Vintage Birthday

 It's Tuesday. Time for another Tuesday Morning Sketches designer's favorites. This week we are featuring Melissa's favorite.

I have been trying my hand at some vintage cards. I is so much easier when you have this beautiful patterned paper from Dress My Craft 6x6 pad. Then I layered on a piece of sparkly netting. The 4 strips are form the scrap box. The oval die cut has an old SU sentiment. The bird is fussy cut from some old SU paper.

Go check out the inspiration from the design team and share your creation with us.

This is my original card

Sweet Valentine.

I have chosen this sketch this week for Tuesday Morning Sketches as my favorite

I chose a sweet valentine this time.

The papers are from SU. I found a vellum envelope in my stash. It was difficult to see so I backed it with the same pink as the card base. I cut out some hearts from the designer paper and glued them to look like they are spilling out of the envelope. Pink sequins accent the edge.

Here is my original card.

 This week Tuesday Morning Sketches is featuring Debi's favorite.

I'm trying to replenish my stock of get well cards before the flu season ramps up. 

The papers are the reverse of the same sheet from SU's Ever Eden. The sloth is from SU's "Back on Your Feet". I stamped, lightly colored it with colored pencils and fussy cut it. The sentiment was die cut. 

I think this image reflects how those people who  are suffering from COVID or the flu are feeling. Hopefully this will cheer them up.

This was my original card.

 Tuesday Morning Sketches is back from the holiday break. For the first few weeks, we are using design team favorites from last year. The first one is Debbie's favorite.

I have a Valentine to share

The papers and heart die are from SU. I made the sentiment on the computer so I could size it to fit the heart.

I hope you get some inspiration from the design team and share your own creations.

Guy Valentine

Most of the Valentines we make are more girly--heart prints, pastel colors, lacy and frilly.

I have some inspiration today for your best guy.

The card base and stamping are SU's Cherry Cobbler. I think the darker color is more subdued than the bright reds. I don't know who made the heart dies. Rather than ribbon, I used red and white twine for a bow connecting the hearts. The sentiment is an old one from SU! I adhered them all to a piece of wood looking paper that was lightly streaked with Cherry Cobbler. It give some depth to the card.

This is for TIME OUT Challenges
