MFT Sketch Challenge 186

 
 
I got a box of goodies that I had ordered from My Favorite Things
and so I thought to play along with their Wednesday sketch challenge.
You can check out their challenge HERE.
MFTWSC186
 
 
Here's the card I made:
 
This card folds at the top. To make it just cut 4 and 1/4" by 11 " and fold in half
I used a stampin up embossing folder for the front panel .
Then I cut a grey panel, added a patterned  paper circle
 that I cut with my new pierced circle stax dies.
The flowers were cut using the MFT Flower & Leaf Trio Die.
The HB2U Tag  is a  die that I got free for ordering a certain amount...so of course that gives me a reason to order even more stuff, because who doesn't love getting free stuff?!  lol
 
Thanks for stopping by.
If you want to make my day, leave me a comment..even if it's just to say "HI"
 
till next time,

Sweet Sunday Sketch

 
 
This morning I'd like to share with you a card that I made
using today's Sweet Sunday Sketch 228.
 
 


Here's what the inside looks like:
 
I paper pieced the cute little guy on the front. 
Easy to do...stamp on scrap of base color first and also stamp another one on white .
add shading ... no need to be neat, you're going to cut him out....
because I wanted him to have a pink tongue and white teeth,
I stamped him on white...colored his tongue and cut out the mouth , then
glued it on top of the green one. Then I cut out the green one and popped him
up with thin pop dots on the circle on the card front.
 
Here's the supplies I used:
 
 
and here's a picture of Gracie... who helped with everything!!!
 
 
Believe it or not ...this is her smiling!
 
 
till next time,
Doni

Viva La Verve

 
Today's challenge on Viva La Verve is a sketch & an inspiration Photo
 
You can check it out out HERE
 
 
This is my take on it:
 
The butterfly was cut using my silhouette.
 I also used a edge punch and a MFT Die-namics open scallop doily die.

CAS(E) this sketch

 
Check out their  website and play along!
Here's the sketch for this week:
 
 
Pretty and simple...should be easy to do...right?
 
Well, I stayed pretty much just like the sketch and found out it's harder than you think
to get the right side exactly like the left side !
 
 
You can't tell from the picture, but I used black glitter on the butterfly
and a black glaze gloss pen over top of the flourishes .
the stamps I used are:
Simon Says Stamp- birthday messages
Butterfly by inkadinkado- spring mini assortment
and flourishes by Hampton Arts
The tiny black spots are very small black pearls.
 
Thanks for Looking!
 
till next time,
Doni

This is the card I made for Sunday's challenge:
 
You can check her out in my gallery HERE.
 
I colored her with copic markers. RV69 matched the plaid exactly...yea!
 
I was not so lucky when it came to the little pearls...but I did find out that you can color them with the markers....Yea, again!
 
 
Today the challenge is a CAS color challenge. They picked my favorite colors...double yea!
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

The cutting Edge Challenge #3

 
 
I've been away from my craft room far too long!
Today I'd like to share with you the card I made for
The Cutting Edge Challenge #3.
Here is the inspiration piece:
 
TCEC_3
 
After many false starts.... mojo where have you gone!....
I ended up going with a monochromatic color design.
I guess if you can't decide what colors to use, pick one and go with it!
My daughter has a birthday coming up soon and her favorite color is Blue,
 
 
I die cut three balloons from the white panel and then used copic markers
to color the card front under the cut out spaces.
In my stash I found a product
called waxy flax by scrap works...can't even tell you how OLD this stuff is!
It made great balloon strings.
Then I die cut letters and splashed on some sequins and called it done.
 
Here's what I used:
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
till next time,
