More Gnomes!

I had colored up several images from the MFT You Gnome Me stamp set when I first got it.  I have a pile of backgrounds and images colored up that never made it on a card in a basket that I keep.    Every once in a while I will rummage thru and create a card from all the hodge podge of stuff.   Here is one that turned out pretty cute.     Thanks for stopping by!

My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Fathers Day Card with Superboy

Hope you have had a wonderful weekend!    I decided to make a Fathers Day card with a new stamp set from MFT - Super Boy.     I colored him with my Copic markers.   His hair was a bit of a challenge.  I am used to coloring girl hair, have not had many boys to color!   

Stamps:  MFT Birdie Brown Super Boy, Writing tablet background
Ink: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, Red Hot, Lemon Drop
Papers: SU Basic Black, MFT Red Hot, Smooth White, Xpress it
Tools: WRMK Corner Chomper, MFT BB Super Boy die, ME City Scape, Wink of Stella Clear

I think he turned our super cute!    One thing I realized, I need to look for more boy images to color.   I think for my next Super Hero Card - I will combine the Super Boy with You're Super Girl.   

Here is a link to a card that I did recently making a Mother's Day card for my mom using the Super Girl.  

Thanks for visiting me today!!  Happy Crafting!

Shake, Shake, Shake!

Here is a card that I made a little while ago but never posted on my blog.   It is a shaker card, I don't make them that often and this one about drove me nuts!   I was trying to do some layers and did not realize that my foam tape did not close up the shaker all the way.  First shake of the card and sequins go flying!  

Anyway, I made it with the Mama Elephant Ella & Friends Stamp set and some left over papers that had been cut for a previous card.

Stamps:  ME Ella & Friends, MFT Linen Background
Ink: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, SSS Sea Glass, Versafine Onyx Black
Papers: MFT Smooth White, Red Hot, Sno Cone, Copic Xpress it
Tools:  ME Ella & Friends Dies, ME Landscape Trio, MFT Stripes Coverup, Pretty Pink Posh Sequins, Clear Embossing Powder

My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge - A Mother's Day Card

Hey everyone!   Hope you have had a great weekend.  I am sharing my card that I made, I only had an opportunity to make one this weekend.    I decided to do my Mother's Day card using MFT Birdie Brown You're Super.  I did get my new MFT items in from this month's release and got some really cute stamps sets that I cannot wait to ink up.   However, when I looked at this sketch I could only think of this stamp set to use.       I created Super Woman for my mom!   I also did something that I have not done in a long time, paper piecing.    I had colored her all up but was not satisfied with the colors and decided to go with the paper piecing as the papers matched exactly the way that I wanted.  

Stamps:  MFT BB You're Super, Simply Circles Background
Ink:  MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, Steel Grey, Versamark, SSS Fog
Papers:  MFT Nightshift Blue, Red Hot Red, Smooth white, Steel Blue, Echo Park Trend Setter
Tools: MFT Blueprints 13 & 16, Pierced Fishtail Flag Stax, BB You're Super, Clear Wink of Stella, Clear Pico Embellisher, Hero Arts White Embossing powder, MFT Accent It Rock & Roll

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!
