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!
Whew!! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on this blog! It’s been a while since I’ve stamped! With making a trip to Atlanta to help my son get moved into his new apartment as he starts his new job after college, and then driving to Michigan and back to help my daughter move out of her apartment and get settled into her new place for school, it has been a very busy month! Though moving is hard work and not very fun, I treasured the time I got to spend with these two. And I’m so glad I got back just in time to participate in Freshly Made Sketches’ 500th challenge!! What a milestone! I am so thrilled to be a part of this team of such wonderful ladies! They are a true blessing in my life and inspire me with not only their incredible stamping talents, but also with the love and friendship they have provided me over the years.
There are some fun prizes associated with this challenge so make sure you stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what you can win. Our hostess this week is our favorite upstate New Yorker, Linda Callahan. Take a look at this fun sketch:
I wanted to play with the Nature’s Harvest stamp set again, and I thought it would work perfectly with the sketch.
I stamped and colored the image before cutting it out with the coordinating die. I then cut out a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I added some splatters of Misty Moonlight and Cajun Craze ink and some splatters of watered down white acrylic paint.
The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder and is from the same 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 and learn how to snag one of the terrific prizes we have to celebrate this 500th sketch!

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop! We are a group of stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.
Here’s another sneak peek of some products in the upcoming Holiday mini catalog. It features the Harvest Meadow suite.
I started by stamping the flowers and coloring them with my alcohol markers. There is a coordinating die that I used to cut them out. Using a die from the Scalloped Contours dies, I cut out a frame of Misty Moonlight card stock.
The three strips under the focal panel are from the Harvest Meadow dsp collection. It is such pretty paper! I placed some strips of 3/8″ Diamond Weave Ribbon on top of the dsp.
A piece of Crumb Cake card stock was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.
This card was inspired by the fun sketch over at The Paper Players:
