WCMD with MFT – Challenge #4

 

 

Ok, for the 4th challenge with My Favorite Things, it’s called Make & Mail.

Challenge 4: MAKE & MAIL

Make a card. Mail a card. Do it now and don’t delay. OK, OK, you don’t have to rush out the door right this second but really, make it, address it, stamp it, and pinky-swear that you’ll drop it in the mailbox the first chance you get! We trust you.

Make a card and mail it out to someone!  That’s really the purpose of making a card anyway right?? Luckily, I am in a swap where I have to mail out a card every Monday for the next 12 weeks, so this will be going out to my swap partner Pansy!

This card was made from left overs I brought back from my card class last week.  We were doing some stamping and I had a bit left over which I turned into a small one sheet wonder.  I managed to get 5 cards from a little 4.5 x 8 sheet. I really liked how this turned out.  The DP is all stamped from the Stampin Up set – Painted Harvest, and the woodgrain is a stamp as well.  Then I fussy cut one of the flowers and some leaves from the sheet.  I can’t remember which set the sentiment comes from.  I hope she likes it!

I hope you like it too.

WCMD with MFT #3 By the Numbers

Ok here’s challenge # 3 for My Favorite Things, World Card Making Day challenge.

Challenge 3: BY THE NUMBERS

Create a card that features a number in a prominent way. It can be a die-cut number, a stamped number, or even the representation of a number (five cute frogs for a favorite five-year-old’s birthday, perhaps?)

 

Here is the Silver Anniversary card I made (Pinterest Inspired).  I really like how it turned out.  It allowed me to blow the dust off of some of my older embossing folders.

The inside just says congratulations, Happy Anniversary!

I just embossed the panel and popped it up with pop dots.  I cut the 25 out of glitter paper with my Cricut and then added just a few pearls to finish it off.

Hope you like it!

Ok, here is challenge #2 for My Favorite Things World Card Making Day challenge.  

 

Challenge 2: DIE-NAMICS DESIGNS

Our noon challenge is all about die cutting. Put your stamps and inks away for a bit because you won’t be needing them for this challenge. Create a card that features 100% die cutting for a chance to win our noon prize.

Enter your card by 10 pm EDT on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

Winners will be announced Monday, October 9, 2017.

Ok luckily you don’t have to have MFT products to play along (because for some reason I don’t own any..oh the horror!).

I made a simple thank you card for this one.

The background die is from Taylored Expression and the Thank you I cut 5 times and layered together.  The die is from YNS. I also added some glossy accents to the sentiment.  The DP is just from my stash.

I hope you like it.  I’ll be back later on with challenges 3 & 4 🙂

World Cardmaking Day!

Happy WCMD everyone!

 

This weekend I am playing along with some challenges set up by My Favorite Things!

This is their first challenge:

Challenge 1: ROYGBIV

Let’s kick the day off with COLOR. Your first challenge of the day is to create a card featuring the rainbow — either a literal rainbow or, by simply integrating the colors of the rainbow into your design in any way you see fit.

I really had to think about how I was going to do this one.  So I decided on stamping! I pulled out my Pun Intended set by Stamping UP, because I thought the camera would be perfect to stamp in rainbow colors.

The great thing about this challenge is that you don’t have to use My Favorite Things products to play along (which is good because I don’t own any but would sure like to win one of their gift certificates to the store that they are giving to random challenge participants!).

So without further adieu, here is my card! I really like how it turned out!  I just added a view of the violet sequins to pair up with the orange on this card.

Don’t forget to play along for your chance to win!

An ATC

Ok, so for something different, I went with an ATC for this week’s challenge on the Brown Sugar Blog!  It’s an anything goes theme which was perfect!  I haven’t made any ATC’s  in awhile and I really thought that this image would really work well with one.

Our sponsor for this week’s challenge is Oddball Art Co

My image is called Day Dreams

dav

I just used some bits and pieces from some Simple Stories paper that I had left over and put it on an ATC back.  The stars I just punched out and the sentiment is from Tim Holtz.  I colored the image the image with copics and added just a bit of bling.

Don’t forget to stop by the Brown Sugar Blog this week to link up with us – its anything goes remember! and to see what the rest of the DT has created this week!

Hi!  Welcome to my part in the UYS summer blog hop…you should have arrived from   Christine’s blog.  If you haven’t you can go back to the start of the hop on the UYS blog so you don’t forget anyone….all the links are at the bottom of this post too, just in case you get lost!

I love summer!  Here in Calgary, in my house anyway, summer means camping and a lot of time outdoors.  We have a lot of winter here in Canada..sometimes up to 8 or 9 months of it, so when that warm weather hits, you know we are outside!

Summer always makes me think of fun, bright colors. Everything seems so much more vibrant and alive!  So for my project, I wanted to share with you some embellishments that I made in a class I took at Crop & Create with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine.   The class was hosted by one of my crafting idols Vicki Boutin!  We were using her new line of products from American Crafts and they are just so fun…there are stickers and water color stickers, die cuts, crayons and oh so much more!  These embellishments are made with fun, vibrant uses of color.  They give you the happy feeling inside and that’s what summer is all about!  Happy happy fun fun!! 🙂

We were learning to just have fun and create layers and textures to make some knock out embellishments.  Don’t throw away those scraps…instead, grab them along with some adhesive, some pop dots and whatever little bits and bobs you might have around and create some amazing embellishments while you binge watch your favorite shows!

I hope you enjoy these and I hope you will create some of your own to use on some great layouts or cards. Now you are off to Majo’s blog  to see what great summer fun she has for you but the list is below just in case you lose your way!
