Rainbow Birthday Wishes — FMS522

We’re back with another new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week it comes from Colorado, courtesy of the very talented Kim Singdahlsen. Take a look at her fun sketch:

It’s about to be birthday week in our house with two of our children celebrating their birthdays next week. The first one up is my college daughter who has a Valentine’s birthday. She loves bright colors, especially yellow, so I wanted to make her a card that has happy colors. And since she was born on Valentine’s Day I also wanted to include some hearts on her card. And since I hadn’t used the Rainbow of Happiness suite and I thought it would work perfectly, it was an easy decision on what to use for her card.

I started with a sheet of the Sunshine and Rainbows dsp that has some tiny hearts. I love this paper collection, which is a free Sale-a-Bration offering. I then cut out the rainbow four times with the Brilliant Rainbows dies using different colors of cardstock. I stamped the little hearts from the coordinating Rainbow of Happiness stamp set onto a strip of Melon Mambo card stock. The sentiment is from the Special Moments stamp set, which is another Sale-a-Bration offering.

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.

Daffodils & Butterflies — FMS521

It’s already time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is our friend from upstate New York, Linda Callahan. Take a look at her fun sketch:

This sketch had me stumped for quite a while. But then I decided that I could use a stamped image for one of the strips in the sketch and not be such a stickler about following it exactly.

For the vertical strip, I decided to use a new stamp set, Daffodil Daydream. I stamped the daffodils and butterflies and colored them with my alcohol markers before cutting them out. I then adhered them to a piece of patterned vellum from the Vellum Layering Designs collection.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set, Special Moments, with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Driving by to Say Happy Birthday — FMS519

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is none other than our favorite captain, Jennifer Timko. Take a look at this fun sketch:

My birthday card stash has gotten really low and I’ve been wanting to play with the new Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Driving By. So I stamped one of the images on a piece of watercolor paper and used my aquapainter and ink pads to color this fun little sports car.

I added some clouds that I cut out using some dies from the Brilliant Rainbow Dies and added some Wink of Stella for some glittery fun.

The sentiment is from another Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Special Moments, which has a lot of fabulous sentiments.
