Let Faith Be Your Biggest Fear Meets Artistry Blooms

by Joanne James12. October 2020 07:00

It's Monday and to start the week I have a short post to share a couple of cards I made with this week's Freshly Made Sketches layout:


They are both encouragement cards, this time with the optional addition of pink, perfect for the current Time Out challenge. One of my cards also features an ombre background which is the trend over at Just Us Girls this week. Here's the first one:


And here's the second one, featuring another of the papers in the Artistry Blooms paper pack: 


Both cards feature a wonderful encouraging sentiment from the 'Ridiculously Awesome' stamp set, that is rather appropriate today as I am headed off for shoulder surgery. I am putting all my faith on my surgeon, that's for sure!

So which one is your favourite? I love them both and will be making a few more with these papers this month whilst they are on offer in the DSP sale :-)

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


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Both of your cards are so perfect for our challenge. Loving the paper you used, the paper pad must be stunning. You co-ordinated the colours of the die-cut hearts so well, as with the ink you used for the sentiments, which really pop against all that white. And I'm very jealous of your bow tying abilities too. So very happy you shared these with us at TIME OUT!

These papers look amazing! I especially love the monochrome ombre one. Would work with so many images and sentiments! This sentiment is very beautiful. Thank you for joining us at Time Out!
