To show you some of the new product available in the 2021 Spring Mini Catalog, today’s inspiration was a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches – FMS471 and a color combination from the Global Design Project – GDP277.
I had a play with the new dies from the Beautiful Brushstrokes Die Set. These dies come with a coordinating stamp set, Brushed Blooms. This is a nice set.
Here is the result:
I created a stencil with the die of the brushstrokes and used it to add color to my Basic White background panel. First in Sahara Sand and then in Blushing Bride. I added the color with Blending Brushes. I really like the brushes as you get a nice soft and smooth application of color.
The sketch has a circle element and I cut a Rococo Rose frame using two of the Stitched Stapes Circle Dies. As well as cutting a circle into the background panel. I set the frame into the opening. To be sure I had the placement of the sentiment, Love You Bunches, from the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set where I wanted it, I stamped it on to a scrap of Basic White cardstock and positioned it in behind.
The dies in the Beautiful Brushstrokes Die Set include the pieces to make a three-step floral rose in two sizes and a leaf sprig. Using the colors per the challenge, I created three roses and one leaf to use as the four elements placed around the circle frame.
I chose to trim the edges of the background panel with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and matted it with a Basic White layer and added a Rococo Rose card base.
As a side note, I chose the sentiment from Wrapped Bouquet because it had a smaller footprint. The sentiments in the companion stamp set Brushed Blooms were too large for my circle. Another day and another card. Something to look forward to.
I might use this as the card I give to my husband for Valentine’s. We don’t really do hearts…but flowers…that is a whole other story…
Post Script: This card was recognized by both the Freshly Made Sketches Team and the Global Design Project team…how cool is that!
