The Card Concept Challenge Time! #100!!!

Hi all! It's time for a new challenge over on The Card Concept Blog and it's number 100! We have special guests joining us - so exciting! I asked my sweet crafty friend Brianna to join me in this challenge. I used the Lil Inker Designs Dual Stitched Pumpkin die for this card. I smudged some versamark ink on the bottom and then embossed with gold embossing powder. I colored the stem and created the grooves in the pumpkin with Copic markers. The flowers/vines and sentiment are also from Lil Inker Designs. The wood grain background stamp is from MFT.




We would love for you to play along with us!

Have a Beary Good Birthday

Hi all! I'm back with another card I made, this time using the MFT set Polar Bear Pals. This was made for their World Card Making Day challenge - ROYGBIV. I colored the bear with Copics, then used a star stencil (MFT - retired) and MFT inks for the background. I added a little shimmer with my clear Wink of Stella marker to the scarf and stars. I layered some MFT black and white patterned paper to break up all the white.

Small Card - Big Thanks

Hi all! Here's a card I made using the MFT Color Challenge #102 and their sketch challenge #405. I used the More Rustic Flowers stamp set and dies to create the main layer. I also added an extra flower with some Glossy Accents for extra dimension.  I embossed the sentiment, from the Bitty Bears set, onto black licorice card stock. The card base is Cement Gray.

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all! I'm a day late, but here is my card for the latest The Card Concept Blog Challenge. That inspiration pic is a beauty! I did a lot of watercoloring using Ranger Distress Inks as well as my Zig pens. The stamp set and sentiment (get it, 'you're a dahl! as in dahlia, the flower. Lol!) are from Hero Arts. I watercolored the background so that it mimicked the shape of the flowers I layered on top. I've watched a lot of videos lately for inspiration and was inspired by May Park and added the flecks of color.




We would love for you to play along with us!

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all!  It's time for a new challenge over on The Card Concept Challenge Blog. I loved this inspiration pic and loved even more that I had this Reverse Confetti Unicorn Wishes stamp set and dies that matched it so perfectly! I colored everything with Copics.

MFT Card Design Supterstar Contest - 3rd card!

Hi all! Here's my final card for the Innovative category of the MFT Card Design Superstar Contest. I got the idea for this one after watching THE Jennifer McGuire's video for tunnel cards. This one was SO fun to make! :) I used the Bitty Bears, Birthday Bears and Up in the Air stamp sets. The black and white patterned paper is from MFT, as well as the cotton candy and black licorice cardstock. All images were colored with Copics. I did add a little shimmer to all of the birthday hats and banners with a clear Wink of Stella pen. I curved the sentiment so it matched the banner die-namic that is in a retired Blueprints set. I also stamped some of the cardstock with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots BG stamp using ripe raspberry ink.

MFT Card Design Superstar Contest - 2nd card!

Hi all!  I'm back with another card for the MFT Card Design Superstar contest because, well, you gotta be in it to win it! FINGERS CROSSED! Here's my coloring virtuoso card using the BB Mermazing set. The small island is from the Party Like a Pirate set and the sentiment is from the Beach Buds set (it seemed fitting for this card). :)  I used several MFT inks. You can even see a few stars that I stamped in sweet tooth ink from the retired Totally Happy set. I used a white gel pen to add a bit of glisten to the water and also some dimension to her tail.

MFT Card Design Superstar Contest!

HI all!  Here's my card for the Clean And Simple category of the MFT Card Design Superstar contest. I used the Floral Fantasy background for this sympathy card.  I embossed the stamp with white embossing powder, then colored with my Zig pens, blending with water as I went. I added a twist to the card by cutting the image then adhering to acetate to create my card front. The sentiment is from Brushstroke Expressions. There are some amazing entries in ALL of the categories, so I'm SUPER nervous!

Howdy, Friend

HI all!  I had a little fun with the new MFT Saddle Up & Celebrate set. I also made this for their MFT Sketch and Color Challenges. I'm also entering this in Kathy Racoosin's Coloring Contest. I colored everything with Copics.  I used the cloud stencil and sweet tooth pigment ink for the background on the card base.

Let's Celebrate

Hi all!  I colored up this cute new PI for Kathy Rac's coloring challenge and also the MFTWSC397. I used Copics for my coloring. I curved the sentiment to match the curve of the scalloped circle die-namic (retired).  I also stamped the scalloped circle die and the Grapesicle layer with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot background.

Hello Friend

HI all!  I was one of the lucky winners of this beautiful Gina K Designs stamp set from Kathy Racoosin's The 30 Day Coloring Challenge recently. I couldn't wait to ink it up!  I stamped on a natural card base and colored the flowers with Distress Oxide Inks - they work so well on colored cardstock! Because this is a one layer card, I added a little dimension by adding glossy accents to the red flowers.

Have a Jawsome Day!

Hi all! I made another card for the MFT Summer School Classes - this one is for the Repetition challenge. I stamped the shark from the new Beach Buds stamp set then colored them with my Zig pens and some water to create my ocean scene. I love the loose watercolored look. The sentiment is embossed. I added a few clear gumdrops for fun.  :D

Life without you...

Hi all! I made another card for the MFT Summer School challenge. This one was to use primary colors.  I kept it small and simple by using them on this cutie's umbrella from the Bitty Bears stamp set. I used the cloud stencil and die-namics from an older Blueprints set for the sun to create an outside scene. The 'window' was created with one of the Blueprints 29 elements. The sentiment is from the Town Bear stamp set.

Have a delightful day

HI all! Here's a card I made for the MFT Stamps Summer School 2018 Day 1 challenge: White Space. Well, my 'white space' is kraft colored :) I used an image from the BB You Gnome Me stamp set with a sentiment from the retired Sweet Forest Friends set. I used a (retired) Pierced Circle STAX die-namic to emboss the card base then layered the image over it creating a highlight. A trio of clear sequins add a little something extra, as do the rounded corners.

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all! It's time for our last challenge of the summer over on The Card Concept Blog! I loved the gold and pinks so I embossed the Floral Fantasy BG stamp on some watercolor paper then used a few inks to swipe on some color, similar to the table card. I added a little twine behind the embossed sentiment from the Brushstroke Expressions set (retired).




We hope you'll play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by and see y'all back on The Card Concept Challenge Blog in September!

Rainbow Birthday

HI all! Here's my take on the MFTWSC389. I used the new Moroccan Mosaic Stencil and my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to create a watercolored look for my background. The 'happy' and 'birthday' dies are retired MFT. The card base is the fab Smooth White MFT card stock.  I added a few glittered YNS gumdrops around the word dies.
