This week at Freshly Made Sketches we have a little surprise for you and a dear stamper that inspires us all! Not only do we have this awesome sketch courtesy of Allisa Chilton but we are participating in a birthday blog hop for the amazing Vicki Burdick. I’m pretty sure everyone has seen one of Vicki’s lovely cards…certainly if you are on Pinterest!! Imagine our delight when we found out about this birthday blog hop in her honor. We just had to join in!
One of the notable things about Vicki’s stamping is her use of flowers. Truly, so many of her flower cards are jaw-dropping! I have also noticed that she uses Regal Rose like no other. So I tried to channel my inner Vicki and try my hand at both. Hmmmmm…she is the queen for a reason!! I started with this lovely hydrangea from the Best of Flowers (March) set and stamped it onto some First Edition DSP. I saw Vicki do this a number of times with the poppies set and had to give it a go. I re-stamped the flower portion onto Very Vanilla, colored it and cut it out. I thought some Regal Rose DSP from the Brights Designer Paper Pack would be good as a background panel. Of course, Vicki’s cards seem to feature the most gorgeous bows so I had to add one on! I pinned on the sentiment with a Vintage Trinkets safety pin to finish it off.
I hope you will join us in wishing Vicki a very happy birthday! I know you will have a great time with Allisa’s sketch this week too! So glad you hopped on through today. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
