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.

Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Pocketful of Posies DSP, Rich Razzleberry DSP

Cheers

Narelle
