My Favorite Things

Featuring MFT products

Happy Birthday Bro!

Hi everyone

I have the honour of being a guest designer over at the Less is More challenge blog this week.

The theme is ‘personalise it’ and here is the card I made for my DJ brother using dies from Technique Tuesday and My Favourite Things.

I created the personalised sentiment using good ol’ MS Word and the Bradley Hand Font, which I love to use for my personalised cards!

The design team have created some wonderful cards for this challenge over at the Less is More blog – I hope you have a chance to check them out and join in the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!

I Heart Dad!

Hi everyone!

Both the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges have a masculine theme this week. I pulled out my Tim Holtz products for my entry! I used a crazy bird stamp and the Distress Oxide inks to colour the image, background and balloons. I love those inks!

I used dies from My Favorite Things and part of a Hero Arts stamp to create the balloons.

I couldn’t resist a bit of shimmer so I added a drop or two from my Nuvo aqua shimmer pen!

I really enjoyed making this card, but it’ll probably stay in my craft room as my own dad definitely prefers my CAS cards and so that’s what I’ll be making for him this week!!

Thanks for looking!

A floral hello

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been practising my no-lines colouring today. I stamped the gorgeous floral bouquet image from Avery Elle in Antique Linen distress ink and then used my Twinkling H2Os to colour the image.

I cut a frame using a die from My Favorite Things and added a sentiment die from Avery Elle and a smattering of gold stickles to finish off the card.

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (coral, green and yellow) and the Flower challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for looking!

You’re so wise

Hello everyone!

When I saw Barb’s guest post for Technique Tuesday a few weeks ago, I just HAD to have the sweet owl stamp. It landed on my doormat yesterday and I inked it up straight away!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and added a touch of Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for extra shimmer. I then masked off the image and used a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to anchor the little owl. Finally I added a cute sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for looking!

I’m here for you

Hi everyone!

I’ve been playing with Distress Oxide inks today – they are such fun!

I created a smooshed background that I used for the butterflies and then added a strip of stencilled cardstock that I’d sprayed with water repeatedly.

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge.

Thanks for looking!
