These holiday weeks always mess me up. So even though it doesn’t feel like a Wednesday after our U.S. holiday on Monday, it is and that means it’s time for another new sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site. And this week, our fearless Canadian friend, Jen Brum, is our hostess. I had to point out that she’s fearless because she has included an element on her sketch that used to send her into a panic. A circle!! Either Jen has overcome her phobia or else she has decided to face her fear and conquer it. I am proud of her!
One of my very favorite sets in the new Holiday Catalog is the Cookie Cutter Halloween set. As if this set isn’t awesome enough solely based on its cute images, there is also a coordinating punch that goes with it. And to make it even better, there is a Christmas themed set called (you guessed it) Cookie Cutter Christmas. I love it when there are multiple sets that coordinate with a punch!
I started this one by pulling out a favorite embossing folder from last year, Woodland. I then made my square background with a piece of Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP. I love houndstooth patterns, and this pack has two different colors.
I really wanted to us a Fall-themed sentiment, but couldn’t find one in my sets. So I just made one using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.
Some fun accents — Copper Metallic Thread, Rich Razzleberry ribbon, an In-color doily and Brights Enamel Shapes were added as finishing touches.
We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you create. Meanwhile, hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site and see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
