You're a Ray of Sunshine! {WSC442}


Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge! This week, we are up to WSC442, and I LOVE this sketch!


I took a loose take on this week's sketch! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil and Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink to create the sun rays. I cut the "sun" from Lemon Drop Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. 

The bottom panel of the card was cut from Berrylicious Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and the center panel is a piece of patterned paper from the Party Patterns Paper Pack. LOVE. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "You're a Ray of Sunshine" from Full of Sunshine using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Sending You Oceans of Love! {CTD548}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!


It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Lynn has challenged us to use the absolutely GORGEOUS combination of pink, aqua, lavender and mint! LOVE!


I loved creating this scene! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Grapesicle Premium Dye Ink to create the cloudy background. The "water" was cut from Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock first using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then again using the Ocean Waves Die-namics. I spritzed the panel with white spray and a shimmer spray.


The mermaids and the stone were cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Mermazing Die-namics, and I stamped them using Mermazing with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and then added them to the scene. The sentiment, "Sending You Oceans of Love" was stamped using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Juts A Note To Say Hello! {CC119}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for a new MFT Color Challenge! The colors are Razzle Berry, Limelight, Steel Grey and Sweet Tooth! I LOVE!

For my card, I began with a panel of watercolor paper cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I stamped the panel using the Balloon Strings Background with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. Using Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink, Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink and Limelight Premium Dye Ink, I loosely watercolored the panel. I then trimmed it down to size and added it to a panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics.

I am still obsessed with the Well, Hello set and Sweet Hello Die-namics, and I've used them both on my card. I cut the background of the "hello" from Translucent Vellum, and then "hello" from Razzle Berry Card Stock and then layered them together. I added the die cut to my card with foam tape. The sentiment panel is a strip of Steel Grey Prestige Card Stock and I stamped "JUST A NOTE TO SAY HELLO", from Well, Hello, using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I added the sentiment panel to the card, also popping it up with foam tape, and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.


Isn't this color combination just gorgeous?

I Love You Deeply! {WSC441}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge! This week, we are up to WSC441!! I love this sketch, and created a shaker card!

I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and cut the panel again using the Square Peek A Boo Window Die-namics and added a Square Shaker Pouch. I stamped "I Love You Deeply" from Friends with Fins using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and stamped it using the Whimsical Waves Background with Versamark Ink. I then heat embossed the panel using white embossing powder. I sponged on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. I cut the dolphin from No-Line Coloring Card Sock using the Friends with Fins Die-namics, and stamped him using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Friends With Fins. I colored him with Copic Markers and added him to the wave panel. I then filled the shaker pouch with sequins and added the stamped panel. LOVE.

I LOVE these colors so much! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the pineapple from Polynesian Paradise, I stamped it repeatedly, creating a pattern, using Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Orange Zest Premium Dye Ink, Pineapple Premium Dye Ink and Green Room Premium Dye Ink.

I cut "thanks" four times from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock using the Thanks & Hello Die-namics and then layered them together. I added the die-cut word to the stamped panel. I cut strip of Pineapple Prestige Card Stock and stamped "for Your Hospitality", from Polynesian Paradise, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added the sentiment panel to the card with foam tape, and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
