Freshly Made Sketches #199

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a sneak peek at a bunch of products from the brand new Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalog!  I love being able to pre-order the holiday products so that I can get a head start on all of my holiday crafting.  

I took some inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog.  Here's the sketch that they posted for this week.


Here's my take on the sketch.  I wanted to use a bunch of the new Halloween themed products from Stampin' Up!  I used the new Witches' Night stamp set.  It's photopolymer set that coordinates with a brand new home decor project kit, but it is also a great stand alone set for Halloween cards.  Look at how big the stamp is!  It's a perfect focal point for a card.  I used it alone on a piece of Tangelo Twist card stock here, but it coordinates with the Lots of Labels framelits from the annual catalog.  Do you also see the new Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper?  It's really cute!



I repeated the same washi tape flags on the inside of the card for more interest.  This is the new Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tape.  You know I love washi!  There is also a third roll of tape which is Tangelo Twist with little white stars on it.


Hope you enjoyed some of my sneak peeks at the new catalog today!  If you need some inspiration, make sure you check out the Freshly Made Sketches blog by clicking on the sketch above.

Freshly Made Sketches 198 - Bridal Shower Card

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a card for you that I actually did a stash dive on.  I was trying to use up some of my retired supplies on this card.  I thought the color combo was perfect for a summertime bridal shower.  I used sketch 198 from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog as my inspiration.

Here's the card that I made:

Sadly, this stamp set, Love and Laughter, is no longer available.  I really loved this set.  I was a dummy and got rid of mine, so I had to go and borrow it from my friend!  I loved this Gold Soiree Designer Series Paper!  It's on the clearance rack right now so be sure to stock up!!!

Here is the sketch I used for inspiration.  I love it!   It's so simple, but you can really add to it depending on your personal stamping style.

Here's a close up of the gold emobossed bridal gown.  I love how the gown is formed from all different sized text.

Freshly Made Sketches 125

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a card for this weeks challenge over on the Freshly Made Sketches blog.

Here's this week's sketch.  It is pretty basic so I had to think outside of the box to decide on how I was going to embellish on it.

First I decided on which Designer Series Paper I wanted to use, and from that I chose my color combo. I went with something bright and cheery - the Quatrefancy DSP!

I thought that a little bit of Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo would be nice on a day we are expecting more STUPID SNOW!

To make the flower, I stamped the image from the Simple Stems stamp set three times - once in Island Indigo, once in Melon Mambo, and one final time in Daffodil Delight.  Then I cut out the different layers of flowers.  I used my two-way glue pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds around each flower edge for extra sparkle.  I layered them with Dimensionals and added a Basic Rhinestone to the center.  The final step was to stamp the sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set in Melon Mambo.
