Freshly Made Sketches 219 & Card Class Cards

I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments yesterday! I have the best blog peeps in the world! Remember that without you I wouldn’t have the opportunity to get to share with you everyday! So as a little surprise I have some blog candy for you! I’m going to take all of the comments from yesterday and randomly pick a winner! I’ll announce who it is on tomorrow’s post! That’s my little way of saying thank you!

Card class was great as it always is, we had some new people and they are all signed up for next month! I got to the store early and had dinner with Renee, some Panera! I had my favorite grilled cheese with tomato soup! After class Melissa stayed behind and helped me clean up! Thanks Melissa! The cards from class will be at the end of today’s post! I came home and had some coffee and relaxed for a bit before calling it a day. Not sure what’s going on for the weekend, how about you?

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge but I want to thank Cindy H. for making me her Perfect Prince for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE! Now for this week’s sketch…

Freshly Made Sketches 219

Another nice and simple one! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Smoky Slate and adhered a piece of paper from the DoodleBug Polar Pals 6×6 Paper Pad on the left and then stamped some snowflakes from the Simon Says Stamp Cute Snowflakes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink on the right. Some SNAIL adheres the panel to the card. The main panel is a piece of Solar White 80lb, I cut out two pieces of it with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. The second piece is then cut with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills Craft Dies. I adhered a sticker from the DoodleBig Polars Pals Icons Cardstock Stickers to the rectangle and then adhered the hill to it with Foam Tape. The penguin and snowflake are also form the same stickers and are adhered to the card with Foam Tape and SNAIL. My greeting is also from the Cute Snowflakes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Smoke Ink too. I adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. A few Pretty Pink Posh Aquamarine, Amethyst and Marshmallow Sequins finish the card! I really do like the DoodleBug Polars Pals goodies a lot, I think that it’s the awesome combination of colors and the cute stickers don’t hurt either! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you so much for your visit and I wish you all a spectacular Saturday! πŸ™‚

  1. Justin,
    Love your Doodlebug card! The igloo and penguin are adorable. I was so inspired by the previous cards you made with these stickers that I ordered them and the Doodlebug paper. Your killing me man! I’m only supposed to order SU stuff….lol.

    1. Hi Gerri!
      Thank you! I think that it’s a really cute line and I love the colors! LOL! We need to branch out every once in a while! πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Justin:

    I love the colors in today’s card. I would never think purple for a snowflake but it’s the perfect color for that DSP! I got a big smile out of “you have a pizza my heart”! lol I mean really, can it get any cuter then that? All the cards from class are so sweet! I love Lawn Fawn stamps and you always find the perfect design for them.

    We had ice last night and now it’s snowing like mad. January has decided to make sure we know it’s mid winter for sure. After today it will be a skiers paradise. So Justin, grab your skis and I’ll pay for the lift ticket. You have yourself a Super Saturday and enjoy the beauty of the season. Love and hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Grace!
      Thank you! I love the colors in that paper, blues, purples and grey make for a nice wintry mix! The class cards are fun and I love that Pizza set! One day you will get to class!!
      Do you know, I have never skied in my life! I think that I would like to try it one day! I’m glad that you are enjoying your weather, I know how much you like it! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  3. Your cards today are the cutest! The penguin and pizza stamps are so cool in your hands. By the way, you worked the color combo yesterday really nicely. We are stoking up the fireplace today. I was diagnosed with bursitis in my hip yesterday. Man, that really hurts! Older age is for the young! I will conquer this too! 2016 is supposed to be my year, so I am just going to face this with my smile and carry on. You stay warm; Grace too! Love and hugs, Nancy B

    1. Thanks so much Nancy! I do love those colors and the Lawn Fawn sets are so much fun! I did have fun coming up with yesterday’s card, the colors were a bit of a challenge but I loved working with them! Sorry to hear about your Bursitis, my friend has that in his shoulder and it’s not fun. You have a great outlook and that makes all the difference! Love and hugs to you!! XOXO πŸ™‚

  4. So glad your class went well! One of these days I’ll make it to one of yours at The Ink Pad. That stackable heart die with the inlay is genius. Enjoy your Saturday!
