Freshly Made #30
April 15, 2012
In complete contrast to last weekend's wintry weather, we have a gorgeous, sunny weekend in Melbourne. I have been out sweeping today as the leaves are well and truly coming down. My roses are enjoying their last hurrah for the season and I have a photo of one of my favourites at the end of the post.
Today, the card I have for you is based on this week's Freshly Made Sketch #30, shown below.
I have been wanting to use this doily stamp called 'Hello, Doily' (not currently available in Australia) and this sketch is a great opportunity. I have white embossed it on Island Indigo card stock and then matched it will the Pool Party floral from the 'Domestic Goddess' DSP because it is so fresh and sweet. The centre of the doily is a Calypso Coral flower (in the Joanne Leddy style) with a pearl centre, sprayed with some Champage shimmer mist. The gingham panel has been stamped with the PTI 'Background Basics: Gingham' stamp. I have made this into a Mother's Day card for my lovely mother-in-law Betty.
|Stamps||Hello, Doily (NAH), Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Background Basics: Gingham (PTI)
|Card stock & Papers||Bazzill White Linen, Island Indigo, Calyspo Coral, Domestic Goddess DSP, Whisper White
|Ink||Versamark, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo|
|Accessories||Pearl brad (not SU), Basic Pearls, White Seam Binding ribbon (not SU)|
|Tools||Beautiful Wings Sizzlit, Big Shot, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Fancy Flower punch, 5-Petal flower punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Dimensionals, Glue dots, Champagne Shimmer paint (to make shimmer mist), White embossing powder, Heat gun
Almost forgot, here is a photo of one of my roses that is lovely at the moment. Lots of blooms to cut and bring inside. They start off as a pink/apricot and become more yellow as they age. They last really well in a vase.
Thank you to the DT at Freshly Made Sketches for this award!
This is one of the prettiest and sweetest cards I have ever seen! Love how you arranged everything on the card.

Judy this is so pretty, your embellishments are perfect against that pretty DSP.
Your roses are devine, wouldn't it be lovely if they bloomed all year.
