Freshly Made Sketches 126 – Hello

Today’s card was made for a sketch challenge that I’m participating in.  Last Monday I started a new online class all about color.  I am re-learning all about colors, the color wheel, complementary colors and analogous colors.  My first assignment was to pick a color scheme that I want to work with, then find everything in my craft stash that matches that color scheme.

Take a look at my color scheme:

Kymona's Color Scheme

These colors are so pretty.  I had to make a card for this sketch using this color scheme.  I had so much fun creating this card.  Knowing the color scheme before hand made this an easy card to make.  There was no battle on which colors from my stash to use.

Here’s the sketch:

Hello Sunshine

Today’s card was inspired by a picture I saw in a magazine this morning.  I didn’t get to take a picture of the layout so I’m going totally off of memory.  I used the new Hello Sunshine stamp set and pattern paper from Lawn Fawn to create this card.

CAS(E) this Sketch!

I am participating in this new card sketch by CAS(E) this Sketch!  Today’s card is a series of three stamped images across the front of the card with the sentiment on top or below.

Take a look:

You make me smile

I was wondering about the smiley face being in black but the more I look at it the more I loved how the card came out.  I balanced the smiley face out with the sentiment in black.  The twine matched the color combo of the sun.  For me this is a well balanced card.  What do you think?

5 Days of Birthday Cards – Day 2

This is my second post of the day.

I was up last night, couldn’t sleep for nothing in the world.  So I decided to make another birthday card for my series.  The colors for this card came from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasion Catalog.  The colors can be found in the Kaleidoscope DSP.  I love the colors in that paper.  I just realized that the two stamp sets are from the Kaledioscope suite as well.  I love how things come together.

5 Days of Birthday Cards – Day 1

I was looking through my stash of cards and I realized that I was really low on birthday cards so I’m going to have a series of birthday card to showcase.  I will make 5 different birthday for this series.

Today’s card is a male’s birthday card.  I love the colors and the shapes that are on this card.  I’m using a lot of different products on my card that are new in my craft corner.

Take a look:

Male Birthday Card Front

The horizontal stripes were made with a new die cut from Papertrey Ink called Stripes Horizontal.   When I was finished with the front of the card I was wondering what will I add to the inside.  And here is what I decided.

Inside mistake

Take a look at that.  Can you believe I made such a big mistake!!!!  I could not believe it.  I wasn’t paying attention and stamp the image upside down.  How could I???  What was I going to do? At first I decided to just not show the inside but I really want to use this card so what can I do to fix this mistake.  Take a look at how I made a come back.

Inside Corrected

I decided to use what I learned in the Insiders class and brought the front of my card to the inside of the card.  All I did was turn the square image 90 degrees for a different look.  I just love it!!!  The card came out so nice.

My mistake caused me to really pull from my creative hat and it made the card pop.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.  Just click on the images below if you want to purchase them.

Washi Tape Box

Hello, I’m here again with another project for you.  I can’t believe it, I’ve been on a roll with my posting.  I’m so happy about that.  I really have been putting some time aside each day dedicated to blogging and that has helped me stay on track.

Today’s box was made with a non-Stampin’ Up! tool, We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Tool.  I couldn’t help myself.  I must say it took me five tries to get it right, but I finally got it.  It turned out beautifully to me.  Take a look.
