Freshly Made Sketches #336

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing tonight is for the latest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch has been designed by Jen Mitchell.  I am in love with Jen’s gorgeously clean lines and perfect choice of stamps and colours.

This card came together so easy! I totally love it when that happens.  I hadn’t opened up my pack of Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper yet (gasp!) and thought it would work well with Jen’s sketch.  I chose the chevron DSP from the pack and the back of another sheet to layer behind it.  I really love the kraft colour in these papers.

The stamp set I chose to use was one that I haven’t used in a while – the set is called Remarkable You.  These flowers have stems on them, but I chose to cut them off for my card as I couldn’t quite place the flowers like I wanted and work the stems in.  The leaves are also from this set.  As always, I have fussy cut them, because I like layers and also enjoy the fussy cutting time. My flower is lightly watercoloured with Peekaboo Peach Ink and my leaves are coloured with Old Olive Ink.

The sentiment I have used is from Four You.  Yes, it’s one of my favourites as I like the font and the size of the sentiment.  I’ve heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder on to Basic Black Cardstock.  Under my sentiment I have used some Black Bakers Twine and an off cut strip of the kraft cardstock punched with my Ticket Tear Border Punch.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have totally nailed this weeks sketch with their amazing cards.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and get ready to be inspired.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This card is just gorgeous Narelle! I love that foil paper! So elegant! Your flowers are so beautifully coloured!!! Fussy cutting queen!!!

  2. I love your watercoloring! And of course, your fussy cutting adds so much to the card. I had to laugh that we used the same stamp set and sketch this week, yet our cards look so different that I didn’t even realize we’d used the same stamp until now. And I like your card better!
