My Favorite Things, Sketch 229

Here is my version of this week's sketch at My Favorite Things Card Challenge blog. It is also my first attempt at stamping and foiling, which I'm pleased with for the most part. I'll have to play around a little more with foiling sentiments though, as you can see. Overall, I like how my first project turned out. :)

 The sketch:

I used the diagonal stitched rectangle frames, blueprints 22, and you gnome me stamp set by My Favorite Things (links below).

Here's a closer view of the disappointing result of foiling the sentiment. The triangle background is from the geo borders stamps by My Creative Time. I will have to do some practicing to find the right type of sentiment to use next time.

If you're interested in checking out stamping and foiling techniques, check out this video by Jennifer McGuire. Thanks for coming by today! :) Hope you are enjoying a pleasant long weekend.

It's a wedding challenge

This week's prompt at CAS*ology is WEDDING. Here's my attempt at a wedding themed card. I apologize for the crappy photography; it's not easy getting a good shot of super shiny silver paper! For what it's worth.....

The heart stamps are from the Puffy Hearts Just for you stamp set. Pretty border from Build a Post Card, and the sentiment from Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments.

Thanks for coming by the studio! :)

Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

It's Anything Goes time with Paper Smooches, SPARKS blog challenge. I used the Bee Mine stamps and dies, and made a beehive shaker. In addition, I put the chubby bee on an action wobble! Lots of fun going on in this one card. Also, the sentiment is from another Paper Smooches set, Cyber Cafe.

Here's a little closer view of the beehive shaker and bee. I colored the bee with copic markers and, while it doesn't show in the photo, I colored the wings with Wink of Stella glitter pen. The tree branch is a stamp by My Creative Time.

He wobbles! :)

A 'sort of' graduation card

Grandboy, Feliciano, is moving on to 5th grade next year. :) His school is K-4th grade so they won't be having a "real" graduation, but will celebrate with a "moving on" party for his class. I thought this adorable owl by Kadoodle Bug Designs was the perfect little guy for his card. Isn't he the cutest!? Not only can you pick up this file for free, yeah, I said, FREE! but right now EVERYTHING on the website is $1.00 during the GRADUATION SALE! Go pick up some of the cutest svgs around....after you leave a comment here of course! ;) Have fun shopping!

I used stickles to add sparkle to the tassle, glossy accents for the eyes, and copic markers to enhance the shading a bit. And what 4th going into 5th grader wouldn't like gold stars! :) Star dies and sentiment by My Creative Time.

Super love adding dimension using, what else, foam tape! Thanks for coming by the studio.

MFT Color Challenge 21

Hello Monday crafters. I have a new color combo for you today....first, though, I don't know how to get rid of the shadow behind the card that is making the wall look purple!! Weird. But anyway, here is my card and all the lovely details. (See image at the end of this post for color chart.)

I decided to use kraft for my card base. This seemed to make the pretty pink tones pop, I think. And you know how much I love pink, if you know me AT ALL! LOL The banners are all from the My Favorite Things Fishtail Flags STAX die set. The cross-stitched edge circle is also by My Favorite Things, as are the leaf branch and sentiment. 

The bird, which I cut from gold foil cardstock, is from the Teresa Collins Cricut Cartridge, December 25th. It comes with a holly branch, but I snipped that part off to use with this leaf branch instead.

Product List:
My Favorite Things, Cross Stitched Edge Circle dies
My Favorite Things, Fishtail Flags STAX dies
My Favorite Things, Pretty Poppies stamp set
My Favorite Things, Wild Greenery leaf dies
My Favorite Things, Pink Lemonade cardstock

Oink, oink - that's pig for happy birthday! ;)

Had to share this card using the adorable Cutie Katoodles Girl Piggy svg cut by Kadoodle Bug Designs! If you are a blog follower (and if you aren't, why not?! ;) ) you know how I love polka dots and pink. So it seemed only fitting I would use pink polka dot paper for the sweet piggy.

Because it's a birthday card, I altered her just a tiny bit by trading her ear of corn for a present, and her hair bow is replaced by a party hat, from the Yummy Beary Bear set.

Thanks for visiting the studio! Sorry for my absence of late. Been working on a really big project that I hope to be sharing in the next couple of weeks.

Melonheadz Design Team

Happy Monday and welcome to the latest Melonheadz Challenge. Please join me and the rest of the Design Team for "Add Sparkle!" Who doesn't love sparkle!??

First up is my people shaped card. I so relate to this girl, especially on a Monday, amirite!?? LOL This image is a freebie file from a few years ago. I just love her! She isn't exactly sparkly, but her coffee cup is!

While you can't see it in the images, I also used clear glitter Wink of Stella in her hair and on her bunny slipper ears. It's very cute, sorry I wasn't able to capture it here. I used my Cricut Explore to make the card, welding two images back to back, mirroring one of them. I cut the colored image separately and slightly smaller, then adhered it to the front of the card.

My inside message is made using three stamp sets; Verve stamps, Better With You (coffee ring stain) and My Creative Time, Family is Everything and All You Need is Coffee to create my one of a kind sentiment.

I didn't stop there though! I have another project for you today as well. A scrapbook page! Been so long since I did a layout and I really enjoyed putting this one together. I used the Little Miss Kindergarten Cinco de Mayo Part 1 bundle. Notice the touches of stickles on the banner, maracas, sombrero and salsa set. Love that stuff for adding just a bit of sparkle! Nikki's images are so adorable and embellishing them is only part of the fun. I can't wait to add pics to my scrapbook page.

I love the cute title, and added the little sombrero for extra fun.

The super cute banner and maracas are also part of this colorful digi set... are the bowls of chips and salsa. Cute cute cute!! All images are printed in color and stickles accents added.

Thanks for coming to the studio today. I hope you'll join me and the team for this fun challenge! Be sure to visit the Melonheadz Etsy Shoppe for tons and tons of fun digi images to play with!!

Various stamps by Stampers Anonymous, Bo Bunny, Jaded Blossom
