Tuesday Morning Sketches #560

Hello!  Thank you so much for stopping.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.  A few layers only so it's really easy to work with.

I have two cards to share with you.  The first one features Spellbinders Small DOMs from May and June.  It's hard to see the borders to the sides of the white panel.  They are cut from gold foil card stock and it's super hard to photograph.  I love love LOVE these flowers from the June kit.  Poppies are one of my top 5 favorite flowers and that's what these flowers remind me of.  The sentiment stamp is from Raisin Boat (retired) and I cut it out using Avery Elle Sentiment Strips die.  I also the stitched rectangle die from Pink & Main.

This second card I couldn't resist making.  Spellbinders was having a Summer Sale that I had to get in on.  So this card features the Layered Flowers and Essential Glimmer Rectangles glimmer plates.  The sentiment is also a glimmer plate.  I used Moon Dust and Opal foils.  Moo Dust is the blue on the flowers and Opal is on the leaves.  I also embossed the white panel using an embossing folder from Fun Stampers Journey, Cozy Knit, I believe.

Here you'll see a close up of the flowers and leaves.  Look at that shine!  I'm getting better with foiling.  I am also so super excited that I successfully did some creative foiling.  The Essential Glimmer Rectangles are like layered dies.  So of course what I used isn't this skinny.  I foiled top, bottom and side of the thin white panel.  Then carefully lined of the other and slipped in a thin piece of foil.

I finished off my card with 2 different colors of Nuvo Drops.  This card is so pretty and I am so pleased!

Well I thank you for your visit and I hope to see you over at the TMS blog.  The team created some beautiful cards!   See you there.
