Catered Crop Recipe Challenge–Black and White Stripes Inspiration

1cateredcrop_2014oct17

It’s time for another Catered Crop Challenge and this time Linda has an inspiration piece for us. For this challenge you can celebrate the sport of football and/or take direct inspiration from this picture. As always, Linda has a Pinterest board to help you here: End Zone. It’s all about the black and white stripes, but don’t let that limit you. Interpret the challenge anyway you like.


The inspiration piece is all about football, but since I couldn’t care less about football (don’t hate, LOL!) I went with the black and white focus with some red for accent.

My card started with a Black Licorice card stock base, then I went to town on a piece of Grout Gray card stock. I stamped it lightly with Typewriter Text Background, Fine Chevron Background, Striped Backgrounds, and You’ve Got Mail stamp set. I sponged the edges with Steel Gray ink and popped it up on foam on the base. Next, I added a Black Licorice card stock tree, cut with Spooky Scene Die-namics and added a couple of red birds cut with Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds Die-namics from Wild Cherry card stock. The first part of the sentiment was stamped on a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink and part of a sentiment from PI Holiday Hugs Snowman and finished with a die cut “joy” using Peace, Love, Joy Die-namics, which was popped up on foam.

A sentiment from PI Christmas Banner was stamped on the inside.

Holiday Window–MFTWSC #199

MFTWSC199_2014oct23


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.

MFTWSC199
Am I the only one who looks at this and thinks “window”? I just HAD to do a scene using this sketch—how could I NOT, LOL!?

So, I started with a Berrylicious card stock card base and worked from there. I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, Tree Lines Die-namics using Kraft card stock, Jellybean Green card stock, and Gumdrop Green card stock for the outside scene. Square Grid Cover-Up Die-namics was cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and popped up on the scene. I made a Winter Wreath Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock, Jellybean Green card stock, and Gumdrop Green card stock with a Wild Cherry card stock bow. The sentiment is from DC Ornament Banner Builder and was stamped on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink and popped up. A single tree from Tree Lines Die-namics was added to the sentiment strip.

A sentiment from
Seasonal Sentiments was stamped on the inside.

Grateful–CTD #315

CTD315_2014oct23


Hey, there, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the most fabulous Jodi is hosting for the first time and she has chosen some luscious fall colors for us.



swatch 315

I started with a Primitive White card stock base, then trimmed down another piece of Primitive White card stock and dry embossed a frame in the center with two sizes of Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I masked the framed area off and splattered some ink from my mini mister sprays in the challenge colors. I used MIX-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist and the following to mix up my sprays: Jellybean Green refill, Banana Split refill, and Tangy Orange refill.

Next, I added a sentiment, using Words of Gratitude Die-namics, cut from gold mirror paper. Then I cut some leaves, using Falling Leaves Die-namics, from Banana Split card stock, Jellybean Green card stock, and Tangy Orange card stock, added adhered them together, and splattered them with gold spray. I curled up some gold thread, adhered the leaf cluster, and it was done.

A sentiment from Thankful Thoughts was stamped on the inside with Chocolate Brown ink.
