Snowflake Greetings — FMS#313

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our favorite and talented New Zealander, Karren Johnson, is our hostess.  Someday, I am going to make it to New Zealand!  And when I do, I really hope Karren will agree to give me coloring and technique lessons, as she is amazing!  Take a look at the fun sketch she has for us:

I’m continuing with my Christmas card journey, though I have stepped away from the Seasonal Lantern stamp set this week.  Those circles made me think of snowflakes, and then it was easy from there.

I went with an unusual color combo for snowflakes and Christmas, for that matter.  I cut the snowflakes from Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum card stock, and some more from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using dies from Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

The sentiment was embossed with silver embossing powder and cut out with a Stitched Shapes Framelit die.  It is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.  Some fun sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment and sequin trim add a little shine.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love seeing what you create.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches website to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

From Our Family to Yours — FMS309

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

I have always wanted a Christmas sentiment that says, “From Our Family to Yours,” so when I saw one that says just that in the Snowflake Sentiments set, I knew I had to have it.  Have you ever bought an entire stamp set for just one sentiment?  Truth be told, I love all of the sentiments in this set, and I know I will use many of them, but I would have bought it anyways for just this one.

I paired this lovely sentiment (isn’t the font gorgeous!) with some Garden Green dsp from the Quilted Christmas pack.  A scrap of black Merry Music dsp was added as well.  I used a bit of Real Red ribbon and one of the Stitched Felt Embellishments to finish things off.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
