Freshly Made Sketches #407



The talented Lee Ann Barrett designed a fabulous sketch for us this week! I played with a few stamp sets before settling on PTI Spruce & Sprigs for the greenery and Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls for the sentiment.




The white panel is embossed with a Tim Holtz Holly embossing folder for interest and texture before the die cuts are layered and the sentiment popped up over them.




Check out all the amazing Clean Team cards and play along with us this week!

CASology Challenge 354: FOG

Welcome to Week 354 at CASology!




The first thing that came to my mind with FOG as our cue word was vellum, as it mimics the translucent nature of fog, which led to cutting a pair of Concord & 9th Give Thanks vellum die cuts.




The die cuts are placed over and under an MFT sentiment strip and finished with a trio of enamel dots.




Check out the design team cards for more great ideas!

Freshly Made Sketches #406



I'm excited to be the designer of our sketch this week and love the cards created by the Clean Team!

We are impatiently waiting for dear friends to welcome their first grandchild which led me to make a new baby card. The baby gender is unknown, but I have a strong feeling I went with the correct color choice. If I'm wrong, I'll happily make a blue version and pop this one away for another day.




The MFT Beautiful Baby sentiment and a few cluster of stars are clear embossed on a white panel before being inked with Spin Sugar Distress Ink. A tiny bit of Picked Raspberry Distress Ink is added to the center and then both colors inked on a die cut heart.




I hope you are inspired to join us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
