Stuck?! Sketches: June 1st Sketch, The Cut Shoppe co-challenge and Reveal

Hello, everyone! It's the month of June! It's the month of June! June is always a tad exciting for me as it's my birthday month and I tend to celebrate it the whole month through with some awesome scrappy friends who celebrate their own birthdays in June, too! Lots of things going on for sure, but there's always time to reveal a great Laura Whitaker sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches. Here's the new sketch:

This time around, Laura made some arrangements with the awesome Ashley Horton, the owner of The Cut Shoppe, and the Stuck?! Sketches design team was able to pick and choose some digital die-cuts of Ashley's to work with for this sketch. Here's what I came up with:

I had been waiting to try some tone on tone die-cutting for some time now. I worked with Ashley's X file die-cut and Basic Grey's RSVP collection - patterned papers, flags, wood die-cuts, stickers, and alphas. I also used a Jen Hadfield by Pebbles title sticker, a Studio Calico script transparency, a Christy Tomlinson rubon by Pink Paislee (which I actually cut in three pieces to spread it more evenly through the design), splashes of Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze and hand-stitching using a Stampin' Up stitching template and some DMC floss. Oh! And I just noticed a wee, little resin flower on that flower... a gift I received at a crop - manufacturer unknown. Photo by Philippe Dumas.

Wanna see what the other Stuck?! Sketches design team members came up with this time around? Hop on right over here and be prepared for some scrapsensational inspiration. And if you design your own layout based on today's challenge, please link it up to today's reveal over at Stuck?! Sketches. You'll get a chance to win some scrappy loot from Scrapmatts and Scrapbook Circle.

Happy scrapping!
