Tag: freshly made sketches


Today is a good day as I was playing with a very pretty Hostess stamp set called Background Bits(144029CM 144026WM).

This stamp set has 8 images that includes two greetings but  I chose to use a greeting from the Sale-A-Bration set, Heartfelt Blooms.

I started with this great card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the rest just came together.

The bundle of flowers at the bottom were coloured with the “direct to stamp” technique using the Berry Bliss and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then, I added a mat in Berry Bliss for a little pop on the white card.  It’s a simple and pretty way to send off a thank you!

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

I believe in magic – do you?  What better way to pay homage to magic than the Magical Day Bundle that’s available on page 37 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

I love that pretty little unicorn (which says magic better than anything in my opinion) and she was easy to cut out using the Magical Mates Framelits dies that match perfectly with this whole magical bundle!

I started off with the great card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and could not resist adding the silver frame with one of the designs from the Myths & Magic Washi Tape bundle.

Check out this sketch and keep it for your own creative inspiration.

Here’s the list of products that I used for today’s magical card.

Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!


Today’s card is a tribute to the men in our life with some “manly” hearts done up in Powder Pink.  That’s cool – right?

And….there’s a couple of blue hearts there too!  I started off with the great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and went from there.  Using the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer paper with a light blue touch adds that traditional masculine feel.

Here’s the sketch that I started with in case you’d like to use it yourself.

I’m adding today’s card to the Feb 6th class line-up so make sure that you are Signed up to join in.

Happy Stamping!


Happy day to you and welcome to today’s adore you card!

I played around with the Brilliant Red and Moss Green crystals from the Brusho® Crystal Colour collection to get this cool look.

The first step was to spread water over the shimmery white piece of cardstock with an Aqua Painter and then sprinkle the red crystals.  After that I sprinkled the green crystals and used our Stampin’ Spritzer to help spread the colours.  I was impatient, so used the Heat Tool to dry it and then added that beautiful rose image from the Graceful Garden stamp set with those sweet tiny hearts from the Heart Happiness set that’s in the Occasions Catalogue.

The entire layout for this card came from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.  Here’s a look at the sketch.

And, here’s the full list of the products that I used.

Here’s to a great week and Happy Stamping!


New Year’s Eve is right around the corner – are you going out to celebrate?  If you are you might like to take a card like this to your host.

It’s pretty simple and was created using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Amazing You and matching Celebrate You Thinlits(also a Free Sale-A-Bration item).  The Iridescent Sequins are meant to show bubbles or maybe some confetti:)

I followed along with the simple sketch layout from Freshly Made Sketches for this which made the choice of stamp set much easier.

Here’s a list of everything I used so you can add some of these to your New Year shopping list.

Happy Stamping!


Today’s card shows the dragon image from the Magical Day stamp set and is the perfect birthday card for my daughter.

She has never lost her love for dragons so I’m pretty sure that she will love this card.  Following along with Freshly Made Sketches

made it easy to add some new papers that are coming your way in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  The stamp set and matching papers are truly magical and fun to work with.  I had fun using our Stampin’ Blends to colour that “ferocious” dragon and those flashes of flames!

Here’s the list of products for you,  Please remember that the stamp set, Designer paper and glimmer paper won’t be available to purchase until January 3, 2018. 

Thanks so much for visiting and Happy Stamping to you.


It many seem a little too soon, but I have something new to show you today!

This card was created with a new stamp set bundle and matching designer paper that’s coming in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue!  As you can tell, it’s tailored for the men and is really, really cute and I thought that it would fit in well the the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!

I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide and used some new corduroy ribbon that’s in the Occasions Catalogue as well.  I can’t show you the stamp set yet, but I’m sure that you will love it when you receive your catalogue in the mail.

Take care and Happy Stamping to you!


Have you noticed the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set that’s on page 116 of the Annual Catalogue?  I haven’t used it for quite a while so pulled it out to add this cute Reindeer to today’s card!

 I started with a card base of Real Red embossed with the Holly Embossing Folder and went from there so I could play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This stamp set has a matching Punch to make it easier to cut out all of the cute images in the set.
