Happy Thursday, everyone! I had a card order recently and since my friend is not a stamper, I don’t necessarily have to make my cards multi-layered or embellished! She mails them, so they need to be fairly flat and simple. This week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch by Rita was a perfect way to use some pretty MME papers from the Nostalgia line.
These colors are just so soft and calming, perfect for a get-well card:
Since I was already cutting the papers, I went ahead and made two cards, just changing the diecut trim a bit. For my focal image, I used a clear block and applied it directly to my Baja Breeze ink pad, then “stamped” it on my panel for a dreamy background! I love how it looks different on each image; I think the cardstock must have a grain to it, because you can see how the color seems to go horizontal on one image and vertical on the other:
The image from from Countryside, and it is stamped in Basic Gray ink.
The next one uses the Retrosketches sketch this week:
Same papers, still soft colors, but a more feminine look:
This uses the retired Tiny Teacup, stamped in Primrose Petals, embellished with a paper button and little twill banner. Thanks for visiting—any questions, shoot me an email!
We had fun yesterday at the Easter party, but I forgot my camera—of course! My friend let me borrow hers, but her camera card is smaller than mine and I can’t figure out how to download the photos…bummer! Any help out there? Anyway, we dyed some eggs today too:
Quite an experience….and of course, we had to eat the ones that were so cracked that they couldn’t be embellished!!! LOL!
