Goodbye Mojo Monday

Mojo Monday, one of the first sketch challenges out there, is ending it’s run with Sketch 500. I was so very sad to read the news! I have followed this site from the beginning.

 

I decided to use their last sketch for my husband’s birthday card. I have this post scheduled to go live after I give him the card lol. This is also card #3 for my Craft from My Stash challenge.

 

 

The inside sentiment is what inspired me to use this MFT Make a Wish stamp set. It’s one long line that wouldn’t fit on the block so I bent it and selective inked each part to make it go on two lines.

 

 

The front of the card was a labor of love trying to ink each candle individually as it was all one stamp! The coordinating dies cut them out individually. I stamped the panel behind the candles with MFT Balloon Strings background and the bottom panel is the MFT Happy Birthday background.

 

Here is the sketch ~

 

 

Have a great night!

 

Supplies ~ all MFT except where noted

Stamps: Make a Wish, Balloon Strings background, Happy Birthday background

Ink: Persimmon, Orange Zest, Lemon Chiffon, Daffodil, Spearmint, Blueberry

CS: Summer Splash, Smooth White

PP: Sweet Sunshine 6×6 paper pad

Preschool Graduation Card

I’m back with my 2nd post for the day and project 2 for my 2017 Craft from My Stash challenge.

 

This card is for my little nephew/godson who graduated from preschool today! I’m still in shock and awe that he is old enough for kindergarten!!

 

 

I used the MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge that closes shortly, nothing like waiting til the last minute lol! I made this card very late last night. I had no idea what I wanted to make and as I was flipping through my stamps, I came across an old set that hasn’t seen much ink – LJD Out on a Limb, the letters & numbers circles are perfect for a school related card!

 

Here is the sketch ~

 

I started this post earlier and then ran out of time before I had to leave, so now you get to see the little graduate!

 

 

It was a fun little ceremony full of cute kids singing songs.

 

Have a great day!

Pumpkin Patch Girl

Good morning!

 

Today I am sharing another card from the weekend. When I was digging in the TE kit for papers, I discovered several stamped images I had in there from the last time I used the kit. I had even stamped the paper piecing part already! This is MFT’s Innocence Pumpkin Patch Girl.

So I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and blended it with Gamsol. Then added the paper pieces sweater. The rest of the card came together pretty fast!

 

I embossed the green cardstock with an old Sizzix folder and added a bow with ribbon from the kit.

 

Have a great day!

What’s on My Desk Card

Today I signed up for a “What’s on My Desk” card swap. I could only use what was on my desk…and I made the card tonight! That will likely never happen so quickly again lol!  I really want to clean my desk off so the card had to get made!

 

I used Birthday Flopsey from MFT, a long retired stamp line, along with the current MFT sketch.

My favorite companies are MFT and Stampin Up so it’s no surprise that this card has both! The card base, patterned paper and orange stars are all SU. The image panel, stars and smaller pieces were cut with MFT Dienamics.

 

Here is the sketch~
