SPD Mix #83 and FMS 504

SPD Mix #83 and FMS 504 published on 5 Comments on SPD Mix #83 and FMS 504

Today I get to share a combination card joining two of my favorite challenges! I started with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and use the inspiration from SugarPea Designs’ Mix It Up Challenge. So fun!

Using the Autumn Background stamp set, I stamped in Versamark Ink and then heat embossed in Gold Rich from Wow on Dark Chocolate card stock. Something about the gold on the dark brown is so pretty and a bit unexpected. This was the color from the inspiration that really drew me in!

In keeping with the sketch layers, I used some gold twine from my stash for the crossing panel. In truth, I first added more layers but then just could not cover up all the pretty detail of the background. Instead, I just chose the SugarCut – Thanks Word die and cut the top piece from gold card stock and the bottom from more Dark Chocolate. I pulled a few gold sequins from my stash to add even more shine.

Thanks for stopping by today! Back on Friday with more fun! See you then.

SugarPea Designs Fall Sweet Peek Week – Day 1

SugarPea Designs Fall Sweet Peek Week – Day 1 published on 32 Comments on SugarPea Designs Fall Sweet Peek Week – Day 1

I am so excited to be here for day 1 of the SugarPea Designs Fall Release Sweet Peek Week.

Today we are sharing two new products: Always Welcome Stamp Set and Always Welcome SugarCut Dies

The Always Welcome set is a wonderful new scene building set with fabulous elements. I chose to focus just on the tree for today’s card. I think you can agree that it is great in every color! I was inspired to make a non-traditional Christmas card and I just love the results with this rainbow of trees.

I stamped the trees and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I thought they fit perfectly on a mini slimline card so I lined them up and attached them. The sentiment comes from my long time favorite Everyday Sentiments.

FMS498 and SPD Mix It Up #82

Happy Wednesday! I am here today with a combo card that joins two of my challenges, Freshly Made Sketches and SugarPea Designs’ Mix It Up Challenge.

When I looked at the inspiration photo, I fell in love with the colors! And then I saw Jen Mitchell’s sketch and I knew just what to do. I pulled out the Meadow Motifs Stamp Set and chose two of the floral sprays. To match the sketch I put the smaller one in the bottom right corner on Desert Storm card stock. Then I pulled out some fall colored Copic Markers in yellows, oranges and browns.

I love how those colors change the entire feel of the images! And it made me so very happy. For a sentiment, I reached to the Floral Envie Stamp Set. This sentiment is really beautiful and I thought it provided just the right balance for the card. I hope you enjoy this combination and will come play along!

Last week I promised a sneak peek week from Honey Bee Stamps. Well, Covid strikes again and there was a delay in shipping the release to the company. In order to make sure customers were able to order, the peeks were delayed. But they are scheduled to start this Friday. I cannot wait to share! Until then, I hope you have some time to craft.

Freshly Made Sketches #447

Happy middle of the week! Honestly I’m glad for the Wednesday challenge to help me keep track of the days right now. The oh so talented Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch designer at Freshly Made Sketches this week and this one is such a classic.

In fairness to Kim, I truly started on a path of following the sketch completely. But sometimes designing goes a different path. I think I stayed true enough to the intent at least. I thought a Halloween card was just what I needed to shake it up. And what could be more fun that this Trick or Treaters Stamp Set by Picket Fence Studios. I just love these sweet images! I colored the adorable witch and her, um, friend with Copic Markers. Then using the Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil from SweetPea Designs, I inked the grass. I added a bit of a purple sky and used the same stencil for the stars. I had a couple of great sentiment choices but this one made me smile when used with this little cutey.

I hope you’ll come over and play with us this week. The team has created such wonderful inspiration, as they do each week. Thank you for stopping in today. I’m always grateful for the chance to share with you. Have a great rest of your week.
