Tuesday Morning Sketch!

by Debbie Seyer - A Peek Into My Stamping Room

This week DRS Designs is sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches! You can see the sketch and the great prize HERE. Be sure to check out all the great samples by the Tuesday Morning Sketches design team using DRS images!!

Using a sketch is one of my favorite ways to get my creativity going! I had alot of fun with this sketch. So much, in fact, that I made 2 cards for today!

My first card sticks to the sketch really close.


I used the new release XL Design Ribbon Slide (G141). I stamped the image and embossed it using some clear embossing powder. After I heat set the powder, I cut out the square and the ribbon slide portion. I threaded my ribbon thru the middle and tied a bow. I stamped/embossed the With Sympathy (F687) sentiment and added some sponging around the outside. Sympathy cards are hard for me to make. I am used to using bright cheerful colors and lots of embellishments on my cards but a sympathy card needs alot less to get the point across.

For my second card, I changed up the sketch just alittle bit. I used a sentiment as the main focal point and embellishments along the bottom. Here I chose a bright, cheerful color of orange!!


The sentiment is a new release called Song In My Heart (G202). I stamped the sentiment first and then cut/embossed using Labels 11 Nestabilities(tm). I also cut/embossed some Classic Heart Nestabilities(tm) and put those along the bottom, held in place by some heart shaped pearl brads.

I love this sketch and hope you will give it a try! Be sure to check out all the great samples from the Tuesday Morning Sketches design team! If you play along you could win a great prize from DRS Designs! Have a great Tuesday!
