True Friend {MFTWSC113}

Hi there! It's Wednesday and time for the Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge from My Favorite Things!  This week's sketch is AWESOME!  You will definitely be seeing it from me again in the near future.

Head on over to the MFT Blog for a link to each designer.

I've used My Favorite Sentiments for my card today.  I've also used Die-namics Circle STAX set 1, Circle STAX set 2 and Notched Tag.  The card base and mat layers are Black Licorice cardstock.  The main image was stamped in Wild Cherry ink onto X-press It Blending cardstock, was fussy cut and popped up for dimension.  All of the patterned papers are Echo Park Love Story 6x6.

Here's the sketch:

Happy Birthday!

Hi there!  I have a fun card/pizza gift box set to share today that I made a couple weeks ago.  I actually forgot to blog it.  I don't think I've ever forgotten to blog something that I made FOR THE BLOG!  LOL! 

I started with a Mini Pizza box.  You can find the tutorial here.  SO easy and quick to make.  The pizza box is made from Blu Raspberry cardstock.  I used the following Die-namics for both projects: Heart Doily; Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose; Large Leaf-Filled Flourish.  I used the Happy Birthday stamp from this month's Triple Scoop at MFT called Western Sentiments.  The patterned paper is True Friend 6x6 by Echo Park.

MFT February Creative Challenge

Hi there and welcome to the February Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things!  This month the design team was challenged to make a clean and simple card or project.  This was quite a challenge but I mustered through!  LOL

Head on over to the MFT blog for a link to each participating designer.

I have two cards to show you today so I'll get right to it.

The first card uses the following stamp sets Say What Sentiments and LLD Journal It - Graph Paper Notes and the Die-namics Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose and Large Leaf-Filled Flourish.  Cardstock is Sweet Tooth, Bubblegum, and Gumdrop Green.  I stamped the Graph Paper in Versamark ink onto the rose before assembling.  It's subtle but adds some interest.  "Hi" was stamped in Black Licorice ink (please ignore the smudge :)

Here's a close up of the beautiful rose.

Here's the finished inside.  The sentiment is from Say What.

For the second card I used Lovey-Dovey Sentiments and LJD Hearts and Stitches.  I stamped the sentiment first in Razzle Berry ink and then a second time in Sno Cone ink.  It was fussy cut out and popped up for dimension on an Oval STAX set 1 and and Oval STAX set 2.  I cut just "my world" from the Sno Cone sentiment and popped it up for dimension.  I cut a Fishtail Flags STAX from Sweet Tooth cardstock and stamped the hearts from LJD Hearts and Stitches in Sno Cone ink.  I matted it on a Fishtail Flags Layers STAX cut from Razzle Berry ink.  The card base is Sno Cone cardstock.

Here's a look at the finished inside:

Wishing You Happiness {SSSC178}

Hi there!  It's time, once again, for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch!  LOVED this week's sketch!  Hope you get a chance to play along.

I ended up flipping the sketch to the other side to accomodate the beautiful rose I wanted to use.  I started with a Kraft base.  I chose a piece of patterned paper from the MME Bramble Rose 6x6 pad and used a Circle STAX to cut a circle from the patterned paper.  I adhered the patterned paper to Sweet Tooth cardstock and then stamped my Flower in Primrose Petals ink.  I distressed the edges and then added some zig zag and regular stitching.  The sentiment was stamped on a Fishtail Flags STAX and was finished with a crinkled silk bow.

Here's the sketch:
