Tag You're It Challenge #54 Reminder


I'm popping in with a reminder that you have a few more days to join
Tag You're It Challenge #54 with inspiration from Michelle Short.


I made a second tag, and here's how Michelle's tag inspired me.


After ink distressing the tag, I colored the poppy and added some details
with a white pigment pen. I stamped the sentiment, then finished off the tag
with some black and white twine.

You have until Wednesday, August 31st at 9am EST to link up your tags.
Hope to see you in the link up! Thanks for stopping by.

CAS(E) this Sketch 187


Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 187, compliments of Chrissy.



And here' my take on it.

I ink distressed some leaves and spattered them with white paint. A kraft
card base was stamped in Natural ink with Whimsical Woodgrain. The leaves
were assembled on the card and finished off with the white embossed sentiment.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the design team interpreted
the sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday,
September 1st, and we hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #295


Another Wednesday means a new sketch from My Favorite Things.


Here's Sketch #295.

And here's my take on it.


I die cut two bird cages from gold card stock and joined them together
to form a longer cage. Three birds were white embossed and ink distressed
and adhered to the cage. I added a strip of dotted paper and finished off
with the sentiment and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

MFT August Card Kit Release



My Favorite Things August Card Kit--Sensational Stitched Flowers is now
available to purchase in the MFT Store!

I'd like to share one more card with you, using the contents of the kit, as well as
MFT products you may already own. This is such an awesome kit and I'm predicting
another super early sell out, so be sure to grab yours now!


I wanted to create a wreath, so I folded a 5x5" card base from Primitive White
card stock and stamped the Crosshatch Background with In the Buff dye ink.
 I die cut a ton of flowers and leaves from the card stock in the kit.


The edges of the flowers and leaves were shaded with Distress inks, and
highlighted with white pigment ink to give them more dimension. They were
adhered to the card base, forming a wreath. The sentiment was gold embossed
on a strip of vellum and wrapped around the card.

I'm so in love with the stitching details on the dies. Stitching always adds
wonderful texture and ink distressing brings it out even more.

Thanks for stopping by during the card kit countdown and release!
Now, go and buy your kit and don't forget to tag your photos with #mftstamps
on social media so we can see your projects created with this fabulous kit.
