Congratulations - TMS #659

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've got a couple of grad cards to share this week...

My paper is DCWV All Chalked Up and Papertrey Ink Dotty Boscotti.  My image and sentiment are Sweet n Sassy Stamps Graduation stamp and die set.  You can see below that I used an Action Wobble on the cap.  (Have not used one of those in a very loooong time!)  The staples are from my EK Success Fastenater.  Another thing I haven't used in years!  

Here's card number 2.  Just slightly different.  The DP is Graphic 45 Come Away With Me, and I used a different image from the same stamp and die set. 


Here's our awesome sketch...

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!
