 I switched out the flower for the sentiment tag since I used the flowers from the LJD Easter Bunny Stamp set for the focal image!

I used MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Sno Cone, Banana Split, Spearmint and Sweet Tooth

I made the card base from Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock and matted with Spearmint Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the panel from Blueprints 1 and the stitched panel is cut with the die from Blueprints 13 in Sno Cone Heavyweight Card Stock. I stamped the Banana Split Heavyweight Card Stock with the Wood Plank Background Stamp in Banana Split Premium Dye Ink.  I used LJD Easter Bunny Stamp set and LJD Easter Bunny Die-namics; stamping the basket in Natural Premium Dye Ink and the flowers in Banana Split Premium Dye Ink the leaves in Spearmint Premium Dye Ink and the centres of the flowers in Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink.

I layered the flowers and basket on a Pierced Circle cut from  Sno Cone Heavyweight Card Stock and stamped the sentiment from the LJD Easter Bunny Stamp set in Smooth White Heavyweight Card Stock with Natural Premium Dye Ink and tied with an AC green Hemp Cord and a sprinkling of Sparkly Lime Green Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp. I used my Wink of Stella Clear Brush Marker to add a little sparkle to the leaves and flowers.

I finished off the inside of the card...I stamped the flowers and leaves from the LJD Easter Bunny Stamp set on the Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the stitched panel from Blueprints 13 and stamped sentiments from the LJD Easter Bunny Stamps set Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink and Natural Premium Dye Ink.

Thanks for stopping by and having a little look at my card for the My Favorite Things Stamp - Wednesday Stamp Club # 171 and the Color Throwdown # 287!

My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 170...Easter Wishes


Hello stampin' friends! I haven't missed a MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch yet this year...I'm hoping I can do them all this time! Here is the card I made with this week's sketch MFTWSC170! I've been admiring all the gorgeous creations by the MFT DT with the gorgeous Lily Die-namics....both coloured with Copics or cut from Heavyweight Card Stock the Lily Die-namics makes beautiful cards. Jeniffer McGuire also has a fabulous video tutorial on how to colour the Lily Die-namics with Copics...I had to give this great tip a try!



Here is the fabulous sketch that I used....definitely one to use again!

We are renovating/redecorating and this colour combo grey with a touch of yellow as an accent is the colour scheme for my living-room/kitchen...the touch of sunny yellow just makes me happy!

I made my card base from MFT Replenishments Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock and matted with Steel Grey, Lemon Drop and cut the Grout Grey Heavyweight Card Stock with the Swiss Dots Die-namics. The rectangle panel is cut with the Pierced Rectangle STAX and Rectangle STAX and I stamped with Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink with the MPD Distressed Background Blocks Stamp.  The sentiment is from the LJD Easter Bunny Stamp set, stamped with Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink on little flags cut with the die from the Blueprints 10.

I cut the Lily Die-namics from Copic X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with my Copics. I really recommend watching Jeniffer McGuire's video HERE. I picked up  several great tips on how to colour the die-cut flower.  I even appreciated her tip on adhering the little die-cut bits and pieces to a larger sheet of cardstock with temporary adhesive so they stay put when you're colouring. I never think of those little time saving ideas that make things just a little easier and less stressful. I added a little Clear Wink of Steela to the flowers and leaves for some sparkle, I tied a yellow AC Hemp cord bow and added some Your Nest Stamp Silver Gumdrops.

I finished the inside too...I added a few more Copic coloured Lilies and sentiments from the LJD Words Of Inspiration Stamp Set.

 Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card for this week's My Favorite Things Stamp Wednesday Stamp Cub # 170!
