Freshly Made Sketches #448

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch has been designed by the wonderfully talented Jennifer Brum. Her creations are always just stunning and super clean.

Stampin’ Up! have gorgeous packs of designer series papers that have wonderful images made for fussy cutting.  These perfectly coloured leaves are from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper pack. The strip of DSP I’ve added behind these leaves is also from this pack.

The sentiment I chose to add is from the matching stamp set called Forever Fern Stamp Set. I’ve got a friend in mind for this card who makes me smile every day at work. I coloured the background with the Light Soft Sea Foam Blend and added some ink splatters in Garden Green Ink from the Forever Fern Stamp Set.

I then added some gems from the Flowers For Every Season Gems to tie in with my greenery.  Some Braided Linen Trim was added under the sentiment to match the Sahara Sand Cardstock base.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome cards using this weeks sketch.  Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Global Design Project #249

Hey Everyone

There’s a new challenge at the Global Design Project.  This combination of colours is super pretty and I couldn’t resist playing along.

I started off with choosing a stamp set – Forever Fern Stamp Set was my set of choice.  I wanted to see if the images from this set worked with the challenge colours and I think they do!

The designer series paper I’ve used in the background is from the Peony Garden DSP pack.  I’ve roughed the edges of this piece, giving it a bit of a tear here and there.  I then took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and daubed the background with Pool Party Ink. The script stamp I’ve added to this piece of cardstock is from the Very Versailles Stamp Set and is stamped in Petal Pink Ink.  I’ve really torn and roughed up the edges on this piece.

I cracked open my Tasteful Labels Dies and die cut two stitched dies in Misty Moonlight and Petal Pink Cardstock. The sentiment I’ve used is from the Forever Fern Stamp Set. I’ve stamped this with Misty Moonlight Ink and it has also been die cut with one of the dies.

A strip of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was added as well as a bow for that vintage-y feel. Elegant Faceted Gems finished off my card – as always three were added.

Thanks for stopping by.
