Stampin' Up! Springtime Foils for FMS 330

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 330

It's time for a new challenge over at  Freshly Made Sketches. I love the way the sketch has the sentiment tucked under the paper. It's not something I do very often but really need to start doing it on more of my cards. 

For this challenge, I really wanted to use the gorgeous Springtime Foil Speciality Designer Series paper (DSP)   It was part of the second release of Sale-A-Bration 2018 so I didn't get it in time to use at my March classes and I really wanted everyone to see the beauty and versatility of this paper.
  There are four different designs and you get three sheets of each. The copper and gold foil really make it shine. I love the way it can be colored. You can use markers, watercolors or brayer ink on the sheets.
I used the Stampin' Blends Alcohol ink markers to color several of the images and then I fussy cut them out. I used dimensionals to pop the largest of the flowers up.
I used one of the embossing folders from the  Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to emboss the strip of So Saffron cardstock.
I decided to use the Ticket Tear Border Punch to make a strip with the Copper Foil Speciality Paper.

For the sentiment, I used Old Olive Classic Stampin' Ink and I used the framelits to cut it. I stamped my sentiment toward the bottom of the paper so I didn't have to cut a whole square. No reason to waste cardstock when only a bit of it would be showing.

Thank You for Stopping by
