I am popping in with a couple of cards. I am playing along with a few blog challenges. For this first card, I just fell in love with the bold colors at Always Playing With Paper. I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch which showcases these bold colors beautifully. I did turn the sketch to make it a vertical card. I also decided I could play some tic tac toe with The Paper Players.
I am using MFT Products unless otherwise noted. I started with MFT smooth white, steel gray, razzle berry, and sour apple card stocks. The card base is steel gray. I die cut a smooth white layer using Blueprints 2. I die cut the razzle berry layer with Blueprints 13. I stamped this panel with Damask background stamp in razzle berry premium ink. Next, I die cut sour apple using Vertical Stitched Strips die namics. I stamped with Swiss Dot background stamp in sour apple premium ink. I glued all three panels together and added to the card base with some foam mounting tape. Next, I die cut smooth white with pierced circle stax. I stamped the SMILE from Smile stamp set in razzle berry ink. I stamped the top portion of the sentiment from same set in steel gray ink. I felt like it still needed a little something so I added a swirly image from Chalkboard Greetings Too in sour apple ink. Love how it finished off the sentiment panel. I added some loose threading behind and finished with a few clear sequins.
For the second card, I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and Just Us Girls Inspiration Challenge. I just thought this photo had so many beautiful options. I fell in love with the green gingham, polka dots, and bunnies!
I started with MFT smooth white, lemon chiffon, cotton candy, and kraft card stocks. I have a kraft base. I die cut the curve panel with Blueprints 20 in smooth white and lemon chiffon. I stamped the smooth white panel with gingham background stamp in sour apple ink. I stamped the lemon chiffon edge in versa mark using Darling Dots stamp set and white embossed. I sponged on some lemon chiffon ink to enhanced the color a bit. I cut out the circle element using the die from Blueprints 18. I cut out the same circle from cotton candy and popped up behind. I die cut Somebunny die namics and stamped with Somebunny stamp set in hybrid black licorice ink and colored with copics. I used some Jody boosters to pop up the bunny a bit to the cotton candy circle. I used foam mounting tape to pop up the whole panel to the kraft base. I die cut the sentiment strip from Blueprints 2 and stamped with sentiment using Hybrid black licorice ink. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
