It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is our creative and talented friend, Jacquie Southas. Take a look at this fun sketch:
This card started out with the sentiment. I wanted to make a card for my college daughter and thought this stamp would be perfect. Since today is the first day of Fall, I decided to go with that theme as well.
I started by masking off a rectangle with washi tape and then blended some inks to create the background. I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut it out with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. Some leaves and the acorn were punched out of a piece of dsp from the Gilded Autumn dsp collection with the coordinating punches. Some Gilded Gems were added as embellishments.
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 stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration!
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
