Freshly Made Sketches #86- a sketch by Amy

 Freshly Made Sketches #86:

Here is my take on the sketch:

My base card is Melon Mambo. I used one of Stampin' up's single stamps, Woo-hoo, and heat embossed it with Melon Mambo embossing powder. I added a strip of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP and a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock punched with the scallop edge border. I tied Pacific Point stitched grosgrain ribbon around it and matted it with Pacific Point cardstock.

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Woo-hoo
Cardstock- Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point
DSP- Sunshine & Sprinkles
Ink- Versamark
Other- Melon Mambo embossing powder, Heat tool,, Pacific Point stitched grosgrain ribbon, Scalloped edge border punch

Freshly Made Sketches #85- a sketch by Narelle

Today’s card is my take on Freshly Made Sketches #85- a sketch from Narelle.

I went pretty minimalist with my card.

The base of the card is Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment with Midnight Muse onto Whisper White and cut it out using a framelit from Apothecary Accents and the Big Shot. I cut 3/4" strips of Designer Series Paper and notched out the end to create the banner look. I added Midnight Muse Dahlias with glue dots and adhered it all to the base card. Super easy!!

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set-  Layered Labels
Cardstock- Whisper White
DSP- Patio Party
Ink- Midnight Muse
Other- Apothecary Accents Framelits, Dahlias

Paper Players #144- Mother's day theme from Anne Marie

This week's Paper Player's challenge is a theme challenge- Mother's day.

This is the card my mother will be getting next weekend.

The base card is Chocolate Chip cardstock, layered with my beloved Baja Breeze cardstock. I am so bummed out that it is retiring this year. On Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the label stamp from Everything Eleanor using Baja Breeze ink. I stamped that same image on a scrap piece of cardstock and cut it out. Using repositionable adhesive, I stuck it directly on top of the image I stamped on the Very Vanilla. I stamped the swirl using Chocolate Chip right on top of the two labels. When you remove the top label, it now looks like you stamped the swirl behind the label, which is also known as masking. I then used a stamp from Layered Labels, stamped it with Chocolate Chip on a piece of Very Vanilla, and cut it out using the Apothecary Accents framelits and the big shot. I adhered it to the Baja Breeze label using dimensionals. I stamped happy mother's day from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set with Chocolate Chip on a piece of Very vanilla and punched it out with large oval punch and adhered it to the label using dimensionals. I tied a piece of Chocolate Chip retired ribbon on the bottom and adhered it to the Baja Breeze layer. 

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
stamp set- Everything Eleanor, Layered Labels, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock- Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Ink- Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze 
Other- Retired Chocolate Chip ribbon, Large oval punch, Apothecary Accents Framelits

Freshly Made Sketches #84- a sketch by Linda S.

Ever since I got the 7/8 inch cotton ribbon from SU!, I've wanted to stamp on it. I don't know what I was waiting for, but I did think it was perfect for this sketch.

The base of the card is Very Vanilla card stock. I used the Tea for Two designer series paper. I used a strip of Soft Suede cardstock to highlight the ribbon. The sentiment is from the Oh, hello set and is stamped with Calypso Coral on the cotton ribbon.

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
stamp set- Oh, Hello
Cardstock- Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Designer Series Paper- Tea for Two
