Retro Fresh and Timeless Talk

I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE the Retro Fresh DSP from Stampin' Up! I have found that I have a hard time deciding on which sides of the paper to use. I used the sketch this week from Freshly Made Sketches #133 and added some Retro Fresh DSP... this is what I came up with.

To give this card a "clean" look I decided to feature this great DSP and just a little stamping. It was very hard for me not to dry emboss the half circle but I thought the DSP was more than enough pattern for this card. This was the first time I had used the stamp set, Timeless Talk. I am not sure why it has taken me so long to use but I am sure I will be using it often now that it has seen some ink! :) I also covered a button using some washi tape. Cindy Beach had a wonderful tutorial on her site with some great ideas for washi tape. Check it out HERE!
As I stated earlier I loved this DSP but I also loved this sketch so I decided to make another card! This was the first time I had used the Perfect Blend stamp set too!

Both of these cards came together very quick. I was fun to show how different card can appear even though you are using much of the same products. Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. I like how you used all of that DSP! It is one of my favorites too. I can't believe you haven't used either one of those stamp sets yet! lol They both look great with that DSP. At least neither stamp set is retiring. Woo hoo!

  2. Both of these cards turned out so cute! Way to use those new stamps! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  3. These are both fantastic! Super use of that DSP and those stamps (yep…I have some that need some ink too). Glad you joined us this week at FMS!
