Gather Thanks — FMS404

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week it is my pleasure to serve as the hostess.

Fall is such a short season where I live.  Summer is LONG…  So even though it doesn’t feel like Fall here yet, I want to play with my Fall stamps.  I love Fall and all of the Fall products, so I guess I just need to light a pumpkin scented candle and turn the A/C down to make it even cooler in the house and maybe I can fool myself into feeling like it’s Fall.  😉

I started by die-cutting some leaves using the Gathered Leaves dies.  I took a tip from the Holiday catalog and spritzed my card stock with water before die-cutting the leaves.  I think it added a little depth and a little color variation.  I stamped the pumpkin from Gather Together with Cajun Craze ink and then colored it in with my alcohol markers.

The paper is from the Come to Gather dsp pack.  The card stock is Very Vanilla.


We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to see what the design team has created for your inspiration at the Freshly Made Sketches site.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love your card – just gorgeous! And just when I didn’t think I needed that paper pack. Wonder if I’m the only one who buys a pack of paper for “that one” design!

  2. Wow! This card is just gorgeous Amy! I love all things fall (though it’s totally starting to feel like fall here) and this card is one of the things I love! Those leaves are just gorgeous and I love the texture! So perfect!

  3. This is beautiful. I love the gray paper you used for the background and the fun layering on the sentiment block. GREAT take on the sketch!
