Your Next Stamp Fun Friday Challenge and SACC - Sent with Love

Hi all!  Here's my card for the YNS Fun Friday challenge (I used the inspiration photo) and the Sister Act Card Challenge.  I created a quilted look for the background based on the recent Curtain Call Cozy Quilt challenge (which I just missed).  This sweet girl is a YNS digi called Tobi Watering Roses.  I colored her with copics then cut her out using my circle STAX.  The cool background was made using the Fishnet Cover-up.  I left most of the jellybean green card stock in place, then popped out some of the pieces and replaced them with various pieces of designer paper for the 'quilted' look.  The easiest way I found to do this was by gluing the jellybean card stock and pieces I wanted to stay in place to a thin piece of copy paper.  Then I adhered the designer paper one by one until I filled up all the spots I had left open.  I used a mini rolled rose and a bit of leafy flourish to mimic the roses in the image.  The sentiment is from an MFT set.  A little bling adds the finishing details.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And as always, be sure to play along for YOUR chance to WIN!  ;)

MFTWSC164 - Happy Birthday

Hi all!  Here's my Clean And Simple card using the latest MFTWSC164 sketch and also for current Color Palette challenge.  I used the DC Party Balloons set and die-namics.  On the kraft frame and blu raspberry fishtail flag STAX layer, I also used the BG Sheet Music background cling rubber stamp.  The label die is from the now retired (I believe) On the Move set and is up on pop dots.  I used an Oval STAX to cut out the middle.  The larger blu raspberry layer was cut out with the Blueprints 6.  The sentiment is from another MFT set but I can't find it on the site.  I attached them to the black 'balloon strings' so it looks like they're waving in the air.  ;)

MFTWSC162 - Another Hello

Hi all!  Here's my card for last week's MFTWSC162 using the MPD Contemporary Roses set.  I couldn't pass up this awesome sketch!  I used lemon drop and cotton candy and razzle berry inks.  For the yellow roses, I inked up the larger image then used the stamping off technique, then stamped the smaller outline image fully inked so that it was darker.  I used my beloved pierced circle STAX to cut out the image.  I stamped "Hello" from the same set onto vellum and attached it with brads.  I also used my fishtail flag STAX and square STAX.  You know what makes me happy?  Having cardstock handy that perfectly matches my designer paper!  In this case, jellybean green was my match made in heaven, lol!  A little piercing and some hemp thread add the finishing details.

Thanks for stopping by!

MFTWSC163 - Hello

Hi all!  Here's my take on this week's MFTWSC163 sketch using NEW MFT yumminess!!!  The card base and striped layer are grout gray cardstock.  I used grout gray ink for the DC Striped Backgrounds layer, which is popped up.  I cut out the nightshift blue panel with the larger piece from the Smart Phone die-namics, which is also where the super cute "Hello" is from - oh, how I love these die-namics and can't WAIT to use them again!  The tangy orange flower is from the Blueprints 12 die-namics.  Lovin' that corrugated flower center ;)  No flower is complete without a little leafy flourish, right?  The flourish and stitched strip (from Blueprints 1) were cut out of steel grey cardstock.  I just realized that the only stamping on this card are the stripes!  So easy to make a great card using MFT die-namics!  A few enamel dots finish out the details.

Thanks for stopping by!
