The Card Concept challenge time!

Hi all!  I'm a day late, but here it is - my card for the latest The Card Concept challenge!  Such a pretty picture!  And you would've thought I would take the flower-route because of the pic, but I was inspired by the sweet treats.  Plus these  Birthday Chicks were calling me.  :)  Everything was colored with Copic markers. I layered a couple of the stitched tag-corner square STAX to create the frame for the chicks.




We would love for you to play along with us!

I'm just a little obsessed with this set.  ;)  The background was created by stamping with distress inks then using water to give a messy watercolored look. The flowers were colored with Copic markers.

A Monster Birthday

HI all!  Here's my card for the latest MFTWSC377 sketch using the Monster Sized stamp set.  These guys are super fun to color!  I used my Copics and a pointillism technique for interest and texture.  I sponged on some coordinating distress inks behind the general are of where I planned to adhere each monster, then spritzed with water.  The word dies are from the Blueprints 26.  I cut out 'birthday' from the black and white basics paper pad.  I added the clear YNS gumdrops because of a little oops on the paper - I'm sure you've heard before, mistakes are just opportunities to embellish! :D

Happy Viking Birthday

Hi all!  Just poppin' in with a card I made for the latest MFTWSC376 using this cool guy, BB Viking stamp.  I colored him with my Copics, then layered him over a little scene I created using the Trees in the Forest die-namics and the Stitched Valley die-namics.  The sentiment is from the Bitty Bears set.  I also used up some patterned paper I've been ignoring.  :)

The Card Concept Challenge time!

Hi all!  Yay for being halfway through the week!  We have a new inspiration pic for you on The Card Concept Challenge blog - and it's all about green!  I used distress inks to create a cool top layer then used the Birch Press Designs Fiori plate A to cut it out.  I used another of the Birch Press dies to layer underneath then adhered them both to a gumdrop green card base. The sentiment and 'birthday' die are from the BPD Make a Statement stamp set with matching dies. I added a few sparkly YNS gumdrops, too.  :)



We would love for you to play along with us!

A flowery thank you

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the latest MFTWSC373 challenge.  I used one of my favorite flower sets, Funky Flowers, along with a sentiment from Geometric Greenery.  I created the background using Copic markers and added texture using the blending solution ala Kathy Racoosin.  Yes, I was totally trying to channel her especially since I was fortunate enough to attend one of her Color Challenge Classes recently! The flowers were also colored with Copics, a bit of colored pencils and accented with a white gel pen.

I'd be lost without you

Hi all!  There was a post by MFT guest designer, Rachel, that inspired me to finally step out of my comfort zone and try a different type of card.  This one may be called a standing pop up card, but I'm not sure.  It was SO fun to make!  I'll need more practice on these because this one is not perfect but I love it regardless :)  I used the MFT Town Bear stamp set, along with a sentiment from the Grateful sentiment set.  The 'road' was created by using an element from an older Blueprints die set. I used a few inks and the Cloud stencil for the sky.  All images were colored with Copics.

The Card Concept Challenge Blog

Hi all!  It's time for a new challenge on The Card Concept Challenge Blog. The inspiration pic is so pretty and girly!  I used the MFT More Rustic Flowers set to stamp flowers to create the background.  The sentiment is from the Handwritten Happiness stamp set.  I used a few MFT die-namics for the sentiment and background layers.  And to make it even more 'girly', I added some clear sequins.




We hope you'll play along with us!
