Tuesday Morning Sketches #594

 Happy Tuesday - thanks for being here!!  

I guess I went a little bonkers with this sketch ;o) reason being is because a couple weeks ago I said I was going to try and start making a big effort to stamp with every stamp out of stamp sets - the first one being A Whole Latte Love.  Well - I did it, admittedly so I haven’t made the scrapbook page that I’m going to make yet with some of the images but I did stamp them all and have already used the majority of the stamps.  That’s why I made so many cards for this cute sketch #594 for Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It is really fun sketch by our fearless leader Melissa.  

I included a pic of how I masked the coffee cup to add Doodled Borders stamps for a cute design.

I wanted also to finally use paper from a little known paper packet by CTMH - it is called a bright stack there are two different stacks available.  You get 48 sheets scaled down to 6 x 6 of a bunch of favorites.  I know not everyone realizes the patterns are scaled smaller than in the 12 x 12 kits they are not just 6 x 6 sheets of the same paper.

Have fun creating this with us!!!  See you soon!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #593

Oh my - late, but hopefully better that than never.  I’m not sure why but I decided to make this using circles cut out of a piece of paper that I put strips of Washi tape on.  It was fun!  This sketch is the last of our 2020 revisits and it was created by our very missed LJ.  

Running behind this week on so much so without further ado - I hope you can join us this week and that wherever you are you’re safe and warm!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches # 592

Hi - Happy Tuesday!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  This week’s Tuesday Morning Sketch #592 is another re-visit from last year.  It is the sketch that I picked as my fav but really I couldn’t pick a favorite on my own I just choose one that was really popular with our participants because I love them all.

I was having sooo much fun with this sketch and my new little Whole Latte Love stamp & thin cuts set.  I cut out about 4 of everything.  My goal is to start using every stamp in a set so I knew I would need a few cards to do that. So far I used 5 out of the 13 stamps so I have a ways to go to meet my goal!  I also used the CTMH stamp of the month Doodled Borders set to decorate the cup.  Everything I used is current CTMH stuff except the Swiss dots embossing folder and the brown tiny ric-rac I’ve had both of those for a very long time.  

I got it all done and took a photo so excited because I was so happy with it and then I realized that I forgot the three little dots-so in a rush and wanting to use more stamps I tried stamping the little heart curly q stamp and with all the embellishments I didn’t stamp it so well.  

So then I thought I’m just going to make more and pick the one I like the best - I only got one more done and again I was happy with it but then I realized I forgot the three little lines that go across —holy cow focus Patti Rowe!!!!  A cool part about these two cards is that I cut the scalloped rectangle out of the embossed panel in the right spot so I could use the panel in the reverse for the second card.  

Oh but so much fun to be had and so little time - these two are all that I managed to complete for this week. Now it is your turn-can’t wait to see what  you create - have fun!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #591

 You’ve gotta be kidding me - FEBRUARY??? Oh my!! It is so very true that the older you get the faster time flies! 

Here’s another funtabulous sketch repeat for Tuesday Morning Sketches # 591  This one is Melissa’s pick it was originally #543.  If you would like to see all the first round you can click here.

I think my card for this week was better in theory than it is in reality  but in real life it’s a little better than it photographed.  I kept it simple by just stamping the vine from CTMH’s Happiness Lives here card making kit and adding little already made flowers from The Paper Studio.  I made my up coming cards out of order so I made this in a rush.  Not sure quite why I rushed so much though.  

I hope you’re not sick of my little banner die I’ve had it a while but most recently just started using it and love it so much.  

Just one card this week—I hope you have some fun crafty time this week and I can hardly wait to see what you make!
