I hope your December has been good to you so far! I am having a hard time accepting that it is already December…surely I am not alone! I have not had a lot of crafting time over the last week but I’m hoping to get back to it today. If you have had the same thing going on, I have just the solution for you. This week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches will get you moving right along! The incredible Jen Mitchell is our hostess this week and she has created one that is sure to inspire.
I am still completely obsessed with this flower from Altenew’s Beautiful Day. For today’s card, I stamped it onto White Vellum with Versamark Ink and embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Pretty, isn’t it?! I picked the backdrop of Winter Wonderland DSP because the prints are so subtle but yet add so much. Using the Banners Framelits, I cut some Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Wishes with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added a little border of Gold Foil to the DSP which coordinates nicely with the embossed flower and gives the print later a little more stability for raising it up on Dimensionals. The center of the flower is a Basic Pearl that I colored with a Sharpie black marker. I love how it brings your eye more to the flower!
It was nice taking a break from Christmas card stamping but I need to get back to work if I’m to get stuff mailed in time. Please tell me I’m not the only one with lots more to stamp!!
I hope you enjoy this week’s sketch and the lovely work from our Design Team. Thanks so much for stopping in today. See you soon!! Happy stamping!
