Freshly Made Sketches #542

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #542!


Clean Team designer Kim Singdahlsen has given us a fabulous, classic sketch to work with this week. The biggest challenge was deciding what shape I wanted to highlight, but things came together very quickly once I flipped through a few dies and spotted a summer favorite.




The Hero Arts ice cream cone dies are cut and the cone embossed to give it a waffle cone look. Course glitter gives a sugary finish to the ice cream. The cone is popped up over a pretty pink gingham panel. A little white ink was smeared over the panel before stamping the Lawn Fawn Treat Yourself sentiment. A few enamel dots finish the design. 




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

I'm adding this card to Seize the Birthday #241 - Summer Activities challenge.

Freshly Made Sketches #541

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #541!


The fun sketch this week is from the talented Jen Brum and had me immediately thinking of ways to use the horizontal panel to add a splash of color or pattern to my design. It was accidental that I went with a rainbow stripe after a couple attempts at using a rainbow in the center panel failed.




I love the precision stripes I can get using The Stamp Market Quick Strip 1/4" dies. The rainbow colors were adhered to a black scrap panel slightly smaller than the width of the white panel and then cut with the same rectangle die to get a perfect fit.

Butterflies were cut from scraps using the Memory Box Butterfly Wings die, adhered in the same rainbow order as the stripes and topped with Pretty Pink Posh gems. A heat embossed sentiment from MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes finished the design.

Freshly Made Sketches #540

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #540!


I took a super clean and simple approach to Jen Mitchell's terrific sketch this week, creating the overlapping panels with Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks and a Taylored Expressions stencil. I masked off about an inch of the stencil to get a smaller rectangle the fit the design better.




An MFT Greetings and Salutations sentiment is stamped overlapping the orange panel and then The Stamp Market Just Vines die cut and a trio of sequins are to finish the design.




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