Hula-dancing Sophie

This card really shows how Pam Bassett is my stamping idol and I want to make cards just like her!! I adore this card by Pam and wanted to make something similar, but with the hula-dancing Sophie image instead. Here’s my version: This is my third try at her famous ribbon blossom, and I think I’m getting a little better at them. I also ended up with similar colors as Pam’s card after I chose the striped paper from Paper Salon for my background. I mimicked Pam’s punch layering, but with a slight twist – I punched the label punch out of the patterned paper, and then put the circle and oval punches in the negative space. Lastly, I used the same sentiment stamp (hey sunshine) because it matches so well with these summer Riley stamps. Oh yeah, and I also did some sponging because Pam did it, and it just made it look better!

I know my stuff is nowhere near the level of Pam’s art, so I hope she doesn’t mind the C.A.S.E.!

Other materials used: stamps from Hanna Stamps!; white cardstock from Georgia Pacific; orange cardstock from WorldWin; black Brilliance ink from Tsukineko; markers from Copic; all punches, Only Orange ink and grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up!; white polka dot organdy ribbon from May Arts; all other ribbon from Pink Hedgehog Papercrafts; Nestabilities dies from Spellbinders.
