Freshly Made Sketches #232

Good morning!

Today I’m posting a few cards that I just finished for Freshly Made Sketches. This challenge was new to me, and thinking of something to do was indeed a challenge!

The background on this first card was done with a masking tape technique background. This was also new, so it took me a couple tries to get a background that I really liked. The stamped sentiment is from Stamps of Life and comes along with a bicycle themed set, but I just love this little rider couple that I created in Cricut Craft Room with the Yee Haw cartridge.

The second and third cards are also loosely based on the sketch. The Orange You Sweet card was done with Close to My Heart products. I used a little embroidery thread to tie my two tags together.

For the last card I used a stamp set that I’ve had for a LONG time. I can’t even remember where I got it. Anyway, I colored the flower with ShinHanart Markers, used a little embroidery thread for a bow, and popped the sentiment up with a little foam tape.

Always learning! These were three fun cards that were quick and fairly easy to do with Freshly Made Sketches 232. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

MOJO Monday 443: Hello! Hello! Card

Hello! Hello! is the theme of this card for the MOJO Monday 443 Challenge. There is so much talent and inspiration on display in this challenge!

I chose a pretty simple little card today. It was a wonderful spring week in Wisconsin and I’ve been working on getting a little spring cleaning and yard work done. This evening I decided to sit down and make some cards while I can still hear bird songs through the open windows.

I liked this bright green paper with all the speech bubbles and like the way it stands out against the blue and black background. I added a Cricut Cut speech bubble from “Basic Shapes”. The stamps are from Stamps of Life. The bird is from the Hippo2Stamp set.

 Thanks for stopping by and may God bless the rest of your weekend!
