Birthday Banner–MFTWSC #187


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.

This card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I whipped up some patterned paper for my background. First I stamped some Tangy Orange card stock with Typewriter Text Background and Steel Gray ink, then I made a plaid by stamping Plaid Builder Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Nightshift Blue Ink, Lemon Drop Ink, and Tangy Orange Ink. I popped that section up on foam then cut Jumbo Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics from Sweet Tooth Card Stock and, using Small Brick Wall Stencil, I spread on some embossing paste, dried it carefully with my heat tool, and then sponged the bricks with Tangy Orange Ink. After I stamped the sentiment, from PI Happy Banner with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, I popped up on foam and slipped a piece of Nightshift Blue Grosgrain Ribbon under the edge. For my focal image, I cut X-Press It Blending Card with PI Happy Banner Die-namics, stamped PI Happy Banner on it with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, colored it with Copic markers, and popped it up on foam, as well.

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from PI Happy Banner and another partial copy of the image.


And there you have it—this week’s

You Mean the World to Me–CTD #303


Hey, there! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and this week Miss Broni has a great color combo for us based on a yummy looking inspiration piece :)

swatch 303

My card started with a Kraft card stock base. Next I added a layer of Berrylicious card stock stamped with DC Large Scale Backgrounds and Sweet Tooth pigment ink. Next up is a layer of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Star Background and Red Hot ink, popped up on foam, with a strip of silver glitter paper added for an accent. I created my focal panel by cutting Centerpieces You Mean the World to Me Die-namics from Berrylicious card stock, then adhered Sour Apple card stock on which I’d stamped Linen Background with Gumball Green ink. I substituted Red Hot card stock for  the YOU, then tied some hemp cord around. I popped it up on foam and added a Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics star cut from silver glitter paper and a hemp cord tied Red Hot button.

For the inside, I die cut Centerpieces You Mean the World to Me Die-namics from scrap paper and used it as a stencil to sponge on some Sour Apple ink, then over stamped the sentiment, from PI Will You Be Mine? with Steel Gray ink.


And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the

Wishing You Happiness–SSSC #229


Hello there—it’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge time! Karen has a fun layout for us today (although I did make it an A2—I couldn’t help myself, LOL!).

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then created the large panel by stamping Romantic Script Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray ink and matting it with Steel Gray card stock. I popped up part of a Heart Doily Die-namics on foam after stamping the sentiment, from More Essential Sentiments, then added a strip of Grout Gray card stock with Staggered Heart Border Die-namics cut from Bubblegum card stock. I made a Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and slipped a couple Leafy Flourish Die-namics, cut from Spearmint card stock, under it.

A sentiment from LJD Together Forever was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray ink.


And that’s it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
