A Fresh Work of Art

Today’s card features this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, paired with the Subtle colour combo from Colour Me…! 

My card:


I used one of my go-to stamp sets, Gorgeous Grunge, to create the “splattered” look on the Whisper White Panel and then used the Work of Art set for the sentiment/focal point. A little heart punched out of glimmer paper and some ribbon, finished off the look I was going for.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper

Ink: Smoky Slate, Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon

Stamp Set: Gorgeous Grunge, Work of Art

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Circles Collection Framelits, Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon, Itty Bitty Accents Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Floral Gorgeous Grunge

What a whirlwind this weekend has been! I can’t believe it’s Sunday already. The good news is that means it’s time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps and this week we have a fabulous colour combo for you.

Our challenge:

My card:


This was a really fun colour combo to play with and I couldn’t resist breaking out my new Gorgeous Grunge set for this one.  It’s hard to tell in picture, but that really is a layer of the Silver Foil Paper between the Night of Navy and Whisper White.  And I couldn’t resist adding some sparkle with the Silver Glimmer Paper.

I can’t wait to see what you create with this fabulous colour combo. Our only rule is to have fun and be creative! Just remember, to provide a link back to us in your post. The deadline to submit your creation is Friday, January 24th at 6pm (EST), so there’s plenty of time to play along!

Please do check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to be inspired by what they have come up with! Holly (creator)JoanMarieHayleySteph and Kathya.

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a fabulous New Year’s Eve however, you celebrated.

Being part of the first ever Design Team on the brand new card challenge Colour Me…!, is a fabulous way to start off my New Year.  Looking forward to working with all the very talented ladies on the team and seeing what you all come up with every week!

For our first challenge, we are going monochromatic, with Island Indigo:

My card:


I broke open my new Squares Collection Framelits, for my card. They have been sitting on my craft desk for over a month, and I couldn’t let them collect anymore dust!!  Since I used the fancy Silver Glimmer Paper, I kept the rest of my card pretty simple. I embossed the flower image twice, cut out the centre of one and popped it up with a dimensional to give it a bit of a 3D look.

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….! and check them out.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!! Rosemary, HayleySam, Tara, KatieLesley

The challenge will end on January 6th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules to keep things fair – you can check them out here.
