MFT Color and Sketch Challenge

Hello from the frozen state of Iowa. Our high today is -8. Beauty heh? This just makes for a great day to stay in and stamp. :) For today's card I started with the My Favorite Things color challenge.
 Then I used the sketch to help pick my image to stamp. It is a very old Stampin Up stamp. Part of the entering challenges is to build up the different companies stamps. I was a demonstrator for SU for 10 years. I would like to branch out. I liked the idea of the sketch where you can use one small stamp and get big impact by repetition. I did rotate the sketch 180 degrees.
So I stamped the image three times in each color of ink, trimmed them out and sprayed them with Shimmer Spritz.  All the cardstock is 110 lbs white.
The presents are mounted with either one, two or no layers of foam tape to give dimension.

I will also enter it in the SSS Wednesday Anything Goes and the SSS Monday Party challenge.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

  1. Wow! What a clever idea for a card! I'm so impressed at how much visual power you created simply by repeating the same image in different colors. I also really liked the way you layered these and made some of them popping out further than the others. This is a great structure and color palette and I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
