I am popping in with a couple of cards to share today.  For my first card, I am playing along with The Color Throwdown and  Freshly Made Sketches.  

I am using MFT Stamps products.  I started with smooth white, tropical teal, gumdrop green, and kraft.  The base is sweet tooth.  I used Blueprints 15 to cut the stitched borders. I trimmed the edges of the kraft panel to comply with sketch.  I stamped the sentiment from Chalkboard Greetings Too.  I used my new MISTI to stamp the sentiment.  I LOVE THIS TOOL!  It is amazing!  I stamped the sentiment in Hybrid black licorice ink.  I needed a little branch and thought the stem from Modern Blooms along with a few leaves would be perfect.   I die cut the Modern Bloom stem and leaves.  I stamped the stem with Memento cocoa ink.  The leaves were stamped with sour apple ink using the Modern Blooms stamp set.  I die cut Tweet on You birdies and stamped with Tweet on You stamp set coordinating images using hybrid black licorice ink.  I colored with copics.  I popped the little birdies up using some foam tape.  I finished my card with some loose white quilting thread and clear sequins.

For my second card, I am playing along with The Curtain Call and The Sweet Sunday Sketch.
I started with MFT smooth white and summer splash card stocks.  The base is smooth white.  The summer splash panel was die cut with Blueprints 13.  The bottom was die cut with Stitched Basic Edges.  I stamped this panel with Linen background in summer splash ink.  I die cut the stitched jumbo fishtail banner stax.  I stamped it with field day ink using pinstripe background.  I die cut the circle element using Blueprints 18.  I stamped the sentiment from Fall Foliage using hybrid black licorice ink.  I die cut several of the Modern Blooms die namics.  I stamped the flowers using Modern Blooms stamp set.  I arranged my flowers and finished my card with a few matching sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
