Sweet Morning Cup

Well it doesnt take long for another Saturday to rock around does it? Seems like only yesterday ……

As it is Saturday (again) its time for another Utah Divas Sketch Challenge and here is this week’s sketch …

Utah Divas Sketch #125

I’ve been looking at this sketch and been wondering all week what on earth to do with it!  I think I looked at using 3 or 4 different sets before I decided on Morning Cup Stamp Set.

I decided this week that I’d rotate the sketch – only because I havent rotated it for a few weeks and have to keep Carol on her toes!

Here is my card …

Sweet Cuppa

I had decided to use the Sweet and Sour Specialty Designer Series Paper as I wanted something bright and funky! However when I put the DSP piece on the centre panel the embossed flourish didnt pop as much as I’d like so I thought I’d do an ’emboss resist’ on the DSP and wow it sure does pop – I only went over the embossed edges so it still has the pumpkin pie background there.  I just stamped my images onto Stampin’ Up! Watercolour paper and coloured them in using the Watercolor Wonder Crayons and the colours from the Sweet and Sour Specialty DSP being Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie. I love my crayons!!

Now you may remember a few weeks back I unmounted my Take a Sip Stampin Round Wheel – well for the background I just lined these stamps on the block and inked them up and stamped in Rose Red onto the Rose Red card base.

Now if you’d like to learn how to colour using the different tools we have then why not contact me and book in for my Watercolour Technique Class which will be held here at my home on Friday 4th March.  You will learn how to colour using the different mediums and see the difference on different cardstocks so be sure to contact me and reserve your spot today as seats are limited and they are sure to fill fast.

Now its time to skip over to Ruthie B’s blog and check out what she’s made for this week’s sketch.

Here is the list of all the Utah Divas Sketch Challenge Design Team just in case someone is late with their post or one of the links isnt working …


I do hope you liked today’s card

    Brilliant minds must think alike! I rotated the sketch too. And as I am sitting here working on my first cup of coffee, I really relate to your choice of stamp sets! I really love today’s card, Leonie!
