PrintI had some time to craft today!   I have a few cards to share with this post.  I am playing along with a few blog challenges.   For my first card I am playing along with MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and the ColourQ.

For my card I am using MFT Stamp products unless otherwise noted.  I started with MFT card stock in blu raspberry, electric red, lemon drop, smooth white, and kraft.   I stamped the base color using  Diagonal Stripe background stamp using  Premium blu raspberry ink pad.  I die cut the smooth white and electric red card stocks with Blueprints 15 stitched frame.  I die cut the electric red panel again using the Stitched Scallop Edges and FRIEND die.  I stamped the electric red panel using Linen Background stamp using premium electric red ink pad.  I stamped the sentiment from Friends Like Us stamp set using Hybrid black licorice ink pad.   I die cut the flower and flower center using Blueprints 14.   I stamped the lemon drop flower using Fine Check background stamp in yellow ink.  I added a few kraft leaves using Wild Greenery dienamics.  I finished the card with a few Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  

For card #2, I am playing along with CAS this Sketch and The Color Throwdown!

I started with MFT gumball green, blue raspberry, and smooth white card stock.  I stamped the base using Swiss Dot background stamp using Premium gumball green ink pad.  I stamped the fun background using Whimsical Wishes stamp set in Premium blu raspberry, electric red, gumball green, and pink lemonade ink pads.  I die cut this panel using Blueprints 15 stitched frame and cut to fit the sketch.  I  used the Friend die namics and the Stitched Scallop edges dienamics for the sentiment.  I stamped this panel using Desert Bouquet stamp set using Premium blu raspberry ink pad.  I finished this card with a few  coordinating buttons threaded with some red/white twine.  


For card #3, I am playing along with this month's MFT Color Palette Challenge.  I used MFT paver red, whip cream,  jellybean green, and timber green card stocks.   I love playing with this quilt square cover up die.  I kept thinking I could make it look like a flower quilt.  I started with a whip cream base measuring 4.25 x 5.75.  This card is a little longer than the standard A2.  I die cut the quilt dienamics in each color.  I die cut it twice in the whip cream.  

I ink distressed all of the edges of the whip cream frames and insert pieces.  I used versa mark to ink the edges of all the colored card stock pieces.  I glued the quilt frame on the card and started inserting pieces of quilt.  I really like how it turned out.  To finish the card I die cut the button from Blueprints 10 using gold foil.  I die cut it again using paver red and glue the pieces together for added strength.  I threaded some hemp cord through the center and the card was complete.  I tried to add a tiny sentiment tag hanging from the button, but decided against it.  I will put the sentiment on the inside and let this beautiful quilted flower take center stage.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
