Freshly Made Sketches #230

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch hostess is the super talented Jen Brum.  Head over to her blog and take a look at her gorgeous cards.


I used this sketch to create a card for my niece who had a birthday last week.  The colours I’ve used are Whisper White, Basic Black and Calypso Coral.  To create the black thread I donned some gloves and inked up some Stmapin’ Up! Linen Thread by running the thread with my fingers over a Basic Black ink pad.  It’s a messy job if you don’t use gloves!


Our team has provided wonderful inspiration for you, so head over to Freshly Made Sketches and be ready to be inspired.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I just love this color combination! So fresh and striking! Love that big sentiment and your fun balloons.

  2. This is so gorgeous Narelle! I love those balloons and that amazing DSP! The Calypso Coral is such an fabulous accent colour! Oh and don’t forget those sequins! Love it!

  3. I love these colors and I love the different black and white DSP. And that’s some dedication to your craft that you dyed the twine black! Here’s to your inky fingers!

  4. Beautiful crisp and clean card! And your black thread is inspired! I have to admit though when you said you donned gloves, I had visions of full-length evening gloves coming out, a la Audrey Hepburn 🙂

  5. Hi Narelle,

    All your layering up, your different patterns and colors make your card full of height and interest. Always enjoy your cards!
