Tuesday Morning Sketches #590

Hello fellow crafty friend.  Time for another fun sketch - Tuesday Morning Sketches #590!  The last sketch for month number 1 of year 2021!! It is Margreet’s favorite revisited from last year.  I could have probably made a huge quantity of these if I had more time but I didn’t so here are my two creations. 

One is a Valentine for one of my kids or grandkids and the other is a thinking of you for a dear friend who lost her mother recently.  I’m really trying to use more of my cards instead of just create and accumulate.  

I used Close to My Heart:

    Ink:  Candy Apple & Blue Belle

    Paper Packs:  Sweet Safari, Happiness Lives Here & Perfect Match

    Die: Stitched Hearts & Party Banners Thin Cuts

    Stamps: Air Mail (available) & retired Say it in Style

    Embellishments: Happiness Lives Here Wood Shapes &

                                Blue Belle Pearls

Embossing Folder:  Yikes I suddenly can’t find it I will clean and                             post when I do. It was NOT CTMH though. 

Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you check out what our amazing team and other participants create at Tuesday Morning Sketches and leave some love we will be visiting your entry and leaving you som love too!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #589

Here we are already week 3 of 2021!! I hope your doing well and finding time for a little fun.  I sure appreciate you stopping by!

Here is what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #589.  I love making slim cards but I obviously need a little more practice!  I feel like I did much better the first time around with this one.  It was actually perfect timing because as I was going to through a basket of old cards and envelopes I found this pack of cute card bases with the shaped flap that I thought would be perfect for this sketch.  I don’t even remember having them!!!  At all!!! Am I loosing my mind??

I used the January and February Stamp of the Month sets from Close to My Heart and the so so cute Happiness Lives Here paper pack.  I kept telling myself sometimes less is more but I couldn’t quite adding fun backgrounds and boarders form the Feb SOM and the hearts etc. from the January. The foam shapes I used are what comes in the center of the shaker foam/window sets. 

The other challenge when it comes to this shape is photographing them but they are very much worth the fun!  Enjoy!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #588

 Hi thanks so much for stopping by!

Here’s what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #588 we’ll still be revisiting sketches for a few weeks.  This sketch is by Melissa and it is Debbie’s choice.  I used all new Close to My Heart products - I love the shaker dies it makes them so easy.  I filled them with some of the heart confetti from the dies and some glass beads and sprinkles from Martha Stewart that I’ve had around a long time. 

I wish you a week with lots of positivity!  Plus, of course time to play and have fun - looking forward to seeing what you make.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #587

 Wow- well it’s here 2021 is here, it still sounds funny to me though.  I know you most likely are like me in having gratitude for some of 2020 but it’s easily over shadowed by the barrage of challenges it posed.  I don’t really know anyone who is sad that it is over but nevertheless I always try to see good in whatever whenever I possibly can.

Speaking of good—this is the fun part of the year when our Tuesday Morning Sketches design team all pick a favorite sketch to revisit from the year prior!!  We’re starting off with Andrea’s favorite, I took a completely different approach to it last time.  I enjoyed it just as much this time around.  I was even able to make 4 cards, I kept thinking of different littles that I could send them to for birthday’s and miss you’s Plus these papers and stamp set were a joy to create with.  I have shimmer on the wings and shoes that is so hard to see but tried to capture it close up.

Last week we had a huge turnout because we had the annual anything goes and a big ol’ prize but I hope we have a good turn out again...it’s all about the fun right!!  So time to head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches to check out what our team made and enjoy creating your own fab art!!!
