Tuesday Morning Sketches #461

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's by Debbie.  It's a great sketch that will be one that you use over and over again.

My card features Thinking of You Always by Pink and Main, papers from the Spellbinders card kit that I've been sharing a lot of lately and a stencil that I made using my Silhouette Cameo.


I really love how this card turned out.  It's soft palette is just lovely.  I used Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink and it paired perfectly with the teal foil paper from the kit.



I also did something that I have been thinking about doing for a long time.  I have wanted to make videos to share some techniques that can be combined with our sketches.  I hope this will give you some inspiration to think outside the sketch.

My video isn't great and I am working on making improvements.  In fact I've already made a very important step by getting a set up for better overhead videos that aren't so far away and will be from my perspective.  Please be kind.  :0)

I hope to see you at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and can't wait to see your card!  Also, please visit the design team.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #460

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.  Great for using up those scraps of paper that we all have!  Also a great way to feature a large sentiment or maybe a great border.

My card is another one from the card kit I've been sharing.  This one features all the great papers that came in the kit and the little square die.



The card base is the gray card stock that came in the kit.  I then used some scraps of the pretty papers.  I used the sweet sentiment die and stamps from Pink and Main. I cut it from the teal foil paper and black fun foam.  I embossed the "thoughts of you" with Nuvo white embossing  powder.  It's a little choppy because I didn't use my MISTI and should have on this textured card stock.


At this angle you can see how pretty and shiny that foil paper is.

I hope to see you at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and can't wait to see your card!  Also, please visit the design team.
