Freshly Made Sketches #275

Hey Everyone

It’s that time again where it’s my turn to design the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  As always, I feel the pressure when it’s my turn to come up with a card.

So my idea for this card started off with Blushing Bride and hearts, but this is how it ended up…..not pink and no hearts. The Stampin’ Up! stamp set I’ve used is Jar of Love and I’ve used a sentiment with Greetings Thinlits.

Freshly Made Sketches #265

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I’m the sketch hostess this week and I designed a simple sketch for you – without my usual layers.

Can anyone else believe that Christmas is only around the corner?  As I don’t tend to make the same card twice, I’m struggling to have enough cards to send out.  For my card today, I created a wreath by cutting out a circle to use as a mask and then stamped the leaves from Jar of Love in Pool Party and Smoky Slate.  I then cut a sentiment from Christmas Greetings and some leaves and pine cones from Perfect Pines Thinlits Dies.  The berries were made from the tiny circles from the Cookie Cutter Punch – they are little buggers to stick down!

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #255

Hey Everyone

Goodness, 255 is a lot of sketches! I remember when Lesley started Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  I played along with the very first sketch.  I looked back at my card and I totally wished I hadn’t – it sucked! Think I’ve improved along the way – well I hope I have 😉

Our resident Stampin’ Up! Artisan Designer, Amy O’Neill, is our sketch hostess this week.  She is such a talented card maker and an awesome sketch designer. Take a look at her sketch:

As I’m on holidays, my husband organised for my mum to come for a sleep over.  She loves Stampin’ Up! as much as I do and as I don’t have Jar of Love yet, she let me have a play with hers.  I’ve now ordered it as I love it so much. Here’s my card:
