Oh my...what a busy week at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! A new release and five mini blog hops featuring each of the sets has literally kept us hoppin'! Now it's Saturday and time for a new sketch over at The Sweet Stop. Even though the release festivities are over, I found myself reaching for one of the new sets once again...LOVE Long Stem Silhouettes and know it will get a lot of use since it is so versatile.
Creative Nugget: The choice of colors for this card came together when I saw these two pieces of patterned paper lying on the floor next to each other in my scrap pile. After they were sized correctly for the sketch, one was given a punched border and both were stitched to Neenah Solar White and attached to a Kraft card front. The white strip was scored and the Baker's twine was wrapped around the card between the score lines. The long stem flowers were stamped twice in VersaMagic and white embossed on a piece of Kraft card stock. This panel was stitched to a piece of white. The sentiment is from the Be Joyful stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs, and was also stitched to a piece of Kraft. A button was added and a Viva Pearl Pen was used in the centers of the flowers to finish the card.
There's lots of wonderful inspiration over at The Sweet Stop from my fellow Sugar Babies so be sure to check out each one and leave a little love behind. Here's this week's SSS193!
