A Card for Fab Friday Challenge #141, Happy Little Stampers CAS July 2018 Challenge 2018 and Paper Players Theme Challenge: Celebration

Happy Sunday everyone!! I have ANOTHER card that I created using MFT "Birthday Chicks" stamp set. I LOVE this set and am so glad that I bought it. I need to play around with masking them to make a grouping but that is a whole different post!!!

I created this card for a couple of challenges today.

I used three challenges for my inspiration. First, I used the FAB Friday Challenge #141 for the design of my card. I used the Happy Little Stampers CAS July Challenge "Animals" for the little birds and the theme is from the Paper Players Challenge #400-Celebration!!!


I am so happy to a) have the time to create cards again and b) able to play along with some challenges. I have not had the time to sit down and do any of this for so long.

The little chicks were colored in with Copic markers. The Glossy Accents on the balloon changed up the pink, though, which kind of irritated me. I need to do some test samples on how the color changes when I use this.

This card is already gone!! I gave it to my friend to give to her mother. LOVE when my cards get a happy home!! I thank you for stopping by today!! Have a FABULOUS Sunday!!

MFT Summer School Cards

Hello everyone!! I know I posted today already but wanted to quickly pop in with two cards I created for MFT Summer School 2018-Primary Colors.

This was my first card for the challenge. I used the My Favorite Things "Celebrate Speech Bubble" die to die cut a white speech bubble and then used the same die for the red. I then covered the red letters with clear sparkle pen and Glossy Accents. Have to admit that it made the red a bit darker then I wanted but I had to go with it.

I then added the little birdies from the MFT "Birthday Chicks" set. During the last 30 Coloring Challenge I colored a boatload of the birds in all different shades. I picked out a couple to use on this card, along with the balloon.

I added another bird on the top right and then used Clear Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents on the hats and the balloon.

For my second card, I used the red celebrate speech bubble and complemented it with some more little birds from "Birthday Chicks."

On this card, I used yellow and blue birds for the card. I popped them up with foam adhesive and added some "sprinkles" to the tiny cupcakes with Stickles, as well as some sparkle to the blue bird's hat.

I still have a ton of these birds to use too and even stamped and die cut more just in case I needed them!!

That is all from me tonight. Again, I am entering these cards into the MFT Summer School Challenge 2018-Primary Colors.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS night!!!

MFT Summer School: Complementary Colors and AAA Cards Challenge #118

Happy Saturday!! Just popping in to show you the cards I created for the MFT Summer School using Complementary Colors. I actually used Stephanie Klauk's technique of using solid flowers from different sets to stamp multiple cards at once. I don't have a ton but it was fun using what I had!!

Here are my cards:

This card is actually my favorite. I LOVE orange and blue and a combo of the two!! I figured that adding the "let's eat cake" sentiment I can make this into a birthday card!!

This card is okay. I don't love the yellow. I think if I had to do it over I would use a different shade of the yellow. I added some sparkle onto the "Hugs" sentiment to give it a little shine.

The card below is my least favorite. I LOVE the colors BUT did not have an MFT sentiment large enough to really do this card justice. Guess who put in an order yesterday for some more sentiments? I should have just used another companies Christmas dies, which I have a lot of.

I am entering all these cards into the Complementary Colors page of MFT.

I am also entering the first card into AAA Cards Challenge #118 which was to Use a Frame

Thank you for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!

MFT Summer School: Repetition

Happy Friday everyone!! It has been so quiet here on the blog. As I posted last week I have been up to my neck with Charlotte's graduation and then her graduation party. The party was last Saturday and I have spent the week recovering!!

I did have time to play over at MFT for their Summer School 2018. Today I am sharing a card that I created for the Repetition lesson.

I used the stamp set "All Smiles" to stamp the sentiment in three different pinky colors. I then used the "Smile" die for the sentiment.

I adhered it to a melon colored, A2 card base and added some pieces of Washi tape. The little birds are from the "Happy Hippos" set and colored in with Copic markers. Such a fun card to make!!

Here are some of Charlotte's graduation photos:


I thank you for taking the time to stop by today!! Have a great night!!
