MFT Sketch 329

It's another Sketch challenge at the MFT Challenges blog. I enjoyed making this card for a friend and, although I adjusted the sketch a bit, it helped me come up with a great layout!  Here is the original sketch:


Here is the card I made:


I flipped the sketch and put the vertical strips on the right side rather than the left.  I also eliminated the small circle element. But I think the sketch is still pretty evident. And I think this is the first time I have used a Pure Innocence image (although it is an older one, but she's so darn cute!!) Oh and the sentiment is from the Sweet Sloths stamp set.

Thanks for popping by and taking a look!

Let's Kick it with MFT

This week I'm playing along again with the MFT Sketch Challenge. I had to break open my new set, Ninja-mazing because, well because they're just so darn cute!

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:


I know! Can you handle the cuteness? The star printed paper was a scrap I had. I stamped the ninja on kraft cardstock and then colored him with Copic markers and added some white pencil highlights.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!

MFT Sketch Challenge 325

I recently splurged on some new stamps and couldn't wait to start playing with them! Buuutttt.....it turns out that the MFT Sketch challenge I wanted to participate in was screaming for an older set and you know how it is - when the stamps are calling your name, you go with it! New stamps will just have to wait their turn!

Here's the sketch for this week:


And here's my take on it, using the BBD set Every Day is a Picnic:



I also used the colors for the MFT Color Challenge which are Safety Orange, Cranberry Cocktail, Tropical Teal and Tangy Orange. This little gal was super fun to color and I haven't had a chance to stamp in awhile so it felt good chilling out with some Copic markers!

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine PigWit

This month I am playing along with the Stamp of the Month challenge at From the Heart Stamps. I love this little guy from Hogs and Kisses and thought it would be the perfect Valentine for my son.


I randomly placed the digital kiss image on my background in Photoshop and printed it out and then colored the kisses with a pale gray Copic marker. A little blue was added to the xoxo's on the tags. PigWit himself was printed and colored with a variety of Copics also, cut into a square and mounted on an angle over my background. The inside of the card sports the phrase Hogs and Kisses which is included in this adorable digi set.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope to find more time to play soon!

MFT sketch challenge #314

Well it has been a long time since I have posted here!!  I haven't even been creating much in the past year. That's not entirely true - I've been creating vinyl car decals for sale in my Etsy shop and I've even gotten back to scrapbooking a little bit. But stamping? Not very much. But recently I reacquainted myself with My Favorite Things stamps and had to buy a few ca-ute sets and this year, I hope to play along with a few of their challenges.

This is the first sketch challenge of 2017 and I combined it with the color challenge as well. Here's the colors:


And the sketch we're working with is:


And finally, here's my card, using the Recipe for Happiness stamp set:


I'm putting this one aside for my husband for Valentine's Day. Isn't he cute (just like my hubby!!)?

Thanks for popping by - I hope to share here more often in 2017 or friend me on Facebook.
