Fall Dahlia Healing Thoughts– FMS502

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is our favorite clean card making Canadian stamper extraordinaire, Jen Brum. Take a look at her fun sketch:

I thought the focal panel on this sketch would be big enough to showcase the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. It is one of the current Sale-a-Bration offerings, so if you don’t have it yet you’d better hurry and get it (for free!).

My mother-in-law has not been doing well the past couple of weeks, and because the hospitals here are full with so many Covid cases it has been hard for her to get into the hospital to get the care she needs. She was finally admitted yesterday and I wanted to make a card for her to hopefully brighten her day just a little bit.

I stamped the images and cut them out with my paper snips. I then arranged them on a piece of card stock that was cut with the Stitched Greenery die. A Cajun Craze scalloped edge was cut using a die from the Scalloped Contours dies. The sentiment is from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set and was embossed with white embossing powder. The dsp on the card base is from the Harvest Meadow collection.

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!

Red Dahlia –FMS497

Hello, August! I can’t believe I’m saying that already! School starts next week here, and my older two kids will be moving into new digs over the next couple of weeks. That means a couple of trips to Atlanta and Ann Arbor are coming up fast for me. Busy days! But it’s all good! Speaking of good, our hostess at Freshly Made Sketches is the amazing Jacquie Southas, who I believe has also been helping her daughter resettle to a new home far away. Take a look at her fun sketch:

There’s a new catalog and Sale-a-Bration offering on the block this week! When I saw the sketch, I knew this big new flower in the Delicate Dahlias stamp set would be perfect to fill up some of the white space. It’s a Sale-a-Bration set, so that means it’s free with a qualifying order.

I started this card by running the Stitched Greenery die through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. It’s a cool die plate that is like an embossing folder, but instead cuts stitched leaves onto your cardstock.

I then added some strips of black and white paper from the Pattern Party collection. The flower and leaves were stamped with Memento black ink and then stamped with Poppy Parade and Old Olive inks. I love that you can choose to color in the flowers on your own or you can use the stamps to do it. I went the easy route this time and used the stamps. I then cut them out with my paper snips.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set and was cut out using a die from the Harvest dies, which is a collection in the new mini catalog.
