Merry Monday #42

Hi there

I missed the deadline on last weeks Merry Monday #42 sketch challenge, but I will share it with you anyway.  This was the first card that I made with the Snow Festival DSP and the Raspberry Ripple and Baja Breeze colour combo.   This is a great sketch from Lesley and I'm sure I will be using it again.  Here it is:


I just received the new Sleigh Silhouette stamp and it was the perfect layout to put it to use. I have stamped it in Midnight Muse to balance the Raspberry Ripple and Baja Breeze with a simple greeting to finish it. The rose red seam binding blends really well with the Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple in the DSP and I like the softer bow it makes.

This is a very CAS card and easy to reproduce and I'm going to try it with some other DSP options.   I used my new Stampin' Trimmer on this card and I love everything about it. Definitely worthwhile if your paper trimmer has seen better days as mine had. It will be available for sale from 1 December 2012.

Freshly Made #62

Hi there

Unfortunately, life has been getting in the way of my crafting time lately.  Today I have a managed a very CAS card for this week's Freshly Made #62 sketch challenge. I am behind in my Christmas cards, so I used the opportunity to add to my stash.  Here is the sketch.


I have used my current favourite colour combo of Raspberry Ripple and Baja Breeze and the 'Snow Festival' DSP that I had sitting on my craft table.  I have another card with this colour combo to show you soon, but as I missed the cut off date, I will leave that for another day.

Freshly Made #59

Hi there

A really quick post tonight so I can make the deadline for last week's Freshly Made sketch. I have flipped the sketch intoto a portrait style and taken a bit of liberty to put the sentiment in. Here is the sketch:


The circle design from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set has been stamped and clear embossed for the focus  panels.  If you look carefully, you will see the Window Frames shape within the circle, so I have die cut the smallest of the Window Frames in silver Glimmer paper for the first mat and then placed it onto the 1 3/8" Raspberry Ripple square, which fits perfectly.
