Freshly Made Sketches 184

Home / 2014-2015 Annual Catalog / Freshly Made Sketches 184

Hello there my friends and a happy Saturday to you! I had a good day yesterday, work was quiet, went to Monty’s for lunch with Robin and had a Caesar Salad slice that was yummy! After work I came home and had some dinner with Taylor and my parents then came to my house and started working on some projects instead of having a movie night. I Skyped with Andrea for a bit and then FaceTimed with Michael. I worked on a few cards while he worked on an adorable baby book. Hopefully he will share it on his blog soon! This morning I’ll be finishing up some stuff and then heading over to Scrap-A-Latte for a bit to see what National Scrapbooking day is all about! It’s supposed to be really nice here today and tomorrow! I’m looking forward to a few rides with the top down! What are you all up to today?

My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 184

I stayed really true to the sketch! My card starts with a base of Whisper White Card Stock cut to 4″ wide. My background is a piece of Sahara Sand, I put some Sweet Sadie Washi Tape down the left side and wrapped it around the back before I adhered it to the card base. The strip of paper is from the “Vintage” Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration and is adhered to the card with a piece of Foam Tape behind it. I dug up the tag from the very “Vintage” Stamp-A-Tag Kit and heat embossed the greeting from the Painted Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Twine is tied in a bow leaving the tails extra long and the tag is adhered to the card with some Foam Tape. Finally, a few Pretty Pink Posh Tangerine Sequins are randomly adhered to finish off the card with a little sparkle. I love the simple modern feel to the card thanks to the DSP! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for checking in with me and have yourselves the best Saturday ever! 🙂

  1. Good Morning Justin:

    You make the most perfect dang bows of anyone on the internet! What’s your secret? I have a question for you. When I make a card I decorate the base. It seems you make a base and then cover the front with the “piece of art” you’ve created to decorate it. Is there a reason I don’t know about? Is this a way of saving on card stock or does it make it easier for you to work with a flat sheet of card stock and then mount it on a base card? Does adding the extra card stock increase the cost of postage to mail it? Boy, I’m just full of questions today aren’t I? LOL

    I am going to craft all afternoon. The hubs went to a car show, I have my stuffed shells all ready for dinner – I just need to make a loaf of bread later, and I did the ironing yesterday. Yeah! A weekend to do whatever I wish and I wish to make cards. Lucky, lucky me.

    I hope you have an amazingly fun day today and that the beautiful weather for tomorrow holds true for Long Island as well as Maine. Have yourself a Superb Saturday my friend. Love & Hugs, XO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you so much! The secret is that you have to tie them backwards so the are parallel to the knot! I like to have a White card base and it also saves on colored card stock. I still adhere the cover to the base and then work from there. It also costs the same to mail and makes the card a little sturdier. I love question!
      I hope that you did have a very crafty day yesterday! I had a nice relaxing day! It really is nice when we get a weekend of just fun isn’t it?!
      I did have a great day! I hope that you did too! It was a little cooler here yesterday than they said it would be but it’s nice thins morning. Love and hugs to you my friend! XOXO 🙂

  2. Happy National Scrabooking Day! LOL I know you dont scrapbook but its really all about papercrafting and creativity. Have fun! I’m off for a day of scrapbooking with my BFF but I had to have my Justin “fix” first. Awesome creation as usual, clean, simple yet WOW.

    1. The same to you Linda! Yes, it is all about paper crafting! I did have a great day! I hope that you enjoyed your day with your friend! Thanks! So glad that you enjoyed the card! 🙂

  3. I love the combo of the washi with that DSP. So fresh and fun! And the tag with the loopy twine – perfect! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. Thanks very much Jen! I love a little Washi down the side! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend! 🙂
