Freshly Made Sketches – Sketch # 125

Hi there

I said I would be back today and here am!!  I know two posts in two days whatever next!!

Today I have a card made for Freshly Made Sketches # 125.

Here is the inspiration sketch by Narelle………..

FMS Final 125-001







Again I kept it simple and stuck pretty much to the sketch as given making a focal point out of some stacked hello die cuts from My Favorite Things. I stacked up several white die cuts and topped the stack with an aqua one. I love the look of these and have used them on quite a few cards. As a finishing touch I added a few sequins.

The papers are from one of my current favourite 6 x 6 paper pads……Garden Party by Pebbles. I just love the pink, green and aqua combination!

So here is my card…….








Supplies: Card –  Bazzill Robin’s Egg, MFT Cotton Candy, PTI  Stampers Select White. Papers – Pebbles Garden Party 6 x 6 pad. Dies MFT Dienamics Happy Hellos. Sequins – Lawn Fawn Lawn Ornaments Into the Woods and Peace Joy Love.

Back soon…..Promise!! x

Freshly made Sketches # 101!


Here is a card I have made for Freshly Made Sketches #101. This sketch by Linda C. is very versatile and is a great starting point for many cards!

Here is the sketch……..

FMS Final 101-001

Now I have a problem! To be precise it is a twine collecting problem (come to think of it I have a paper and stamp collecting problem too!) I have so many spools, skeins and balls of it and yet I don’t seem to use it very often and when I do I hardly cut into the twine mountain……but I do love looking at it and stroking it!!

So I decided to create a twine rainbow on the main panel of this card. I then added a sentiment and a buton to accent.

Anyway here is my card…….

P1000465 2

Supplies; Card – PTI White, SU Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie, Bazzill Juicy Pear. Stamps – Paper Smooches Slang Gang. Ink – Versafine Onyx black. Twine – Various colours from Hemptique and The Twinery. button – Fancy Pants.

Off to Chillax!!

The sketch is by Lesley Croghan and here it is……

Sketch 1

I decided to go bit floral and a bit vintage with this one using some great stamps from Papertrey Ink – Rosie Posie  These are 2 step stamps and they produce a great dimensional look. And also one of my current favourite paper lines Vintage Bliss from Simple Stories.

Freshly made Sketches # 99


Today I have a card that I made for the latest challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

Lately I have been on a bit of a Halloween crafting Kick!………..It is one of my favourite holidays! So I couldn’t resist using the sketch to create another Halloween Card.

Here is the sketch by Rita………

FMS Final 99-001

And here is my card………



I just love all of the Halloween stamp sets from Paper Smooches so had to use another of these images, The cute little pumpkin for this card! I did a little basic Copic colouring and kept the rest of the card simple.

Supplies: Card – PTI White, Bazzill Liquorice. Patterned Papers – Doodlebug Haunted Manor 6×6 pad. Dies – SSS Tri-Square die. Stamps – Paper Smooches Hallowenies. Ink – Mementoo Tuxedo black, Versafine Onyx Black. Copic Markers YR16, YG23.

Freshly Made Sketches – Sketch # 97

Hello Again

Today I have a card I made for Freshly made Sketches # 97.

Here is the inspiration sketch for the card……

FMS Final 97-001

And here is my interpretation……..


As you can see I decided to make a silver wedding anniversary card using the sketch and some soft creams greys and silver. I love banners (possibly too much) so I loved the banner embellishment in the corner of the main panel on the sketch… oh and of course I found another couple of ways to add them also…….Must get help for my banner addiction!!

Supplies: Card – MFT Whip Cream. Patterned Paper – K & Co Elegance Shimmer Paper Collection and Making Memories Wedding Collection. Stamps – Clearly Besotted  Stamps Framed Sentiments. Ink – Versamark Clear. Embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Silver Embossing Powder. Dies – Paper Smooches Flag Tag Dies , MFT Fishtail Flag Stax and PTI By The Numbers Dies and Mats. Button from my stash. WR Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. Martha Stewart Mini Stamp Press. Fiskars Paper Trimmer.
