HLS July 2015 Sketch Challenge

Happy Little StampersI’m happy to be sharing some cards with you today as a new member of the HLS Sketch Design Team for the first time! Woohoo! 🙂


Here is July’s Sketch:

My card:


Here is the photo that I used as inspiration.

Growing Lupine

I used PTI’s Flower Favorites to make this card. I’m loving this stamp. Lupine remind me of my home State of Maine.


I stamped the flowers in SU’s Rose Red, Melon Mambo and Whisper White. To the tops of the lupine, I added some more white with a gel pen. I also did some sponging and added SU’s Soft Sky and Pool Party ink to the background.

I had so many ideas for this stamp that I made a total of 4 different card with it! Check out the others below.
