Freshly Made Sketches 199 – jkcards

Freshly Made Sketches 199

Hi there and happy Friday to you! Yes, it was another nice day yesterday and work wasn’t too bad either! After work I stopped home for a bit and started my card for today before heading over to Scrap-A-Latte for the first night of my joint card class with Michael. He brought his dad so we went and had dinner, some pizza, before class. It was nice to get to meet his dad Joel, I now know where Michael gets his sense of humor from! Class was fun as usual and everyone enjoyed the projects! I’ll have mine posted tomorrow! Tonight we have the second night and then Michael has another baby book class there tomorrow. Sunday we will be at The Ink Pad and staying at Kim’s Saturday night! I really don’t want the Summer to end!

The card that I have for you today is for Freshly Made Sketches 199th challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 199

I can’t believe that they will be at challenge 200 next week! That’s pretty cool! My card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the bird from the Tim Holtz Bird Feather Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink on the card. My pocket is made using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool and a Simon Says Stamp Stamp Pocket. I sealed a piece of Smoky Slate in the bottom and then cut out three feathers from Crumb Cake with the Simon Says Stamp Feathers Dies. They are spattered with some Heidi Swapp Citron, Teal and White Color Shine Spray. I added them and a few Hazel & Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to the pouch and sealed the top. A piece of Red Line Tape (Sticky Strip) behind the strip of Smoky Slate adheres it to the card. The greeting is a piece of Solar White cut out with the Simon Says Stamp You Craft Die and some Pear Pizzaz with the rest of the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp You Photopolymer Stamp Set heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The left side is flagged and then I mounted it to the card with Foam Tape. I do love using the Fuse to make a shaker card, the goodies that you put inside move around really nicely and you can do some creative pockets too! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you, as always, for coming by to see what I’m up to! Have yourself an awesome Friday! 🙂

  1. Fancy that! Justin using feathers? 🙂 Glad to see you haven’t forgotten about feathers Justin! I really like the faded image in back of the feathers, just a great idea. The card as a whole is gorgeous……… glad you didn’t forget to put a few sequins in there!

    Sounds like you have another great weekend in store. Keep on enjoying the summer. There will be plenty of quiet rest and relax time once it’s over. Can’t wait to see what you and Michael have cooked up for the class. You are going to share right? I’m surprised we didn’t get to see a photo of Michael and his Dad and you all together. Hey, enjoy your weekend and have yourself a Fabulous Friday. Love and hugs! XO 🙂
