Smile! My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

Smile! Today I have a quick post with this card I created for My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #320.

For the horizontal bars, I cut strips of retired Stampin’ Up! designer paper in alternating colors. Using My Favorite Things All Occasion Sentiments, I stamped “smile” in SU Old Olive ink on a 1″ strip of SU Very Vanilla cardstock.

To finish off my card, I added some flowers cut with My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers Die-namics (one of my faves!) and embellished with some gold sequins.

MFT Stamps Color Challenge 60

After taking a little holiday break, it’s time to get back into the swing of things. To help me get my mojo back, I’m playing along with My Favorite Things Challenge #60.

I didn’t have the exact My Favorite Things colors so I substituted with similar colors that I had on hand.  The colors I used were: Paper and More Tiffany Blue and Stampin’ Up! Flirty Flamingo, Island Indigo and Smoky Slate — while not exact I think they were a pretty close match.

MFT Stamps Jumping with Joy:

To begin, I stamped the little girl from MFT Stamps Jumping with Joy in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Copic Xpress Blending Cardstock. I cut her out with the coordinating die before coloring her in with Copic markers.

I love all of the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence girls. They are so cute and you can color them to match any color scheme.

Smile Sentiment:

Before attaching the little girl to my card,  I stamped the “smile” sentiment from MFT All Occasion Sentiments Stamp set in SU Smoky Slate ink.

TIP: Stamp the sentiment before attaching the colored image so if you make a boo-boo you can flip the white cardstock over and try again. 🙂

Once my sentiment was stamped and my little girl was placed, I dressed up my card with some sequins and flowers cut with the My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers Die-namics.

Nicole was in St. Pete for a “meet and greet” at Whim So Doodle, where they are carrying her line of stamps as well as some of her super cool “color-in” stickers…perfect for planners, tags or cards!

After meeting Nicole, I can see why they call her Mrs. Sweet — she is just as sweet as the photopolymer stamps in her Sweet Stamp shop!

Stampin’ Up! Go Wild and Watercolor Wings

Stampin Up Watercolor Wings
Watercolor Wings
The watercolor look is so trendy now and I’ve really been getting into it. Today I made another card using the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wings Stamp Set. The variety of butterflies that can be made with this set is limitless.
Stampin Up Watercolor Wings

To make this butterfly, I stamped the base butterfly in Melon Mambo and then stamped the detail layer in Memento Tuxedo Black. Because the stamps are photopolymer, you can see right through them making it easy to align the images.

Go Wild – Go Color
Do you like the pink and black designer series paper? Guess what — it didn’t start out that way. I colored this black and white pattern from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack with a Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker. Cool right? You can do this with any Designer Series Paper and marker to make something uniquely yours.

Stampin’ Up! Go Wild for Watercolor Wings

Bermuda Bay Watercolor Wings

Go Wild
Now that I’ve gotten a chance to use it, I really like the Stampin’ Up! Go Wild DSP. It has a lot of character but it’s neutral enough to go with anything.

Watercolor Wings
Today, I played with the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wings stamp set. I made all kinds of gorgeous butterflies. This stamp set is so awesome. The butterflies are stamped in three layers in whatever colors you like.

The butterfly on this card was stamped in Pool Party (base layer), Bermuda Bay (wing edges) and Memento Black (detail and body).

Watercolor Wings Detail

Design Tips:
  •  Use the lightest color ink for the base layer otherwise your detail layers won’t show up.
  • Use the Bold Butterfly Framelits for easing cutting.
  • Embossing folders add detail and texture to otherwise boring cardstock.
  • Lift sentiment and butterfly off the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
