May This Year Be Your Best Ever

MFTWSC194
I used some of my new MFT goodies.  The card base is Smooth White, the next layer is Grape Jelly, stamped with the new Burlap Background in Grape Jelly ink.  The circles of Smooth White and Grapesicle were cut with Circle Stax 1 and 2.  The Horizontal Stitched Strip panel and flowers (Blueprints 19) were cut from Blu Raspberry and stamped in Blu Raspberry ink with the Burlap Background and Diamonds and Dots Borders stamp.  The sentiment is from Birthday Sentiments and stamped in Grape Jelly ink on a panel cut with Blueprints 19.  I stuck the panel back in the die and cut the two top corners like a tag, punched a hole and added Baker's Twine.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Merry Monday #126 - Have a Holly Jolly Season

I have had a lot of family stuff and a doctor's appt. this week and this is the first time I have been able to make a card.  My card is for the Merry Monday #126 challenge to make the sentiment the star of your Christmas card.
For my card I used all My Favorite Things products except the DSP from Little Yellow Bicycle Making Merry 6x6 pad and the Santa hat from a Cottage Cutz die.  I added a tiny pompom at the end of the hat. The sentiment panel is cut with the Textile Rectangle die from Smooth White CS and stamped the sentiment from Grand Holiday Greetings in Electric Red ink.  I also cut two of rectangles in red and cut them half (1 lengthwise and 1 crosswise) to make the mat for the sentiment. The mats are Electric Red CS and the base is Smooth White CS.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Christmas

I combined two challenges to make my card - MFTWSC192 and Merry Monday #125.
MFTWSC193
The sweet image is from Penny Black Mimi's Christmas set.  The card base is MFT Smooth White CS, the mats are SU Basic Black and the DSP is from Echo Park's 'Tis The Season 6x6 pad.  The image is stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and Promarkers, and then cut out with MFT Pierced Circle Dies.   I sponged around the edges with light blue ink and then added a little torn snow hill at the bottom.  The mat is cut with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle die.  The sentiment is from MFT Happy Christmas and then cut out with MFT Fishtail Flags Layers Die and Pierced Fishtail Flags for the black mat.  I put both pieces back in the dies and cut the opposite ends.  The red flag at top is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 15 dies.  I tied a button with Jute Twine and added it to the flag.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Not a Card

It's Friday and time for another challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and we are to make a "non card project". The winner will get 7 digi images of their choice from Bugaboo Stamps.
I used the cute Deacon-Christmas Elf Presents image and printed him on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Copics.   The sentiment is from MFT Christmas Ornaments set.  The DSP is from a DCWV Christmas Mat Stack.  The tag is made with SU Read Red CS and the Scallop Tag Punch.  I made it wider than the 2" slot and slid it up under the guide to punch the top and then rounded the corners.  I added some ribbon and a jute cord bow.

Now check out all the great creations by the Design Team members over at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  I hope you will join us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Seize The Birthday - Sweet Treats


Happy Thursday my friends.  It is time for another challenge over at Seize the Birthday and this week we have the "toppings" option of "Sweet Treats".
I stamped this sweet image PI-Hello Cupcake from My Favorite Things on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics.  I paper-pieced her dress and inked around the edges for some dimension.  The sentiment is from MFT's Sweet Birthday Wishes.  I cut it out with MFT's Pierced Fishtail Flags Die and ran it back through to cut the flag end on the other end.  It is mounted with foam tape.  The stripe DSP is from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 pad.  The pink dotted DSP is from Recollections Little Princess pad.  I added some enamel dots by My Mind's Eye.

Now check out all the "sweet" cards by my fellow teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Mojo Monday 361

This is my second post today.  Please scroll down for my Merry Monday card.

I finally got to play along with the Mojo Monday #361 sketch.  This is the first time in awhile I have played along.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:
I used Verve Plain Jane Birthday to You for the sentiment and Verve One Person (discontinued) for the flower (one of my favorite flowers that I use a lot).  The DSP is from Pebbles Front Porch 6x6 pad.  I stamped the flower on some of the DSP twice and cut out the smaller layer and mounted with foam dimensionals, and added a Recollections Enamel Dot.  I stamped the leaves separtely on white and inked them with a couple of different inks to get the shade I wanted.  I pierced the edges of the sentiment panel and added some SU Riding Hood Red ribbon (retired).  The mats are also Riding Hood Red CS.  The card base and sentiment panel are MFT Sweet Tooth CS.

Thanks for stopping by.
