Tuesday Morning Sketches #582

 Hello and thank you so much for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.  I thoroughly enjoyed playing with it!

My cards... yes, I said cards!  I made two.  My cards feature the November Large Die of the Month from Spellbinders.  This die set brought back my love of stitching.  My first crafts I started doing as a pre-teen was counted cross stitch.  This isn't counted cross stitch but was fun playing with a needle and thread.

This first card I used paper from an old Christmas 12x12 pack designed by Heidi Swapp.  I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, a wonky stitched oval die from Kat Scrapiness and a sentiment stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

This card, I mean, in real life this card is a show stopper!  My sister was left speechless.  So that's a great compliment, right?  I used gold and silver metallic embroidery floss, gold and silver foil card stock and finished it off with some Nuvo drops and a gold half bead.

I took this picture so you hopefully can see all the shine and the embossing I did on that smaller silver panel.  Embossing foil card stock is so effective - it captures the detail so well!

The corner pieces I cut from the other die that's in this set - it's a border.  I'm sure you've seen these on Instagram or if you follow Jennifer McGuire closely.  

Anyway, I appreciate your visit.  I hope to see you over at the TMS blog playing along with us.  Leave the team some love.  And Happy Thanksgiving to you all in the US.  I hope your holiday week is filled with blessing and love.
