Freshly Made Sketches #407

Hey Everyone

Oh my goodness, I am one whole day late in posting this!  I think as the year has gone by, so has my memory!

We have a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our fabulous sketch has been designed by the super talented Lee Ann Barrett.

The Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set got a work out for Lee Ann’s sketch.  So did my blends! I can’t believe it took me a few months to jump on the blends train – why did it take me so long? They’re so easy to use and they colour like a dream. The holly images are also from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set.  They’ve also been coloured with my blends. I’ve gone with a non traditional Christmas colour scheme on this card – Night of Navy in the background DSP from Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and Cherry Cobbler in the cardstock and bauble. I really like this Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler combo.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created the most gorgeous cards with this sketch.  Head over to the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Just Add Ink #478

Hey Everyone

Welcome to our newest challenge at Just Add Ink.  Our challenge this week is for you is to:

I didn’t have to think very long about what I was going to create for this challenge. Holly starts with “H”, so I filled my card  with tons of it!

The holly on my card has come from this gorgeous piece of DSP from Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Additionally I stamped the holly image from Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set.  The holly has coloured with Cherry Cobbler and Mint Macaron Blends.  The sentiment I’ve used on my card is also the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set.  It’s also got the word holly in it.  My card is “H” overloaded!

The team at Just Add Ink have created wonderful cards that will inspire you.  Head over to Just Add Ink and see what they’re created.  We would love it if you could join us with this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Gleaming Card

Hey Everyone

Christmas cards are flowing out of my craft room at the moment. It’s all because of the fabulous new products from the Holiday Catalogue on my desk.  I’m planning my next class event and designed this card featuring the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set.

The baubles have been given colour with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede Blends.  The small bauble was given colour with Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.  The holly was coloured with Cherry Cobbler and Mint Macaron Blends.  I had a strip of Gold Foil sitting on my desk and I added this strip under the baubles to tie in with the gold ink.  The background Whisper White Cardstock was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  I love things in trios, so I added three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish off my card.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #402

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means we have a new sketch challenge for you to play along with at Freshly Made Sketches. My super creative friend, Karren Johnson, has created the following sketch – which is a pretty cool one.

I am on a mission, a Christmas card mission.  My festive card stash has grown because of all the new toys I received recently from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

As soon as I saw Karren’s sketch, I thought these baubles and holly images from Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set would work perfectly.  I gave the baubles some colour with Cherry Cobbler Blends and Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.  For the Golden Glitz Ink, I used an old Aqua Painter with no water in it and applied the colour to the bauble.  I really like the sparkle it brings to the bauble.  The holly was given colour with my Cherry Cobbler and Mint Macaron Blends.

For the background I used my new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder to give texture to my Whisper White Cardstock.  I’ve actually used the debossed side of the cardstock because I liked the look of the ridges with my baubles.

I added a strip of DSP from Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and a strip of Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon.  After adding a strip of Garden Green Cardstock and the sentiment from Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set, I finished off my card with three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards using this weeks sketch, head over to the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.
