Masculine birthday x 2 - TMS #486

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

I've got 2 birthday cards to show you.  The first one I'm sharing is actually the second one that I made.  It's my dad's birthday card.  I made the other one first because the image was so appropriate for him, but when it was all done, I thought it just looked too juvenile.  So... I created this one...




Here's the one I'll add to my stash for a boy...

Vinyl and pillows and aprons, oh my!

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a tile that I had vinyled.   Click HERE to see it.  While I had the Cricut running, I did a couple of other projects.  I cut some vinyl for the wall just inside our side door which is our main entrance, and made a sign for my daughter.

Here's the entry...

(The paint is actually tan, not gray)



And here's the sign for my daughter... (She loves to sleep!!)


I created both of these in Make the Cut using fonts I have.  I used "Courier New" and "Panda Tired Script" for the wall and "Courier New" (bold) and "Blessing" for the sign.   I purchased the sign at AC Moore, and it will hang or stand.


I did some machine embroidery for some gifts, too.  Here are a couple of pillow covers I made for my other 2 daughters...

(Design from Oh My Crafty Supplies)


And a couple of fun aprons...

Thanks snow much - TMS #485

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches and we're back with our first challenge of 2019.  

We always start the year revisiting the team's favorite sketches of the previous year, but we'll start that next week.  

Just after Christmas, we were saddened to hear that Jessi Fogan, who was a wonderful and greatly loved former member of our DT, had passed away.  My thoughts and prayers are with her husband and boys! 

We want to remember and honor her, and so this week's sketch is one of Jessi's sketches.  

Here's my card...





Challenges...
Pattie's Creations #154 - snowy days/nights
Shopping Our Stash #385 - winter blues 
Make My Monday #87 - use words or sentiment


I need a few thank yous for Christmas gifts and had a few of this image and sentiment already printed.  When getting this image out to use, I saw another that was great and reminded me that Jessi loved to make cards with fun critters, so I made this one, as well...



Both of my images are pre-colored Doodle Pantry images.  My DP is DCWV Playful Pets.  The birthday sentiment is from Bo Bunny Sentiments Stamps. I embossed the blue plaid of the first card with CB Swiss Dots.  

Here's Jessi's sketch...

Merriest snowman wishes

While things are a little slower during the Christmas/New Year break, I'm trying to really use up a lot of the images, backgrounds, die cuts, and/or half done projects that are around my craft room.  
This card used 2 of them.  *pats self on back*

Have you seen this?  I stole it from a few friends who shared  it on FB. 




Here's my card...



I've seen many cards on Pinterest and Instagram that have an inked BG and a snowman or house or church or something sitting on a hill and loved the look.  So I copied the idea and made my own.  My snowman and sentiment are Simon Says Stamp "Build a Snowman" stamps and "Snowman Parts" dies.  I created my BG with Studio G coordinating inks and added white heat embossed snowflakes. (From the SSS set.)  My "rolling hill" is Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes.  

Challenges...
Christmas Crafts All Year Round January - let it snow
Merry Little Christmas #6 - January anything Christmas goes
Cute N' Crafty Christmas #3 - Christmas/winter
Dies R Us #112 - anything goes with die from company carried by DRU (Poppystamps)
Scrapy Land #105 - anything goes with brand SL sells (Poppystamps)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Happy New Year w/ Sparkles!

I want to wish you all a very blessed 2019!  While I am wishing you a happy new year, I have a Christmas card to share! ;)

My year is going to sparkle!  That's right, I am now a "Sparkles Christmas Buddy," and today is my first challenge as a member of the DT at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!! 

Sparkles Christmas Challenge #96 is "add some sparkle" so here is my Christmas card with sparkle!


You can see a bit of sparkle there, but check out the shine from these angles!!!




I cut my Darice poinsettia out of red cardstock, rubbed Versamark all over it, and heat embossed with Stampendous Kaleidescope embossing powder.  It is amazing!!!  {{Not my idea... I saw it done on this card... HERE.}}  My glitter plaid paper is MME and the soft green and script are scraps.  The stars are a MS border punch.  Panels are cut using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics. My sentiment is Raisin Boat Holiday Wishes stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and clear heat embossed.  


Challenges...
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #418 - anything goes Christmas
Winter Wonderland - anything Christmas goes
Simon Says Wednesday - anything goes
Dies R Us #112 - anything goes w/ dies by company carried at DRU (Darice and Spellbinders)

Annual anything goes - TMS #484

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This is our last challenge for 2018 and it's our Annual Anything Goes!   

Here's my project...




In case you can't read it...
Bless
the food before us,
the family
beside us, &
the love between us.
~Amen

You might be wondering why I did vinyl on a tile for a card sketch challenge.  Like I said, it's anything goes!  But there was a thought process for it... when I first started paper crafting, I did mostly scrapbooking.  A friend bought me the original small Cricut.  I loved it!!  I then got myself an Expression.  Still using it!  I started making a few cards, began to play in some challenges, and got hooked!  Most of my early cards have a Cricut cut or sentiment on them.  I branched out into stamping and embossing and dies, so my Cricut sits sad and alone most days.  BUT I do love to make vinyl sayings for walls, t-shirts, and tiles and that is basically all I do on my Cricut E now.  All that rambling to tell you how I came about to making a vinyled tile for this challenge... going back to my Cricut roots.  :)  

I've seen this saying many places, so I don't believe I'm plagiarizing by using it.  I used fonts I have on my computer and cut the words to fit this 12x12 ceramic tile. I love the wooden look to it!!  (I'd have flipped it if I'd noticed the dark spot where the lower words are, but it is actually not as noticeable IRL.)  

This challenge will run for 2 weeks, so you have until Sunday, Dec 30 at 8 PM EST to play along.  Then we're taking a week off and will be back up and running on Jan 8. 

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!! 

See you in the new year!!

TMS #482 - take two

After finishing my card for yesterday's challenge, I was working on more Christmas cards.  I found a stamp set that I've not inked up yet, then I had the thought to try a nativity die for the 3 elements under the main image of this week's sketch.  This is the result.  I like it!  What do you think?


My sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Nativity Sentiments.  I cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Squares and inked it with TH tea dye before removing it from the die.  My DP is the Paper Studio Old World Winter.  My ribbon is Paper Studio.  The animals and manger is Die-Versions Nativity Border trimmed down to fit what I needed.   It does look much better IRL.  I'm planning to get some daylight bulbs next trip to WM so that my pics look brighter.

Here's the sketch again...  please come over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and play along!!



Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #364-#365 - anything goes w/ uplifting sentiment
Merry Little Christmas #5 - anything goes Christmas
Make My Monday #85 - non-traditonal Christmas colours
Simon Says Stamp Monday - B is for... "baby Jesus"
Addicted-to-stamps #169 - Christmas non traditional colours


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
