Freshly Made Sketches #81

Hello! It was a nice day yesterday for the most part, not as warm as Tuesday but nice. We had a short thunderstorm later and Winston doesn’t like that all all. He shook for about 15 minutes after it was over. Poor Winston. We are supposed to get some more rain today and a lot more tomorrow and it’s going back down to the 50’s. I did enjoy the taste of warm weather. I had to sit in a 3 hour class yesterday and it was pure torture! I sort of zoned out for most of it. So, Stampin’ Up! has lots going on at the moment and soon it will be time for the new catalog! Have you seen the new Wood Mount stamp cases? Check out the YouTube video here! Busy busy!!

Today’s card – Freshly Made Sketches #81 – By Cindy…

Freshly Made Sketches #81

My card starts off with a base of Soft Suede and the background is Fine Feathers at the top and Brushed Gold Card Stock with some “Vintage” Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon. The bird and cage are from the Nature Walk Stamp Set, the cage is heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the bird is shaded with some eye shadow applicators! For the greeting, Teeny Tiny Wishes is punched out with the Word Window Punch and shortened. I also flipped the sketch upside down! I hope you enjoyed my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Thanks for spending a little time with me today! Have a good one!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

  1. Great combination of stamp sets, they were made for each other! The gold embossing is beautiful. Love that video, too. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new boxes!

  2. I really love this colour combo, Justin! Great card :o) Oh – and that soft colouring on the bird’s belly is gorgeous!
