Today is a busy day on the blog! First up, I get to share Day 3 of the SugarPea Designs Winter Release sneak peek! Given that it is Wednesday, I have combined it with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge with a fabulous sketch by the lovely Kim Singdahlsen. The SugarPea Designs release goes live on Friday, January 22nd at 2p and make sure you check out the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of this post.
One of today’s products is a beautiful stamp set called Friendship Blooms (with a coordinating SugarCut die set). The flowers in this set are spectacular. You will see them from me. A lot!! For today, though, I wanted to focus on the simplicity of one gorgeous image. I know that when we craft, we have a tendency to think more is more. Anyone who has been with me for a bit knows that I’m a bit of a minimalist. I do envy those who can put together layers of gorgeousness but for me, this is how I roll. And this stamp set allows me to do just that without feeling like I have missed something.
When I created this card, I needed a number of sympathy cards. The last year has taken such a toll on so many families and our friends are not exempt. I felt like this beautiful clean sketch combined with one pretty flower was perfect for what I needed. In truth, I colored a number of the flowers and created a few versions. But some of the cards needed to go out quickly so I only have this one photographed. The sentiment comes from a favorite of mine, Everyday Sentiments, but the sentiments from the set would be lovely on the same card. The rest of the products for today are equally awesome and I’ll be showing them to you in the upcoming weeks (and I’m sure the hop will inspire you too).
