Freshly Made Sketches #470

Hey Everyone

I really shouldn’t have a 5 day weekend – I lose all track of which day it is. I am a whole day late with this post…..

The newest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches brings us this fab sketch from Jennifer Brum – my sweet friend from Canada who doesn’t freeze when she goes outside in -37 degrees…..

I kept my card pretty simple if you don’t count the time it spent me to fussy cut the images out…. The flowers and the sentiment are from a stamp set called Fancy Phases. I love the font used in this set and I love colouring the pretty flowers – so this set was one I couldn’t go past.

The flowers and leaves have been coloured with a combination of Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Inks. I placed a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock under the main panel to tie the colours together. To give some texture to the background I used my Subtle 3D embossing folder and I couldn’t go past a Linen Thread bow.

Here’s my card:

The girls at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards that’ll no doubt inspire you. Head over to Freshly made sketches and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

CAS(E) this Sketch #387 & TGIF Challenge #279

Hey Everyone

I wasn’t done with my craft room after my earlier post. I headed back out there and looked around for challenges to keep creating. I didn’t think I had two more cards in me this afternoon, so I found two challenges and combined them for one card. The challenges I’ve entered are CAS(E) this Sketch and TGIF Challenge. Here are their challenge pics:

I love a bit of height to my cards.  In fact, it’s quite common for my cards to have four layers or even double-dimensionalise to get extra height. For the 3D element to this card, I created rolled roses – plus I think I’ve dimensionalised every layer as well.  The little flower and leaf images and sentiment are from the Fancy Phrases Stamp Set.  The images have been fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals.

The layout for this card is for the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.  I love me a good sketch and this one is just fabulous. The background of my card has been colour with the Light Petal Pink Blend. You can’t quite see the strip of DSP I’ve added to my card, but there is a strip of Peony Garden DSP under the sentiment and cluster of roses.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
