Freshly Made Sketches #289

Hey Everyone

Happy Wednesday! Love Wednesdays as it means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This weeks sketch has been designed by Linda Callahan. I adore every one of Linda’s cards as she’s so creative and so very talented!

I was overdue for a masculine card.  The stamp sets I’ve used for my card are Feather Together and Big on Birthdays.  These feathers are just fabulous!  I’ve stamped them in Soft Sky and Dapper Denim.  The circles under my feathers are from Stampin’ Up!s Eastern Beauty and the watersplash type stamp is from Gorgeous Grunge – I’m going to miss this set!  The designer series paper is from Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper and I’ve tied everyone together with some linen thread and a strip of Burlap Ribbon under my sentiment. I really need to push myself and make more masculine cards as it’s surprising how many requests I get for them!

Here’s my card:

The girls at Freshly Made Sketches have created gorgeous cards to inspire you.  Pop over to the challenge and take a look!

Thanks for stopping by.

Does anyone else see a newly released stamp set and think there’s no way you’d ever buy it?  That was me with Dragonfly Dreams. When I saw the lovely creations people were making, I caved and got it. I laugh now because I am totally in love with it! Why did I ever think I wouldn’t use it?

I love everything about this sketch.  I had lots of plans to create a masculine card, but somehow I’ve ended up with another floral card.  Oh well – I find that I need more feminine floral cards anyway.

Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #325

Hey Everyone

Sketches challenges are my favourite!  Tina has designed this fab one for us at Just Add Ink.

I really love this colour combination together – Tip Top Taupe, Basic Black and Hello Honey.  I don’t own a ric rac die so I’ve settled for stripey DSP – I like the striking effect of it behind the white panels.  The flower I’ve water coloured with Hello Honey ink is from Stampin’ Up!s Birthday Blooms. My leaves are coloured with Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke ink.  Here’s my card:

This sketch gave me the chance to use my new Flourishes Thinlit Dies.  I LOVE how they layer and am really glad I added them into my last Stampin’ Up! order.  Here’s what I came up with.
