Freshly Made Sketches #78

Posted on

Friday, need I saw any more! I was in the city until 10:00 last night and I got off the train at 11:05, I’m a little tired today. For some added fun the hockey game let out just before I got to Penn Station, again, need I say more?! What’s on for the weekend? I’m off to the airport to get my friend Kim tomorrow night. I have always loved the airport and been fascinated with planes since I was a little kid. I would like to be on one somewhere soon!

Just a reminder that today is the last day for Sale-A-Bration! Don’t forget to place your order to get some of the amazing products from this year’s line up!

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week we have a fun sketch from Jen M….

Freshly Made Sketches #78

I love the Sent with Love Suite, it speaks to my love of planes! The base of my card is Pool Party Card Stock. The background is a piece of Sent with Love Designer Series Paper. At the top is a piece of Island Indigo the I cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit on the one side. A piece of Real Red is embossed with the Needlepoint Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered on top. All of the images are from the Sent with Love Stamp Set. The main image is stamped in Calypso Coral and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. I stamped the image again in Island Indigo and used my Paper Snips to cut out the plane. The words are stamped in Real Red and both pieces are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I backed it with a piece of Sent with Love Designer Series Paper, also cut out with the Ovals Framelits, and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting in the lower right is stamped in Calypso Coral and punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, yup, another Dimensional holds it in place. I hope that you enjoyed my Freshly Made Sketches card fir this week’s challenge. I thank you very much for spending some time with me today and I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Paper Craft Crew Sketch 34

Posted on

Ahh, Thursday, I like you so much better than Monday! How are we all today? I’m good, looking forward to the weekend as always. Yesterday felt a little long but today will be a bit longer. I’m off to Manhattan after work, hopefully it will be finished raining/snowing/freezing by the time I head in. They had a derailment on the LIRR on Monday and it has messed up the trains all week. Maybe that will be cleared up tomorrow too, we can only hope. Did you all enjoy the Control Freaks Blog Tour yesterday?! I always have so much fun making my projects with that super talented group. If you didn’t get a chance to take a look be sure to, there were some great projects!

Today I have my post for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge. This time around we have a sketch challenge…

PCCCS036 3-20-2013 Sketch Spring

Some really neat suggestions in the sketch wouldn’t you agree?! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack from Sale-A-Bration. You only have until tomorrow to place you order and qualify for your free Sale-A-Braiton goodies and then it’s gone again until next year. I cut out a doily from the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit in Whisper White. The rounded scallop flag and the flagged pieces are cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies from Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango. All three of the pieces are adhered under a piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The “flowers” are from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set (also from Sale-A-Bration) and are stamped in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. For the greeting I use the stamp from the first Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped it in Island Indigo. It is punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered to the embossed piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals along with the “flowers”. I really like the stamp from the Paper Pumpkin Set, it has that casual feel to it. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for this week’s sketch challenge. Don’t forget to see what the other designers have come up with over at the Paper Craft Crew blog. Thank you for checking in and I hope you have an awesome day!
