Father's Day blessings - TMS #658

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I'm actually ahead with my Father's Day cards this year, and here is one of them...


My car is The Project Bin "Classic Man."  I stamped the cars with Versafine Claire Nocturne, clear heat embossed them, then fussy cut them.  My sentiment is Our Daily Bread "Father's Day."  My paper is Papertrey Ink "3 Piece Suit."   I swiped a black stamp pad on the sentiment strip to tone down the white a bit. 

Here's the sketch...  (I can promise you, I'll be using this one again and again!)

A card + news - C4G #173

Hello!  I've got a card to show you for a challenge... a challenge that I've played along with a few times, but where I am now a Design Team Member!  I'm happy to be joining the team at Cardz 4 Galz!!!  

For this current challenge, our theme is "sentiment as the focal point."  And as the name suggests, the card must be for a gal.  I'm sharing my sister's funny birthday card.... at least I think it's funny! 

I used actual Scrabble tiles.  The "Don't worry..." was computer generated and cut out using Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banners.  My DP is the Paper Studio Country Road.   

I made it an easel card.  The inside sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps Birthday Greetings and cut with the same set of fishtail banner dies. 

I hope you come play along and make a card for a gal in your life!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Come unto me - TMS #657

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I hope my card this week is an encouragement to you!  2020 may be long over, but I know the struggles of life are still ongoing!  I pray you know the Lord and can take your burdens to Him!  

 

My BG paper is Papertrey Ink Dotty Biscotti.  The Kraft ovals are cut out using CottageCutz Double Stitched Ovals.  My verse is a free digi from Word Art Wednesday from long ago that was in my printed-and-ready-to-use folder. It's cut out using the half-cut technique since I didn't have a rectangle with these dimensions.  

Here's the sketch...

Thanks - TMS #655

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Here's my card...


The navy polka dot paper is from my scrap box.  It's cut out with Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles.  The squares are Jen Hadfield Warm & Cozy DP.  The large sentiment is Cuttlebug With Gratitude die.  I cut several layers and glues them together to give it some stability and dimension.  Then I inked it with VersaMark and clear heat embossed it.  I did this a couple of weeks ago but remembered to take a close up this time... 


Here's our sketch...

Christmas greetings tree - SCC #136

 Even as the weather is getting warmer, we are still thinking of Christmas!  It's time for Sparkles Christmas Challenge #136 and our theme is "Christmas Sentiments."

Here's my card that showcases the sentiment...


My sentiment is CottageCutz Holiday Greetings Tree (I cut 2 and glued them together for some dimension.  It really helps it stand out IRL.)  This is Recollections silver paper.  It has a nice shimmer and is very pretty IRL!  The BG paper is Graphic 45 A Christmas Carol that's cut with Kat Scrapiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles which I cut 2 sizes but kept them together for a bit of interest.  (I've used these a lot lately.  I guess I tend to get in a creative rut. LOL)   I also used Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes (But... then I realized that I used the non stitched piece! Duh!)

We'd love to have you come play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

I'm praying for you - TMS #654

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week, we've got a pretty basic sketch and here's my card...

My image is Spring Blossom from Sami Stamps.  It is a digi stamp that was printed on vellum and "embossed." I have not done this is a long time.  You can check out some instructions HERE.  I cut a panel of Heidi Grace Daydream with Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles then cut a circle in it to frame the image.  *Doing it this way meant I could adhere the vellum and the glue doesn't show!  My sentiment is Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts.

Here's the sketch...

Hello - TMS #653

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I seldom say this or feel this way, but I'm very happy with my card for this challenge.  

I had a few paper pads on my desk, flipped through Crate Paper "Bloom" and immediately knew I wanted to use these papers.  My sentiment is a word die from a set I bought years ago from a craft sale site.  I cut it out 4 times and glued them all together then swiped it with VersaMark and heat embossed it with Ranger Extra Thick embossing powder.  That gave it shine and more stability.  (Oops! I made this while wearing my glasses that need the prescription updated, so I didn't notice until I had adhered it to the circle that I missed a spot or two.)  The circle the sentiment is on is cut out with Die-versions Stitched Circles.  I added 3 adhesive dots to finish it off. 


Here's the awesome sketch for the week...

Butterfly birthday - TMS #652

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week I'm sharing my cousin's birthday card.  She is fighting a difficult and courageous battle with MS and has the sweetest spirit through it all!   She loves flowers and birds, so I hope she likes my butterfly, too. 


My paper is Bo Bunny Early Bird.  My sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Stamos Birthday Greetings.  The butterfly die is from a Uchi Design motion card set.  (Still haven't figured out to make the motion cards work!) The border is a MS punch. 

Here's our sketch... I can't wait to see how everyone interprets the elements of this sketch!
