Another busy week is flying by! I hope you have been enjoying yours. We have another great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week. This one is courtesy of Cindy Lovell. She is a fabulous stamper and I just love her work.
I think this card should have the theme “old meets new”. I added a few retiring items on here but also brought out a brand new product. The stamp set Backyard Basics is on the cut list and I suspect it will sell out fast. Get it while you can! I just love this flower and wanted to color it. So guess what I used?? The BRAND NEW Blendabilities. These are alcohol based markers and are so fabulous!! I got the upcoming color sets in my latest Artisan box and this is my first attempt at using them. I have a lot to learn about this style of coloring but I’m already addicted!! This uses the Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Assortments. Each color assortment comes with a light, medium and dark marker. These will be available really soon….all in the new catalog! To complete the sketch I used the Ovals Framelits to cut the largest scalloped oval and used the Square Lattice EF on it (also on the retiring list). The ribbon is from last year’s Occasions Catalog and I had some hoarded away.
I hope you will join us for this fun challenge this week. The team has some beautiful creations and I know you will love them all!
If you missed it, please make sure you go back to my post from last night because I have a BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY!!! All the details are there so go take a look.
So glad you stopped in today. My boys are on spring break and I’m supposed to work some more this week. Hoping to fit in some stamping too. If so, I’ll be sure to share! See you soon!
