Freshly Made Sketches #400 Week 2

Hey Everyone

Welcome to the second week of Freshly Made Sketches month of celebrations.  Week 2 sees us revisit our 200th sketch.

This sketch had me reaching for my Dashing Deer Bundle to pair with some Garden Lane DSP.  I love it when I can work products into projects for something other than they were designed for.  This Garden Lane DSP isn’t a traditional pack of Christmas papers, but I think it works perfect for my festive card.

My deer has been cut out with my Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies.  To tie in with the colours in the DSP, I used Mossy Meadow Cardstock for him.  I added some strips of Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand Cardstocks under the sentiment as well as piece of Braided Linen Trim.  For a bit of sparkle I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

The team have created wonderful cards using this sketch.  Why don’t you pop over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what they’ve created?  We would love it if you played along with us!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Morning Magnolia Thrown Together

Hey Everyone

On the weekend I decided I’m the messy cardmaker ever.  Some of the Artisan Design Team filmed their craft spaces for us to view – which were totally amazing by the way.  I was in awe.  My room however, was totally putrid and I was too embarrassed to show it.  A clean up then followed……for about 1/2 hour and then I got bored.  So instead of putting things away, I decided to create a card from a magnolia image I had laying on my desk as well as some DSP cut offs.  That was much for fun than cleaning! Cleaning can wait for another day right?

The rectangles of designer series paper I used are from Garden Lane DSP and Woven Threads DSP.  The amazing magnolia image is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.  I gave the petals colour with my Petal Pink and Crumb Cake Blends and the centre with Daffodil Delight Blends.  The leaves have been coloured with my Mint Macaron Blends.

The sentiment I’ve used is also from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set. I added a strip of Sahara Sand Cardstock and a piece of Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim. Pretty quick and easy as I already had everything stamped, cut out and ready to go.

Here’s the card I created:
