When you are feeling low - TMS #509

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Today's card is an encouraging card for someone going through a really rough time...




In case you cannot read the verse, here it is...


I know this is a time when you
are feeling so low, lost and lonely.
I'm sure you feel this
darkness will never end.
Know that I'm praying for you,
that God will lift you in Him
and bring His light to
each new day.

This was among my printed-and-waiting stash, and I cannot seem to find who it is from.  My DP is the Paper Studio Country Road.  The ric rac is My Favorite Things Stitched Ric Rac. The ovals are cut using Cross Stitched Ovals from Cheapo Dies.  I finished it off with Recollections adhesive dots. 



Challenges...

Word Art Wednesday #392-#393 - anything goes w/ uplifting sentiment
Happy Little Stampers Dies - June HLS anything goes w/ dies


Here's our sketch for the week... (I will certainly use this one over and over!)

Christmas ornaments - TMS #507

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week, I've got a Christmas card for you...


(It's hard to see in this pic, but the ornaments really
shine and are so pretty IRL!  You can get a glimpse below.)
Supplies...
~Raisin Boat "Holiday Hang Ups" clear stamp
~Versamark ink
~MS embossing powder
~the Paper Studio "Old World Winter" DP 
~Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics


Challenges...
Crimbo Crackers #186 - anything Christmas goes 
Merry Little Christmas MLCCB #10 - June anything Christmas goes
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #441 - anything Christmas goes



When I heat emboss, I put the heat gun both on top of the design and under the design to help keep the paper from warping.  I had heard that going under helps the EP melt better.  It's true!  I did these ornaments in a dark red EP first, but made a bloober, so did it again in the green.  I heated the green from underneath only.  See how much smoother the green is that the red...  It's cool!  




Here is our sketch for the week...

Sending wishes - SCC #101

June 1... wow!  It's hard to believe this year is almost half over!

It's time for Sparkle Christmas Challenge #101!   Our theme this month... include a reindeer.  Fun challenge, but I don't have a lot of reindeer images, so I was happy to find this cutie in my stash of printed digital images!  Because it's so cute, I'll send this to some of our friends with small children.


My image is pre-colored Doodle Pantry Deer Wishes.  My paper is from my scrap box. :)  I love using up what's lying around!  (I could probably use only what I have and create until I'm dead without ever buying more... but where's the fun in that! ☺)  My snowflakes are cut with a MS punch.  Probably have never seen a plaid snowflake before. ;)  Simple card, but still fun.


Challenges...
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - May anything goes Christmas
Crimbo Crackers #185 - anything goes Christmas
Cute n Crafty Christmas #14 - anything goes Christmas
Crafting By Design - get ready for Christmas


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Great is Thy Faithfulness - TMS #502

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

I'm thankful for the ability to pre-schedule posts... I'm on vacation!!! Woot! Woot!  We're on our way to FL for my daughter's college graduation, then we're spending a couple of weeks as a family riding roller coasters!  And we'll probably do some other fun stuff, too. ;) 

Anyway, here's my card...


I used Sweet n Sassy Stamps Hymn Block Clear Stamps for my sentiment. "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" is one of my favorite hymns!  I was singing it the whole time I was making my card.  It's cut out using CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  My butterflies are from a stamp and die set... Butterflies #3 from Sizzex/Hero Arts.  (I found that funny as I looked at the packaging after using them.  They are pretty old.  I don't know when the companies stopped associating with one another, but must have been awhile ago because the company that owns Sizzix in now suing Hero Arts, among others!! SMH!)  I stamped the butterflies with VersaColor Lapislazuli, Old Rose, and Laurel Leaf, clear heat embossed them, colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers, and cut them out using the coordinating dies in the set.  My BG is DCWV corrugated paper that I've had forever!  My sentiment is also stamped with Lapislazuli and clear heat embossed.  




This week we're playing with one of my sketches.  Sometimes, I sit at my computer and play around with shapes and elements to create the sketch and sometimes I look at a card I've previously made but not posted on my blog and "sketch" it, which is what I did this time.  Here's the sketch and then the card that inspired it...






The DP is Making Memories Pitter Patter.  (More paper which I've had forever!)  I cut the circles out of the paper.  My teddy bear is Doodle Pantry, I think.  Stamped my sentiment and tied some baker's twine, and it was all done.  

I was hoping to have time to make some more cards with this sketch.  I could see the circles being snowflakes for a Christmas card or flowers for just about any occasion, or even all elements stamped for a CAS one-layer card.  You could try one of these ideas and show me! :)

Embossed holly - SCC #100

Happy May!  A new month means a new Sparkles Christmas Challenge!!   This month our theme is "Let's See Some Holly."

As first glance, you may wonder where my holly is... it's in the background stamp that I heat embossed in white.  This card is sooo pretty IRL!!!


My embossed holly is "Christmas Holly Background Stamp" from JustRite.  The sentiment is a Momenta clear stamp that I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and clear heat embossed. The paper was from my scrap box, and the ribbon is from my stash. 

We're leaving in just 4 days to go to my daughter's college graduation and then taking our family vacation!  I'm so excited but very busy, so no time for chitchat today. :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!
