Tuesday Morning Sketches #375

Hi! Thank you for stopping by, I'm so glad you're here.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a really easy one.  Debbie is sponsoring and it's a beautiful stamp set by Graphic 45.

My card features a poinsettia I cut from the Silhouette Online store.  I like this one, it's a little different....

I think my card is a little busy.  I shouldn't have added the patterned paper as the base.  I like it on the flower.  This was an easy card to make and would be an easy one to mass produce.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #374

Hi!  I hope you're doing well.  Thank you for stopping in - I am so glad you're here because I have such a fun card to share with you today.  I am so excited it turned out really well!  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I got super creative with it.  Our sponsor this week is Jenee and she's offering a great prize so be sure to head on over to TMS to check it out!

My card features embossing, punches, dies and glitter.

Isn't this lovely?!  I hope you like it as much as I do.  I picture this door being at the front of a lovely townhome.  I used for my base a brick embossing folder by Darice.  My door is made from this beautiful red card stock I picked up at JoAnn's when it was on sale a month ago.  The bottom layer measures about 2 1/2 inches wide and I barely touched the edges with a bit of Barn Door Distress Ink.  For the 2nd layer I deepened the red a bit with more Barn Door Distress Ink and then the top layer I, again, barely inked the edges.  This gave it the depth I was looking for.  The wreath I made from circle dies and a holly leaf punch that I have had for forever and a day.  Then I decorated it with Candy Cane red Stickles and a bow by Mama Element (die).

The card measures 5 x 7 so I had to emboss 2 pieces of card stock to make the brick panel.  There was a slight seam but that was easily covered with gold glitter "garland" which is an old die from MFT Stamps.

I created the door frame with strips of white card stock that I embossed lines into using my Scor-Pal.

Finally the inside of the card has my sentiment - a die from Pink & Main using some Heidi Swapp glitter paper.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #373

Good Morning! Thank you so much for stopping by.  I am so glad that you're here.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies.  My card is featuring a very sweet image called Playing in the Pumpkin Patch.

I had a lot of fun creating this card.  I didn't work in foil like I was originally thinking, but I do love how this card turned out.

I colored the image with my PrismaColor colored pencils and gamsol.  I'd forgotten how much I love the look of blended pencils.  I am using some great fall colors, a burnt orange for the base and some pretty colors that I picked up when card stock was on sale at JoAnn's.  The leaves are from a die set by MFT Stamps.

You simply have to go visit the TMS blog and see the design team's creations.  They are Ahhh-maze-ing!  Wow!   I know I have the best team around and they really outdid themselves this week.

Have a fantastic day!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #372

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at TMS and it's another great go to sketch by Debbie.  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

I decided to keep my card pretty clean and simple.  I also tried to do some embossing using some great dies from MFT Stamps, but for the life of me I couldn't get the sandwich right to emboss correctly. So it's very subtle.  I apologize for the lighting, too.  I couldn't get that right either, it started getting gloomy outside.

I'm using some Kraft cardstock for my base that came in the Fall Hero Arts kit.  I didn't like it, it's more a light layering weight than a base weight.  I also used some beautiful copper card stock that came in the kit as well and I do love this!  The image is Fall Fence by Bugaboo.  I did some simple coloring with Copics.  I think it's a cute, pretty much a single layer card that will be great for a notecard.
