♥ Getting Sketchy with MFT ♥


This week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog we are showcasing products by My Favorite Things. And when I saw this week's fun sketch over at the My Favorite Things Blog, I thought I would play along! I used the School Days Clear Stamp Set by MFT on my card. Did I mention before how much I love this set?! :)


I used papers by Farmhouse Paper Company as well as a Doodlebug Heart, star brad and a Maya Road Mini Wood Ruler.


Here is the fun MFT Sketch! You still have a couple of days left to join in on the fun! ;)


Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. The falling hearts on my blog were getting on my nerves! LOL

♥ School Days ♥

I'm so sad Summer is almost over already! My oldest will be starting 3rd grade and I can't believe it!! Wasn't he just born!? And my youngest is turning 4 on the 28th and starting preschool! Too much for this mommy to handle! I want my babies under my mommy wings all the time! Am I selfish? Maybe, but in this case, probably normal mommy selfishness! ;)


We have a brand new challenge starting today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is... BACK TO SCHOOL!

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by My Favorite Things! I am using the School Days Clear Stamp Set on my card. Love all of the cute images in this set! Perfect to make a card for a student or teacher!


I paired up the stamp set with a Maya Road Wood Mini Ruler, some twine and Liquid Pearls in White Opal.
The papers are by Crate Paper from the On Trend line. I used the Lipstick Red and Audrey Blue Stamp Pads by Simon Says Stamp as well as a few Distress Markers.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Summer Butterflies ♥

Happy Wednesday to you all! Can you believe Summer is almost over? It makes me sad, even though I ♥ Fall! But to keep the Summer vibe going a little longer we have a fun new challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge...Summer!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing Exclusive products by none other than Simon Says Stamp! :) I used several Simon Says products on my card this week. I first started with the Bitty Butterfly Stamp and Dies Set. Love me some butterflies!!


I die cut some using Vintage Paper by Simon Says, Vellum and Distress Cardstock by Ranger. I stamped the butterflies using different inks from the Sweet Treats Ink Pad Set by Simon Says.


For the background I used the Large Moroccan Stencil by Simon Says Stamp with some White Gesso. After the Gesso was dried I applied some of the inks using a Round Blending Tool. The woodgrain paper is from the Sew Lovely Kit by Carta Bella. I finished off the card with some Antique Ruler Trim, White Opal Liquid Pearls and a piece of a paper doily.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Make it Sparkle...Says Simon! ♥

It's time for another brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want your cards to SPARKLE! You can use glitter, sparkly gems, shimmery paper, Stickles, etc!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Neat and Tangled and/or Jane's Doodles. I chose the On the Strip 2 Clear Stamp Set by Neat and Tangled for my card. I stamped all the strips diagonally on a white piece of cardstock using inks from the Simon Says Sweet Treats Ink Pad Set and the Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad by Tim Holtz. After the inks were dry, I ran my Glue Pen over the inks and added lots of Iridescent Glitter.


The stamped sentiment is from the True Love Stamp Set by Ali Edwards. I finished off the card with some Prima Crystal Hearts, May Arts Natural Twine, a My Mind's Eye Brad, punched heart and a pearl.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ The Shabby Tea Room Guest Designer ♥

Happy Monday everyone! (ugh!) Well, there is one thing that is sure to make you smile! This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! It's called Rainbows and Raindrops! It is to create a card/project based on this sweet inspiration photo! And I am lucky enough to be Guest Designing there this week. :)


Here is my card based on the inspiration photo. I used the Rainbow Die by Paper Smooches along with different colors of cardstock to match the colors in the photo. The Chevron Cloud Die is an exclusive by Simon Says Stamp as well as the little hearts which are from the Heart Rainfall Die Set.


The woodgrain paper is from the Base Coat III Pack by Kaiser and the cream colored paper is by Marion Smith Designs, Nirvana. The sentiment is from the New Beginnings Clear Stamp Set by My Favorite Things. I finished up the card with some seam binding ribbon and a sparkly gem.


I hope to see you playing along this week at The Shabby Tea Room! :) A big thank you to Debbie and the Shabby Girls for having me back this week!

hugs...
