My Favorite Things Card Design Contest

Once again I am entering a card in the  My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar contest.  I am entering this card in the Clean and Simple category.





Supplies used on card:  Birthday Speech Bubbles, You Make My Tail Wag, Happy Hippos and Fresh Squeezed Chevron  Pack, MFT cardstock


 
 
I don't make many one layered cards, so this was a challenge for me.  I like this little hound dog stamp and thought it would be fun to use on a birthday card. My Favorite Things  has a lot of nice birthday stamp sets, but I thought I would combine a few stamp sets to create this card.
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!

Poppystamps Challenge - Bling

     Today I am playing along with the monthly Poppystamps Challenge.  The challenge for this month is to using bling, such as sequins, glitter and gems. 






For  my card I used the Gentle Leaf Collage as well as the Birthday Sentiments stamp set from Memory Box.  The alphabet dies are from Altenew.  It's always a  challenge to me to find images for a male card since I have a house full of boys.  So when the saw the leaf collage die I thought it would be perfect for so many occasions for a male themed card.   To start with, I used dark brown cardstock and backed the leaf die with blue dotted glitter paper.  Blue metallic paper  was used for the dad sentiment and gold metallic ink to stamp happy birthday.  Blue sequins were used to  accent the card.  I was happy with how the card turned out.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!

MFT Color and Sketch Challenges

     Once again I made a card for the My Favorite Things weekly color and sketch challenges.   For the challenges I used the Kitschy Kitchen stamps and dies along with the Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges 2 dies.










 
I highlighted the stamped images by brushing a light layer of  Berrylicious  ink in the background. The blue paper is from  the Tranquil Textures paper pack.  I never would have thought to use these colors together, but I really this color combination and I'm glad I gave this challenge a try.
 
Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!

MFT Weekly Challenges

     I decided to play along with the challenges at My Favorite Things this week.  Those challenges are the sketch challenge and color challenge






 
To create this card, I used the flower dies from the Sensational Stitched Flowers card kit.  Rather than cut the flowers out of colored cardstock, I cut the flowers out of white cardstock and colored with Pan Pastels.  This way I could have some color variations on the flowers.  Foam adhesive  was added between the flower layers to make them stand out.  The sentiment was cut from several colors of card stock and glued  together for added dimension.  A few black dots finished off the card.
 
Thanks so much for visiting and have a good day!

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge - 332

     Today I have a card to share that I made for this week's sketch challenge at My Favorite Things.  With Mother's Day this weekend I decided to use a spring theme for this card.








 
  To create this card I used the Spring Tulips stamp set along with the Pierced Oval Fame dies.  The patterned paper came from the Sorbet Dots and Stripes paper pack.  Foam adhesive  gave the card just enough dimension to make the flowers pop out from the card. 
 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Pin- Sights Challenge

          Today I have a card to share that I made for the
Pin-Sight Challenge at Ellen Hutson.  I loved the soft pastel colors in the photos below and  decided to give the challenge a try.





 
To make the card I used the Bed of Roses  and the Be-YOU-Tiful dies from Essentials by Ellen.  The ombre background was made using Peerless watercolors, and vellum was used to highlight the sentiment.  This rose die is so pretty and depending the colors you use, it can take on many different looks.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good day.
