Poinsettia Blessings — FMS515

We’re back with another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our sketch comes all the way from New Zealand. The oh-so-talented coloring and ink blending star on our team, Karren Johnson, has a great sketch for us. Take a look:

I hadn’t used the Merriest Moments stamp set yet and thought that a strip of poinsettia blooms would work well as the horizontal strip on the card. So I stamped the blooms several times on a piece of white card stock and some of the greenery as well. I then cut them out with my paper snips.

A piece of Heartwarming Hugs dsp was added to the bottom of the card base and then the flowers and greenery were arranged on top. The sentiment is from the Happy Holly-Days 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.

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July — FMS495

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week it is my privilege to provide the sketch for the week. Take a look:

I’ve seen so many people posting Christmas in July creations this month, so I decided to join in. This card is also full of sneak peeks of new products in the upcoming Holiday catalog which comes out in just a couple of weeks.

I started with a new embossing folder, the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder, which isn’t really a Christmas theme, but I thought it fit in with the rustic look. I embossed some of the new Kraft paper, which I love!

I then stamped some of the different images from the Christmas season stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

The sentiment is from another new stamp set called Merriest Moments. I love the gorgeous sentiments in this set! I added some new Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots and linen thread as embellishments.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you create 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.
