Tuesday Morning Sketches #485

Happy New Year.. I know... I had planned to post much sooner in the newly minted 2019 but life got in the way.

I had a few crafty misstarts over the last month too and creativity fizzled. My sister and I did a little Facetime creativity session this week though and it was fabulous.



I am playing along with the current Tuesday Morning Sketches, once upon a time, I was a member of this lovely Design Team. Sadly one of the ladies, Jesse, I had designed with has passed away.. see more on the TMS Blog.


I love the layers, this card is for my son as he turns 25 today. I added a layer of black cardstock to each panel. The main sentiment is popped up with foam tape and I heat embossed Happy Birthday in white on black cardstock. I finished with black Nuvo Drops.


Supplies: White and Black cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, Simon Says Stamp - Tiny Words, Penny Black - Christmas Cheer, Nuvo drops.

I have a few unposted cards lying around and I hope to get them posted soon.

Celebrating you

I used a simple layout for this card. I cut the DP and used the opposite side of the paper for the strip down the side. I added foam tape for dimensions then added some twine. The panels are popped up with foam tape.

The sentiment has a layer of black cardstock and is also popped up with foam tape.



Today would have been my mom's birthday, no matter how long a loved one has been gone there are days when you feel that loss more than others.. I love you mom, miss you.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Penny Black - Smile today, Designer Paper -Recollectionstions

Celebrate today.. every day.

Wonderful Celebration

I used another simple layout for this card, I love the pretty bold print of the designer paper.

I added a small strip of the backside of this DP along the right side then chose to use a large popped up sentiment. I finished with some clear crystal gems.


Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper - Graphic 45, Penny Black - Sentiment Collection.

Cosmos shimmer

I made a card similar to this earlier in the year but I really love the design.

I used distress inks to create the vibrate colours then added some shimmer with shimmer paste and a stencil. I added the Cosmo die cut over top then added some half pearls.


The sentiment is simply stamped then popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: White cardstock, Technique Tuesday- Find Beauty, Simon Says Stamp - Cosmos Frame, Cosmic Shimmer, half pearls.

Cheers,

Beary winter wishes

I have missed a few Monday postings with something merry and festive so I thought I would pick it up for today.

This is a simple card, with easy layers of designer paper doing all the work. Each layer has grey cardstock in behind. I popped up the sentiment with foam tape to finish.

Winter Wedding

Goodness, I have been posting few and far between these days, where has time vanished too...9 days till Christmas.

Today's card is a congratulations to one of my husband's co-workers who had a winter wedding is a very beautiful place... outdoors in the snow. These Tim Holtz tree die cuts arrived in the mail on Friday and I could not resist using them.

I layered the card using white and black cardstock, the main panel is embossed with a snowy background embossing folder.  I die cut and layered the trees then added some Nuvo glitter pen, although it does not show in the photo below there is lots of beautiful shimmer on the trees.



I did a blend of stamped and heat embossed sentiments, both popped up with foam tape. I finished with some sequins.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Simon Says Stamps - Congratulations, Sizzix - Woodlands, Carta Bella - Snowy Pines, Cuttlebug - Embossing Folder, sequins.

Cheers,
