Another week has flown by! I think maybe because my mom was here and we were busy, busy, busy!! *smile* We did some stamping that I’ll share with you soon but she helped me create my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge too. Our sketch hostess this week is the amazing Karren Johnson and she has a classic one for us this week. As you can imagine, the team has all kinds of variations that are super fun!
The minute I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to use!! This gorgeous (and I mean seriously gorgeous) die set is from the new Stampin’ Up Catalog. I have not seen anything really like it before and I’m in love! Ok….it is a flower so it really should not surprise anyone how much I love it, haha!! There are many ways to use the Detailed Floral Thinlits and the coordinating Floral Phrases stamp set but I stuck to the color combination in the catty because I love it so much. For the record, I bought the whole suite! I cut the bottom part using a 4″ wide piece of Thick Whisper White and then used the edge piece to put a similar border on the top. Using only the border die, I cut the edge of some Night of Navy and cut the rest down to fit behind the floral cutouts. So striking! I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Night of Navy. Then for the circle. I kept thinking it just needed a bow since it a wedding card so I used retired White Seam Binding (I’m guessing you still have a stash of this too) to make a shabby bow. It is the perfect touch!!
I’m on a trip this week (sitting in Chicago on a delay as I type) but hope to share more with you later this week from my stamping with mom. Until then, I hope you enjoy this look at the new products! Let me know if you need more info on this suite or any other! Make sure you go check out the rest of the cards from the DT too. Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
