Wildflower Path FMS518

Hello stampers,
     Today's card started out with the stamped image & no other plans for the rest of the card, just that I wanted to use this new set. So I set out to try to find a sketch & just my luck Freshly Made Sketches has a brand new challenge that worked perfectly with my little circle
     For my card, I started with a Daffodil Delight Cardstock base, followed by a layer of the same color that was embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D Folder. For the stamped image, Basic White Cardstock was cut out using the Layering Circle Dies, stamped with the Wildflower Path Stamp Set using Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green & Old Olive Inks. The sentiment comes from the same set & was stamped using Memento Black Ink. After stamping, the circle was then attached to a Polished Pink Cardstock scalloped circle using the above dies & Brushed Brass Butterflies were added.
     I've included the sketch below, if you'd like to make a card with it. It's a current sketch so you also have the ability to enter their challenge by clicking on the link in the 1st paragraph.

Bamboo Beauty Friendship

Hello stampers,
     I spent 6 years stationed on the island of Okinawa, Japan with my husband. So when it comes to Asian-type stamps I usually buy them, I sold a few after I left dummy me didn't think I needed those even though I had scrapbooks to finish. This set was a favorite from the beginning but I'm just now getting around to buying it, I think a lot had to do with what could I do with it. I happened to come across a blog where they entered a challenge where it needed it to be a CAS (clean & simple) using 1/3 or less. So here is my try at the rules for this challenge just not following an actual challenge, I don't know if this would qualify for any of their challenges but it was definitely out of my comfort zone.
     I started with a Soft Sea Foam Cardstock base, followed by a layer of Mossy Meadow Cardstock. For the stamped image, I used Basic White Cardstock, masked off a portion (hard to see) under the bamboo & used Soft Sea Foam Ink with my Blending Brush to add some color. I then used the bamboo & leaves from the Bamboo Beauty Stamp Set with Mossy Meadow Ink. The sentiment is also from this set & also stamped with Mossy Meadow Ink.

Happy Hedgehogs Hello

Hello stampers,
     Today's card was made with another set that I think is so cute from the new mini catalog. I love hedgehogs!
     I started with a Basic White Cardstock base followed by a layer of Polished Pink Cardstock embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Folder. For the stamped piece, I used Basic White Cardstock then stamped some images from the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set using Soft Suede Ink. These 2 images were then colored using Old Olive Blends Combo Pack, Polished Pink Blends Combo Pack & Crumb Cake Blends Combo Pack. The sentiment came from the Special Moments Stamp Set using Polished Pink Ink. This was then attached to a Soft Suede Cardstock layer before finishing the card off.

Honeybee Home Best Of Luck

Hello stampers,
     I hope y'all had a great weekend! Today's card is another old sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches blog.
     I started my card off with a Pale Papaya Cardstock base, followed by a layer of the Heart & Home DSP (love this paper!) Next, I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to die cut Very Vanilla Cardstock which I used the stamps from the Honeybee Home Stamp Set with Cinnamon Cider Ink. I colored the flowers using the Pale Papaya Blends Combo Pack & added just a tad of color with the Old Olive Blends Combo Pack before attaching this to the card with Multipurpose Glue. I then cut out 3 circles using the Layering Circle Dies from Pale Papaya & Cinnamon Cider Cardstock & stamped a bee on each one using Cinnamon Cider Ink. I really like this sketch may have to use it again
