Stamping with the Stars #DOswts368 Sketch Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup
Today's sketch was inspired by a card layout found on pg 6 of the Sale-a-Bration Brochure

Stampin' Up! publications are my favorite way to get inspired.  If I'm having trouble getting started stamping, I just have look at all of the creativity shared in any one of our catalogs and away I go.

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the focal point, start with a 3-1/2" square of paper (see cutting suggestion below).  I adhered the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper to the same size of Very Vanilla - to give it more stability.
  • Cut 3/4" strips from each end (total of two strips), then cut rest into 1" strips (total of 2 strips). 
  • Adhere strips to FREE Sale-a-Bration Be Dazzling Specialty Paper with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Start with the small "end" strips and fill in with the middle area with the larger strips.
  • I'm in need of several "thinking of you" cards and the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set is just right.
  • The new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backers Dots are the perfect finishing touch!
