiration is from Friday’s CAS Sketch Challenge You can see more and play along here.  I kept this card super simple by following the sketch and adding simple interest with bright colors, a layered banner flag and a popped-up heart.  The heart was stamped from the Hearts-a-Flutter stamp set and punched with the Small Heart punch .

This card is also made with paper from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street pack and the Patterned Occasions stamp set.  Again I chose a coordinating color outside of the colors used in the pack.  In this case, I used the Pool Party patterned paper with a softer pink, Primrose Petals.

The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Die from page 191 in the catalog.  When the catalog was printed the numbers got reversed and the largest die was listed as 1-3/8″ in diameter which is much smaller than what I wanted.  When I found out the correct dimensions were 3-1/8″ for the largest doily I ordered the die immediately!  As you can see here the mid-size doily layers perfectly with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.

Again, I used Friday’s sketch for inspiration, changed the orientation to landscape, tied the Primrose Petals stitched ribbon across the card and added a bitty flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Rhinestone.
