Little Gal / TMS 338

Welcome back for another fun Tuesday Morning Sketch!!
We have a brand new sketch and a brand new DT member!!
Please welcome Lee to the TMS team!!

Jenee is our sponsor for this week's prize, and it's a good one!!
Three Spellbinders embossing folders and three new stamps sets!  Awesome!!

And here is our first brand new sketch for 2016!!

So many different ways you can use the floral row element, and it doesn't even need to include flowers!!
Here's my take....

I needed a baby shower card this weekend and I needed it quick! This sketch was just what I needed to create a quick CAS card!  I used a set from Unity Stamps called Tiny Little Gal.
Stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, then fussy cut out and popped up with foam tape.  Some cute heart ribbon and little heart gems complete my card.

Now be sure to visit the other designer's blogs, and see all the different ways to use the floral row element on this fun sketch.

Now it's your turn, can't wait to see your take on the floral element!

With Love / TMS 337

Hello TMS fans!  Welcome back for another fun Tuesday Morning Sketch!
Before we get to the sketch, I would like to share an announcement from Melissa.

I have a special announcement to make as well.  We're looking to add a couple more members to the TMS design team.  We'll be adding one very nice, very talented lady next week but I'd like to add two more.  If you're interested in being a part of our team, please follow these steps to apply.

1) You must play along with all 4 sketch challenges the month of February.
2)  You may include other challenges in your card(s) but not another sketch challenge.
3) Each of your blog posts must link back to TMS.
4) When you link your card each week, your name and "DT1" (or DT2, DT3, DT4 depending on which week it is) needs to be the link up name, not the name of your card or blog post.  (i.e., Feb 2:  Melissa DT1, Feb 9: Melissa DT2, etc.)
5) I'm not going to ask you to tell us why you want to be on the team, but if you want to, we'd love to hear it.

Alright everyone!  Have fun.

Now for this week's sketch and prize.
It's my turn to pick my favorite sketch from 2015 and I am also sponsoring the prize!

Prize - Grab bag of stamps (20+)
 plus a package of heart doilies and some heart lace ribbon.

and the sketch....

and my card....
I used Technique Tuesday's Poppies stamp from their Greenhouse Society collection.  I stamped the image in Versafine then water-colored the image with Kuretake Gansai Tambi water-colors.
I stamped a simple Love You sentiment so this card can be used for a variety of reasons.  I added a few Clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh, just for fun!  
Thanks so much for dropping by!  Be sure to visit the other DT blogs, they have some wonderful inspiration ready for you!

Remember to add DT to your name when entering if you would like to join the TMS Design Team!!

Happy Tuesday Morning!
I hope you've had a wonderful week and are ready for another Tuesday Morning sketch!
This week we have Debbie's favorite sketch pick.  This is also one of my favorites too, it can be simple or more elaborate, the choice is yours!

Debbie is also sponsoring our prize this week.

And here's the prize she's offering.  Hampton Art "Let It Snow" stamp & die set.  Debbie also decided to spice things up a big, but it's completely optional, let's make this a Winter theme challenge.  I know some of you are probably sick of the snow, but it's cute on a card!

And now for the sketch....

and my card...

I decided to make a simple birthday card since my supply of birthday cards has dwindled.  The sentiment was embossed using Versamark and gold embossing powder.  I cut the balloons with my Silhouette, then added a little Distress ink and some white gel pen to create a highlight.  Some black embroidery floss makes wonderful balloon strings! A few homemade enamel dots finish off my quick and easy birthday card!

Now be sure to stop and leave the other designers some love, they have some great cards to share!

Now it's your turn to show us your creation!
Thanks for stopping by!
God bless!!

Wild thing!

It's been one of those weeks!
I meant to play along all week with the Bugaboo Birthday Bash Challenges and here it is Friday and I've only got one card done!
So here is my one card for week one of the Bugaboo Birthday Bash.

Made a Valentine with this cute little Lion Topper image from Bugaboo!  I printed it twice, colored it with Copics then fussy cut out.  I cut the paws on the second image and used foam tape to pop them up. I added some faux stitching around the heart die cut.  A few sequins, music notes and glitter heart accent the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
God bless!!

Happy Birthday with CAS(e) this Sketch!

Had a little fun in the craft room creating this fun little scene and this week's sketch from CAS(e) this Sketch #155!

When I first saw this sketch, I immediately thought of a little road scene, and this MFT road die that I have had for some time, yet I've never played with it!

I had fun putting together this little scene!  The vehicle stamps I have had forever!  They are from a time before CTMH!  It was a DOT's set.  DOT stamps were what got me hooked on stamping!  I colored the vehicles with Copics.  Added a little Glossy Accents to the windows and popped them p with foam tape.  Some little gear sequins from Verve add a fun accent to the sentiment banner.

Okay, so it may not be too clean and simple, but I think it's cute!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
God bless!!

TMS 335 Birthday card

Welcome back for another fun sketch with Tuesday Morning Sketches!
This week we have Melissa's favorite sketch from 2015.

We also have a fantastic sponsor and a wonderful prize!
We are joined this week by a new sponsor.  Jennifer Tomasic Sinsley, Close to My Heart Independent Demonstrator.  She is offering Assorted Edges (D size stamp set).
Woot!Woot! Who wouldn't want this fantastic stamp set!

Now for the sketch - 
and here's my card....

Over the last few week's I have been converting all my old wood mount stamps to cling.  This really helps with the storage space!   These are some of my converted stamps.  The stamps I used for this card are some of the oldest in my collection.  Years ago Close to my Heart was known as D.O.T.S.  This was the start of my addiction!
I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored them with Copics.  I added a little bit of black thread to he balloon.  I coated the thread with Tombow Aqua Mono Liquid Glue.  This allowed me to shape the string and adhere it to the card.    

Thanks for stopping by!  Please visit the other DT blogs for more wonderful inspiration! 

Now it's your turn to play!  Can't wait to see what you create!

TMS 334 Happy Day

Good Tuesday Morning!
Welcome back for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch!

We are starting the new year off with some old sketches!
The DT have each picked a favorite sketch from 2015, this week we have Jenee's pick.

Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet - home of digital stamps and papers by a variety of artists that are sure to spark every creative taste.

So here is your sketch to play with this week,..

and here is my card featuring Stitchy Bear's Golf Bag image.

I left the image uncolored, which really made for a quick masculine card!  I used an old Stampin Up Hodgepodge Hardware to frame my sentiment.  This simple sentiment can be used for a variety of occasions.  I inked up around the edges of my panels to lend a little bit of an aged look to my card.

Be sure to stop by the other DT blogs, they have some great inspiration ready for you!

Now it's our turn!  I can't wait to see what you create!
God Bless!
