Tuesday Morning Sketches #633

Hello hello!!  

Thanks for being here :o) 

I got the background ready for our so nice Tuesday Morning Sketch #633 by Debbie a week early.  I knew that I wanted to use non traditional Christmas colors so I backed some SU flocked paper with CTMH Mulberry colored paper.  Next was going to be to cut out a poinsettia and it sat on my desk for a week even though I had it ready in Cricut Design Space I just wasn’t in the mood to clear off the space behind my machine (I know I’m soooo lazy sometimes!) 

Anyway, I finished it and went in to add it to TMS and Debi did a big poinsettia also and she did a way and I mean WAY better absolutely beautiful job than I!!  At first I just thought oh well I’m posting it anyway because it took me so long to get a good cut of “Christmas” because of how tiny some of the lines are.  

I don’t know if I can shorten this long story but I decided to make another card so I did one with this pretty fox stamp that was a CTMH stamp of the month a while back.  I imagined it with a messy watercolor technique but when I did it at first I didn’t think it looked intentionally messy - do you know what I mean?  Sometimes things are cool and intentionally messy and sometimes they are just a hot mess. 

So, I decided to just stamp it and keep it simple because by that time I really spent a lot of time on what should have been a super easy card.  I swapped out the first poinsettia card with the black and white card then I played with the water colored card and thought maybe if I made some abstract watercolor paper and cut the “happy” out of that it would look ok - and it did YAY so I swapped out the black and white card for what is posted on TMS.  

Story continues….I was going to put the B&W one in my card bin as it was but I couldn’t leave well enough alone.  I added some glitter and gems and now I love that one too - double YAY!  I actually think that one may now be my favorite but I was NOT going to swap out the card on TMS again. All that said I do want to share it and hope you like them all ok. I also hope you have a blast with your first try and all your subsequent tries if you make more.  

Here they are have a look and then head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and get inspired :o)

Tuesday Morning Sketches #632

 Hi you!!

Thanks so much for being here.  I’ve been reminiscing a lot this past few days.  My daughter & granddaughter’s birthday is this week and I’m a little melancholy regarding not seeing them.  

Nevertheless I did have some fun making this quick and easy cheater card for Tuesday Morning Sketches #632. No stamping - just put a few things from the CTMH Holly & Ivy paper packet together.  I really wanted to get another pack but they are all sold out.  I also added some flocked paper that was retired from SU a while back.  My very favorite part is the cute deer stickers, there is a coordinating stamp & thin cuts set that I would like to order so I will never run out of the cute little deer. 

I hope I shake off this sad feeling soon and that you have a happy week and fun time creating with this cool sketch by Melissa!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #631

 Oh boy I know I’m running really late this week.  Truth is I just forgot.  I had lots going on and the good part is that most of it was really fun.  

Our Tuesday Morning Sketch #631 is by Debbie and one that would be fun to create a lot of but it really made me wish I had a die in that banner shape.  

This was made will CTMH current products.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a NICE week!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #630


Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Here is what I made for our Tuesday Morning Sketches #630 by Andrea. At first I felt too lazy to do a shaker card even though it was perfect for that.  One thing led to another when I went shuffling through papers to decide what to do.  I cut the little scene out of CTMH Holy & Ivy paper and knew that my Diamond Dust that I’ve had for years would be perfect to make it a snowy scene.  

I still have over half of a 14 oz jar left if you want to come on over and make cards with me!!!  Wouldn’t that be nice??!!  

Also, as mentioned last week, here is the card that I made using the pink and yellow giraffe.  Sooooo what will you do with this great sketch this week?  :o)
