Happy Saturday!  I had some time to get crafty last night after refrigerator shopping.   After 9 years, the compressor gave out.  I remember when I was growing up we had the same refrigerator forever!  We have narrowed the selection down to three.  If you have a brand or thoughts about yours that you just LOVE, please let me know.   Since refrigerator shopping is not my idea of fun, I needed to detox in my crafty space.   I am popping in with a couple of cards to share.

For this first card, I am playing along with The ColourQ.
I just love these spring colors.  I am using MFT products unless otherwise noted. started with MFT Card Stock in smooth white, sour apple, summer splash, wild wisteria, and cotton candy.  I used one of the horizontal stitched die namics to cut four pieces of card stock in different colors.  I mounted these to a smaller piece of card stock and used foam mounting tape to adhere to a smooth white card base.  

Next, I die cut Circle Scribbles and Scribbles die namics using smooth white.  I used Wink Of Stella (love this stuff) to add some sparkle sheen to the scribble layer.  Love the look in person.  I die cut sour apple leaves using Wild Greenery die namics.  I added some versa mark to the edges for added definition.   Next, I die cut Negative Dot Alphabet in smooth white and created the sentiment.  I used Wink of Stella to add some shimmer sparkle to the letters, too.   I finished with a few clear sequins.

For this card I am playing along with The Color Throwdown and Fusion Card Challenge (sketch). I just love these colors, too.  I started with MFT smooth white, cherry crisp, limeade, and lemon chiffon card stocks.  

I die cut the scalloped smooth white panel with Blueprints 20.  I layered the lemon chiffon die cut with Blueprints 13 and stamped with lemon chiffon ink with Gingham background stamp. I die cut a piece of cherry crisp using Blueprints 2 to go across the card to comply with sketch.  For the focal point,  I die cut the pierced oval stax and stamped with sentiment from I Love You More stamp set in Hybrid black licorice ink.  I die cut the cherry crisp card stock with layered rose die namics.  I glued the flower layers together and fluffed a bit.  I added a faceted red enamel dot to the center.  Next, I die cut the limeade card stock with layered leaves.  Uses some versamark for added dimension.  I tucked two of the leaves in behind the flower.  I finished with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
