I had picked up the Free Spirit We R Memory Keepers paper pack and had to create with it. The colors are so beautiful. I started off creating the postage stamps using Stampin’ Up Butterfly Basics stamp set stamped in coastal cabana, early expresso, and hello honey and embossed
on the edges in gold. The sentiment which comes from Stampin’ Up Butterfly Basics was also embossed in gold. The background piecing was cut with My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 3. Stickles fine glitter in cinnamon was added to the background. I finished it up with wink of stella, a piece of coastal cabana bakers twine and a hello honey button.
Ok what to do for the MFT Sketch Challenge. I chose the my favorite things lollipop addition birthday stamp set to make the circles. First I die cut four circles with the Distressed Hearts Frame Die-namics. I stamped them in Summer Splash, Sour Apple, and nightshift Blue which are all My Favorite Things die inks. The banner is from MFT Lollipop Addition Birthday stamped in Nightshift Blue. The birds or from MFT Tweet On You, I colored them with copics and grounded them with a piece of bakers twine I rubbed with sour apple ink to match. Now what to do with the background (hmmm, yes I work backwards) I stamped it with the HB2U from Lollipop Additions Birthday in sour apple and nightshift blue and created my own background.
When I looked at all the goodies I received from My Favorite Things I knew I had to create a brick wall with the Small Brick background stamp and put a cute little kitty on it from the I Knead You stamp set. The first thing I did was to stamp white pigment ink on red cardstock for the brick wall. Then I stamped the cat in memento tuxedo black and colored it with copics. The sky was created by blending Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink on to white card stock then I cut the Cloud Cover Die-namic out of card stock and used it as a stencil and dabbed white
pigment ink on it for clouds. I decided to add the bench, which I stamped with Stampin’ ups Hardwood, and some flower pots from the Spring Garden Die-namic. To finish it I stamped my sentiment in memento tuxedo black.
I have been waiting for my MFT You Make My Tail Wag stamp set to come in for a month due to it’s popularity. I was ex static when it came in the mail Friday so I immediately went to creating. I started with the MFT Plaid Background Builder and created the background using MFT dye ink Red Hot, Kraft, and Memento Nautical Blue. I used the Memento Nautical Blue to stamp the paw prints on white cardstock. The Die-namics Dog House was cut from red, navy blue, and kraft. I backed it with black to give it some dimension. Copic markers were used to color the dog, bowl, and stick, which are all from the MFT You Make My Tail Wag stamp set. To finish it off I used white embossing powder on navy cardstock for my sentiment.
I made this card for the MFT Sketch Challenge and decided to use the color challenge color selection. I started off by stamping the Simply Circles background stamp in Nightshift Blue on cream cardstock and cut it out with the blue prints 15 stitched rectangle. The summer splash was die cut with the Stitched Circle Frame Die-namics. The star was cut from the Pierced Star Stax Die-namics. The sentiment and hippo image are from Ellen Hutson Wish Big by Julie stamp set. I love the cards youthful masculine flair.
