Freshly Made Sketches #342

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday so that means we have a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch this week has been designed by the amazing Linda Callahan who is one of the loveliest and most creative card makers around.

My card features products from All That You Are Stamp Set, Floral Romance Speciality Designer Series Paper and what I know is going to be some of my favourite die set – Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies.

The flowers from All That You Are were given a light watercolour colour with Fresh Fig Ink.  The leaves I added to my flowers were cut with Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  I also added a little Fresh Fig Cardstock leaf.  The Whisper White doily type diecut is also Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies.  I then added some Old Olive Linen Thread to tie all the colours together.  I used my White Gel Pen to add some detail to the centre of the flowers and lastly stamped a sentiment from All That You Are Stamp Set.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created fabulous cards with Linda’s sketch. Head over to the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Freshly Made Sketches #369

Hey Everyone

This is my first post after my little break for the Christmas and New Year period.  I hope you’ve all had an amazing festive season and didn’t overindulge like I did…..I do it every year – I just can’t help myself. I’m pretty sure it’s the law to put on weight over those 10 days or so 😉

We have one fantastic sketch for you to try this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch designer is Amy O’Neill.  You all know Amy is one super talented card maker right?

Oh I love new catalogue time. The 2019 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue is only days away.  As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, we are spoiled and get to order from this catalogue earlier than the release date.  One of the sets I knew I wanted when I received my catalogue in November was All That You Are.  This set, with it’s pretty flowers and leaves, were made for colouring.

My flower is watercoloured in Highland Heather Ink and the shadows and definition lines were drawn with my Basic Gray Watercolor Pencil.  The leaves are watercoloured with Pear Pizzazz Ink and the definition lines were drawn with my Old Olive Watercolor Pencil.

I’m going to call it now – the sentiment I have used on my card is from All That You Are Stamp Set also – it will be my favourite sentiment EVER! The font and the size of the letters are perfect for most of the circle and label punches I own.  As I don’t own an Highland Heather ribbon, I made my own by running my Whisper White Flax Ribbon over the Highland Heather Ink pad with my fingers.  I made sure I used gloves as my fingers get very inky.  I know this because the first time I tried this with ribbon, I had stained fingers for a day.  I then added two strips of cardstock I had sitting on my unused pile.  These are Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam Cardstocks.

 

We have some exciting news over at Freshly Made Sketches.  We have new Design Team members – so pop over to read the announcement.  While you’re there, we would love it if you could play along with this weeks sketch.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
