Tuesday Morning Sketches #290

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by, I'm glad you're here.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one by Jenee.  It worked perfectly for my card.  This week's sponsor is DRS Designs Stamps.


My card features Jelly Bean Bunny - he looks like he's eaten a few too many jelly beans.  I used an egg stamp from another company to stamp tone on tone and then hand cut them.  Nice pastel palette to hopefully bring some spring time weather to my in the deep freeze friends.

See you over at TMS.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #289

Good Morning!  The newest sketch is up on Tuesday Morning Sketches and I really love this one!  It has so much possibility!  Gotta love that.  I also am thrilled that we're being sponsored by All Dressed Up.  What sweet images.

My card features a sweet image called Little Treasure.  My friend just welcomed a new grandbaby into her family, baby Camden was born a few days ago, weighing in at just little over 9 pounds!  Wow!  So I made this card to send to her and her husband to congratulate them.  No one ever sends cards to the grand-parents.


Now, if you know me, you know it absolutely killed me to put this stupid "congrats" sentiment on this card.  I HATE that word.  But I do not have a "congratulations" stamp in my collection anywhere.  That must be remedied immediately.  Can anyone suggest a really good sentiment set?

Anyway, I hope to see you join us this week.  Thank you for stopping by.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #288

Good Morning!  Thank you for stopping by my blog.  The new sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's fun, too.  I can't wait to see what you do with it!

This week's sponsor is Sweet n Sassy Stamps and my card features a stamp set that's no longer available, but still very cute!!!  Teacup Cocoa I think is the right name.


I had purchased 3 new Copics from a nice lady on Facebook who was parting with them pretty inexpensively.  They were perfect paired with this great burgundy card stock.  I added a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #287

Good Morning!  I'm back, I'm alive.  I'm still coughing but it is slowly getting better.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's the last of revisited sketches.  This week's pick was by Nina and it's one that was created by former DT member Laura Nehring.

I still wasn't feeling well enough to go all out, my card features items I had on my table already.  I also couldn't get my program open that I import digis into to print them and I just didn't have the energy to figure what the heck was wrong with that.  My apologies to our sponsor, but my team represented Stitchy Bear very well.


My card features a lattice border punch by EK Success, butterfly sticker by Martha Stewart and Valentine stamps by My Favorite Things.  The only thing that I actually pulled out of the drawer was the embossing powder and heat tool, everything else literally was sitting on my table.  I'm not going to mention how long it's been sitting there.  LOL

Please head on over to TMS and join us!  Thank you for stopping by.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #283

Good Morning!  It's time for another sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week is Jenee's pick and it's a good one.  I love this sketch, too.

This week's sponsors are Bugaboo Digital Stamps and  Jenee.  My card doesn't feature either sponsor because I have been commissioned to come up with some Valentine's Day packaging for a local catering company that is just getting started with cakes, cookies and other yummy treats.  You all have to know how hard this is for me.  Anyone who knows me knows how much I really dislike Valentine's Day so this is a challenge in itself.


Part of the packaging includes that if one orders the whole package, it will include a card.  So this is a card I created for it.  I need to come up with a non-romantic type card, too.  Anyone have any easy ideas?  I'm open.

My card is a top folding card.  I then cut a panel that I embossed with the Swiss Dots folder,  I cut an oval frame and embossed it with the basket weave folder.  The hearts were cut from a cut file from Silhouette Online store from Roasted Red Pepper card stock and decorative paper from Recollections.  I had some little heart pearls for forever from my sister so I added those.

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.

Happy Birthday with Designs on Cloud 9

Good morning!  Thank you for stopping by.  I hope your week is going well, I know I'm ready for the weekend.

Today I have a card to share with you.  I'm sort of "over" packaging at the moment, give me another week to recuperate from all that I did over Christmas.


My card features the following files from Designs on Cloud 9.

I did create a mat by copying the card base and then sizing it down until it looked good.  The I used the eraser tool to remove the bottom portion of the card and with the line tool I drew in a new cut line for the top.  This was I was able to do the embossing I had in mind.  I cut the bear out of regular card stock, he does come with cheeks but I didn't realize that's what they were until too late.  So I colored cheeks on him using the R11 Copic marker.  I cut his balloons from vellum and colored the back with Copic markers.  Then I tied black thread to the balloons and adhered to his paw.

Super easy card to celebrate a child's birthday!  I hope you enjoyed.  Have a good day.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #282

Hello!  Tuesday Morning Sketches is back!  Not that we went anywhere but the 2 week break was much needed and so very nice.

For the next several weeks, we'll be visiting the design team's favorite sketches and Debbie is kicking it off for us.  Although, this is one of my favorites, too.  My card features a sweet stamp from CC Designs and a favorite matstack, Linen Closet.


My base is Kraft which has been my favorite base lately.  I used a cut file from Silhouette Online store for the scallop mat and then I realized that I think I actually have a Spellbinders die in my dies basket!  LOL  What a ditz I am.

Anyway, join us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches to play along with us.  Thank you for stopping by.
