Hello everyone and welcome to Friday! It’s supposed to feel like 110 degrees here today, I’m not looking forward to that! I am looking forward to this weekend because my box of goodies from the Holiday Catalog Pre-Order arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to play with all of the new stuff! 🙂
Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week the sketch comes from Jennifer T. and she has given us this…
I have been wanting to use the Pleasant Poppies Background stamp for a while now and I realized that if I cut it out I could use it for not just a background stamp! The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock and I used the En Français Wood Mount Background Stamp inked in Crumb Cake for a nice tone-on-tone look. I embossed a piece of Real Red Card Stock with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and across that I added a piece of Wild Wasabi that I embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Pleasant Poppies Clear Mount Background Stamp is stamped in Basic Black and colored in with Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers. After I cut it out with my Paper Snips I mounted it to a piece of Crumb Cake and then mounted that to the Real Red piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. I really like the color combination and I love the Pleasant Poppies Stamp. I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge card and that you have a great day!
