Tuesday Morning Sketches #758


Thanks for stopping by for  Tuesday Morning Sketches #758.  Donna’s card from last week totally inspired my card this week!  Thank you Donna!!

I’ve been wanting to focus on using left overs from cutting a 9.5 x 9.5 square (to make a 5 x 7 envelope) from a sheet of 12 x 12. I’m not 100% sure why - because I have so much paper it’s not necessarily like I have to be conservative.  It just seems like a good idea to share that idea what do you think? It does come in handy to know because I love having a matching handmade envelope with my cards.  The tear tape is just perfect because I can add that to the flap so it will be ready to peal and seal ;o)

These pretty patterned papers are from SU but I don’t remember what it is called.  I fussy cut the large flowers on the front, they are attached to a circle in the back for strength and a piece of foam for dimension.  A pack is quite a bit so I think you’ll be seeing this more in the future. 

So now it is your turn to join us for the fun at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #757

Hello and welcome to Tuesday Morning Sketches #757.  This is such a versatile sketch by Debbie.  I would have loved to make several but was just too short on time. 

I took a shortcut of using stickers instead of stamping but at least I also die cut the scallop circle and embossed the front panel after I adhered the sentiment sticker to it.  I do really love that cute typewriter sticker and I’m pretty proud of myself for using it instead of hoarding it.  

Our team did such a fabulous job I’m sure you’ll be inspired and enjoy creating with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #756

 Hello there!  Thanks so much for stopping by for Tuesday Morning Sketches #756.  This is a super fun collaboration with  the Twisted Sisters Challenge #166 - Let the Troubles Begin! 

It has to do with lost sock memorial day (unmatched socks and stuff).  I used a piece of yarn from a tattered sock that I just couldn’t bear to part with because it was a handmade wool sock that my friend actually knitted for me! I used two brands of paper some older cardstock from CTMH and patterned paper from the Through the Trees 6 x 6 pack designed by Melissa Lowry - for the Craft Consortium.  The fox I fussy cut - it was an unmatched bright white that I used Prismacolor alchohol markers to tone down the white so that it would match my Colonial White cardstock and the mushrooms on the patterned paper. 

I made this for my oldest granddaughter - she loves foxes and mushrooms so yay! This challenge runs for 2 weeks!  so you’ll have lots of time to create and play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
