Tuesday Morning Sketches #436

Hello! Thank you for stopping by!  I'm a little late with my post this morning.  I went out last night with son and setting up my post completely slipped my mind!  I guess I still had vacation on the brain.  LOL

Anyway.... this week's revisited sketch is up and it's Debbie's pick.  I'm glad she picked this one, it's one of favorites, too.  My card features papers from DCWV, stamps and dies from MFT Stamps.

You can't really tell in the photo that the brown of the butterfly and the sentiment is embossed with brown embossing powder.  Whoever said embossing powder goes bad is only partially correct.  This embossing powder is probably 20 years old.  I am totally not kidding!  It was probably one of the first I ever purchased when I was first introduced to Stampin' Up! - and I probably bought it to pair with the Button Bear stamp set I purchased which was the first stamp set I ever bought from SU!.  How's that for a blast from the past.  It actually embossed really well, but it didn't stick in places.

Anyway, still love how the card turned out.  Please come join us!  Don't forget to visit the design team blogs - they work hard for you every week.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #435

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by.  It's been awhile, but it has been a wonderful break.  I've been crocheting again and I can't seem to stop.

So if you've been a friend of TMS for awhile then you know at the beginning of every year we revisit some of our favorite sketches from the past year.  Up first is Carol's choice and she picked a great sketch by Janice.  My card features the Dahlia Turn-about stamp set by Concord and 9th.  My sisters gave me an Original size MISTI as an I-love-you-gift, we weren't exchanging Christmas gifts this year, so I was pretty excited to use the MISTI with this turn-about stamp.

My card also features dies by Papertrey Ink and CC Designs.  Ink colors are by Hero Arts.  My sentiment didn't stand out as much as I'd hoped and it wasn't until I embossed it that I remembered the dark blue embossing powder that may have worked better.  Oh well - the card is still pretty.

Please join us over at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  There is a super cute embossing folder available for the prize!   Also, visit the team's blogs, too.  Leave them some much deserved love!  I look forward to a new year of creativity with them and you.


Have a great day!
