Hello Love for Freshly Made Sketches

Hello Love, All Abloom

 

Hello, Love! Just typing that makes me think of my mother! She was from England and would frequently greet me and others with that phrase. I love hearing it and have even continued that traditional greeting for my family, especially my children. I hope that they will always have fond memories of me saying that to them one day! So, when I saw this cute stamp set in the new Annual Catalog (it’s a hostess stamp set), I just had to have it. It is not particularly my style but that’s OK. I will hang onto my memories any way I can!

FMS Final 151-001

I decided to play along with Freshly Made Sketches this week. I have been following along faithfully for a couple of years, but their style actually intimidates me. I don’t know if my card is exactly what they are wanting, but it’s fun just to play along and do something new with some fun products. I really love this stamp set and the DSP stack, All Abloom, which has lots of pretty patterns!

Wondrous Wreath Meets Flower Patch

Wonderous Wreath, Flower Patch, Mixed Bunch, Park Lane

Looking for a quick card to make? Wondrous Wreath is a great stamp set to have on hand and with a framelit to cut it out, who wouldn’t enjoy using it? I made this card after seeing the inspiration photo from The Card Concept shown below.

the card concept 17

I think my style is closest to the Clean & Layered style. My card started out by choosing the stamp sets, Wondrous Wreath. I love the leaves in it but, since it is a wreath, I needed to cover the center and chose the flowers from Flower Patch. The full wreath stamp was inked up with Wild Wasabi and stamped off once, then the second layer stamp was inked in the same color, but kept in the darker shade for some color variation. Flower Patch is a great stamp set and was perfect covering the center of the wreath. After inking the large flower in Daffodil Delight and layering it with the smaller flower in Wild Wasabi, I cut out the two images, the wreath and large flower, with their framelits and then popped them up with dimensionals and laid it down off center, same as the inspiration photo. Two ribbons were layered together and taped down, then the cute little flower from Mixed Bunch was stamped and fussy-cut. Lastly, the sentiment from Embellished Events was inked up and cut with the Itty Bitty Banner framelit, along with Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi, my favorite way to make a simple sentiment stand out on a card! This card came together very quickly and feels like a wonderful summer day, don’t you think?!
