Merry - TMS #582

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!  I have so much to be thankful for on any given day, but today I am especially thankful that my whole family is together right now!  We are in FL where our girls are in college, and they will be coming home with us this weekend and finishing the semester online from home!  I'm a happy mama!  

But enough about me, here's my card...


This was such an easy card!  I have had this 12x12 pad for several years.  The paper, the penguin sticker, the sentiment sticker, and the green piece all came from this Paper Studio Happy Hootin' Holidays Scrapbook Pad.  My snowflakes in the corner are a MS punch. I also used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and Die-Versions Stitched Circles.   

Here's our sketch...

Peace on Earth - TMS #581

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Another Christmas card this week...


This is a pretty simple slimline card.  It looked better in my mind, but oh well. I will put DP rather than Kraft if I make another like it. I didn't want the background to be too busy, but this ended up being too plain. LOL

My BG panel border is MS Diamond Star punch.  My image is CTMH "Glory to God."  It is heat embossed so has a shine IRL that's nice.  My branch is Die-Namites "Budding Branch."  You can't really see it behind the twine bow, but my button is made with Poppystamps Stitched Buttons Dies. 

(When you hold the heat gun under the paper, it embosses so smoothly!!)

Shimmery poinsettia - TMS #580

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I'm making Christmas cards every chance I get, and this is no exception.  (I've had more time this past week since we had to quarantine when my husband tested positive for Covid. He's on the mend, but had a pretty rough week!)  

When I chose this paper, I thought it was more iridescent and less purple. (I do not like purple!)  But this is actually very beautiful in real life!  My paper is Canson Effects.  The poinsettia is Darice Poinsettia.  The sentiment is Pink & Main Merry Christmas.  

In this close up and you can see the shimmer.  

I had actually made the card in this next pic first but was not happy with it. I didn't cut enough layers of the flower and though not bad IRL, it's nothing special.  I forgot to take a close up of this.  The gold paper has the same shimmer as the above paper.  


Here's our sketch...

Snowflakes - TMS #579

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  The temps have been getting below freezing here at night, so I'm ready for snow!  I've heard we don't tend to get a lot here, so I have to create some of my own. ;) 

My paper is Echo Park Christmas.  My snowflake is Darice Large Snowflake die.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat Holiday Wishes.  

Here's our fun sketch for the week...

NOEL - SCC #118

 Happy November 1st!  Only 54 days until Christmas!  If you're still making cards, come over and join us at Sparkles Christmas Challenge #118!  The theme this month is "Gold and/or Glitter." For my card, I went with the gold...


I used a black A2 card.  The gold paper is Canson Effects.  I cut a small panel of black with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and dry embossed it with Darice Crackle.  My "NOEL" is Xcut Noel Mini Die.  I added some sheer ribbon from my stash, tied it with a small bit of twine, and added the snowflake from the center of the "O."   

The gold paper has a bit of shimmer that is really pretty IRL! 


This card is so much better IRL, and it was pretty simple to make, so this might be one to "mass produce" this year since with our move and working a lot, I'm still way behind in my cards.  And... there's a very real possibility some friends just might get a purchased card this year.  :O

Please come play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!   

 Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Love you to pizzas - TMS #578

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I"ve got a fun card for you today... 


My paper is all from my scrap box.  My pizza and sentiment are Jillibean Soup stamp and die set.   

Here's our sketch... as you can see, I stretched it sideways. :)

Merry Christmas x 4 - TMS #577

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got some more Christmas cards for you.  I've actually have 4!  This sketch is so fun that I kept creating with it. :)

I was shopping on Saturday and went into Tuesday Morning.   I love to check out their craft aisle!!  That's where I found this paper.  I really didn't NEED anymore Christmas paper, but my pads are getting low, so this wasn't a total impulse buy. ;)  It is Echo Park Christmas.   This is a beautiful double sided pad!  I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics for all my panels.  The strips were cut with my trimmer. A little twine bow finished them off. 

The reason I made 4 cards was that these sentiment blocks were all on a page, so it was easy, peasy.  :) 






Which do you like best? :)

Silver snowflake Christmas - TMS #576

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Time is flying, so I'm working on Christmas cards whenever I have a chance.  Here's one with this week's sketch...

I was searching for some red paper in my scrap box and came across this card with the front already embossed.  (I think it's Sizzix Snowflakes.)  My sentiment is Pink & Main Merry Christmas die.  My snowflakes are Sweet N Sassy Stamps Small Snowflakes.  The sentiment and snowflakes are cut from a silver paper.  Very pretty IRL!!  Here's a closeup so you see the shine a bit better...


Here's our fun sketch... can't wait to see what you do for the side element! :)

Slimline birthday - TMS #575

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!

I'm joining the slimline trend today...


I don't have any slimline dies yet, but I have a trimmer, so I made a "tall" card.  

All of my paper was from my scrap box.  My flower is Hero Arts Mum Stem stamp and die.  My sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps Birthday Greetings.  I always have trouble getting sequins to stay on a card, so I just punched some tiny circles for the dot element at the bottom of our sketch...

A Christmas Hello - SCC #117

 Happy October 1st!   It's time for Sparkles Christmas Challenge #117!  Our theme this month is "Vintage Christmas."

My card is vintage in the paper and sentiment though the card itself isn't exactly vintage.  


My paper is the Paper Studio "Old World Winter."  My sentiment is Flonz Christmas Poems.  I love the vintage look to this!  I cut it and framed it using Spellbinders Petite Ovals.  I had some crinkly ribbon I had made a few years ago and made my double bow with it.  Though it doesn't look like it in the picture, it actually matches really well.    

Time is flying toward Dec 25... got all your cards made?  If not, let us help inspire you and please play along with us at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!

Have a blessed day!!
