Pretty Pink (Freshly Made Sketches #301)

Posted on

My good intentions for completing one or two cards during the week, at my leisure, are once again out the window as here it is Sunday afternoon with the clock ticking. Therefore without further ado, this is my card.

And this is the original 301 sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. As you can see, I rotated my card to stand upright. Landscape just wasn’t working for me today.

Isn’t the pink foil on kraft cardstock just the nicest? It’s a fabulous DSP package that’s available in the current annual catalog from Stampin’ Up!

Remember, you can always order from me if you’d like to add some to your stash… I’m only to happy to help!😆


Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

How is it that I went almost TWO YEARS without realizing how fabulous Summer Starfruit and Rich Razzleberry look together?

Language of Love - Stary Summerfruit - JIFEven going for a more masculine look works with this stamp set.

language of Love - Soho Summerfruit - JIFAnd naturally the set lends itself to an anniversary or wedding card. For this next card I combined both dry and heat embossing for quite the stunning result with more of my left-over Silver Glimmer Strips!

Where my week went…

Posted on

It’s official, I’m admitting defeat on this week – after having Boy Child home today with possible tonsillitis (which it isn’t as my poor neighbors can attest to now), then forgetting that with Easter just days away the refrigerator required restocking so there went the morning with grocery shopping and unpacking, and oh yes, the Easter Bunny had yet to shop, well… I gave up!

However, given the late hour I’m now able to post the card I spent Tuesday creating for a lovely lady who retired today from the project Darling Hubby is working on. I’m happy with the card but seriously, an entire day AND night… what the? Talk about bad head-space!

Happy Retirement dear lady!

Not sure why the colors are so muted in this photo, perhaps it has something to do with the fact it was almost midnight by the time I was happy with it all and took this photo.

The card base was Whisper White Cardstock with Wisteria Wonder Cardstock as the main layer, onto that went Silver Glimmer Paper to create a bright border around the Elegant Eggplant Cardstock onto which I added lime-green ribbon roses both above and below the DSP. The accessories were all pulled from “the stash”, lol. All hail the stash! 🙂

Don’t you just love how it can take OVER a full working day to complete just ONE card? Imagine if we charged cards per the hours we spent on them? Yea right, like THAT’S going to happen, lol!

Anyways, I best bid you all a good-night and wish you and your families all the most wonderful Easter Break however, and whichever, way you celebrate.

Snowflakes on Soft Skies!

Posted on

I am NOT going to admit to how long I have had my Festive Flurry Bundle before using it for the first time this week but I am willing to admit that I am now wondering how I EVER lived without it, lol! 🙂

With only 29 days until Christmas, here’s the first Christmas miracle of the season so I hope you’re sitting down for it… my Mojo Monday is actually being posted on a Monday, I know, crazy huh?! Anyways, this is this week’s sketch…

Mojo 321 Sketch

Today’s card came about so quickly that it actually scared me with not only the speed in which I created but as to how much I really like the end result. If only I had a French Horn so I could blow it, lol! Without further ado here’s my take on the sketch…

Mojo 321 - Soft Sky Snow Flurry - JIF

On my base of Whisper White I did the smallest border of Soft Sky cardstock around my Winter Frost Specialty DSP. What I’ve used here is the reverse of the same sheet if that makes sense. The next layer was the smallest border of Silver Foil around the Soft Sky cardstock which I embossed with a silver snow-flake from the Warmth & Wonder Hostess Stamp Set.

The layer upon this was the smallest border of Whisper White around Silver Foil. This foil I fully intended to dry emboss with Perfect Polka Dots but was interrupted with a trip to the hospital with Girl Child for vaccinations so forgot, oops! The final layer is a snowflake from the Snow Flurry set which I heat embossed with Iridescent Ice on Whisper White cardstock (sadly though the sparkle isn’t showing on these photos) before cutting it with the corresponding framelit.

Mojo 321 - Soft Sky Snow Flurry - Embossed Layers - JIF

After I’d adhered all the layers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added to the snowflake two of my current favorites from the Holiday Catalog, the Frosted Finishes Embellishments and the “Merry” from the Expressions Thinlits Dies in Silver Foil. LOVE THEM!!! To this I’ve silver embossed “Christmas” onto the DSP from the stamp set Sweet Essentials. This stamp set, if you don’t already have it, is fabulous as it all sentiments which cover many events plus they are quite a reasonable size which I like.

Mojo 321 - Soft Sky Snow Flurry - Merry - JIFYet again I felt like the Swedish chef from the Muppets with my “layer upon layer upon layer” and yes, I did say this to myself repeatedly with the accent over the course of the afternoon! 🙂
