As promised, I’m back with a new layout from Freshly Made Sketches! This week’s sketch is courtesy of Linda Callahan of Stampin’ Seasons. What a great sketch. Last week’s response to the sketch was amazing and I’m so excited to see what you create this week.
Before I get to my card, I just have to tell you how much fun I had with Cindy Elam of Heart’s Delight Cards. She has the most fabulous stamp room and she gave me free run of it. Yippee! We made a card using the same sketch that you will see in an upcoming post. I love how two stampers can use the same layout to create such different cards.
Speaking of which, back to this week’s challenge. I wanted to try this print from the Twitterpated DSP after seeing some beautiful cards make with it and thought the little vase from Button Buddies would be a nice match. I think this set is really cool. The buttons are such a fun way to add texture. These are actually the Cajun Craze buttons but they look like Riding Hood Red next to the DSP. I tried a few different ribbon ideas before finally settling on the Basic Gray Taffeta (retired). The little sentiment is from Day of Gratitude punched with a 1 1/4″ circle punch.
This sketch has so many possibilities that I may try another card with it later this week. I’ll also post one of the cards I made at Cindy’s (the other two will be shown in upcoming SUO Challenges).
I’m so glad you dropped by today. As always the team has amazing cards for you so make sure you go see their beautiful creations. We welcome Narelle and Allisa as guest designers this month. What gorgeous examples they have made! Have a great day and see you soon!
