Sunday Sketch Grandparents Card using the Treasures of Life Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!®


This card is a very special card I stamped for or dearest friends, who have been blessed with a new grandbaby and also twin adopted grandbabies.  They went from one grandchild to 4 in just a few months and are so excited. 

I knew the moment I saw the Treasures of Live stamp set I would have to have it.  It is featured in the New Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog that goes live on Tuesday, Jan 5 you won't want to miss it.  Stop by Tuesday for links to the digital online catalog.  

Each Sunday Alison Solven (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches.  Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up.  They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way. 


You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!

Card created with a card sketch - template  using the Treasures of Live stamp set and Well Suited Designer paper by Stampin' Up! color
I colored the images with Stampin' Blends and pulled the colors from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper.  The paper features Poppy Parade, the ribbon Terracotta Tile and my images Cajun Craze.  You can see while they are different they blend beautifully as they are the same tone, so you don't always have to use the exact same color.
