Pumpkin Peeker


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches! This week we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. I have used the adorable Black Cat Pumpkin Peeker for my card. This week we have a multi layered sketch for you! Not sure I picked the right DP for this sketch as the little squares really hides most of it? But overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I colored it with my copics and added Glossy Accents to the Cat's nose, leaves and the little heart. Added a little gingham bow at the top and a little acorn embellishment at the bottom. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by an see what the rest of the DT has come up with. List of challenges is listed below.

Textures of Fall

 
Hello Fall nice to see you! It's finally feeling like fall here in South Central PA. Summer didn't want to leave, not that I minded a whole lot except it was so humid! Running the AC in October is very unusual for us. Now we have our first frost warning for the AM. Anyway unto my card. I just had to make another card with this adorable scarecrow from DRS Designs. This time I cut him out and added some burlap. I just LOVE the colors on this one! Used the plaid paper for my inspiration. That's it for today! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Challenges are listed below.

Christmas Bauble


Hello! Today's card uses the Alcohol Ink Baubles tutorial from over at Splitcoaststampers. This was a bit messy but a lot of fun! At first I didn't think I'd be able to do it because believe it or not I have no alcohol ink pads/reinkers?! Than I realized that I could use my Copic marker refills. I need to get some more glossy card stock and play around with other color combos! I used my Taylored Expressions Snowfall embossing folder for my background. The snowflake die cut is from Poppystamps. I didn't have any ornament dies so I turned this stitched tag die into one. A little larger than I'd like but it works. If this wasn't so messy to mass produce I'd consider this for my personal Christmas cards this year?!! Maybe if I find a smaller ornament die I like I'll change my mind! Anyway that's it for now, thanks so much for stopping by. Challenges are listed below.

Autumn Blessings


Hello! Today I have pretty CAS card to share with you! I embossed a piece of Coredinations card stock with a pumpkin folder and lightly sanded over it for the lighter core color to show thru. Added some ribbon and a die cut sentiment and called it done! Quick and Easy which doesn't happen often for me! ;-) List of challenges are listed below.

Spooky


Hello! Today I have a CAS (Clean and Simple) card to share with you! I found this pack of googly eyes in different sizes and colors at one of the dollar stores? Thinking it was Dollar General but not positive? If not there it was the Dollar Tree, anyway I thought it would make some fun cards for Halloween?! Or possibly some monster birthday cards in the future? I embossed the background and randomly placed the eyes. Added and sentiment and called it done. Quick and Easy! Thanks for stopping by I enjoy reading your comments!

Embossed Poinsettias


Hello! I decided it's time to get working on some Christmas cards! I recently picked up this Taylored Expressions embossing folder at my local stamp store and have been itching to play with it. Thought this weeks CAS(E) sketch would do well showcasing it?! Although as always I probably added a layer to many for CAS? I used a gold embossed poinsettia from the Gina K year of flowers set and added some gold nailheads. The sentiment is  Paper Smooches die. The challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

An Apple a Day


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches! I'll admit I was leery when I first saw this sketch. Took me awhile to come up with a plan but I have to say that I'm very happy with the end results! The stamps are PTI and the die cut is from a Peachy Cheap set/deal that I got recently. The embossed background is an old SU favorite of mine called Square Lattice, LOVE this folder. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has created.

Morning Kick Start


Hello! Dusted off an oldie this morning to try an get another card in for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop before it ends. I used a Stampabilities House Mouse stamp called Morning Kick Start. I paper pieced the mug and colored it with a combo of my Copics and my Prisma colored pencils. I just can't get fur to look right with the markers or skin tones to look good with pencils but I'm happy when I use the combo of the two! Used more of my beloved Lawn Fawn plaid paper, hope they keep making it. Love how this one turned out. Thanks for stopping by your visits/comments make my day!

Scarecrow Fun


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week we are sponsored by DRS Designs. I've used the Large Scarecrow and Happy Fall Y'All Greeting on my card. When I saw this adorable scarecrow I knew I needed to use some plaid paper. Went to my favorite for that Lawn Fawn, LOVE their plaids! After finding the paper I wanted I than found copics to match and colored my image. Which is a reverse for me as I usually color a pile of images than find papers later when I make it into a card. I added some strips of burlap and called it done. Love the colors on this one a lot .

Colors of Fall


Hello! Today's card uses a stamp I've had for YEARS and never used. Unfortunately I have way to many of those. It's an un mounted stamp I think I got from DRS Designs at a stamp show, although I can't find it on their website? Maybe it's retired or my memory is failing me?!! I colored it with my pencils and found this YNS sketch to use with it. Still not sure about rounded corners but figured it's time to change it up a bit and just went with it. Sorta misfigured my paper size and had to move my enamel dots off to the side. Just LOVE making fall cards, think it's the warm color tones I like so much?! Anyway that's all for now thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Pumpkin Spice

 
Hello! It's Tuesday so it's time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's a fun one this week and perfect for using those Tag dies! I'm still on my Prismacolor pencil kick and enjoying it. I used the Unity Pumpkin Spice mini set, another one that I bought the other week on their $3 sale! Still have more new stuff to ink up so hopefully in the next few weeks you see them cause a lot of them were Fall related. One of my most favorite kinds of cards to make.

Fall Greetings


Hello! Had a bit of time to play today and here is one of cards I made. It uses a DRS Designs stamp that I cut apart after coloring to make it work for the sketch. Here is a card I made a few years ago with the same stamp left the way it was made. The paper is from a DCVW 6x6 pad called The Harvest House Stack. Love the non traditional colors in this pad. I had colored my image first and was lucky to find the perfect paper to go with it. I will say this picture doesn't do this card justice.....it looks much better in person! That's all for now but be sure to check back tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch! Challenges I'm entering are listed below.

Thanks a Bushel


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I'll admit this one had me going for a bit but guess it was worth it in the end?!! I used a Beccy's Place digi for my card this week. I colored it with my Prisma Color pencils, been really enjoying using them again! I used my neglected paper crimper for my little side strip, added some twine and a wooden sentiment tag. Found some little wooden embellishments to finish it off.

Winter's Butterfly


Hello! Today I have my attempt at a all white card/challenge! I feel like it's missing something but couldn't decide what so left it be. I just used a Darice embossing folder and added 2 different large snowflake dies that I had. I covered the snowflakes with stickles and added some pearls. The sentiment is from an older Gina K set. Thanks for looking and challenges I'm entering are listed below. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch.

Krafty Pumpkins


Hello! Got to play with another of my new Unity stamps today. When I saw their challenge on FB thought I'd give it a try. It was a bit of a challenge for me to do just a "pop" of color (I choose the color orange) but I love how it turned out.  I like the look of the image stamped on kraft and colored with my Prismacolor pencils. I'll be doing that again for sure. Well that's it for now, thanks for stopping by and be sure to let me know what you think? Love reading your comments.

Fall Acorns


Hello! I had some new Unity Stamps I just had to play with. I may or may not have done a little bit of damage with that $3 sale the other week! A few larger sets that were also on sale may have also fallen into my cart. My card uses the "nuts but I love ya" set, colored with my Prismacolor pencils. I liked the Your Next Stamp Sketch so much that I used earlier this week that I just had to play along again before it ended. Been in the fall making card mood so I'm sure you'll be seeing more soon! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! List of challenges is listed below.
