There’s a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for you to play along with. This week our sketch designer is the fabulously talented Cecile Ribon. Cecile creates gorgeous cards and amazingly cool sketches!
One of the perks of attending the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Event is that I got my hands on some of the products from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalogue. I think the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set is my favourite from the catalogue, but I’m easily swayed when there’s a stamp set with a flower in it…..
I stamped the individual blossoms from this set and coloured them with my Daffodil Delight Blends. I gave them a really quick colour and left the middle of the flowers without colour to make them stand out. To mimic the sketch, I added the fussy cut leaf from Very Versailles. This leaf has been stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink and the sentiment (also from Very Versailles) has been stamped in Black Memento Ink. For the background I daubed So Saffron Ink to soften the background and cradle the leaves.
The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards using Cecile’s sketch. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what they’ve created.
Thanks for stopping by.
I got home from work today and had the smallest time slot ever to have a play with one of my new stamp sets – Forever Blossoms! This stamp set will be available for demonstrators to preorder from 3rd December. Customers will be able to get their hands on this set and all of the other gorgeous products from the Stampin’ Up! January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue from 3rd January.
To create my card, I stamped my image in Black Memento Ink and used my Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate Blends to colour the blossoms. The leaves have been given colour with my Mint Macaron Blends. The sentiment that I have used on my card is also from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set.
I added a bit of background stamping with the script stamp from Very Versailles in Crumb Cake Ink. I then added a Pool Party Carstock circle and a strip of Petal Pink Cardstock to tie all the colours together. As I always seem to do, I finished off my card with a trio of Noble Peacock Rhinestones. If I had more time, I would have tizzy’d this card more, but I think it’s ok for a rushed card.

We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink for you. This week our challenge is a colour challenge. Take a look at the pretty colours we have for you to play along with:
Blackberry Bliss is a colour I haven’t used in ages! This is why I love colour challenges, they make me try different combinations that I wouldn’t normally put together.
I also tried my hand with one of my Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and some Shimmery White Embossing Paste. I created the background of my card using these products. Once I set it with my Heat Tool, I added my layers of:
- Blackberry Bliss stamped frame from Very Versailles
- Fussy cut Mossy Meadow leaves from Very Versailles
- Fussy cut Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose flowers from First Frost
- Black Memento sentiment from Very Versailles
And my card was done!
I am loving every one of the cards the design team at Just Add Ink have created. Pop over to the challenge and check them out. We’d love it if you could play along with us
