I’m playing with MFT Sketch Challenge using Not 2 Shabby’s Ghostly Greetings. I ink blended the middle section of the white cardstock with Gina K Designs Wild Lilac, Tangerine Twist, and Wild Dandelion Ink. Then I used Gina K Designs Master Layout 1 to die cut out the white cardstock, and a black mat. I used Simon Says Stamp Cute Ghosts Embossing Folder to emboss the white cardstock and glued on the ghost with Twiddler’s Nook Bat embellishments.

Fabulous Flamingo

Today I decided to color up this flamingo from Altenew Poised Flamingo. The card was inspired by MFT Sketch 555 and Time Out’s Photo.

I cut out 3 different colored strips of cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from Altenew Ornate Foliage Stamp Set onto the black cardstock with Altenew Crisp Pure White Embossing Powder. To make sure my strips were straight, I used my Misti to line the strips and used glue to adjust if needed.

A Friend Like You

I made this card inspired by My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #545.

I used MFT Cat-astrophe Stamp Set for the images and sentiment. I used watercolor to color the image and fussy cut them out. I used Waffle Flower Sunburst Stencil with GKD Wild Dandelion Ink for my larger circle. The flags were made with Concord & 9th Triple-Step Blooming Heart Die Set, and I thought it would be fun to add some paw prints on the white flag. Recently, I’ve been loving a thin, colored borderline, so I added yellow cardstock.

Coloring Challenge -Day 3

For Day 3 of the coloring challenge with The Daily Marker, I colored the Polkadoodle Honeypie Best Friends image with copic markers and tombow apt pro based markers.

Besides the color challenge, I’m also playing along with MFT Sketch Challenge #537.

Flying By

I’m playing along with MFT Sketch Challenge, MFT Color Challenge, and MFT Slimeline Challenge today. I’ve been busy working this weekend, but I was still able to squeeze some time to work on this card. I really wanted to cover the whole card with ink blended clouds, but held back. It’s always hard for me to keep things simple and not add too much onto a card.

Sketch Challenge Frenzy

I made this card for Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers’ Sketch Challenge #7. I’m loving this sketch so much that I decided to make another one. I decided to use this digital stamp from Limited Runs that I haven’t had a chance to color up yet. I like how the card is full of icicles but the sentiment is about being cozy or warm. 😉

For my second card, I used My Favorite Things Sketch #529. This adorable penguin is from Polkadoodles 2 Cute Christmas Penguins. I used both colored pencils and watercolor markers to color in this penguin.

You Make My Heart Bloom

Happy Friday! I went for a red monochromatic card look for Gina K Designs January Challenge combined with MFT Sketch #526. It was a one layer ink blending with GKD Coral Reef, Red Hot, Red Velvet, and Dark Chocolate from top to bottom. I decided to add a couple of hearts since Valentine’s is just around the corner.

I really liked this monochromatic look, and I think I will be making more with different colors. I might need to buy some more silhouette stamps from Gina K Designs, even though I told myself to stop buying any craft related things until the end of the year. I’m glad her new release was sold out, so I didn’t have to test my will power. 😂 On a side note, this reminded me of San Francisco’s red sky.

I hope you enjoyed the card as well. Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend full of crafting!

I love you tons

I’ve been taking a break from card making to watch Hikaru No Go, but luckily I was able to finish this card in time for My Favorite Thing’s Sketch Challenge. I was so excited to get to play with my new background that I received from Unity Stamp Co, especially since Valentine’s Day is coming up.

I used Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System to die cut two white cardstock. On one white cardstock, I stamped Unity Stamp Co Criss Cross Hearts with Gina K Designs Red Hot Ink, and the second one, I used Whimsy Stamps Slimline Card Builder Die to die cut 3 ovals. Next, I stamped and water colored some elephants and a rainbow from the Clearly Besotted Playful Pair Stamp Set. Lastly, I assembled everything over a red card stock base.

A Dandy Birthday

When I saw this sketch from My Favorite Things, I knew I wanted to combine it with the Color Hue Red and Grey Challenge.

I started with coloring the Clearly Besotted Hot Stuff Stamp Set with Spreey Watercolor Brush Pens, and then fussy cutting them out. I added some red and white dots on the dragon to give them some more dimension. Next I inked some Gina K Designs Red Hot on to some white cardstock and cut them into 4 pieces. I stamped some dandelion and the sentiment from the Hero Arts Make a Wish Stamp Set into the small squares.

Since it’s a birthday card, I decided to add some stenciled sprinkles sprinkling down in the background. I used Gina K Design’s Soft Stone to ink the sprinkles in. Once all the pieces of the card were done, I assembled them together.
