Paw Prints

 A friend asked for a sympathy card for a cat lover so I combined a few challenges and created this. The products are from My Favorite Things: You are Pawesome and Critter Condolences stamp sets. This card is going onto the MFT Sketch Challenge 507 and Tic Tac Toe Challenge 82 and SSS Monday Challenge "Frame It." I flipped the sketch on it's side for my card; I used the Layers, Shades of Red, and Die Cuts on the TTT board.

 There are times when I create cards with no stamping because I DO love die cuts and stencils. Coincidentally, that is this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "No Stamps Allowed."  This card project was made with a stencil from SSS; after applying distress ink to the elements, I mixed some Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Moonstone) with the Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and applied it over the yellow parts of the flowers. Of course this added dimension and lots of pizzazz to the card. The top of this card is sprinkled with Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine.

Thinking of You

This card project is perfect for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, "Frame It." Some of the products - Gina K. background stamp embossed in silver, Altenew Build-a-flower Hyacinth set, and the fancy frame from Spellbinders. The envelope is also a Gina K stamp. I love the color combination in this card. 

Hello Fall

Getting into the fall mood! This card is for the My Favorite Things Challenges -  Wednesday SKetch Challenge 506 and Color Challenge 149. I used MFT "Autumn Blessing" for the sentiment, Die-Namics leaves colored with Distress Ink, and a Mint Owl Stencil for the frame. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Frame It."

Bursting with Happy Wishes

 This card is for a male friend's birthday and I just love the silly image from Art Impressions "Birthday Wishes" stamp set. I die cut the panel with the MFT "Wonky Stitched Rectangle" die and used a extra black panel underneath for another layer. I often do this to "frame out" my card images. The card base here is green, picking up on some of the colors in the image. I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Favorite Stamp," Wednesday Challenge "Humorous," and Art Impressions challenge "To Die For."

Piles of Fun

 Today's card was inspired by the current My Favorite Things Challenges. I cracked open a set I hadn't used yet called "Piles of Fun." I thought the sentiment "Hope Your Day Is a Pile of Fun" was perfect for the fall. The images are colored with copic markers and the plaid is from one of the MFT patterned paper sets. Check out the sketch and color chart below. For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I used the right column, Orange, Leaves, Plaid.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

Season's Greetings

My card today was a small watercolor project made into a Holiday card. The stamp is from Penny Black (of course it's a cat!) and the rectangle die is from Spellbinders "Hemstitch." The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.
