I’m always so happy when it is Wednesday. Because Wednesdays are Freshly Made Sketches day! Jen Mitchell is our hostess this week and she has such a fun sketch for us. The team has shown all kinds of clever ways to use it so I know you’ll find it great to try!
When Cindy Schuster created her adorable card for last week’s Artisan hop, I knew I wanted to use the technique with the fringed tissue. Everything on this card but the stamp is from the Celebrations Add-On Kit from the Occasions Catalog. Yes, it is intended to be an add on for the banners but I just needed to made it into a card! I’m so in love with these prints and colors! The papers are double sided so the Smoky Slate you see on the card is the back side of the Calypso Coral polka dots. For the tissue, I cut it to length (there is a sticky strip already attached) and the filled my spritzer (in the kit) with regular old rubbing alcohol and Calypso Coral reinker. Spritzed, let it dry a bit and then spritzed again. Once the paper had dried (really, let it dry…I started too early), use the Fringe Scissors to cut the tissue. It curls up like this on its own because of the coloring. Cool! The sentiment is from Simply Celebrate and fits perfectly on this tag piece. I “destuck” the tag a bit by putting it on my jeans a few times and then used Dimensionals to pop it up. I like the kit so much that I used it for another card today. It will be a bit before I can post that one though. *smile*
While I completely love all the kits that Stampin’ Up has been creating when they are used as advertised, I really love that they can be used in different ways. It makes them even more of a deal! And I love a deal! Ok…time for you to check out the fabulousness from the design team. There is so much to love!

Very cool technique, Jen! Love those little fringes blowin’ in the wind! And I love that color combo too…I feel a CASE coming on!
The colors are terrific and the fringe is fabulous! Such a fun card! Love it!
That fringed tissue is so cute and I really love the patterns in the papers. Fantastic card, Jennifer! I never give the kits a second glance, but maybe I should!
The colors are awesome but that fringe steals the show! What a cool card!
Wow! This is fabulous! Love the colors/prints, but especially love the colored and fringed tissue paper! Gorgeous!
Love this, Jennifer! What a cool effect with the tissue paper. I have totally missed out on this kit — I love that dsp.
The fringing gives your card a fabulous look Jennifer and the colours you’ve used are lovely together!
Jen, this is awesome! I love the fringe and LOVE the colors. Fabulous take on the sketch this week.
Super fun card Jen! I love those colours together and think that fringed banner is so amazing! Reminds me of a hula skirt in Hawaii and totally made me smile!!!
