Freshly Made Sketches 246

It’s the weekend peeps! What’s on for you?! I will be at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, as always! LOL! Today there is a private crop so I will only be staying until around 2:00 and then I’m going to attempt to get some stuff done around the house. Although, I have been longing to go to Long Beach for a nice walk along the boardwalk. We’ll see which wins out! Nick was at the store yesterday and we switched the storage room and the kitchen. We need more space to keep stuff and get a little more organized and the kitchen was a little bigger than the storage room, problem solved! Sue came up to the store yesterday too and hung out with me. We rearranged some stuff and straighten up. I saw Angie for a bit before I left, she had her art journaling class last night. Always something fun going on at the store!

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

Freshly Made Sketches 246

Oh, a tag! LOL! The card base for today is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out another piece and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner for my background. The tag is a piece of Kraft Card Stock that is cut out with the Tim Holtz Tags Collection Framelits. The reinforcement is cut from Gold Mirror Card. Iย adhered the tag to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner with a piece of May Arts Hemp Twine tied though the top. Anotherย piece of Ivory 110lb is die cut with one of the dies from the Spellbinders Die of the Month 7 Kit with my Platinum Machine. I also embossed it and adhered it to the tag with a Glue Dot. The leaves and berries are from the same set, cut from red and green, and the feathers are from the Spellbinders Feathers Shapeabilities Dies, they are cut from Gold Mirror Card. I also used a Glue Dot to adhere them. My greeting is from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb. That is adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I added a dot of Multi-Matte Medium under the twine to keep it in place and that finished the card! Yes, I think that my obsession with feathers is back, especially the Spellbinders ones! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! I wish you all a spectacular Saturday! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Carol! I love a card with just some fun die cuts and a nice greeting! I really am leaning towards the boardwalk! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Elegant, many occasions for this card. Love creating with dies and punches. Great way to use of scraps, however my scrap box appears to be bottomless.
    A walk on the boardwalk over house keeping any day. Especially if the weather cooperates. I have a grad party to go to……then we shall see. Still high humidity and temps n the upper 90’s, so not to much outside time today./

    1. Thank you Linda! I really do enjoy using just dies to make a little collage! It definitely is a great way to get rid of scrap, lord knows I have enough! LOL! I ended up staying home and napping and then crafting, I will do the beach one day during the week when I can get someone to go with me! I actually really enjoyed the heat yesterday, and it was a scorcher here! Love the Summer! Hope that your party was fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
