Freshly Made Sketches


Follow your Art

Hello there! I’m back with another card! I used Freshly Made Sketch #407 to create this card. I used White Daisy from CTMH for the card base. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Follow Your Art DSP for the background that is matted onto Coastal Cabana Cardstock.

The stamp set is It Starts with Art bundled with diecut from Stampin’ Up! I stamped those onto White Daisy cardstock with Intense Black, Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral then I ran it through the diecut machine. I used the bigshot to do this. I used Stampin’ Up!’s 3/4″ circle puncher (retired) and 1/2″ circle puncher for the buttons. I used the 3-D foam dots to pop up some of the buttons. I colored in the ribbon spools with those following tri-blend markers from CTMH in those following colors: Ice Grey, Gold Brown, Green Turqouise, Jade Green, Pale Pink, True Black & Blender.

For the sentiment strip; I used the Intense Black Inkpad to stamp this quote “follow your art” from the stamp set onto White Daisy cardstock. I took a small strip from one of the Follow Your Art DSP for the matting for the white strip. I used this Sentiment Label (A-7) from Simon Says Stamp.

For the final touch up; I added the Silver Glitter Gems from CTMH to give it a little bling! Hope you enjoyed this card!

Until then 🙂


Love you Gnome

OH MY GOODNESS! I love this cute gnomes! Those are from Simon Says Stamp! I had recieved December 2019 Monthly Subscription, but I just ran out of time due to the holiday. The kit is currently out of stock, but you can put in notification request. Since the kit was pretty much geared toward to Christmas so I did some modification of my own for Valentine’s Day. Be aware that there are two diferent sizes of the gnomes. The SMALL one is included in the kit. To order the LARGE gnome – you will need to go to this link.

I used the Freshly Made Sketch #411 to create this card. Most of the products are from the kit. Supply list are below.

I used the CTMH’s Basic Heart Die-cut for the heart. The sentiment tag and gray label both are from Stampin’ Up! however, they both are retired.

According to Simon Says Stamp; those products are what is in the kit:
