Sweet Stamp Shop Blog Hop! Grand Re-Opening


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!

Seems like I have a bit of time on my hands and got a chance to participate in this week's MFT challenge. The sketch was clean and simple which is right up my alley.

I decided to make a shaker birthday card. I went with black and pink, but decided to throw in a bit of lime green for some contrast. I also used the shimmer mist spray by MFT on the black cardstock. I love that mist. It adds a subtle touch that makes all the difference.

The stare is from a retired MFT dienamics set called Rock n Roll. Believe it or not it is the first time I used it since I purchased it. The birthday sentiment is also from a retired MFT set called JUST my TYPE. It's an old vintage typewriter with such fun sentiments. It is one of my favorite MFT sets and I cannot part with it. The black cardstock panel was cut using blueprints # 15. It includes that beautiful stitched panel. 

Thanks for stopping by!

What another MFT sketch completed?
I can't believe it either. I really liked the sketch so much I knew I had to make time to play!

Here's my card below. I made the side banners a little skewed to make room for
The Mr and Mrs. I also wish I could go
Over the word Mr again and reemboss! I have the hardest time with the white embossing powder.

I'm photographed using my iPhone and am also blogging from the blogger app so pardon the brevity of this post.

All items except the gold cardstock are from MFT.

Wish Big - MFTWSC221

Welcome back to my little blog here! It is slowly revitalizing itself. It has definitely been a long, cold and dreary winter and I am ready to experience pretty blue skies and colorful flowers!
With that, I made a card that deviates from my normal style! Where shall we start with the changes? Well how about the embossed clouds? I plunged into the world of embossing paste and I don't think I can ever go back again! Next, how about the flower colors? I don't think I would ever use anything other than green for leaves! Yet, I like how this turned out! 

 Here is a close-up of the focal image of the card. I also sprayed some of  MFT's Shimmer Mist Spray on the card, especially on the flower and leaves.

The frame was created by nesting the adorable Stitched tags from MFT (by far one of my most go-to item for cards and tags of course.). I layered one on top of the other for the window. The slightly wider portion on the bottom was intentional, because I wasn't sure if I was going to stamp a sentiment on there or not.

Thanks for stopping by!

I decided to play along with MFT's weekly sketch challenge.
I needed a little bit of art therapy and when I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to play with some recently acquired MFT goodies!

Here is my take on this week's MFT sketch:
