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!

2 Old Bats: September

Welcome everyone to this month’s new challenge for 2 Old Bats Halloween Challenge. Can you believe we are in September already!

As always, our challenge is anything goes and each month we give you an inspiration piece to get you started.

Here’s what I created for you

I was really inspired by those skeleton heads! I was actually going to go black and white and then I decided to add a little gold in there just because. The image is from a Tim Holtz halloween collection that I have and I went over it with some distress ink. The paper is from recollections. I die cut a piece of gold foil paper and then did a bit of gold embossing for my sentiment. I really like how this turned out.

Be sure to stop by the blog and see the great creations that the rest of the DT has done and be sure to play along with us with your own Halloween inspired project!

Hellllloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Thanks for stopping by today! I’m off for a couple of days and it’s been raining here, so I’m definitely doing a bunch of scrapping! I really need some crafty time!

Without further adieu here is this week’s sketch up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog! This is a super easy sketch to work with and you can really do a lot with it. I really enjoyed this one, and I was able to do a card in literally no time at all. It’s just some fun layers and then you can embellish however you want really.

I knew I wanted to use this big flower from my die cut bowl! I thought it would fit perfectly for this sketch! The DP is from ProvoCraft and it’s just a bunch of backgrounds in a variety of colors which I thought was perfect.

The sentiment was sent to me by a friend and so it was in my cup with the others (having a cup or bowl with a bunch of pre-made sentiments is perfect for when you have to quickly make a card). I recently won some Nevo gemstones from Scrapshotz so I decided to use them on this, since they were in gold and worked perfectly with my gold sentiment. I really like how this card turned out.

I hope you will stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created and to play along with us as well!

And The Winner is….

Hey everyone!  It’s soon to be Oscar time. Did you know that the late Shirley Temple Black names the statue?  She said it looked like her uncle Oscar 🙂

Our challenge for you this week at Red Carpet Studio is to incorporate the theme of the Academy Awards into your project….is it the color gold, or perhaps a trophy that you won?  Is one of your favorite stars this year’s nominee.  So many possibilities.    Our DT has created some great projects for you this week so make sure you check out the blog.

As for me, I was inspired by the color gold.  I don’t use it a lot on my projects but I do love gold glitter paper!  It is so fun and just adds some pop to my projects.  I decided to create an anniversary card for a friend.

005

Since it is going to be mailed, I wanted to keep it simple.  As well, I am working on my CAS cards so this fit perfectly.  I used just some basic cardstock colors and an anniversary stamp that I’ve had for awhile.  It’s definitely my go to stamp for anniversary cards.  Just a block of gold glitter paper to set it off.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us this week.

An Autumn Thank you -UIT Challenge #41

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It was Thanksgiving over here in Canada on Monday so it was a busy weekend for my family as I had 2 dinners to attend as well as my youngest brother’s wedding on Saturday.  This whole weekend seems like a big party! LOL

For many of us, autumn is well and truly here.  So, we have a great challenge for you at Use it Tuesday this week.  We are falling into fall and would love to see your Fall Creations!  It can be anything that fall inspires you with, the rich colors, the celebrations, the activities….all we ask is that you use your hoarded supplies to create with and let us know what they are when you post.

Here is my card for you today.

 

I’m sure you recognize the paper from another card I did. This MME paper is great for fall projects, lots of rich colors.  I used some more of the American Crafts pumpkin ribbon.  The leaves were cut out using my little leaf punches and then the pumpkins and gate were from a die cut swap I did ages ago.  The sentiment is from a Stampin up set that has a matching punch.  I’ve used the punch before but not the stamp set so really loving paring the two together.

I just love the autumn feel of this card! 🙂

Please stop by the blog to see the rest of the inspiration the girls have for you this week and to enter our challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!
