Vivid Springtime Vases — FMS179

Happy Wednesday!  And Wednesdays bring new challenges at Freshly Made Sketches each week.  This go around, I get the pleasure of being the hostess and I have a pretty simple and clean sketch for you to try.

Since the sketch is pretty simple, I wanted to keep my card clean and simple.  I pulled out my Vivid Vases stamp and watercolored it with an aquapainter.  I used a card base of Soft Sky card stock which was embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder.

I used a little strip of dsp from the Stacked with Love stack, and added a button.  I rounded two of the corners, and made myself stop.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Whole Lot of Wonderful — Clean and Simple Style

Whole Lot of Wonderful


When life gets busy, it seems like I tend to lean toward the Clean and Simple (CAS) style even more.  I love to color, and have since I was a little girl.  This Vivid Vases stamp is perfect for me — a chance to color, yet it’s still CAS.

I added some strips of Sticky Strip to the bottom — two rows of two strips each, and then poured Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter on top.  Easy peasy!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
