Just Fun Stamping

Awesomely Artistic for FMS189

FMS189It has been awhile since I played along with Freshly Made Sketches.  My new Stampin’ Up! goodies arrived and play I must!  FMS189 is a sweet sketch by Narelle.  I was too busy playing with new stamps and papers to even try to get creative with the sketch.  It is much as you see here…

There were several stamp sets that I could barely wait to play with, and Awesomely 139950 Awesomely ArtisticArtistic was within my first five.  All 9 images are fantastic.  My first card with this stamp set only uses 3 of these images.  But I will be playing with more of them this weekend and will hopefully ink each and every one.  Two of the images were heat embossed with Black emboss powder and colored using alcohol pens (Calypso Coral and Olive Green for the floral panel and Smoky Slate added to the dragonfly).

Awesomely Artistic, Pretty Petals DSP StackMy card…  One other product that I was looking forward to is Pretty Petals DSP Stack. These stacks have been resized to 6 x 6″ instead of the previous 6-1/2 x 4-1/2″.  I believe there will be less waste to this new size.

There are four different DSP panels used in this card.  Four on the outside and one repeat on the inside.  The fourth might not be so obvious… have you spotted it?

I chose my colors from the listed colors in the DSP stack….  Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral, Olive Green and Mint Macaron. The card size is 5 x 5″.

I added DSP to the inside but deliberately left off the sentiment until I know how I wish to use this card.


I sincerely hope you are also playing with new products this weekend.  Awesomely Artistic stamp set is only one of so many wonderful new products.

Have fun stamping,

    Katy, your cards are always so beautifully done and this one is no exception. I love the color scheme you chose. Without even knowing it you influence what stamp sets I purchase. My younger daughter loves dragon flies so I’ll definitely be getting this one.
