Freshly Made Sketches #189

Hey Everyone

It’s my turn to host this weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I’ve gone for layered shapes for my design – sorry Jen B, it has a circle on it!

I’ve been thinking I am well overdue for a man card. So for my card I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Open Sea and paired it with a sentiment from Petite Pairs.

The Card Concept #34

Hey Everyone

I’m back with a second post tonight. This time I’ve created a card for the new challenge at The Card Concept.  Here’s the inspiration pic:

I really love the colours in the picture and tried to match them. I’ve used Blushing Bride and Coastal Cabana.  To achieve my striped tag I inked the inside of my striped embossing folder and ran it through the big shot. I finger walked Dictionary in Blushing Bride over the background and inked up the flowers from Stippled Blossoms.  To finish off my card I used a sentiment from Petite Pairs.

Just Add Ink #260

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week I’ve designed the following sketch for you.

JAI260sketch

Not sure how it happens, but when it’s my turn to create a sketch or colour combo I always stumble when it comes time to put my cards together.  I tend to overthink things. Because I’ve been so focussed on swaps and gifts for Stampin’ Up!s Annual South Pacific Convention that I will be attending next week, I fell back on a safe colour combo – Black and White with pop of colour card – it’s what I always do when I’m in doubt. Here’s what I created:

We would love you to join in with this sketch challenge and because a lot of the team will be attending Convention, we will be leaving this challenge open for 2 weeks.  Head over to Just Add Ink and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team.

Just Add Ink #252

Hey Everyone

It’s Friday so that means we have a new challenge for you Just Add Ink.  This week Kim has created this fabulous sketch for us.  I really enjoy sketch challenges and I have to say I don’t even mind a tilted panel!

When I saw this sketch a man card came instantly to mind – not sure why, but it did.  I really am trying to challenge myself to make masculine cards as I don’t tend to make a lot of them.  Feminine ones are so much easier. I like a lot of details on my cards and I find I can add lots of details with a nautical themed card – here’s what I came up with:

Head over to Just Add Ink to get inspired by the Design Team.  We would love for you to create and link up your card while you’re there.
