Freshly Made Sketches 292

Hello,

Over the weekend, I had a chance to play along with last weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. This sketch was designed by Cécile and it was a fun one. At first, I was like "what am I going to do with that sketch?" After playing around with a few different colour combinations, I finally came up with this!!

I had some new product on my table and I thought why not use them! LOVE, LOVE the new Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Texture Impression Folder! The impressions are so deep and real!!

I went with the colour combination of Berry Burst, Basic Black and Whisper White. These colours together are so rich and stunning!! 

My pattern paper is from the Color Theory Designer Series Pack and the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper pack!! 

Doesn't this chair look so inviting? Makes me just want to sit outside with a nice cold glass of Ice Tea!! I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set!! The greeting is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!

I hope that you will head over to Freshly Made Sketches to give this sketch a try!!

Bear Hugs - Valentine Card

Hello,

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you are having a lovely day with your loved ones! It's a quiet one around here which is just what we all need..a chillin' day! We have been so busy that we are all looking forward to watching some movies and I am looking forward to some time to stamp!!

I stuck into my room this morning to create this fun Valentine card for Corrie. I couldn't resist using the new Bear Hugs stamp set and matching Bear Hug framelits. This new bundle is a one that you can use for any occasions from birthdays, to thanks, anniversary and just to say " I Love you."

As I was starting to make this card, I knew that I wanted to use this week's Freshly Made Sketch #223. This fun sketch was created by Amy. I love that this sketch can be used for some many occasions and one that I will be using again in the future!!

 

So once I gathered my inks, stamps, and paper, I knew that I wanted my card to be a Valentine's card and that the bear would be my main focus!

When I was designed the card, I knew that I wanted to use the Love Blossom Designer Series Paper pack and chose the colours that coordinate with this paper pack: Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Whisper White.

The Love Blossom paper pack worked perfect for the stripes behind my circle. My bear was stamped in Crumb Cake and cut out with my Bear Hugs framelits and Big Shot machine. One of my favourite things is when I can stamp an image and die cut it out with a framelit...simple, easy and no fussy cutting!!

I hope that you can play along with this weeks sketch and head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the amazing samples created with this sketch!!

I hope you will visit my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Store and browse around. You will find the weekly deals here along with huge discount product in the Clearance Rack. Plus you will find all the supplies for this project at the bottom of my post.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Sheltering Tree

Hello,

I hope you are having a great weekend! Ours is a quiet one which is nice for a change!! When I was designed for my projects for Coffee and Cards, I turned to the web to look for some fun sketch challenges. I came across this fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I really like the clean and simply look to it and couldn't wait to figure out my pieces for the sketch!!

FMS185When I saw the pieces tug behind the square, I automatically thought of Washi Tape. Since I was designing with the colours of Crisp Cantaloupe and Basic Grey, I knew the Sweet Dreams Washi tape would coordinate beautifully with my project.

BlogPhotos3-046I stamped my tree in Basic Grey and my flowers in Crisp Cantaloupe. As I said in previous post, I'm really going to miss this colour when it leaves on June 2!!

Stampin' Tips:

  • layers of Whisper White creates a simple and clean project
  • add layers of Washi tape for a fun background detail
  • pop up your image for extra dimension
  • Sweet Dreams Washi Tape will be leaving us on June 2

Freshly Made Sketches #122

Happy Monday!!

This week's Freshly Made Sketches was a Clean and Simple sketch that was created by Cindy H and its a fun one!! I think this is one that I will keep for future references as you can use it for any occasions!

I always struggle with Men's cards so I challenged myself to create one. I had the Watercolour Designer Series Paper on my desk so I looked for a pattern that I thought would work and use the colour combo in the paper to create my card.

Striking colours of Island Indigo and Smoky Slate created this masculine card!!

Freshly Made Sketches # 121

Happy Monday!

A new week with new sketches and challenges. I'm having tons of fun playing along with all these sketches and the best part is they are making me think outside the box and I'm using up supplies!

This week's Freshly Made Sketches is created by Linda. When I first saw this sketch, I had an idea in my mind but when I actually put it on paper it just wasn't working for me. So I scratch that idea and went with another one and love the finally result. I had Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper on my desk and thought it would be fun to use that!! I have to say " That I love the colour combo in this paper...makes me think of spring!"

This is what I came up with.....
