Tuesday Morning Sketch 246

I've had some cool CTMH stamps called Mothers Day for a few weeks and have been playing with them a bit.  I did learn to use Momento ink instead of my Palette Hybrids in order to get a good crisp image.  I also just got in my new Elegant Ovals Spellbinders dies Tuesday and wanted to play with them, too.

This layout is from Tuesday Morning Sketches 246  that was posted last Tuesday.  I colored my ribbons with coordinating Copic markers and used the CTMH paper piecing ruler for the scallops on the ends of the card.  That ruler is pretty cool!

This die needs a bit of shimming and I still didn't get all the itty bitty pieces cut out on the sides. Quite noticeable in the first photo. I'll have to do more playing with these dies to get the right "sandwich" in my Big Shot. I'm still waiting on the Spellbinder's Tool 'n One that's on backorder and not due to ship until sometime next month.

Pop on over to Tuesday Morning and check out the fun inspiration projects and the challengers! And don't be shocked that this is my 2nd post today!  I plan on getting some more cards done today for next week's posts.

Nice! I like the oval die, hope you find the right sandwich. I've got several like that, that I'm still playing with!

Love the stamp - and the new die is awesome but I "hate" to have to poke all the little snippets of cs out too. There is a new tool out there that is supposed to help with that. I havenot seen the CTMH ruler that you used but I'm thinking I like it. Great Moms day card.

Beautiful card!! I love the silhouette stamp and that fancy die!! Poking all the pieces out is such pain, isn't it??!?
Thanks for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
