Tuesday Morning Sketches #371

Good Morning!  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one!  Our sponsor this week is our very own Patti and she's offering a fun day for a prize.  Head on over to the blog for details.

My card features the September Fall Kit by Hero Arts.  This was such a good deal I just couldn't pass it up.  Fall is my favorite time of year and I really miss the colors of season - I say that every year.


This kit came with stamps,dies, inks and embellishments.  It also came with a few pieces of card stock, the orange is also featured, and I used the ribbon that bound the whole kit together.

I absolutely love the sentiment stamps - that handwritten brush stroke is beautiful.

Thank you for stopping by and we'll see you at the TMS blog.

My card features papers from the Heidi Swapp and I brought in some additional dies by Fun Stampers Journey.

And I even decorated the inside!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #369

Good Morning!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this is a really fun one by Debbie.  It's another one of those sketches that will go in your go-to folder.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments and my card is featuring an adorable image called Fifi Cupcake.  This was fun for a Fall birthday card.


My card is a Natural White base (Neenah) and the sentiment is from a chocolate brown card stock and a pretty plaid orange card stock.  I used a die and sentiment from Pink & Main.  This is a very clean and simple card and I think is a great card to give to anyone on your list.

Please head on over to the TMS blog and check out the DT designs - they did a phenomenal job like always!  Have a great Monday.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #368

Good morning!  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this week we're sponsored by DRS Designs Stamps.  I'm excited that I got to use some of my favorite stamps by DRS Designs.  My card today features Medium Daisy and Three Butterflies.


I know this isn't really meant to be a Gerbera daisy, but hey, layer two of them together and why not turn one lovely bloom into another lovely bloom.  Gerbera daisies are most favorite in the daisy family.  I love the colors I used - not so hot about the markers themselves though.  I used Spectrum Noir markers and they are messy!  I felt I had no control.  But I made lemonade and the overall result I am pleased with.

I stamped the butterflies twice, colored them with my Copic markers and then fussy cut them out.  My card also features paper by Colorbok.

Please be sure to check out the other team member's designs. They are sure to inspire.  Now head on over to the TMS blog.  I'll see you there!

My first card features the image Autumn Delight by Miss Daisy Stamps and digital papers Just Autumn Collection by We Are 3© Digital Paper.


This card was a challenge to make - but I certainly had a lot of fun!  This digital set is a real value!  The set comes with this cute scarecrow sitting on a fence with pumpkins and greenery.  It's lovely.  It comes in 3 formats (.jpeg, .png and .tiff) and there's a bonus set where most of these images are separated and no fence.  I also imported the scarecrow image into my photo editing software so that I can crop out that tiny bird and use him as another element.  I just printed him separate, drew a line to make his belly and then fussy cut him out.  Then I cut a bale of hay using my Cameo.  I made it a little too small, but no problem, I just cut it in half and then glued to either side of the scarecrow. 

I hope to see you over at TMS - this will be a super fun challenge.  It's a great sketch for all this little punches you may have, too!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #366

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one is by Debbie.  I had a lot of creating my card with this sketch.  I have to say that my card idea started to be one thing but then turned out to be something different.

This week's sponsor is Digital Delights by Looby Lou and I'm featuring Flower Power Sunflower.  I love this particular line of digis that Wendy has created and sunflowers just happen to be one of my favorite flowers in the world.


My background is a piece of burlap paper.  I cut the sunflower border from an svg from Silhouette Online store.  I finally unpacked my Cameo!  I colored the image with Copics.  The "hello" is a die from Hero Arts and rest of sentiment is a stamp from Pink & Main.  I didn't use the hello die that came in that stamp set because it was just a bit too big.

Please be sure to stop by the TMS blog to play along and visit my fellow teammates - they work so hard to create beautiful things to share with you!

Have a great day!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #365

Good Morning! Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and we have a fabulous sponsor, too.  Lacy Sunshine is joining us!

Unfortunately, there are still some things that haven't found a functional place in my new home yet.  One of those is my printer.  So making lemonade, I decided to pull out a stamp set that I won a couple of years ago that I hadn't even inked it up once and it's absolutely gorgeous.  This a stamp set that is probably not around anymore, but it's by CTMH called Sweet Life.


My background is a stencil I got off of Blitsy awhile back.  I brushed on some coloring using a stencil brush.  I the love softness that brings.  I then continued to brush on some color using Wild Honey, Spiced Marmelade and Mustard Seed Distress Inks.  I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored my images by sponging on the colors above, with the addition of Peeled Paint.  I layered my background and focal images on a piece of card stock by Paper Trey Ink (Summer Sunrise).  I also used Whip Cream card stock by MFT.  This is the first time I've ever used their card stock - I like it.  It's heavy but smooth.

It felt really good to make a card, my mojo got packed in the boxes and it's been pretty card to get it unpacked.  I'm glad I finally did!
