Freshly Made Sketches #45 and Sneak Peek

Posted on

Good morning all! It’s supposed to rain this morning and then again this afternoon here today. I have my Stampin’ Up! meeting tonight and I’ll post my swap card on Saturday. I can’t wait to see all of the other swaps that I will get. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s post is for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Cindy has provided us with this sketch…

Very nice, clean and simple and I kept my card exactly like that. The base of my card is Baja Breeze Card Stock. I used a piece of Patio Party Designer Series Paper backed by a piece of Whisper White Card Stock for the large sort of background piece, it’s adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stamped image is form the Four Seasons Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals. I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch to punch it out. The image was stamped again in Baja Breeze and I punched out just the center image with the 1 ” Circle Punch and mounted it to the larger Image with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The ribbon is Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. I used some Sticky Strip to wrap it around the DSP and hold it in place. Another piece of ribbon is slid through one of the new Designer Ribbon Slides* and I flagged the ends with my Paper snips. It is adhered to the other piece of ribbon with a Mini Glue Dot. The greeting is from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals are also used to adhere that to the card front. The new Round Designer Ribbon Slides* are one of my favorite new embellishments from the new Holiday Catalog. You can place your orders starting August 1st. I hope you enjoyed this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge Card and thank for checking in. Have a great day!
