Coloring Down the Lines - Special

Hello Stampers!

Well yesterday was very hectic.  I had so much to do and I managed to get it all done.  I did get everything I needed to do completed.  I was however vacuuming at 10:30 last night.  Good thing I only had one room to finish.

Today is the Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.  We have some more Spring colors for you this week

Stampin' Up color matches

Aren't these colors fabulous?  I thought they would be fun to work with.  I went looking for a sketch as I wanted to do one.  I found an interesting one at Match the Sketch Challenge.


I thought this would be fun to play with but I have to admit the sketch really challenged me.  Maybe it was the paper I chose or the colors but I did have a hard time with this one.  I started with the sentiment.  I stamped it and used the Lots of Labels thinlets to cut it out.  I cut a mounting layer out of the next largest thinlet.  I cut my designer series paper and mounted the 2 vertical strips.  I went to add the larger vertical  piece and my 2 strips were not over far enough.  I had to carefully remove them and move them over.  I then added my larger piece and could then add my sentiment.  Lots of issues with this one.  Here is my creation.

Are you ready to see some other great projects?  Hop on down the line to Amanda's blog - Our Crafty Playdate to see what she created using these colors.  Then keep hopping to see what the other ladies created.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I have a retirement group of ladies stamping with me today.  Then I will be keeping Reni while Jess has a conference call.  I am hoping to get into my craft room after that.  Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
