Oh, we had a fun time celebrating our 500th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches last week — a fabulous gallery, prizes and so many supportive comments! Thank you to everyone who participated in one way or another! With that milestone achieved, it’s time to work on another. This week’s hostess, our favorite Coloradoan, Kim Singdahlsen, has a great sketch to get us started. Take a look:
There are some really cute products in the current Sale-a-Bration offering. One of the first ones on my list was the Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. It is designed to coordinate with the Penguin Place bundle in the holiday mini catalog.
I started this card using a blending brush to apply some Misty Moonlight ink onto a white piece of card stock. Some splatters were added ( I think I got more of the white acrylic paint in my hair than on the paper ) and I cut it out with a die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies collection.
The sweet bear was cut out of the dsp with my paper snips and popped up with dimensionals. I stamped the balloon and sentiments with stamps from the Penguin Place stamp set. The striped dsp is also from the Penguin Playmates dsp collection.
While this suite is perfectly suited for holiday cards, it’s also cute for other occasions!
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 made for your inspiration!
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
