Freshly Made in Soft Colors

This is my third post today; I was terribly far behind on challenges that I like to do, so it became an intensive card-making session.   Freshly Made Sketches features a new sketch by Jen B.



Designer paper from Teresa Collins' Sweet Afternoon collection;  leafy die from Poppy Stamps. (Unidentified sentiment)


Sweet Sunday in Pink


It was fun to pull out some spring colors for a change, although I'm always a fan of dark and dramatic, too.  The Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge worked out in papers from Teresa Collins' "Sweet Afternoon" collection, accented with three layers of  the Lawn Cut "Smile" and a fabric butterfly from Petaloo.



Soar with Wings

The current challenge on Less is More involves wings.

The wings were cut with dies from Our Daily Bread's "Angel Wings."  Designer paper is from Stamper's Sampler, and "Soar" from Close to My Heart.

Sweet Sunday



It's that Sweet Sunday Sketch again....I've chosen papers from Teresa Collins' "stationery noted" pad and a flower from Petaloo.  "Friend" is a Cheer Lynn die.  


Second card made with the same sketch

Freshly Made

I'm almost late joining Freshly Made Sketches....the card didn't photograph well; the papers are all from the same coordinating pack.  However, I wanted to complete the task!  Freshly Made Sketch #173

Less is More with Pink and Gray

Less is More is celebrating 4 years as a card challenge blog.  The theme this week is a color combination:  pink and gray.



Freshly Made for Tuesday Mailing

As I've explained before, on Tuesdays I mail at least 3--and sometimes 4--cards to friends. For this Valentine week, I've chosen the Freshly Made Sketch 172 for my cards.


A pair of Sizzix hearts, dry-embossed and spritzed with pearl Glimmer Mist, a wired burlap ribbon -- all on a black and white designer paper background.  The sentiment is an old Dream Impressions saying.
