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!


Framed Christmas Wishes

I wanted to play along with the challenge at the Paper Players site today.  The challenge is to incorporate frames into a project.

When I saw this challenge I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Flourish Designer Frames in the Holiday catalog because I hadn’t even opened my package of them yet.  🙂

I ended up layering different labels on this card and added some banners at the bottom (you know I love banners).  I stamped one of the frame images from Four Frames with Gumball Green ink and framed it with a Flourish Designer Frame.  I layered that on top of a frame using an Apothecary Accents die, and layered that on top of a Snow Festival Designer Printed Tag.  Whew!  Lots of layering!

Well, enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
