Hey Everyone

We have a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  The super talented and creator of the most amazing backgrounds, Karren Johnson has designed this cool sketch:

I love everything about this sketch.  I had lots of plans to create a masculine card, but somehow I’ve ended up with another floral card.  Oh well – I find that I need more feminine floral cards anyway.

Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #344

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week the challenge is to create a project using the following inspiration pic – a pic that was suggested by Kim.

I’ve taken inspiration from the pool and used Pool Party as the main colour on my card.  I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted and have given my Watercolor Pencils another run.

Here’s my card:

I’ve been waiting for Stampin’ Up’s Watercolor Pencils and they finally arrived.  I love the detail in this flower from Penned and Painted, and even though it comes with it’s own water-colour type stamp, I decided to play with my new pencils.  And I LOVE them – they are so easy to use!  The sentiment I’ve used is from Big on Birthdays and the DSP I’ve used is Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have almost used a whole pack of this DSP already!

Here’s my card:

Oh I love this sketch! I made my card in no time! It helped that I already had these flowers cuts out that I had discarded from another project.

Freshly Made Sketches #261

Hey Everyone

I’ve scheduled this post as I am attending Stampin’ Up!s 2016 Live On-Stage Event in Brisbane! Events like these are a great way to catch up with all the lovely friends I have made on-line.  It’s also a good opportunity to see and get my hands on products that will be released in upcoming catalogues.

 

Now on to my card! I created this card for our newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  The super talented Cindy Hall is our sketch designer – here’s her cool sketch:

You all know how much I love flower stamp sets. I’ve just found a new one to play with – it’s called Painted and Penned. I’ve used Floral Boutique DSP on my card again and my sentiment is from Birthday Blossoms.  Here’s my card:
