Artfully Composed Suite All The Hugs Birthday Card

by Joanne James13. June 2022 09:45

Happy Monday everyone! I had a little extra crafty time yesterday so decided to make a quick card using the current Freshly Made Sketches layout by Jen T, which I love:

Those stems were a great opportunity to make another card using the skeleton leaves in the Tropical Layers Dies combined with the Artfully Layered stamp set and a sliver of Artfully Composed designer series paper  - take a look:

 

I added a little hatched diecut detail to my mat layer and used the colours from the paper for my leaves and sentiment, finishing with a sprinkling of retired enamel dots for a little extra pop of colour: 

 

I am so sad this bundle is retiring at the end of this month - the Tropical Layers Dies are just fabulous and the sentiments in the co-ordinating stamp set so useful. If this bundle is still on your wishlist, grab it now before it's too late - it's currently on sale, links to the online store are below!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day - mine is all stamping an admin today! I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Until then, happy stampin'!

Artfully Layered Clean And Simple Leaf Card

by Joanne James16. May 2022 10:30

Happy Monday everyone! Today I'm sharing another card using Amy's fabulous sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week:

       

I went for a slightly more conventional take on the sketch than I did with yesterday's card. I was also inspired by that cheese plant leaf in the blue vase that is bottom left on the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration photo badge - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

I already had a blank banner cut on my desk from making yesterday's card, and the piece of Artfully Composed designer series paper and the inside dark green pieces of my leaf were leftovers from other projects, so I cut another leaf in Bermuda Bay and paper-pieced the insides and border edge together, stamped the banner and added to my layered cardbase - simple!

 

This is a great sketch for using up bits and pieces and is definitely a keeper - thank you Amy! I'm also linking today's card up over at CASology where the cue word this month is 'botanical'.
