The Card Concept Challenge Time

Hi all!  Well, I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I am sure ready for Friday to get here...  Geez Louise, what a week already!  Question - what laptop do you prefer?  Seriously thinking it's time for a new one.  This Mac is slooooooowwwwwww.   Anyway - Happy Hump Day!  Back at it with our last challenge of this year (what in the WORLD?!) over on The Card Concept Blog.  I was inspired by the great color combo in the inspiration picture, as well as that pretty twine and the hand lettering on the packages.  I colored up one of those sweet MFT Bitty Bears with old Stampin' Up watercolor pencils on kraft paper.  The sentiment is also from that set.  And can I add how frustrating it is that it gets dark so early.  I had to work hard to get these pics (I only like taking pics in natural light), lol!

CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge Time!

Hi all!  OMG it's December!  GAH!  I sure hope y'all are more prepared for the holidays than I currently am, Geez Louise...  Lol, it'll be fine.  Everything is fine!  HA!  Well, it's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge.  Bring on the winter blues!  I stamped lots of the images from Bring on the Snowflakes onto my Cornflower blue card base. A few are even embossed.  I stamped that big, beautiful sentiment from the Merry set in Nightshift Blue and die-cut it with a circle die.  The smaller snowflakes around the sentiment are from the Merry set, as well.  A few glittery gumdrops add a finishing touch.  This also fits the FMS315 sketch.

Let's Celebrate

Hi all!  I made this for the current MFT Color Challenge 82.  I used one of the Handwritten Happiness sentiments for the background.  'Happy Birthday' is from another MFT set, but can't remember which, lol...  :)    I embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added some matching YNS gumdrops.

Warmest Yeti Wishes

Hi all!  Here's my take on the latest MFTWSC360 sketch.  These Yetis will always be a favorite of mine.  :)  I colored him with Copics and added glossy accents to his cup (looks like white dots in the pic - so weird).  I stamped 'Be Merry' from the Snow Globe sentiments set in Sno Cone ink on Blu Raspberry card stock.  I then embossed 'Warmest Wishes' from the same set in white.  The 'snowflakes' above the Yeti's head are from the Santa's Elves set which I stamped with Grout Gray ink onto Grout Gray card stock that I cut out with my A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX.  The card base is Lavender Fields.

Happy Outer Space Birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the MFTWSC359 sketch.  It's my first card using the super cute BB Space Explorer set.  :)   The background was created with Ranger Distress Oxide inks - so fun to make!  I added glossy accents to the face cover of his helmet, which you can see better in the second picture.  The sentiment is from the BB Bitty Bears set and is embossed with white embossing powder.

Celebrate You

Hi all!  I did a little crafting just for fun using some new Concord & 9th stamps and dies!  Their Blooms Fill-In stamp set was irresistible!  I embossed the 'You' from the All About You die set with gold embossing powder.  'Celebrate' is from the same die set and was cut out three times then layered.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Time!

Hi all!  Welcome to a new challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog!  This challenge is to create anything but a card, so I made two tags!  I sponged the tags with Distress Oxide inks, then spritzed them with water.  The thinking of you sentiment is from the So Pretty stamp set.  The flowers and other sentiment are from a retired set.  Both sentiments are embossed with white embossing powder.

Happy Pawlidays

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using new goodies from MFT (couldn't resist those pups!) for the MFTWSC356.  I sponged the background with peach bellini and tickled pink inks, then used Copic markers to add some dots, then spritzed with water for even more dimension.  I masked the tree while doing all that sponging and spritzing :)  The Pup and sentiment are up on foam adhesive.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Time!

Hi all!  Happy Friday and welcome to a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  The challenge is all about PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness!  Sooo, yes, I used the Mon Ami stamp set again, but it is just SO Pretty!  I did a cool technique this time!  First I embossed the larger flower with gold embossing powder onto smooth white card stock.  Next, I sponged on Razzleberry ink, keeping it darker on the edges, lighter in the middle.  Then I took a paintbrush, dipped it water, then 'colored' in the petals, essentially removing the ink just a bit.  Next I'll try with watercolor paper, but I love the result!  I layered the sentiment then added gold enamel dots.

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all!  It's time for a new challenge over on The Card Concept Blog!  I really love the pop of color in the inspiration picture!  I colored some leaved from the MFT Geometric Greenery stamp set and popped them up behind the Grateful die-namic.   I wanted the sentiment die to stand out a bit more, so I sponged the bottom part of it with chocolate brown ink.  The Quilt Square cover-up makes a great background.



We hope you'll play along with us!  :D

Hello shaker

Hi all!  Yes, back to back posts!  That's what ya gotta do when there's a contest deadline!  Here's my card for the Coloring Virtuoso Category in the MFT contest!  I'm worried I should've put it in the Clean & Simple Genius category but it is what it is ;)  I love the color combo!  The leaves from Funky Flowers are embossed on the Cement Gray card stock.  The flowers were colored with Copics.    The sentiment is from the Up in the Air set.

You're Great!

Hi all!  Here's my Innovation Master Challenge Card for the MFT contest!  This is a Z-Fold card.  The first pick is of it completely open and flat.  Lots of sponging and coloring with Copics.  All MFT card stock and images, of course!!!


This pic show it closed. (well, somewhat)  ;)  This would be what you would see when you take it out of an envelope.


Here, part of it is laying on my little card stand.
