FMS..cardkit play..


Today Hubby and I are off on the Annual Louie Vega 4th of July boat party. Its a lot of fun and we have been going ever since we moved to NYC.

I saw the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches at the same time as my new Simon Says Stamp cardkit arrived and I felt like it was meant to be..

And here is the stamp set from the kit - 

I kept my card super simple..

I stamped one of the leaf stamps onto the white die-cut panel, using the SSS Steel Blue hybrid ink that came in the kit. 

Much to my joy, I discovered that the flower stamp works with my existing SSS Dahlia Outline die - how cool is that! This was also stamped using the Steel Blue ink.

I watercoloured the flower using Distress Inks (Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass) and an aquabrush. 

The sentiment is by AlteNew and again stamped in the Steel Blue ink.

I love the soft hues of this card, it made me feel very relaxed just looking at it!



  1. This is such a beautiful bloom! I love the soft shade of blue. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  2. This is a ogre at realization of the sketch. I wish I could come party with you two on the boat!

  3. Totally meant to be! This flowers is gorgeous. Love your colors! So glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  4. I love how crisp this is. Cara x
