TMS #174: Celebrate the Season

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Hi Friends! With Tuesday here, it's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches.

DRS Designs is our sponsor this week, and they generously provided stamps to the team for this challenge, and our Melissa came up with a great sketch.
I think I've been influenced by our Best of the Best Guest Designer, Silke, and her gorgeous white, embossed cards. I thought about using my Scoreboard to create embossed lines on the cs as she does, but I knew I could never come close to her gorgeous creations, so I used an embossing folder instead. :)

I stamped the Winter Trees stamp with Rhubarb Memento Ink, then added dimensional snow with my Snow Marker.

The sentiment on the front of the card was part of a piece of DP, which I cut out with a Splendid Circles Spellbinders die, and the pine is from a McGill punch.
In keeping with the sparse color on the front of the card, I simply stamped the Beauty of Nature stamp on the inside of the card base, without any other adornment.

I hope you'll join us this week in this fun challenge, but be sure to check out the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge blog first, to see the rest of the DT's cards, as well as our Best of the Best GD's card. You'll truly be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week.
