Freshly Made Sketches #312

Hey Everyone

Welcome to the newest challenges at Freshly Made Sketches.  This weeks sketch has been designed by the super talented Cecile Ribon.  She is the master of using amazing dies and creates cards that scream elegance.

Take a look at this cool sketch:

I recently purchased Stampin’ Up!s Painted Harvest.  My flowers are stamped with Pool Party and for a deeper contrast I stamped over the top with Bermuda Bay.  The centre of my flowers is stamped with Smoky Slate.  The outline of my leaves is stamped with Basic Black and the centre with Bermuda Bay.  My card was designed around this wonderful sentiment.  I was determined to use this sentiment on my card.

The designer series paper I’ve used on the bottom corner of my card is from Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  I then added a strip of Black Bakers Twine to bring in more black on my card to tie in with my sequins.

Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #370

Hey Everyone

It’s Friday here in Australia and it’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week is sketch week and I’m the sketch designer.  I’ve created the following sketch for you:

After yesterday’s baby card I decided to make another one.  I wanted to use Moon Baby, a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that hadn’t seen ink – until today.

I also used my Embossing Paste for a project that I actually liked.  My previous attempts have ended up in the bin……  I’ve used various stamps from Moon Baby and given them a light watercolour.  My moon baby is also lightly watercoloured with Soft Sky Ink and then fussy cut and raised with dimensionals.

The designer series paper is from the same DSP pack as I used yesterday.  It’s called Naturally Eclectic and and I like that it matches my Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Here’s my card:

We would love it if you could join us with this challenge.  To inspire you, the design team have created gorgeous cards – head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #298

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our sketch has been designed by the uber talented Linda Callhan.  Her sketches are fabulous and her cards are even more so!

Here’s her sketch:

Looking through my stash of cards, I realised I don’t have many baby cards.  I decided to ink up Stampin’ Up!s Little One for my card today. How cute is this sweet little teepee? I lightly watercoloured the teepee with Smoky Slate Ink and fussy cut it as well as the little bunny and cushion – they also received a light watercolour with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake Ink.  Once I stuck these images to my card I felt the top was a little bare so to finish off the scene I cut some clouds with my Up & Away Thinlits Dies.

The designer series paper I’ve used is from Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  Soft Sky and the pattern in this paper are perfect for baby cards. I’ve teamed the DSP with Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock.

Here’s the card I created:

As always the team have nailed the sketch. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the wonderful inspiration the team has provided.
