MFT Sketches are Flamazing!

It's been awhile! I'm learning a new hobby - machine embroidery. But in between playing with that, I still will get a little stamping done - this time for the weekly sketch challenge at MFT - my favorite!

Here is the sketch - and my card:

The color on the card is a little wonky as the light in my room leaves a lot to be desired. This is a white card, with a striped background from an old Basic Grey paper pad and the stamps are from MFT's Flamazing set. I cheated a little on the sketch by eliminating the small element to the right but that's ok! Sketches are just to get the creative juices flowing.

Hope to see you again soon!

Color AND Sketch challenge

I'm combining 2 MFT challenges into one card this week - the Sketch challenge and the color challenge. I just started working on Valentine cards and needed something not too girly for my adult son. He loves giraffes so I think he'll enjoy this card.

Here is the sketch and colors we're working with:

And here's my card:

I used the Color Drops dies to create my two-tone heart and the stamp is from Giraffing Me Crazy. The sentiment is from Critter Clan. It's hard to tell in the photo but the sentiment is stamped on pale yellow as is the giraffe. I did move the sentiment to the bottom of the card because it's a long one!

What are you making for Valentine's Day? I hope to have more to show soon!!

Long time, no post! MFT Sketch!

I know I haven't posted in awhile but one of my 2018 resolutions is to take more time to do the things i enjoy which include crafting, reading and playing The Sims 4. Yes, I'm a geek. So I'm starting the year with a card I created for this past week's MFT sketch challenge.

Here's the sketch:

And let me tell, I thought I had this all worked out and then as I got toward the end of the card, realized I was one element short. BUT, creative license says that's ok and I went with it as is because another image would have just looked cramped anyhow. I also moved the sentiment. Creative license, people! Here's my card:

My 2 little penguins are enjoying the cold more than I am! So what are your resolutions for the New Year? Thanks for stopping by!

MFT Color Challenge

Back with another card today - this time for the MFT Color Challenge. The colors we're using are After Midnight, Lemon Chiffon, Red Hot and Daffodil.

I got out another yet-to-be-used stamp set, Strike Up the Band, and created this:

I don't know anyone in a band of any kind but I couldn't pass up having these adorable marching bunnies! I used three of the four colors (no Lemon Chiffon in this one) and made the background to match. Cute?

I just got some more new stamps the other day (birthday gift from my loving hubby) so I am planning some more stamping time ASAP! See you soon!

MFT Sketch Challenge 352

Back to challenges!

I've decided I need to find more time in my life to enjoy some hobbies so I'm trying to get more creative time - I miss it! One of my favorite stamping challenges is a sketch challenge and I'm currently hooked on MFT Stamps so I'm playing along this week.

Here is the sketch we are working with:
And here is my card:

Featuring the Bionic Bots, these guys are ready to wish a special 4 year old a very Happy Birthday! My grandson turns 4 tomorrow and this will be his card. He loves getting cards and I'm sure this one will make him smile.

Thanks for stopping by!
