300 with Zest — FMS300

It’s time for another new sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week we are celebrating our 300th sketch challenge! Wow!  That’s a lot of sketches!  I feel like we just celebrated our 200th sketch, and now here we are at 300.  You don’t need to remind me that time flies.  My oldest is about to move over 600 miles away as he goes to college.  We are moving him into his dorm on Sunday. As I have been helping him pack all of the things he’ll be taking with him, I can’t help but wonder how we could be at this point in his life already.  I have shed some tears this week and I’m sure there will be plenty more shed as I make that 9 hour drive back home on Monday.  But he’s ready, even though I’m not.  Yep, time flies.

But back to our 300th Challenge.  We have a special prize for one lucky participant this week.  One random winner will receive all of the cards created by the design team using the sketch below.

I pulled out a stamp set I hadn’t used yet called Lemon Zest.  I love that it has a coordinating punch, which makes it so easy to use.  I paired it with some dsp and created a background with some embossing paste and a stencil.  You can see the supplies listed below.

I scooped out a little bit of embossing paste and mixed in one drop of So Saffron ink before spreading it over the stencil.  So easy!  And I love how quickly it dries.

We hope you’ll join us and play along with this special challenge this week.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration (and for one lucky winner).

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this card! The embossing paste is terrific in the background! Happy 300! Hope working on the next 100 will keep you busy while your son is at school! It’s a tough adjustment for sure …… But he’ll do great!

  2. I wondered how you got that little tint to the embossing paste. Great idea! I happen to be a big fan of lemons so I think this card is fabulous! I love the contrast from the black DSP too!

  3. Wowza Amy – couple of things impress right off the bat – the use of texture (which I wish I would do more of) and the black with a mimic on the pattern – all which makes the citrus really stand out. The shades you used are so subtle and gentle. Great card.

  4. Classically awesome Amy card! I love your prints and colors and of course the embossing paste texture. Thanks for all you do to make this team amazing!!
