Freshly Made Sketches

Hi everyone!! I hope you are all doing well!! I have been terribly busy lately, visiting my daughter at college, visiting my Aunt and going to funerals. I have had time in my craft room BUT no time to blog much.

Today I am sharing a card I created using Freshly Made Sketches #361 as my inspiration.


It is a bit colorful but I the yellow card stock matched the yellow flower exactly and so I decided to use it for the background.


The stamp set is from Concord and 9th. I originally bought it to make my daughter some monogrammed notecards but that goal didn't last too long.

Here is the sketch that I was inspired by:

I actually dug out some Doodlebug paper Frills that I have had for YEARS for the scalloped border. I have them in about every color so it was kind of fun to dig them out and put them on a card.



That is all from me today!! I hope you are all having a FABULOUS weekend!!

The Last Day of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Holiday Release: Pear Tree Fri-Dies

It has been a LOOOOOONNNNNGGGG week here and am so happy that it is Friday!!!

Today is the last day of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps holiday release showcase. I created a card using the new Pear Tree Fri-Dies and the previously released Partridge in a Pear Tree Stamp Set.


I started off this card by stamping a sentiment in from the Partridge in a Pear Tree stamp set onto an aqua A2 card front. I added a piece of patterned paper over the front.


I then wrapped some jute around the front of the card three times. I adhered a snowflake that I had die cut using the Flurry Fri-Dies over the jute.


Next I stamped the little bird from the Partridge stamp set and die cut it out using the new Pear Tree Fri-Dies. I used foam adhesive to pop it over a branch I free hand cut with some scissors. I covered the bird with clear sparkle marker and Glossy Accents.


My last step was to adhere a couple of pears cut using the Pear Tree dies over the branch.

I think this is my favorite card from the whole week!! I love how the little bird came out and the pears are darling!!

Day 5 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Holiday Release: Naughty'isms Stamp Set and matching Naughty Fri-Dies

Happy Thursday everyone!! I hope you all are recovered from Halloween. Are you in a candy coma like me? I always eat too much but then cannot wait to get rid of it all by the next day.

Today I am back with another project using the new CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Naughty'isms stamp set and matching Naughty Fri-Dies.


I started off my card by stamping the present from the new Naughty'isms stamp set in red and kraft ink across the front of a kraft colored, A2 card.


I then layered green and red patterned paper over the card front. I used the Naughty Fri-Dies to die cut the sentiment and adhered it on top of the red patterned paper. I covered the sentiment with clear sparkle marker.


I stamped the present again on to various patterned papers. I fussy cut pieces out of each and then paper pieced the present together. To complete the card, I adhered the package to the card front.

That is it for me today. Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog to see some other fabulous creations by the design team. All new products are now in the NEW section of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Store. Use my code NORASENTME to get 15% off your entire purchase!!

Day 4 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Holiday Release: Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah

Happy Halloween!!

It is day 4 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps holiday release. I am showcasing two cards that I created, one with the new Merry Christmas Fri-Die set and the other with the new Happy Hanukkah Fri-Die. It seems strange to showcase Christmas and Hanukkah stamps on Halloween but it is fun to be different!!

I started off my first card by randomly stamping gray stars from the Star of David stamp set across the front of a top-folded, white, A2 card.


Using the Happy Hanukkah Fri-Die set, I die cut three blue "happy" sentiments and adhered them down the middle of the card front.


Next I die cut "Hanukkah" in silver using the same Fri-Die set. I adhered this underneath the "happy" sentiments.


My last step was to adhere clear rhinestones randomly across the card front.

I started off my second card by using the Funky Flakes Fri-Dies set and embossing them into a white piece of cardstock. I adhered this over a white, A2 card front at an angle.


I then used the snowflakes from the new Dashing stamp set and randomly stamped them across a piece of aqua card stock. I adhered this over the embossed card panel.


Next I used the new Merry Christmas Fri-die to die cut the Christmas sentiment. I adhered both to the aqua stamped panel. I used Diamond Stickles to cover the sentiment to give it some shine.


I die cut a few Funky Flakes from white and aqua cardstock and adhered them to the left of the sentiment. I then added some bits from the white snowflake around the sentiment and covered them with Diamond Stickles.

Another easy card to create in bulk for the holidays!!!
