Endless possibilities - TMS #475


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week's sketch is so fun... with endless possibilities!  You can change up the decorative element in many different ways... I actually made 5 cards with 3 different elements... paisley, snowflakes, and flowers! :)  
Here's the first one...



I created and cut these paisleys using Make-the-Cut and my Cricut.  The sentiment is Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sentiments 6.  My paper is from my scrap box.  A few sequins finished if off.  

Another paisley card... using Stampin Up Paisley Framelits. 




Snowflakes, anyone?


Sweet n Sassy snowflakes and Pink and Main sentiment die 

Sorry for the reflection of my red sweater!! :D 

That silver card is my favorite, so I'm entering it into a few challenges...

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas #407 - anything goes or twist (I did AG)
52 Christmas Card Throwdown Oct Colour challenge - silver
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #486 - Christmas
Sweet Stampin' Christmas Oct - anything goes
The Holly and the Ivy #38 - anything Christmas goes


And finally, flowers...


Prima flowers and Heidi Swapp clear sentiment


So while it features paisley, you can see the possibilities are endless with this sketch...

Fall thank you


It's finally feeling like fall!  Yay for sweaters and boots and caramel corn! :)
This year our leaves are a little slower turning than usual, but it looks like we are going to have a beautiful year!



I've had both this image and sentiment sitting on my table for awhile, and since I'm trying to use up all the piles of images, die cuts, and scraps, I searched for challenge inspiration and finally put this one on a card...

The colors don't clash IRL, I promise! :/

My image is a colored digi from Fred, She Said.  It's cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  It's on a panel of DCWV corrugated paper.  "Thank You" is Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sentiments 6.


Challenges...
If You Give A Crafter A Cookie #104 - photo inspiration
Creative Knockouts #266 - lots of layers
4 Crafty Chicks #423 - something old is new (the corrugated paper is OLD!!)
Aud Sentiments #213 - use 2-word sentiment

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!!

It Is Well - TMS #471


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



For this card, I stamped the verse from Sweet n Sassy Hymn Blocks on watercolor paper with Versamark and heat  embossed with white.  I then sponged on TH  stormy sky distress ink.  I was trying for a more mottled look, but this is what I ended up with.  The DP is the Paper Studio the Linen Door.  My die cut is Darice Swirl Scroll die.

Hello! - TMS #470


9/11 -- Today is the 17th anniversary of that horrific day.  May we never forget the lives lost nor the need to continue to stand for freedom!  {{If you are ever in NYC, please take time to visit the 9/11 Memorial!!}}





~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Here's my card for this week's challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!   



My flowers are a colored image from Doodle Pantry that's been sitting on my table awhile.  It's cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Circles.  My DP is the Paper Studio the Linen Door.  The "hello" is from an unbranded set of several words that I got from some deal of the day place awhile back.  The dark panel was cut with an unbranded rectangle set then the end cut with the same circle to fit the sketch.  


Here's our sketch for the week...

Joy to the World


It's been such a busy summer that it's been awhile since I've posted anything other than my design team commitment, but I had some extra time in my craft room, so I decided to make a Christmas card.  I searched for some challenges for inspiration and came up with this...

Masculine birthday - TMS #469


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got a bright and fun masculine birthday card for you today.  Masculine cards are always a challenge for me.  I feel like they turn out either too dark and dull or too feminine. *shrug* I suppose this could be given to a lady, but it definitely seems masculine enough for a man.  




The truck is a colored digi from Fred, She Said.  My DP is the Paper Studio Linen Door.  The scribbled circle is Impression Obsession Scribble Circles die.  The almost hidden border is a MS punch.  My sentiment is a TH cling stamp.  The red adhesive dots are the Paper Studio.  I'm happy with how this turned out.  For once, my pic is decent, but this looks even better IRL. :)  


Challenges...
Love to Scrap #113 - anything goes
Love to Craft #26 - Sept anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Sept - must use patterned paper
Always Happy Birthday Sept - always happy birthday 


That card above was actually the second card I made... after making the one below, I decided to try again because I wasn't happy with the die I'd used for the squiggly element (see sketch below) plus I missed an element!  Also, it came out looking so dark in the pic. :/




This one was quick and easy.  I used a verse printed and waiting, scrap paper, and a bit of ribbon from my scrap box.  The cross stitch rectangles and little flower are from Cheapo Dies. 



So here's the sketch...




And our prize this week is a pack of green, blue and red glitter brush pens by Arto....

Baby congrats - TMS #468


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Here's my card for this week...  {{Sorry my post is a couple of hours late!!!}} 



I made this because I was going through my dies and realized I had never used this adorable little cow and that it would be perfect for this sketch!  Isn't she cute??!??   The die is an unbranded one from Cheapo Dies.  It's framed with Spellbinders Petite Ovals.  The clear sentiment is Pebbles "Baby."  It's cut with a fishtail from Spellbinders Lacey Pennants.  My paper is AC "My Baby."  A button and twine from my stash finished it off.

Here's our sketch for the week...



Challenges...
Fab 'n' Funky #405 - babies
Cardz 4 Galz #78 - dies and/or punches
Fussy and Fancy #219 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #348 - #349 - anything goes w/ uplifting sentiment
