Tuesday Morning Sketches #542

Hello thanks so much for stopping by to see Tuesday Morning Sketch #542! Goodness gracious I have fun with all our sketches but this sketch was EXTRA fun & easy.  It’s such a perfect way to use Washi that I went a little crazy.  I’m inviting some friends over to make cards so I just cut out the elements all in black and white so they can choose whatever they want from my Washi stash to make it their own.  I hope they love it :)

I can hardly wait to see what you make this week.  You definitely want to see what our design team made - superb creations!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #541

Well HI!  

Here we are already time for Tuesday Morning Sketches #541!! This was originally sketch #511 from last year it is Melissa’s pick. We are almost done with all the team picks, mine is coming up next week after which we have some fabulous new sketches!!  

Paper and inks are from CTMH and Arches Water color paper.  The doily die is Sizzix (I’m pretty sure).  As for the paint it’s just leftovers from my pallet so I really don’t know what I had on it.

First I was trying no line water coloring after stamping and the image was just too detailed for my patience level.  

So next I just used the die and free handed a few without stamping the image. I decided that I liked the ones with a little smaller roses but went ahead and used them all with different colors. I’ll definitely be trying this out more in the future.

Finally the last thing I did is outline the free handed flowers because I just thought it was missing something - what to you think was it better before or after?

Just a quick reminder that you can make great use of your layering paper by cutting some die cuts before you layer.  I’m usually pretty frugal with really special papers like this black glitter paper.

I can hardly wait to see what you create with us this week!  Have fun!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #540

Hi there and thanks so much for stopping by!

Here is what I made with this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketch #540.  It was a great sketch but I decided I didn’t love my first take and had to do another that I like a LOT better :) The sketch is so classic and fun, it is another revisited sketch from last year - I just love revisiting them :) this is LJ’s pick.  The prize this week is a really cute fun Sizzix Valentine’s stamp and die set. 

Everything I used was CTMH and all current except for the polka dot ribbon I think was from Hobby Lobby, it’s been in my stash for awhile.

I will be stopping by to see what you create real soon!!  

Have a fabulous week!

Hello there, thanks so much for stopping by!!  

This weeks Tuesday Morning Sketches #539 was ohhhh so fun!!  I wish I would have had more time to make more!!!  It was Lisa Lynn’s favorite from last year and you will enjoy choosing 3 elements to make a fabulous card.  I decided to go “all occasion” so I can use this however I want.  

I used:
CTMH paper, embossing folder, and velum butterflies
Prisma Brush Marker to color the back of the center butterfly
Hexagon punch by Fishers

The prize this week is a ribbon assortment.

Thanks so much for stopping by-I’m looking forward to seeing what you make!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #538

Here we are again ALREADY Tuesday!!  I keep thinking I will post mid-week but then I think again that I’m barely getting one post a week accomplished!!  I did have a chance to paint a little this week but no scrapbooking.  Thank goodness for Tuesday Morning Sketches to keep me creating at least one card a week!  

Here is what I made for our TMS Sketch #538.  This is Kitty’s fav for last year, it was originally #515 when it was first featured last August.  Everything I used was Close to My Heart, the paper is current and called Celebrate Today and the stamp set is this month’s Stamp of the Month.  I actually made a few cards using this set AND sent them which is really an accomplishment for me. One of my goals for this year is to send cards not just make them.

You can check out the prize this week below, it is a stamp set from Stampabilities.  Next, you can head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches to get some inspiration and create something amazing to play along!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #537

I guess I went a little crazy with our sketch #501!!  It was Debbie’s favorite from last year #501.  I loved the first card I made which is the second one below.  I was on a roll wanting to make more but then my Vagabond broke uggghhh :o( so I resorted to my punch drawer and got the idea to use this cute little envelope punch.  I thought it was more unique for a focal point so I used it for our team blog.  

I’ve had 3 important tools quit on me in the last 6 months.  My computer, my paper cutter and my Vagabond.  I became obsessed with researching cutting/embossing machines for the following 20 hours (other than eating and sleeping lol) and ended up ordering a Vagabond 2.  I LOVED my Vag and even though I think it’s kind of ugly I decided on another one because on the 2 -Sizzix has corrected the two issues that lead to my first one breaking.  I still got probably 7 years out of my old one and I used it and pushed it so much, there were times when I was having workshops that I would sometimes cut and/or emboss 50+ items in a day.

Well enough rambling on my part, I sure hope you have a chance to check out what our team made and that you get to join us this week and have as much fun as I did with this sketch!!

I’m really going to use this punch more often, I think it is so cute and I stamped different sentiments on front and back of the insert so I have a choice when it’s time to use it.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #536


I hope this new decade is treating you well already! As for me I’m still in denial that it is already January 7th!!!!  Whoa - what happened to the last two weeks??

Here is what I made for our Tuesday Morning Sketch #536.  This stamp set is from Simon Says Stamp, I did color in a version but never finished that card, these uncolored ones were so much quicker so I was able to do a couple.  

This is a fun time of year when each of our Design Team members get to pick our favorite sketch of the prior year.  This was originally #508 last June.  The prize is a $5 gift card to Sweet & Sassy stamps online.

Thanks so much for stopping by I’m excited to see what you make!

Of course I picked the boxer to color as an accent - thanks to my fur-babies :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
