Pumpkin Peeker


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches! This week we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. I have used the adorable Black Cat Pumpkin Peeker for my card. This week we have a multi layered sketch for you! Not sure I picked the right DP for this sketch as the little squares really hides most of it? But overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I colored it with my copics and added Glossy Accents to the Cat's nose, leaves and the little heart. Added a little gingham bow at the top and a little acorn embellishment at the bottom. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by an see what the rest of the DT has come up with. List of challenges is listed below.

Textures of Fall

 
Hello Fall nice to see you! It's finally feeling like fall here in South Central PA. Summer didn't want to leave, not that I minded a whole lot except it was so humid! Running the AC in October is very unusual for us. Now we have our first frost warning for the AM. Anyway unto my card. I just had to make another card with this adorable scarecrow from DRS Designs. This time I cut him out and added some burlap. I just LOVE the colors on this one! Used the plaid paper for my inspiration. That's it for today! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Challenges are listed below.

Christmas Bauble


Hello! Today's card uses the Alcohol Ink Baubles tutorial from over at Splitcoaststampers. This was a bit messy but a lot of fun! At first I didn't think I'd be able to do it because believe it or not I have no alcohol ink pads/reinkers?! Than I realized that I could use my Copic marker refills. I need to get some more glossy card stock and play around with other color combos! I used my Taylored Expressions Snowfall embossing folder for my background. The snowflake die cut is from Poppystamps. I didn't have any ornament dies so I turned this stitched tag die into one. A little larger than I'd like but it works. If this wasn't so messy to mass produce I'd consider this for my personal Christmas cards this year?!! Maybe if I find a smaller ornament die I like I'll change my mind! Anyway that's it for now, thanks so much for stopping by. Challenges are listed below.

Autumn Blessings


Hello! Today I have pretty CAS card to share with you! I embossed a piece of Coredinations card stock with a pumpkin folder and lightly sanded over it for the lighter core color to show thru. Added some ribbon and a die cut sentiment and called it done! Quick and Easy which doesn't happen often for me! ;-) List of challenges are listed below. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Spooky


Hello! Today I have a CAS (Clean and Simple) card to share with you! I found this pack of googly eyes in different sizes and colors at one of the dollar stores? Thinking it was Dollar General but not positive? If not there it was the Dollar Tree, anyway I thought it would make some fun cards for Halloween?! Or possibly some monster birthday cards in the future? I embossed the background and randomly placed the eyes. Added and sentiment and called it done. Quick and Easy! Thanks for stopping by I enjoy reading your comments!

Embossed Poinsettias


Hello! I decided it's time to get working on some Christmas cards! I recently picked up this Taylored Expressions embossing folder at my local stamp store and have been itching to play with it. Thought this weeks CAS(E) sketch would do well showcasing it?! Although as always I probably added a layer to many for CAS? I used a gold embossed poinsettia from the Gina K year of flowers set and added some gold nailheads. The sentiment is  Paper Smooches die. The challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

An Apple a Day


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches! I'll admit I was leery when I first saw this sketch. Took me awhile to come up with a plan but I have to say that I'm very happy with the end results! The stamps are PTI and the die cut is from a Peachy Cheap set/deal that I got recently. The embossed background is an old SU favorite of mine called Square Lattice, LOVE this folder. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has created.
