Freshly Caught Up...Again

Hello Stampers!

I was taking a break from HYCCT cards (very few of which I have posted yet!) to complete the most recent Freshly Made Sketches challenges.  I was all caught up n those less than a month ago; I don't want to fall behind again!  My goal of finishing the 2015 FMS challenges is still on track!  But, as I went along, I also incorporated some HYCCT after all!  I made the cards last night, and took pictures after my 2 appointments this goes!

Here's sketch #208...barely on time to post to the blog link up.  I used summer starfruit for the base, along with some starfruit dsp from the "Soho" pack,  I added quilted early espresso ribbon.  Some "Comfort Cafe" dsp is matted with cajun craze.  The sentiment is from "Best Yet" stamped in cajun on very vanilla.  I used my tag punch so that it fits the "Tag You're It" HYCCT challenge, edged it with my marker and added some bakers twine.  Finally, a couple of cajun craze candy dots finish it off.

FMS #207 is perfect for showing off designer series paper.  I received this paper a couple of years ago in a card kit swap.  I used some of the paper and images for HYCCT cards, but wanted to use the rest up instead of setting it aside again. #UseMyStash!  Unfortunately, I have no idea what the name of the dsp is, but it goes perfectly with this river rock card base.  I also have a bit of bordering blue paper and ink, with the sentiment from "Best Yet" on a scallop circle.  Some non-SU enamel dots finish it off. I made two of these in almost no time.   

And here is FMS #206...I really like the circles.  I used three different SU punches, and the mid-sized circle is popped up with dimensions.  I used river rock again, plus the dsp from that card kit.  The sentiment is from SU's "Whimsical Words" stamped in chocolate chip.  I added some early espresso bakers twine for simple embellishment.  This HYCCT challenge, "I am a Warrior," had us use strong images or phrases to relay a fighting spirit.  I will likely try another card...this card seems too timid!  LOL

Thanks for coming by.  I hope to upload more cards tonight, and post throughout the week.

  1. I LOVE seeing the cards you create for this challenge, and always think what a cool way to use up DSP too. I will have to go give that challenge a look see once I get back home! Beautiful cards. SO cool that you are also creating for the HYCCT challenges!

  2. Love what you've done with these sketches. Your combinations of colors and patterns are really nice. Great job!

  3. I love these gorgeous colors on this trio of beauties, Kim! These designer papers are so perfect for these sketches!
