Freshly Made Sketches #374

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday already! We have a new sketch for you to play along with at Freshly Made Sketches. This weeks sketch has been designed by Jennifer Brum.  It’s so cool and I have to say I had a lot of fun creating my card.

I laughed when I saw this sketch and the tons of circles on it – I even had to check it twice that it was Jen’s sketch as she has a fear of circles on sketches – I am pretty sure she has overcome her fear with this fabulous sketch!

To match the circles on the sketch, I used the bokeh effect stamp from Beauty Abounds.  I stamped the circles in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  The Lemon Lime Twist diecut leaves I’ve used are cut with my Wonderful Romance Framelits Dies.  I had previously fussy cut the butterfly I’ve used on this card and had it leftover from another project. So apart from the Birthday sentiment, this card is pretty simple without my usual layers.  The diecut sentiment is a new-to-me die set. It’s called Well Written Framelits Dies. This set has sooooo many wonderful and useful sentiments that will feature on many of my cards.

Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the amazing cards the team have created with this sketch.

Thanks thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #442

Hey Everyone

Welcome to Friday and a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week is sketch week at JAI – take a look at the fabulous sketch designed by Kim.

Can you tell I love layers on my cards? Pretty sure your answer’s going to be yes. I try to simplify my layers, but before I know it, my card is full of layers!

These fabulous leaves and sentiment that I’ve used on my card are from Stampin’ Up!s Wonderful Romance Stamp Set.  I stamped the leaves with Black Archival Ink and then gave them a light watercolour with Lemon Lime Twist and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I then used my matching Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies to cut them out.  The Whisper White doily type die is also from this die set.

To add another colour to my card, I used a strip of Petal Pink Designer Series Paper from Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The butterfly I’ve added to my card is fussy cut from Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I’m really getting the hang of cutting into my DSP!  I then added a pretty Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequin.

The Design Team at Just Add Ink have created wonderful cards using this sketch. Pop over to Just Add Ink and see what they team have created for you.  We would love it if you could play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #373

Hey Everyone

Welcome to our newest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. This weeks sketch has been designed by the fabulous and so very talented Kim Singdahlsen.Something I don’t normally do is flip a sketch.  I’m thinking the main reason I did this was to use up the diecut from Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies that I had sitting on my desk. I’ve placed it between strips of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock.  I’ve starting cutting into my DSP! Eek! The black and white butterfly has been cut from Botanical Butterfly DSP – an item you can earn free during Sale-A-Bration when you spend $90 or more.

The sentiment I’ve used is from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalogue called Beauty Abounds. To highlight the sentiment I’ve stamped a bokeh effect stamp also from this stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist. I then added some leafy diecuts from Wonderful Romance Framelits dies. To finish of my mostly monochromatic card, I then added a Lemon Lime Twist sequin.

 

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome cards using Kim’s sketch. Pop over to the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.
