Freshly Made Sketches

I'm participating in a challenge today - I've mentioned before how challenges are a great way to get your creative juices flowing...

This time I'm using a card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #133

And here is what I came up with:

I used Raspberry Ripple cardstock, and Strawberry Slush DSP from the Quatrefancy Specialty pack. I cut the DSP using the largest of the Sunburst Collection Framelits, and matted it on Basic Black cardstock, offset slightly.

The banner is cut from the Gold Foil Sheet, the stamp set is So Very Grateful, both are from the Celebrate The Everyday catalogue.

Now you're not seeing double - I did it this way on purpose!

I double stamped the image and the sentiment with Raspberry Ripple ink and Gold Encore ink. And the joy of the clear block stamps is that I simply eye-balled it for the double stamp! Love it! (Can you tell I like to take the easy way out??)

Thanks to what I'm learning from my poll on the right    ->  ->   ->   I am listing the details to make the card below.

Card Base - Raspberry Ripple - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Circle Cut - Quatrefancy DSP Strawberry Slush, Basic Black - largest framelit in Sunburst Collection
Banner - Gold Foil - 1" x 5", and used a square punch to cut the bottom.
Matted Focal Point - Basic Black 3 1/4" x 3", Whisper White 3" x 2 3/4" 
Stamp Set: So Very Grateful
Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Gold Encore

I hope you enjoyed your visit and that  you will come back again!

Happy Stamping

Ask and You Will Receive!

I'm still taking votes in my poll on the right, but those who have already answered really want to see more videos... so here we go!!

I love flowers, and I was so excited to see the Spiral Flower Originals Die in the Celebration catalogue. Since I've received it I've made lots of flowers and the more you make - the faster and easier it becomes!
Here's a video with some tips:

And here's a project I made using the die:

I hope you enjoyed today's video - there will be lots more!!
