Hi all!  Long time, no see ;)  I've just been busy with life and work, you know how it goes!  Anywho, here's a card I made using the previous Color Throwdown Challenge colors.  I inked up the MFT Garden Flourish BG stamp with a few Ranger Distress Inks, spritzed it lightly with water, then stamped it on shimmer card stock.  The sentiment is from an older MFT set.  The scallops were done using an element from the Blueprints 9 dies.

Masculine birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using the MFTWSC262 sketch.  I watercolored the background with Blu Raspberry, Cornflower and Lavender Fields inks.  I staggered the thin strip of lines from the Desert Bouquet set then embossed them with gold EP.  I cut out some stars out of silver foil paper using my Stacking Stars dies .  The 'happy' die-namic was cut out of black licorice card stock 3 times then layered somewhat offset.  'Birthday' is from a retired MFT set.  The card base is steel blue card stock.

May all your birthday wishes come true

Hi all!  I hope 2016 is being good to everyone so far :D  I'm a New Year's baby, so I always start it off  right, I guess you could say!  This card is inspired by my talented crafty friend, Marcie Sharp and the card on her post HERE.   Because I was making this with the latest ColourQ challenge in mind, I went with soft teal-ish blues and embossed the leaves in gold EP.  The flowers and leaves are from the MFT Desert Bouquet set and the sentiment is from their BB Birthday Bears set.  The card measure 4.25 x 4.25.

Don't forget to be awesome!

Hi all!  Am I the only one that can't believe 2016 is just days away??!?  Crazy!  I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season and spending it with those you love.  This is possibly my last card for this year so I thought I'd make it a little reminder for all of us as we head into the new year - don't forget to be awesome!  :D  The flowers are from the Waffle Flower set, DT Mix and the sentiment is from their In Every Way stamp set.  I inked the flowers and leaves with my Zig pens then stamped them onto watercolor paper.  Once they were all stamped, I spritzed them with water.  Well, I spritzed them a bit too much and lost most of the outlines of the stamps, so I inked them again and stamped them again where I had originally.  Pretty happy with the end result ;)  I added some clear sequins to the flower centers.  The card base is MFT's Gravel Gray.  I stamped and embossed the Garden Flourish BG stamp with silver pearl EP.  I love that embossing powder because it kind of takes on the color of whatever it's embossed over.  

Thanks for stopping by and in case I don't 'see' y'all until next year *wink*, Have a Safe and Blessed New Year!  And oh yea, don't forget to be awesome!

Some people are worth melting for

Hi all!  Here's a sweet little card using the newly released TAWS set called Melt Your Heart Out.  How CUTE, right?!!?  This image is so easy to color - I used my Zig pens and also added Frosted Lace Stickles to him for some sparkle.  The sketch is from the FMS217.

Thanks for stopping by!  The TAWS Liquidation sale is still going on but time is running out so get over there quick before it's too late!!!
