Hello Friend

I got a chance this weekend to play along with CASE Study Challenge # 197. My good friend Jacquie is the Guest Designer this month and inspired me to to play along! 


And here is my take on the challenge. 

I started by creating the background with the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics. Then I cut a hole in the lower right portion of the card with the Circle STAX Set 1 Die-namics. The black matting is cut with the Circle STAX Set 2 Die-namics. 


The sentiment is from the Fall Foliage Stamp Set, stamped on vellum with Sweet Tooth Ink, and embossed with white embossing powder. To create the flower embellishment I used the Pretty Posies and Leafy Flourish Die-namics.


On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the  Pretty Poppies Stamp Set. 

Here are the products I used on my card:

MFTWSC 182 - Smile

Hi! It's Wednesday which means it is time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge. I got a chance to play along this week. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog. I hope you get a chance to play along!

Here is my take on the sketch. 


I started by creating the background with the Pinstripe Background Stamp, stamping Sno Cone Ink on Sno Cone Card Stock

I used a combination of the Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and and the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut the the fishtails and the Wild Cherry Card Stock


The frame is cut with one of the dies in the Rectangle Frames Die-namics. The sentiment is from the Picture This Stamp Set and the camera is created with the Cute Cameras 2 Die-namics. The pattern behind the sentiment is stamped with the Linen Background Stamp.


Here's a look at the inside. The sentiment is included in the Picture This Stamp Set.

Celebrate Your Special Day

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a good weekend. We started the summer off yesterday with swimming, bbq, and eating outside for the first time this year. I haven't had much time in my studio this month so I was just feeling the need to create something! I made a card based on a couple of challenges. 


The layout of my card is based on the sketch challenge at the Seize The Sketch Challenge and the colors are based on this week Color Throwdown Challenge. 

I used the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics to create the background pattern. I used the Linen Background Stamp, stamping Berrylicious Ink on Berrylicious Card Stock. The linen pattern is cut out with the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics. The sentiment is from the Birthday Greeting Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. 


The flower embellishment is put together with the Upsy-DaisyLeaf-Filled Flourish, and Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics. 


On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the  Birthday Greeting Stamp Set.
