Happy Birthday Monsters

Hiya! I made a card to play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge has the above sketch to follow...Here's my card...
I'm still practicing/getting the hang of using my Copics, so I just had fun playing with the adorable Monster Mash stamp set by Lawn Fawn. The balloons are from the Year Four set by Lawn Fawn. The greeting is from the Chocolate Greetings set by MyCreativeTime. The patterned papers are from the Take Note 6x6 pad by Doodlebug. OH, but the yellow patterned paper is from the Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 pad by Doodlebug

  I hope you have a happy weekend!!!

Tag it Tuesday

Hello! It's Tag It Tuesday at MyCreativeTime. As usual I've put my tag on a card. ;) I used a tag from the Tag Die Layers set. I stamped it with the Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background set. I used the stars from the adorable new Thanks For The Lift set to make the background. I stamped the Enjoy The Little Things greeting on a vellum star cut from the new Stitched Star Dies. I stamped that again on white cardstock and cut out and popped up the little banner. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more creations.

You make my tail wag

Hello! I made this card to enter in both the MFT Sketch and MFT Color Challenges. I used the adorable You Make My Tail Wag set from MyFavoriteThings. I stamped and colored the doggy using my Copic markers. I'm still getting the hang of Copics, so be gentle. ;) I stamped the paws and bones also from the You Make My Tail Wag set on the Stitched Capture Frame from MyCreativeTime. I used the Fun Stitched Edges along the bottom. And here is the card open...
I had to do a little card surgery to make this work. LOL! I had accidentally made this a top folding card, so my doggy was hanging upside down. HA! So I lopped it off and made a side folding card with a little hinge. Problem solved. :) The greeting inside is also from the You Make My Tail Wag set. BTW there is acetate in the window. :) 

Hope you're having a great weekend!

MCT 42nd Edition Release Blog Hop!

Hello! You should have arrived from Lucia's Blog, if not, head HERE to start at the beginning. For my card today I used the beautiful new Believe In Your Dreams set. I used the coordinating dies from the Believe In Your Dreams set to cut the feathers from the panel I made with the Stiched Rectangular Frames And More Dies. I then stamped the feathers with Stazon ink on vellum. I used R81, 83, and 85 Copic markers to color them from the back to mimic the ombre of my card base. I adhered them behind the panel, and adhered patterned paper behind the vellum. The patterned papers I used are from the Capture Life 6x6 pad by Echo Park. The greeting is also from the new Believe In Your Dreams set.

MCT Sneaks day 4

Hello! It's day 4 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Thanks For The Lift set. Is that chubby little plane not the cutest?! :)  I used my Copic markers to color the plane. I cut out the plane and banner using the coordination dies that come in the Thanks For The Lift set. Love that! I used the Cartoon Cloud Background and Stitched Grass Die inside my shaker. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for the frame. I filled my shaker with sequins and these little stars. To finish it off, I added wink of stella to the banner and the windows on the plane. I also added glossy accents to the windows.

MCT Sneaks Day 3

Hello! It's day 3 of sneaks at MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Fun Stitched Cloud Dies and The Sky Is The Limit set. I made a very subtle sky wash with tumbled glass distress ink and water. I cut the Fun Stitched Clouds out of vellum. I gold heat embossed the hot air balloon, banners, and sentiment from the new The Sky Is The Limit set. I used abandoned coral, dried marigold, scattered straw, cracked pistachio, and tumbled glass distress inks to watercolor the balloon and banners. I finished off the design with a few gold sequins.
