As promised, I have a fun card to share with you today plus a video.  We have this super sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches from the queen of layers, Narelle.  She makes layering look effortless and always elegant!  As for me….it wasn’t working.  So I took a step back and simply layered the images instead.  I hope she doesn’t mind too much.  Here is the how to on my card:

I’m still in Denver taking my check ride (3 days of fun in the simulator) but I did get to have coffee with the amazing Kim Singdahlsen from the team.  I tell you what, it made facing all those engine out approaches much more tolerable!!  *smile*

Ok….back to studying.  I hope you enjoy the video and this fun sketch.  Go check out all the inspiration from the team, of course, too!  See you again Friday with another fun card!

Santa

Happy Friday to you!  I hope your week has been great!  We have been unseasonably warm but I’m still plugging away at my Christmas cards.  I pulled out this amazing set called Santa from Lili of the Valley.  It has wonderful detail, doesn’t it?!  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color him.  I love that my 48 pack of pens gives me enough to get all the shading and colors that I could possible need.  The image was stamped with Black WPlus9 Pure Color Dye Ink and the sentiment was stamped after I colored everything in Black Versafine Ink.  The WPlus9 ink really holds up to the watercoloring and the Versafine is great for sentiments.  This sentiment comes from A Gift from Santa (SU).  I cut the image panel and a Real Red panel using the Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I tied a double layer of Basic Black Baker’s Twine onto a Basic Black card base.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did coloring it.  I actually colored the panel last week and was happy to finally turn it into a finished card.

Over the next few days I will be taking a check ride with United so I’ll be off from the blog.  Lots of studying and fun with emergency training in the simulator.  But I already have a card ready for next Wednesday’s Freshly Made Sketches complete with a video.  Until then, I hope you have  wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping in.

So guess what we have for you today at Freshly Made Sketches!!  Just look at this awesome sketch.  So cool and creative….just like Cindy Lovell who designed this one for us!  The fun trio plus the vertical sentiment makes for fun options.

I used the stamp set from the latest Paper Pumpkin (October) called Blissful Bouquet.  The images and sentiments are fabulous!  I colored these with Zig Clean Color Markers to create these fall flowers.  I made a video to show you how easy it is to color these flowers.
