Freshly Made Sketches #272

Hey Everyone

So it seems my bad week from last week has carried on to this week.  I completely forgot to schedule this post for Wednesday!  I’m going to blame being on holidays as I have totally lost track of days.

This weeks cool sketch at Freshly Made Sketches has been designed by the very talented Cecile Ribon!

I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Balloon Adventures for my card.  It gave me another chance to use my new Watercolor Pencils.  Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #343 Pop Up or Interactive Blog Hop

Hey Everyone

Welcome to our first challenge of 2017 at Just Add Ink.  We’re starting off 2017 with a blog hop.  Our challenge for you is to:

Just Add Pop Up or Interactive

This is probably the first pop up card I’ve made in over a year.  Challenges like this are great for me, they really get me creating out of my comfort zone.  This card with it’s neutral colours could be for either a male or female, but I probably had a man in mind when I made it.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Balloon Adventures.  Don’t you love this big sentiment?  I am loving the size of this sentiment and I love it combined with these hot air balloons.

I’ve used Balloon Pop Up Thinlits Die for the centre of my card.  Instead of the balloons that the thinlits cut, I added hot air balloons and clouds from Stampin’ Up!s Lift Me Up. I had to trim down the balloons the thinlit cut just a tad so you wouldn’t see the outline behind my hot air balloon. I had some pieces of Urban Underground DSP sitting on my desk when I made this card, so after trimming them to fit, I added them to my card.

Just Add Ink #337

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge for you at Just Add Ink. Our challenge for you is to:

Just Choose Two –

Doily or Die Cut or Designer Designer Paper

This is going to be an easy one to play along with!  I’ve chosen two patterns of designer series papers from Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  I’m in love with these papers!  They will be available from the new Occasions Catalogue in January.  I’ve paired the papers with a stamp set that will also be available next year called Balloon Adventures. This stamp set coordinates with Balloon Pop Up Thinlits.  From these thinlits I’ve used the loopy present topping die and cut two of them to create a doily effect.

Here’s my card:
