MFT Sketch Challenge #329

I just love this adorable die from My Favorite Things - Die-namics Roses in Bloom.


I also used the current sketch #329:


I flipped the sketch upside down.

I die cut the rose from the white cardstock and then backed it in the red and green, making sure to keep hold of the rose detail to add back on top.
I used the 'Springtime Blooms' stamp set for the sentiment, which I heat embossed in white.
A few die cut hearts and drawn on stitching finishes the card off!




Thanks for looking!

CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Challenge #172 - Color Challenge


I LOVE this color combo! 

I used the RAD 2 Stamp Set to stamp onto the navy cardstock.
I used Versamark's watermark stamp and then heat embossed in white.
The pink paper is form Echo Park's 'Everyday Eclectic' collection.
A little twine finishes the card off!

MFT Color Challenge #67

I've just received my MFT goodies and had to play!!
This week's color challenge on the My Favorite Things blog (#67) was a selection of orange, blue & yellow:


Here is the card I made, inspired by the color combo:


I used the Die-namics snow drifts border die for the edges and hand pierced the holes to match.
I then used 'Springtime Blooms' stamps for the flowers in 2 shades of orange ink from color box.
The sentiment is also from the 'Springtime Blooms' stamp set, which I stamped using Versamark's watermark stamp. I than used white embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment.
A little bakers twine finishes the card off.

Hello little one...

I used this super cute digital image from Craftin' Desert Divas - 'Hello Little One'.


I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils, using the current mood board from Crafting' Desert Diva's Facebook challenge for the color combo and 'new' spring theme:



I used the current sketch from the challenge at MFT - Sketch 328 for a guide to my card design.



I used my silhouette to cut out the heart from the background, which I then backed with vellum. I used washi tape from my stash for the diagonal stripe at the back.

Whimsy Stamps April Challenge - Anything Goes with a twist of 'Spring'


This month's challenge theme is 'Anything Goes' with the added option of a 'Spring' theme.
I used this adorable clear stamp set from the new release - 


I colored the image using my prismacolor pencils and used the stitched tag die set to cut it out. I used the 'Magical Birthday Wishes' clear stamp set to add the sentiment to the tag. I also used the 'Shaker Builder - Sweetest Birthday' die set to cut out the frame and birthday sentiment. I added some 'Summer Breeze' enamel dots and a little bakers twine to finish the card off.
The papers are from Echo Park's 'Country Drive' collection which I felt gave us the perfect Spring theme.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #171 - Rainbows


Anyone who knows me, knows how messy I can be when crafting! Give me inks, stamps and stencils and it can be a disaster! Lol!
I was actually quite suprised how 'clean' this card turned out!


I used my Color Box cat's eye inks with the Whimsy Stamps butterfly stencil to create a rainbow effect of colors.
The 'Happy' die is coming out on Wednesday (*SNEAK PEEK ALERT*!!), which I cut out 3 times and then stuck together to make them thicker.
I used the Whimsy Stamps 'Say What' clear stamp set (retired) for the birthday sentiment.
Some colored washi tape from my stash finished the card off!
