Tuesday Morning Sketches #191 - Me!

Good morning! I've been all aflutter waiting for today to get here - not only did I design the sketch for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge, but I'm the sponsor :) Create a project using the sketch & link it up at TMS for a chance to win your choice of 18 crocheted mats - your choice of colours, shapes, and size.

Gender-neutral baby cards are in big demand at the moment, so I thought I'd get out some yellows & go to town:

Supplies: All Night Media footprints stamp; Stampin' Up sentiment; American Crafts chipboard hearts; Versamark, Grey Flannel Memento, and Mustard Seed distress inks; clear embossing powder; polka dot embossing folder; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; We R Memory Keepers washi tape & corner chomper; crocheted mat by me!

I heat-embossed the feet by loading the stamp first with Versamark & then with the Mustard Seed ink - use clear EP over top & you can easily customize your embossing to any colour of ink you have. I cut the yellow panel to size, rounded the corners, added the washi tape, and then embossed - washi tape holds embossing SO nicely. The double embossing fits in perfectly with this week's Crafty Creations Challenge, which closes tonight :) 

Glitter, shine, and look how crisp the embossing is on the washi tape! 

Here's my sketch:

Wait until you see the beauties my teammates created with my mats! Absolutely stunning cards! Make sure you leave them some love:


This sketch is open until next Sunday, March 31st. And, did you know - if you 'like' Tuesday Morning Sketches on Facebook, you can have access to the sketch the evening before it goes live?? 

I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with! 
xoxo,
Jessi
