I'm participating in the My Favorite Things Sketch 300 this week.

I needed a birthday card for a family friend, so this sweet llama really fit the bill.  I started with a background of Grout Grey and stamped the background with the new Lined Up Dots Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment ink on Steel Blue cardstock.  The images and oval background were cut from water color paper, the background was water colored and the llama and cactus were colored with Copic markers.

Paper: MFT cardstock Grout Grey, Steel Blue, water color paper
MFT supplies: Die-namics (Blueprints 8, Blueprints 20, Wonky Stitched Oval STAX), twine

Bear in the Forest

I'm participating in the My Favorite Things Sketch 291.

For the sketch I used the MFT Forest Friends stamp set and colored the bear with copics.  The background forest was created with a water color and the Die-namics Birch Trees, on the Die-namics Stitched Rectangle STAX, and the matt was made with the Die-namics Pinking Edge Rectangle STAX. The designer paper is from the MFT Subtle Plaids Paper Pack cut out with the Blueprints 8 Stitched Square and the greeting was stamped on a die from the Blueprints 20.  The center strip was dry embossed.

MFT Camp Create

It's time again for the My Favorite Things Camp Create week.


For the first project, foiling, I created a graduation card.

To create the starry sky background I used Color Burst water color powders after spritzing water color paper with water, once it dryed, I added additional drops of water.  The stars were cut out of Gold Foil Cardstock, using the Die-namics Stacking Stars and Die-namics Pierced Star STAX.   The word 'stars' was cut out with Die-namics Count the Stars, with the first part of the greeting from the stamp set of the same name, and mounted on a dry embossed strip.  


For the second card, coloring on Kraft, I made a thank you card.

I heat embossed the MFT Scribble Roses in white and colored them all with a white Prisma pencil before coloring them with again with color pencils, the white pencil seems to make the colors brighter.  I added a greeting from the Die-namics Words of Gratitude and white dots made with a gel pen.


For the third card, Inlaid, I made a birthday card with my new MFT stencil and dies.

I stenciled the balloons with the Big Balloons stencil and inlaid the birthday greeting with the Die-namics Happy Birthday.  The background was dry embossed and I added a paper clip from the Die-namics Office Supplies set.


The fourth challenge is to use masking on a card, and I also used this week's MFT sketch 289.

I did a lot of masking for my inlaid card of balloons, so for this one I masked off the girl so I could stamp the MFT Linen Background on her hat.  I used the MFT BB Sunflower Sweetheart stamp set and die-namics and colored her with copics and paper pieced her dress.  The background was stamped in Sweet Tooth with the Writing Tablet Background on Kraft. 


Here's my fifth and final card for MFT Camp Create, create a background for a card.

To create this card, I used the leaf from the MFT Prehistoric Fun set and the acorn from the Forest Fun set, the deer and greeting are also from the Forest Fun set.  I colored the images with white Prisma pencil and then followed that with colored Prismas and some white gel pen dots.  The deer was colored with copic markers.  I cut through my acorn background with a  Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner die-namic and raised that panel with foam tape, then raised a smaller fishtail die-namic that was stamped with the Gingham Background and placed it in the middle with the deer on top, giving it lots of dimension.  The greeting was stamped on a banner from the MFT Blueprints 20.


Thanks to My Favorite Things for all of the fun challenges!
