I absolutely fell in love with this week's sketch at Friday Sketchers, so much so that I made three cards using the sketch. I used the same stamped sentiment on each card but used a wide variety of color combos.
For the first card that I made, I used patterned paper from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Stack. I embossed the background cardstock with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. To make the different papers stand out and pop, I inked the edges. To finish it off, I used Mulberry paper flowers fastened with some really neat brads. I wish I could remember where I got these brads because I sure would like to get more.
Then some orange Primas caught my eye and I decided to do the same card using bright colors. The paper for this card is also from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Stack. Once again I did some embossing with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and inked paper edges to help the different papers stand out. Then I added the Primas and brads.
Was I finished with this sketch? Oh, no! I then decided I wanted a distressed or vintage look. So I selected paper from a K & Company designer paper stack. I distressed the edges and inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then I finished off with Primas in coordinating colors topped with a button.
My embroidery machine has been in the shop for its annual service. So I took a ride to Benton this morning to see my granddaughters and pick up my machine. I am always so lost without it...just knowing it's not here if I want to use it.
It is hotter than blue blazes here in Little Rock today. I haven't heard the official high for today but I know it topped 100 degrees. That's too hot!!!
Luck, love and laughter,
