Freshly Made Sketches #323

Hey Everyone

There’s a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch is a fabulous one and has been designed by Karren Johnson – our super creative Kiwi friend who makes stunning cards with amazing background and stunning details.  I’m going to make a trip over the seas in-between our countries and touch all the stuff in her craft room one day – she just doesn’t know it yet!

This card started as baby card and somehow ended up as a wedding card.  Funny how that happens!  The designer series paper strips I’ve used are from Stampin’ Up!s Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  My white leaves and gold flowers are cut on my big shot with Flourish Thinlits Dies.  The sentiment is one that I haven’t used on any of my cards yet – so I wanted to give it some ink today.  This great sentiment is from Better Together.

Here’s my card:

The team will inspire you with their gorgeous cards. Make sure you head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Freshly Made Sketches #308

Hey Everyone

Holidays are great, but not so great when you come home and unpack your craft stuff and realise your husband has packed his tool box on your recently made card for this weeks sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches……  My card was crushed and I realised I needed a re-do at the last minute last night to photograph and upload to our challenge blog.  I will need to make sure my husband doesn’t pack the car next time we go on holidays!

This weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches has been designed by the super talented and perfect colourist, Rita Wright.  Here’s her wonderful sketch:

Happy Birthday Gorgeous has gorgeous little flowers that I love using.  They have a solid stamp that lines up perfectly to colour the flowers in no time.  The colours I’ve used for the centre of my flowers are Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Blushing Bride.  The leaves that I have used are from Flourish Thinlits Dies and I have used a combination of Olive Old and Berry Burst cardstock.

The birthday sentiment I’ve used is from Big on Birthdays.  The pretty DSP I’ve used in the background is from Bundle of Love Speciality DSP.  I then used a strip of Berry Burst cardstock to tie all of the colours and flowers together.

Here’s my card:

We would love if it you could join us with Rita’s sketch.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the wonderful inspiration from the Clean Team.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
