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!

WCMD with MFT – Challenge #2

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!

I killed a kit!

When I was at crop & create a couple of weeks ago, I got a kit when I attended Vicki Boutin’s cluster class.  It was just a small kit, made up mostly of the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee.  I finally put that puppy to bed.

Besides the 3 layouts ( 1 Single & 1 double from the class) I managed to get in another single layout and 4 cards.  I probably could have stretched another one or two cards as I have a few die cuts and some of the rub-ons left and one 3.5 x 5 strip of paper! LOL However, I called it a day and figured I got the just of it. 🙂

I will be sharing the projects over the next week, so here is a card that I made, which I put together for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week.

MFT Sketch #327 #mftstamps

I did add some extra sequins for my card just to bring in some more of that gold from the rub on at the top. The alphas came with the kit as well and they are American Crafts.

I hope you like it!

A bright sunshiny day

That unfortunately does not seem to be something that we are going to have here in Calgary today.  It’s still a bit cloudy and cool today.  The last vestiges of winter are still lingering around.  I wish they would just go already.

Today’s challenge at Use it Tuesday is All About Spring.  It’s time to break out the flowers, the bright colors, the sunshine, all the good stuff.  As always you need to use up some of your stash so make sure you let us know in your post what you used.

I finally have used up all of the Lil Sprout collection by Crate Paper so here is my final project.  The stamp set is one from my stash that I don’t use enough by My Favorite Things.  It comes with its own sentiment as well.  I just used my spellbinders and inked it up with some Tim Holtz ink.  The bling is from my stash as well. I hope you like it.

Ginger Snap Scraps Day 2 Blog Hop

Welcome to day 2 of the Ginger Snap Scraps Blog Hop.  I hope that you have been enjoying yourself so far and checking out all of the talented ladies.  If this is your first day hopping, you want to head over to Ginger Snap Scraps and start with yesterday’s post so you don’t miss out on anything!  You should have arrived here today from Paula’s blog.  (I’ll post the entire blog list at the end of this post today).

To help celebrate Cory’s new adventure opening her store, a bunch of us have got together to create projects highlighting some of the great (and totally familiar) names that she carries.  Even better she has some of the best prices that I have seen in an online store ANYWHERE!  Did you know she has Cricut cartridges on for $35 and less!

On to today’s project.  I have another card for you.

I found this really cute stamp from My Favorite Things!  I had forgotten I even had it but it is just so darn cute!  I colored her with Copics (did you know Cori sells copics for $6.99 each! that is such a steal!)  The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Clementine line.  A little bit of twine (she has wicked colors from The Twinery) and some border punching.  I did all my inking with Tim Holtz’s distress inks (again great price and great colors.  I actually had to pick some up that I didn’t have myself).  The flowers are just some I had in my stash so not sure where they came from.

To celebrate, I am offering a $10 gift certificate to GSC so that you can pick up a couple of great items of your won.  To enter, you have to leave a comment on both today’s and yesterdays blog posts.  You don’t have to be a follower, but I would love it if you were and I’ll give you an extra entry to play with. I’ll draw the winner on Monday April 9th and announce it here on the blog so make sure you leave me a way to contact you please.

Thanks for stopping by and now you are off to visit Vicki to see what great project she has for you today!

Here’s the blog list for you
