It's Time to Party

HI all!  So one of my absolute favorite crafting companies, My Favorite Things, is having a MEGA contest!  I created this card for the Clean And Simple category.  This bear knows how to decorate for a party :D  Lots of masking of balloons but I just love it!  The balloons are from the retired Panda set.  I couldn't pass up the BB Bitty Bears stamp set from the latest release.  I added two extra balloons for him to hold ;)  The sentiment is also from that set.  The cool 'floor' he's standing on was cut out with one of the Blueprints elements and is from the Black & White Basics paper pack.  Everything was colored with Copic Markers.  A trio of sequins finish it off.

So glad to call you friend

Hi all!  i'm here with a card I made for the MFTWSC349.  I masked a few of the owls from the For Owl You Do stamp set, then fussy cut them.  The embossed sentiment is also from that set.  I cut it out with the pierced Fishtail Flag STAX.  I stamped the cement gray card stock with a retired MFT BG stamp with grout gray ink.

The Card Concept Challenge Time!

Hi all!  It's time to get the challenges started up over on The Card Concept Blog!  This week, we have a beautiful picture to inspire you - check it out on the TCC Blog HERE!  I was inspired by the pretty pink flowers and that distressed wood!  I used the MFT set Funky Flowers.  I colored them with Copics.   I stamped an older MFT Woodgrain background stamp with kraft ink onto natural card stock.   The sentiment was inked with hot fudge ink and is from the LJD Geometric Greenery set.  I curved it to match the pierced circle STAX (now retired).

Celebrate!

Hi all!  Here's my spin on the sketch challenge MFTWSC348.  I used 3 different Ranger Oxide Inks to create a cool watercolored background then used the Celebrate Speech Bubble die to cut it out.  I used the same three inks to sponge the background, then adhered the die over the top with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from an older set and is embossed with white ep and was cut out using an older Blueprints element.

Make Waves

Hi all!  First let me send out a prayer to all of those dealing with the aftermath of Harvey.  I have family in Louisiana and lots of friends in the Katy/Houston area and it is just breaking my heart to see what they're having to deal with.  Praying the rain stops and the water recedes quickly!

Ok, here's a card I made using the Honey Bee Stamps Ocean Bliss set.  I colored her with Copics then fussy cut her.  The background was created by adhering the hexagon shaped pieces from the Hexagon Cover Plate to the card base.  I love the texture it adds!  I added a few sequins and a sentiment from the Mermaid Song set to finish it off.

CAS-ual Fridays Blog Challenge

Hi all!  It's time for a NEW Cas-ual Fridays Blog Challenge!  This one is nice and simple - to use kraft and white on your project.  I created a background using a flower from the Mon Ami stamp set, then layered a sentiment from the So Pretty stamp set over it.  I used my Mini Misti when stamping the sentiment because I wanted it nice and bold, so I inked it up twice.  I just eye-balled the flowers when lining them up, though ;)

Happy Flowery Birthday

Hi all!  I'm here with a very feminine birthday card using the Honey Bee Stamps set, Country Blooms.  I randomly stamped the flowers onto watercolor paper then embossed them with white embossing powder.  I colored them with my Zig pens, blending with water and a paint brush.  I then added some silver cord behind the sentiment from the Happy Everything stamp set.  I added the yellow background to make it work for the CTD457.

Bold Thanks

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the MFT Camp Create Day 3:  Background Bonanza.  I used the Framework stencil to sponge on two different blue inks (blueberry around edges, Blu Raspberry in the middle) onto smooth white card stock.  I then offset the stencil just a bit, and added a third blue ink - Tropical Teal - and sponged it again.  I like the shadow effect it created!  I then used a retired 'Thanks' die to cut out the background layer I had created, as well as the card base.  I cut it out 5 times, then adhered it inside the card so when you open it, you can still see it.  The stamped sentiment is from the Grateful For You stamp set that I embossed with white embossing powder onto black licorice card stock.  I added a few clear sequins as an extra detail.

Pretty in Pink

HI all!  Happy Thursday - yes, I'm posting a day late ;)   Almost Friday!!!  I have a pretty in pink Hello card for you today using the following Honey Bee Stamps products:  Lotus Blossom stamp and matching die, A2 Double Stitched Frames die, and the Hello dies.  This little stamp sure can pack a big punch when embossed!  I embossed the outer edge of my pink lemonade card base, then added a few extra around the sentiment.  I love the layered Hello dies - such a cool look!  I added a few sequins to the Lotus tucked under the 'hello'.

Happy flowery birthday

Hi all!  I'm here with some flowery-goodness using the Honey Bee Stamps set, Country Blooms.  I'm kinda totally obsessed with this set.  ;)  I colored them with Copics then used the matching dies to cut everything out.  I used the smallest of the Hexagon Layering Background Stencils to sponge in some color on the layer directly behind the flowers and sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Happy Everything stamp set - I loooove the mix of fonts!

You are Fintastic

Hi all!  Well, we're halfway through the week - we can DO this!  ;)

So I have to say that this has to be in my top 20, maybe top 10, favorite cards that I've ever made!  It makes me so happy when I get an idea and the finished project turns out better than imagined.  The new Honey Bee Stamps set, Mermaid Song, is a large set with so many possibilities!  This mermaid is a good size, perfect for taking center stage of any card!  I colored her with Copics then fussy cut her and layered her over a smooth white card base that I had sponged with two blue inks, Blu Raspberry and Blueberry, and spritzed with water.  I curved the 'fintastic' sentiment for more interest.
