Ahoy–MFTWSC #235

MFTWSC235_2015jul2


Hi, everyone, I’m back again 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 Challenge & Inspiration Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I couldn’t resist making a shaker card with this sketch!! Circles speak to me that way, LOL! Well, I don’t need much of an excuse to make a shaker card any time :) I started with a Primitive White card stock base on which I stamped the rope image from Go Overboard with Black Licorice dye ink in a diagonal pattern. Next up is a Kraft card stock panel stamped with the anchor from the set with Versamark, cut out with Blueprints 23 Die-namics and popped up on foam mounting tape. I created my shaker element by cutting silver foil card stock with Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics, backing it with Berrylicious card stock stenciled with Waves Stencil and Berrylicious dye ink. I added a few 6mm sand sequins, closed it up and adhered it to the Kraft panel. The sentiment was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder then adhered to the circle. I cut the anchor with Let’s Get Nautical Die-namics from Grout Gray card stock and distressed it up a bit before adding some cotton yarn “rope” and adding it.

On the inside is another sentiment from Go Overboard.

Hello, Hello, Hello–CTD #349

CTD349_2015jul1

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the so very talented Jodi is our host and she’s chosen one of my all time favorite color combos for us to play with!


swatch 349

I chose to keep this card very CAS and let those color pop! To do that I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, popped up on foam mounting tape, on which to work. With Say What? Die-namics I cut out some Kraft card stock and stamped a sentiment from LJD Sea Life and popped it up on foam mounting tape. I cut Orange Fizz card stock and Blu Raspberry card stock using dies from LLD Smart Phone Die-namics and stamped sentiments on them from LJD Grand Peaceful Wildflowers and LLD Friend Request. All sentiments were stamped with Black Licorice dye ink. I adhered the Blu Raspberry element directly to the card and the Orange Fizz element was also popped up foam. To finish off I added some matching enamel dots. Simple, but I love how it turned out!

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown.

Hay There–SSSC #275

SSSC275_2015jun28


Hey there, everybody! ;-) It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I really enjoyed playing with this sketch although it did take some thinking to come up with an idea.


SSSC275

I started with a Blue Breeze card stock base and built my scene on it. Bottom to top: Green Room card stock and Sweet Tooth card stock with Rolling Hills Die-namics, popped up on foam mounting tape. Daffodil card stock and Blueprints 21 Die-namics for the sun, more Sweet Tooth card stock and Cloud Cover-Up for the cloud. All of the images were stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers. Hay stacks were adhered and the sentiment stamped on Black Licorice card stock small flag die cut with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped up. Peek-a-Boo Trio Die-namics perfectly framed the images from BB The Whole herd and was popped up on foam to frame them with some dimension.

This was a super fun card to make and I ended up loving the sketch! Hope to see you playing along with us this week! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
