Good morning!!


Another quick crafty morning for me before work. I remembered that the sketch at Create with Connie & Mary ends today so I wanted to get a card entered. I just LOVE this sketch, all I could envision was using lots of DSP and that’s just what I did!


2015 Card 20 - SU Stacked with Love


I used 4 different patterns from the Stacked with Love paper pad.  I added in a sentiment from And Many More. Tied a not so good Real Red cotton ribbon bow and added two rhinestones to finish the card off.  The base is Calypso Coral, one of my all time favorite SU colors!


Here is the sketch~



Time to finish getting ready for work. Have a GREAT day!!!

Beary Good Birthday



Tonight I am sharing the card I made for the MFT Color Challenge.  I used the MFT sketch that I used this morning since I really liked it :-)

Challenge #14




I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the colors so I started flipping through my MFT stamp sets and came across Birdie Brown’s Cool Day set which hadn’t been used until tonight. I am always in need of birthday cards so this cute polar bear card came together pretty easily. I used my MFT Sweater Stitch background on the Wild Wisteria panel.


2015 Card 19 - MFT BB Cool Day


I really love being able to make my own patterned paper with the background stamps!


That’s all for tonight!

MFT Sketch 214

Good morning!


I was able to make a super quick card this morning so I don’t break my streak of participating in the MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge…it’s not my favorite but I got to use my new Tiny Hearts background stamp and a sentiment from the PI Sending Big Hugs stamp set, so yay!


This post has been edited to add a much clearer/brighter picture of my card and supply details~


2015 Card 18 - MFT Take Two

The light pink panel was stamped with the MFT Tiny Hearts background stamp in Grout Gray. I then cut it out with the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 20. The half circle was cut with the MFT Stitched Circle Stax from Carta Bella Devoted paper, I so love the stripes!! This was a scrap that I just had to use up :-)

Monster Mash Valentine



Tonight’s card was a bit of a challenge lol…I was inspired by a card I saw this morning, and a challenge a friend shared with me, to use my Simon Says Stamp Monster Hugs stamp set. I knew the look I was going for but it was a bit difficult since I haven’t masked my images before. I will admit that I am a lazy stamper! After a few attempts, I finally got it how I wanted it.


This is the card I am entering in Tuesday Throwdown’s Monster Mash challenge~

2015 Card 17 - SSS Monster Hugs


We’ve established that I love stitched dies, right? I used my MFT Stitched Tag Stax for the first time tonight. I thought about adding a bow but it didn’t like it, so I added a silver heart brad from my stash. The little hearts are leftover from a card I made a few nights ago.


Have a great night!
