Color Throwdown #461 featuring Crazy Dogs stamp set


Hey All,
It has been a while since my last post and I apologize. My MacBook Pro is causing me to go crazy cause the screen is not working. I am using a Windows laptop till I can try to fix it and I am just not used to it.
I do tech support for cellphones as my day job and have patience all day. When it comes to me and a computer....I have none!

Anywho... here is my submission for this weeks Color Throwdown #461.
The colors this week were Purple, Green, Yellow and Orange. Those colors scream Halloween to me.



I used a Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles Stencil and ink blened with Distress Inks, I used Carved Pumpkin , Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed and Lucky Clover.

All of the Elements and Sentiment are from the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Dogs, Crazy Things and Crazy Talk Stamp Sets. I colored all the images with the same Distress Ink Color plus Black Soot.

Thank you so much for coming by and see you next time!!

MFT Chinese Takeout and Good Fortune Birthday Card



Welcome back!

I can now show this birthday card I made for my awesome disinter in laws birthday!

Oh man MFT just made such a great release when came out with this set and the Sushi date one back in March.
I even won a $25 voucher from MFT as part of the release  and of course I got those sets and dies.

I did not come up with this design but I was inspired by one of the inspiration cards on their site made by Debbie Olsen.
I just loved the layout she chose with the blue background. 



I used Distress Ink  in Tumbled Glass and blended onto some Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

I used Antique Linen and Tea Dye for the fortune cookies and
Hickory Smoke for the handle of the box. I also used Antique Linen for the chopsticks.

I stamped the Pagoda and Enjoy with Memento Dew Drop Ink in Lady bug form the Good Fortune stamp set. I  then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to make them shiny.

I used some patten paper in my stash as the background and popped onto a card base made from some Neenah 120lb card stock.




I used the Sushi Date stamp set for the sentiment and the soy sauce bottle which i colored using Spectrum Noir markers.

I stamped the same pagoda onto the envelope in the Lady Bug ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

MFT Card Challenge Sketch #345 using Friends Forever


Welcome Back!

I am doing another week in the My Favorite Things Card Challenge #345

It was a fun sketch and couldn't not participate in it. 

Sketch Challenge 345 #mftstamps

When I saw the sketch I knew I had to do a shaker card. 


I used some pattern paper in my stash for that strip on the left. I then used some green card stock and a houndstooth embossing folder to create the background. 

The shaker is filled with random sequins and chunky glitter. 

I used my SSS stitched circle dies to create the bit to make a frame for the shaker winder. 

I used Distress Oxide Ink to color in the bear from the MFT Forever stamp set and then fussy cut it out. 

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is white embossed onto some black card stock. 

Thank you so much for coming by to check out my submission. 

I hope to see you next week!

MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge using Otterly Love You Stamp and Die Set


Hello Again!

I have a new Challenge Today. 
I love My Favorite Things Stamps and Dies and decided to try my hand at their card sketch challenge. 


Here is the Sketch for this Weeks Challenge #344

Sketch Challenge 344 #mftstamps
I made the banner style shape by cutting on my trimmer and using the stich die in the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 13 set.  

I ink blended Salty Ocean and Broken China Oxide Inks and then used a Distress Sprayer to add the water for a ocean like background. I then sprayed some Glimmer Mist on it to add some sparkle. 


The images and sentiment come from the MFT Otterly Love You Stamp and Die set.


 I colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.  The sentiment was stamped onto some random pattern paper I had and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 

After everything was assembled I used some glossy accents on the otter noses and to make some bubbles for the fish. 

Thank you for coming by and I will see you next time!

Color Throwdown #454 using Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs and Crazy Talk




Happy Wednesday!

Todays Color Throwdown Challenge #454 hit close to home. The inspiration pic was of a Jack Russell. 


My little pup Luna is a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix so I had to make a card featuring her. 





The colors this week are Green, Kraft and White. 

Since I knew I was doing Luna , I did her on the obvious of grass to incorporate the green. 
I blended Lucky Clover Distress Oxide and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks  
and then die cut using the MFT Die-namics Grassy Fields. 

I wanted clouds but didn't want to add in blue so I just die cut out of some white card stock  using the Avery Elle  Pierced Clouds Dies.


I used the Crazy Talk stamp set to add the sentiment into one of the clouds and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. 

I colored Luna using Spectrum Noir Markers and then added some glossy accents onto the eyes and the tag on her collar. I then attached it to a white card base. 

Thank you so much for joining me today and I will see you next week for another Challenge!

Hard to see in the pics but put some Glossy Accents onto the party hat to add some dimension and shine.
