United We Flourish with Ellen Hutson and MFT


My Favorite Things is the featured company for this month's United We Flourish
campaign with Ellen Hutson LLC.  An exclusive set--Good Friends--is now
on sale and available only in the Ellen Hutson store!

Here's my card using this fun set that will appeal to both dog and cat lovers alike.

Rather than color in the images, I went for the chalkboard look. I stamped
all of the animals with Sweet Tooth pigment ink onto Steel Grey card stock.
The heart, ball of yarn, and bone were stamped with Distress Oxide inks,
then colored in with colored pencils.

The panel was cut with a stitched rectangle and adhered to a Stone Gray
card base. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of ink distressed paper,
then trimmed it out with a banner and popped it up on the card.

Visit today's post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration from our Creative
Team and guests, then head over to the Ellen Hutson store to grab your
 Good Friends set!

CAS(E) this Sketch #244


Chrissy brings us this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #244.


And here's my take on it--a card made with all dies.


  Two maple leaves were ink distressed and adhered to a kraft card base.
Since I wanted them to hang over the edge, I trimmed the card so it would
still fit into an A2 envelope. The sentiment was cut from brown card stock
and adhered to the leaves. The card was finished off with a few enamel dots.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the
sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, Oct 26th

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #355


Here's this week's MFT Wed Sketch Challenge #355.
 

And here's my take on it. Oh, I love a simple sketch!

 

I stamped a Polar Bear, colored him with Copics, then cut him out with the
matching Die-namics. A strip of striped patterned paper was adhered to a 
Grout Gray card base. Icebergs were adhered to the card and the bear was
popped up on top of them. I added the sentiment and finished off the card
with a few white stars.

$50 MFT gift voucher as the random winner of the challenge! Hope to see
you in the gallery!

CAS(E) this Sketch #243


CAS(E) this Sketch #243 is a super simple one from me.


And here's what I came up with, thanks to an already colored witch sitting
in my stash of die cuts.


I tried monochromatic coloring with Copics on Birdie Brown's witch. She was
adhered to striped paper with an orange strip for a pop of color. I stamped
the sentiment and finished off the card with enamel dots.

and join us if you can! Link up your card(s) by Thursday, October 19th.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #354



Have you met this week's Wed Sketch Challenge? Here's Sketch #354.

And here's how I interpreted the sketch.


After preparing a top folded card, I cut a piece of patterned paper and ink distressed
around the edges before adhering it to the card base. A small rounded rectangle was
cut from watercolor card stock and ink distressed, then spattered with water.

Some leaves were white embossed, ink distressed, then cut with the matching
Die-namics. The fox was stamped, colored with Copics and (gasp!) I fussy cut
him before adhering him over the leaves. The card was finished off with a
white embossed sentiment on a speech bubble.

for all the details, and come join the weekly sketch challenge!

Essentials by Ellen October 2017 Release




The new Essentials by Ellen October 2017 Release went live two days ago and
it's chock full of fun and cuteness from Julie Ebersole and Brandi Kincaid.



I got to play with the Snailed It set, but unfortunately ran out of time (I'm 
currently away on a trip!) to share more than one project with you.
But it's a cute one!


I love the whimsical look of the images and stamping them in unexpected colors
made them look like they came out of a storybook.

Using the Misti, I stamped the images twice with sometimes two colors, then
added the grass with flicks from a Copic YG03 marker. I trimmed out the
panel and adhered it to a kraft card base, then finished off with the super 
cute and punny sentiment.

Stamping solid images with several colors gives the appearance of "no line"
coloring, doesn't it? Stress free no line coloring!

You can find the entire new release here in the Ellen Hutson store. I hope to
share more projects when I return next week! Thanks for stopping by.

MFT October Release Replay Challenge



It's time for MFT's October Release Replay Challenge, when the Creative Team
shares more inspiration and fresh ideas with the recent release.

I chose to play with the Drifts & Hills Stencil and created an ocean
 waves background for a sweet narwhal.


Using two Distress inks, I stenciled four sides of the stencil over a watercolor 
card stock panel, then spattered water over it and adhered it to a Stone Gray
card base. The narwhal was stamped, colored with Copics, cut with the  
matching Die-namics, then adhered over the stenciled piece.


The sentiment was white embossed on Blueberry card stock, then cut with
a sentiment strip and popped over the narwhal. Schools of fish were stamped
on the water, and the card was finished off with Nuvo Morning Dew Drops.

Visit today's Release Replay post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration
from the Creative Team using  products from the October release!
