Tuesday Morning Sketches #339

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  This week's TMS sketch is up and it's awesome!  This one is created by Debbie and it truly inspired.  Our sponsor this week is Sami Stamps, however, my card isn't featuring one of her images.  The other team members did great with her images and Sami is always so generous to give us stamps, I just don't want to get greedy.

So my card today features two stamps by Fun Stampers Journey.  I actually used, finally, the Grand Caliber that I got with my FSJ Coaches kit.  It's bulky.  Not a complaint - a learning experience.  I've used Cuttlebug for so long, this was.... bulky.  But I used it with a Spellbinders embossing folder because the folder wouldn't go through the Cuttlebug.


The stamp sets are Sweet You (SS-0099) (flowers) and Every Day (SS-0164) (sentiments).  I stamped the images with Black Licorice Fusion ink to test how well they stand up to Copic coloring.  Not too bad!  The paper I used is from a Botanicals paper pad I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby last year.  I did add some shimmer to the roses and leaves with clear Wink of Stella but the picture didn't capture it as well.

I hope to bring you more cards and projects sharing the beautiful images from Fun Stampers Journey, but so far, my wallet isn't allowing me to.  So I may end up overdoing the 3 stamps and 1 ATC stamp that I have.  Crossing fingers, praying and thinking happy thoughts that I'll hear if I get another promotion at work.

Thanks again for stopping by.  I do appreciate your visit and please be sure to visit my amazing team and leave them some love.  They deserve it.  Have a great week.  See you over at TMS.

This is gorgeous, Melissa!! I love how you stamped the flowers around the sentiment then fussy cut some for that element! Your coloring is wonderful, and now I see another EF that I "need." :D
