Freshly Made Sketches 125

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a card for this weeks challenge over on the Freshly Made Sketches blog.

Here's this week's sketch.  It is pretty basic so I had to think outside of the box to decide on how I was going to embellish on it.

First I decided on which Designer Series Paper I wanted to use, and from that I chose my color combo. I went with something bright and cheery - the Quatrefancy DSP!

I thought that a little bit of Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo would be nice on a day we are expecting more STUPID SNOW!

To make the flower, I stamped the image from the Simple Stems stamp set three times - once in Island Indigo, once in Melon Mambo, and one final time in Daffodil Delight.  Then I cut out the different layers of flowers.  I used my two-way glue pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds around each flower edge for extra sparkle.  I layered them with Dimensionals and added a Basic Rhinestone to the center.  The final step was to stamp the sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set in Melon Mambo.

FMS115 + New Product Sneak Peek!

Hi Stampers!

It's snowing!  I guess winter is really here and I have to finally face the fact that I don't live in the desert.  Boo!  The only good thing about snow is that it is an excellent excuse to stay in and stamp!

Today I have a card that made using some of the new goodies I was able to pre-order from the Stampin' Up! Occasions 2014 catalog.  You will be able to order from this catalog beginning on January 3rd, 2014.  If you are in need of a catalog, send me an email and I can get one sent out to you!

My card was inspired by this week's challenge on the Freshly Made Sketches blog.

This was the sketch for the challenge this week.
And here's my card!  I love the clean and simple design!  And hello...don't you love that NEW Designer Series Paper???? It's fabulous and I love the color combo!  Also check out the cute new stamp  and I'll let you in on a secret....I did not cut that banner by hand....
