Woof You–C4C #346


Hello, everyone, welcome to a brand new Crazy 4 Challenges! Since this week is National Hog Dog Week (who comes UP with this stuff???) Joanne is challenging us to include some kind of picnic connection on our projects. 

I do not have any sets that have a picnic theme so I had to wing it ;-) I went with an actual dog in the shape of a hot dog, LOL! Plus, I used red check paper for the cushion inside his dog house. How’s that for thinking outside the box? Works for me!

I started with a
Sweet Tooth card stock base, applied a watercolor wash to Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape. I added Radiant Sun Die-namics, cut from Sunshine card stock, Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, Grassy Hills Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple card stock and Gumdrop Green card stock, some popped up on foam for dimension.


Dog House Die-namics was cut from Wild Cherry card stock, Gravel Gray card stock, Sweet Tooth card stock, and the cushion stamped with BB Cool Cat and fussy cut out. The dog image is from Top Dog and Top Dog Die-namics, stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers, and popped up on foam.

And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C346.

Thanks for stopping by today—see you soon!

My Favorite Things and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L – Day Three


Hi, everyone, welcome to Day Three of MFT’s collaboration with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! We reach for adhesives repeatedly during our creative process and they need to be good. I tried out several products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L for this card and I’m going to tell you about them.

First, here’s my card:


I started by trimming a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper and applying a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush. Then I adhered several pieces of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8” and Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/4” to create a pattern of stripes…


…like this


Then I removed the red cover and sprinkled Antique Gold Microfine Glitter on the exposed adhesive to get this:


It is very smooth and completely covered with glitter—this tape does an amazing job with the glitter.

Next I popped up the card front on my
Sweet Tooth card stock base with Crafty Foam Tape for dimension.


Then I used one of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets to give dimension to my die cut sentiment from Hello There Die-namics.


I simply adhered some of the adhesive sheet to Black Licorice card stock and cut it out with my Vagabond like normal—it cut quite well and cleanly with no stringiness. Much faster than adhering several layers of die cut together!


I added Bold Greenery Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple card stock, and a stamped sentiment from Forest Friends, stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock and cut with Blueprints 29 Die-namics, both adhered with E-Z Dots Permanent Refillable Dispenser, as was the die cut sentiment.

To summarize, I am really impressed with these products and I think you will be too if you give them a try. Be sure to visit the
MFT blog and Scrapbook Adhesives blog for more inspiration--leave comments at both places for your chance to win prizes!

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

I Think You’re Spectacular–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #290


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.

I hadn’t used my LLD Geek Is Chic stamp set and LLD Geek Is Chic Glasses Die-namics in a while so I pulled them out for this card. I started with a Primitive Cream card stock base and applied molding paste on the front through Jumbled Letters Stencil. While that was drying, I cut more Primitive Cream card stock with Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics and stamped the glasses image with Natural dye ink, stamped off once for a subtle pattern. I found some stamped up paper in my stash, made with Plaid Background Builder and Kraft dye ink, Safety Orange dye ink, Jellybean Green dye ink, and Cornflower dye ink. I cut it with Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and added it with a piece of Safety Orange card stock stamped with Wood Plank Background and Safety Orange dye ink cut with Blueprints 7 Die-namics, all popped up on foam mounting tape.


The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Cornflower card stock and heat embossed with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder, then also popped up on foam. Next I added some faux tortoiseshell glasses using a technique that I show in THIS YouTube video.

And that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
