with deepest sympathy - TMS #453

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!    My card this week was difficult to make.  It was for some dear friends who lost a close loved one suddenly.  I have to say that while sympathy cards are difficult, I put love and care into each one praying that it is a blessing and encouragement to the recipient.  


My paper panel was a scrap and the fishtail was hand cut.  The flower is Blossoming from MHK Designs.  It's colored with  my Spectrum Noir markers.  I had 3... colored the first one and fussy cut the entire flower.  I added it to the sentiment panel that was cut out using CottageCutz Double-stitched Ovals.  Then I colored and fussy cut just the flower, then fussy cut the center.  My "jewels" at the top are the Paper Studio.  

Here's our sketch for the week...

Be still, my soul - TMS #452

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!   Here's my card for this week...

It looks rather dull, but it much prettier IRL.


My sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps Hymn Blocks.  I love this set!!  I actually made several just like this with the different stamps.  The verse is cut with Spellbinders Postage Stamps and Classic Squares.  My DP is from my scrap pile.  The flower is the Paper Studio.  The foliage is Die-Namites Budding Branch.  


Here's our sketch for the week...

I bought paper! :) - TMS #451

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!   Happy May 1st!  Can it really be May??!?  We had snow flurries yesterday... and the forecast high for tomorrow is 81!!!   Yeah, it's been a crazy spring!!   

Here's my card for this week...


I made this using a NEW PAPER PACK that I just bought!!  After 9 months, my "I'm not buying any more paper" has ended.  I really don't need this, but it was 50% off at HL and I could not resist!  Isn't this pretty??!!??  

My image is All Dressed Up "Jam Jars" that was printed on vellum and colored with 
 Spectrum Noir markers.  I put it behind a "window" since it's impossible to adhere vellum and it not be seen.  The gem flower is a part of a long decorative swirly thing I've had forever.  The sentiment inside lets the recipient know that this is an anniversary card.  


Here's our sketch for this week... as you can see I turned it.

Thinking of you - TMS #450


I was able to spend a bit of time in my craft room this evening and finished my card - though it's VERY late - for Tuesday Morning Sketches #450.



This week, we're starting something new and will play with this the last Tuesday of each month -- a blank canvas challenge...


I faked my watercolor. :)  I used TH distress inks and water. I will use more water next time.  My image is a freebie from Spectrum Noir and is colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and Classic Squares.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat.  The ribbon is from the Paper Studio, and I added a few adhesive pearls.

You've still got some time, so please come over and play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Thank you - TMS #449

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!

I've got a simple thank you card to share today.  Actually, I've got 2 of the same sketch.  




Here's card number 2...




Here's the sketch...  It's a pretty basic sketch, but you can change it up depending on your paper and/or embellies!

On your special day - TMS #446


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I'm so excited about my card today!!!!  It's my daughter's birthday card.  She is 20, but for years has loved and still loves Beauty and the Beast!  Check this out...


(I added the pic in a huge size so you can see the detail.)

This was really fun to make!!  If you visit regularly, you've probably heard me say I'm using up scraps and already printed images.  {{FYI my 6 month "I'm not buying anymore paper" spree has lasted over 8 mos!}}  In case, you're impressed with my self-control, I must admit I have purchased a few dies with Christmas money, and I did get some black cardstock that I "needed."  ;)  
I recently found this Disney Belle Enchanted die and was so excited because, as I said, my daughter loves Beauty and the Beast!!  I came home and began to play with it.  The tiny face stamp is included.  So cute!  I cut it twice in yellow.  I put tape on the back of the second one before taking it out of the die in order to keep the tiny pieces in the skirt.  I cut it in brown, cream, white, and red and trimmed to get the hair, face, dress trim, and rose. 

Supplies...

~the Paper Studio "The Linen Door" DP 
~Simon Says Stamp Tiny Tags
~Disney "Enchanted Belle" die
~CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles
~CottageCutz Stitched Ovals
~Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics
~My Pink Stamper Family & Friends clear sentiment 
~the Paper Studio adhesive enamel dots
~baker's twine


Here's our awesome sketch for this week...

Remembering... your work of faith - TMS #445


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! 

Not all of the cards I make for TMS are made with a recipient in mind, but this one definitely was.  It was a thank you for a couple who planted a church not far from us.  He is now battling cancer, and they could not continue.  At their last service there, the church family wrote their appreciation in this card...  


This verse freebie from Word Art Wednesday (back in October) was perfect for their card!!  (The card is 5x7 so there was more room to sign.)  It's cut out using unbranded cross stitch ovals from Cheapo Dies.  My DP is DCWV Mariposa.  Primo flowers, Spellbinders Foliage leaves, and a few adhesive dots finished it off.     

Challenges... 
Inkspirational Challenge #156 - work ("work of faith" in sentiment)
Word Art Wednesday #326-327 - anything goes 


I also made another card using this sketch just because I had a sentiment sitting around...



This was made with a $1 clear stamp, the unbranded cross stitch ovals, the Paper Studio flowers and gems, and DCWV Spring and Summer corrugated paper that I've had forever.


Challenges...
Simply Create Too #136 - use green
Di's Digis Designs - lots of green
Addicted-to-stamps #162 - thank you
DLART Thankful Thursday #224 - green and/or thankful



Here's our wonderful sketch....
