Tuesday Morning Sketches #680

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit, it's always nice to see you.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I love this one!

I am busy designing my Christmas cards.  I usually send 3 to 4 different designs out.  I have my "special" category which will be featured later - these are my super intensive cards that I usually reserve for my family.  These are my "general" cards - meant for others, these include my card traders group and friends and extended family.  None the less special, just a little easier to mass produce.

This card features the Small DOM and the Stamp/Die of the Month Oct '22 from Spellbinders.  I wasn't sure this set would come in time for this challenge, but I am so glad it did!  I picked up a nice Christmas paper pad from Hobby Lobby since it was on sale.  I then stamped the image, colored it (quite sloppily, I might add) and then stamped it again so I could do the gold heat embossing without ruining the embossing with the Copic coloring.  This was so easy to do with my MISTI.  I die cut the sentiment from gold mirror card stock and stuck it to the layering piece.

I think this card turned out quite lovely!  I hope you like it, too!

Please head on over to the TMS blog and leave the team some love.  They work so hard week after week to inspire you.

Lovely is a perfect word for this beautiful card!! You're such an inspiration, maybe this will be my year to actually get cards out in time-which means I BETTER get started!!

If this is a general card, I can't wait to see the special cards! This is so pretty. I will have to try the stamp, color, restamp, heat embossing technique because this looks great!
