MTCC21 - A Sketch



Happy Monday Y'all!
It's time for a new challenge at Make The Cards Challenge and this week we have a sketch for you.



To create my card, I started with a white top folding card base and another piece of card stock to ink blend on. I used Khitch Flamingo, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade along with blending brushes and created an ink blended background. 
Next I used the Butterfly Perfect Pairings die to cut out from the ink blended panel. I also used the body of the butterfly from the Bold Butterfly dies to add a body to the butterflies. 
To finish the card I added a Happy Birthday sentiment and some rhinestones to the butterflies.

Outdoor Fun


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog again today with this card. I just love the Snail Village set and can't get enough. 
I also made this card for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers of Outdoor Fun. 

To make this card I created a nk blended background using distress inks. I stamped the mushroom house and a snail from the Snail Village set on a seperate piece of cardstock, colored it and cut it out with the coordinating die. This also comes in a bundle and you save more.

Gear Up






I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with this card, normally I am up on mondays and I realized that the card I made was a Father's day card so I am posting today instead. 
Before I give you the details on my card, if I could ask those that pray to say a prayer for some friends of mine. The dad (42) and son (15) were killed in a car accident friday morning so that leaves the mom and the daughter who just graduated high school to mourn their death and then today is fathers day. Please say a special prayer especially for their daughter.  


To make this card I started with a white top folding card base, a Key Lime panel cut the same size as the base and a white pane for the front. 
I used the Gear Up stamp set and randomly stamped it in two different to create the background. 
The greeting is from the For my Father stamp set.

Hi



I am up on the My Sweet Petunia blog today sharing this card using the newest turnabout by Concord & 9th.  The turnabouts were created especially with the Mistiin mind and they are a great way to create lots of backgrounds to use for cardmaking. 

To create this card I started with a white card base, the Original Misti, a turnabout jig, a piece of white cardstock for the background and a piece of Lovely Lavender  cardstock for the mat. 
I placed the jig in the corner of the Misti and then placed the alignment guide that comes with the stamp set over it making sure that the x lines up. I placed the stamp on the aliment guide finding the center and then picked it up with the door of the Misti. 
Next I placed the white panel on the jig in the spot marked out for it and then started stamping and turning. I used some hero arts reactive inks in some ink colors that were included in a MMH kit, Chartreuse, Thistle, Early Dawn and Morning Mist. I love these colors and hop that Hero Arts will bring them out in a full size pad. 
After I was done creating the background I used the "Hi" from the Everyday Sayings dies and cut it out of the background. I adhered the background to a piece of Lovely Lavender cardstock. I added some foam tape to the die cut and then placed it back in the negative space. I used a sentiment from the Bold Butterflies stamp set to finish the card.

Picket Fence Studios June Release and givewaway


It's release day at Picket Fence Studios and its once again Fabulous! Not only do we have lots of new products, we are having not one but three giveaways on Instagram so head over there for a chance to win. 

Now for the deets on my cards 
I had so much fun making this first card with the frogs, isn't that set super cute!
 I started with a white slimline card base and a black panel cut to the same size. I used the SDCS to cut the stitched panel out of Tim Holtz White Heavystock. Next I sprayed the Lily Pads Slimline stencil with Pixie spray and added some of our new Ombre' Grass Greens Paper Glaze. I stamped a few of the frogs from the Drop By To Say Croak set, colored them with alcohol markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. For the "water" I used the Slimline Waves stencil from a previous release, along with some distress inks in Salvaged Patina and Blueprint Sketch. 
To finish the card I added some sequins from the Pot of Gold Sequin Mix and some of the new Paper Glitz Sparkle which is hard to see in the photo but it is super sparkly! 

We are also giving away some of this fabulous Grass green Ombre Paper Glaze, just head over to our Instagram to enter





My second card uses this super cute Critters Stopping By To Say Hey. I started with a slimline cardbase in which I used the Life Changing Blender Brushes, some of the Salvaged Patina distress ink and the Slimeline Cloud Coverage stencil to create a cloudy backdrop and some Twisted Citron for the grass. Next I cut out the trees using the Slimline Trees Silhouette Cover plate die and ink blended some Gathered Twigs and Twisted Citron for color.
I stamped the bear, the squirrel and the fox from the Critters Stopping By To Say Hey set on a seperate piece of cardstock and colored them using alcohol markers and cut them out with the Coordinating die and placed them on the card front. I also used the Slimline Short Grass die to add some grass at the bottom. 
There is also a giveaway that includes this set and the coordinating dies, along with 6 others. 



My last sample of today (there will be more tomorrow), uses one of our new Word Topper dies. I absolutely love these dies and there is a coordinating stamp set for the strip. 
To make this card I started with a Slimline card base, a black panel for the mat and a white panel for the front.  I created a background using the Slimline Triangle Peaks stencil and Salvaged Patina distress ink. I used the SDCS Graduation die and cut it out in black. I added the Congratulations Word Topper die also cut out in black. The greeting is from the coordinating set, Word Topper Subtitles and I embossed it in gold to tie in the gold behind the graduate. The recipient of this card has HS colors of blue and gold. 
And there is another giveaway, you can win all the word topper dies. 

Stop back by tomorrow for more inspiration from this release.

Shake It Up


It's my week to share a card for the Beyond the Blue challenges and this week we are making shaker cards. 



To create my shaker card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. On the panel I cut out a rainbow window using the Somewhere Rainbow die by Erin Lee Creative. I added a shaker pouch behind it. To make the shaker I recycled the packaging that the stamp set came in.  I added a sentiment from a Concord & 9th set and then used foam tape to add it to the base.
