Click the image to play along with the current challenge! 
Happy Friday!  I got some new MFT Stamps and die namics in the mail today! Always blown away by MFT quick shipping!   In between household chores, I was able to get crafty at various times throughout the day.  I made three cards!  I am so loving these new MFT stamps and dies! 

For the first card I am playing along with Always Playing With Paper sketch challenge, The Card Concept color challenge, and The Friday Mashup.  

I started with MFT card stock in smooth white, coral crush, blu raspberry, and gumdrop green.  The card base is smooth white.  I die cut a coral crush panel with Blueprints 13.  I stamped using MFT Pigment sweet tooth ink Simply Circles background.  I die cut a smooth white panel using Vertical Stitched Strips. 
I stamped this panel with Spotlight Sentiments using Coral Crush ink.  I die cut the focal panel with Rounded Stitched Rectangle stax in blu raspberry.  I die cut a gumdrop piece as well as used the Stitched Basic Edges die namics to create a grassy landscape.  I used Cloudy Day stencil and sponged on some clouds with Pigment sweet tooth ink.  Next, I die cut the You Gnome Me die namics and stamped with coordinating images from You Gnome Me stamp set using hybrid black licorice ink.  Oh, my!  I just think these gnomes are the cutest ever!  I colored with copics.  I die cut the tree from Tweet on You die namics and stamped with coordinating tree image from Tweet on You stamp set in hybrid black licorice ink.   I die cut the sentiment strip from Blueprints 20.  For the sentiment,  I selectively inked portions of a sentiment from You Have My Heart stamp set in hybrid black licorice ink.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.   

For my second card, I am playing along with MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and MFT Color Challenge.



I started with MFT smooth white card stock, sour apple, and nightshift blue card stocks. I used Blueprints 20 to die cut the scalloped frame background and Blueprints 13  for the nightshift blue panel.  I stamped this panel with nightshift blue ink using Simply Circles background stamp. I used Blueprints 12 for the inside outside circle die cut. I also cut the circle in sour apple card stock.  I stamped the sour apple circle with Sheet Music background using sour apple ink.    Next, I die cut a vellum heart using All My Love die namics.  I used Horizontal Stitched Strips die namics for the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from Tweet On You in hybrid black licorice ink.  I die cut a birdie from this same set and stamped the coordinating image with hybrid black licorice ink.  I love these birdies, too!  They are so C-U-T-E!  I colored with copics.  I finished the card with some clear sequins.

For my final card, I must say if you have not purchased this Modern Blooms stamp and die namics set....order it now!  It is amazing!  I can see this quickly becoming my go to flower set!  Oh my!  The possibilities!    I am playing along with The Color Throwdown and CAS(E) this Sketch.

I started with MFT kraft, smooth white, and orange fizz card stocks.  I die cut the orange fizz panel with Blueprints 13.  I stamped this panel with Houndstooth background in orange fizz ink.  I die cut a large pierced circle stax.  I stamped the sentiment from True Friend in hybrid black licorice ink.  I die cut the flowers from Modern Blooms and played around with several color combinations.  I ended up layering two of the flowers.  I love this look.  I used blue breeze, after midnight, and nightshift blue inks. For the leaves I used Limelight and sour apple inks.  I added a few touches of flower dotted centers as accents to the card using blue breeze and orange fizz inks.  I love the versatility of this set.  I finished with a few sequins.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
