MFTWSC185, Curtain Call - Have a sweet day!

Hi all!  Here's a card using the MFTWSC185 and the Anything Goes Curtain Call Challenge!  I inked up the cupcake and one of the sentiment's from the new BB Sweet Birthday Wishes set.  The cupcake was cut out using the matching die-namics.  I colored it with Copics then added some stickles and bit o' bling.  I used my diagonal stencil to create the striped background with some grout gray ink.  I'm so hooked on using different die-namics and blueprints for embossing rather than cutting, which is how I got those scored lines and stitching around the sentiment (with one of the Blueprints 1 elements).  I also used some elements from Blueprints 6 and Blueprints 13.  The card stock colors I used are grout gray, Sno Cone, Blu Raspberry, smooth white and pink lemonade.

Nothing but blue skies ahead

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for two challenges over on Splitcoaststampers!  Today's technique challenge (by my old stamping friend, Judy!) was scoring (hence the criss-crossing trio of scores lines) and the CAS (Clean And Simple) challenge was "a day at the beach".  There are lots of things that just scream 'beach!' and I think palm trees is one of them.  I love, LOVE the beach!!!  I paper pieced the entire palm tree from an old There She Goes set (by Torico, who now designs for MFT).  The sentiment is from the Blue Skies Ahead set, which I stamped in kraft ink and cut out with the pierced circle from Blueprints 3.  The card base is Blu Raspberry.

DS160, CQC250, You make every day a happy one

Hi all!  Here's my take on the latest Deconstructed Sketch 160 and the Colour Q challenge 250.  I loved them both, so I thought they would make a great combo!  The sentiment is from the Complimentary Greetings set.  The flowers, leaves and little stitched flag are all from the Blueprints 12.  I used orange fizz, sour apple and Blu raspberry card stocks, then added some enamel dots as the flower centers.  I also added a trio of black enamel dots just like the sketch showed (one is on the black and white polka dotted DP, so you may not be able to spot it).  The stamping on the leaves was from a leftover piece from a previous project (I have a hard time parting with scraps!).  I cut out two of each flower, layered them, then curled the top petals for dimension.

CTS85, CTD301, Hello

Hi all!  Here's my Clean And Simple (CAS) take on the CTS85 along with the CTD301 challenges.  The small images you see on the grout gray card base (far left) and the larger Sno Cone damask are from the MPD Damask Designs set.  The sentiment, stamped in kraft ink, is from a now retired MFT set, I believe and was cut out using one of the Blueprints 13 elements.  The sweet tooth layer and coral dp layer are both up on foam adhesives for dimension.  I added some small white sequins for a little something extra.

SPDSS06, Love you bunches

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using a set from SugarPea Designs called Love You Bunches.  I just couldn't pass up this sweet set!  The sketch is from the SPDSS06 over on the SugarPea Designs blog. I colored her up with Copics then used two of my small cloud die-namics to create masks then sponged on some Sno Cone sky.  I ordered some new dp a couple of weeks ago and thought it was about time I cut into it!  ;)  Some yellow twill and brads add the finishing details.  Don't you love the font on that sentiment??!!!

YNS Fun Friday - Sailor Birthday

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  It's time for a new Your Next Stamp Fun Friday Challenge!  I decided to go with the sketch challenge and used this cute Little Sailor Boy digital stamp.  I colored him with Copics, then fussy cut him and popped him up on rolled up glue dots.  I used a couple of my star die-namics to cut out parts of the dp, then filled them with navy blue stars.  A few brads, thread and an anchor add the finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to play along for a chance to WIN!
