Freshly Made Sketches #462

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch has been designed by me! I took inspiration for my sketch from the stickies icon on my computer.

I’m continuing to create Christmas cards as I don’t know how many more I need to make and also because I am loving the festive sets I have and want to get the most use out of them.

I had the Posted For You Bundle sitting on my desk so I’ve used the postage stamp image and the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to add some layers to my card. The sentiment on my card and bow I’ve added are from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. The leafy diecut has been cut with my Forever Flourishing Dies. I added a piece of Braided Linen Trim to match the Crumb Cake Cardstock under the leafy diecut. To add more texture, I embossed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder added it to my card base.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created gorgeous cards that make my sketch look good! Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

CAS(E) This Sketch #391

Hey Everyone

I’ve been gettin snapchats all morning from my family, who only live an hour away from me, of snow falling.  While I’m sitting here in a t-shirt…… I’m so jealous as we don’t get snow here in the city I live in…. So instead of feeling sorry for myself, I went out to my craft room and made a card for this weeks sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.

I decided to start my card with the designer series paper that reminded me of snow falling and my card went from there.  The DSP I’ve used is from a pack called Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. I stamped two bow images from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set and coloured them with a combination of Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Blends.  The leaves I’ve added to my card have been cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies – there are two of them on this card.

Once I layered everything around the sentiment (also from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set) I decided to stamp two little tags also from the same set  I coloured one with the Dark Pool Party Blend and the other was stamped with the holly image in the set.These were then fussy cut and layered next to the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
