Freshly Made Sketches #284

Hey Everyone

Oh I love a great sketch! This weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches has been designed by the talented cardmaker and talented sketch maker Karren Johnson.

The pretty colour combination I have used on my card is – Soft Sky, Mossy Meadow & Sweet Sugarplum.  A combo I have never used before, but found I really love these colours together.  The flowers I have used are from Stampin’ Up!s Special reason and I have paired them with the flower and leave dies from Stylish Stems Framelit Dies.  I stamped the sentiment and frame around the sentiment die in Basic Black ink so it would stand out a bit more – it is also from Special Reason.

Here’s my card:

Retro Sketches #137 & Colour Me Creative Challenge #43

Hey Everyone

Time for another Christmas card for my stash. With the rate I’m going I may actually end up with enough cards this year!  This time I’ve used colours from this weeks colour combo at Colour Me Creative Challenge – colours that I don’t see very often for Christmas, but I think it works quite well.  I’ve combined these colours with the sketch from Retro Sketches.

Merry Monday Challenge #65

Hey Everyone

It’s Monday so that means another sketch at Merry Monday.

So I have a confession – I’ve strayed from Lesley’s sketch this week.  I didn’t take my computer to my craft room when I made my card – I decided to go from memory and obviously my memory sucks as I forgot to add the strip down the side.  As I’d had a busy weekend and didn’t make my card until the last minute I couldn’t change my card – sorry Lesley! I promise to get it right next week!

Here’s my card:

Merry Monday Challenge #49

Hey Everyone

Following on from our non-traditional colour challenge last week, I’ve decided to use non-traditional papers for my Merry Monday card this week.  This is because I’m trying to use up as much of my DSP that I can.  I have so much that if I didn’t buy any for the next 3 years, I still think I’d have enough to last! Does everyone else have a lot sitting around collecting dust like I do?

Lesley has given us this fabulous sketch for our cards this week:

I’ve done my Christmas cards for the year, so I’m making a head start on next years cards. I’ve combined a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Tree Trimmings with Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP for this one. Here’s my card:
