Freshly Made Sketches #535

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #535!

Clean Team designer Karren Johnson gave me the perfect sketch to make a last minute anniversary card for my husband. This isn't the first year the date has snuck up on us and, as expected, he laughed at the sentiment.




The Stamp Market Big Bold Number dies are perfect for a couple of the circle elements. The base number is cut from Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust glitter cardstock and layered with a red outline piece. An ancient MFT Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries sentiment is heat embossed on a vellum banner and adhered to the back of the 2 before they are layered on the heart embossed panel.

A PTI From the Heart die cut takes the place of the third circle to finish the design.

Freshly Made Sketches #535

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #535!



I love Amy O’Neill’s fun sketch this week and it completely inspired me to make a graduation card.

The PTI layered star tag, circle and graduation cap dies were the first things pulled and cut in the colors of a local high school.


I went back and forth on the sentiment before deciding on this joyful option from MFT Yay stamp set. This also meant taking creative license and moving the sentiment from the suggested spot in the sketch.

Everything is layered and added to the star embossed panel to finish the design.

Freshly Made Sketches #534

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #534!


I adore the elegant, airy feel of C├ęcile Ribon's sketch this week and played with a few ideas before settling on a little bit more of a clunky design.




The airy swipes became the inked blended ocean and partially stamped Concord & 9th Map Love world map. An Ali Edwards Roam Story Stamp (July 2020 kit) sentiment pairs perfectly with the Simply Graphic VW Bus die cut.

This card is for my VW Bus loving DH who dreams of roaming the globe in the new electric version due out in a 2024. I'm trying to figure out how to operate a mobile craft room so I can join him.
