Freshly Made Sketch #33

Rich Razzleberry is my absolute favourite of all the Stampin’ Up! colours but it has been a little neglected of late, so I decided it was time to make up for that!! The card is based on this week’s Freshly Made Sketch challenges, and uses Simply Soft stamp set (hostess set) which I have stamped with Stazon and then water coloured using a blender pen. The DSP I have used is another much neglected one, called Pocketful of Posies.  I have dragged out the very last (sob…) of my precious Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon (retired) and matching button.  The greeting comes from Field Flowers stamp set and I have popped some half back pearls on either side for a little added bling. I thought I would put this card in for the latest Just Add Ink challenge as well, which is to create something for Mother’s Day.  As many of you would know, my beloved Mum passed away just over two years ago, so I can’t send this card to her, but I know she would love it if she were still here.  She is the person who encouraged me to be creative and enjoy my crafts, so this one is for you Mum. xx.
I like this particular sketch, so just had to make a second card! 🙂 This one is in a completely different style, with lovely bright, cheery colours.  It uses the gorgeous Sweet Shop DSP from the Autumn / Winter catalogue along with Sweet Cake stamp set.  Just loving these colours too, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder.  I have stamped the image onto Shimmer White card stock which has given it that really lovely motley sort of look (not sure how to explain that one! 🙂 but I like how it turn out )  Oh, and don’t forget that cute brad, also available from the Autumn / Winter catalogue. I’ll be back shortly with some exciting offers from Stampin’ Up!. Hope you have a crafty weekend!  Happy stamping! Chris
