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.

Felt and Flowes Close UpI paired a Project Life Grid Card with some Stacked with Love dsp for this card,  The sentiment is from Hi There.

Hey Feathers — FMS150

It’s the last Wednesday of Summer vacation for my kids, and I think I’m probably sadder about that than they are.  I love having them home for the Summer, and I love the relaxed schedule that Summer provides.  I’ll have one in high school, one in middle school, and one in elementary school again this year.  And that means three different start times, and lots of activities to keep track of.

Of course, Wednesday also means it’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. And this week the always delightful and majorly talented, Linda Callahan has a fabulous sketch for us.

One of the new sets in the upcoming Holiday catalog that I love is the Four Feathers set.  Just like the name says, there are four fabulous feather stamps in this set.  And to make it even more fabulous, there is a coordinating framelits set.  I love that!

Hey FeathersI decided to flip the sketch over on its side to better accommodate the feathers.  I embossed them with Pool Party and Crushed Curry embossing powders, and added a little Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine on the black button.  The sentiment is from the Hi There stamp set.

Hey Feathers Close UpI hope you can find some time to join us and play along with this challenge.  We always love to see what you make.  You can drop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to get some inspiration from the design team.  They always inspire me!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Bloom

Hello BloomHere’s a simple card using the stamp, Bloom for You.   I love how it coordinates with punches, which makes it even easier to use.  The sentiment is from the set, Hi There, and I love the font on this one.

Hello Bloom Close UpI paired it with some dsp from the Flashback pack, and used one of the Project Life Grid Cards (which are a steal at 50 cards for just $3.95).  I used the Spiral Border punch at the top of the card.

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
