Tuesday Morning Sketches #520

Hey everyone - thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one - an easy one!

My card features papers from a Simon Says Stamp monthly kit, stamps from Concord and 9th, a tiny scallop die from Simon, ink colors and Nuvo Drops by Nuvo/Tonic Studio.


This card was really easy to put together.  The paper is from a 6x6 pack by Moda Scrap.  I just cut it with the die cut diagonally which gave one piece for a card.  Turned the die over and cut a smidge off and that was for a second card.  This paper is so pretty and is my sister Theresa's favorite color combo.

I hope to see you over at the blog and I ask that you leave me a word or two so I know you were here.  But, please go over to the blog and join us and leave plenty of love for our team and our guest designers.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #519

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up and this one is by Debbie.  It's such a great sketch and surely one you'll use again and again.

My card features some paper that I've had in my stash for a really long time from My Mind's Eye.  Stamps from the Wreath Builder set by GinaK, dies from Spellbinders and MFT and just a touch of Crystal Nuvo Drops.


I do wish the circle element was just a tad bigger but this way you can see a lot more of that gorgeous paper!  The border is from the flip side of this whatever you call this paper pattern.  LOL - Can't quite call it plaid but it's diamond shaped like argyle.  I just call it pretty!

I hope to see you over at the blog to join in with us!  But be sure to visit the team - they work so very hard to share with you week after week.  And if you're in the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas I'll be sending you safe and happy thoughts.  Please return them!  I'm in FL.  I'm not afraid of Dorian but he's being shifty!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #518

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I do appreciate your visit.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I love this sketch.

My card features the large die of month - I think it's June 2019 - from Spellbinders.  It also features a stencil I cut using the Silhouette Cameo.  I absolutely love it!


I hope you love this color combo as much as I do!  Who knew Apricot Appeal (SU!) and Picked Raspberry Distress ink would go so well together.  I then pulled in some other old cardstock - Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush (PTI) that I have had FOREVER.  I added some green and periwinkle cardstock, too.  This card, although I didn't picture it will pull up to expose a window for a hidden message.  I did put some vellum on the back of the wreath.  I cut out the HI from gold foil cardstock and adhered to the vellum.

I am over the moon for this card.  We'll see you over at the TMS blog - I can't wait to see what you do with the sketch.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #517

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's by Debbie.  It's sure to become a go to sketch of yours!

My card features stamps from Gina K, sentiment stamp/die from Simon Says Stamp and an old paper pad from my stash.  This was a very hard card for me to make.  I don't like making Sympathy cards so I really struggled with this and I'm still not super happy with the results.


This paper pad has nice cheery colors of turquoise and yellow and grays.  When I was done I realized I picked mostly the grays so it made this card dreary.  But it is what it is and I hope my message to my friend who lost her father this past week will bring comfort and that she knows I am thinking about her.

Please come see us at Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  We'd love to have you join us.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #516

Hello!  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's such a fun one by Andrea.  This one can be so much:  fun and whimsical, elegant, masculine.

My card features the July Simon Says Stamp kit... again.  I can't get enough of this paper and cute little bees.


This was a really simple notecard to put together.  I made this while video chatting with my sisters.  It was just perfect for our conversation.  One sister worked on baking bread and the other colored.  It was fun.

We'll see you over at the TMS blog - be sure to stop by and say hello.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #515

Hello!   Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate your visit.  So the latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  There's a lot of layers - more than I've done lately, but I think you'll like this sketch.

My card features the Pink & Main stamp set and die set called Sunflowers...


I made 4 of these cards!  I am planning on getting them in the mail to the ladies I write to every week and I'm sending the other 2 to my sister to send to a couple of ladies that need a little sunshine in their mailbox.

I stamped the images using  VersaFine Clair ink - Pinecone.  I did use my MISTI so that when I finished the simple Copic coloring I could overstamp the images.  I was originally going to heat emboss but I decided I liked the bold outline as is.  I used a fun plaid embossing folder by JoAnn's, dies by CC Designs and MFT Stamps and lastly some sepia vellum my sister sent me so long ago, I've been hoarding it.  And then finished it off with some Dark Walnut Nuvo Drops.

Well, I hope to see you at the TMS blog.  I'd love it if you left me a "hello" in the comments, too.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #514

Hello!  I'm back.  I needed that extra week off to get settled into my house.  I still haven't found my mouse and there's a few pictures I can't find.  But for the most part I am back into a living routine.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's so simple!  This is a great one for CAS cards or going all out.

I liked this sketch a lot so I made two cards.  The first one features dies from Spellbinders, inlay idea technique and Oxide inks.


This one wasn't hard to make - it was actually really easy.  Let's work from the base up.  This is a white card base that inked up with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.  The next panel is a white panel that I die cut the base layer of the flowers and leaves die.  Then I embossed the panel with a dots embossing folder.  I then glued that to the card base and then glued in the die cut flowers.

The flowers were made from the May (I think) small die of month from Spellbinders - these are layered flowers that are so pretty!  The bottom and second layers were colored with Peacock Feathers, the 3rd layer is colored with Chipped Sapphire, the 4th layer is something Moss and the little center is Squeezed Lemonade.

The sentiment is from a little set I have from Gina K.  The dies used are rectangle and scalloped rectangle dies by Spellbinders.


So I did have a lot of fun with the first card and I knew I wanted to make another one and I knew that I wanted to play with Simon Says Stamp kit again that is July 2019 kit.  Everything I used is from the kit except the ink and Copics.  This one was another easy one to do.

I hope to see you over at the TMS blog and that you'll join us for another fun sketch challenge.
