Tuesday Morning Sketches #548


Here we are the last day of March - it sort of felt like March was years long instead of weeks long.  What a crazy time!!  Our Tuesday Morning Sketch #548 is by Laura Jean and the prize this week is a gift certificate to Bugaboo Stamps.

As you can see I had a LOT of fun with this sketch and I hope you do too!!  There’s so many supplies to list for all the cards so I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.  I will mention that this cute fish set is part of the CTMH Stamp of the Month for April.  It’s full of lots of little aquarium images - 37 to be exact!!! The nautical paper patterns are CTMH Seas the Day collection and the other papers, floral and plaid are from Carta Bella’s Farmhouse Market 6 x 6 paper pad.  

Have fun!! 

Sorry I couldn’t get this to turn right when uploading for some reason :o/

Tuesday Morning Sketches #547


So I hope you’re doing as well as can be and that you’re in the midst of visiting blogs and participating in challenges like Tuesday Morning Sketches #547 to take advantage of what a nice distraction and stress reliever that is!!  

My first card is made with all current CTMH items other than the flowers, they are from Paper Studio and I’ve had them at least a year.  The other cards are cheater cards that I just used fun stickers on. The patterned paper for all of the cards is from the CTMH Mix-In’s packet.

The prize this week is a $10 gift card to Hobby Lobby - you can use it online or in store. 

Wishing you lots more fun than stress and fear this week, and I am truly looking forward to seeing your fabulous creation!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #545

Whoa here I go again completely loosing track of time!!! That ever happen to you?  Naaaaa I bet not lol!

Here is what I made for the fun Tall and Skinny sketch we have this week for Tuesday Morning Sketch #545.  I really don’t think we have done a tall one like this ever or at least not in a long time!  I made my first one using:

CTMH White Daisy and Rasberry cardstock, stamp set from Spruced up card making kit, and the current Mix-Ins patterned paper + a retired stamp set for the sentiment. The bird paper is from Ms. Sparkle & Co. I also water colored the flowers in the vase free hand but the vase is from the card making kit.

Second card:  Yesterday and Today cardmaking stamp set + Mix-In’s patterned paper.  The main reason why I made the second one is I realized that I added the wrong side of the paper to my coordinating envelope so I wanted to make a card for the envelope - then I ended up liking my second one better than the first.

I can’t wait to see what you made - our team did a fabulous job also as always! Have a WONDERFUL week!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #544

Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

Both my cards for Tuesday Morning Sketches#544 are made with brand new paper just released from CTMH on March 1. I tried to be really creative with the vintage one but I just can’t pull it off as well as our DT member Debbie!!  I had fun though and that counts too right?  I also used a Tim Holtz 3D texture fade embossing folder it is quite cool.  I was a little nervous because they are so much thicker than regular embossing folders.  

I hope you have a blast with this sketch and that you have a chance to visit Tuesday Morning Sketches our team blogs (below) and some of your fellow creators!!  Have a fabulous week!

I totally cheated by just isolating different parts of this one piece of paper for the two squares and oval.
