MFT Product Launch...

It's Product Launch over at My Favorite Things!  There are so many fun new products this month, but I had to grab my favorite just for today.  I used the new Soda Pop products for this card....


First, I used the Stitch Cover Up Companion to make a shaker card of sorts.  I added in the Bottlecaps  with some silver yardstick and stamped the images from the Soda Pop Stamp set.  I attached the bottle die on the card front after stamping it in Orange Fizz and then covered that with the straw and vellum.  I added some dots along the top to represent the "bubble over".  I also added in an Orange Fizz envelope to match!


I know the girls have lots to share so stop over to the MFT blog to see all the links you can check out.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Pinterest Inspired Challenge...

I am so excited to be joining the girls over at the new challenge blog called Pinterest Inspired.  They have the perfect CAS inspiration photo today but first off let me share my card...

Pinterest Inspired Challenge

I used the triangle from PTI's Sketched Shapes to create this pattern using PTI's Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain and Raspberry Fizz.  I popped up the card front on the card base and then added in the gold sentiment.  I love these Swoosh die by Maile Bells over at PTI.  SO cute!

I'm here for you...

I have another card using my several MFT goodies.  I love love love the new Four Way Chevron Cover Up die and I wanted to use it in a little different way.

August 2015 MFT

I clipped the top of the cover up die so I could use just a piece of it for my card front.  I added in the Pierced Fancy Flourish in Vellum and then topped it off with a butterfly die that I added color to.  To finish it off, I added in 3 mint enamel dots and a sentiment.

I am off to go and sit on the porch.  It's gorgeous outside and I need to soak it in.  I love when the weather changes and it gets cooler.  Especially after the crazy hot we have had here this summer!

Hope you have a great Sunday!

SAF 2015: Make it Work


We've made it to our last Stamp-a-faire project of the day. This one is a good one!  I have a project that I started for the August release and then didn't love where it was going.....


So for this challenge it was to make it work.  I continued to work on it and changed it up a bit to this....


That big piece of Smokey Shadow bothered me so I changed it up one more time and got this....


The leaves are stamped in Spring Moss to match the card base.  I used Scribbled Sentiments on the first try so for this card, I fussy cut out each letter.  I added in some scored smokey shadow on try 2.0, so on this one I cut that down into a smaller strip.  I think I like version 3.0 better!


Now I am tempted to go back and get that Unconventional Materials challenge card and make it work.  I don't love that one so I am going to have to go in there and do some work!  lol

I hope that you have had a fun day and I am so glad you could hang out with all of us.  Stop over to Nichole's blog to see the wrap up for the day.  There is still more time to play along so pick a challenge and jump in, if you haven't started yet.

Have a great rest of your day! 

SAF 2015: Runway Challenge


It's Runway Challenge time!  We all have chosen different Runway looks for inspiration for a card.  First off, here is the photo I chose....

(Photo Pin)

To pull off this look, I knew instantly I would use Garden Grace for the flowers and fined look. 


I stamped the first layer in Berry Sorbet and the outline in Pure Poppy.  The leaves are Simply Chartreuse.  I added in the sentiment in True Black and to finish it off, I cut the card front at an angle and added it to the card base with foam backing.  I felt like that angle also mimicked the dress in the inspiration photo.  I did add some Rainstones to give it a little more detail. 


Head on over to Nichole's blog to see what the rest of the team has for us today.  You can also see all the details on how to play along too!  Thanks for stopping in!
