Sprinkles of Life - CPC48 Card Sketch


I made this card using this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch #48 over at Craft Project Central. If you play along, you could win a free month Craft Project Central subscription! A winner will be drawn for every 10 cards submitted. When a CPC designer, like me, submits a card, the card will be counted towards the "every 10 cards", but our names won't be in the drawing. I hope you'll play along!

This is the second card I've made with the wonderful set, Sprinkles of Life. CLICK HERE to see the first one I made. It's this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set. For every set sold, $3 will be donated to your local Ronald McDonald House. I'm really having a lot of fun with this stamp set and it's coordinating punch, Tree Builder Punch! I'm definitely going to be using them a lot!

Tips:
  1. I attached the Crushed Curry DSP piece (from Cherry on Top DSP) to a strip of Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Trim, and then attached it to the left side of the Tip Top Taupe card base. I then attached the Bermuda Bay DSP piece.
  2. I stamped the flower bunch with a Memento Pad, and colored the flowers and leaves in with Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, and Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write Markers. Once it was colored, I punched it out with the Tree Builder Punch.
  3. I stamped the basket onto a piece of Tip Top Taupe cardstock with Tip Top Taupe ink. I then cut it out freehand. I then attached the bottom of the flower bunch piece to the top of the basket. Once the greeting piece was attached to the card, I attached the flower basket to the left side of it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. I made the banners by punching the right ends of the strips with the Banner Triple Punch. I then stamped the stems across the bottom of all three with Cucumber Crush ink. I stamped the small flower stamp onto the top of every other stem (see picture for colors). I then counted the number of stems that didn't have flowers, and stamped the same number of flowers onto the same color cardstock as the flowers already stamped. I also using the same ink. I punched them out with the Tree Builder Punch, and then attached them to the empty stems with Mini Glue Dots.
  5. I attached the smallest rhinestones from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each punched out flower.
  6. The punched out flowers on the left end of the three banners were made by punching out scallop circles with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch. I cut between each scallop to make the flower petals, making sure to keep the center intact. I then punched out three circles from Crushed Curry cardstock using the 1/2" Circle Punch. I then attached these circles to the center of the flowers. I attached the flowers to the card with Mini Glue Dots. Once attached, I curled the petals up a bit.
  7. I punched out a butterfly from a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I then stamped the flower bunch stamp onto it with Crushed Curry ink. I then attached the butterfly to the top, right corner of the greeting layer with a Mini Glue Dot. I then attached a strip of 3 rhinestones to the center of the butterfly.
