A Big Birthday Cone — FMS257

We’re ready with another sketch for you over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week the fabulous Jen Mitchell is our hostess.  Take a look at what she has for us:

fms-final-257-001I love this sketch!   You can use so many different images with this.  I ended up keeping my card very true to the sketch and made a birthday card because I never seem to have enough of those.

Rather than feature a birthday cake, I decided to make a birthday ice cream card.   I do love cake, but ice cream would be my preferred birthday treat.  I chose to make a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone for this card.  I can never decide which is my favorite flavor — chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, strawberry… I always have the hardest time deciding which flavor to get at the store.  This isn’t helped by the fact that all three of my children have different favorites too.  What is your favorite flavor?

big-birthday-coneI used the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set and coordinating Wish Big Framelits dies.  The color scheme is Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso.

The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

big-birthday-cone-close-upThis was a quick and easy card to make.  The hardest part was choosing the flavor!  🙂

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

A Big Piece of Cake — FMS246

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week the very talented Rita Wright is our hostess.  Look at what she has made for us:

I recently got a new set called Biggest Birthday Ever, and I couldn’t wait to ink it up.  I had to take a few creative liberties with the sketch, but I hope you can still see the sketch in my card.

Big Birthday CakeI started this card by stamping the cake with Daffodil Delight ink.  The cake layers were stamped with Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Blushing Bride, and Tangerine Tango.  The plate was stamped with Pool Party.

Big Birthday Cake Close upThis bundle is so fun!   I am looking forward to playing with some of the other images in the set.  I make more birthday cards than any other type of card, so it’s good to have another birthday themed set.  However, there are other images in the set that can be used for occasions other than birthdays.

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card this week!  We love to see what you create!  Meanwhile, be sure to jump on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team created for a huge dose of inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
