Freshly Made Sketches #474

Hey Everyone

Welcome to my blog and the latest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch hostess is the wonderfully talented Judy Rozema.

The card I’ve created features the Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set called Flowering Blooms. After I stamped the images with Black Memento Ink, I gave the flowers colour with So Saffron and Mango Melody Blends. I then fussy cut them out. For the background, I took the Light So Saffron Blend and coloured the cardstock to create a watercoloured type base.

The DSP I’ve added to the card base is from the True Love DSP pack. I had the Postage Punch Sahara Sand Cardstock shape already sitting on my desk, so I decided to add this to my card. I then cut the die sentiment from the Always Dies and added it to the card. The stamped sentiment was also laying on my desk and I trimmed the full sentiment to be just “your kindness” to go with the die cut. I added three Gold Metallic Pearls and a Linen Trim to finish off my card.

The Clean Team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome cards that will no doubt inspire you. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #451

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday so that means a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this weeks sketch hostess is me! I’ve created a simple sketch but doesn’t mean I’ve kept my card simple. I LOVE details and layering.

The Flowering Blooms Stamp Set has been one I’ve been itching to use. The flowers in this stamp set were made for colouring. I’ve given the larger blooms some colour with Purple Posy and Highland Heather Blends.  The smaller flowers have been coloured with my Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Blends. The leaves have been shaded with Mint Macaron Blends.The flowers and leaves have all been fussy cut and layered on DSP from Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment I’ve used is also from the Flowering Blooms Stamp Set. Three Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added because my cards just aren’t complete without them.

Make sure you head over to the challenge and see the gorgeous creations the team have created with my sketch.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
