Freshly Made Sketches #388

Hey Everyone

We have a new sketch up at Freshly Made Sketches for you to try.  This week our sketch hostess is Karren Johnson, our Queen of Backgrounds and all things Distress Inks.

I haven’t inked up Abstract Impressions for a while, so I was determined to use it on my card today.  I’ve used two of the three-step flower stamp for my card.  They’ve been stamped in Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Inks.  I fussy cut them out and layered them with some leaves cut with my Floral Romance Thinlits Dies. I also added the doily-like die cut from Floral Romance Thinlits Dies under my flower arrangement.

The Bermuda Bay Cardstock background piece has been embossed with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder. and is matted with Whisper White Cardstock and Rose Gold Foil Cardstock.

Here’s my card:

The Clean Team have created wonderful and varied cards using this weeks sketch.  Pop over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

CAS(E) this Sketch #278

Hey Everyone

I managed to fit in a card just for fun on the weekend, but only just got a chance to photograph it and post it here.  The fabulous sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch gave me a chance to ink up the roses from Stampin’ Up!s Abstract Impressions.

My roses are stamped with Blushing Bride and Berry Burst Inks.  I fussy cut them out and then added some leaves that I had sitting on my desk cut with my Flourish Thinlits Dies.  For the background I stamped the watercolour wash stamp from Love What You Do in Blushing Bride.  I then added some ink splashes with the stamp from Timeless Textures.  I stamped these in Mossy Meadow.

The sentiment I’ve used is from also from Abstract Impressions.  I hadn’t actually read this sentiment until I made this card, but when I did, it totally made me smile.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
