Freshly Made...Inspired

Happy Thursday Friends! Hope the new year is going well for you.  I honestly had wanted to create more and share it with you all, and  that hasn't happened too much. Or I haven't made time to create as much is more like it.  Seems like cleaning and organizing my craft room is a big hurdle which seems to stop me for a bit, but I'll keep tackling it in small steps.  This week when I saw the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches it stumped for a bit but it inspired me to finally create. I wanted to create a Valentine's theme card and I love the way it turned out. Make sure you check out what the designers from the Freshly Made Sketches blog created with this sketch.

I combined several Valentine's theme stamp sets, framelits, embossing folder and colors for my card. My card base is Rose Red card stock, layered with Basic Black card stock and then layered with Sweet Sugarplum. I used the new Falling Petals Textured Embossing Folder from the Occasions catalog. I also used the Sealed with Love Bundle, which has matching framelits. Aren't the mini envelopes cute!  I also used the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, with Red Glimmer Paper and the heart is from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits cut out from watercolor paper and then watercolored with Rose Red ink with aqua painter. I also used the sentiments from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.

This card got me super excited to continue creating, going to duplicate this card and mail it out for Valentine's Day. Yay.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great Thursday.

Until next time.

Happy 2017!

Hello Stampers! Happy New Year!  It's a new beginning! Time for a fresh start and new adventures. I definitely plan on creating more this year and I'm excited to share it with you all.  So this 1st day of January, we have a fun blog hop for you. My fellow Di's Country INKers and I hope you like our creations featuring items from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.

So if you are just stopping by, you just came from Barb's blog. She always have something beautiful to share with us. I played along with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. My goal for 2017 is to play along with more blog sketches and I love their creations.

I used the Sealed with Love Bundle. The stamp set and the matching frame lit dies are so cute!  Can't wait to make all my Valentine's Day cards and projects with this bundle. I also used the new Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.

Up next is Ellie! Can't wait to see what she has in store for us.


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope the first day of 2017 is a great one for you!
