A Simply Sweet Card for Fresh Brewed Designs!

Welcome back my crafty peeps for another Fresh Brewed Designs GDT post! I am having so much being the September Guest Designer & sharing some sweet stamps from the FBD Store with you, too. This sweet stamp is called Marina One of a Kinda and you can grab one of your very own RIGHT HERE! I though this was the perfect image for a simple card, and I was able to use all scraps to create it. I love using up my leftover stash, don't you?! And, here is a tip for you today - if you have clear dew drops/skittles you can use a Sharpie to color them! Just color the back/bottom side of the dew drop & adhere it too your projects. Super simple & economical too!

Ink - Staz On
Coloring - Prisma Markers, Prisma Pencil, Sharpie
Cardstock - Bazzill
Patterned Paper - Cosmo Cricket (upcycle collection)
Distress Ink - Tim Holtz (walnut stain)
Stickles - Ranger
Adhesives - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Stash - Ribbon, Thread, Dew Drops, Button

If you haven't already, hop on over to the FDB Challenge Blog for some great inspiration & to play along for a fun prize. This week's challenge is Something New, plus there is always a month long challenge you can enter too. Also make sure to stop by the FBD Store for some fun rubber & digi stamps you are sure to love! I'll be back soon to share some scrappy fun with ya...until then, Happy Craftin'!
