Fun, right?? I’m using BB Beary Special Birthday Stamp Set for this card. Originally this bear was holding one balloon and I wanted him to have more. So, I stamped the bear, masking off the balloon, then stamped the three balloon image in the same place. The center balloon string is on top of the original balloon strip and it worked out perfectly :) Since I combined two stamps, I had to fussy cut it out but that was no problem, then I colored it with Copic markers. I adhered Plaid Patterns Paper Pack to my card base and used these colors for my balloons.

Next I added Sweet Tooth card stock framed with Single Stitch Line Tag-Corner Rectangle STAX Die-namics, popped up on foam tape, and added the bear, also popped up on foam. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock, adhered with foam tape for dimension and it was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

MFT_WSC_390

Well, I had to study on this sketch for a while! When I decided to create a scene and to mentally ignore the horizontal strip between the two squares. I used a watercolor background, colored the images with Copic markers, and popped up the card front on foam tape.

To add a little more interest, I dry embossed the card front with one of my favorite stencils, Sunrise Radiating Rays. I finished off with a heat embossed sentiment strip.

Pink Makes Anything Fabulous–Color Throwdown Challenge #498

CTD498_2018jun20


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lynn has chosen this gorgeous color combo based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.

swatch498

So I totally went with the inspiration piece theme. I started by stenciling Mini Cloud Edges with Peach Bellini Premium Dye Ink, then added the sentiment stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. Then I added the foreground elements: Grassy Edges Die-namics, water, and sand, cut with Stitched Snow Drifts (minus the stitching).

CTD498_2018jun20b

Next I added LLD Flamingos Die-namics and a palm tree from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics. I love those flamingos!! I added several neutrals for this design to complement the three pinks and the green of the challenge colors.

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

Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Sweet Tooth, Lush Lagoon, Kraft, and Daffodil.

To begin, I stamped the June Release Moroccan Mosaic Background on Ranger Watercolor Paper and then did a watercolor resist background with Peerless Watercolors, then popped it up on the card base with foam tape.

Next I cut a bunch of Stitched Blooms Die-namics from Daffodil and Kraft card stocks, assembled the flowers, and arranged and adhered them to the card front. Then I cut three copies of Twice the Hugs Die-namics, adhered the layers together and then to the card front. To finish off, I added some Sprinkles in the challenge colors.

You Rock–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #389

MFTWSC389_2018jun13

Hi, everyone, I’m back 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 Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


MFT_WSC_389
This sketch leaves a lot of room for interpretation, I think. As long as you have the elements there you can do most anything with the rest of the card. And I did ;-) I created a mini scene with Jungle Vibes Stamp Set inspired by the sentiment I chose. I created a watercolor background, added Grassy Edges Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock, a sun, a cloud, and the guitar-playing zebra and tree, colored with Copic markers.

MFTWSC389_2018jun13b

I heat embossed the sentiment, from All About You, on Black Licorice card stock cut with Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and added You Trio Die-namics for the larger element, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and popped up on foam. Music notes added the three accent elements. This was a really fun card to make!
