Freshly Made Sketches #382

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This weeks sketch has been designed by the amazing Jennifer Timko.  We all adore her and love everything she creates.

This card came together so easy – mainly because I had this image already coloured on my desk discarded from a previous project. I then tied in my DSP and colours from the colours I’d already used on my flowers.  I took a piece of DSP from Botanical Butterflies and a sentiment from Needlepoint Nook.

The team have created wonderful cards. Pop over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look.

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 #371

Hey Everyone

Welcome to Wednesday and a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Take a look at this awesome sketch designed by the uber talented Jen Mitchell.

The stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalogue on the top of my list was Wonderful Romance.  This gorgeous stamp, with it’s spray of flowers and leaves, is perfect for colouring.  The flowers were given a light watercolour with Highland Heather Ink.  Because it was a tad hot in my craft room over the weekend, my glasses got a little foggy and I ended up with a bit of Highland Heather Ink in the centre of one of my flowers.  Of course I’d already coloured the leaves and didn’t want to start the whole thing again.  What to do?  Grab my White Gel Pen and add a dob of white gel to the centre of the flower. Image saved!  I then took my Black Journalling Pen to add definition lines to each of the petals.  I coloured the leaves with Lemon Lime Twist Ink and then added some Old Olive Ink to base of the leaves to create depth.

I can’t tell you how happy I was when I saw the matching framelits to this stamp set.  This framelit set is called Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies. Not only does the largest die cut around the outside of the stamp, it creates cutouts in areas that I wouldn’t be able to access by fussy cutting!  I did however fussy cut the two leaves that I added to the top of the image.  These leaves were given a darker shade of green to them – Mossy Meadow Ink.  I mainly fussy cut images like these because I like a fine edge around my images.  Another favourite die in this set is the doily type die that you can see under my spray of flowers.  I know this will feature on so many cards that I create.

The sentiment I’ve used is also from this set.  I added a strip of Lemon Lime Twist and Sahara Sand Cardstock under the sentiment.  The Whisper White Cardstock in the background is embossed with my Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.   I then finished of my card with a Linen Thread bow and some sequins.

We would love for you to join us with this weeks sketch.  The Design Team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful inspiration for you.  Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
