Check out this lovely sketch for this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

So I’m jumping on the autumn/Christmas bandwagon here and created a fall themed card, even though I’m desperately trying to hold onto the last remnants of summer!

I started out with the paper. I received it in a swap and thought it was really nice and so I used that to inspire my card. I added a strip of gold glitter paper from my stash and then the tree is from a cricut die cut that I did awhile ago and sits in my fall box. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions, and then some enamel dots from my stash to finish it off. I also added a layer of brown twine just for something extra.

Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the amazing projects from the rest of the DT and be sure to play along with us! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to see today’s Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this week.

Debbie created this little beauty

I actually put this card together at the farm last week with those limited supplies that I brought along, remember? Not too bad if I do say so myself.

The DP is from Crate Paper and is a 6×6 pack that I have been working through for awhile now. I already had the image in my die cut tin. I didn’t have any shaped die cuts so I had to cut the oval out by hand which is a bit rough but gives it some visual interest right? 🙂 All the die cuts I had in my tin so that was ok, but I didn’t have any ribbon or twine! So I managed to find some kite string in the trailer and used that!! I took a little bit and colored it with an ink pad for the brown bow, just to set it off a little bit.

I think this turned out really well considering what I had to work with..LOL. Now be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you and as always, don’t forget to play along with us.

Well, if you have been over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, then you know this week’s new sketch is up!

I was playing around with some PinkFresh flower die cuts for my card!

The DP is just from my stash and the sentiment is a new one from my card class a couple of weeks ago! It’s also from PinkFresh and is from the Simplest Gestures stamp set. A little twine and some enamel dots from Your Next Stamp finish off this card!

The DT has some really great projects this week to highlight this sketch (don’t they always though!). I hope you will stop by and give them some love!

New DT!

Hey everyone! I’m really excited to be a new designer for the ‘There’s a Stamp for That’ Design Team! TASFT can be found on facebook and each month we have a fun challenge with 3 different aspects that you can add to your project.

I’m really excited to bring you my inspiration piece for this month’s challenge! You get a few different themes to choose from for challenge #23 (Frogs, Paper Piecing or Freshly Made Sketches #458–used with permission. ) I decided to go with the frogs, because well why not! Some of the frog stamps out there are adorable as I’m sure you have already seen so far!

My stamp is one of the free ones that you sometimes get when you buy the magazines from the UK or Australia! It came with a fun stamp set, a stencil and a die! I love this little guy. I paired him with some Doodlebug and Echo Park papers and some twine from my stash. I colored him with copics and added a little white gelly pen for some added interest. A few enamel dots and voila! good to go!

Head on over to Facebook, join the group and play along in our challenges! We can’t wait to see what inspires you!

TOBHC: November

November is here! Can you believe it!

Ok so today is our first full challenge over at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge...our jump start challenge was such an overwhelming success we can’t wait to see what you create with a whole month to do so!

Look at our awesome November mood board!

Our theme is anything goes and we hope that you will use this mood board as a kick start to your project as you play along with us!

I was really inspired by the black, white and purple color scheme as well as the witch silhouette for my card.

I used some Tim Holtz distress oxides to create the background and then I had a Recollections stamp and die set for the images. A little scrap of DP and some twine as well as a sentiment from Tim Holtz and we are set to go. I love how this turned out.

Now head over to the blog to see how the rest of the team were inspired by the board and then we hope that you will play along with us!

Glad to see you here for the next challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches!   Without further adieu here we go!

Using up some more of my Echo Park Coffee 6×6 paper and die cuts I came up with this gem

It’s pretty simple and the only other things I added were some ribbon and twine from my stash.  Be sure to stop by theblogand see what the rest of the DT has created and be sure to play along with us!

Welcome to Tuesday!

Here we go with our latest sketch challenge on Tuesday Morning Sketches! This is a pretty one!

For fun on this one, I had my son pick out 5 cues from my challenge bucket  to use on my card.  This is a great idea if sometimes you  have trouble getting your mojo going.   I have this bucket that lists all kinds of scrappy goodies on a piece of paper, ie patterned paper, twine, ribbon, embossing, stamping, eyelets etc.   Then you pick 5 and incorporate them into your project!  So the 5 he picked for me were

twine, freebie, washi tape,  embossing (heat or dry), tiny type word stickers

So this is what turned out!

For the freebie, I used the leaf die cuts!  It turned out pretty good I think.  I had this DP in my autumn folder for awhile now and I wanted to use it.

I hope you will play along with us this week!

Hey you! I hope you had a great weekend!  I know I  did…I finally got to go to my farm in Saskatchewan!  We’ve been trying since early April to get out there, only to be denied 3x because of one thing and another.

On to today’s sketch challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Patti brings us this gem!

This is what I have for you today.  I made this for my father in law who has a birthday coming up!

I believe the paper is from G45.  The twine is from my stash as are the enamel dots.  The sentiment was sent to me and worked perfect for this card.

I hope that you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for you and also leave them some love.   Play along with us this week, won’t you 🙂

 

 

 

Hello

Hi there!  It’s a new week and a new challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog today.  I’m hosting this one, and our challenge is to upcycle/recycle an aspect of your project.

For me, I found a couple of paint chip samples on my desk and chose to use them with some die cuts to create a couple of cards.

For the first one, the I used them to cut out the HELLO sentiment as well as the feathers, both of which are from Stampin Up.  I added some embossing, twine and some Nuvo dots to finish it off.

My second card, I made some shaker pockets and die cut some stars and balloons from what was left over after the first card.  The DP is just from my stash and the sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.

Holidays in Red

It’s February!  I love February mainly because it is my birthday month!

Here is a quick little card for our Christmas Crafts All Year Round challenge for the month.  Our theme is RED.  Your project should show red as the predominant color.

All the elements for this card are just from my Christmas stash.  I used a project life card as the focal point and then just built around that using some DP, twine, a red doily and some bling.  Nothing fancy but definitely screams RED!  I hope you like it and please play along with us this month and show us your red creations!
