Freshly Made Sketches #38

Hey Everyone

Stampin’ Up! in Australia recently had a special that if you purchased three packs of DSP you received a fourth one free.  I’m a sucker for a special so I took advantage of this offer. One of the packs I got was Pocketful of Posies, one that I’d never even taken notice of before.  I decided to open it today and found I really love a lot of the papers in there!  I found this great sketch by Linda at Freshly Made Sketches and christened my new DSP.

I used an old favourite stamp set that is now retired – Echoes of Kindness.  I stamped the flower and then cut it out.  I then stamped it a second time and coloured in every 2nd petal.  I then cut out the coloured ones and raised them up – not sure if you can see the raised petals in the photo but it looks really effective in real life.  Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Beautifully done! I love all of the extra layers, the dimensional flower, the beautiful color, and the ribbon treatment…. everything! TU for explaining how you made the cut out flower so special. Kit Marie

  2. Holy cow! This card is a stunner – and I am amazed that you cut out that intricate flower. :) An absolutely gorgeous creation. Thanks for playing along with this week’s sketch.
