Felt Flowers

One of the things that I love most about Spring is the beautiful flowers and the arrival of color into the landscape again.  I decided to pull out my Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits Dies.    I also pulled out my Flower Frenzy Bigz Die because I love the leaf branch in it.  I decided to use some pretty green felt with it.

Felt and FlowersI’ve been thinking about how three of my favorite colors will soon be retiring, and it makes me quite sad.  I’ve used two of them on this card — Strawberry Slush and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I am really going to miss them, so I will probably be using them a lot before June gets here and I have to say farewell.

Happy Wednesday!  And with the arrival of Wednesday, we get a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week the most talented Cindy Lovell is our hostess, and she has a great sketch for us.

I have a stamp that I’ve been wanting to ink up but it just hasn’t fit any of the cards I ‘ve needed to make lately.  But now that birthdays in our house and Valentine’s Day are behind us, I can move on to other cards.

I love the look of clear embossing on Very Vanilla card stock.  When I first saw Something Lacy, I knew that I’d want to use this technique with it.  I love the detail on this stamp.

I paired this stamp with a flower made from the Typeset dsp using the Flower Frenzy Bigz die.  I also used some of the White Jute Ribbon and Sahara Sand Lace Trim.

Typeset Flower Frenzy — FMS146

I’ve been looking forward to this Wednesday!  It’s time for a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, and I get the privilege and pleasure of being the hostess this week. Here’s my sketch for you:

While I did have a flower in mind while making the sketch, please feel free to use any shape you’d like.  That’s part of the fun of challenges — making the sketch work for you.

Typeset Flower Frenzy I love flowers, so I couldn’t resist the new Flower Frenzy Bigz die in the new catalog.  I used some different sheets of the Typeset dsp to make the flower.  All of the flower layers were made using the one Bigz die.  I just crumpled them up and straightened them out a little before layering them.  I used some of the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the top layer of the flower.

What’s under the flower?  The top row is a stamp from Tape It, which I embossed with black embossing powder.  The bottom row is some Washi Tape from the Sweet Sadie collection.  And the sentiment is from the Four You set (I get so much use out of that sentiment set!).

Typeset Flower Frenzy Close UpThe Pistachio Pudding Baker’s Twine was a little thick for the button I used, so I unraveled a couple of the strings on it to make it a little thinner.  It was easy to do.

The Clean Team came up with some great designs with this sketch, so be sure and check out their creations at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.  And we hope you’ll be able to play along and post your pictures in the gallery.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
