Sketch Time!

Sorry this is late. Instead of stamping yesterday, I took a nap!

Amber was more than willing to cozy up with me and take a nice 2 hour nap! Gotta LOVE that. Its not often, and after this week, I was just wiped out. It was very needed.

When I posted 2 weeks ago about what stamp companies people wanted to see me use in my Saturday Sketch,  MOST of you had never heard of Green Grass Stamps! WOW!

I have had samples on here over the last year, but think they have just gone un-noticed. So I decided today to introduce you-if you haven’t been before-to Green Grass Stamps——HERE

If you want to check out daily samples-the Owner Tammy, has a blog, and she as well as the other Green Grass Stamps designers, have daily samples for you to get plenty of ideas.

You will see many of my samples there as well. Just scroll away! I have one there for yesterday, as a matter of fact.

So check it out——>HERE.

OK so the Sketch! Click for a larger view


Here is my Thank You bloom


I love this combo of colors. Its Kraft, pomegranate, pale plum, and Spring Moss (by PTI)

I have NO idea who makes this paper, and Im so bummed because I NEED more! Im in love with it.

I used the Thank You set for the flower center on this card. Stamped with Pomegranate, onto the plum, then punched with the ? 1 inch circle.

I then punched 2 pieces of plum card-stock with SU! Scallop. Used scissors to snip the scallops, for flower petals. Then sponged them with ink. The first one in plum, the second with pomegranate ink. Layered them together-then added the “thank you” center.

The “leaves” for my flower are the PTISpring Moss twill (which is WAY better than Twill you find else-where. Its thinner, and luxurious. Its my favorite of the ribbons-as it has a pretty look with a satin like texture-gorgeous!.

I believe I first saw this flower, created from the SU! Scallop punch idea on MJ’s blog. Sorry I don’t have time to hunt it down, since it was months ago. But, you can check her out. She has TONS of amazing ways to use that punch. You can just get lost there for a few hours.

So there is your sketch!!

I hope you have time to give it a try. Its never too late 😀

Just send us all a link in the comment’s section, so we can all see your take on it.

If you check out Green Grass I’d love to hear what set caught your eye, and what set YOU think is MY favorite!

Well Im off! Amber wants to take a trip with mommy to the stamp store. Can’t say NO to that, now can I?

Till tomorrow
