Freshly Made Sketches #564

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #564!


Wreaths and snow globes and snowflakes fought it out on my desk for the chance to be picked to star in a design based on this fabulous sketch for the always elegant Clean Team designer, C├ęcile Ribon. As you can see, snowflakes won.




I started with a piece of polka dot vellum embossed with snowflakes and cut into a circle. This piece is adhered to a white circle in a few spots hidden by the trio of snowflake die cuts and PTI Wet Paint Holiday peace die cut.

Each snowflake has a Pretty Pink Posh jewel center and a scatter of small clear sequins finishes the design.




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

Freshly Made Sketches #563

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #563!

I love the creative freedom the sketch from the queen of big, bold blossoms, Jennifer Brum,  gives us this week! Do you choose to take advantage of the wide open panel or focus on the offset circle focal point? As you can see, I did a little of both.

I adore the Taylored Expressions Peppermint Kisses stencil and die set that is used to make the pretty candy cane and holly cluster. I did substitute a few enamel dots instead of using the berry die cut.




The Lawn Fawn Merry Messages sentiment is stamped and heat embossed, ready to be added to the panel when I paused. I didn't want to add any more color to the design but went looking for an embossing folder to add texture and interest. A Tim Holtz Snow Flurries folder hit the spot for me.



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

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends celebrating the holiday this week!

Thanks for stopping by,

Freshly Made Sketches #562

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #562!


This fabulous sketch from Kim Singdahlsen is the perfect opportunity to highlight washi tapes or strips of pretty designer papers, which was my first plan. I was distracted by Lawn Fawn Woodgrain cardstock into created a partial frame for a poinsettia instead.




An ancient PTI Think Big Favorites sentiment is stamped on the card base first and then sentiment strips dies were used to create the woodgrain pieces. The Poppystamps Blooming Poinsettia layers were cut from both pink cardstock and a pale pink vellum, layered and finished off with a gem center, then adhered on the panel.




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