Simply Sketched

Good Morning, my friends,

It's a glorious morning here in our little town.  The sun is shining...the skies are blue...and the birds are singing like crazy.  I was up and at 'em early this morning and I created a sweet card using another of my "retiring" friends, "Simply Sketched".  I love the images in this stamp set.

"Simply Sketched"  Item #129672
Here's my card for today...

I stamped the flower image on a scrap of the Naturals Ivory card stock with Staz On Ink.  I love that card stock because it just has a rustic feel.  I also like to watercolor on it.  It's not the same as the regular watercolor paper but it still works.  I love the palette of Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple to go along with it.  It just seems very soft and sweet.  I know that none of us really loves creating sympathy cards but I'm glad I could make this one for a very dear friend who lost her father this week.

I'm heading out soon to attend a very exciting webinar today all about our new partnership with Project Life.  I got all of my PL preorder items in the mail yesterday and I can't wait to play with them today at the team gathering.  Project Life is going to be such a huge blessing in my scrapbooking life.  Have you heard of it before?  Have you tried it?  Well, hang on to your hats because the exclusive Project Life designs for Stampin' Up! will seriously rock your socks.  Get those boxes of photos out of  your closet and get ready to get them into beautiful keepsake albums that you and your family will treasure for a lifetime.

If you haven't checked out the Retiring List lately, you'll want to see it today.  Stamps and Accessories are flying off of the shelves.  Don't miss out on the items you really want for your stamp room.

Wishing you a wonderful day,

  1. Hi,
    I happened to see this card on Pintrest and just had to see who made it. It is simply beautiful and I would like to try and make if that is ok?
    Did you score after the flower was stamped?
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi Debbie! Absolutely! CASE away. I scored first and then stamped and colored. I really love the grid technique. It's simple but really pretty when it's done. :-)
