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~

75th Birthday

Hi again!

 

I’m back with another birthday card. This one was created for my mother-in-law who celebrated her 75th birthday on Friday.  I incorporated several challenges (listed below) in making this card.

I used several stamps from the Stampin Up Number of Years stamp set, even the flowers were from the set! Even though it’s technically not fall yet, I wanted the card to have a fall feel to it and I think I accomplished that with the color palette and burlap.

 

The sketch used is from Freshly Made Sketches~

and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts~

also the N is for Numbers challenge at Alphabet Challenge

and the birthday challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

 

My MIL’s party was on Labor Day and I created tags for the favor bags.  A huge labor of love since I hand stamped 40 tags.  All the stamps used are from Lawn Fawn – Birthday Tags, Violet’s ABCs and Milo’s ABCs.

Sweet Cupcake

Hello!

 

Today I am sharing a card for a Happy Birthday Cupcake swap.  I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and color challenge at Nacho Average Challenges. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to use Calypso Coral, one of my fave colors!

Using the MISTI made stamping this cupcake pretty easy! I had a little trouble with the bottom layer with the first colors I chose, a tip don’t go too dark or else you can’t see the layers. I think next time I might try stamping off with one color to make the layers blend a bit better.

 

Here is the sketch~

Happy Bear-thday

Happy August!! I’m a week late in saying that lol…I have created a little but haven’t been blogging anything. Not sure why…is blogging losing its appeal or am I just too busy?  I use my mobile devices so much more and find it hard to make time for the computer (which is so much easier when adding graphics/links and such for challenges!)

 

Anyways, I have about 15 minutes left to get my card entered for the sketch #459 at Mojo Monday!  I used my new MFT BB Beary Special Birthday stamp set. The bears in the set are so cute!!  I paired my bear with It’s My Party paper from Stampin’ Up!
