Freshly Made Sketches #400 Week 4

Hey Everyone

Welcome to week 4 of our month of celebration at Freshly Made Sketches.  This challenge is a special one as there will be prizes! Yes! Prizes! All you have to do is design a card and link it up to the challenge for your chance to win.  We will randomly choose cards to receive a prize from our sponsors below.  How fabulously generous these companies are to provide these prizes for us to give away.

Wonder if I can create a card and change my name in the gallery so I could be eligible for one of these……probs not…..

The card I’ve created showcases one of my favourite images – the gorgeous magnolia image from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set. This flower is so easy to colour and is a great focal point to any card.  I’ve lightly coloured the petals with my Petal Pink Blends and the leaves with my Mint Macaron Blends.

The designer series paper I’ve used in the background is from Magnolia Lane DSP.  I matted the DSP with Mossy Meadow Cardstock and layered it on a Thick Whisper White Cardstock base.  Once my flower was coloured, I added a sentiment from Tropical Chic as it was the perfect shape and size for my card.  I also matted the sentiment with Mossy Meadow Cardstock.

Don’t forget for you chance to win one of the amazing prizes above, then head over to Freshly Made Sketches and link up a card. While you’re there, make sure you check out the wonderful cards the Clean Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

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:

Magnolia Sympathy Card

Hey Everyone

I’ve been away for the weekend but managed to unpack quickly, pretend to clean and get into my craft room.  The card I’ve made is for a friend who has recently lost someone dear to them.

This is my first time inking up Good Morning Magnolia Cling Stamp Set. This stamp set can be purchased in a bundle with the matching Magnolia Memory Dies.  I’ve chosen the magnolia buds stamp from this set and the little leaves as well.  The buds have been given a watercolour with So Saffron and Sahara Sands Inks.  The leaves have been given colour with Old Olive Ink.

The pretty DSP I’ve used on the card base is from the matching Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  I then stamped the Whisper White Cardstock background with the script stamp from Very Versailles Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I created a Whisper White frame with my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. To make this frame into more of a rectangle, I cut through the middle of it and covered up the joins.  I’ve angled this frame and layered my sentiment, flowers and leaves around it.

Under my sentiment (also from Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set) I’ve added an Olive Olive edgelit cut with a die from Morning Magnolia Dies.  On top of this edgelit, I’ve added a strip of Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim as it was too pretty not to use on my card.

Thanks for stopping by.
