TSSC #70 - One of a Kind

It's already Monday again and the day for Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge! And number 70 already?! Wow, time is flying by! Here's the sketch for today, a simple but interesting one:

From this sketch I made a pretty simple and quick card. I chose the Washington Apple DSP because it has bright and spring-y colors AND because it has a stripe, which I wanted to use on one of the front panels. The Bashful Blue print is a perfect foil for the stripe.

For the three round images on the front I chose a flower stamp from the One of a Kind stamp set. It just fit perfectly under a large round Clear Button which I've had out on my desk to remind me to use. I haven't for quite a while and they are a product with lots of versatility! You can emboss on them or place stamped images, solid colors or punchout from DSP behind them! Today I stamped the flower on white cardstock in a color from the stripe, Pumpkin Pie. This was punched out with the 1" Round Punch and placed behind the button. A So Saffron brad from the Rich Regals Brads assortment was placed in the two thread holes and laid aside.

On a card base of So Saffron two pieces of different designs from the Washington Apple DSP were layered. Three strips of So Saffron grosgrain ribbon were added for the horizontal design and then the three prepared Clear Buttons were added using Mini Glue Dots for a secure hold.

The sentiment"Happy Birthday Wishes" from Fast and Fun Notes stamp set was stamped on So Saffron card stock and punched out with the Word Window Punch then attachedf to the bottom ribbon.

Stamps: One of a Kind, Fast and Fun Notes
Inks: Pumpkin Pie Classic
Paper: Washington Apple Designer Series Paper; So Saffron, Whisper White card stock
Accessories: Clear Round Buttons, Rich Regals Brad asst., 1" Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, So Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots

This was a fun card to make and to send. Try one yourself and see what you come up with! You can see Technostamper's blog here and also a list of those who are participating in the sketch this week!
