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 🙂

Just Because

Wow, here we are and it’s almost the end of August! Raise your hand if you think this summer is flying by! Soon it will be time for fun fall projects! 🙂

In the meantime,  head on over to the Brown Sugar Challenges blog and check out this week’s challenge!  We are being sponsored by Melonheadz!

Melonheadz

I was pretty excited because I’ve never worked with Melonheadz images before and they are just so cool!

Our theme this week is to try something new! It could be a new stamp, scrappy item, technique….

For me, I decided to use a new die from Taylored Expressions that I’ve had for a bit but never used!  I also received this new DP from a swap that I did recently.

 

 

I think it is a fun little card and I hope you like it.

Also, we are having a Design Team Call!  You can check out all the deets here!

World Card Making Day!

So this is the first time in a long time where I am able to participate in World Card Making Day!  I am going to be surfing around blog land trying to find challenges to do!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps has a weekly challenge to help celebrate…it’s holidays! Create a card for any holiday and bonus if you use their sketch of the month (which I did of course!)

 

 

So I decided to do a Halloween card!

Zelda the Zombie!

I have a lot of Halloween supplies but don’t do near enough layouts or cards with them!  I used the KKS stamp Zelda Zombie for mine…the paper and embellishments I don’t know the manufacturer for as I just have bits and bobs in my folder!  The die cut is Taylored Expressions though!  It’s a fun little die and this is the first time I’ve used it!  Crazy!

I colored with my copics of course!  I’m still learning coloring so pardon the not so smooth look!  LOL

I hope you like it and I hope you are playing along with challenges today!

Thank you for your Service

It’s the long weekend here in Canada.  Almost my entire house is sick.  Yuk!

Our new challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.

The theme is to create a Memorial Day (for our US friends) project….perhaps it is something that you do over the long weekend, like picnics & fireworks, camping…is it the theme of brotherhood and family, or do you have a special someone that serves in the armed forces.  We want to see what you create.

 

As well, we have a wonderful sponsor, BUGABOO STAMPS!

As a Canadian,  I am given many rights and privileges that would not be possible without those that serve in our armed forces.  For that I extend my most humblest and sincerest thanks and admiration.  Without you I could not be a free me.  For my project this week, I have chose to honor those who serve.

Now of course I did it in Red and White 😉  The image is Bugaboo’s Kidlet Army which I think is just adorable.  I used my Taylored Expressions die for the white background.  The red star behind the image is a Spellbinders.  The Stars and sentiment are from Stampin Up.  I hope you enjoy the card and please come by the blog and play along for a chance to win.

Have a wonderful long weekend everyone!

Hopping down the Bunny Trail

Hello!  It’s almost that time can you believe it??? Easter will soon be here.  I need to start thinking of what the Easter bunny is going to bring my little guy 🙂

Our challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week is inspired by the film HOP

The theme, is Easter.  What does it make you think of?  Chocolate, cute chicks and bunnies? Eggs or just pretty pastel colors. Whatever it is, we want to see it.  Besides some great DT inspiration for you this week, we have a wonderful sponsor for this week’s challenge so you definitely want to check out the blog for this one!

Here’s my card for this week.  I really loved this House Mouse image that I’ve had for awhile.  It was nice to pick up my Copics again for some fun coloring and I’m just thrilled with the Taylored Expression Dies…love em!
