Using a fantastix I dipped it in sour apple and drew the stems. Happy is die cut in black using the Happy Duo die-namic. My sentiment is from Pearls Of Wisdom. I added some pearls and Wink Of Stella and mounted it all on a Persimmon card base.

ENTRY for MFT Sketch Challenge 230.

When deciding what to do in designing this card I knew I wanted to use the MFT Fishnet Cover up, I had just received in the mail, and inlay cardstock. Stamping MFT start each day with a whee in brown memento ink on Neenah Solar White and coloring with Copics. The little girl was fussy cut and adhered to a tag cut with MFT Blueprints from SU Chocolate Chip. I used MFT Blueprints 25 and cut the banner out and embossed the sentiment with Ranger detail white embossing powder. The tag is popped up with fun foam and I added some pearls.

My Favorite Things Meets PageMaps

My cardstock mostly came from American crafts summer 6x6 paper pad. Using My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 25 to cut the red swiss polka dot cardstock.  I then used Ellen Hutsons Folk Heart dies and My Favorite Thing Pierced Heart Stax to cut and in lay the hearts. I took a piece of white ribbon and tied it around one side of the large heart. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things  All My Love and embossed with ranger detail white embossing powder. I decided to add the three buttons for a little something extra.

Entry For MFT Sketch Challenge 229.

Using the sketch challenge as my inspiration for my awsome mom's birthday card. I cut the MFT Upsy Daisy Die-namics out of Neenah Solar White and colored them with Copics. The sentiment is from MFT Celebrate You stamp set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using the M.I.S.T.I.  Choosing a strip of black swiss dot cardstock I used the small scallop border from MFT Blueprints to cut the edge. I then popped it up on fun foam, assembled my flowers and arranged them on the strip. To finish things off I added some hot pink mini pearls.

Entry for MFT Sketch Challenge 228.

My mom came by and I was showing her some of my treasures. She asked me what I used ducting tape for. After cutting the water pail and gardening tools out from the fucting tape with MFT Spring Garden Die-namic set I didn't want to waste them being they were so shiney and cute. My gnomes from the MFT You Gnome Me and are colored with Copics and fussy cut. I cut the green cardstock using blueprint 20 by my favorite things and basic border and edges also by MFT. I wanted my sentiment to curve around the red circle that I cut out of MFT cross stitch circle stax so I pulled out my M.I.S.T.I and my grided alignment hexagon and embossed with Ranger fine detail white to get the results I wanted. the green cardstock, red, and the floral prints are all popped up with fun foam.

My Entry For Sketch Challenge 227

I wanted to make a card for my boyfriends kids to give their mother. I had my Simon Says Stamp Stamp May card kit sitting on the table and thought that the papers look like Mother's Day card material even though the kit is more of a wedding theme kit. taking a piece of cream cardstock that came with the kit I made my card base and stamped it with Stampin Up Papillion Potpourri butterflies in Stampin Up soft sky ink and Simon Says Stamps new color pale blush pink. it needed a little something else so I put dots of two way glue down and gold  embossed them. Using one of the prints from the card kit I cut a fishtail at the end of the strip and also did the same thing with the dark grey cardstock and a piece of Stampin Up vellum. the sentiment on the vellum is from Stampin Up all year cheer and is embossed in gold. The blush pink strip and the two dots are cut using MFTs blueprints 9 and the dark grey was hand cut. Lexi and the boys were tickled to death to have this to give to her mother along with a Stampin Up stamp set and of my favorite things Die-namics die.

Happy Moo-ther's Day card

My Mother's loves animals of all types and My Favorite Things just had this awsome release. I thought I would get creative and make a card using these incredible products but I needed a mother's day sentiment. While out delivering the mail my little brain was just going and it came to me. HAPPY MoO-tHeR's DAY, and the inside  sentiment? I UDDERLY LOVE YOU. So now how to pull this off.
I pulled out MFT The Whole Herd and decided to use the letters in the sentiments, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Neenah Solar White and create the one I wanted. I pulled out my MISTI and masked off the letters and after a couple tries I did it.
Using Tim Holtz Broken China and a blending tool I created my sky. I then cut all my elements out using MFT'S Rolling Hills, Barn, and Grassy Fields. The cow is from The Whole Herd colored with Copics and the farm girl is from BB Green Pastures also colored with Copics.
Now for assembly.  The Stampin'up Old Olive hill was placed behind the Stampin'up Mossy Meadow one. The sentiment was fussy cut, placed on a square of Neenah cardstock and mounted behind the barn doors. I attached the rest of the barn elements and pope it up with Stampin'up dimensionals. I placed the cow to the left also popes up and added some grass. The inside sentiment was fussy cut along with the farm girl and placed on the inside. I then grounded her with some grass.
I love the results and hope my mother does also.

My Entry For MFT Color Challenge 20

Unfortunately I had a customer pass away sunday. I wanted to make his widow a card to express my sympathy for her loss.

I pulled out my Lavender Fields, Wild Wisteria, Lemon Chiffon, and Daffodil MFT ink pads. I used these colors and Stampin' Ups Beautiful Bunch to create the floral paper. Using Stampin' Up Label thinlets I cut the floral paper, lavender fields and neenah solar white. The butterflies were cut using Stampin' Up Beautiful Butterflies thinlets folder. After stamping my sentiment and layering it all up, I mounted it on a Lemon Chiffon card base. Initially I didn't particular like the color combo. It was just too easter eggy or something,  but I figured it is a challenge so let's see what we can do. I ended up loving the results. I guess that is the point of the challenges, to make you create.
