Summer School continues

I have another card for you today for MFT's Summer School challenges.
I am submitting this for the Focal Point class as well as the Movement/Flow.


These butterfly dies are my absolute favorite and I have used them quite a bit. They are large and perfect to make it the focal point of any project you create. I added a trail of sequences to give the card some movement.

Materials:
Butterly dies
Sun Ray Cover Plate
Sequins

Quiet. White Space

I'm back with another card for Summer School. There's still time if you wish to play along. You can find this Summer School challenge here.
Ice Cream just screams summer!

I created the card below with the ice cream as the focal point, and lots of white space surrounding it.
I added a spritz of light blue behind the ice cream as well as some gold string, and puffy sticky hearts from my daughter's stash of stickers.


Here is a close-up


I think this is one of my favorite stamp sets at the present time along with the coordinating dies.
What do you think?

Materials:
Sweet Treats - dies

Here's another card for the  My Favorite Things Summer School challenge!
This card is for a high school graduate. Green and Gold are the school colors, and I decided to stick with it. Trust me this color combination proved to be a bit challenging, however using the awesome die-namics, it made it slightly easier.


All products can be found at the MFT shop. I will try to post links later!

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

Summer School with MFT

It has certainly been a while since I have last blogged. As a mother of two little girls and also having a full time job, time is a bit limited. Summer brings longer days a slower pace and more time. I'm hoping to be able to get a little more crafty, but also to be able to post a bit more regularly.
I have some ideas for this blog and hope to implement them over the summer.

I am going to kick off the summer with some  of my favorite things, and specifically the My Favorite Things Summer School challenge! I'm actually triple dipping with this card and also using it for the MFTWSC233 as well as the MFT Color Challenge 23.


With the triple dipping in MFT challenges, I was able to use the sketch, albeit loosely. you can see it but as for the strip on the card, I used the twine to create that effect. I also applied the Rule of thirds by placing the flower cluster in the right corner box of the card.


Here is a close-up of the rolled flowers. They are so easy and fun to make as long as you have a quilling tool. Otherwise it can be a little frustrating. But you can whip these babies up in no time. Make sure to use some hot glue to hold them together. I also added some glitter to the edges of the roses.


Thanks for stopping by! :-)

Sweet Stamp Shop Blog Hop! Grand Re-Opening

oolong

I'm happy to be participating in a HUGE BLOG HOP today in honor of SWEET STAMP SHOP's Grand Re-Opening. Nicole, the owner of Sweet Stamp Shop, has cute stamps that I like to play with. I would describe most of them as cute or punny, which is exactly what I like to play with.

I chose this punny BEER WISHES mini stamp set! How funny is this? I just stamped the beer glass, funny face and sentiment on a white cardstock panel. It couldn't have been easier. I grabbed a few copics and created an ombre effect on the word BEER. Lastly I colored the beer glass and added a little shadow underneath it. I popped this panel on some foam tape to make it pop a bit off the card. On the bottom of the card I just added a small piece of scrap pattern paper I had to create some interest on the card.

I can't wait to get inky and play with this set some more. I have ideas brewing and want to make sure they ferment properly! :-)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy everyone else's creations that are playing along with Sweet Stamp Shop's stamps!

Cheers!
