CTD261 - Summer Fun

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! It's Wednesday which means it time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge. 


Vickie is our host this week and she chose this bright and sunny color combo!


This week's color combo is perfect inspiration for scrapping a few summer pictures! 


I used the Graduated Dots Stencil and Light Molding Paste to add texture to the page.

The sun is cut with the Sunshine Die-namics and I added a button the center.


The arrows are cut with the dies in the Lead the Way Die-namics. I cut the arrow twice, once from chipboard and once from card stock. Love making my own chipboard embellishments! The word "fun" is created with the High-Rise Alphabet Lowercase Die-namics. 

I hope you get a chance to play along!

CTD260 - Wine Country

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! It's Wednesday which means it time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge. 


Tammy is our host this week and I love this pretty color combo she has chosen! 


This week's colors seemed like the perfect inspiration for my scrap page with pictures from Napa Valley.


I used the Max Alphabet Stamp Set to spell out "Napa" using Red Brick Ink. "Good Times" is cut with the Accent It - Celebrate Die-namics.


I used one of my favorite scrapbooking dies, Insert It - InstaFrame Die-namics, to create this frame from corrugated paper.


The pretty sunflowers are cut with the Sunflower Die-namics, and the flourishes with the Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics. Any patterned paper I used is from Graphic 45's French Country. 

I hope you get a chance to play along!

MFT's September Creative Challenge

Welcome to MFT's September Creative Challenge! The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month we are exploring MFT's Playful Peek-a-Boos Products.

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have a project to share with you today. 


To create the background I sponged Pink Lemonade Ink onto Pink Lemonade Card Stock using the Mini Chicken Wire Stencil. Then I used the Flying Butterflies Die-namics to die cut the butterflies.

The sentiment is from the Winged Beauties Stamp Set.


The butterfly is cut with the Fancy Butterflies Die-namics. The top butterfly is cut from chipboard and covered with embossing powder. The circle is cut with the Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics and layered on a doily cut with the smaller die in the Dainty Doily Duo


On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Winged Beauties Stamp Set.


On my next card I used the Peek-a-Boo Trio Die-namics and added hearts to the center of circle with one of the heart in the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics.

The sentiment is from the Sunny Day Doodles Celebrate Life Stamp Set and is colored with Copics. I used the Checkerboard Stencil to create the background with Wild Cherry Ink on Kraft Card Stock.


On the inside I stamped another sentiment for the Sunny Day Doodles Celebrate Life Stamp Set.
