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!

I made this one for my grandson to wish him a great first day back to pre-school.

Thanks for stopping by!

A SUPER MFT sketch!


Another sketch, another card....time for another MFT challenge!

Here's the sketch for the week:


And here's the card:


Do you see the sketch? Spin it 90 degrees to the left, so the "stripes" are at the bottom. There it is! I used a cityscape stamp (NOT from MFT) as the pointed edge, then added my superhero boy and the saying and lightening bolts as the stripe (only 1....creative license... lol). I colored the clouds and cityscape with colored pencils to keep the colors soft and the boy with Copics so he stands out. This is going to be the first of random cards I send my grandson. He'll enjoy getting his own mail once in awhile, even though he lives just blocks from me.

Thanks for visiting!

MFT Sketch Time

I missed a week (or two) of the MFT Sketch Challenges but I loved this week's sketch and just got these stamps so I squeezed in some time to play!

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:



I wanted to try some colored pencils on kraft cardstock and they worked out ok but I'm not crazy about the pencil "lines" being seen so much (really noticeable on the bear). But it was a nice departure from markers for a change. And these forest animals are so cute, who cares how they're colored! Thanks for looking!
