Well it’s a new year and we’re back with a new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our hostess is CAS card maker extraordinaire, Jen Mitchell. Take a look at this fun sketch:
I hadn’t made a slim line card in a long time, so I was excited to see this sketch. My card base is 8-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. I thought I’d make a Valentine’s card and since I don’t have any of the new mini catalog products yet, I pulled out an older set that’s in the annual catalog, Heartfelt.
I started by stamping the arrows in different colors of ink and punched out the large heart from a piece of dsp from the Playing with Patterns collection. The smaller hearts were stamped and embossed with an image from the Heartfelt stamp set.
The sentiment was die-cut using a die from the Word Wishes collection. And the word stamps are from the Well Said stamp set.
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!
It’s time for our last sketch for the month of January at Freshly Made Sketches. Yes, we’ve almost completed the first month of the year and February is just around the corner. Our hostess this week is the talented and lovely Jennifer Timko, and she has a fun one for us. Take a look:
I decided I’d better get busy with making some Valentines since it is getting close to that time. I love the whole From My Heart suite in the mini catalog, and decided to go the easy route with some little Valentine cards to stick in gifts for that day.
This is a little 3″ x 3″ card. I started by stamping and embossing the arrow. I then used the two coordinating heart punches in the Heart Punch Pack to punch out the scalloped heart on the bottom layer and the pretty patterned heart on the top layer from two sheets of the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. These papers have pretty foil accents in pink and red.
The sentiment is from another stamp set called Flourishing Phrases. I added a little bow made with white twine and called it a day.
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 for some inspiration from the design team.
