Big, Huge Thanks!

Hi friends, I’m joining the MFT Stamps 2017 Card Design Superstar contest! Click here for more details.  Amazed and overwhelmed to see all the entries. So many talented crafters. I’m glad to be a part of this fabulous contest. I’m taking part in the Clean and Simple Genius category. I hope I did my best. 

I used the MFT Happy Hippo stamps set and MFT Little Lowercase Letters Dienamics for this card. I used the color palette from this week’s MFT Color Challenge #77. I was not sure if I could post my card for the color challenge this week as this contest is currently on going. So, I just used as my color inspiration for this card. (And also to keep me more focused on completing the card :P)

I stamped and colored the hippo using distress inks. This is my most favorite stamp from the stamp set. How happy he is! :) I used the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle die to create the border and adhered it to a sky blue cardstock. Next, I planned the alphabet die cutting. I did ink blending using two different colors of distress inks to give more depth to each letter. I used Broken China and Salty Ocean. Then, I die cut the Big, Huge Thanks sentiment. I die cut the sentiment again on a pink card stock and adhered to the coordinating letters to give little dimension to the letters. 

Finished off the card by adding some embellishment. I got this tiny flower confetti dot from a local craft store and I think it’s so perfect for this card. That’s all for the card. I hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! :)

Season's Greeting - Christmas

Hi there! Today I'm playing along with a fun challenge at Lawn Fawnatics blog, to create a scene. I enjoyed making this cute and fun Christmas card using Lawn Fawn products. Here is my take! 
I stamped the penguin from Lawn Fawn - Winter Penguin stamps set and colored using distress inks. The gifts and trees are from Lawn Fawn - Home for the Holiday stamps set. I used the Memento Dual markers along with the MISTI tool to create the shades on trees. Love how it turned out! :) Next, I cut out the images with their coordinating dies.

Next, I die cut the base card with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle border and few layers of snow base using Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside border dies and inked with distress ink. Finished off by stamping the sentiment from Home for Holiday stamps set.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Book Monster!

Hello dear friends! I'm playing along the sketch and color challenge at Your Next Stamp. It was a great challenge to combine the sketch and color in a card but I really enjoyed making this card. Here is my take.

I enjoyed coloring this nerdy four eyed monster holding books. He is so cute! I colored him with distress inks. I used the color palette from YNS color challenge. Created the base card using the Lawn Fawn stitched border die cut.
