Day 11, The Daily Marker + MFT Challenge

As promised, here is my finished card for Day 11. This was really fun and super easy to put together using the Outside the Box Level Up die set from My Favorite Things.

The little birds are the sweetest and so much fun to color, and the foliage is the cutest. For Day 11, I  added a few more bits of foliage as well as one of the cute little girls and the fence from the Snow Buddies stamp set (also by MFT) and a few mushrooms from Hangin With My Gnomies, another adorable set from My Favorite Things. 

Again, these box cards are so awesome because they fold flat for mailing. The recipient will be amazed!

Copic colors I used for this one were very few compared to my usual huge pile of colors. LOL The paper pad is an oldie from my stash from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found 2, Sunshine 6x6.

Day 10, The Daily Marker

Still in love with the adorable Winter Songbirds from My Favorite Things. I also love a yellow and gray color combo and was inspired by Elma Wisse to use it for today's challenge. Stay tuned tomorrow when I will post my finished box card for the final day of the coloring challenge!

Day 9, The Daily Marker Challenge and My Favorite Things challenges

Today's card is for the My Favorite Things Sketch #516 and my second card for Color challenge #153. I colored the snowmen for Day 9 of The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge and then added the foliage in the same color scheme at the MFT challenge because they are so cute and I needed a little something else to add. 

The snowmen are from the Present Time set by Birdie Brown for My Favorite Things. The foliage is from the new release, Winter Songbird.

Day 8, The Daily Marker

Continuing from Day 7, the gnomes need a home! :) 

Day 7 gnomes from yesterday

I kinda love how the finished card turned out. Another box card using My Favorite Things die sets. This one is the new release "low profile" design combined with the also new "level up" set. 

And this one also folds flat for mailing. So much fun to make, and also to receive!

Copic colors:

The pattern paper which I didn't choose until after I had colored my images, btw!, is an old 6x6 My Mind's Eye from the Lost & Found 3 collection called Oliver. I love the muted yellows and blues in this line. Oh, I just noticed the red for the ladybugs didn't make it into the picture - I used R29.

Day 6, The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

The Winter Songbird from My Favorite Things is the newest release. I fell in love with them and couldn't say no. Aren't they adorable!?? 

Products I used for these tags include the MFT Winter Songbird, Avery Elle Loads of Wishes sentiments,  Waffle Flower color combo tag die, twine and copic markers.

Day 5, The Daily Marker

Day 5 finished card. More from the new My Favorite Things release. There are SEVEN adorable little birds in the Winter Songbird stamp set, with lots of fun foliage. The wreath is a separate set but works perfectly with the foliage. 

I used the MFT Sketch #515 for this design.

The sentiment is by Avery Elle. 

Day 3 & 4, The Daily Marker

Today's card features the newest release by My Favorite Things which I positively ADORE!!! Not just the awesome new box card design (this one is called Level Up) but also these new snow kids by Birdie Brown. They are too cute!

I love the stadium affect of this design as each of the levels rises above the previous level. And, as with the other Outside the Box card designs, this folds flat for mailing. 

This stamp set is called Piles of Hugs. The snowball fight is so much fun!

Day 2, Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

I'm back with Day 2. Our challenge today is to use non-traditional holiday colors. Which is perfect as today is also the new color challenge at My Favorite Things and this month's colors are not traditionally Christmassy! I've combined the Daily Marker challenge with My Favorite Things' color AND sketch challenges today. Let's get started!

My finished project that fits all three challenges. I really like it. Hope you do as well.

The adorable snowman comes from My Favorite Things, Snow Buddies stamp set. Sentiment by Ellen Hutson from Merry Little Christmas by Julie Ebersole. 

I didn't use all the images I colored, but they'll be great for another project.
