Happy Friday and welcome to the Friday Flashback! In case you're new here, a.) welcome to Snapdragon Stamps! and b.) every Friday I choose the name of a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set from my stash, dig up all my old projects made with it, and share a new creation. This week's Friday Flashback is woefully short...the featured stamp set, Rue des Fleurs, is one that I like a lot but haven't used much at all. So let's get started!
Yep, that's the whole Flashback. After I'd stuck everything down, I *really* wished that I had sponged the edges of the patterned paper triptych to make them feel more of a piece with the focal point. Coincidentally, my new card for today has somewhat similar colors:
The other images in the set include a trumpet, a corset with flowers, and a fountain pen, and while I like them I haven't figured out how to use them. Sometimes that happens, I get a stamp set that I like but just can't think what to do with it. Oh well. Anyway, today's card layout is brought to you by Freshly Made Sketches:
I had to make mine landscape rather than portrait since the umbrella image is so big. I used the Pals Paper Arts color challenge for my palette:
I used some Soft Suede in there too since it's a neutral and a Dynamic Duo with Early Espresso.
That's it for me this week, I've got to go get in the garage and start putting prices on items for the garage sale tomorrow. Cheers, peeps!
