Freshly Made Sketches #504

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #504!


Clean Team designer Karren Johnson has given us a classic sketch in the slimline format this week. Does anyone else immediately think this style is perfect for slipping a little cash to the recipient or is it just me?




I pulled out the Poppystamps Haunting Pumpkins die and cut them in a few colors, including teal as a nod to the Teal Pumpkin Project that promotes awareness and inclusion for those living with food allergies. A teal pumpkin on your doorstep signals you offer nonfood options for trick-or-treaters.

The MFT Fab-Boo-lous Friends sentiment is heat embossed with teal embossing powder before the patterned paper strips and pumpkins are adhered to the panel.



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

Thanks for stopping by,

Freshly Made Sketches #503


C├ęcile Ribon is the Clean Team designer behind our sketch this week and it is her work that first introduced me to the lovely Simply Graphic dies. I immediately thought of the tram and mountain top from Sur La Montagne when I saw the sketch.




The squares were die cut first and the mountain die then used to cut across the tops of the two white squares. They are overlapped and adhered at slightly different heights on a falling snow embossed panel before the tram and MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes sentiment are added.



I hope you check out the fabulous Clean Team cards at Freshly Made Sketches and join in the fun this week!

ETA I've had a few questions about where to get the dies I used on this card. Simply Graphic is a French based papercrafting company that I order from directly using PayPal and the default/basic shipping option to the US. This die set is called Sur La Montagne (On the Mountain).

Thanks for stopping by,

Freshly Made Sketches #502

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #502!


I love the offset panel on Jennifer Brum's great sketch this week. I decided to use it to highlight a few bits and pieces that surfaced while reorganizing things in the office. 



The bouquet is created from a couple buttons, a resin flower, a resin flower brad and a rubber flower sitting on a Memory Box Massa Leaf die cut. The hello speech bubble was leftover from a long ago project and became the starting point for the sentiment.
