Freshly Made Sketches 108

Posted on

Last night I went to Chili’s for dinner with my friend Danielle and then we went to see my friend Andrew perform with his A Cappella group at the Long Island Children’s Museum. They opened for another group called Cluster. Both of them were amazing! It really is incredible what they do, they make it sound like there are instruments involved and there aren’t any. You can check out cluster on iTunes and you can see my friend Andrew and his group perform by clicking here.

Stampin’ Up! has a new one day only special every Thursday. They call them Thank you Thursday’s and this week it’s all about Punches! You can get 25% off the following five punches today only:

That’s a very nice deal! All of the punches have at least one coordinating stamp set and what could be easier that punching out your stamped image?! Remember this deal is only good for today!

Now for today’s post which is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week’s sketch is provided by Narelle…

Freshly Made Sketches #108

Pretty neat layout huh?! The base of my card is Old Olive Card Stock. I used a small piece of paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack for the background. The strip of Cherry Cobbler that goes across the middle is embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My panel in the middle starts off with a piece of Old Olive and adhered to to of that is a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. The flags are more Gold Foil Sheet that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. For the greeting I stamped the got mistletoe from the Very Merry Tags Stamp Set in Old Olive and used the Extra Large Oval Punch to punch it out. Some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details fills in the berries and the lips are from the Best of Love Stamp Set and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Sometimes you just need a traditional holiday card and the Gold Foil Sheet pairs really nicely with the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. Thanks for taking a little time to stop by and see my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Narelle. Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂

    That is so flipping cute with the lips on it!!

  2. Haha, I love those little lips!!! Again you had me perplexed about which stamp set that was in. Clever, clever Justin!

  3. Oooo! Love it! The (Lips) are sweet!
    The emboss is nice going across! Nice Focal Point!
    Nice job!!!!!! 🙂

  4. Super-cute, Justin! The combination of those two stamp sets is perfection.

  5. LOVE IT ! So special …. thank you for showing the Punches sale . I have all of them but, the Pansy Punch …that is a definite purchase . BTW …the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Core`Dinations CS is on sale on the Clearance Rack for $2.79 !!! Don`t cha just love it !!

    • Thank you Sonny! I have them all too, but it’s a good discount. I bought the Core-dinations CS last week! LOL! And yes, I love it way too much! 🙂

  6. Just adorable-never would have thought of adding the lips for the mistletoe kiss! Thanks Justin.

  7. Well Justin, that card is a show stopper for sure. Being the Queen of Bling I, of course, think the gold foil really made the card POP! Just love it. By the way, what size do you normally make your cards – are they A2 or square?

    Watched your friends in action. Not only are they good but they look like they are having so much fun. You just want to join in singing with them. Thanks for sharing.

    • Well, that you very much Grace! I’m glad to know that you are the queen of bling! My cards are standard A2 mostly. I’m glad you enjoyed the video, I think it would have sounded better if they weren’t in a gym! 🙂

  8. Chili’s? Come out to NM for some real Mexican food! I do love your card, really fun.

  9. I love acapella music too, Justin! If you haven’t heard the band “Straight No Chaser,” I highly recommend checking them out. Their version of the “12 Days of Christmas” rocks!

    P.S. – love the lips on the card. So fun!

    Sent from Isabella’s iPad mini.


  11. Amazing card. Love the kiss.

  12. This is such a cool card, Justin! I loved it as soon as I saw it, and I almost missed the lips! That really signs, seals and delivers! Very clever! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
