Tuesday Morning Sketches #429

Hello and happy Tuesday once again :) it's time for another really fun sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches #429.  Our team is sponsoring this week, the prize is a really cute little Christmas tree stamp and die set.

I treated myself to a little extra me time so I was able to create 3 cards for this sketch.  Doing them all so close to the same really saved some time. I got a little wrapped up in it and didn't realize that I should have made the middle section thicker but I was just so  happy with my loopy punched (Martha Stewart punch) gold border that I didn't look at the sketch as often as I should have.  

I used a retired CTMH stamp and die set then colored with various alcohol markers, I have a few Shin Han, Copic and Prisma and love them all.  I wanted to stamp with Charcoal instead of black so I used my Misti tool to stamp so I could re stamp again to freshen up the lines after coloring - gotta love that Misti.  I think I needed to let the pink and blue one dry a little more before re stamping but nevertheless I'm ok with how they all turned out.

I hope you get to play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!



  1. What a trio of pretty cards you've made, and I love the variation of colors with that great punched border detail! NJ!

  2. These are gorgeous, Patti!! I love that stamp!

  3. Very pretty and always great to make a set! TFS!

  4. Oh, I like all three of your cards. That stamp works well with all three color schemes. I especially like the blue one, but I also like the other two. Very, very nicely done!

  5. What a beautiful set of cards Patti! Not sure which one is my favorite?!

  6. Fabulous set of cards! All them are just beautiful - gorgeous colors and lovely textures. Great job!
