Friday Flashback: Well Scripted

Happy Friday, peeps!  It's time for this week's Friday Flashback, and the randomly selected retired stamp set du jour is Well Scripted, a collection of sentiment stamps from back in 2010.  I'm a wee bit embarrassed this Flashback isn't longer than it is, but let's get to it anyway.

Also features Bloomin' Beautiful
Believe it or not, I made this card when I did a Friday Flashback on my other blog, before I started this stamps/scrapbook blog.  I do love that flower from Bloomin' Beautiful, but the Well Scripted sentiment is a mite hard to see.

Also features My Matryoshka & French Filigree

Coincidentally I used the same birthday stamp on this card, and it's the end of the Flashback part of today's proceedings.  I made a bunch of these for a swap back in the day.  Don't know why I didn't use this set more often, I do like the fonts and it's got a nice collection of sentiments.

Lucky for me, I decided (without checking the archives first) to use a NON-birthday stamp for today's new creation:


Yay Mother's Day card!  I owe the color combination to the Color Throwdown:


It's funny that I used Pale Plum and Perfect Plum on today's card, like I did on the first card on this post.  I almost went with Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac instead, but chose the plums specifically because I don't use them very often and then they show up twice in the Friday Flashback.  Anyway, I added Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, and it needed just a teensy bit of So Saffron to make the card work.

The layout is courtesy of Freshly Made Sketches:



I stamped my sentiment banner first and placed it on the card front so I could kind of see where I would want my roses to go.  And I didn't try to fill up the entire Whisper White panel, but somehow I covered up most of the white bits with the other layers.

Anyway, that's it for me this week.  Have a great weekend and cheers, peeps!

I DO love that color combo. Nice cards, Chris. And I do like the first one especially (color, again!) Happy Friday the 13th. Hope your weekend is fantastic.

Lovely set of cards. Especially love the last one with the layered flowers. The shades are so pretty. The little Matryoshka figures are so sweet. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.

Great cards! Purple is my favorite color, but I don't tend to use it that much in my crafting. I'm trying to change that. Love the look back at some older sets. I have that flower from the first card and need to go find it! :) Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Beautiful Mother's Day card! I'd forgotten about the Roses in Winter set! The roses look lovely in purple. Thanks for joining us at the Color Throwdown!
