Krafty Pumpkins


Hello! Got to play with another of my new Unity stamps today. When I saw their challenge on FB thought I'd give it a try. It was a bit of a challenge for me to do just a "pop" of color (I choose the color orange) but I love how it turned out.  I like the look of the image stamped on kraft and colored with my Prismacolor pencils. I'll be doing that again for sure. Well that's it for now, thanks for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think? Love reading your comments.

Fall Acorns


Hello! I had some new Unity Stamps I just had to play with. I may or may not have done a little bit of damage with that $3 sale the other week! A few larger sets that were also on sale may have also fallen into my cart. My card uses the "nuts but I love ya" set, colored with my Prismacolor pencils. I liked the Your Next Stamp Sketch so much that I used earlier this week that I just had to play along again before it ended. Been in the fall making card mood so I'm sure you'll be seeing more soon! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! List of challenges is listed below.

Meowy Christmas


Hello! I have an adorable Christmas card to share with you today, had a lot of fun coloring this one. It's a High Hopes stamp called Christmas Cats Block. I used my Copic markers and added some red stickles to the bow and bird's hat. I used the current Your Next Stamp sketch. I could have swore I had a Meowy Christmas sentiment somewhere but couldn't find it anywhere so I just went with Merry Christmas. I keep this one with the traditional Red, Green and White color theme. Might have to try to change it up some next time?! Anyway thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!

It's a Daisy Day


Hello! Time for this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I'll admit this one had me stalling for awhile, although I'm pleased with how it turned out! The papers all match nicely in real life but for some reason the picture turned the leaves a funky color? The flourish and flowers are MFT dies and the hello is from Paper Smooches. The green flower centers are a raised sticker that I found at the Dollar Tree. They come in a sheet of rainbow colors. That's it for this week but be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with. Challenges are listed below.

Gears and Cogs


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's a nice and easy one this week. It looked like a good one for a vintage style card so that's what I went with, gave me the perfect excuse to use some of the Gears & Cogs I bought off Amazon recently! I paired it with this Stampin Up motorcycle image, added some distress inks and also distressed my edges. Perfect masculine card! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by an check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.

Butterfly Bear

Hello! It's the last week of our birthday celebration month at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks theme to go along with the sketch is stamping, so a super easy one! I used another Penny Black stamp, this one is called Butterfly Bear. The bear was done with my Prisma colored pencils, the butterflies were done with my copics then covered with Stickles. In place of ribbon I used a daisy chain flower punch and added some buttons. Used some scraps of paper to make little flag banners and called it done. Thanks for stopping by an be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.

Hello

It's week 3 of the anniversary celebration month at Tuesday Morning Sketches! This week it's the sketch plus embellishments as our theme. That's an easy one! I used enamel dots for mine. I was going to also use washi tape as this would be a good sketch for that too but went with some paper scraps instead. The flower is a no name die set I bought off Amazon, used a Simon Says Stamp die cut for my sentiment. I'll admit this sketch had me at first but really like how it turned out!! Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the DT has come up with! Challenges I'm entering are listed below.

Father Christmas

 
Hello! Our Anniversary Celebration continues this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week the theme to go along with the sketch is Christmas in July. I'm not a big "Santa" person but awhile back I won some High Hopes stamps and this Father Christmas Block caught my eye. It was fun to color, I love the way the image is framed. I also picked up the kitty framed image, I'm sure you'll be seeing a card with that in the future. The prize this week fits the theme Christmas, a picture is posted below. Can't wait to see what you'll come up with this week! Be sure to stop by an see what the rest of the DT has done this week.
