Stampin' Celebration Flowering Retirement

Welcome back to the Stampin' Celebration Sketch challenge for March (SC125)!  

A friend at work is retiring so I had to make her a card.  Unfortunately I will be out of the office when they have her party so I wanted to be sure I created it in advance to give to her.  I found a color combination I wanted to use and decided to go with a floral theme.  The new Botanical Builder Framelit Dies from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions catalog were perfect for this card!  Once I picked the colors, it was as simple as cutting and gluing.

The greeting is from the Wild About Flowers photopolymer stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.  I added some candy dots on the smaller flowers and white enamel dots on the bigger flower for added dimension.

I hope you have time to play along with our challenge!  I can't wait to see the you make this sketch your own!

Colors: Pacific Point, Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, Whisper White, Mossy Meadow.

Stampin' Celebration Handsome Fellow

Welcome to the March Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.
Apparently the cute frog inspired a lot of us on the design team!  I decided to pull out the Playful Pals photopolymer stamp set from Stampin' Up! (2016 Occasions catalog) and make my first creature with the set.  I ended up fussy cutting the body parts out instead of using the die cuts.  It was therapeutic!

I thought he was perfect for the "Hello, Handsome" greeting from the Happy Happenings stamp set (Stampin' Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog) .  The color scheme I used was Wild Wasabi, Lost Lagoon and Night of Navy.  I added a few Night of Navy candy dots and some ink splatter from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
