FMS315 by Jen Timko | Be Merry Stamp Set and Dies by WPlus9, Chameleon Pens, Wood Textures DSP by Stampin' UpHappy middle of the week to you!!  I hope you are having a great one so far.  Today’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch is one that is sure to inspire.  The lovely Amy O’Neill has given us one that can be used in so many ways!  Love it!

When I saw the oval in the sketch, my brain immediately went to this sentiment from WPlus9.  I love it as a focal point and it gets to be the star of the show.  I stamped it in Versamark ink and embossed with Wow Bright White Embossing Powder.  The coordinating dies make quick work of cutting it out.  The little flower and foliage images are super fun to use as accents.  I stamped them in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and the colored using Chameleon Pens.  I thought the black sentiment would be great against a wood grain background so I turned to this Wood Textures DSP by Stampin’ Up.  I cut it using the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Finally I added some Basic Pearls to the flower centers after coloring them with a Sharpie marker.

I hope you have a great time with the sketch this week.  I’m working hard to finish up my holiday cards.  Christmas card-a-palooza, if you will.  I’ll share some of those in the next few weeks.  Thank you so much for dropping in today.  See you again soon!

FMS310 by Jen Timko | Be Merry Stamp Set and Dies by WPlus9, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringHappy Wednesday!!  We have a fabulous new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  The incredible Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch hostess this week and you are just going to fall in love!

It seems that traditional colors are the way I’m leaning this year on my Christmas cards.  I remain obsessed with this Be Merry DSP from Stampin’ Up and I added on this speckled woodgrain print from Coffee Break DSP (also SU).  I think the prints work really well together!  I kept this pretty simple and used one of my go-to Christmas sentiments from the Be Merry Stamp Set by WPlus9.  The little flower and holly leaves are from the same set and I did some quick Copic coloring.  The sentiment is from the Be Merry Stamp Set from WPlus9 and it is one of my favorites again this year.  It is stamped in Early Espresso ink to match the woodgrain paper.  To create all the rectangles, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies by Simon Says Stamp.

I’m trying to get a little more serious about my holiday cards so I think you can expect to see more of those in the upcoming weeks.  Make sure you stop over to say hi to the team at Freshly Made Sketches.  They have created wonderful projects this week!  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you soon.

FMS308 by Jen Timko | Poinsettia Stamp by Simon Says Stamp, Be Merry Stamp and Dies by WPlus9, Be Merry DSP by Stampin' Up, Copic ColoringI am so happy to be able to share another great sketch with you today! The amazing Rita Wright is our sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and she has one that will be fun for lots of interpretations.  Rita always has the most incredible coloring and that inspired me to pull out my Copics for today.

I love this Poinsettia stamp from Simon Says Stamp and I wanted to try to make it a white version.  (Red would have been pretty for this card too.)  Coloring white is always hard so I played around to see if I could do it.  On the flower I started with my light Toner Gray markers (T0, T2).  While I liked the look, I decided that I needed a little more color to make the flower look realistic.  So I added in a little bit of G20.  I think over all it turned out pretty.  The leaves from the set set were colored with a combination of green markers (G20, G24, YG61, YG17, YG67).  To add just a little more color to the card, I used this pretty Be Merry DSP from Stampin’ Up.  Love those speckles on the paper!  The sentiment and banner are from the Be Merry Stamp Set and Dies from WPlus9.  Finally, I thought I needed a little “something”, so I added some pearls to mimic the patten on the paper.

I have been busily stamping this week and getting ready to a new release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  You can expect lots of fun next week!  Until then, I hope you have a good week.  See you soon!

FMS298 by Jen Timko | Be Merry Stamp Set and Dies by WPlus9, Copic ColoringHello friends!!  Sorry about the long break.  Pesky work and fun summer activities have gotten in the way over the last couple of weeks and I haven’t had any real time in the stamp room.  GASP!!!  So what to do when presented with a great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches?  When it is a million degrees outside in July?  Create the first Christmas card of the year, of course!  I love this sketch by the witty and fabulous Linda Callahan.

As soon as I saw this one, I started pondering a meandering group of images on the diagonal.  Somehow, these pretty little leaves and flowers practically jumped out of the stamp collection and a Christmas card was born.  I stamped the images from WPlus9’s Be Merry in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers using traditional colors.  Something about the pops of red and green against the white base really made me happy.  I confess that the sentiments in this stamp set are what drew me in and I LOVE this one.

Well, I’m back to my previously scheduled chaos.  On the agenda today….back to school clothes shopping.  For a rising high schooler and a rising middle schooler.  Pray for me.  *smile*  Make sure you check out the inspiration from the team and I can’t wait to see how you interpret this sketch!  Have a great day!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Be Merry (WPlus9); Paper:  Thick Whisper White (SU); Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers; Accessories: Big Shot, Be Merry Dies (WPlus9)), Mini Dimensionals, Misti
