Bit O' Green Sketch


It will be a busy day at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  First up is this sketch by Renee Lynch for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!

Then at 1:30 PM EST, I will be back with another card for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!  Of course the theme this month is St. Patrick's Day/Irish/Green!  You can add your link to Claire's blog beginning at 1:30, and have until tomorrow at the same time to participate.  There are even some Freebie images to download for St. Patrick's Day in the store HERE that you can use today!

A bit o' green spilled over onto my card with Renee's sketch...

I stamped a background with a pattern from French Country and then dotted the centers with white opal Liquid Pearls.  Also added a little panel from Gingham & Co. with the same color ink.  The sentiment in green is from Say It Loud!  On St. Patrick's Day everyone should celebrate being Irish!  I get asked if I am Irish quite often as I have red hair, but sadly I just have to pretend today like lots of other people :)

I got a medallion die, I got one, I got one!  This one is called the Woodrow Rosette die and it's from Memory Box.  I purchased mine from Ellen Hutson.  I will admit to having a little trouble with it at first, as I was overlapping the edges too much when I adhered them.  This caused the medallion to rip when I pushed it down.  It's also easier to fold lighter weight patterned paper than cardstock.  (I used green gingham Kitschy Kitchen paper from Melissa Frances for mine.) Once I got that straightened out, it was smooth sailing and full steam ahead!  I made quite a few this weekend.  The die actually comes with a separate piece for the center, but I opted for a button cut with PTI's Buttoned Up #2 die instead.

Your turn to play along!  If you are quick, you can get something done with this sketch AND enter it into the Blog Party link group today!  Upload your creation with this week's sketch HERE by next Friday, March 23rd.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS set of choice!  See you back here at 1:30 for the Blog Party!

Good to hear a little practice, I've got a sizzix rosette die and I haven't mastered it at all... but did you see the Embellish challenge is all about rosettes...

Beautifully stamped background and I love the soft colors! Great job with the rosette, so pretty in gingham, and the cutout button with the real button looks wonderful. I really like the rustic twice too. Very sweet card!
