My Favorite Things Summer School: White Space

Ok, I know, I'm a little out of order on this one. I missed the assignment that was on Sunday, and thought it started with Monday, and didn't realize until today that I missed it, so, here is assignment that I missed.

This assignment was to use white space on our project. I chose to use images from the MFT's Magical Dragons for my creation, which I colored with Copic markers. I embossed the white background with a cloud embossing folder, and made the hills using the Stitched Hillside Borders dies from Lawn Fawn, and embossed them with a dot embossing folder to add some texture. I didn't have a banner die to fit the sentiment like I wanted, so I cut a strip from white card stock, then made a fishtail with scissors, stamped the sentiment which is from the same stamp set, inked the edges, then adhered it to my card.

My Favorite Things Summer School: Symmetry

This is the last day of this session, and today's assignment is to create a card using the symmetry concept.

The images I chose where from a Recollections stamp set. I thought these feathers would be perfect for what I wanted to do, and even the sentiment was from the same set.   I really had  a good time doing all the assignments, although, I did miss the first one some how, so now I'll have a bit of makeup work to do. Sounds a bit like real!

MFT Summer School: Complementary Colors

Good afternoon, it's another day, and another homework assignment from MFT. Today's assignment is to use complementary colors in our project.

I decided to use some tiny background stamps that I had from Hero Arts, stamped in blue and orange. For my sentiment, I cut rectangles in white and blue from the My Favorite Things Inside and Out rectangle die set and stamped my greeting, which is from a Recollections stamp set, in orange on the white rectangle, then adhered them on the background piece. I may decide later to add something else to the card, maybe a little bling, but not sure what I want to add to it, but for now, this is what I have.

See you tomorrow with the next homework assignment...:-)

My Favorite Things Summer School : Repetition

Good afternoon, here I am with another homework assignment from MFT. Today's assignment is to use repetition on our creation, and here is my submission for today.

I used the MFT stamp set, Beary Special Birthday. For the repetition part of it, I chose to repeat the word " Surprise" which is one of the stamps in the set, stamped in different colors. I decided to use the same colors for the frosting on the cake and candles in the same colors as the greeting, and of course, I had to make it a chocolate!

My Favorite Things Summer School 2018: Primary Colors

It's time for summer school at MFT and today's assignment for this first session is to use only primary colors. Here is what I created for this assignment.

For my card I used various stamps from the Lawn Fawn, You're Clawsome, stamp set. I colored my little characters in primary colors using copic markers, and I used one of the dies from the MFT Inside and Out rectangles for my greeting. I had a lot of fun coloring these cute little characters, and can't wait to see what tomorrow's assignment will be. I never thought summer school could be so much fun!

52 Christmas Card Throwdown: Wreath Theme

Hello again, here I am with another challenge, this time for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. This challenge them is wreaths.

And here is my card for this challenge.

This card was made using the same wreath die set as my previos post, but I did not add the peppermings, and I used a Dazzle snowflake and border to hang the snowflake from the wreath. I also added strips of burgundy card stock that was embossed with a swiss dot embossing folder, and I used a striped embossing folder on the white background piece.

I really liked the way this card turned out, and I'm sure I will be making more of them to add to my stash for this Christmas coming up.

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #295

Hi everyone! Wow, it's hard to believe it's already June. I just realized I haven't posted since January, I sure didn't realize it had been that long. Hopefully I'll get back on the ball and post more often, and participate in more challenges.

For this post I have created a card for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge. For this challenge we where to use this picture for inspiration.

Here is the card that I made using the peppermints in the photo for inspiration.

The wreath was made using the Lawn Fawn Large Wreath die set, and for the peppermint candies, I used a circle die from one die set and the peppermint swirl from another, not sure where the die sets where from, but I did cut the peppermint swirl down to fit the white circle to make a smaller candy. After assembling my candies, I embossed them with sparkly clear embossing powder to give them a little extra sparkle. I made my banner from a My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Strips die, stamped a sentiment from my stash, then folded the ends to create a banner. To finish off my wreath, I added some red and gold Nuvo Chrystal Drops. I cut the scalloped background piece from a piece of satiny gold card stock, and used one of the pattered papers from The Paper Studio's Plaid Tidings paper pad.

I hope you enjoy this card, it was a lot of fun to make.
