Suite Sampler – Thanks

The sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches – FMS484 is “clean”.  Clean usually means lots of “white space” but today I flipped white space to “black space”.  Hope you like it!

And this is the result:



I wanted to use the Gilded Leafing and selected the silhouette Flower image from the Suite Sampler stamp set.  I thought the gold would look more dramatic on a black base.  I selected the black and gold grid patterned sheet from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for the background.

  • For the Square (1¾”), I opted for Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered this square to the background World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (4” x 5¼”).
  • The Flower image from the Suite Sampler stamp set and the Splatter image from the Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp set were stamped in Versamark ink and heat-set with Heat & Stick Powder.
  • The panel then took a bath in my Gilded Leafing tin container.  The excess Leafing was then brushed away.
  • For the sentiment, I chose Thanks, from the Simply Succulents stamp set.  Such a pretty font.  The sentiment was stamped with Stazon Black ink on to a piece of Gold Foil cardstock and trimmed (1¾” x ½”).
  • I still have the lovely Brushed Gold cardstock from many years ago.  I debated using it for the card base but ultimately chose to use it as an accent layer (4⅛” x 5⅜”).

Keeping everything clean and tidy, I chose a Basic Black Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”).

A pretty card.  I like the drama of the Gold and Black for such a simple layout.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda!
