Sketchy Cosmos Cards


Can you believe it is Thursday already? I can't! I made these cards for some friends of mine who I thought could use a little bit of flowery cheer. This is the Sketchy Cosmos stamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I colored the image with my Bic Mark its and added a bit of Stickles (of course). I embossed the pink paper with a cuttlebug folder (it's a perfect match!) and tied a ribbon around it. I inked around the edges of the image panel with black ink and adhered it to a panel of green cardstock. I added the three brads to the bottom of the panel and adhered that to the pink panel. The pink panel was then attached to a white card base. For the second card I inked around the image with black ink and attached it to a panel of green cardstock. I added brads and a metal tab for embellishments. I stamped the sentiment on a white panel, cut it out and attached it to a green panel and trimmed it to fit the stamp. I adhered both pieces to a yellow panel along with some prima flowers and brad centers. Very quick and easy, but very cheery and elegant, I think. I found this image was easy to color and think it could be used for several occassions, such as birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, get well, anniversary...actually, I can't think of anything it wouldn't be good for! Ok, maybe a guy wouldn't be super psyched about it... but that's another story...
Lindsay has created yet another fun set of stamps this week - it's the Doodle Flower set. It is only $4.50 this week in the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff shop! I am hoping to get to play with that set this weekend. I'm sure if you hop on over to Lindsay's blog Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog, you can link to some beautiful projects the Design Team has made using this fun new set! See you soon, and Happy Digi Stamping!!!!

Whoa these are stunning! I love that you did it in two different colors! I haven't tried this stamp out yet. I guess it intimidates me a bit to color it, but you've done it wonderfully!

Both cards are stunning - I think I'll have to CASE them! The pink one with the matching embossing is awesome and oh so coordinated! The embellishments add just the right touch too. :)

Beautiful cards, Tracey! I just love seeing the samples made with Lindsay's digi stamps.....they are truly brought to life all colored and jazz up, happily added to a fun paper crafting creation! :> Thursdays (or in my case Fridays....I seem to be running a day and a dollar late this month!) are a favorite day for me to come and visit you in your online home and see what you've gotten your creative groove on with! :>
