Hi everyone! I'm sharing a fun card I created using the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. MFT is kicking off the new year with a bang bringing on an awesome new Design Team and two new challenges each week - be sure to check them out! I love that you can enter even if you don't have MFT stamps or products but I definitely will not be without for very long - have you seen the new release?! Oh boy, it's tough falling in love with new (to me) stamp companies…well, it's easy because I sure do love cute but tough on the ol' bank account! haha Sketches are one of my favorite challenges to do because it gives you a great starting point for a card. I have a hard time following sketches to a T but I think that is part of the fun. I flipped the sketch on its side and created a shaker opening for the layers instead of paper using my Spellbinders Pierced Squares dies. I'm in awe of shaker cards and I am having fun giving them a try myself. It is just such a fun element to add all those shaker bits - and a great way to use all these sequins I've been
My stamp is from The Greeting Farm - Cheers Anya and I colored her using my Peerless Watercolors. I am really in love with these like I mentioned in my post last week. This cutie patootie is actually on SALE right now at The Greeting Farm so if you love her, go grab her for a great price! I stamped her on Tim Holtz watercolor paper and after I finished coloring her, fussy cut her out. I propped her up on some foam tape for extra dimension. This card is anything but flat! I stamped the numbers from the Digits Paper Smooches stamp set in versa mark on this fab metallic card stock and embossed with Imagine Crafts gold embossing powder. I love the mix of gold and silver together. The sentiment comes from the Sparkle And Shine Simon Says Stamp set and I embossed again (I think I've finally caught the embossing bug…I'd like to thank Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire for that!) with Imagine Crafts white embossing powder.
I love how this card turned out and I already know who I will be sending it to as I start my year of mailing cards to unsuspecting friends and family members!
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
