Freshly Made Sketches #307

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch designer this week is wonderfully talented and creator of gorgeous clean cards – Jennifer Timko.

Take a look at her great sketch:

I’m currently on holidays, and even though I thought I packed half of my craft room, it wasn’t until I sat down to make this card that I realised just how much I left at home….. This card took me a little longer to create as I kept ducking outside to enjoy the sunshine on our newly renovated deck at our beach house.

I’ve got a couple of Christmas cards coming up soon, so I decided to create a flowery birthday card for this weeks challenge.  I stamped the daisy from Daisy Delight in Berry Burst on to Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  The centre of my daisy was stamped with Old Olive Ink on to Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The designer series paper I’ve used in the background is from Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper – as I was originally going to go with a Christmas card for this challenge.  I love that these Christmas papers are versatile and can be used for other cards.

The leaves and little black stems I’ve created are cut my Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies and my sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

Here’s my card:

The team have created gorgeous cards to inspire you, so head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look.  We would love it if you could join us in this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Paper Players #354

Hey Everyone

Do you ever get stuck on where to start with a card?  Whenever I do, I head to my favourite sketch or colour challenges and join in.  The card I made today was for the sketch challenge at The Paper Players.

Here’s Jaydee’s great sketch:

I received lots of new Stampin’ Up! goodies a couple of weeks ago and love that when I’m sitting in my craft room, I have heaps of new products to choose from.  It’s hard to know where to start!

The flowers I’ve used on my card are stamped with Oh So Eclectic stamp set and then I’ve used the coordinating dies – Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I didn’t realise until I opened the set that there are so many useful dies in there!  The sentiment I’ve used is from Big on Birthdays – it’s kind of my go-to sentiment at the moment.

The strip of designer series paper in the background is Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack.  There are so many pretty designs in this pack.

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
