Freshly Made Sketches #203

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch hostess this week is the very talented and creator of beautiful cards – Jen Mitchell.

When I first saw this sketch I knew straight away that I wanted to go with a shaker card – a shimmery shaker card. As I’m determined not to get behind with my Christmas cards, I used this weeks sketch to add to my stash.  The image I’ve used is a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Santa’s List and the baubles are from Jolly Bingo Bits (also retired).

As always our team has created wonderful inspiration for you. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and check them out. We would love for you to join us with our challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #165

Hey Everyone

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Cindy has designed this fabulous sketch.  I can’t wait to see how you interpret it!

I haven’t used this Santa from Santa’s List for any of my cards this year, so I decided to bring him out and see how he would look coloured with my Blendabilities (of course!).  Yep it’s another one that I can see myself colouring quite a bit. Don’t think I will ever part with him even though he’s retired!

Here’s my card:

Merry Monday Challenge #107

Hey Everyone

I recently decided that I needed to make a start on my Christmas card stash.  The Christmas Card Challenge I love to play along with is Merry Monday.  I was thrilled that I won the challenge with this card and then I was asked by the Design Team to Guest Design this week.  Here’s their sketch:

I just love this Santa’s face from Stampin’ Up!s Santa’s List – I think he works really well with the sketch.  As you can probably tell I’m addicted to Fresh Prints Designer Series Stack and love that these non-traditional Christmas papers work for a Christmas card too! A bit of faux washi, a mini clip and a sentiment from More Merry Messages and my card was done.  Here’s what I came up with:

The Design Team is sure to wow you with their cards – head over to Merry Monday and check them out. Hopefully you can win a challenge like me and have the opportunity to play along with this fabulous team.  Thanks for the opportunity ladies!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardabilities #88

Hey Everyone

I found this weeks Cardabilities sketch really interesting and thought it was a great opportunity for me to use Stampin’ Up!s Santa’s List again before I put it away until next year.

I love the little tab at the top of the main panel as it works so well with my sentiment and  I love all the vintagey background stamping.  This sketch also screamed seam binding bow at me – any chance for me to use a scrunchy seam binding bow and I’ll slap one on!  The designer series paper I’ve used is from a Stampin’ Up! pack called Etcetera. It’s not a Christmas pack, but I think the green stripe looks Christmasy. Here’s my card:

You’ve gotta love a Santa challenge!  I just received a Stampin’ Up! stamp called Santa’s List and I wanted to make use of it before Christmas is over.  I love the vintage feel to this Santa stamp, so I’ve gone with a vintagey card.  The layout for my card is from a previous Mojo Monday sketch.  Here’s what I came up with:
