Tuesday Morning Sketches #161

Today I needed to make a card to send to a friend.  I found a cute little stamped image I had in my stash and then went to Tuesday Morning Sketches for inspiration for my card.  The sketch to use was the following image.

I think I am stuck in a pink rut because every card I make is pink.  Not sure what is up with that.  The designer paper is Lost & Found - Madison Avenue.  So this is my finished card.

Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge

Today's card was for a image challenge on SCS sent to me from Imke in Germany.  This image is called "Pot o'Orchids for Lulu" from Stamping Bella.  I'm not sure if there is a pink orchid but mine had to be because I love the color pink.  The designer paper is Lost & Found - Madison Avenue.  It is all pinks and chocolate.  After I colored the image, I went to Tuesday Morning Sketches for some inspiration in what to do with my image. This week you had the choice of 4 different sketches.  I think this one worked perfect for my image.

Halloween Shadow Box

Well I finally finished my Halloween Shadow Box for a class that I am hoping to teach at Remember This Remember That in Gardner on Friday, September 14, 2012 from 1pm - 3pm.  I know day time isn't a good time for classes but I am really hoping that some of my friends will be able to attend this class.  Most of you know that I didn't get enough attendance for my August Class so I am really hoping for enough people this time to have the class.
This is going to be such a fun class because of all the dies you get to work with.  Just think that in 2 hours you will have this great framed art for your wall. 
 I have put these cards in the frame so they are temporary and I have another group of cards planned for Christmas.
Be sure and call 856-6030 to sign up for this class.  I believe the fee is going to be $17 which covers all the cards.  The frame will be separate and not sure of a price yet on that.  Please join me for some fun.  I have a special gift from me for each participant.

Organizing my Dies

 Do you dies look like this?  I finally decided that I needed to organize myself a little bit.  I have seen several examples of ways to manage them but this one works the best for me.  I went to the closest discount store near my house and bought this double CD case.  I also bought some magnetic sheets.
At first I was using the whole sheet like the ovals below and then I decided that it was kind of expensive to do it that way so I just put a few strips in different places on the card stock and they held just fine.   I put the names on the outside of the pocket so I could get them back in the space they belong.  I also divided them into spellbinders, MFT and Memory Box. I think I will have to do a separate one for my Papertrey Ink Dies because I have so many.    So this is my attempt at organization.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #159

I can't believe it has been a whole week since I have posted.  Wow, where does the time go?  Today I decided I needed to make a card for a secret sis on Splitcoast Stampers.  The sketch below is the sketch for this week from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  What a nice challenge it was.
I used an image from Stamping Bella.  I believe she is called missmatch Ketto.  I used a new paper called Cashmere Dame from Glitz that I purchased at Remember This Remember That in Gardner, Kansas.  My favorite paper of the week. My theme was going to be cherries for the kit I am getting together for my secret sister so I used the blue print for the background and added a few other papers from the set.  I love the zig zag paper also.  The cherry stamp is from PTI as is the sentiment.  Add a little bling and you have a cute little card.
Check back tomorrow because I am going to post how I finally got my dies organized.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #158

Today I was looking for a challenge and as always went to Tuesday Morning Sketches.  And as always, they have provided a great sketch to go by.  I decided to use one of the new stamp sets from Stampin Up called Summer Silhouettes.  It is definitely going to be one of my new favorites.  The designed paper I used was from Stampin Up and was called Attic Boutique.  I also used some Spellbinder dies for the scalloped square and the label.  The sentiment was from Papertrey Ink.  The flowers were My Favorite Things Mini Rolled Roses.  I can't wait to send this birthday card to a very special friend.

Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge #157

I really needed to make a birthday card today so I went over to Tuesday Morning Sketches where I can always find some wonderful inspiration.  I found another great sketch that would work perfect for my card.

The designer paper is Lost & Found Market Street by My Mind's Eye.  The image is from SS099 From the Garden set from Flourishes.  I used my copics to color this image.  I then added a sentiment from PTI and used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch for a little added dimension.
