Freshly Made Sketches 242

Happy weekend peeps! We had another warm sunny day here on Long Island! Perfect weather for my little car! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was good times as always! Renee went and had her hair did and the Novack sisters stopped by with a friend of theirs for a while. I managed to get my Reverse Confetti order in finally! Can’t wait to play with their new goodies! Angie came in around 5:00 to get ready for her Art Journaling Class. I left around 6:30 and had dinner at my parents. My sister-in-law said that she thinks that her contractions are starting! Daniel will have a new baby brother or sister soon! Can’t wait to meet him or her! I ran out last night to get gas and pick up a few things from Target. While I was roaming the aisles I came across Blueberry Oreos! If you see them and you like blueberry pie pick yourself up a pack! They are quite tasty! Especially with a cut of coffee! Today I will work on my cards for next month’s card class while I’m at the store. The administrative stuff can wait, I need to have a crafty day!

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches to share with you…

Freshly Made Sketches 242

I promise that this will be the last layered die cut card for a while! You know me, I get on a kick! LOL! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints background onto the front in Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder. Two circles are cut from Soft Sky and So Saffron using the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. I used some Gold Mirror Card to cut out the ticket and the word fun from the Spellbinders Amused 1 Die D-Lites and Etched Alphabet Shapeablities. The big top is also from the Amused 1 set and is cut from Wisteria Wonder. Some Black 110lb and a piece of Strawberry Slush cut out with the mustache and bow tie which are from the Spellbinders Hipster 2 Die D-Lites. The flag is cut from Silver Glitter Paper. I adhered the FUN to the So Saffron Circle with Multi-Matte Medium and the big top, flag and ticket to the Soft Sky circle with Dot Runner. My bow tie and mustache are adhered with Foam Tape. A little more Dot Runner holds the So Saffron circle to the card and Foam Tape adheres the Soft Sky one. I tucked in the banner cut from Coastal Cabana from the Amused 1 Set under the top circle and the card is finished! I do love the layering of dies cuts to make a “fun” different card! LOL! I hope that you like today’s card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by today! I wish you all a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

  1. Good morning! Don’t worry about getting on a kick — I love your layered die cut cards, or any of your cards for that matter. The mustache and bow tie are so whimsical on the tent! Fun it is!
    A baby! How exciting! I can’t wait to see Daniel’s reaction. Lots of photos please. Have a fantastic Saturday…I feel a baby coming…Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Hello Nancy!
      LOL! Phew! Sometimes I just can’t stop myself! So happy that you enjoyed the card! I have to have a mustache whenever I can!
      Yes, Can’t wait to be an Uncle again! I will post pictures as soon as I can! You have a super Saturday! Hugs to you! 🙂

  2. Hi Justin!

    Super fun card today. What? No sequins? How did that happen? LOL Just teasing. Love today’s card and you are right, putting all those die cuts together really is a lot of fun. I find that I am doing that more and more lately. In fact, although I hate to admit out loud, I have only been buying stamp sets that have matching dies with them. I’m not one of those crafters that likes to color and certainly not one that likes to snip, snip, snip with my scissors. Shame on me huh? I think the not wanting to snip is because I do enough of that when making a quilt. As for the coloring, I have no idea. Anywhooooooooo, your card today is really fabulous.

    So congratulations are in order for your brother and Erika. I join Nancy is asking for lots of photos. I think Daniel will be thrilled to have a new sibling and I’m sure your parents are walking on a cloud waiting for this new baby. You have yourself a Super Saturday my friend. Love & Hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you! LOL! I sat there and pondered sequins for a while last night and then thought, I’ll skip a day! I love the layered look of die cuts! You can do so many things with them! I love a stamp set and matching dies, makes it so easy!! Coloring is a lot of fun a relaxing! I can just see you stamping a bunch of images and sitting on your front porch coloring away!
      Yes, I will be an Uncle again! There will be lots of picture, I promise! I hope Daniel is happy abut the new baby! There is not much he can do! LOL! You have a fantastic day my friend! 🙂

  3. Nothing wrong with lyered die cuts, gorgeous card. And defiantly, craft time vs admin time. Cute, cute, cute.
