A Little bit of pretty from Unity

Things are slowing down for me, so I took a little bit of time to create!
I used one of my new stamps from Unity to create this thank you card for a very special lady.
The image and sentiment are from the set Let Your Dreams Bloom.  I colored the image with my Inktense pencils and water brush.  I sanded the music panel where I wanted to stamp the sentiment.  This lightened the area so the sentiment showed up better, it also gave it a little bit of a distressed look to it.  Some twine and pearls are the finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog!
God bless!

Happy Tuesday morning!
There is another great sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
I had a lot of fun putting together my very first easel card!  I had never made an easel card before, so this was a great new challenge for me!  If you're intimated, don't be, you can adapt the sketch and use the oval and circle elements on a regular A2 card.

This week we are sponsored by SLS Lines.
As noted in their bio on the Etsy shop:  Welcome! I sell digital stamps and papers with a fun and quirky vibe. There are cute fairies and tons of cats too. I'm happy to make custom orders as well. You can find me on Facebook with lots of news about new and upcoming products! https://www.facebook.com/SLSlines

Here's this week's sketch.....

and my card....
I used an SVG file to cut my card base and gingham mats.  I inked the edges of the mats with some Distressed ink before adhering to the panel.  On the base panel, I also added a few stamped flowers.  I used one of the flowers from the Whimsical Flowers set from SLS Lines for the vertical panel.  I paper pieced the bloom and colored the stem with Copics. I cut out the different layers of petals and popped them up.  I also added some Wink of Stella to the petals for a bit of glimmer.  A few sequins and a little twine bow finish off the card.
I had a lot of fun making this card.  I hope you give it a try.

Take a look at what the other DT members have created....

Remember, you don't have to make an easel card.  Just adopt the elements like Jessi did!
Have fun, can't wait to see what you create.

and my card.....
I used Race Car Scottie for my cute little boy card! 
I colored the image with a combination of Prismacolor pencils and Distress markers.  I embossed the green layer with an arrow embossing folder.  I sanded the edges of the red panel and then stamped some tire tracks for a fun little detail.  I added Glossy Accents to the goggles and the car's wind shield. A little hand cross stitching and this fun little card was done.

TMS #313 with Bugaboo!

Happy Tuesday Morning!!
We are back with another sketch and one of my favorite sponsors!

Bugaboo is one of my favorite digital stamp shops!  Love all the fun images! Such a great variety, from cute to fun to a little racy!   This week's winner will win 7 images of their choice!

So now for the sketch....

and my card featuring Stella and Gus Socks and Sandles.

Sorry my picture is a little blurry.  I flipped the sketch to fit my image better.  I fell in love with this fun image!  And I really do know someone who wears socks with their sandals, I plan on giving this card to them.
I colored the image with a combination of Prismacolor pencils and Distress markers.  I did find the triangle element to this card challenging.  Not sure why, I just had a hard time finding the right size to satisfy me.

Please take some time to stop by the other DT blogs, they've got some great cards to share with you!


Be sure to link up your creation on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog by Sunday, Aug. 16th to be in the random drawing.  Who wouldn't want 7 new Bugaboo images?!

Happy Tuesday Morning!
It's time to get your craft on!
We have a fun sketch this week and an adorable sponsor.
This week, we're sponsored by Sherri Baldy Designs.  We are so thrilled to have them back to sponsor TMS and I'm sure you are, too.  Sherri's images are adorable, be sure to stop by her Etsy shop.  She has a HUGE selection. 

Now for this week's sketch....

Here is my take featuring Bestie with kitty. 

The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils. The papers are from my stash.  I added some hand stitching across the top of the banners and some faux stitching around the blue oval mat.  
I hope you have fun with this sketch!

Be sure to stop by the other DT member's blogs.  They have some awesome cards to share with you!

Welcome back TMS fans!
Sorry I was unable to post last week.  I was away on a mission trip with my daughter and her youth group.  What a great trip!

This week we have a great sketch with tons of possibilities!

This week we're sponsored by SLS Lines.  This is a fun little digi shop on Etsy offering digital stamps and papers.  It has a little something for everyone! 

Now for the sketch....

and my card.....

I used paper from my ever growning stash!  The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and then blended with a Prismacolor colorless blender alcohol marker.  I added a little sparkle to the flowers with a Wink of Stella pen.  A little butterfly die, some sequins and some thread accent the corner of the image panel.

Be sure to check out what the other DT members have created for for you this week!


Alright friends, it's your turn to play along.  And SLS Lines also has a challenge blog here.  Maybe you'll want to play along with theirs, too.

Can't wait to see your creation!  
God bless!!
