Freshly Made Sketches Guest Designer, Week 3! :)

Hello again! I’m happily enjoying my third week of contributing with the Freshly Made Sketches crew! You can check out their great challenge blog HERE.

And here is this week’s sketch:

And my card:

I took a little creative interpretation when creating the layout on this. πŸ˜‰! I stenciled the background and die cut that portion. I die cut all the other pieces and adhered them in order after stamping the sentiment and <3. I love this Paper Smooches city skyline! I added some patterned paper and stitching and voila! πŸ™‚

I thought this would be a fun hello card to pop into the mail!

Supplies I used: Paper Smooches Super 2 dies and All Year Cheer for the Hello. The stenciled background isΒ  Altenew’s Halftone and then paper isΒ  Ombre Stripes from Lil’ Inkers! πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for stopping by! And thanks to the FMS for being so awesome to me this month! πŸ™‚ Great fun!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Freshly Made Sketches–Week Two! :)

Hello again! Once again, I’m excited to be a Guest Designer on week two for the Freshly Made Sketches crew! You can check out their fun challenge blog HERE. Lots of great cards to oooh and ahhhh over!! πŸ™‚

And here is this week’s sketch:For this card, I blended on some Distress Oxide ink to Neenah Solar White cardstock and then stamped this Avery Elle image on top. I used this little pencil image to stamp repeatedly on the panel before stitching them all together to finish it off.

If I made this again, I think I’d try and find some simply patterned paper to use vs. the solid persimmon. But who knows! LOL! Either way, I thought this would be fun to give to someone this week, for sure!

I added a little twine to wrap it up (literally) and done! πŸ™‚ This is Avery Elle’s Little Minds stamp set (I believe this set is retired?) Still gets a great workout around here though–especially during Teacher Appreciation week!.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you’ll join the fun over at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Freshly Made Sketches Guest! :)

Happy Wednesday! Today, I have the fun opportunity to be the Guest Designer for the Freshly Made Sketches crew! Thank you to my crafty friend Jennifer Timko,Β  for inviting me to join in this month! You can check out their inspiring challenge blog HERE!

And here is this week’s sketch:

And here is my take! πŸ™‚ I thought this Avery ElleΒ  Critter Crew stamp was perfect for celebrating a new home! πŸ™‚ My friend and her family just moved into a new house yesterday, and there are five of them–too fitting! πŸ™‚

I colored these AE cuties with C opic Markers and added them to an MFT Balloon diecut from the Balloons STAX.

This sentiment is from Avery Elle’s Home Sweet Home, which I believe is retired? The patterned paper is Lawn Fawn’s Gotta Have Gingham Paper Pad ( ❀ ). I am so excited about welcoming them all home. ❀

Thanks so much for stopping by! And thanks so much to the Freshly Made Sketches team for having me along this month! πŸ™‚

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚
