Freshly Made Sketches #127

Another cool sketch again this week at Freshly Made Sketches…….

I thought this one would be great for a masculine card, and since I haven’t played much with the Harvest Blessings stamp set, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity.

My background paper comes from the Soho Subway DSP and I only noticed after the card was complete that there is a little blob of blue at the bottom.  No, not an ink blog, it is definitely part of the paper, I just didn’t quite manage to get the paper cut so that it was off the edge.  I’m not sure if my faux stitching around the edge hides the blob, or actually highlights it, but never mind!
The tractor from Harvest Blessings is stamped in Pumpkin Pie, the flag in Early Espresso run through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then sanded to get that lovely effect with the Coordinations cardstock, and I have used a retired paperclip with a knot of twine at the top.  Nice and simple!
Make sure you check out all the talent at Freshly Made Sketches!
Happy Stamping!

Soho Subway

This is one of my favourite patterned papers from this year’s Annual Catalogue, it’s great for those masculine projects.
So with Father’s Day fast approaching us here in Australia (1st September), I thought I would offer a class using the Soho Subway DSP, and we will make a card plus a holder for those store Gift Cards, or some other small gift.

Of course, you could use it for a birthday gift or any other special occasion.

You need to contact me to book into the class, which will be held at my place (hopefully with most of the major renovations completed by then!!) on Wed 28th August at 7.30pm, or Saturday 31st August at 2pm.  Please send me an email if you would like to come as places are limited.

Happy Stamping!
