Thanks a Bunch — FMS571

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess, the incredible Jen Mitchell from Massachusetts, has a fun one for us. Take a look:

The Thanks a Bunch stamp set is a current Sale-a-Bration offering, and to be honest, I probably wouldn’t have gotten it if it wasn’t free. But I’m glad I chose it because it is a fun set. I created a card that has a summery feel, which is kind of ironic since we are iced in for the next couple of days here.

I paired the carrots, which were made with two-step stamping, with some of the Dandy Designs dsp. I love this paper and it is another free 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 brows 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!

A Cute Hoot — FMS570

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is our favorite pilot and card-maker extraordinaire, Jennifer Timko. Take a look at her fun and classic sketch:

I hadn’t used the new Sale-a-Bration set, Adorable Owls yet and I thought one of the cuties would fit perfectly in the focal circle of the sketch.

I colored the owl with some alcohol markers and then paired him with some dsp from the Flowers & More collection, which is a hostess offering in the mini catalog. Tahitian Tide is one of the current year In-Colors, and I think this may be the first time I’ve used it. I really like it paired with Mango Melody.

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.

Piñata Fiesta — FMS567

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2023 is treating you well so far. We have a new sketch to start the new year off over at Freshly Made Sketches, and it is my pleasure to provide it this week. Take a look:

I had some new goodies from the mini-catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure, which will be available starting tomorrow and I was determined to use some of them with this sketch. There is a cute new set out from Erica Cerwin, called Taco Fiesta, and it was one of the first sets that went on my pre-order. I love the fun images. Since all of the images are fairly small, I knew this set would work with the circles in the sketch.

I stamped the candy and confetti multiple times on some white circles and then colored them with alcohol markers. The piñata was stamped, colored and cut out for the focal circle. And the sentiment was embossed on a piece of black card stock. Everything was placed on a Balmy Blue card base.

The fun dsp is from a Sale-a-Bration offering called Dandy Designs. It is free with a $100 order and I love all of the colors and patterns in this pretty paper.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! I am looking forward to seeing how everyone uses the sketch. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
