Morning Kick Start


Hello! Dusted off an oldie this morning to try an get another card in for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop before it ends. I used a Stampabilities House Mouse stamp called Morning Kick Start. I paper pieced the mug and colored it with a combo of my Copics and my Prisma colored pencils. I just can't get fur to look right with the markers or skin tones to look good with pencils but I'm happy when I use the combo of the two! Used more of my beloved Lawn Fawn plaid paper, hope they keep making it. Love how this one turned out. Thanks for stopping by your visits/comments make my day!

Scarecrow Fun


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week we are sponsored by DRS Designs. I've used the Large Scarecrow and Happy Fall Y'All Greeting on my card. When I saw this adorable scarecrow I knew I needed to use some plaid paper. Went to my favorite for that Lawn Fawn, LOVE their plaids! After finding the paper I wanted I than found copics to match and colored my image. Which is a reverse for me as I usually color a pile of images than find papers later when I make it into a card. I added some strips of burlap and called it done. Love the colors on this one a lot . 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.

Colors of Fall


Hello! Today's card uses a stamp I've had for YEARS and never used. Unfortunately I have way to many of those. It's an un mounted stamp I think I got from DRS Designs at a stamp show, although I can't find it on their website? Maybe it's retired or my memory is failing me?!! I colored it with my pencils and found this YNS sketch to use with it. Still not sure about rounded corners but figured it's time to change it up a bit and just went with it. Sorta misfigured my paper size and had to move my enamel dots off to the side. Just LOVE making fall cards, think it's the warm color tones I like so much?! Anyway that's all for now thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Pumpkin Spice

 
Hello! It's Tuesday so it's time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's a fun one this week and perfect for using those Tag dies! I'm still on my Prismacolor pencil kick and enjoying it. I used the Unity Pumpkin Spice mini set, another one that I bought the other week on their $3 sale! Still have more new stuff to ink up so hopefully in the next few weeks you see them cause a lot of them were Fall related. One of my most favorite kinds of cards to make.

Fall Greetings


Hello! Had a bit of time to play today and here is one of cards I made. It uses a DRS Designs stamp that I cut apart after coloring to make it work for the sketch. Here is a card I made a few years ago with the same stamp left the way it was made. The paper is from a DCVW 6x6 pad called The Harvest House Stack. Love the non traditional colors in this pad. I had colored my image first and was lucky to find the perfect paper to go with it. I will say this picture doesn't do this card justice.....it looks much better in person! That's all for now but be sure to check back tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch! Challenges I'm entering are listed below.

Thanks a Bushel


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I'll admit this one had me going for a bit but guess it was worth it in the end?!! I used a Beccy's Place digi for my card this week. I colored it with my Prisma Color pencils, been really enjoying using them again! I used my neglected paper crimper for my little side strip, added some twine and a wooden sentiment tag. Found some little wooden embellishments to finish it off.

Winter's Butterfly


Hello! Today I have my attempt at a all white card/challenge! I feel like it's missing something but couldn't decide what so left it be. I just used a Darice embossing folder and added 2 different large snowflake dies that I had. I covered the snowflakes with stickles and added some pearls. The sentiment is from an older Gina K set. Thanks for looking and challenges I'm entering are listed below. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch.

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.

Ladybug Ladybug


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means its time for a new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This month we are celebrating our 8th Anniversary! We are having special themes each week to go along with our sketches and prizes to match! Hope you can come join in the fun. This week the theme is Die Cuts! I went all the way die cuts with my card, even the sentiment. I LOVE playing with my dies so this was a perfect theme for me. My lady bugs are from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the sentiment is Spellbinders. I think I ended up making like 4 cards with this quick and easy layout. Just changed up the color and sentiments. A quick one to build up the card stash for sure. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.
