Birthday Greeting

Hello everyone. This afternoon I have had the opportunity to get into my craft room to do both some crafting and some computer work as well. First onto my card creation and it started with a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Tuesday Morning Sketch #641

I didn’t 100% follow the sketch but the reason for this is that I wanted to make a card with the 2nd half of my image that I used on my “Thinking of You” card that I shared last week. Plus also the paper pad that I had on my desk worked with the colours that I had used in the image. I had coloured this image in with my Copic Markers before cutting the first part of the image. This sketch suited the piece that I had leftover. To give a little definition to the image I used some Love From Lizi Gold Glitter Pin Stripe Peel Offs. And some Gold Star Stickers from my stash; not sure who made these.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card made with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Before you depart I want to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone. As I write this I am away for a couple of days with family but it is very wet because we have a cyclone called Seth that has turned into a rain depression sitting just off the coast. Hopefully, we will get some periods of dry weather so that we can enjoy some time outside. For now, though I am using the craft supplies that I have brought on camp with me 🙂

But onto my card making. This card I got to make just before we departed for camp and I still wanted to share it so I took a photo and uploaded it to my computer before we left.

I am here with a design using a card sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Their design team is taking a look back at previous sketches and we have this one to use in our creations.

This time around I decided to turn the sketch on its side to suit the image that I found in my stash. But this is something that I love about sketches they can be used in different orientations to suit the supplies that you are working with.

These papers were the last from the paper pad that I was trying to finish off. I didn’t like the plain design of the main paper so I went to my stencil supply and found this net design. Then I went to my drawer of distress inks and pulled out my Dried Marigold and a blending brush. This helped this paper be more cohesive with my image of the fishing village. Everything was matted with dark blue layering weight paper and to finish off the card I added some Ebony Black Nuvo Drops with a sentiment from the Black & White A5 Sentiment Sheets from Paper Rose Studios.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card design. I hope that you have found this post helpful and I hope that you will have some time today to be crafty – I plan to be. Before I go here is my final thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

Happy Anniversary

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a card that I made with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

And this is the card that I made with this sketch

06 20th TMS610

The picture is actually a Winter image but I decided that I wanted to be in more Spring than the Winter weather that I am experiencing at the moment. So while using my Copic markers to colour this image I added leaves to the branches and bushes plus grass to give a more spring feel to it. I did also use my MFT cloud stencil behind everything as well but the colour I used is quite subtle. The anniversary sentiment is from the Phil Martin Essential Sentiments Set.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and looking at my card make for the Tuesday Morning Sketches #610. I hope that today will find you doing something that you truly love.

Until my next post,
Be kind to Yourself and others.

TMS #551

Hello everyone. 2 cards in 1 day – well actually the previous post for today was a scheduled post but this one was made this afternoon. Trying to run away from my pain so I am concentrating on something else :/

04 25 More Cake

So I went looking for a current sketch challenge that was happening and found sketch #551 from Tuesday Morning Sketches that I could play around with.

I loved this sketch because it gave me an opportunity to get rid of some of the strips of paper that I had leftover from other cards. These papers are from the same black and white pad that I used for a couple of my previous cards. I am slowly using this pad up which is a good thing.

The cupcake and stand stamps are from a magazine I got ages ago. The sentiment stamp is from My Favorite Things and the set is “Anything but basic Birthday sentiments”. This stamp set is becoming a fav of mine as it has wonderful sentiments. Each of the banner pieces I sponged with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink just so they would stand out from the background.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Just to let me know that you stopped on by today please consider leaving either a comment or a like, I would appreciate it. But before you depart my blog I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

This is true for any situation not just fitness. Because if you keep going you will be closer than you were before.

Until my next post,
🙂 Tracy
