Kind and Caring Sketch

It's time for another sketch from splitcoaststampers! Sketch challenge 234 is an easy, straight-forward one that will work nicely for many types of cards. However, the struggle today was with photoshop! Not sure where my background went? At least the card is still there!

This card is very economical as the base is one layer only. The added boxes are a good way to use up leftover pieces of cardstock and designer series paper.

  • To keep the base from looking to plain, I paper-pierced the empty corners. Soft suede is the color.

  • The cute trees are from Stampin' Up!s new designer series paper Tall Tales and they are mounted on Dusty Durango one of the new In Colors.

  • Kind and Caring Thoughts** is the "must-have" new stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in dusty durango. To keep it clean, I placed a scrap piece of cardstock over the words after stamping and then stamped the ginkgo branch over the top in mellow moss. For the finishing touches I stamped another leaf in each lower corner, and striped the square with barely banana at about 1/8" intervals (hard to see in photo). This square is mounted on so saffron.

**You can earn Kind and Caring Thoughts absolutely free! This wonderful set is available only as a hostess set starting July 1. Email me if you would like to host a workshop and get this set.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Tasha
