Favored Flowers DSP (Sale-A-Bration)!
February 22, 2023
Beautiful Thistle Bundle
The Beautiful Thistle bundle in the January – April Mini Catalog (page 60) features a great selection of stamps and dies that enable you to create a varied selection of thistles. There are dies to cut out the stamped images and detailed dies to build up thistles from the different pieces.
The stamped images are beautiful line drawings that enable you to color them in a variety of different ways. So whether water coloring, markers or even pastels are your favorite coloring medium of the moment, you will love these stamps.
Card Sketch for Beautiful Thistle Card
The project that I am showing today has been created from a card sketch. Sketches are always a great starting point for your creativity. You don’t have to stick rigidly to the layout, you can always change the shapes and orientations on a sketch if that works better for you.
Favored Flowers DSP with Beautiful Thistle Bundle
This card needed some Designer Series Paper. This Favored Flowers pack is one of the Level 1 Sale-a-Bration choices until the end of February. As well as the beautiful floral designs, there are also some generic colored prints in this pack, including Blackberry Bliss and Fresh Freesia patterns which are perfect for this project.
Beautiful Thistle - Front
This card features a Fresh Freesia card base with a Blackberry Bliss DSP mat on top. The larger square is a piece of Fresh Freesia Designer Series paper. The large Thistle has been stamped onto a square of basic white. It has been colored with Old Olive and Fresh Freesia Blends. A Blackberry Bliss Blend has been used to add some highlights to the thistle at the bottom of the petals and at the base of the thistle where it meets the leaves.
The texture image stamp has been stamped around the edge of the basic white in Fresh Freesia ink. A bow of white twine is stuck to the thistle with a glue dot.
The sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink. 'Thinking of You' is such a useful sentiment, whether someone is having a rough time, or you want to send a “just because” card. Stamp the thistle inside the card and on the envelope to complete your presentation. Enjoy!
