Hooray Hat — FMS383

We have a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches today, and we have a great one for you provided by our friend, Jen Mitchell.  Take a peek:

I was playing around with the Birthday Cheer stamp set and colored one of the party hats, thinking I could substitute it for the square focal image.  I colored it with markers.  I went with a color combo of Pool Party, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade.

The star dsp is from the Twinkle Twinkle dsp pack.  The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder.  I need to start working on graduation cards, and I thought this sentiment would work well for that occasion too.

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!

A Present for Your Birthday — FMS373

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our favorite Coloradan, Kim Singdahlsen, is our hostess.   She has a fun sketch for us.  Here’s a peek:

I needed to make some birthday cards, so I knew I wanted to use the Birthday Cheer stamp set.  I love the images in this set and I knew they’d be fun to color.

I colored the present with markers and totally goofed up when I made the strip that goes behind the focal image.  I cut a piece of polka-dot dsp from the Botanical Butterfly dsp collection, which is a Sale-a-Bration offering, with the intention of watercoloring three stripes of color on it — one in Bermuda Bay, one in Daffodil Delight, and one in Poppy Parade.  I had a long interruption between cutting it out and sitting down to color it, and I totally forgot my plan when I picked up my aquapainter.  I didn’t even realize I had forgotten my plan until I started this post and really looked at the sketch again.  Oops!

Be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team made, especially since they have all properly used the sketch this week.  And then make and post your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you create.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
