Tuesday Morning Sketches #599

Hi there HAPPY Tuesday!!  Welcome to Sketch #599 for Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I just returned from a little trip for a few days visiting with my daughter and her 2 children.  So tired that I feel like I could nod off mid sentence lol so I’ll make this pretty quick.  

I was so excited to use my new CTMH 12 x 12 stencils and try them out for card making — so versatile to have the large size!  I made my card for the sketch in colors to match these cute avocado clay mask packets I found - I love matching the card colors or theme with a little gifty item.  I’m also in need of a lot of TY’s so I made additional cards while I had the other supplies out. The ink I sponged is all CTMH - Avocado, Almond, Toffee.  I also used card stock in those three colors and this great Thanks die cut - all CTMH.

I had a lot of fun making this and I’m sure you will have a ton of fun with this sketch too!!  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Don’t forget you can make use of the center of your piece of background card stock.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #597

WOW!!!  Tuesday again already!!  It’s so true about how the older you get the quicker time flies!!  Here is what I made for  Tuesday Morning Sketch # 597.  It is completely different from what I thought I was going to do but I really like it.  I enjoyed this more than most the masculine cards I make - I really need to challenge myself to make more. 

The paper is from the new CTMH Daisy Meadows pack.  It is very Easter/Spring themed so I’m extra pleased that I pulled off a masculine card without using paper that was formally masculine per se.  The plaid has some pink lines in it but I used a gray Shinhan marker over the pink, it’s a bit translucent so it turned out a neat color that is almost a perfect match for the light side of CTMH Espresso card-stock.

I wanted to cover the pink because the brother I made this for is the type who would totally say something about it!! LOL - yes one of those guys!!

I pretty much followed the sketch to a T- even up to the use of little punched stars.   I’m looking forward to seeing what papers & elements you put together making this GREAT sketch by Andrea!  Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #596

 Happy Tuesday once again!!  Thanks so much for stopping by whatever day it is!!

I knew I would love the top element of this cute Tuesday Morning Sketches #596.  My first instinct was to go pastels and feminine but I decided to get out of my box and do some bold fun colors.  

I think the die cut I used is Spellbinders or maybe WeRMemory Keepers either way I’ve had it for quite a number of years it is one of the first ones I purchased.  Since it is a circle I made two cards to use up both halves.  The paper is the newly released CTMH Eat Play Love paper packet and also the new Mix-Ins paper packet.  The ribbon and twine have been in my stash a long time too. 

I decided not to add a sentiment and keep that for whenever I decide to use it and say whatever I need when that time comes. This was so so fun I wanted to make more - had lots more ideas but I’m also trying to get in routine of scrapbooking again also so I’m cutting myself off at two - lol!!

I can hardly wait to see what you make!! Please visit Tuesday Morning Sketches and our wonderful design team and of course - enjoy!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #595

 Happy Tuesday - thanks so much for being here!!  I could barely eek out any crafting time this week but I was so happy with the time I did have.  

I was only able to get this one card finished, I have another one started but couldn’t quite pull it off.  But this fun Tuesday Morning Sketches #595 would have been one that I could have accomplished a lot more with just a little time.  It’s such a flexible design.  I’ve been really wanting to play with my Distress Oxide inks and that mission was accomplished.  I used Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed they go perfect with CTMH Canary & Tangerine card-stock and ink. 

I’m in love with this month’s CTMH Stamp of the Month, Winged Masterpiece.  I mean really you will be seeing more of it this month for sure!  VIP members can get it for free with a $50 purchase and anyone can purchase it for $5 with a $50 purchase. 

Our team has some very inspiring work for you to see also so without further ado here is my card and I hope you enjoy visiting our design team blogs.  You can click on TMSlink here and from there you can visit the team and our fabulous participants.  Have a NICE day!!
