My Favorite Things

Featuring MFT products

Hi there!

There’s a fabulous sketch over at the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week and here is my entry.

I used some gorgeous distress oxide inks together with dies and a stamp from My Favorite Things.

I love those distress oxide inks – they are amazing to work with and blend so nicely! Fabulous!

Thanks for looking!

Uncork and Unwind!

Happy Friyay!

It’s time to uncork and unwind! Yay!

There’s a sketch challenge at the Retro Rubber challenge blog and here’s my entry! I love how this challenge is making me revisit all my old wood-mounted rubber stamps. I’ve had this image for AGES. At least 8 years, I think! Where does time go? Anyway, there was no manufacturer on the stamp, just a code and luckily Google was able to tell me that this stamp is by Rubber Romance! It’s a great image to colour!

Anyway, I paired it with a very new (to me) Reverse Confetti sentiment and then used a My Favourite Things stencil to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!

Hi everyone!

It’s sketch week over at the Less is More challenge, and here is my entry! I used the colour combo from this week’s Colour Throwdown challenge (orange, green and brown) for the image and also the background. I stuck some glitter paper behind each of the owls so their eyes and wings sparkle a bit!

The owl die cut is one of my favourites – it’s by Cottage Cutz – and I added a My Favourite Things  sentiment to complete my entry for both challenges!

Thanks for looking!

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!
