Bearing Gifts – MFT Sketch Challenge 460

Hi Angels!

Thought I’d pop in tonight with a sketch challenge. The month & all it’s busyness is winding down, which is a good thing since I needed to clear my schedule to care for my asthma flare.

When I started seeing the samples from My Favorite Things Christmas sELFies stamp set, it made it’s way to my house as it was just too cute. Here is what I came up with for this week’s sketch:

Yep, cute, clean & simple and I forgot how much fun spattering can be. I think one of our November classes is on it’s way to be a spattering class since I used it on last nights card too.

To create this card I also used MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes & Fishtail Flag Trio Die-namics. And did I mention before how much I love MFT Blu Raspberry cardstock? The color is fabulous! The spattering is done with thinned white acrylic paint & a toothbrush.

I hope you enjoyed this quick sketch card. Find sometime to take care of yourself this week. The holiday season is upon us & it’s easy to get super busy & not find time to rest.

Thanks for stopping by.

My Favorite Things Sketch 453

Hi Angels!

I am beyond tired but still headed out to the studio to play. Figured I would do a bits & pieces card ended up working this week’s MFT Sketch.

I did a play off my over the top card with the poppies from a couple of days ago. Here is what I came up with…..

Same MFT Etched Flower background but just stamped this time. I pulled a Colorburst watercolor powder scrap from my background box for the Poppy Blooms and added a sentiment from Well, Hello cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics. Overall a clean & simple, easy to create beautiful card.

Stay tuned for more stamp company fun. I do like challenges & challenging myself to create with one company’s products for a week is fun.

Find some creative time this weekend. It’s a great stress reliever.

Wish – MFT Sketch Challenge 448

Hi Angels!

I’m back with another My Favorite Things project for Wild & Wonderful Summer day 63. I was out running most of the day & didn’t really have a solid idea for today’s card. I was poking around on Facebook & saw the challenge so decided it was fairly easy so let’s do this…..

I went to poke around in my stash of MFT goodies & my 1st inspiration was a retired background stamp called Patterned Triangles Background. I didn’t want my card to have a plain background so that spurred the inspiration for the card. I also grabbed Bitty Birthday Wishes stamp set & the Wish Die-namics.

I wanted an ombre type background so grabbed one of my custom Create-a-Palettes. To get the matching background color for the Wish die cut, I swiped the ink pad over my mini 5 x 7 Gel Press & picked up the color with a piece of cardstock. For the corner stripes I added 3 matching cardstock colors to the inks in the ink pad. I stamped in black ink then in clear pigment & embossed in clear sparkle mix. Some crystal sequins add the finishing touches to this birthday card.

Thanks for stopping by. Find some time this weekend to try this challenge or maybe another one you have been thinking of doing. It’s always fun to challenge yourself in your creating.
