Not gonna lie, this is a perfect sketch for scraps! Especially if they vary in color! This is easy to mass produce and takes no time at all.
So my friend gifted me that Annie’s Attic card kit that I highlighted a card from yesterday, remember? Well here’s another one. For this one, I used my own sentiment and a couple of crystal dots but everything else came from the kit! I love how it co-ordinates!
Now the Design Team has amazing projects for you this week, as always right! Head on over to the blog to play along and also to leave them some love. I challenge you to use just some little scraps from your craft table left over from a previous project, or if you are like me, you have a box with some paper scraps in it. Pick out some paper and build your card around that! I can’t wait to see what you do with this sketch!
This is a great sketch for mass producing cards and it really appeals to my love of layers!
Now I totally built this card just using some items already on my desk. The DP was sent to me with a card that I got recently. Just two double sided sheets which worked perfect for this. I also had some scraps of black for the mats. The sentiment I had just bought online and cracked it open for this card, and I really like it. I think that’s gonna be on a lot of upcoming cards. The stamp set, another item on my desk is from Stampin Up. I was searching through some piles of die cuts and I thought this was a perfect size for that square. Finally to top it off, some confetti that was loose from another project.
All in all, I think it took maybe less than 10 mins to make this card. So with a great sketch to start off with and like 5 or less supplies….voila…a nice card to send to a friend!
So now that you’ve seen what I’ve done with the sketch, head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with for you to be inspired by!
Hiya! I hope you have been playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches. We have another favorite for you. We are working with Melissa’s favorite this go round. This was one of my fave’s for the year as well.
So back in October when we introduced this challenge, this was my card.
Here’s my new one!
I pulled out my case with all my Valentine’s papers and embellishments and so I will be doing a lot with them this month. For this one, I am using a lot of pieces and papers from the Love Me Do collection from My Mind’s Eye…..go back to 2009! That’s how long it’s been sitting in my stash! Quite a different color palette from the first time I played with this sketch right! There’s a little bit of heart washi in there too.
I hope you like it, come along and play with us and as an added bonus, try and find something that you have had in your stash for quite a while and breathe some new life into it ok! Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you on the blog!
This looks like the Carta Bella collection from yesterday, but I don’t think it all is. Some may be though. I love the gold accents in this one with the sentiment and heart from my stash. I also love the vellum leaves that I added in there. A dainty little card. I hope you like it.
C’mon over to the MTCC blog and play along with us. The rest of the DT have some great projects for you to check out too!
I was playing with the left over bits from a sampler that had been sitting on my desk. I think that this is Carta Bella Floral Market. I love this collection! It’s so pretty. I’m not sure if my big floral is part of the collection but it was in the same bag and so I fussy cut them out to make a focal point for this one. I just added some confetti from Studio Katia and enamel dots and big bold dots to finish it off.
I hope you enjoy the card and be sure to stop by the TMS blog for the great inspiration that the Design Team has come up with for this sketch! Be sure to play along!
Sorry it’s been awhile everyone. I’ve been so busy getting situated in my new job and then I took another part time job so not a whole lot of free time at the moment. I hope to settle into a routine soon and then squeeze in my crafting time on a regular basis!
Ok, so. New challenge at Use Your Stuff….theme is die cuts! I’d be hard pressed to find someone that doesn’t have one or two die cuts of something in your stash…could be an image, a shape, a word sentiment ….
Now I was at a crop last month and I did a make and take with these gorgeous 3D die cuts! I’m using a autumn one but I did end up buying some Christmas ones to use on future projects. They are from Hearty Crafts and I just love them!
So the background is just some watercoloring with inks and then the sentiment is from my stash as well as the Nuevo Drops. That 3D die cut is fabulous isn’t it!
Now the DT has some great projects on the blog for you to check out and we want you to play along with us too! Show us what die cuts you have hanging around your desk right now and make something from it!
I decided to go with a different orientation for my card than the sketch! I’ve been playing with some new dies that I’ve had sitting on my desk for awhile. I believe the FRIEND is from one of my SCT samplers. The butterfly one I got recently and honestly, I thought it cut the butterflies out openly but I’m kinda glad it doesn’t. This gives you the option of leaving them closed or adjusting the wings a little bit.
The paper is just a plaid from Lawn Fawn and then the little iridescent confetti is Studio Katia. I decided to use some ribbon from my desk instead of the banner for the middle to anchor my sentiment. I’m loving this black embossed background and then these soft subtle colors.
Ok, now it’s your turn. Head over to the blog, play along with our challenge and be sure to check out the projects from the DT.
Hello all! It’s Tuesday Tuesday. Skip on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and you will find this week’s awesome sketch to play along with!
A great, fun sketch and easy to play along with.
Still playing with my October 2019 SCT sampler, I used papers from the Pebbles This is Family Collection. I also used the puffy sentiment sticker that came in my sample and I added some gold enamel dots from my collection. The flowers I’m sure you recognize from earlier cards. I had a lot of these flowers printed off and they make great focal points for cards!
Be sure to stop by our blog and see the rest of the great cards from the design team using this week’s sketch and I hope you will play along with us too!
Ready for day 3 of my Spring Card Class? We were doing some gel press techniques. I have to be honest. I’ve had a gel press for about 6 years ( a gift in my goodie bag from a crop I attended) and this is the first time I’ve used it. I have no idea why I never used it before as it really is a lot of fun and it’s so unique!
We paired the gel press with some embossing as well, again something that I don’t do near enough (although it did make me realize I don’t have any clear embossing powder in my stash….say what???? )
I needed some birthday cards to send out, so I focused on that sentiment but really mixed and matched here.
The left card is using some Gina K stamps and sentiment (you’ve seen this set before from another online class I did last year), with a Plaid Crafts stencil to add an extra layer of texture to the gel pressed panel.
On the right we have some gel press and watercoloring and it is paired with a stamp and die set from SCT delivered online (this is part of an online card class from the spring that I haven’t finished yet so stay tuned for another card with this set). This one I brayed the watercolored ink and then added the panel onto the gel press. It gave me some lighter and darker parts, which I think adds some great interest to this card. I did some gold embossing and I love the gold on this!
Our flat card, which was actually my first gel press panel, I cut out the flowers using a CTMH stamp and die set (again from a previous online card class) which had been heat embossed with some gold embossing powder.
The inks were from Your Next Stamp for this one. I went with some pink/purple/teal combo, which is a little out of my wheelhouse but I love it with the gold embossing!
Get out your gel press and have some fun with it! There is no right or wrong way ( I even left a little ink on mine for the next batch).
