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!

Birthday Card using SSS Favorite Puperoni Stamp Set




Hey guys!

I have a birthday card using the adorable
Simon Says Stamp Favorite Puperoni stamp set.



I used the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for all the coloring.
I die cut the panel using the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-namics set.

I used same pattern paper in my stash for the background and the envelope.

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


Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day!

CTD#453: Distress Oxide Birthday Card using Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy Happy stamp set


Happy Friday!

I am back from vacation and ready to do this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #453.
 Slightly jet lagged but wanted to play so bad.

This weeks colors are Pink, Yellow and Green. I was inspired by a post on the Lawn Fawn Instagram page.



I wanted to play with my Distess Oxides. The background is not quite what I was picturing but after finished I figured would be good for a man card. Yeah it has some sequins but he will just have to get over it.. it's a birthday card and needs some sparkle. 


I did the smooshing technique of putting color on the craft mat, spraying with water and smooshing the card stock into it. After each pounce I would dry with the heat tool. I used Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber and Lucky Clover Distrress Oxides. 

The sentiments are in the same distress colors and I used the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy Happy stamp set and dies. 

Thank you for coming by and see you next time!

Hope card using the SSS Hope Blooms and Tropical Leaves Stamp Sets

Welcome Back
I am off in vacation in Hawaii so I could not do a Color Throwdown
this week but figured I'd share this tropical inspired card. 

This was a fun card to stamp and watercolor.



I used the Simon Says Stamp Tropical Leaves stamp set and
stamped with Distress Inks. I knew the coverage on stamping would not be solid since Distress Inks but that's what I wanted. I stamped and then used a water brush to spread out the color.

Distress Inks Used:
Twisted Citron
Evergreen Bough 
Mowed Lawn 
Peeled Paint

I then splattered some of the same inks onto it. 

The sentiment is from the SSS Hope Blooms stamp set and white heat embossed onto some black card stock. 



The envelope is made from the same watercolor paper and I used the same colors to have it matching.

Thank you so much for coming by and I will see you next time.
