Freshly Made Sketches #210

Hey Everyone

Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week Cindy Lovell is our hostess. Cindy creates the most gorgeous cards. I would love to see her craft room along with my stamping friend from NZ, Karren Johnson, as I don’t think I see them use the same set twice!

I am in love with stars at the moment and I love using this star stamp from a Stampin’ Up! Christmas set called Bright and Beautiful.  I think it works well for non-Christmas cards too. I dragged out my crimper to give the black star some texture and then I added some star sequins.  The sentiment is from Celebrate Today.  Here’s my card:

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge for you at Just Add Ink.  This week is inspiration picture week. I can’t wait to see what you create with these great colours.

If I’m ever stuck with how I’m going to combine colours, I always look for a sketch to guide me. I found this fab sketch over at The Paper Players.

Initially I was going to create some rosette type decorations to try and match the decorations in the inspiration pic but soon realised I have no clue how to make them, so I scrapped that idea and went with balloons from Stampin’ Up!s Celebrate Today.  Here’s my card:

I don’t make a lot of man cards but now this is my second one in a row. Two in a row means I’m on a man card roll I think! I also have to say how much I love Tip Top Taupe – it’s my new favourite colour!
