Freshly Made Sketches #514

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #514!



The elegant Clean Team designer C├ęcile Ribon has given us a super versatile sketch this week! I'm still plugging away with Christmas cards, so started looking through ornament images for the circle element.



The Memory Box Cabrini Ornament is cut from glitter paper first and then the holly leaves and berries were cut again from scraps for a pop of color.  A quick search on my Evernote inventory identified a slightly smaller holly die in the MFT Christmas Ornament die set that worked for the extra leaves and the berry is a leftover bit from a tag die cut. 

A heat embossed PTI Traveler's Journal December Typed Words sentiment finishes the design.



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

Freshly Made Sketches #513

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #513!



Clean Team designer Jennifer Brum is the creative genius behind the sketch this week! There are so many great images that are perfect for the circle element, especially if you are knee deep in holiday cards like me.





The MFT Snow Globe sentiment is stamped on the white panel first, then snow embossed and cut with a wonky stitched rectangle die. 

The bird pair from MFT Tweet Holidays stamp set is perfect for the circle element. The image is colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped up over a black sentiment strip. 




The Clean Team has fabulous designs this week. I hope you check them out and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

Freshly Made Sketches #512

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #512!



Clean Team designer Kim Singdahlsen has given us the sweetest sketch this week! I pulled out the smaller  Memory Box Star of Wonder die to use for the tree element and thought about what I wanted to do with the horizontal lines for a few days. 





I have a bowl on my desk that holds little stars left over from other projects and realized there was enough gold shimmer bits to create an anchoring line for the big star.  I'd already watercolored the splash of purpley blue sky to back the big star so ran a light touch of color to add a couple horizontal lines. Once the panel was dry, the PTI December Typed Words sentiment is split between the top two lines and the metallic gold star popped up last.




The Clean Team has amazing cards this week. Check them out at Freshly Made Sketches and play along with us!
