Tuesday Morning Sketches #350

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday.  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I think it's a lot of fun.  Open to lots of embellishing or keeping it clean and simple.

Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo and I am featuring one of my favorite images, Hanging Birdhouses.

So I am a huge fan of Jennifer McGuire and Julie Ebersole - I mean, who isn't?  They are amazing designers and I learn a lot from them.  I've been watching videos... well, I watch videos every night.  I love them!  They are my night ritual.... jammies, plump my pillows, grab my Kindle and log onto You Tube.  Anyway, Jennifer McGuire has created a few videos for in-laid dies.  I don't have a lot of dies - shapes mostly, to do such a technique, so I played around with my Silhouette in an attempt do do the same.  When I perfect this method, I'll share how I did it.  Or who knows, maybe there's a You Tube video I've not seen yet.  Also, she die cuts sentiments from fun foam, so I got this stamp/die set from Hero Arts and used the die to cut the sentiment.  I love the dimension!

Well, so that's my card... I hope you like it.  Be sure to stop by the TMS blog to play along and please visit my design team.  They really deserve your love.

Wonderful card! I love how the die is positioned behind the branch so it looks like the branch is extending past the image panel! I love Jennifer McGuire's video's also!

Fun foam? I would never have thought to cut that with my Sizzix Big Kick! This way we would't need any more Thickers. Lovely card!

LOL Melissa, I do the SAME thing many evenings!! I love watching those two and Kristina Werner and others too. I love the way you extended the branch with your die cut and I'm grateful for the remainder about the fun foam - how inspiring!!
