Freshly Made Sketches 132


Hi Stampers, Jen B from freshly made sketches  DT has created a lovely design template this week. I wanted to keep my card clean and simply, so I used a flower from Stampin’ Up’s Flower Shop stamp set. A little brad and some twine added a little touch of elegance. The colours used were Sahara Sand and Elegant Eggplant. I just love how these colours work well together. I’m heading to Melbourne for Stampin’ Up’s annual convention in May and have been using the various card challenges for some inspiration.

 Happy Stampin!

Freshly Made Sketches # 131

Hi Stampers,  freshly made sketches  have come up with a twist in this weeks challenge to keep it clean-lined and fresh! So for this challenge I used the Happy Watercolour Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! as I thought it fitted the brief and is  one of my favourites stamp sets. I stamped the splash of paint stamp from the set three times 
without reinking it. I’m right into the rustic feel at the moment and think the colours worked well together while creating a clean- line. I also added a touch of scripted in crumb cake which is a little tip I learnt from my very talented Up-Line Teneale Williams.  I really loved making this card and for a "little twist" of my own I added the Candy Dots to the centre of each flower. I kept the sentiment very simple with a little thanks!

Just Add Ink # 209 - Just Add Layers

Hello everyone,  
The Just Add Ink challenge this week is all about layers and I love it! For those who don't know me, I really struggle to create a single layered card, so found this challenge exciting. It truly got my creative juices flowing at last. I actually lost count as to how many layers I used but I think it was about 7 or 8. I started out using Crumb cake as my card base and it grew from there. The Stamp Sets I used are Stampin'Up! Baby, We've Grown & Tape it. I also used their Embossing Folders - Alphabet Press & Stripes. I just love how their products co-ordinates with each other.


I encourage you to play along with JAI challenges as they are a great way to help you get creative and it's really lots of fun!

Ps: The adorable Baby, We've Grown stamp set comes from the current catalogue that finishes at the end of june, so if you would like to purchase it jump over to my shop online to order!

Happy stampin! x
