Sixty-one FMS#311

I've already used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches once, but I liked it so much that I've put together another card. Recently I made a video explaining how I will often use the same sketch over and over, the challenge is to make each card different. Kind of like CASE-ing myself this time! Because I've used the lovely Wood Textures DSP again, and the same sentiment, they are very similar.

It is a dark look and this time a pair of numerals have been added for a 'lift'. The stamp and die bundle has retired. I couldn't understand why Nailed It had such a short lifespan, but I imagine with all the tradesmen/handymen in my family I will keep on using this for some time to come.

Colouring with Stampin' Blends was a bit different and I do like the way it has added a shadow to the screwdriver handle. Even on this simple stamped spanner on the inside it has coloured beautifully. I'm  really enjoying these alcohol markers.


  Any orders in my online shop with the Host code receive a gift from me in the post. Since November is my birthday month, I am adding a handmade birthday card as well, for you to send to someone else.


  1. What a fun personalized card! And I love how you've colored these tools. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  2. What a great card! Love those big numbers and the tools! Great background! Very masculine! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. I love how using a sketch in different ways can help create such different cards. This is really great!! So glad you joined us this week at FMS!
