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 22 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.
