Freshly Made Sketches #97

I love Wednesdays!  Time for the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Today our amazing talented, SU Artisan Design Team member, Jennifer Timko is our host.  Her sketch is a really fun one!  I had such a blast using it to create this card:


I am still playing with my new A Muse Studio preorder products.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on these super cute little ghosts from the Happy Haunting stamp set.  And I especially love that they have matching dies!

Here is Jennifer's super fun sketch:

Happy Birthday


I need more birthday cards in my stash so I searched through my patterned paper collections for something bright and colorful.  I used the colors to add some festive balloons.  I think I kinda went overboard with the balloons, but they are fun!  I am submitting this card to the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday.

Freshly Made Sketches #96

Hello!  It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Amy is our host this week and as soon as I saw her sketch, I knew what I wanted to do.  I inked up Spring Hills from Papertrey Ink and got out the copics:


Fun to color!  Here is Amy's fabulous sketch:


I was planning on making a tag, but after I got the image colored, I couldn't make it into a tag.  I just wanted to keep it plain.  So, here I go again, not following directions.  Sorry Amy!  I didn't even add any additional stamping or paper; I just added a few score lines and called it done.  

Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on Amy's sketch!

#AHOY


There's a new challenge in town - Curtain Call!  I really wanted to play in the first challenge, but I have to admit I was disappointed in the inspiration challenge - Feeling Nautical.  I know that nautical is the latest trend, but I have so few nautical craft supplies.  I couldn't find anything useful in my stamp collection, so I turned to my paper collections to see what I could scare up there.  Yay!  I found my Men of Life collection from Papertrey Ink with its nautical patterns.  I added some mustard-colored twine and my new Tall Alpha dies from A Muse Studio to make my sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Deck the Halls


I love this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!  I was definitely in the holiday spirit this past weekend; I made several Christmas cards, including this one.  I did stray from the sketch with the sentiment.  I really wanted to use that sentiment and I just liked it so much better right in the middle.

Freshly Made Sketches #95

Happy Wednesday!  Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our host this week is Narelle and she has a great sketch!  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to break out some patterned paper.


While flipping through some paper collections, I came across a pattern with flowers that looked like the flowers in the Flower Shop stamp set from Stampin' Up.  Of course, I couldn't resist playing with that!  Hmm... I'm thinking I should have added some bling; it's looking a little blah to me.

Here is Narelle's sketch:

Waltzingmouse July Christmas Card Challenge

Hi there!  Time for the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge for July!

Cassie Lu is our hostess this month and her challenge is to include a star.  I was thrilled because it was the perfect chance for me to ink up my new stamp set - Yonder Star!  This set is such a fun western themed holiday set!


I took a step back from my usual white base cards and went with kraft for a rustic look.  Fun!  And quick and easy to make multiples!

A new challenge will be issued on the 10th of each month in the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenges Forum.  If you're not already a forum member, it's easy and free to sign up.  The guidelines are also posted in the forum - right here.

I hope you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

To My Friend


Just a simple one layer card I made really fast while playing around with the new Tape It stamp set from Stampin' Up.  Faux washi tape.  Why not just use real washi tape?  I liked the patterns and I like the idea that I can stamp them in any color.  Maybe not a great answer, but it's my story and I'm sticking to it.  ;-)

This is a card that I made last weekend for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I used Sketch #34 and intended to submit it to the challenge, but I forgot about it and missed the deadline.  I love the Stampin' Up Flower Shop stamp set and its matching pansy punch!  Fun!

Open If You Dare


When I saw the latest sketch at CASE(E) this Sketch, I don't know why, but I saw spiders.  So I went with it and made my first Halloween card of the year.  I really like this sketch, I think I'll be playing with it some more.

Freshly Made Sketches #93

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches   Allisa is our hostess this week and she brings us a very versatile sketch.  I love it; there is so much you can do with it!  I decided that I would create a little scene with one of the new stamp sets I got recently from SU - Wetlands:


I love this little stamp set.  With just a little subtle Copic coloring on the goose, she's a beauty.  I fussy cut her out, along with some stamped grass from the same set, and I gave my little scene a 3-D look.  I think this makes a great masculine card.


Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I can't wait to see your take on Allisa's sketch!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
