Freshly Made Sketches #437

Our sketch this week is from the lovely, elegant C├ęcile Ribon and had me reaching immediately for MFT Abstract Art stamp set and a rainbow selection of inks.

Starting with the green drip of ink in the center, a stamp platform helped to place the other brush strokes evenly across the panel. A Paper Rose Studio Arty Love Creator's Tools sentiment is added at the top and the panel popped up on the card base.

CASology Challenge #369: WIND

I love a cue word that has many meanings as you can see by the variety of images used by the design team! I went with a nautical theme and wind filled sails for my card.

An MFT Stitched Arch die cut opening and All About Dad sentiment prepare the top panel to be popped up over an inked panel. The Wplus9 Dockside sailboat die is the last element added to the design.

The design team really have fabulous takes on the cue word!

Freshly Made Sketches #436

The framed panel in Jen's sketch had me reaching for an MFT Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames die, The Stamp Market Just Vines die and Taylored Expressions Rosy Posy embossing folder.  The frame is adhered over the embossed panel while I decided which version of the vine to adhere. 

After a bit of playing around, a teal vine outline was added first, then the white leaf pieces and finally a second vine outline in green.  An MFT Well Hello sentiment is heat embossed on the teal strip to finish this card.

I hope you check out the terrific Clean Team cards and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
