Have a Sweet Birthday

Hi all!  Happy Wednesday!  Just popping in with a quick post.  I used an image from Kathy Rac's first 30 Day Coloring Challenge to create this sweet card.

I love this sweet little cupcake peeker image from Bugaboo Stamps.  I pulled some Doodlebug Fruit Stand paper to compliment her colors and used a sketch from Handmade Bliss.  {I used MFT Stitched Circle Frames, which you can find in their store.}  My sentiment is from Avery Elle's Bonjour and I created a double ended flag with my Fishtail Flags STAX.  I pulled out some neglected Glitter Dots, which I LOVE and added them to the sentiment and circle frame to finish it off.

Monochromatic Flamingos

Hi all!  I'm back with my last MFT Summer School card. This is clearly for the monochromatic lesson.  It worked perfectly with the flamingos.

I created my background with the Polka Dot Cover Up and three shades of pink.  I also cut my flamingos from the same pinks.  They are popped up on a Stitched Circle STAX and a sentiment from Tickled Pink finishes it off.

You {primarily} Warm My Heart

Hi all!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope you are staying cool where you are!

My card today is for the MFT Summer School Session #2 lesson on primary colors,  red, yellow and blue.

I absolutely love the Quilt Cover Up plate from MFT.  It's perfect for color challenges.  For my card today, I happened to have some patterned paper on my desk {sorry, don't remember what line} that fit the bill of red, yellow and blue perfectly -- as well as working very well with a quilt concept.  I cut the quilt cover up plate with the red and yellow patterned paper, as well as Blueberry Sky from PTI for the trim.  I kept it very simple and added in a sentiment from MFT Perk Up.

MFT Summer School Lesson #7 - Spiffy Birthday

Hi all! Happy Monday!  I have another card for the MFT Summer Session #2.  This is for the Complementary Colors lesson.  I went with purple and yellow --- not two colors I typically use, much less use together.

I think the Terrific Ties stamp set is perfect for accomplishing color combos.  For my card, I did two ties in Banana Split with Grape Jelly polka dots.  I stamped all of my ties twice with each color/stamp to get a vibrant color.  My bow ties were stamped in Grapesicle and then with the stripes in Grape Jelly.  They are popped up on a Zig Zag Square panel.  My background is stamped in Grapesicle with the Swiss Dot background.

A Gallon/Quart/Pint Happy Birthday

Hi all!  I don't usually post at night, but I'm trying to squeak in some MFT Summer School, Session #2 projects.  I didn't get to play along with all of their challenges, but I did a few and tonight's card is based upon the gallon - quart - pint lesson.

Color challenges and use are often quite tricky for me.  I wanted to use my Grout Gray as the gallon color.  I cut a card base of Grout Gray and a panel of Solar White with Blueprints 13.  I then randomly stamped the large swirl and the small star from Whimsical Wishes in Grout Gray Hybrid ink.  My quart color is Limelight -- a color that I really love.  I stamped the circle trio in Limelight Dye ink.  Finally for my pint color, I used Razzle Berry to stamp the long line image from Whimsical Wishes.  I popped this panel up using fun foam on my card base.

For my focal point, I needed to do something that would accommodate and compliment that small font sentiment.  I cut a Stitched Circle Frame from Limelight and Solar White.  I made an oops, but I actually like how it turned out.  I stamped the line image in Grout Gray, but I didn't get all of the Razzle Berry off the stamp before inking it up with Grout Gray, so it comes through rather faded looking.  I finished stamping the Solar White circle with the line image in Grout Gray.  I like the faded look.  I added in some stars in Limelight and the sentiment in Razzle Berry.  A few tiny pearly rhinestones finished it off.
