Good Luck


Hello!! Finally made it back to the stamp room again. I've been enjoying the break, haven't even been online much at all. Sorry if I'm behind on visiting your blog. When I was feeling like I needed to be crafty I went looking for a sketch (my go to for some MOJO!) and found this Stella Says Sketch one. Loved it so had to play! Not sure I like my choice of the ladybug paper but?? Other than that it works! Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy the long holiday weekend. Hoping to get inspired to make a few more cards this weekend?!

Kindness


Hello! Today I have some news to share with you before I get into this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch/Challenge. This will be my last post as Design Team member. I have decided after 18th months it's time to step down from the Tuesday Morning Sketches . I've had a great time and want to thank Melissa and all the girls for having me it was blast! I'll still be around playing in some challenges here and there I'm sure.

Ok onto the challenge. This week we are changing things up! Instead of a sketch we are having a Blank Canvas Challenge. I have posted a picture of the challenge below. You can find out all the little details over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches page.

To create my background.....I used 3 different TH Distress inks, an acrylic stamping block, water misting bottle on watercolor paper. Than I stamped my Inkadinkado  boat image and embossed it in white. Love how the white spots (around my sentiment) on my water coloring background kinda look like clouds. Added a gold base under my watercolor panel and some gold metal accents to finish it off. Really pleased with the end result! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see all again soon. Be sure to check out the rest od the teams creations.

Clean and Simple


Hello! It's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's a CAS one this week. I've had these old K & CO 3D stickers laying around for awhile and thought this was the perfect sketch to use one. Added the sentiment and a few pearl type embellishments and called it done. Quick and Easy! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the team has come up with.

Watercolor Posey


Hello! It's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week it's one of my sketches and I can't wait to see what you'll do with it! I used a Beccy's Place freebie on my card and it's colored  with my Kuretake watercolor markers. I added some stickles to the flower centers and used a distressing tool on my outer circle. The pleated ribbon is from Stampin Up. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week. List of challenges is below.

One in a Melon


Hello and Happy Spring?!!? Right? Even though it feels more like winter lately and they say we have more snow on the way on Saturday with as much as 6inches possible in places?! Anyway I'm in the mood for WARM weather and so I went for a summer card today! And nothing screams summer like a cold slice of watermelon!! I have had this adorable Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps digi printed out for ages....ok years actually and finally got around to coloring him with my Copic markers. Went hunting for a sketch to use and over at Sketch Saturday it was players choice to go thru their past sketches! How fun is that? Anyway I hope my card brought a smile to your face and warm thoughts to your day! :-) Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of your day! Challenges are listed below.

Puppy Dog Eyes


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I recently picked up this older used SU set called For Father, perfect for those masculine cards! This particular image was done with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I used some jute ribbon and brads for my first band/strip. The second one is some card stock scraps. I was happy with the end results! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.

Birthday Wishes


Hello! It's once again new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It just so happens to be one of my sketches again this week but this one has lots of layers!! My favorite! ;-) I used Papertrey Button Bits stamp set for my card. I really need to use this set more cause I do have a TON of buttons to use up! I softly sponged around my die cut to give the appearance of the balloons being in the sky. It's a fun and festive card and I love how it turned out! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with. Challenges are listed below.

Easter Cupcake


Hello! Tonight I have a quick post to share this cute Easter card I made using the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch. I was making the card from memory.....I was a bit off on a few things but think it's close enough to pass??! I Love this Stampendous Bunny Cupcake and think it makes for the cutest Easter cards. I colored it with my Copics, added some stickles to the cheeks & ears and finished it off with some Glossy Accent on his nose. That's it for now but be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch.

5th Avenue Floral


Hello! It's new sketch time over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week it's one of my sketches, a pretty simple and easy one. Hope you can come play along. The flowers are from a SU set called 5th Avenue Floral. I colored them with my Copics, hand cut them and finished them off with some pearls. The leaves are from a Spellbinder die, the sentiment is from a Verve set. I added extra texture with the help of 2 of my favorite embossing folders CB Swiss Dots and SU Square Lattice. Happy with this one! Thanks so much for stopping by ans be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.
