You Make Me Happy – Color Throwdown and MFT Sketch Challenge

Handmade Heart Card MFT Stamps

Hi Guys! I know it’s been awhile! I really needed to take a break and get my house and life in order. I’ve also decided to close my Etsy shop which means no more tedious mass production and more time blogging and creating! Now I will have the time to be more consistent in sharing my cards with you.

Today I am playing along with the Color Throwdown Challenge as well as the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.

I really love this week’s sketch for My Favorite Things. I’ve wanted to use my Stitched Heart Die-namics and this was the perfect opportunity!

I started with a piece of  Neenah 100# Solar White cardstock cut in half and scored to make my card base. Then I layered Stampin’ Up! Old Olive cardstock and a piece of retired designer series paper.

I used Stampin’ Up! Banner dies to cut the banners from green and white cardstock and then layered them on my card.

NOTE: The Stampin’ Up dies have retired but I linked to a set of dies from My Favorite Things below that will make a wonderful substitution.

I used the second largest My Favorite Things Stitched Heart Die-namic to cut the heart from a piece of retired Stampin’ Up! designer paper and mounted it to my card with dimensional adhesive.

I just love the stitched detail these dies offer! Little details like the stitching and using dimensional adhesive to add height can really elevate a card to the next level…pardon the pun. 🙂

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things More Essential Elements stamp set and goes perfectly with the happy colors from this week’s Color Throwdown. After stamping the sentiment on white cardstock, I cut it out with a Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namic.

I finished off the card with some happy little yellow flowers from the My Favorite Things Doodled Bloom Stamp Set which I stamped with Versa Ink on yellow cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After cutting out the flowers with the coordinating Doodle Blooms Die-namics I attached them to my card using mini glue dots.

Hope you enjoyed today’s happy card and remember…”You make me happy!”
