Freshly Made Sketches #555

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #555!



Our fabulous sketch this week is from the Queen of lovely, layered designs, Narelle Farrugia! I do miss the crisp crinkle and beautiful colors of autumn leaves this time of year and couldn't resist pulling out a few leaf products to see how they could play together.



The Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies were cut from paper scraps in autumn colors and arranged into a twine tied bouquet before being popped up on a kraft stitched circle. This circle was adhered to the leaf embossed panel and then sat for a few days while I figured out what to do with the rectangle panel and sentiment.

In the end, as you can see, I layered the two elements. The MFT Greetings and Salutations sentiment is stamped with green ink on the flag first, then The Greetery die cut added and the entire piece popped up over the circle die.



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

Freshly Made Sketches #554

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #554!


I had any idea immediately for Karren Johnson's fabulous sketch this week and pulled out the Memory Box Graceful Stag Collage die, PTI Dash Away All stamp set for the sentiment and a scrap of buffalo check designer paper.




It took a bit of thinking before deciding to use the Taylored Expressions snowflake embossing folder on a white panel then cutting out the offset Ellen Hutson Rectangle. The rectangle is cut again in black to create a frame for the stag die cut. 

By adhering the stag to the embossed small rectangle first, it was easy to trim the stag to fit and leave some of the antlers extending out of the frame. A glitter red enamel dot finished off the design.

Freshly Made Sketches #553

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #553!


 

This lovely sketch from C├ęcile Ribon inspired another Christmas card from me. Our heat wave had me initially thinking snowflakes but in the end I couldn't resist creating a glitter paper and vellum poinsettia in snowflake colors.





A little Tumbled Glass Distress Ink was blended on the center of the panel first and then a trio of rectangles were cut to form a stencil for the a little more ink. The Memory Box Bold Christmas Greetings sentiment is heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum before the layered poinsettia is added.

A few Pretty Pink Posh gems add a little extra glitter to finish the design.
