Sneak Peek: "Free with Three" Sweetest Memories


Today we have our final new release peek, GinaK's "Sweetest Memories", this month's free with Three" set! It is full of larger scale sweet greetings that make terrific scrapbook elements and titles, as well as tags or focal points for your cards. Greeting sets often make the best free sets because we stampers can always use more greetings! :)

My sample is super simple, I used Pure Luxury White and Chocolate Kiss with Basic Grey Indian Summer as a background. These layered flowers and vines in the pattern are just so dazzling I though it would be perfect with the "unforgettable" sentiment. The stitched and lined border around it makes it easy to crop even without Nestabilities. I adhered it with pop dots and added a few punched flourishes to embellish and create the illusion of the vines coming out of the patterned paper. Sometimes simple is best! (especially when you're sick, like me today, booo!) Off to rest for the big party, sorry I don't have more today, I'll be sharing lots more samples over the next few weeks with this set, some photo Christmas ornaments, gift packaging etc!


For even more ways to use this fabulous stamp set, please check tonight's featured Illustrator's blog:
