Freshly Made Sketches #284

Hello 🙂 I almost went with Karren’s hearts in the layout for Freshly Made Sketches #284: …but I had these burlap flowers and decided to go with them instead. I went with neutral colours. I felt the patterned paper was a great match for the flower embellishments. It could work for a just thank you…

Freshly Made Sketches #283

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #283: Everyone else seemed to have a die that made that exact wave shape, but I don’t so I had to improvise: I made another Mother’s Day card 😀 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

Freshly Made Sketches #282

I absolutely love Cecile’s sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #282: How adorable is that!? Once again, I used the opportunity to make a Mother’s Day card: I know it’s a holiday of flowers, but moms are made of all sorts of women and not all women like flowers or pink. Here I went with stars,…

SIP #92 & FMS #281

I can’t remember the last time I combined challenges, but Stamp Ink Paper #92 and Freshly Made Sketches #281 made a great match!   I loved the colours and really wanted to use them. Here is a close up: The hexagon stamps are Avery Elle (All Squared Up) and the sentiment stamp is Hampton Art…

Freshly Made Sketches #279 – floral birthday card

What a neat sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #279: Horizontal layout!!! <3<3<3 Here is my card: I love those vibrant (but somehow kind of pastel) colours of those flowers with the grey.

Freshly Made Sketches #278

It’s a fun sketch this week for Freshly Made Sketches #278: Here is my card: I have some peach geometric paper behind the embossed blue panel. The enamel dots are also peach, and the brad attaching the scissors is a warm brass colour to play off the peach. I had been trying to figure out…

Freshly Made Sketches #277

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #277: I for some reason like things grouped to the left, so I loved this sketch 🙂 Here is what I made:   I can never get enough hexagons/honeycomb. Here I have embossed my card and used two different papers with a honeycomb pattern. I somehow got…

Fusion challenge – pretty in pink

Pink is the theme for this Fusion Card Challenge: I used the pink element and the sketch. Here is what I made: It’s pink and super girly! I embossed the patterned paper and ran a bit of ink on the raised flowers an birds. The speech bubble and heart are chipboard. I used the same…

Freshly Made Sketches #276

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #276: Nice and balanced! Here is what I came up with: I embossed the back panel to add a bit more to the card cause it seemed a bit boring without it. The anchor die had been sitting at the bottom of my container and so I’m…

Freshly Made Sketches #275

Here is this week’s sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches: I have been feeling a girly hangover after Valentine’s Day. In keeping with my streak of making some more masculine cards, I came up with this: I love this paper. I got it years ago, and I forget where but I wish I had picked…
