Challenge Card No 2 – MFT Color Challenge

Hi again.  Another quick post with card number 2 for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge 86.

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_86

I  used two of the same products as Card No 1 (blog post for that card HERE) by My Favorite Things – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die.   The images are stamped with the Ripe Raspberry, Orange Zest and Gumdrop Green and coloured in corresponding colours with Prismacolor coloured pencils.  The background cardstock is MFT Blue Yonder. I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo and added a few diamantes.

Good morning.  A quick post with a card for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge 86.

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_86

I  used all My Favorite Things products – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die and ‘Mini Cloud‘ stencils.   All the stamp images are coloured with Copics and ink blended with Blue Yonder for the sky and Gumdrop Green for the ground.  I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo.

I will also be entering the above card into the current Muse Challenge #251 using the inspiration card below by Vicki Dutcher.  I used the general layout, the colours and three images.

Casology Challenge #261

When I saw this cue card I knew I had at least three stamp sets I wanted to use soooo…here they are.  There are 4 in total I’ve entered into the Casology Challenge #261 so I’ll try to keep the words to a minimum.

Week 261 - Safari

Card No 1

Spritzed cardstock with Heidi Swapp Color Shine ‘Citron’, diecut with leaves from Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ and adhered the negative pieces of the diecut.  Monkey and sentiment from My Favorite Things ‘Sweet Safari’.

Safari-1-10

Card No 2

Cardstock spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine ‘Citron’. Background diecut (brand unknown) and used all of the pieces.  Cut the die cut down with the My Favorite Things ‘Stitched Dome Stax’.  The leaves were die cut from Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ but this time used the positive cuts in white card.  Giraffe and sentiment are from WPlus9 ‘Party Animal’ and coloured using Derwent Inktense Pencils.Safari-1-3

Safari-1-9

Card No 3

I’ve been wanting to use this elephant from Katzelkraft ‘Les Jungles’ and wanted to keep it simple. Coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Sentiment is from Gerda Steiner ‘Monster Fun’.

Safari-1-5Safari-1-6

And finally Card No 4

Die cut Craft Wise ‘Scalloped circle’ out of American Craft cardstock.  Placed some DCWV zebra patterned paper behind and once again used the Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ leaves.  Zebra and sentiment is My Favorite Things ‘Sweet Safari’ coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is heat embossed in Hero Arts White as it needs a bit of dimension when stamped on textured card.

So that’s it…hope you liked them.

Bubble Chicks Box Card

Hello everyone

Today I’m showcasing a box card I created recently.  Stamping Bella ‘Bubble Chicks’ are the featured images which I coloured with Copics.   I wanted to create the effect of the chicks and bubbles floating high above the ground so used die cut tree shapes by My Favorite Things ‘Trees in the Forest’ to create a tree top effect.  They are diecut out of cardstock that I had ink blended with Ranger Distress Inks and then splashed water drops over to create a mottled effect.

Bubble chicks-1-2

The house and clouds were die cut with My Favorite Things ‘Home Sweet Home’.  The floating effect is achieved by used 250gsm binding cover acetate cut into small strips.  This weight of cover is very sturdy.

Bubble chicks-1-3

All of the sky sections were ink blended with Ranger Distress Inks.

A Novel Birthday…

Welcome to my blog today.  I have a birthday card with the main image by Stamping Bella Uptown Girl ‘Betty loves Books‘.  Stamping Bella images are great to colour, not too much detail that you get overwhelmed but enough to do a bit of simple blending with copics to give dimension to the dress.

Novel Birthday-1-6

I stamped, coloured and diecut a vase of flowers from My Favorte Things ‘Our Story’ stamp set to replace the apple that was in the original image…the recipient of this card doesn’t like fruit!!!  I also coloured and cut out the book again and popped it up with thin foam adhesive.

The sentiment was also from ‘Our Story’ and I placed it vertically to echo the feel of the stacks of books and those lovely long legs of Betty.

Novel Birthday-1

I always struggle with backgrounds.  I wanted something subtle but also a little bit special and knew this could be achieved with Ranger Perfect Pearls.  I first stamped the background using My Favorite Things ‘Denim’ stamp with the sticky ink that comes with the Perfect Pearls (you can also use Versamark).  I then dusted the Perfect Pearls over the top, brushed the excess off and misted it lightly with water to set the Perfect Pearls.

The final step was to apply some clear Wink of Stella to the book and vase, Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flowers and some glossy accents to the glasses…so cute!

Hope you enjoyed this card.

Challenge yourself

Hi Everyone.  Just a quick post today to enter this card into three challenges.

The hearts from My Favorite Things ‘All Heart’ were stamped in Versamark Ink, heated embossed with Zing Red Glitter powder, cut out with matching die and popped up on craft foam.  I then masked off the square on the black cardstock and applied Hero Arts Pigment Ink in ‘Unicorn’ over a Faber Castell diamond stencil.  The sentiment, also from My Favorite Things ‘All Heart’ was embossed in Hero Arts white powder, as was the line from Concord and 9th ‘Stripe Builder’ stamp set.  The most challenging thing about this card was taking the photo…who knew how tricky it is to take a photo of black cardstock!!!

Sparkly Heart-1-5

I’ll be linking this card up with the following three challenges:

Yeah…You’re so Tweet

So…I happened to be out shopping at Spotlight for craft supplies the other day…no surprises there!  I saw a lovely 6×6 paper stack by DCWV called The Glitter Basics Stack which was on sale so of course I had to have it and I knew the small scale patterns would be perfect with the Altenew Bold Alphabet Dies.

Yeah-1-2

I started by diecutting the letters and built them up with extra letters cut out of black cardstock and adhered together. The background is stamped in Versamark  with the My Favorite Things ‘Garden Florish’ background stamp to give a slightly darker colour than the cardstock colour.

I then used the My Favorite Things ‘All Heart’  stamp set for the sentiment and birds.   The bird image is coloured with Inktense pencils and then diecut with the matching dies.

Yeah-1-3

Once it was all put together I added  Wink of Stella glitter pen over the birds and ta-dah … it’s finished.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A bit of Cute Laundry

I’m sure we all love a baby card.  The sentiments in the My Favorite ThingsWelcome Baby’ are so much fun and mix so well with the Lawn FawnLittle Bundle’ images.   I wanted something simple and clean…(pun intended 🙂 ).  I thought by having a circle framed opening it would look like a front opening washing machine.

Cute Laundry-1-5

All the images are copic coloured in neutral colours for a boy or girl.  I cut the grey frame with My Favorite Things DienamicsStitched Circle Frames‘ die 3 times and glued them together to create a raised element.  As I was originally going to make it a shaker card I adhered a piece of transparency over the back of the opening but when I put it together I felt that the images didn’t ‘shake’ well so I changed it to the images simply being adhered to the background.

Cute Laundry-1-2

To add some texture to the card I used American Crafts textured cardstock (which I have a big stack of!!)  for the frame and behind the clothes.  I also popped up the cardfront with white craft foam and layered the clothes to give some extra dimension.  I then stamped the sentiment in Altenew Crisp dye ink in ‘Lagoon’.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
