Freshly Made Sketches 154 & Sam!

Posted on

Hello there peeps! I’m so glad that you all enjoyed Donna’s mixed-media projects yesterday! They really are great! I had a good day yesterday. I got to go on a field trip for work, we all know that I love that! I went to BestBuy and Apple. I also stopped at one of our buildings that we have in Wantagh to measure the window for a sign. It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed the ride in the car. I had some errands to run when I got home and then crafted for a bit. I’m super excited for this evening though! Andrew and I are going to see Sam Smith!! I got the tickets a while ago as one of Andrews Birthday gifts. We are going to head into the city early and grab some dinner. The concert is at 8:00 and is all the way up at 175th Street and Columbus Avenue. I don’t think that I have ever been up that high in Manhattan! I will make sure that I have Andrew remind me to take lots of pictures! I can’t wait!! 😀

My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches #154

This was one of those times that I knew what I was going to do as soon as I saw the sketch! My card base is Soft Sky Card Stock. For the two strips I used a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon that I trimmed the edges of and pulled a few rows off. The second one is a piece of 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon. I used some Fast Fuse to adhere them both to the card. A piece of Vellum is up next and I used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the corners before I heat embossed the sunburst image from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Across the front is a piece of Very Vanilla that I flagged the ends on and stamped the greeting from the And Many More Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar. Finally, the bird is from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and is also stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and cut out with my Paper Snips. A Stampin’ Dimensional holds him in place. So we have determined that Vellum and Heat Embossing are my things right now! LOL! I do love the way the vellum lets the background items peek through and the Choose Happiness and Kinda Eclectic Stamp Sets go with each other so nicely! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. It’s always nice to have you visit and and I hope that you have a great Thursday! 🙂
