Freshly Made Sketches #333

Hey Everyone

It’s my turn to be sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  We would love it if you could play along with our challenge.

You know I love circles, so of course of I had to put them on my sketch:

I caught up with my niece on Christmas day and she told me her exciting news that I was going to be a Great Aunt again! Or should I say she’s going to be a first time mum?  I’d like to think it was about me too, but it really is all about her….. Her baby is due in May and she’s going to have a little boy.  I chose this teepee stamp from Stampin’ Up!s Little One to use for her baby card and the sentiment I’ve used is from Sunshine Wishes.  I’m hoping she likes it!

Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what the team have created – as always you know they’re going to be creative cards!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Freshly Made Sketches #298

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our sketch has been designed by the uber talented Linda Callhan.  Her sketches are fabulous and her cards are even more so!

Here’s her sketch:

Looking through my stash of cards, I realised I don’t have many baby cards.  I decided to ink up Stampin’ Up!s Little One for my card today. How cute is this sweet little teepee? I lightly watercoloured the teepee with Smoky Slate Ink and fussy cut it as well as the little bunny and cushion – they also received a light watercolour with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake Ink.  Once I stuck these images to my card I felt the top was a little bare so to finish off the scene I cut some clouds with my Up & Away Thinlits Dies.

The designer series paper I’ve used is from Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  Soft Sky and the pattern in this paper are perfect for baby cards. I’ve teamed the DSP with Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock.

Here’s the card I created:

As always the team have nailed the sketch. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the wonderful inspiration the team has provided.

Thanks for stopping by.
