A Heart Full of Flowers — FMS320

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our favorite Rocky Mountain resident, Kim Singdahlsen, is our hostess.  She has a fun sketch that is perfect to get you inspired to start creating Valentines, or it can be used for a variety of other purposes with a little creativity.  Take a look at the sketch:


I adore the hearts in the Heart Happiness set, and the floral heart is my favorite so I decided that I needed to use it first.  I stamped it with Memento ink and then colored it with Stampin’ Blends markers.  A Pink Pirouette heart is an added layer between the focal heart and the the doily.  The sentiment is from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.

Square cards are so fun, and I love how the sketch has the focal image cropped off of the side.

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.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.  We even have a special guest designer, Teresa Kline, joining us and you will love her card.  We are so excited to have her on board.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

An Eclectic Valentine — FMS223

This is my week to be the hostess over at Freshly Made Sketches, and I really hope you’ll like the sketch and play along.  I have been having fun designing collage-style cards lately, so that is how I designed the sketch.

And since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to make another card for the occasion.  I pulled out my Groovy Love stamp set, and then just kept pulling more and more sets off the shelf.  I think I ended up using an eclectic mix of four stamp sets.  I was out of control!

Be Mine eclectic mix fullI started by making a watercolor wash on some watercolor paper using Pink Pirouette and Pool Party inks.  Once that was dry, I stamped the row of hearts from Birthday Blooms and the row of sideways chevrons from You’re So Lovely with Melon Mambo ink, and added some washi tapes.

Be Mine eclectic mixThe focal heart is from Groovy Love and was stamped with Melon Mambo ink.  The pretty yellow circle on the layer beneath it is from You’re So Lovely and was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink.

The sentiment is from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and was embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss powder on Basic Black card stock.

I hope you’ll play along and create your own card with the sketch!  I love seeing how other people interpret the sketch and use it in their own ways.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site and see what the rest of the design team made.  You’ll be wowed by their creativity!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
