Freshly Made Sketches #162 & SU Only Challenge #109

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday again so that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our fabulous sketch has been designed by the lovely Kim.

I’ve dragged out an old Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Because I Care.  This card started with a me wanting to use a bee so I searched for a flower stamp that I could set my bee on. My little bee is from another retired Stampin’ Up! set – Nature Walk – and is coloured with blendabilities.  I’m also entering my card into the SU Challenge where the challenge is to create a Thank You/Thanksgiving card.

We’d love for you to join us this week with our challenge.  Head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by.

Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #36

Hey Everyone

The Design Team at Inspired by Stamping have given us this great sketch to create our projects this week:

I’ve flipped the sketch on it’s side as it worked better for my layout.  The pink designer series paper that I’ve used is from a Stampin’ Up! one called Fan Fair and the newsprint paper is from a retired Stampin’ Up! one called Newsprint (I guess that was appropriately named!). I’m really liking the colour combo – Crumb Cake (or Kraft my non-Stampin’ Up! followers), Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla,  so this is what I’ve gone with.

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Newsprint DSP (retired), Fan Fair DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake Marker, Pink Pirouette Marker, Crumb Cake Ink
Stamp Sets: Because I Care (retired), Occasional Quotes (retired), French Foliage
Other Products: Window Framelits, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, Basic Pearls, Button, Hemp Twine (retired)

Cheers

Just Add Ink 69 – Fussy Cutting

Hi Everyone

My card today is for the challenge at Just Add Ink – Just Add Fussy Cutting.  This is the second time I’ve used this Hostess Stamp Set Because I Care – my first time was only on the weekend at a workshop.

For this card I’ve stamped the hydrangea straight onto the card and then stamped it again in River Rock and Early Espresso, cut around it, added dimensionals and raised it up.  I’ve also stamped the bird from Elements of Style, added shimmer to it before cutting it out, added dimensionals and stuck it to hover over the flower.  I also recently purchased French Foliage and was hanging to use it.  I decided a bit of background stamping with this set would finish off the card.

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso (even though it looks black!), Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, River Rock, Sahara Sand
Stamp Sets: Because I Care, French Foliage, Elements of Style, Short & Sweet
Other Products: Early Espresso Striped Grosgain Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch

See ya
