Lesley also has a new challenge blog called Freshly Made Sketches. The sketches are not necessarily clean and simple, but they do need to be “clean”…no distressing or ruffles & frills! Here is the sketch for this week:
I needed a thank you card, so I pulled out some Spice Cake paper in a color I don’t normally use and challenged myself! Here we go:
The image is from Array of Sunshine (hostess set) and the background is a retired jumbo wheel. The sentiment, stamped on a tag punched from the Jewelry Tag punch, is from Easy Events. I liked this sketch SO much, I made another:
This uses French Foliage with a bow made from the new Quilted Cherry Cobbler ribbon and a glimmer brad:
and the leaf is heat embossed on Vellum cardstock:
This card is also for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week, which is a fall theme.
And finally, a third (I was on a roll):
I was originally going to use Trendy Trees for my focal image, but I already had Easy Events sitting on my desk and I liked it with the combination of trees from Funky Forest, so I just watered colored the image in the same Old Olive. I didn’t put the little element on the horizontal panel as in the sketch, but I am hoping the little heart counts! I am not going to list all my ingredients, so if you have a question, please feel free to email me!
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you have a chance to play with the Paper Players this week, and you may even have your card be featured on our blog! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I had the pleasure of going to a local fair with my friend Cathy on Friday—it was a beautiful chilly day, perfect for looking at cows, sheep and pumpkins!
This is Cassidy at last year’s fair! How she’s changed!
Have a blessed day!
