First TMS of 2016!

Welcome back and happy 2016!
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful start to the new year!
I am happy to be back with the first Tuesday Morning Sketch of 2016!
As is our tradition at TMS, we are starting the year off with the Design Teams favorite sketches of 2015!

Up first is Jessi's pick...
She picked sketch #288

Our wonderful sponsor this week is the one and only Bugaboo!!
I adore their images, fun, cute and sometimes sassy!  A random winner will receive their choice of 7 Bugaboo images!
Now for my card.

I used Bugaboo's Lion Topper to create this fun card.  I first printed the image twice, I then colored the images with Copic's, fussy cut the one complete image, and just the paws and tail from the second image.  I popped the image up in the MFT pierced circle frame.  I then popped his tail and paws up again for some fun dimension! A few die cut hearts and sequins add some cute embellishment.  I kept the sentiment neutral so it can be used for a variety of occasions.

For some more great inspiration, stop by the other DT blogs, they have some great cards to share!

  1. Fantastic card Kris, this little lion is so sweet and I love the fun bright colours.

  2. This is so cute!! I love his tail hanging out!

  3. Kris - this is genius! When you picked this image, I thought maybe you were going to use a different shape, but no.... and this looks FANTASTIC!

  4. Oh my goodness! Could this card be any cuter? That would be a NO! The image here made me smile and you did a masterful job of bringing our little lion to life through your coloring. It's full of great layers, too, and I like how you made him really peeking through that circle! Looks amazing and I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!


Thank you for your comments, they warm my heart!
