OMGosh! Multi-step stamping at it’s best, I tell ya! I love these flowers—and that sentiment set! Swoon!!! I wanted to make a fairly simple card that would pack a punch and these orange flowers came through! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut more Sweet Tooth card stock with the new Zig Zag Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics and stamped the sentiment from Written in Watercolor with Black Licorice dye ink. Then I stamped up three of the flowers and the two leaves with the following ink, bottom up: Orange Fizz dye ink, Orange Zest dye ink, Persimmon dye ink, Limelight dye ink, Sour Apple dye ink, and Jellybean Green dye ink. The flower centers were stamped with Black Licorice dye ink. After they were stamped up the only thing left was to adhere them, some popped up on foam mounting tape, and to add a few enamel dots for balance.

Another sentiment from Written in Watercolor was stamped on the inside.

Pink Makes Anything Fabulous–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #230

MFTWSC230_2015may28


Hi, everyone, I’m back again with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

So, I think I warned you that you’d be seeing lots of Flamingos Die-namics from me, right? Well, here’s another one ;-) This sketch just begged for it and who was I to argue? I started with a Grout Gray card stock base. Then I added a Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock with white embossing paste added through Small Chevron Stripes Stencil and popped up on foam mounting tape. Next is a Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics, cut from Ranger watercolor paper and water colored with Blueberry dye ink and Jellybean Green dye ink to set my scene. The sentiment, from Tickled Pink, was stamped on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics cut from Summer Splash card stock and positioned so as to add the “water” for the scene. I think it works, don’t you? Then I added a Cross-Stitch Circle STAX Die-namics sun, cut from Daffodil card stock, some Cloud Cover-Up Die-namics clouds, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, and, of course, the sweet Flamingo Die-namics, cut from Tickled Pink card stock, Sweet Tooth card stock, Grout Gray card stock, and Black Licorice card stock. Some black twine and enamel dots finished it off.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.

Smile Shaker Card–CTD #344

ctd344_2015may27


Howdy, all, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Miss Vickie is our host and she has a really summery palette for us: light pink, light yellow, and green. Looks yummy, doesn’t it?

Are you getting tired of seeing shaker cards from me? I just love making them and sometimes I can’t stop myself ;-) This one is 4 1/4” square, starting with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I cut TRANSFORM-ables Smile Die-namics from more Sweet Tooth card stock and then edged it with Cross-Stitch Square STAX Die-namics. I built my shaker box with heat resistant acetate for the window and foam mounting tape, added sequins and seed beads, and closed up the back with Sweet Tooth card stock. I adhered it to the card base and added some Desert Bouquet flowers, stamped with Lemon Chiffon dye ink, Tickled Pink dye ink, and Daffodil dye ink then fussy cut them out. I added them to the upper left corner, along with some Wild Greenery Die-namics, cut from Limelight card stock and called it done!

A sentiment from Totally Happy was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray dye ink.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD344 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd344 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented May Guest Designer, Tenia Nelson!
