Blushing Always

Jen del Muro's got a rockin' Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) this week! Go to i{heart}2stamp to see the sketch, her sample, and guest designer Sarah Green's sample. If you play along and upload to Splitcoast, remember to use keyword: SFYTT, so we can see everyone's samples all in the same place. More eye candy awaits from the other SFYTT girls:


My sample uses the color combo from Tuesday's Splitcoast Color Challenge: Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava, and Basic Gray. What an awesome combo! I saw these two particular Cuttlebug folders matched up together like this somewhere on Splitcoast this week and was inspired, but I can't remember where. I'd love to give credit if someone can point me in the right direction again! [Note: I found it! It was this beauty by DawnL.]

The heart was done using Beate's thumping tutorial. All you do is ink up the stamp in your lighter color, then use a marker to whack all over the image in the darker color. Pretty cool.

This was also my first time using Stampin' Up's Build-A-Brad kit. How easy are these? Stamp your image, punch it out with a 1/2" circle, place an epoxy circle sticker from the kit on your image and stick on the brad. I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with these, and I love being able to customize my brad to my stamp set and color combo.
