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

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all!  I'm so happy it's Wednesday already!  This week has felt looong!  We have a new challenge for you on The Card Concept Challenge Blog!  I've used the MFT Bitty Bears on my tag/card.  I believe the scalloped border is retired, as is the Woodgrain background stamp.  The tag was cut using an element from Blueprints 13.

Hello shaker

Hi all!  We're shaking things up on the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog!  I embossed the Modern Petals image with white embossing powder then sponged over the center with sour apple ink and the edges with lush lagoon ink.  The sentiment is from a recently retired CAS set.  Shaker cards are so fun, I really need to make more of them!  Don't forget to play along with us for your chance to WIN! :D

Happy Birthday!

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.

It's Time to Party

HI all!  So one of my absolute favorite crafting companies, My Favorite Things, is having a MEGA contest!  I created this card for the Clean And Simple category.  This bear knows how to decorate for a party :D  Lots of masking of balloons but I just love it!  The balloons are from the retired Panda set.  I couldn't pass up the BB Bitty Bears stamp set from the latest release.  I added two extra balloons for him to hold ;)  The sentiment is also from that set.  The cool 'floor' he's standing on was cut out with one of the Blueprints elements and is from the Black & White Basics paper pack.  Everything was colored with Copic Markers.  A trio of sequins finish it off.

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all!  It's time to get the challenges started up over on The Card Concept Blog!  This week, we have a beautiful picture to inspire you - check it out on the TCC Blog HERE!  I was inspired by the pretty pink flowers and that distressed wood!  I used the MFT set Funky Flowers.  I colored them with Copics.   I stamped an older MFT Woodgrain background stamp with kraft ink onto natural card stock.   The sentiment was inked with hot fudge ink and is from the LJD Geometric Greenery set.  I curved it to match the pierced circle STAX (now retired).

Celebrate!

Hi all!  Here's my spin on the sketch challenge MFTWSC348.  I used 3 different Ranger Oxide Inks to create a cool watercolored background then used the Celebrate Speech Bubble die to cut it out.  I used the same three inks to sponge the background, then adhered the die over the top with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from an older set and is embossed with white ep and was cut out using an older Blueprints element.

Make Waves

Hi all!  First let me send out a prayer to all of those dealing with the aftermath of Harvey.  I have family in Louisiana and lots of friends in the Katy/Houston area and it is just breaking my heart to see what they're having to deal with.  Praying the rain stops and the water recedes quickly!

Ok, here's a card I made using the Honey Bee Stamps Ocean Bliss set.  I colored her with Copics then fussy cut her.  The background was created by adhering the hexagon shaped pieces from the Hexagon Cover Plate to the card base.  I love the texture it adds!  I added a few sequins and a sentiment from the Mermaid Song set to finish it off.

CAS-ual Fridays Blog Challenge

Hi all!  It's time for a NEW Cas-ual Fridays Blog Challenge!  This one is nice and simple - to use kraft and white on your project.  I created a background using a flower from the Mon Ami stamp set, then layered a sentiment from the So Pretty stamp set over it.  I used my Mini Misti when stamping the sentiment because I wanted it nice and bold, so I inked it up twice.  I just eye-balled the flowers when lining them up, though ;)

Happy Flowery Birthday

Hi all!  I'm here with a very feminine birthday card using the Honey Bee Stamps set, Country Blooms.  I randomly stamped the flowers onto watercolor paper then embossed them with white embossing powder.  I colored them with my Zig pens, blending with water and a paint brush.  I then added some silver cord behind the sentiment from the Happy Everything stamp set.  I added the yellow background to make it work for the CTD457.

Bold Thanks

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the MFT Camp Create Day 3:  Background Bonanza.  I used the Framework stencil to sponge on two different blue inks (blueberry around edges, Blu Raspberry in the middle) onto smooth white card stock.  I then offset the stencil just a bit, and added a third blue ink - Tropical Teal - and sponged it again.  I like the shadow effect it created!  I then used a retired 'Thanks' die to cut out the background layer I had created, as well as the card base.  I cut it out 5 times, then adhered it inside the card so when you open it, you can still see it.  The stamped sentiment is from the Grateful For You stamp set that I embossed with white embossing powder onto black licorice card stock.  I added a few clear sequins as an extra detail.
