A Friend Like You–C4C #282

C4C282_2015apr18

Hi, everyone, welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! It’s sketch week and Lynn has a fun one for us this week.

Obviously, I flipped it, but other than that I stayed pretty true to the sketch. I started with a Primitive Cream card stock base, then stamped up some Kraft card stock with Versamark and On the Diagonal Background. I cut that out with Blueprints 23 Die-namics, added some Black Licorice strips on either side, and popped it up on foam mounting tape. I added some LJD Circle Scribble Flowers Die-namics cut from Daffodil card stock, Ripe Raspberry card stock, Summer Splash card stock, and Sour Apple card stock, stamped with LJD Circle Scribble Flowers and Black Licorice dye ink. I popped them up on foam, as well. The sentiment is from Friends Like Us and was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Sweet Tooth Pigment ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped up on foam mounting tape. I finished off with some enamel dots.

Another sentiment from Friends Like Us was stamped on the inside with Black Licorice dye ink.

I Dig You

countdownday2b_2015apr4


Hi, everyone, I just love the new BB You Gnome Me so I had to play with it again.

I went CAS with this card, starting with a Black Licorice card stock base, to which I added a Kraft card stock layer, cut with Blueprints 24 Die-namics. On a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb I stamped the gnome with Black Licorice hybrid ink, then masked off enough to stamp the grass from BB Let’s Hang Out with Sour Apple dye ink. Then I colored my gnome with Copic markers, stamped the sentiment, tied around some baker’s twine, and popped it up on foam. To finish it off, I added some enamel dots.

On the INSIDE, I stamped another sentiment and yet another gnome—they are so CUTE!

Shakers Gonna Shake--Hats Off to the Graduate!

MFTWSC224_2015apr16


Hi, everyone, have you been seeing all the shaker cards at MFT? I have one for you today for the “word” shaker card theme. It’s technically not a WORD, but numbers count :) I made a graduation card using “2015” for my “word”. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details—there are prizes to be won during this fun promotion!

I’m also using this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge for my layout 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.

I’ll admit, I was really stumped about those four round elements at the bottom of the sketch. I thought and thought what to use there and then decided to think out of the box. What could I used that I’d have four of Letters! I thought of four letter words—love came to mind but I didn’t want to do that particularly, so then I thought of numbers. 2015?? Yes, that would be perfect for a graduation card, especially if I made it a shaker element!! But, what about that rectangle element that would cover part of the numbers. Go clear, I thought, go clear!! It totally works and here’s how I did it: I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut another A2 size piece of Sweet Tooth card stock. I laid out 2015 using By the Numbers Die-namics, taped them down with removable tape, and cut them out. Next I ran it through again, embossing with Starry Night Stencil. I created my shaker element but added some Heat Resistant acetate for the window and popping up with foam mounting tape. I added green, black, and clear sequins along with some matching seed beads and closed it up. I popped it up on my card base and cut more Heat Resistant acetate for the rectangle element with Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics and set it aside. Next I created the Black Licorice card stock sentiment panel by stamping the sentiment from LLD Happy Graduation with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then adhered it to the acetate. I cut “Class of” from LLD Graduation Accents Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and adhered it to the acetate with a Quickie Glue Pen, then added the mortar board cut from Field Day card stock and popped up on foam mounting tape. I popped that panel up on foam, putting the tape under the black and under the mortarboard so it’s not seen from the front.

Here’s a close up:
