MFT Sketch Challenge 333


Today I am sharing a card using this sketch from My Favorite Things:

I started with a green card stock base and added a layer of patterned paper. This paper is from The Stamps of Life Together Paper Pad. It is bright and bold! I chose some other pieces of paper, also from TSOL, and cut those at an angle to complete the sketch.

Since I was using a lot of patterns, I decided to cut out bold words, Hugs and Friend.

I added yellow paper to the back to help the words stand out. I finished it off with coordinating ribbon.Very bright and cheery. Just what I want for a friend who needs a hug!

Thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink Create Along with Us


Hope you are having a great day!

I wanted to share a card I created to participate in Create Along with Us May 2017. Each month Papertrey Ink lets us share a card we made based on something we spotted during the Release countdown.

The card that caught my eye is from Stephanie Gold.

I began with a Kraft base and used the PTI Vertical Cover Plate and white card stock to create the top layer. I am still in need of graduation cards so I chose Large and small sketched stars to be my focal point in the the top left corner.

The banner was cut in white using the Quilted tag die. The sentiment is from an Avery Elle set.

I added some yellow and white twine to finish it off. I think in the picture it is rather boring but in real life it looks better! : )

Thanks for stopping by!

Foil Rainbow with Papertrey Ink and DecoFoil


I wanted to share a card I made using a stencil and Transfer Gel.

The stencil is from Papertrey Ink - the Make It mini Sunshine & Rainbows. After applying the Transfer Gel using a palette knife, I let it dry until clear.

Then I laid Rainbow colored Decofoil on top of the image and ran it through my laminator on the 5mm setting.

Here is what I got from that process:

I mounted it onto a base of Vintage Jadeite from PTI.

Before mailing, I will add a small sentiment to the front.

You can see several more examples of this technique (it is really fun!) click HERE.

Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search - June


Just stopping by to quickly share a card I made to participate in the PS Guest Designer Search - June.

This card features several Paper Smooches stamp sets - CalicoDelightful Greetings and Botanicals 3.

I just really wanted to stamp, no die cutting allowed in the craft room today! : )

I pulled out my Lawn Fawn inks and stamped the sentiments. Next I stamped assorted flowers around and lastly stamped the green leaves.

Twine was tied on and a trio of pink iridescent sequins were added next.

Lawn Fawn card stock was used as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bravo Card


I am continuing to work on graduation cards and I wanted to share another one today.

I am entering the MFT Card Challenges Sketch #332.  I am really enjoying these sketches because they help me make cards quickly. I often sit and think and nothing comes to mind but it is much easier with the help from My Favorite Things!

I cut a piece of patterned paper from The Stamps of Life Friends Paper Pad to 5.5 x 3.75. I mounted this on a piece of Pixie Card stock

Using Avery Elle Sweet Scallops, I cut the oval with midnight and pixie card stock.

The Bravo was stamped with navy ink. 

I die cut the banner from MFT Blueprints 8 and stamped the sentiment.

Lastly, I added three small wooden stars.

Thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #284 Background Stamping with Sentiment Stamps


Today I am sharing a card I made for this week's PTI Make It Monday #284 Background Stamping with Sentiment Stamps.

You can watch Melissa's video to see more details.

I need thank you cards for teachers as next week is out final week of school.

I pulled out an older set, Teacher Mini Stamp Set and used the sentiments to stamp the background. This is one of the first sets I ever bought from Papertrey and it is still a favorite.

I added the white piece to a Pure Poppy card base. Next, I die cut the scalloped circle from Harvest Gold and added it on top of a circle of New Leaf. The sentiment was also cut from new Leaf using a My Favorite Things die.

Two apple shapes from Apple Mini Stamp set were cut and added on top of the circles. One was stamped with Jalapeno Lawn Fawn ink.

Finally, I added New Leaf ribbon.

I can never thank all the teachers my children have each year. They give so much of themselves and I am always grateful for all that they do!

Supplies used:
Lawn Fawn Inks
Papertrey Card stock
Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Dies
Papertrey Teacher Mini and Apple Mini set and die

I am entering this card in the following challenge:
