TSOT #137

Hi! It's time again for another sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. It's one of my sketches and we also have the added theme of "Autumn in the air".

For the past month or so, my creativeness has gone awol. So this is the first card that I feel like it didn't take forever to create and I can look at it and say "I dont hate it" (but then I dont love it either :) I think we are our own harshest critics.
I did challenge myself to try something new and for my borders and details, I drew around the edges with a black felt tip pen.
I actually found the theme a funny one, as here in Australia we're going into spring, so it's nice and warm and cold autumn weather is now a thing of the past!!! (yes I love spring/summer :)

So now over to you, it's great seeing your creations and how you interpret the sketch. If you want to see the other DT's creations, then click here.

Hello! It's time again for another sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesday, with the additional theme of using circles on your card.

I wanted to make another Christmas card - my stash is no where near where it needs to be! I heat embossed my image panel and sentiment in gold. The baubles are made from the retired stamp set pendant park and punched out with different size punches, I got the idea from Mary Fish.

Now over to you - it's great seeing what you come up with.

Just also wanted to welcome the new designers that have joined our team - they are fabulous! And if you want to see the design teams creations, go here.

Thanks for looking

Hi! Well it's been awhile since I have posted a card that isn't for a design team commitment.

Back in July I attended a stamp retreat and over the next few days I'll try to share the cards I made (I must admit that I got pretty side tracked and ended up enjoying the good company, rather than
creating :)

I'm going to start with my favourite one first:

The great thing about going to a retreat, is being able to use stamps I dont own. I stamped this in white ink onto crumb cake and let it dry a little, then started colouring with ink pads and blender pen.

I LOVE the soft effect and I'll have to look at what other stamps I can colour this way.

Thanks for looking
