Stampin' Up! Sunny Splash


This cute card was inspired by Sketch Challenge 567 from Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  When I saw it I knew it was perfect for the Sunny Splash stamp set!  

Card Base ~ Basic White Thick Cardstock ~ 11" x 4-1/4", score at 5-1/2"
Layer 1 ~ Gorgeous Grape Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"

Special tools are not required for lining up the swimsuits.  It is handy to have Grid Paper (but then, it's ALWAYS handy to have Grid Paper).  Also, grab a pencil and large sticky note.  Position your white cardstock on the Grid Paper and use the guidelines to find the center of the cardstock.  Mark that spot on the Grid Paper above your cardstock with the pencil.  

Place the sticky note over the cardstock, leaving enough room above it to stamp the swimsuits.  Again, use the guidelines on the Grid Paper, this time to make sure your cardstock and sticky note are straight.  

Start stamping with the center swimsuit.  Remember that pencil mark you made?  Use that and the sticky note to position the stamp.  Then, repeat with the left and right swimsuits.  Finish up by lowering the sticky note and stamping the bottom three swimsuits, in the same order.  (Don't forget to clean the stamp and stamp that last swimsuit in a different color)

I encourage you to also use your Grid Paper to practice stamping.  You know I did!  I wanted to make sure I had the positioning of my sticky note and swimsuits correct before stamping on my precious cardstock.  

I kept the inside simple, just stamping another swimsuit in the lower left corner. 

Thank you, Try Stampin' On Tuesday, for inspiring me with your sketch challenge!
