Freshly Made Sketches #146- A sketch by Amy

I'm not sure if craftiness is a genetic predisposition or a learned trait, but my kids sure latch on to every new fad that comes around. I've been ironing perler bead creations all day! I'm sure their latest obsession will end up collecting dust, just like their rainbow looms, but it's fun to see their creative juices flowing. Sorting about 16,000 beads by color wasn't much fun though!  It may have inspired my monochrome look for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Here is my take on the sketch:

I did have to throw the flower in to break the monochrome up a bit, and make it a little fun.

Cardstock- Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Hello Honey

Freshly Made Sketches #145- A sketch by Narelle

It's been hard to find time to get crafty lately. We've had stretch of really great weather in Minnesota, so I feel like I should do things with my kids outside instead of working away in my craft room. Luckily, my husband took them out for awhile today, so I got busy with a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Here is my take on the sketch:

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp sets:Endless Birthday Wishes, Oh My Goodies
Cardstock- Whisper White
Designer Series Paper-
Ink- Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake
Other-Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon, Bermuda Bay taffeta ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Deco Labels framelits, Large Oval punch

My family had a pretty low key 4th of July weekend, so I was able to get into my craft room and play around a bit. For this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge, I originally was going to do a 4th of July card, but I veered from that track and went floral.

Stamp sets: Work of Art, A Dozen Thoughts, Stippled Blossoms
Cardstock- Whisper White, Smoky Slate
Designer Series Paper-
Ink- Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, Mossy Meadow

We recommend using Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock with your Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, but choosing any one of our cardstocks will add a unique look to your project. And because traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training, we've developed a few videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone! You can visit to view them
