Your Day Card - TMS #543


Good day crafty friends! We have a new sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one is by Debbie Foster. For my card I mixed some older paper with a new stamp. The stamp set is by Newton's Nook and it's called Dainty Daisies. Copic markers were used to color the image and then the coordinating die cuts were used to cut it out. The biggest debate was over which color of  cardstock to use for matting the patterned paper. After consulting my hubby I was persuaded to go with the Tangerine Tango rather than black or mossy green. There are no embellishments, just simple and easy this week. We would love for you to play along! Just make a card using the sketch and link your creation by 8 pm EST on Sunday. Click HERE for all the details and design team inspiration. I'm linking this Your Day Card to the Crafting Happiness anything goes challenge with flowers option. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Bunny Fabulous Day Card


Hope you're having a great day! My hubby is working today, so I took advantage of the time to myself to make this Bunny Fabulous Day Card. It's been a long time since I made a square card and Cute Card Thursday has a square challenge this week, so I made a square card. The image is called Morning Glory Bunny from Whimsy Stamps and it was colored with Copic markers. I've hoarded the floral patterned paper for awhile, it was a freebie from a magazine from 2012, but it goes really well with the image. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and I added a stamped yellow butterfly and three purple sequins for detail and that's it. I'm glad you stopped by!

Had Me at Meow Card

Hello! Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I always save making my hubby's card for last. That way I'm not tempted to give it to him super early. This Had Me at Meow Card is the card I made him. It's purple, which is my favorite color, and it features cats from the Newton's Sweetheart stamp set. The kitties were colored to look like our first two house cats. They are no longer with us and we miss them everyday. The die cut hearts were made using the Stacked Hearts die by Simon Says Stamp. Two patterned papers were used and they were both from my scrap bin. Everything was adhered to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock by Stampin' Up and then adhered to the white card base. That's it. So glad you stopped by and I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day!

*Cats are my favourite animal because they closely resemble my personality. Sometimes I want to be left alone, sometimes I want cuddles, the food I ate yesterday... well today I can change my mind and not like it anymore. 😊You get the idea.

Thanks a Bunch Card - TMS #541

It's Tuesday again! This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we are revisiting Melissa's favorite sketch from 2019 and she selected sketch #511 from last July. For that challenge post click HERE. I always like going back to see what everyone made before I start making my revisited cards. This Thanks a Bunch Card uses some new papers with an older stamp set both by Doodlebug Designs. The paper is from the new Love Notes paper pad and the stamp and die set is called Thanks a Bunch. Copic markers were used to color the image and then it was fussy-cut.

All Nine Lives Card

Good day crafty friends! We finally got snow this morning and it's really pretty. Our cats have been glued to the windows because I feed the birds and there have been a ton in the backyard. It's made for a wonderful day to stay inside!

This All Nine Lives Card was made for an anniversary that falls on Valentine's Day. Two Newton's Nook stamp sets were used, Newton's Sweetheart (cats, hearts and sentiment) and Newton's Valentine (little flowers). Copic markers were used to color the images and then they were die cut with the coordinating dies. The grass was die cut using Newton's Land Borders Die. There are small red hearts all over the red paper by Doodlebug Design and a large heart was die cut and then a piece of marble paper adhered behind. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that's it. So glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Love Owl Card - TMS #540


Welcome back to the start of another Tuesday Morning Sketches revisited sketch from 2019. This week is LJ's pick and she chose sketch #517 from last August. You can see the original challenge post HERE. My card from last year featured a stamp by Unity Stamps, so I decided to use another Unity Stamp on this card. The owl image is from the My Kinda Favorite Owl stamp set and it was colored with Copic markers. Most of the patterned papers are from the French Kiss paper pad by Doodlebug Design with the exception of the punched hearts that paper came from my scrap bin. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that pretty much sums up this Love Owl Card. We sure hope you will join us this week! Click HERE for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. You have until Sunday at 8 pm EST to link your creation.
