Freshly Made Sketches #520

Another week has flown by and back with a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. This fabulous version is courtesy of the amazing Jen Mitchell. Some fun layers to inspire you!

I had a VERY important birthday card to create and this was just what I needed. My youngest son turns 16 today! Oh my word, how can that be??!!! He is such a fun kid and I wanted a card that reflects that. Plus, we have an ongoing family joke around cake (based on an old video game) so this image was an easy choice. The image is from the Fancy Frosting set by Honey Bee Stamps. Super fun and so versatile for designing your cake. I stamped the basic cake, added the frosting layer and then cut it out with the coordinating dies. I colored with Copic Markers to coordinate with the Funfetti Paper Pack (also Honey Bee Stamps). I added some Rainbow Sherbet Confetti from Trinity Stamps as an extra cake decoration.

So happy you stopped in today. I hope to be back to more stamping soon. Just got the oldest off to college for his spring semester and I think I am getting back to a more normal household pattern. So until next time, have a wonderful week.

Back today with another card as the Trinity Stamps May Guest Designer. Today I have one of everyone’s favorites – a shaker card!  

I love the delicate little flowers in the Hopeful Flowers Stamp Set.  I stamped the curved spray and some of the little flowers and colored with Copic Markers.  I cut them out with the Hopeful Flowers Coordinating Die Set.  I cut a circle from some white card stock and blended on some yellow ink, then stamped the sentiment from the Thank You Senti-mini Stamp Set.

Inside the circle, I created a shaker with by blending on more ink on a background panel and then adding the Glass Slipper Confetti Mix.  If I can stop shaking it myself, I just know this will be fun to send to a friend.  Let’s face it, shaker cards are always a sure hit!

It was such fun guesting with Trinity Stamps this month and I’m grateful they had me along! I’ll be back next week with tons of sneak peeks from the Sugar Pea Designs upcoming release. See you then!
