From the Bottom of My Heart — FMS85

So, have you ever been over to Narelle Faruggia’s blog?  She is one talented Aussie stamper, and she has a great sketch for us at Freshly Made Sketches today.

I pulled out a fun set I haven’t used in a while, From My Heart.

From the Bottom of My Heart

I used some of the Pool Party Core-dinations card stock on this card, which I lightly sanded.  Did you know that Core-dinations card stock will be available in all colors in the new catalog on May 31?  Yes, it’s true!

I hope you’ll be able to come play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  From My Heart
Ink:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Raspberry Ripple, Pretty in Pink
Paper:  Pool Party Core-dinations card stock, Pool Party, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White, In-Color DSP stacks, Subtles DSP stacks
Embellishments:  Labels Collection framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Needlepoint Border Embossing Folders, Basic Gray 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Color Spritzer Tool, Small Heart punch, Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter

The Secret of Life…

…well, according to James Taylor it is enjoying the passing of time.  Hmmm…

I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for this card.

For the colors, I decided to play along with the color challenge at The Paper Players.

Yes, I used Bravo Burgundy!  I even had some scraps of it in my scrap file, which is where I always go first when looking for card stock.  I can’t even remember the last time I used Bravo Burgundy!  But I must say it does look good with this color combination.  That’s what I love about challenges — I get to step out of my box and use up some of the supplies that I totally forget about.  🙂

Enjoy your Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Attempt

I love the shabby chic/vintage look.  There are so many stampers out there who make this look appear so easy and pretty.  I just don’t find it to be very easy.  I think I am just too fond of straight lines and a clean look.  But every once in a while, I get the urge to try to make something with a vintage look.  I think I end up with a combination of shabby chic/vintage and clean and simple, but that’s ok.  I’ll keep trying!

Have a great Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I decided to play with a new stamp set today.  I know you’re probably glad I set Watercolor Winter aside for a bit.  🙂  I used the sketch over at The Paper Players.  I love the sketch that Nance made this week.
