Freshly Made Sketches #234

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch hostess is the fabulously talented Jennifer Timko.  Jennifer creates stunning creations that just leave me in awe! Head over to her blog and check them out.  Here’s her great sketch that I found so easy to work with:

I’ve created a underwater scene using a couple of Stampin’ Up! sets – By the Tide and By the Seashore. Monochromatic seemed to work well for my masculine card.  Here’s my card:

Stampin’ Royalty #181 & Deconstructed Sketch #106

Hey Everyone

I’m back for the third time today! I’ve been having a wonderful play in my craft room.

The design team at Stampin’ Royalty have an inspiration picture challenge this week that I found would work well for a masculine card.

I’ve combined the colours from the inspiration pic with this weeks sketch challenge at The Deconstructed Sketch.  Here’s Jen’s fabulous sketch:

I’ve left the bow off from Jen’s sketch but have replaced it with a starfish that I moved slightly to the left.  Because the inspiration pic was very nautical, I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Sail Away stamp set again.  You may not recognise a couple of the DSPs I’ve used.  I’m pretty happy with myself as I printed them off MDS.  The stripey one in the background is from a designer kit called Number One.  I’ve got no idea what the name of the burlap looking one is as when I went back to find the name of it, I couldn’t find it!  Oh well, it was one that was pre-loaded on MDS when I brought it. I was really chuffed with how they printed and know that if I have more time to look around MDS, I’ll be using it more often. Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #57

Hey Everyone

LeAnne is this weeks hostess at Freshly Made Sketches. In addition to our Guest Design gig for the month of October, LeAnne and I both got to design a sketch – my very first sketch ever is next week!  LeAnne designed this fabulous and very versatile sketch.

I’m getting low on man cards, so I thought I change it up from my usual florally feminine cards, and make a card for my stash.

Head over to the challenge and check out the beautiful cards the design team have created this week and if you have time, we’d love for you to join in.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
