MFT Sketch Challenge Guest Designer - MFTWSC287

Hi all!  Here is my last card as MFT's Sketch Challenge Guest Designer.  I sure do love MFT and am sad this month as their guest designer is over but also so VERY grateful that I had this opportunity!  :)  Thank you, ladies, MWAH!!!  You know I love y'all!  Here's my card for MFTWSC287 using the new PI Fun in the Sun stamp set and die-namics.  I colored her with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment onto one of the Blueprints 29 elements then added a heart, also from Blueprints 29.  The Fresh Squeezed Chevron designer paper was cut out using the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX.  The card base is Lemon Drop.

MFT Sketch Challenge Guest Designer - MFTWSC286

Hi all!  Welcome to another weekly MFT Sketch Challenge!  For this week's challenge I used lots of new goodies!  The background was created using the Funky Flower set that I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with my Zig pens then die cut it with an element from Blueprints 29.  I then used the 'grateful' die-namic from the Grateful for You set to cut out part of the background (and also from smooth white card stock for more depth), then layered it over the black licorice card stock that was cut out using the Pierced Fishtail Flag STAX.  There's also a layer of glossy accents over the 'grateful' die cut.  I stamped the leaves again on the Pierced Circle STAX Sno-cone layer in Sno Cone ink, then stamped 'for you' which is also from the Grateful for You stamp set.  The card base is smooth white card stock - my favorite white card stock!

Thanks for stopping by!  Swing over to the MFT Sketch Challenge Blog and be prepared to be blown away by the design team!

MFT Sketch Guest Designer - MFTWSC285 - Ham it up!

Hi all!  Here's my card for this week's My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge MFTWSC285.  I couldn't resist using this piggie from the new BB Hog Heaven stamp set.  I colored him with Copics then cut him out with the matching dies.  The blue breeze layer and sentiment were cut out with elements from the new Blueprints 29.  The hills were stamped with the fine check background stamp then die cut  using the Stitched Valley die-namics.  The card base is grout gray card stock.  I sponged the edges of the hills and blue breeze layers to add depth.

Thanks for stopping by!  And enjoy more inspiration over on the MFT Card Challenges Blog!

MFT Sketch Guest Designer - I kinda like you

*please scroll down for my Lil Inker Designs New Release blog hop post*

Hi all!  Here's my take on this week's MFTWSC284 sketch!   I couldn't resist these Snuggle Bunnies when they came out.  I colored these cuties with Copics then fussy cut them.  I used the Chunky Herringbone stencil and sponged some sweet tooth pigment ink onto the safety orange card base.  I added a strip of dp from the Chevron paper pack and layered the Square STAX and images over it.  The sentiment was stamped on some natural card stock that was cut out with an element from the newly released Blueprints 29 - which is becoming a fast favorite of mine!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head over to the MFT Card Challenges blog for some major inspiration with the latest sketch!

Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop - Day 3!

Hi all!  Welcome to the final day of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release blog hop!  For today's card I used the Mirror Mirror stamp set and matching dies, along with the Sassy Script stamp set to spell out 'gorgeous'.  Isn't that font Gorgeous???!!  I used a piece of dp form the Tribal Chic paper pack with the  Quilted Stitched Pattern cover up die for the background.  How cool is that mirrored paper (also available in the store FREE for a limited time when you order the Mirror Mirror stamps and dies!)?

Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Hi all!  Welcome to day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop!  I hope you enjoyed Day 1 yesterday :-)  Today I'm featuring the Perfect Pair dies that match the previously released Perfect Pairs stamp set.  How FUN is this set?!!?  And yay for matching dies!  I had to go with the PB & J couple and added a little watercoloring behind them to match.  I used one of the Fringe Scalloped Squares dies to cut out the watercolor paper.  The sentiment, also from the set, was cut out using an element of the Warm Welcome dies.  So stinkin' cute, if you ask me!  This card measures 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.

Lil Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop - Day 1

Hi all!  Welcome to the LID New Release Blog Hop - Day 1!  We have so much to show you this month so I'll get right to it!

I have two pretty Clean And Simple cards for you today.  The first up uses the Hello Beautiful stamp set.  I used the one of the dies from the new Dual Dotted Borders die set for that curved edge.  I curved a sentiment from the stamp set to follow the curve, then stamped that pretty little bird.  I layered one of the Tribal Chic patterned papers under the curved border.  A few clear sequins finish it up.

Next up is a card I made using the Warm Welcome stamp set and matching dies.  I stamped the wreath and some flowers and leaves directly onto the card base.  I then used the matching dies to cut out the wreath and more flowers and leaves then layered them.  The sentiment is also a part of the stamp set - Love!

MFT Card Challenges - June Sketch Guest Designer!

Hi all!  I'm so very Excited to be the guest designer for the Sketch Challenge over on the MFT Card Challenges Blog this month!  Today's sketch is a classic in my book!  I decided to emboss a sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments set onto some black licorice card stock that was cut out using the Inside & Out diagonal stitched rectangle STAX.  The watercolored paper was cut out using an element from the Blueprints 20 (currently out of stock AND one of my Favorite Blueprints!) then the Oval STAX 1 was used to cut out the opening for the sentiment.  I added a few clear sequins then layered everything over the Razzle Berry card base.

Hop on over to the MFT Card Challenge Blog for more inspiration using this sketch!
