Freshly Made Sketches #140

Hey Everyone

Linda Callahan is this weeks hostess at Freshly Made Sketches.  I just love Linda’s creative sketches and always love how easy my cards come together using them.

Here’s Linda’s sketch:

I’ve gone with a pretty simple card today using little flowers from Stampin’ Up!s Stippled Blossoms and paired them with some DSP from Retro Fresh.  I’ve stamped the circles from Lacy & Lovely in Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana to tie in with the colours in the DSP.  Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #130

Hey Everyone

Linda Callahan has designed this fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for us this week:

I decided to give watercolouring a go this week and found these pretty flowers from Happy Watercolor gave me the chance to practice my colouring.  The designer series papers I’ve used are from Stampin’ Up!s Retro Fresh DSP.  I’ve teamed them with Basic Gray cardstock.  The sentiment label I’ve used is from So Lovely and it give the flowers on it a little boost, I’ve coloured them with my Tangerine Tango marker (it was the closest orange marker I had on hand).

Freshly Made Sketches #125

Hey Everyone

Woohoo I’m this weeks hostess at Freshly Made Sketches.  I don’t know why but I always get a bit nervous when it’s my turn.  I kept this sketch as delayered as I could – I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

Yes, I know I have an addiction to Coastal Cabana but I just can’t help it.  I have used it quite a bit lately on my cards but to mix things up, I’ve teamed it with Sahara Sand.   I’ve added a couple of banners to my card that aren’t on the sketch, but I really like the look it gave – you know how I like fullness to my cards!  Here’s what I came up with:

Just Add Ink #203

Hey Everyone

Paula’s sketch at Just Add Ink this week is a great one! Take a look:

I haven’t made a baby card in ages so I thought it was about time I added to my stash.  Coastal Cabana is probably one of my favourite In-Colours at the moment (you could probably tell that with how much I’ve used it lately!).  I decided it would be a fab colour for a neutral baby card.  I’m a bit surprised that with how much I love this colour that I haven’t yet purchased matching ribbon.  Normally I would throw a bit of ribbon on my card to finish it off, but as I’ve been slack in ordering, I’ve used my new fringing scissors to add a border for a bit of interest.  I also got to use my new Stampin’ Up! set called Baby We’ve Grown. How cute are these little owls? The designer series paper I’ve used is a new one too from Stampin’ Up!s 2014 Occasions Catalogue called Retro Fresh DSP.

Freshly Made Sketches #122

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday so that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS122sketch

Don’t you just love this classic sketch by the talented Cindy Hall?  I’ve used some of my new Stampin’ Up! goodies – some new designer series paper called Retro Fresh and some new stamp sets called Simple Stems and Peaceful Petals.  I found this card really hard to photograph and it still seems washed out, but it was the best of about 20 photos!  I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo but I have two layers to each flower because I like to give my cards some dimension and the leaves are lightly coloured with Coastal Cabana ink.
