Happy Saturday!  It has been an interesting week with snow, ice, and no school!  It sure will be tough getting back into the swing of things on Monday.  I had plenty of time to get crafty this week so it is all good!   I have two cards to share today.  
 

For my first card I am playing along with this week MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, this week's Color Throwdown, and this week's The Card Concept "Get Well Soon" card



I started with MFT card stock in kraft, gumdrop green, berrylicious, kraft, and smooth white.  The card base is kraft.  I also die cut another piece of kraft using Blueprints 15 stitched frame.  I stamped this panel with Linen Background in versamark.  I die cut Stitched Snowdrifts die namics to comply with the sketch.  I die cut berrylicious and gumdrop green using pierced circle stax.  I die cut the jellybean again with the stitched snow drifts.  I stamped this bottom "grass" portion using Swiss Dots background in jellybean green premium ink for a contrast in tonal colors.  I die cut the bunny and clouds from Somebunny die namics and stamped with coordinating images from Somebunny stamp set using Hybrid black licorice ink.  I colored with copics.  I popped up the circle and bunny images and glued the clouds together as well as directly to the circle images setting them off the edge a bit for effect.  I think this bunny image is so adorable since it looks like she is shaking her cottontail.  I thought the sentiment from You Have My Heart stamp set.  I love it!    

For the inside of the card I layered kraft using Blueprints 13 stitched panel.  I stamped a different bunny from the Somebunny stamp set using hybrid black licorice ink. I stamped the sentiment from Get Well Wishes stamp set. 









For my second card I am playing along with Colour Me and The Friday Mashup!

I started with MFT card stocks in smooth white, summer splash, electric red, lemon drop, and banana split.  The card base is smooth white.  I die cut the electric red panel with Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax.  I stamped with Houndstooth background in premium electric red ink.  I die cut the smooth white frame with the same inside and out die.  I layered the bottom with summer splash and banana split die cut from fishtail flag stax.  I stamped the summer splash with pinstripe background using summer splash premium ink.  I stamped the banana split with Romantic Script background using Daffodil premium ink for some contrast.  I die cut the dotted cut out die from Blueprints 22 in electric red and used some foam tape to pop up a bit.  

I die cut and layered my Gerbera Daisy with contrast colors of banana split and lemon drop card stocks and put a few foam dimensionals between the stacks for added height.  I finished the top of the flower with an electric red center that I inked around the edges with versamark.  For the sentiment I used Blueprints 9 tab element and stamped the sentiment from Whimiscial Wishes stamp set using Hybrid black licorice ink.  I debating adding some leaves, but decided to leave it just like it is.  


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
