Freshly Made Sketches 362


I am sneaking in under the wire to get my card created for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week.  I have had good intentions since the sketch came out on Wednesday....one animal crisis after another has cut into my craft time this week!  Thankfully all of the four legged critters are doing fine and I am sure my vet is doing well too!  I created this card from memory....which might not be soo great.  I grabbed the little free time I had to create and pulled this together.  After pulling up the sketch, I see I could have easily added another layer!


My photo editing skills do not do the bright colors justice! My card is created with the Oh What Fun papers by Close To My Heart.  My glitter snowflake is multiple layers to make it pop off the card.  Here is a look at the complete paper pack-


The fun colors are a little unexpected for Christmas, but they have seriously grown on me! I finished out the inside with a pop of color as well.

Paper Players Sketch Challenge 416


Just a friendly reminder, that time is running out to complete your Christmas cards! The new Holiday Expressions has a great variety of holiday stamps to choose from. I tend to lean towards traditional colors for my holiday cards, with the occasional purple snowflake card.  At first glance, I did not think the Oh What Fun paper pack was for me. Actually playing with the papers, totally changed that!  I love the fun bright colors.  The bright pink and green create such a festive card.  While some of the patterns are holiday oriented, you can easily flip them over to a versatile pattern for other occasions.  Here is a look at the complete paper pack-

I created my card with Raspberry and Clover as my primary colors.  Not sure what the rules are on mixing stripes and polka dots, but I love the mix together!


My card is based on the Sketch Challenge this week at The Paper Players. I am a huge fan of layers, so this sketch was perfect for me!  I can see many more cards in the future with this design.  If you hurry, you can still play along. The link up closes November 2 at noon, PST.

I finished out the inside of my card with a sentiment from the same stamp set and a left over strip of coordinating paper.  I tend to save any strips over 1/2", they are perfect for adding a pop of color to the inside of your cards.

Freshly Made Sketches #360


I have finally made it back to my craft room!  I have been away for far too long!  I inked up some new Close To My Heart products to join in on the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I loved the simple sketch this week and did my best to keep it clean!  Here is the original sketch in case you want to join in on the fun.

I added some dimension to my card by layering the sunflower stamp that is included in the Workshop Your Way You Got This Cardmaking Kit.  I stamped two sunflowers and paper pieced the sunflower together.  I then layered the leaves for added depth.  I sponged the edges of the flower for added interest.


If you are new to cardmaking or would just like to have a bundle of coordinating supplies, the Workshops Your Way Cardmaking Kits are a great place to start.  The majority of my card was created with the You Got This Kit.  The kit includes an exclusive stamp set, pattern paper, cardstock, ribbon and cardbases with envelopes.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
G1166 Workshop Your Way You Got This Cardmaking Kit
X6021 Sapphire Cardstock
Z2848 Sapphire Exclusive Ink Pad
Z2843 Canary Exclusive Ink Pad
Z2851 Saffron Exclusive Ink Pad
