What beautiful colors for this challenge blue rasberry, lemon chiffon, persimmon, and sweet tooth. Using a die from blueprints 15 I cut the stripes from persimmon and lemon chiffon. The frame is from the stitched rectangle stax and is cut out of blue rasberry and the background is sweet tooth cut using blueprints 24 Looking at the sketch I thought MFTs lollipop additions birthday would be perfect so I stamped the first layer in blue rasberry then stamped the sentiments in versafine black . I then punxhed then outvusing my SU 1 3/8 punch and popped them up on pop dots. Instead of a sentiment stamped on strip in the middle I choose to use Lawn Fawns birthday border die. Thanks for droppin in. Come back soon

From the moment I saw Mama Elephants Chance Of Rain I knew I had to stamp the umbrella upside down and put the two people in it as a boat. I had to use a little bit of masking and then colored them with copics. The waves were cut with Lawn Fawns stitches hills from SU soft sky and lost lagoon. I used the MFT Cloud Cover up the cut the clouds out. I used two different MFT Blueprint dies to make my background layers. Thanks for dropping in.

The colors for this challenge are wild wisteria, Lemon drop, razzle berry, and limelight. I started by die cutting limelight cardstock with MFT Tall Grass and the flowers from razzle berry, Lemon drop and wild wisteria. Thinking the girl with the dog from Birdie Browns You Have My Heart would look cute in the flowers, I colored her with copics and water colored her clothes with lemon drop and wild wisteria. Then I mounted them on a piece of Neenah White die cut using Blueprints 24. My sentiment is from MFT Totally Happy and stamped in razzle berry. I was trying to get more practice a using white space with this card. It was hard not putting sequins on it. Thanks for stopping in.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this sketch challenge. I had stamped some images to try the no line copic coloring, in between rounds drag racing, when it came to me. I decided the kittens from MFT's I Knead You set would be perfect. I chose a scalloped rectangle from MFT Blueprint 20 and cut my background paper. The three stitched circles were cut out of Stampin' up Tangerine Tango using Blueprints 18 and mounted on fun foam. I thought It would be cute to have real yarn run all over the card so I stamped the ball of yarn in Stampin' up Lost Lagoon and used a piece of yarn in the same color. My sentiment is stamped in Stampin' up Lost Lagoon on a piece of Neenah Solar white which was die cut using Blueprints 13. Thanks for stopping by come back soon.

I received my happy mail a couple days ago and wanted to try them out. Thought I'd start with MFT 's Count The Stars.
I got out some Neenah Solar White cardstock and made my card base, then using the MFT Bokeh Builder and Simon Says Stamp ink (doll pink, mint, orange peel) I made my background. Taking some card stock from a Simon Says Stamp card kit and a piece of gold, I die cut it using MFT'S Lucky Stars and Stars and Wishes. The word stars is layered on gold and the sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Okay what to do? It's time for my favorite thing sketch challenge 231 and I also wanted to use my June Simon Says Stamp car kit.
I use the yellow card stock from the kit to make my card base which I dry embossed with Darice ' s dot background. The green frame was cut using MFTs stitched square frames for white cardstock and colored with copics. The washing tape was put on a piece of card stock and die cut using MFTs blueprints 23. Using MFTS Happy Duo and some black cardstock I cut happy out. Using the leftover white square from cutting my frame out I stamped the sun and the sentiment using Simon Says stamps happy and smile. I added some enamel dots to the dotted background paper and stamped birthday on the washi tape and assembled my card.
