Happy Saturday!  I am popping in with  few cards to share.  I finally had some time to get crafty.  For my first card, I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and MFT Color Challenge. 

I am using MFT Stamps.  I started with MFT smooth white, fuse green, kraft, ripe raspberry, tickled pink, and black licorice card stocks.  My card base is smooth white.  I die cut the fuse green with Blueprints 13.  I edged the bottom with Stiched Basic Edgers die namics.  I stamped the houndstooth background using versamark for a subtle stamped background.  I die cut the stitchable circle stax.  I die cut the smooth white panel with Vertical Stitched Strips. 

 I die cut the flamingo with smooth white, ripe raspberry, tickled pink, black licorice, and kraft.  I constructed the pink flamingo and added it to the card.  I used some foam mounting tape on the body of the flamingo for some added dimension.  I inked distressed the edges with versamark to add some depth to the flamingo.

Graduation Card!

For my second card, I am playing along with Fusion Card Challenge, The Friday Mashup, and Fab Friday. 

I started with MFT Stamps smooth white, lemon chiffon, and steel gray card stocks.  I die cut the steel gray with Blueprints 13.  I stamped Outline Sentiments in sweet tooth pigment ink.  I layered a smooth white panel die cut with Vertical Stitched Strips.  I layered a Stitched Jumbo Flag Stax.  I inked up sentiments from Watt's Up and Beautiful Baby stamp sets.  I white embossed the "Bright."  I sponged on some daffodil at the bottom then some lemon chiffon to give an ombre "light" effect.  I die cut the chandelier die namics in steel gray three times and glued together for some added dimension and stability.

Sweet Treats card!

My last card is just fun!  The only thing better than a scoop of ice cream are three scoops of ice cream!  I am playing along with Retro Sketch and Just Add Ink color challenge.

I started with MFT smooth white, kraft, and sno cone card stocks.  I die cut the triple scoop cone from Sweet Treats in kraft and stamped with coordinating image from You're the Sweetest stamp set.  I die cut the scoops in smooth white and stamped with coral crush, snow cone, and sour apple inks.  I layered with some foam mounting tape.  I die cut the kraft background with Blueprints 13.  I stamped with Simply Circles background with sweet tooth ink.  I added a sentiment in bottom corner from You're the Sweetest stamp set in hybrid black licorice ink.  I finished with a few sequins and some loose thread.
