Congratulations–SSSC #216

SSSC216_2014apr20


Happy Sunday! Sunday means it time for a brand new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Be sure to check it out and we hope you’ll play along with us!


SSSC216

I’m using some of the latest MFT release that I didn’t get to use yet—parts of sets, anyway. AND, I went kinda wacky with the diaper and made it a gift card holder. I’m thinking most new babies get all kinds of stuff but that the new moms and dads might want a break from cooking at some point and pizza would look pretty darn good. Of course ANY gift card would work, this is one I had handy ;-)

My card starts with a Kraft card stock base onto which I added a piece of Berrylicious card stock stamped with LJD Darling Dots in Sweet Tooth pigment ink. For the vertical strips, I stamped a couple of pieces of Sweet Tooth card stock with the baby rattler from LJD Beautiful Baby with Berrylicious ink. The Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics element was stamped with Striped Backgrounds and Versamark. The diaper was cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and then dry embossed with MPD Square Tiles Stencil and “pinned” with silver glitter paper diaper pins with Berrylicious card stock clasps. It was popped up on foam on the sides and bottom and left open at the top for gift card access. The sentiment, from LJD Beautiful Baby, was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray ink and also popped up on foam.

Another sentiment from LJD Beautiful Baby was stamped on the inside.

Sorry You’re Under the Weather–C4C #232

C4C232_2014apr19


Hi, everyone! It’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! Since this is the third week of the month it’s sketch time, too! Joanne had a great sketch for us—I REALLY had fun with this one.


C4C232

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then adhered a partial panel of Sweet Tooth card stock on which I stamped the new Bokeh Builder set in Cotton Candy ink, Sour Apple ink, and Orange Fizz ink. I said it before and I’ll say it again—Bokeh Builder is so.much.fun to play with! I can’t wait to try other color combos.

Then I cut a piece of Grout Gray card stock with Oval STAX Die-namics, dry embossed with Raindrops Stencil and popped it up on foam. I built a Layered Umbrella Die-namics using Steel Gray card stock, Black Licorice card stock, Cotton Candy card stock, Sour Apple card stock, and Orange Fizz card stock, shaped the canopy and popped it up on foam. The sentiment, from Blue Skies Ahead, was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray ink, embellished with a small Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics flag, and popped up on foam, as well. Following the sketch, some black enamel dots finished it off.

Here’s a close up of my stencil-embossed raindrops—love how they add a subtle texture for a background.

A sentiment from Get Well Wishes was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray ink.

Nothing but Blue Skies–MFTWSC #172

MFTWSC172_2014apr16

Hey, there! It’s Wednesday noon so it must be time for this week’s MFTWSC! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I’m just in love with the weather-themed products from MFT’s April release—well, I’m in love with the entire release, actually, but especially the scene-building weather products. What fun they are! My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I stamped some LJD Spring Backgrounds flowers on more Sweet Tooth card stock with Berrylicious ink and filled in the centers with a Copic marker. I matted that with Black Licorice card stock and adhered it to the base. Then I spread some modeling paste on a piece of Berrylicious card stock using Cloudy Day Stencil and popped up a strip of it on foam after first adhering a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics cut from Black Licorice card stock. The sentiment, from Blue Skies Ahead, was stamped with Black Licorice ink on a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Pierced Oval STAX Die-namics and also popped up on foam. The finishing touch was a trio of enamel dots.

Another sentiment from Blue Skies Ahead was stamped on the inside.
