Freshly Made Sketches #428

Hey Everyone

Welcome to another Wednesday and another sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch has been designed by the super talented Amy O’Neill.  Amy’s cards are always lovely, full of fabulous colours and elegant.

It was time I inked up the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set.  This stamp set lets me continue my love of colouring with my Blends.  I gave the flowers some colour with the Light Purple Posy Blend and I outlined the petals with the Dark Highland Heather Blend.  I coloured the centre of the flower with the Dark Smoky Slate Blend.  The leaves have been coloured with Mint Macaron Blends.  The tiny flower buds have been given colour with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blend. The DSP I’ve used on my card is from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.

This card is different for me as I’ve used Gorgeous Grape on Gorgeous Grape Cardstock.  Normally I use a Whisper White Cardstock base, but thought it was time I mixed it up and tried a coloured card base. The layer of cardstock has been embossed with my Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder. To give some bling to my card, I coloured three Basic Rhinestones with my Dark Highland Heather Blend. To finish off my card, I added a Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding bow.

I love all the cards the Clean Team have created.  Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #418

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means a new sketch to play along with at Freshly Made Sketches.  This weeks sketch has been designed by the wonderfully talented Jacquie Southas.

I’ve yet to ink up one of my most wanted Sale-A-Bration stamp sets – Happy Birthday To You.  I stamped the image in Black Memento Ink and coloured the image with Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron & Petal Ink Blends.  The designer series paper I’ve used in the background is from the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper pack.  The birthday sentiment I’ve added to my card is also from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set.  Because I can’t do without embellishments, I added three Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels and a strip of the gorgeous Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  I am loving both of these and want to use them on every card.

We would love to see what you create with the sketch.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what the team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
