Freshly Made Sketches: Your Special Day

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum and here’s what I did with it!

FMS Special Day

I am a huge fan of the cards many people are making with black and white images and color around it so that's what I did!  Using this particular image is kind of funny though.  I specifically bought this stamp set because it has solid images to color the flowers - so what do I do?  I leave it black and white!  It will be fun to add color and I will do that soon.  But the pop of pink, mango and lime green - particularly on kraft seemed like all the color this card needed.  

I hope to see you play along with us this week!

Stamps: Avery Elle Simple Sentiments, Pinkfresh Believe in Yourself
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Lemon Lime Twist
Other: Stampin' Up Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, Studio Katia Arctic Breeze Pearls (colored with Copics)


  1. Though I didn't know this style is a trend, I have noticed that I have been drawn to this style of cards in the FMS gallery lately. I love how you've used it here! These colors make my heart sing.

  2. Love the way you've used the strips of color, this is pretty Kim!

  3. I'm a fan too! Especially the way you've used this technique with such fresh colors and a fun sentiment. Pearls add the perfect touch!

  4. Loving this new trend as well! Love the b/w flowers against the color!

  5. I feel like I'm always last to the trend party!!! This is amazing and I love the black and white image on the colour! I need to try this!!! The flowers are so beautiful!

  6. Really love the way you did the diagonal strips - with the one sentiment out. Fab colors. I love the B/W.

  7. Another amazing card, Kim! I love this all black and white stamp against the colorful background. This is so eye catching.
