The Card Concept Challenge Time

Hi all!  Well, I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I am sure ready for Friday to get here...  Geez Louise, what a week already!  Question - what laptop do you prefer?  Seriously thinking it's time for a new one.  This Mac is slooooooowwwwwww.   Anyway - Happy Hump Day!  Back at it with our last challenge of this year (what in the WORLD?!) over on The Card Concept Blog.  I was inspired by the great color combo in the inspiration picture, as well as that pretty twine and the hand lettering on the packages.  I colored up one of those sweet MFT Bitty Bears with old Stampin' Up watercolor pencils on kraft paper.  The sentiment is also from that set.  And can I add how frustrating it is that it gets dark so early.  I had to work hard to get these pics (I only like taking pics in natural light), lol!



Thanks for stopping by!

CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge Time!

Hi all!  OMG it's December!  GAH!  I sure hope y'all are more prepared for the holidays than I currently am, Geez Louise...  Lol, it'll be fine.  Everything is fine!  HA!  Well, it's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge.  Bring on the winter blues!  I stamped lots of the images from Bring on the Snowflakes onto my Cornflower blue card base. A few are even embossed.  I stamped that big, beautiful sentiment from the Merry set in Nightshift Blue and die-cut it with a circle die.  The smaller snowflakes around the sentiment are from the Merry set, as well.  A few glittery gumdrops add a finishing touch.  This also fits the FMS315 sketch.

Let's Celebrate

Hi all!  I made this for the current MFT Color Challenge 82.  I used one of the Handwritten Happiness sentiments for the background.  'Happy Birthday' is from another MFT set, but can't remember which, lol...  :)    I embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added some matching YNS gumdrops.

Warmest Yeti Wishes

Hi all!  Here's my take on the latest MFTWSC360 sketch.  These Yetis will always be a favorite of mine.  :)  I colored him with Copics and added glossy accents to his cup (looks like white dots in the pic - so weird).  I stamped 'Be Merry' from the Snow Globe sentiments set in Sno Cone ink on Blu Raspberry card stock.  I then embossed 'Warmest Wishes' from the same set in white.  The 'snowflakes' above the Yeti's head are from the Santa's Elves set which I stamped with Grout Gray ink onto Grout Gray card stock that I cut out with my A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX.  The card base is Lavender Fields.

Happy Outer Space Birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the MFTWSC359 sketch.  It's my first card using the super cute BB Space Explorer set.  :)   The background was created with Ranger Distress Oxide inks - so fun to make!  I added glossy accents to the face cover of his helmet, which you can see better in the second picture.  The sentiment is from the BB Bitty Bears set and is embossed with white embossing powder.

CAS-ual Stamps Friday Challenge

Hi all!  I hope this week went by as fast for you as it did for me!  And that means it's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  I adore this Pretty Posies stamp set!  The sentiment is from as retired CAS-ual Fridays set.  I did a very loose watercoloring of the flowers and leaves with distress inks on watercolor paper.  I added glossy accents to the flower centers.  The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder.




Be sure to play along for your chance to WIN a gift certificate to the CAS-ual Fridays store!  :D
