Freshly Made Sketches #64 & Sneak Peek!

Hello and welcome to Thursday! I will be your guide today for some new items from Stampin’ Up! I got my Spring Catalog Pre-Order on Wednesday and mounted all of my stamps and played a little. I LOVE the new stuff! I can’t wait for you to see it and get your hands on it. If you need a catalog click the contact me, provide me some info and I’ll get one out to you.

Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week Cindy has given us this clever little sketch…

FMS 64

I really like the sketch! 🙂 I also thought it would be a perfect way to show you some of the new items so here we go! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is Raspberry Ripple. I stamped the greeting in Whisper White Craft Ink from the Make a Wish Stamp Set* in the lower left corner. A piece of Patio Party Designer Series Paper is adhered across the top half. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White, the top corners are rounded with the 1″ Circle Punch, that I embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. The bottom edge is punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and then I embossed right above that with the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. Both pieces are adhered to the card with some SNAIL. The oval is cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies* and I pierced the edge with the Occasion Paper-Piercing Pack* and Paper-Piercing Tool. I punched out a piece of Whisper White with the Large Oval Punch and embossed that with Cloudy Day Folder* too. The butterflies are form the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and are stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch*. I adhered them to the ovals with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Make a Wish Stamp Set* and is stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink. The two embossing folders are great and I love the Bitty Butterfly Punch! I hope that you enjoyed my Freshly Made Sketches card and your sneak peek at some of the new items from the Spring Catalog.
