Freshly Made sketches.....Birthday Wishes


Happy Wednesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.



What a fun sketch, I had a blast with this one.

I started with a base of Thick Whisper White card stock.

I then used a piece of DSP from the Neutrals pad, then another layer of thick whipser white card stock.


For one of the two circle elements of the sketch I first just cut a small white circle and used a stencil and some Soft Sky ink. I then cut another circle using some basic black card stock.
I then cut a small strip of gold glimmer paper to lay across between the two circle elements.

Next up is my fave element, the flower of course.

I stamped the flower from the Crazy About You stamp set three times with Calypso Coral.
I fussy cut out and layered it up cutting away a layer of petals each time.
I stacked the layers together using some dimensionals.
I stamped the leaves using some Pear Pizzazz and fussy cut them out as well.
I used a couple of glue dots to attach the leaves to the glimmer paper and then more dimensionals to attach the flower.
I used a enamel dot in the center of the flower.

The sentiment comes from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Freshly Made Sketches.......Happy Birthday


Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

Popping in here quickly to share a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.


I decided to do another water colored BG for my card.

I started with a piece of water color paper. I taped it down to my water color board and begin to color it up
I used some Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie and lots of water.

I dried this piece with my heat tool and then dropped a bunch of water on the dried piece to get the splatters. I let it set for a few then used a paper towel to pick of the drops. I love this fun effect and it is so easy to achieve. 


I used the two colors to represent the two shades in the sketch.
I used my Botanical Builders dies to create my floral piece.
I used some scraps from my scrap pile for this. I used Coral, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie and white card stock
The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder set.
I added a few rhinestones around to finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I dove right in and pulled out some Crumb Cake to use for my base.

I cute a few Roses using the rose Wonder die cuts and stacked them up and glued together.

I de cut a few leaves from the same die using gold foil and Old Olive paper..

I started with a base of Basic Black and then a layer of white followed by another layer of Basic Black.

Hello Peeps!!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I then added lots of drops of water and let them set a bit before dabbing off with a paper towel. .

I glued this piece to my white card base.
The flower is added to the card using several dimensionals.

Paper Players.......Happy Birthday


Happy Monday  Peeps!!

Today I sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at The Paper Players.

This week it is  a Tic Tac Toe Challenge:


I went with the top line: Yellow, Twine and Birthday.

I, of course, have a few other colors going on besides the yellow. I do have to say I used the Botanical Builder framelits again for this car and I am totally obsessed with them. You all know how I love making flower cards and with these framelits you can easily make gorgeous cards without much stamping.

I die cut my flowers using white card stock and then sponged on Daffodil Delight. I really like the look with the white around the edges.


I also used the Rose Garden thinlits for leaves. I used Gold Foil and Pear Pizzazz card stock for them.
The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder set.
I added some white twine across the bottom and tied a bow.
I added a few white enamel dots on the flowers and scattered around the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Just Add Ink.....Black Eye Susans



Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the challenge this week at Just Add Ink.

They have a fun challenge and it is: Just Add  "B". It could be whatever you want that begins with a "B" as the main focus of your card.

I choose this great stamp from the Stampin Up Helping Me Grow stamp set for my "B" and I colored them to be Black Eye Susans.

I watercolored my entire card using my Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I love coloring with these inks.


I stamped the image onto some water color paper with Black Stazon ink.

I then taped the piece down to my water color board using some painter's tape. That is the white "frame" you see. 
I colored the flowers and stems first and made sure they were dry before moving onto the background. I used a couple of colors and blended as I went along being careful to not get the flower portion wet.

I used my heat tool to dry as I went along.
I added the sentiment and corner frames using black memento ink after all was dry.

This main panel was then glued to my card base. 

I used my Wink of Stella brush on the flowers, it does not show in the pic but adds just a nice shimmer.
