Thank You {SSSC187}

Hi there! It's Sweet Sunday Sketch time and Karen has a GREAT sketch for you to play with this week! I hope you'll get the chance to play along.

It has been FOREVER since I have stamped and I was RUSTY! I was/am in desperate need of mojo, but I managed to get a card made despite my lack of mojo!  HA!

I used some brand new goodies from MFT's latest release. The stamps set I used are Blissful Butterflies, Art Expression Text, Western Backgrounds. The Die-namics I used are Blissful Butterflies, Blueprints 3, Blueprints 4, Open Scallop Doily Duo,and Mini Tabs Foursome. I also went with my favorite color combo of Orange Fizz, Kraft and white. I'm not a fan of orange normally, but I LOVE it paired with Kraft and white, so I went with it :)

Here is this week's sketch:

Don't forget to check out the samples from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team:

Mixed Media Teaser Day 6!

Hi there! We're up to the sixth day of Teasers from My Favorite Things and today we have some more goodness to share with you!

Head on over to the MFT Blog for all of the details and to find out how you can win big just for commenting!

So I did something I swore I would never do....Mixed Media. To be honest, I just didn't "get it". But after seeing what some of the MFT Design team has done with Mixed Media, I had to at least give it a try. So I made a card. Getting messy was kind of fun :)

I started with a piece of Mixed Media paper that I cut using the new Blueprints 4 Die-namics. I painted it with Gesso and when dry, added some modeling paste over drywall tape. When that was dry, I painted the entire surface with some Martha Stewart Putty paint. Over that I added some more modeling paste using the new Graduated Diamonds Stencil. That modeling paste is the coolest stuff. The diamonds have so much dimension! The layer under the roses was cut with one of the rectangular dies from Blueprints 1.  It was stamped with the new Art Expression Text background in Kraft Ink.

The roses are from Mona's new set, Blooming Roses and the Rose Bouquet Die-namics. They were stamped in Kraft Ink and then in Hot Fudge.  The leaves were stamped in Sour Apple. The sentiment is from Peaceful Wildflowers and was stamped on a Sentiment Strip in Hot Fudge Ink.

Here are the products I used on my card today:

MFT June Teasers - Day 1!

Hi there and welcome to the June Teasers from My Favorite Things!  We have a FANTASTIC release this month! You won't want to miss a thing!

Head on over to the MFT Blog for all of the release details and to see how you can win big!!

Today I've got a card to share using Lisa Johnson's new set, Blissful Butterflies and Art Expression Text. L.O.V.E. They are both beautiful!  I've also used the coordinating Blissful Butterflies Die-namics,  the new Blueprints 4, Blueprints 3, Circle STAX Set 1, and the Open Scallop Doily Duo.

I stamped the butterflies in Bubblegum and Kraft inks. The script at the bottom is from the new Art Expression Text background set and was stamped in Bubblegum ink. I used my favorite wood grain stamp from Western Backgrounds in Bubblegum and Kraft inks.  The card stock I used is the new Primitive White.  The Open Scallop Doily was cut from vellum card stock because I wanted a really soft look to go with the shabbiness of my card. The butterflies were finished with some pink adhesive pearls.
