CORRECTION One of my readers, Mary, was kind enough to point out that I used the wrong name for the Stamp Set and Framelits. It should be Backyard Basics not Secret Garden. Thank you Mary! Time to stop typing my post after midnight! 🙂
Hello there peeps! How is it going? Me, well… like I said yesterday work is insanely busy. We have a conference tomorrow and all of the last minute stuff needs to be done today. What that really means is that everything needs to be done today! I did have another nice quiet evening at home last night. I sat at my craft desk and puttered around. It was very productive too, I got three cards made. Love it when that happens!
Before I get to today’s post it’s Thursday and that means it’s time for Stampin’ Up!’s one day specials. This is the last round of Thank you Thursday specials and it features Chevron Ribbon! You can see them below and click here to place an order for these and any other goodies you might need!
Today have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch is provided by the talented Rita…
I really like the fact that it has symmetry but is off just a little. The base of my card is So Saffron Card Stock and the background is a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The three bees are from the Backyard Basics Stamp Set
Secret Garden Stamp Set and are stamped in Jet Black Staz-On and cut out with the coordinating Backyard Basics Framelits Dies Secret Garden Framelits Dies. I punched a piece of So Saffron out with the Hexagon Punch and the bees and hexagon are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from one of the Paper Pumpkin Kits and is cut out with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. I threaded some Linen Thread through one of the Subtles Designer Buttons and adhered it with a Mini Glue Dot to complete the card. I love the softness of the So Saffron with the Very Vanilla and the bees are just neat! I appreciate you stopping by to see my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Rita. I hope that everyone has a good Thursday! 🙂
