On the weekend I decided I’m the messy cardmaker ever. Some of the Artisan Design Team filmed their craft spaces for us to view – which were totally amazing by the way. I was in awe. My room however, was totally putrid and I was too embarrassed to show it. A clean up then followed……for about 1/2 hour and then I got bored. So instead of putting things away, I decided to create a card from a magnolia image I had laying on my desk as well as some DSP cut offs. That was much for fun than cleaning! Cleaning can wait for another day right?
The rectangles of designer series paper I used are from Garden Lane DSP and Woven Threads DSP. The amazing magnolia image is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set. I gave the petals colour with my Petal Pink and Crumb Cake Blends and the centre with Daffodil Delight Blends. The leaves have been coloured with my Mint Macaron Blends.
The sentiment I’ve used is also from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set. I added a strip of Sahara Sand Cardstock and a piece of Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim. Pretty quick and easy as I already had everything stamped, cut out and ready to go.
Here’s the card I created:

It’s Wednesday! That’s means we have a new sketch for you to try at Freshly Made Sketches. The fabulously talented designer of this weeks sketch is Jennifer Timko! Take a look at her wonderful sketch:
I couldn’t resist using my Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder again. The texture it creates is sooooooo very effective and I find I don’t need to add a whole heap to my card to take it to a level of “fullness” that I like.
The flowers I’ve used on my card are from the Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set. I’ve stamped these flowers in two colours – So Saffron and Crushed Curry Inks. The leaves are also from this stamp set. To tie in with the colour scheme I was going for, I stamped them in Smoky Slate Ink. The centre of the flowers have been stamped in Black Memento Ink.
I was determined to use this sentiment (also from Beautiful Friendship) on my card, so to make it work best, I stamped it on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock and placed it across my card. The strip of DSP I’ve used is from Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. The DSP has been matted with Crushed Curry Cardstock. Under the sentiment I added a piece of Sahara Sand Woven Threads Trim.
The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created amazing cards with this weeks sketch. Head over to the challenge and see for yourself.
