TMS #348 Landscape

Welcome back Tuesday Morning Sketches fans!
Are you ready for another creative sketch?
This week's sketch is one from Debbie and it's a good one!

Our sponsor this week is Patti and she's offering the cutest stamp set to one randomly drawn winner.  This is a CTMH stamp set  called Balloon Animals. Don't these look fun?!

And now for the sketch....

I used a silhouette image from an old stamp set called Country Road from Flourishes Stamps.  Unfortunately, Flourishes is no longer in business.  I love this image!  I used black embossing powder to heat emboss the image.  I then used Distress Inks and a water brush to create a pretty water-colored sun rise.  I used washi tape for my diagonal element.  I also moved the bow element up to the corner of my image panel, so not to distract from the image.

Be sure to stop and see what the rest of the team has created this week, and leave them a little love!

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create and be sure to enter so you can be in the running for the cute Balloon Animal stamp set from CTMH!

Happy Tuesday!
I hope everyone had a very happy and blessed Eater!!
Are you ready for a fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches!?

Jessi has given us a simple sketch to work with this week, and I love it!

Melissa has some Speckled Fawn goodies to give away to one lucky participant!
She has a Speckled Fawn Embellishment pouch up for grabs!

Now here's this week's sketch...

and here's my take....

Such a great CAS sketch! I used supplies from my stash of Verve goodies to create my card.
The tag was cut using Verve's Sweet Scalloped Die.  I used black embossing powder to emboss the flowers from the Kind Words set.  I then inked up the tag using Distress Inks.  I added some gems and some twine and a little birthday greeting.  Popped up the tag with foam tape.  I also inked around the edges of the base panel with more Distress Ink.

Now it's time to check out the other cards made by the TMS Design Team!!

Jessi - won't be joining us this week, but stop by and wish her well!

Now it's your turn to play!

Thanks for stopping by!

TMS and Di's Digis!

Woohoo!! It's Tuesday Morning!
Welcome back for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!

We have a great sketch by Debbie this week.
We also have a fantastic and adorable sponsor, Di's Digi Stamps!
She has some of the cutest digi stamps and you have the chance to win a $12.00 voucher to her store!

I used this week's sketch to create another Easter card.

I used this adorable bunny digital stamp from Di's Digis.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  I stamped my sentiment on the label die then used some twine to give it a tied on look.
I decide to go with an oval shape in place of the rectangle.  The oval is more of an Easter egg shape!  I used a floral embossing folder on the oval panel then popped up my bunny image on top of that.
I am thinking about adding a little glitter to those flowers, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the wonderful cards the rest of the DT made!

Wishing everyone a very blessed and joyous Easter!! God bless!!

Happy Tuesday Morning!
Time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!!

I am so happy to welcome two new designers to the Tuesday Morning Sketches team!
A big welcome to Wanda and Patti!
Be sure to scroll to their links toward the bottom of my post and welcome them to our team!

We also have a new sponsor, here's a little info about Craftin' Desert Divas from Melissa.

We have a new sponsor this week, too.  I am so excited that Tara of Craftin' Desert Divas agreed to sponsor us!  She has an absolutely wonderful shop.  I love the images available in her store and tons of dies, too.  Wonderful place to just spend hours looking around.  When you do, be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand because you'll be drooling over all the goodies, starting with their $1.99 sequin mixes!

Now lets get to it!

So it dawned on me that Easter will be here soon and I don't have any Easter cards ready!
This sketch provided just what I needed to remedy that!  I inked up a die cut circle with some Distress Inks to create a sunrise.  The crosses were die cut from some black card stock.  I dyed some seam binding ribbon with the ink left on my craft mat from inking up the circle.  I stamped a little Easter sentiment on the round tag and popped it up with foam tape.  A little embossing, a little inking, and a little layering and wallah!

Now it's time to visit the other DT members, they have some amazing cards to share with you!

     Patti - Welcome!!
     Wanda - Welcome!!

Now it's your turn!  Have fun and be sure to link up your creation.  You may the the lucky winner of some  Craftin' Desert Divas images!

God bless!!

TMS and DRS Beach Holiday

Yay! It's time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!!

Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs and the prize is $10 voucher to use in their store!

This week's sketch was designed by our very own Jessi!

I will admit that I found this sketch a little bit challenging!  I just couldn't the my mojo to kick in!

I used the DRS image Brushed Beach Sunrise, such a fun image to watercolor!
So I really struggled with the accent elements.  I finally decided on waves and water splashes, after all it's a beach themed card.  I used my Silhouette to cut wave and splash designs.  I added a little bit of white Wink of Stella to some of the waves so that they would stand out a little more.
I also added a little bit of doodling to the outside edges of the card.

Now it's time to hop on over to the other DT blogs, they have some amazing cards to share!


I can't wait to see what you create with this sketch!
