We have a new sketch for you to play along with at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch has been designed by the wonderfully talented Judy Rozema. Take a look at her fabulous sketch:
When you want a quick and easy Christmas card, find a stamp set with matching dies. The stamp set and dies I’ve used are from the Forever Fern Bundle. I stamped the leaves in Basic Gray Ink and used the matching die to cut them out. I had the bow already coloured up sitting on my desk so all I had to do was stamp a sentiment and layer them over a Gold Hoop Embellishment. The bow and sentiment are from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. I inked up the background with the ink splatters stamp from the Forever Fern Stamp and Smoky Slate Ink.
To give the card base some texture, I took the piece of Whisper White Cardstock and my Subtle 3D embossing folder and ran it through my cutting machine.
Here’s my card:
The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created amazing cards using the sketch. Head over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.
Had a chance to play along with the latest colour challenge at Colour Throwdown Challenge today. This combination is a really pretty combo so I knew I had to create something this week.
The Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Warm & Toasty, has the cutest festive images as well as fabulous sentiments. I inked up the reindeer and lightly coloured it with my Crumb Cake Blends. I then took my Highland Heather Blends and coloured the bow tie.
The trees that I’ve added to my card are cut with the Pine Wood Dies and Mossy Meadow Cardstock. The DSP I used on my card is woodsy with it’s woodgrain pattern and I felt it fitted with my tree die cuts and reindeer. Highland Heather Cardstock was added and three Champagne Basic Rhinestones finished off my card.
This is my second post tonight! The card I’ve created this time is for the newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Our cool sketch has been designed by one of my favourite card makers Amy O’Neill. Amy’s cards are wonderfully put together and she combines THE best colours.
Yep! It’s time for another Christmas card. Think I may just get there with a couple of these ones ready to stick together. For this card, I cut a couple of isosceles (?) triangles to create some Christmas trees. I cut these on my Stampin’ Trimmer. They’re made from Mossy Meadow spotted DSP. I layered them at different heights on my Stitched Oval that was cut on my Bigshot with my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
I cut two Whisper White Snowflakes with my Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and layered them on each side of my triangle trees. I then cut some Whisper White Perfect Pines Thinlits Dies to layer under the right side of the oval to match the sketch. There was a Pear Pizzazz sprig sitting on my desk, so I added this too just because I could.
The sentiment I’ve stamped on my Pretty Label Punch is one of my favourite Christmas sentiments. It’s from a set called Peaceful Noel. I added a touch of Soft Sea Foam watercolouring in the background under all the layers, but it hasn’t showed up really well.
The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome cards with Amy’s sketch. Click here to take you to the challenge and take a look the cards they’ve created.
