This one uses the poinsettia dies from PTI, and I sponged the edges with dark red ink for some contrast.
The banner and holly dies are from PTI, and the doily die is MFT.
Colored this one with copics and the ornament is from an oldie but goodie SU set. It's still one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets! It's such a favorite that I can't even remember the name of it, lol!
The label in the background here is PTI, and the large snowflake(it's either Cat's Pajamas or WPlus9, can't remember) is embossed with polka dots. I did some masking and selective inking to make the words work.
As you can see, I tried to stick with a color theme so they all coordinate. And I just love So Stripey. I need Jen to make it into a full-size set so I can cover a card front :)
Thanks for stopping by, let's go see what Jackie and Lisa made!
I recently got some new Christmas stamps from WPlus9,
and I just love them so much! It was time for some new ones, I'm tired of all my old Christmas stamps. It's been a few years since I've really seen any that I just LOVED and HAD to have, but WPlus9 did it this year!
So I broke out of my normal routine and did a sketch other than the MFT weekly one. I had already done this week's and needed something else to work on while I had the morning to myself. I came across this week's Deconstructed Sketch and gave it a whirl. Twice. I've been aware of this challenge but this is the first time I've played along. Here's the sketch:
It looked so fun that I made two cards with it! Here's the first:
I'll be posting the other one later. Thanks for stopping by!
Here we are, it's October already and we are up to 144 in the weekly MFT sketches.
Another Christmas card. I used soft stone for the base, and going gray for the frame (stamped the woodgrain in white). The snowflake is crisp cantaloupe and strawberry slush, and the banner is coastal cabana with snowflakes and stars stamped on it.
I've been following Reverse Confetti since they debuted a few months ago, but don't have any of their stamps yet. Yet.
From this month's sneaks, that will change!
Even though I don't have the stamps yet, I still decided to jump on the September SFYTT.
I loved the tag element, and I dressed this one up a bit. I can't stop using this color combo, or a variation of it! Gray is my new kraft!!! And I used to dislike very much Calypso Coral, and now I can't get enough of it. Crazy how that happens!
I'm here today with a challenge I did with my friends Lisa and Jackie. I challenged them to CASE the Stampin Up catalog. It's one of my favorite things to do every time I get a new one, and this year was no exception! I've done 8 of them so far this year, but I'll share just two.
This one is from page 105. I kept the colors basically the same as in the catty. I stamped the text block from MFT's Pretty Poppies in midnight muse on the base, and added some paint splatters (MFT - Abstract Art) in sno cone.
The arrows are from Jumbo Mod Borders (love!), and the mini hybrid heirloom rose is cut from pumpkin pie cardstock and dark orange felt. I added Leaf-filled Flourish in gray and sentiment in lucky limeade.
This next one comes from page 75. I created a heart-shaped mask that I could stamp the woodgrain through. The sentiment is from MFT,
as is the row of arrows (Right This Way).
Some rhinestones and strawberry slush hearts finish it off.
I can't wait to see what Lisa and Jackie have chosen to CASE!
I'm on track to complete all 52 of MFT's Wednesday Sketches again this year. They have made a change in how you link/upload your cards, so you'll be seeing more of them here instead of in my SCS gallery.
Just popping in to share the Mother's Day cards I made. Yay for having them done a few days early!
I used my favorite background pattern, Herringbone from Impression Obsession. The "Love" and "You" stamps are Verve, the MOM letters are MFT as is the heart. I used my new favorite embossing folder, honeycomb from SU.
Hi there, I'm still alive and I just stamped 3 days in a row! Guess I better put something on here to prove it!
My birthday card stash needs some replenishing, so those are the only kind of card I made.
I had this idea in my head and it actually translated into paper the way I envisioned it! Mark it down. I stamped the sentiment on a white card base, and then on a scrap of each color you see here. I also punched out various sizes of circles and stamped a little pattern from the sentiment set on the plain circles. Finished it off with a few rhinestones.
