It is my turn to hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I hope you like my sketch! I thought it would be fun for showcasing designer papers but also for stamping. You can stamp all three panels separately or show us a split panel image. Knowing what I see from week to week, I’m certain you will come up with all kinds of amazing projects. As usual, the design team already has. I have to say that it is fun to see what others create with a sketch you designed!!
I decided to go the three image route with my card. With all the projects I’ve been working on this month, I had a potpourri of designer papers sitting around on my table and thought I should combine them. I pulled out an old favorite retired hostess set Of the Earth for the flower stamp. Some retired sets just have to stay in the drawer because they are so awesome…this is one I love! The background paper is from Twitterpated DSP and you know what?? It is carrying over to the new catalog! Yippee!!! I was a little worried about the Pear Pizzazz print (and I’m officially out of Pear Pizzazz). But you know what? Old Olive is a PERFECT go-with color. Whew! Problem solved and more Twitterpated coming to my house! The Calypso Coral paper is from Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB). Sale-a-bration is just a gift that keeps on giving! I inked up the flowers in Old Olive and Calypso Coral and stamped them using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig. What would I do without that tool??!! Finally I tied on some Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding with a potato masher triple bow. I added a tag using the Jewelry Tag Punch and a part of a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
I hope you enjoy this sketch and that you will play along this week! Now hop right over to Freshly Made Sketches and visit the other design team members blogs. You’ll be happy you did!
Sorry I’m a little late on my post this morning. I’m having some painting done at our house and it is a little distracting (but it will be nice when it is done!!). One wall is very close to Midnight Muse and the others are a bit darker than Very Vanilla. Yes, all wall colors are based on SU colors at my house (I’m sure I’m not alone). Oh yeah, Midnight Muse??!! It is one of the new In-Colors 2012-14 and I am already in love. I just got it so I’ll be working in into a project as soon as possible.
Ok, off to finish cutting for a Customer Appreciation Class I am holding tomorrow. I’ll be sharing those projects with you soon. Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
