2-for-1 MERRY Christmas - SCC #131

 It's December and Christmas is only 24 days away!!  But today is the start of our December challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges!  This month our theme is "non-traditional colours."  

I am a very red/green for Christmas kind of girl, but I do like to see the non-traditional, too.  Here's my card...


This panel had been stamped and white heat embossed with trees from MFT Oh Christmas Trees.  I cut out "Merry" and put a silver piece of paper behind.  The "Christmas" is from a "Happy Christmas" die that came free with an order several years ago.  

Then I took the cut out letters and made a second card.  It seemed a bit bare, so I added a few adhesive dots...

Please come over and play along with us at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and share your favorite non-traditional colored card! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Happy birthday scrubs - TMS #634

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I probably need to be making more Christmas cards, but I needed a birthday card for my son.  My "baby" is now 20!!  He's taking an LPN course, so I used a stamp I bought when he began to consider nursing...

 My DP is Pebbles Birthday Wishes.  My image is Stampendous Scrub Top and colored with Spectrum Noir TB2 and TB4.  The sentiment is the sentiment portion of MFT Die-namics Happy Birthday Balloon Trio.  My adhesive dots were light gray, so I colored them with TB2.  Rather than adding my shape on the main panel, I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 8.  

Here's our sketch...

Floral thank you - TMS #633

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Life is getting busy so I'll make this quick. ;) 


I cut my BG panel with Kat Scrappines Wonky Stitched Rectangles.  My flowers are Peony Memories from The Ton Stamps.  I got this sentiment a long time ago and lost the pkg so don't know where it's from.  Simple but nice. :) 

Here's our sketch...

A Dickens' Christmas - TMS #632

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

This was pretty easy to put together.  My paper is Graphic 45 A Christmas Carol.  This was the 8 x 8 pack.  I cut the sentiment with Spellbinders Classic Squares.  I thought it needed a little something and added the adhesive dots.  The color is a drab red and looks rather dull, but it really looks good IRL.  

Here's the sketch...

Glory to the Newborn King - TMS #630

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


I just found my I'm-gonna-make-several-like-this card for this year. :)  My carolers are Die-versions Sweet Petite Carolers.  My paper is Graphic 45 Christmas Carol.  My sentiment is Neat & Tangled Joyful Sentiments.  Pretty basic except that I cut a few layers of the carolers to give some dimension.

Here's our sketch...

Merry Christmas from all of us - SCC #130

 It is November 1st!!  We can now say, "Christmas is NEXT MONTH!!"  :) 

Plus it's time for Sparkles Christmas Challenge!  This month our theme is "Christmas Presents," so I created one for you...


I created this present.  (See below for a link to what inspired me.)  I cut a rectangle, trimmed the bottom and top for this shape.  My "ribbon" is narrow strips, ovals, and fishtail banners.  The ovals are half adhered to the top of the gift, and I hid the fact that they are not real loops with the branches, ornaments, and tag.  I put craft foam behind the gift and tag for some dimension. 

My DP is the Paper Studio Old World Winter, and the sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps Christmas Tags.  The greenery is a MS punch, and the ornaments are from Cheapo Dies Christmas Ornaments.  

I hadn't been sure what to do for this card until I came across this blog post with a free vintage printable....  Click HERE to see it.  And I like the printable, too, and will probably use it sometime soon. :)

Please come play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!

Getting a tree... - TMS #629

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Christmas is 2 months from yesterday!!  In a month, I'll be putting up my tree and decorating my house.  (I'd do it now if I could. LOL)  Most of my life, we've had an artificial tree, so it's only been a few times that I've gone to "get a tree," but I get excited for complete strangers when I see a tree on their car or truck.  Then I go home and open my box. :D 

My image is a Stampendous rubber stamp called "Tie Down the Tree."  It's colored with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut out with CorttageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  My paper is PaperTrey Ink Monthly Moments: December (2014, I think).  My sentiment is from Raisin Boat Formal Phrases, stamped with Onyx Black Versafine and heat embossed.

Here's our sketch... I stretched it sideways. ;)

Warmest Wishes - TMS #628

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  And I've got another Christmas card...


I used a couple of pieces of paper from my scrap box, an old snowflake punch, SSS Build a Snowman stamp and die set, distress inks (Not sure why the shading around the snowman looks so purple! LOL), CottageCutz Double Stitched Ovals, and Poppystamps Landscapes die.

Faith, Hope, Fight, Love - TMS #627

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  And this is October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I chose that theme for my card...


I'd been wanting to use this die and when I saw this week's sketch, I knew it would be perfect to feature it.   This is Die-versions Whispers Awareness Square.  I did cut several layers of the pink and put a black layer on the bottom to give some dimension since popping up a die with narrow cuts is always a challenge.  My paper is Colorbok Love.  

Here's the sketch...  (You can see by my use of this die that the elements/shapes are always open to interpretation.  We just need to be able to recognize the sketch.)

Sorry I'm late - TMS #626

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

I thought I had prepared my post, but I just realized -- 14 1/2 hours late -- that it wasn't up.  So here it is...


A piece of already embossed paper was in my scrap box as was the piece behind the sentiment.  My flowers are TH Small Tattered Flowers.  The sentiment is from a set of unbranded words that I got many, many years ago. 

Here's our fun sketch...

Christmas Blessings - SSC #129

 It's time for Sparkles Christmas Challenge!  Our theme this month is "flora and/or fauna."  That's a general term  for all plants and animals, so that leaves lots of options for you to play along this month! 

I went with both...


My image and sentiment are Sweet n Sassy Stamps Christmas Joy and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  The DP is half used piece that was in my scrap pile.  I added the Concord & 9th Beautiful Branches for some dimension.

Time is flying!  Please come play along and get your Christmas cards ready! :)

Love you to pieces - TMS #624

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got a fun card to show you, and I can guarantee that you'll be seeing this stamp set more...


My paper is Bo Bunny Early Bird.  My image and sentiment are from The Project Bin Spencer's Set.  I used my trimmer for the DP and Die-versions Stitched Circles to cut out the sentiment.  I used my Wink of Stella pen on the heart, so it has a bit of shimmer though it just looks wet in the pic.  

Here's our wonderful sketch...

baby - TMS #622

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


I recently got some stamps from The Project Bin and thought this sketch was perfect to try out one of them.  My paper is AC My Baby, and the sentiment is from The Project Bin "Defined."  ((All of their stamps are on sale right now!))  I used a small punch and layered several circles to give the corner element some dimension.  Easy peasy!

A full stocking - SCC #128

It's September!!!  Fall is on it's way, then.... Christmas!!  We celebrate (by that I mean work on our cards) all year at Sparkles Christmas Challenge, so we're ready when Christmas comes! :)  

This month's theme is "Stockings"!  And here's my card...


This is a Doodle Pantry (a long closed digi store) image.  I can see that I need to replace some of my markers.  They are not blending well at all, but if you squint, it looks all good.  LOL

My paper is Echo Park Christmas.  My panels are cut with Kat Scrapiness Wavy Wonky Stitched Rectangles.  My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Build A Snowman. 

Please come play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!!

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches! I'm been making lots of sympathy cards lately, but this one is a happy card! :)

I embossed my background with Darice Crackle.  My flower is Technique Tuesday Cosmos.  My paper was from my scrap box, and the green twine was from my stash.  My sentiment is Papertrey Ink Wedding Mini Stamp Set and cut out with Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banners. 

Here is our sketch...

Wishing you comfort - TMS #618

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I hope it doesn't make you sad to see the many sympathy cards I'm making.  These are tough, but I always want them to be an encouragement to the recipient. I've sent several and am trying to create some to have a few on hand.  


A very simply patterned paper from Heidi Grace Daydream, a sentiment from Justrite Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments, and layered stamped flowers from The Ton Peony Memories.  

Here's our sketch that can be kept CAS or embellished plenty...

You're awesome - TMS #617

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

Here's my card for this week's sketch challenge...


This was fun to make!  Because of the bright paper, I let my card base be the background.  My DP is Colorbok Light Bright.  My sentiment from Jillibean Pizza was in my "extras" box along with the TH Small Tattered Flowers.  I added an adhesive dot to the center.  All my circles are cut with Die-versions Stitched Circles. 

Here's the fun sketch...

In sympathy - TMS #616

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Here's my card for this week. Unfortunately, I've needed too many of this kind of card recently. 


My paper is Heidi Grace Daydream.  My sentiment is from Raisin Boat Stunning Silhouettes. I actually used 3 brads on this.  I don't often use brads, but I still have lots so probably should.

Here's our sketch...

I miss you - TMS #615

 Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I'm last minute getting this card made, so no time for chit chat. ;)


My flowers and butterflies are Sizzix/Hero Arts Butterflies #3.  They are colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat You Said It!  I also used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  (I use that set pretty much on every card!)  I inked the edges with Hero Arts Navy.

A blossoming day - TMS #614

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


This week, we've got such a versatile sketch!!   It can be CAS or fancy.  Mine is more on the CAS side.  I started with a black card base.  My image (and sentiment) are from MHKDesigns and are colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I cut the sentiment with Spellbinders Petite Ovals, framed it, adhered it to the flower panel and cut them with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  

Here's the sketch...

Dad - the man, the myth, the legend - TMS #613

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

I had a plan for this card, but when I got to my craft table, another thought came to me, so I tried it, and this is the result.  I am not a mixed media or watercolor person, nor do I try a lot of special techniques, but when I saw my square TH distress "stormy sky" ink pad, I wondered if I could make the squares of the sketch with it.  I just stamped the whole pad on my card base.  It worked.  So then I needed another.  I used my Hero Arts Navy cube.  It's tiny, so I had to make the square.  I like the non-perfection of it all.   My sentiment is The Project Bin Classic Man.  I like this because the inside could say happy birthday, happy father's day, or any other congratulatory message.  The sentiment and frame are cut using Spellbinders Standard Squares. 

If I try my other idea, I'll be sure to share it, too.  :)

Here's our sketch...
