Freshly Made Sketches #91

 Freshly Made Sketches #91 -a sketch from Cindy

Here is my take on her sketch:

This is a pretty simplistic card. The stamp set I used is a two step set. I stamped the fuller image with Crisp Cantaloupe, but stamped it off first to make it lighter. I then stamped over that image with the more detailed stamp using Calypso Coral. I cut that image out and added it to the stem using dimensionals. The large scallop border was embossed using the Delicate Designs embossing folder.  I stamped a sentiment on a 3/4 inch piece of Whisper White, notched out the side to create a banner look and adhered it with dimensionals

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Field Flowers, Sweet Essentials
Cardstock- Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Ink- Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Other- Large Scallop Edgelits, Delicate Designs Embossing folder

Fab Friday #20

The challenge for Fab Friday #20 is to use all of the new in colors. They are so gorgeous, and I love them all! Even so, I don't usually use 5 colors on a card, so it really was a challenge.

Fab Friday 20, the new In-Colors

Here is my take on the sketch:

I stamped the image with Baked Brown Sugar and then colored the flowers with Strawberry Slush and Crisp Cantaloupe. The leaves are colored with Pistachio Pudding. The sentiment is stamped with Coastal Cabana and Viola, I used all of the 2013-2014 in colors!

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Apothecary Art
Cardstock- Very Vanilla
DSP- Afternoon Tea
Ink- Baked Brown Sugar classic ink, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding markers

Freshly Made Sketches #90

I rarely make square cards, so I had to go out of my comfort zone this week.

Freshly Made Sketches #90, a sketch from Linda…
Here is my take on this week's sketch:

It might be a little hard to see in the photo, but I embossed the Smoky Slate cardstock with the new Wildflower Meadow embossing folder.  I inked the matching Wildflower Meadow background stamp with markers. I stamped a sentiment from the hostess set Banner Greetings and cut it out before adhering it to the card.

Freshly Made Sketches #89

I had a hard time coming up with something this week. I really wanted to use some of Stampin' Up's new products, but my shipment has not arrived yet! I still have to wait until Tuesday to get them. I did come up with something though.

 Freshly Made Sketches #89, a sketch from Rita:

Here is my take on the sketch:

My card base is Crumb Cake. I used the new Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper for the background and strung some linen thread around it before adhering it to the Crumb cake.The sentiment is from the new set Really Good Greetings and I stamped it with Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla. I matted it to Crumb Cake and added Calypso Coral and Soft Suede banners. I did die cut them with the Bitty Banners framelits to ensure they were all uniform. 

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Really Good Greetings
Cardstock- Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral
DSP- Epic Day This and That

Fab Friday 19

I've been wanting to play with some of the products from the new Stampin' up catalog. Today I got to! I tried some out for the Fab Friday sketch.

I used the new Gingham Garden Designer Series paper for my take on the sketch:

The card base is Island Indigo. I punched 2 Daffodil Delight flowers using the fancy flower punch. I stamped the center piece with Island Indigo using a stamp from the Mixed Bunch set. I added a few basic rhinestones to the center for some bling. I stamped the sentiment with Island Indigo and notched the end off of the cardstock using the 1" square punch to create a banner look. Super easy!!

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Mixed Bunch, Bring on the cake
Cardstock- Island Indigo, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight

Freshly Made Sketches #88

I ended up skipping last week's FMS #87 because of Memorial day. I hadn't intended too, but didn't get back from my trip to Duluth in time to complete it.

Here is this week's sketch:  Freshly Made Sketches #88 from Jen M

Here is my take on the sketch: 

I started with a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Perfect Plum cardstock. I folded a 4 x 10 1/2 piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it to the Perfect Plum. The strip of Perfect Plum is from the Subtles Designer Series paper stack (now retired). I matted it with a piece of Perfect Plum. I used Perfect Plum and Old Olive markers to ink up the flower from the Love & Sympathy stamp set. I matted the Very Vanilla with Perfect Plum and added a strip of Old Olive that I punched with the eyelet punch (also retired). I added my sentiment and it's all done!

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Love & Sympathy
Cardstock- Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
DSP- Subtles DSP pack (retired)
