Freshly Made Sketches #284

Hey Everyone

Oh I love a great sketch! This weeks sketch at Freshly Made Sketches has been designed by the talented cardmaker and talented sketch maker Karren Johnson.

The pretty colour combination I have used on my card is – Soft Sky, Mossy Meadow & Sweet Sugarplum.  A combo I have never used before, but found I really love these colours together.  The flowers I have used are from Stampin’ Up!s Special reason and I have paired them with the flower and leave dies from Stylish Stems Framelit Dies.  I stamped the sentiment and frame around the sentiment die in Basic Black ink so it would stand out a bit more – it is also from Special Reason.

Here’s my card:

The design team at Freshly Made Sketches have created gorgeous cards to inspire you.  Head over to the challenge and take a look.  We would love it if you could play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Freshly Made Sketches #282

Hey Everyone

There’s a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch hostess is the fabulously talented Cecile Ribon.  I fell in love with this sketch as soon as I saw it.  It’s such a cool design that made making my card easy and come together in no time.  A no time card was what I needed as I’m on hols and sunning it up by the beach until next week.  Take a look at the friends I made while I was putting my card together on Monday. These cheeky birds have me wrapped around their little fingers (if they had any) and have me feeding them 3 times a day.

Now on to Cecile’s cool sketch:

You probably know by now about my love of flower stamp sets.  The stamp set I have used is from Stampin’ Up!s Oh So Succulent. The flowers I have stamped are quite possibly supposed to be made into succulents, but I decided to colour mine and make a Dahlia out of it.  I have paired them with some leaves from Stylish Stems Framelit Dies.  The squares in the background are from Urban Underground Speciality Designer Series Paper – which I LOVE! The sentiments I’ve used are from Balloon Adventures. There are so many of the sentiments that I use from this versatile set.

Here’s my card:

As always, the Design Team at Freshly Made Sketches has nailed it and created gorgeous cards to inspire you. Head over to the challenge and take a look.  While you’re there, we would love it if you could play along.

Thanks for stopping by.
