It's time for another Friday Flashback! This week's set is Sage Advice, which is a stamp set that I really, really loved because it's got such neat quotes in it. However, I haven't made tons and tons of cards with it...and this is why I do Friday Flashbacks, to reacquaint myself with my old favorites :)
So first up, let's see what I've got from the archives.
This card also uses Spring Garden and Print Pattern, which I think is my most-used background stamp ever. I'm betting this was a combo SCS sketch/color challenge but I kinda like it.
This quote I think is why I like this stamp set so much--I'm a Beatles fan. This card was for a VSN I think? The quilt thing was tough to pull off, trying to keep all the squares evenly spaced and then cut off the partial pieces. I have new respect for people that do tile floors on the diagonal.
I made this card not that long ago and to be honest, it doesn't do anything for me. That is a wonderful quote from Anne Frank though...and Lee and I just booked a weekend trip to Amsterdam later this spring to see the tulips.
Here's my new card with the one remaining quote stamp that I hadn't used yet:
I do kinda like this one, what do you think? And you can see that my willpower crumbled, I bought Hearts a Flutter and the matching dies. Oops. Better hurry up and use them this week since Valentine's Day is next Thursday!
This card is a combo challenge, the layout is based on Freshly Made Sketches #72:
And the color combo is from Pals Paper Arts (and the More Amore DSP):
I still don't care for Primrose Petals with Real Red, but I seem to be in the minority :) I did use both those colors though and I did like how the card turned out, so maybe they don't clash as much as I think.
Thanks for joining me for this Friday Flashback!
