You’re A Cheeky Monkey! {WSC321}

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

I have a card to share with you today for the current MFT Sketch Challenge, WSC321!  Such a fun sketch, I do love a sketch with a circle element!

Print

It has been FAR too long since I’ve used the darling Cheeky Monkey set!  I cut this cutie from X-Press It Blending Card using the Cheeky Monkey Die-namics, and then stamped him with Cheeky Monkey using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I then colored him,and his banana, using Copic Markers. 

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics. I added two panels of patterned paper, from the Trail Mix Paper Pack, also using Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I used the Stitched Circle Scallop Edge Frames Die-namics to cut another pattern from the Trail Mix Paper Pack, and also from Kraft Card Stock.  I trimmed down the circle panel and popped up my monkey using Foam Tape.  The sentiment panel was cut from Gumdrop Green Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped “YOU’RE A CHEEKY MONKEY” from Cheeky Monkey using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished off my card using a trio of enamel dots.

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!

It’s time for a new MFT Color Challenge, and we are up to CC64, a gorgeous color combo of Lemon Chiffon, Blue Yonder, Gravel Gray and Black Licorice! LOVE!

Print

This was a super fun card to create!  I started by cutting two panels of Smooth White Card Stock, one using the Chunky Chevron Cover Up Die-namics, the other using Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I then attached them together, and using the Chunky Chevron Cover Up Die-namics to cut Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock, Blue Yonder PRestige Card Stock and Lemon Chiffon Prestige Card Stock. I then inset the colored panels onto the Smooth White Card Stock frame, using a fun pattern.

I cut “Kind” from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Kind & Kindness Die-namics.  The cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped “I See Kindness In You”, from Kind Words, using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished of the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Happy Birthday! {CTD431}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week Amy Rysavy has challenged us to use mint green, mint, plum and light brown!  Such a gorgeous color combo!

Print

I just love the colors this week, and knew I wanted to go with flowers.  I cut flowers from Smooth White Card Stock using the Flashy Florals Die-namics and the Pretty Posies Die-namics.  I stamped the flowers using Flashy Florals and Pretty Posies using Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink, stamped off, and then stamped the centers again using Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink.  The leaves were stamped using Flashy Florals with Spearmint Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink, Field Day Premium Dye Ink and Timber Green Premium Dye Ink.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I embossed the panel using the Diagonal Stripes Stencil and Embossing Pad Duo.  I arranged the flowers and leaves onto the card front, popping them up with Foam Tape.  The sentiment panels were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Label Tape Die-namics, and I stamped “HAPPY” and “BIRTHDAY” using Label Maker Sentiments using Latte Premium Dye Ink.  I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.
