Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 180-Shake It Up

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used a few new goodies from Clear and Simple Stamps on this drink-themed square card.

Since the By the Glass series of stamps first was released, I’ve been asking for dies, so I was thrilled to see the dies to match all of the glass images as part of this month’s release. For this card, I used the martini glass die and coordinating stamps as my focal image. It was easy to fill in the die cut glass with the glass outline and then add the solid images for the drink and olive. I used foam tape to adhere the image to a white panel, then added the “shake it up” sentiment from the new Taglines: By the Glass stamp set to the panel on a narrow Favor Flags die cut.

I used a piece of fun striped paper to make the background for the card. The edges are machine stitched for a finished look. The stripes are broken up with a strip of solid lime green cardstock, edged with an open scallop border made with the Eyelet Border die. I folded a matching lime green die cut circle around the upper left edge of the panel. It looked a little plain to me, so I dressed it up with a pair of shiny silver brads.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
