Hello! Happy weekend to you all! Today I have a card for this week's MFT WSC Sketch. You can see the sketch and the WSC details HERE in the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers. I have had this card in my head for a while, and the sketch was just perfect for it! :)
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Yesterday's day off was such a welcome break, and I accomplished much at my house! That pile of laundry is quite a bit smaller, papers are graded and lesson plans finished, and I had some extra time for stamping! I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch to make a birthday card for my father-in-law, who turns 80 this week.
I love this simple sketch by Carole, and I thought it was perfect for a CAS masculine card. The papers are from the Lost and Found Two: Breeze 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. Cardstock is Hot Fudge and Kraft. I used three Die-namics on this card: By the Numbers, Mix & Match Banners, and Let's Toast. The sentiment (also from Let's Toast) was stamped in craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
That's it for today. I hope your week is off to a good start! Thanks for visiting!
Hello there! I hope you are having a good weekend so far. It has been a marathon of basketball games for Anna so far this weekend, as her team has advanced in two tournaments. She played one game last night, two today, and we're looking at two more tomorrow! After today's games I spent a little time decompressing with some stamps and Die-namics. I made this card for this week's MFT WSC Sketch. You can find the sketch and all the WSC details HERE.
Papers are from the Lost and Found Two: Sunshine 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. I did very little stamping - just the sentiment from Sew Nifty. I kept a clean layout, but I couldn't resist adding a cork flourish and rose. :)
Happy Saturday! Today I received my new goodies from My Favorite Things, and I couldn't wait to get busy! Since it's 65 degrees today (yes, 65 degrees in the middle of January in northern Kentucky!), I went with a springlike card. :)
I kept things simple, so I'll just list the supplies I used below. I will tell you that I used MFT's new Premium Dye Ink in Wild Cherry. Let me just say, the coverage is amazing! LOVE!
Happy Saturday to you! I'm thankful for a free afternoon, because I was able to create another card for the MFT Guest Designer Contest. It's such a great sketch! You can get the contest details HERE on the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers. This card is quite a bit different from my first entry -- I went with a distressed look and subtle colors. The papers are from the Paris & Co. 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. I paired them with Sno Cone and Hot Fudge cardstock.
My resolution for 2013 is to recommit myself to the people and activities that make me a better and happier person. Stamping is definitely something that takes me to my "happy place" -- and I've really missed it! I had put it on hold to take care of other things, but I know now that I'm really not "me" without it. So I'm recommitted to making it a part of my life again. And, as the sentiment reads, I'm going to "Live for Today." :)
I hope you all are having a great weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by!
