We have an awesome week for you over at Freshly Made Sketches! To start, we have a super fun sketch that you are sure to love. It comes from our resident queen of layers and fussy cutting…the lovely Narelle! And we also have a great announcement! GUEST DESIGNERS!! And in true FMS style, you are going to be wow’d by these two stampers!!
First to my card. I am all in on copper! I mean seriously ALL IN!!! Stampin’ Up has new copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Copper Metallic Thread in the new catty and it is so pretty. Coppery, kind of rose gold-ish….and gorgeous! I kept this card super clean to show it off! I stamped using the great flower from Flourishing Phrases in Versamark Ink onto White Vellum Card Stock and heat embossed the image with the Copper EP. Then I cut this little flower our using the coordinating Flourish Thinlits from Thick WW Card Stock. I “smooshed” the flower into Versamark and heat embossed it too. To get it nice and thick and metallic looking, I re-stamped and re-embossed. It looks just like it was cut from a piece of metal. I layered the white banner piece under the sentiment to help it pop more. The hardest part of this card is securing it together. We all know that vellum is particularly fussy on that. I used Glue Dots that were folded in half (ish) and tucked them under the bases of the flowers in the stamped image and on the die cut too. There is also one under the ‘o’ in Hello. One more note: this copper is way prettier than in the picture. Something about metallics and sparkles that never quite photograph true.
Now to our guest stampers! Shannon Jaramillo and Cécile Ribon have bravely agreed to join our happy little band of enablers through the summer! In fairness, I did warn them to hold on to their wallets but I have it on good authority that they might be enablers themselves!! *smile* We are so happy to have them with us! Make sure you go check out their work along with that of the rest of the DT. Beautiful!
I’ll be back on Friday with the latest from Fancy Friday. We have a doozy of theme this month so you won’t want to miss it! Until then, thanks for stopping in!
