Curtain Call Challenge - August 15 - Hibiscus & MFTWSC345...May Your Day be Filled with Sunshine


Aloha stampin' friends! I'm SO glad that I was able to play along with the August 15 Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Hibiscus. It's been a busy month but I finally found the time and crafty mojo to make this Pure Innocence Hula girl card! We've been to Disney on vacation for 2 weeks to celebrate Hannah's 18th birthday and graduation from High School, then when we returned she had her wisdom teeth out, now, we are in full-swing packing/shopping mode for Hannah's big move to Ottawa, where she will be attending University. I hope you can find some crafty time and join us for the August 15 - Curtain Call Challenge - Hibiscus.




When I saw this beautiful tropical inspirational photo for this challenge I decided to pull out my MFT Hibiscus Die-namics and my MFT Pure Innocence Hula Girl Stamp set!  

I made my card with MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Whip Cream, Sno Cone, Bubbelgum, Pink Lemonade, Razzle Berry, Gumdrop Green and Spearmint


I made this following the fab MFTWSC345 sketch that they have over at the MFT Card Challenges blog

The main panel is water coloured paper that I made using the "Smooshing technique" with Evergreen Bough Distress ink and then cut it out with the stitched panel Die-namics from Blueprints 13, the Pink Lemonade strip is cut with the Vertical Stitched Strips Die-namics. I stamped and coloured up this sweet MFT Pure Innocence Hula girl with my Copics, cut her out and popped her up on the Razzle Berry lacey scallop circle frame cut with my Reverse Confetti Lacey Scallop Circle and cut out the centre with my MFT Circle STAX Die-namics

I cut the Hibiscus flower and leaves from MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Razzle Berry, Bubblegum, Pink Lemonade, Spearmint, Gumdrop Green. I Inked the flowers with Abandoned Coral and the leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the MFT CS-Blue Skies Ahead Sentiment Set on Whip Cream Heavyweight cardstock cut with the Reverse Confetti Tall Tag Trio Confetti Cuts with Jet Black Archival Ink.

Curtain Call Challenge - June 1 - Succulent - I'm Rootin' For You!


Hello stampin' friends! It is June 1st and that means it is time for another FUN Curtain Call Challenge. We have a beautiful inspirational photo for you to use or anything goes. I hope you can find a little crafty time and join us for the Curtain Call Inspirational Challenge - June 1 - Succulent.


This is the beautiful inspirational photo - June 1 - Succulent

 photo CurtainCallJune1A_edited-RS2_zpslsjoczqi.jpg

I was inspired by the photo that we have for the June 1 Curtain Call Challenge. I really wanted to see if I could make my own sweet little succulents. I searched through my stash of MFT felt and MFT flower Die-namics to create a bunch of different "succulents". I used the Royal Roses Die-namics, Rolled Roses Die-namics, Rolled Daisy Die-namics, Rolled Mum and Rolled Gardinea Die-namics. I also used the leaf dies from Blueprints 14 and Poinsettia Die-namics. I  sponged with Distress inks on the edges of the petals to get the variation in colour that is seen on many succulents. I was originally going to make a card with the felt succulents but I had too many to pick from and they were a little too big and bulky for a card. I shifted gears and decided to make a 3D project and used the MFT Trapezoid Treat Box Die-namics and the Flower Basket Die-namics cut from Snow Cone Heavyweight Cardstock

Here's a detail shot looking down on the Flower Basket filled with felt "succulents". I stuffed the basket with tissue paper and then added some burlap and then adhered everything in place.

The sentiment was rather serendipitous....the sentiment  caught my eye as it was on a treat tent (with a root-beer sucker) sitting on the shelf in my craft room. I decided to "re-purpose" this sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Sugary Sweet Sentiments Stamp set for this basket full of felt "succulents". 

I stamped the sentiment with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink on Whip Cream Heayweigh Cardstock cut with the Reverse Confetti Folded Tag Confetti Cuts. I Embellished a sprinkling of mint green sequence tied the Folded Tag with Hemp cord. 

Thank SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my card for the Curtain Call Challenge June 1 - Succulents! I hope you can join this FUN challenge!

Curtain Call Challenge May 1- Flutter and Midweek Magnolia Challenge - Hello, My Friend


Hello Stampin' friends! Welcome to the May 1st Curtain Call Challenge - Flutter! This is a FUN challenge with lots of possibilities. I decided to ink up this sweet Magnolia stamp Okay Tilda from the Lovely Emojis collection and thought she needed a friend to "flutter" by, so I stamped a Magnolia butterfly accessory stamp that I had in my Maggie stamp stash. I was also inspired by the pretty colours in the inspirational photo and went with a favourite colour combo grey and yellow with the addition of the lilac. I am entering my Okay Tilda card in the Midweek Magnolia Challenge # 163 Favourite Colours



Here is the May 1st - Flutter photo for your inspiration or anything goes

 photo CurtainCallMay1_edited-RS2_zps55vjpjg2.jpg
I made my card inspired by some of the colours from the inspirational photo with MFT Grout Grey, Steel Grey, Banana Split, Grapesicle and Lavender Fields Heavyweight Cardstock. I also did some "smooshing" again to make the watercoloured background paper. I "smooshed" with Shaded Lilac and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. I coloured Okay Tilda with my Copics, cut the image out with my Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, left the image in the die and inked with Squeezed Lemonade and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Friend Like You Stamp set on Grout Grey Heavyweight Cardstock cut with a Your Next Stamp Stitched Fishtail Tags Die. I tied the tag with some Hemp Cord and added a sprinkling of Grey Your Next Stamp Gumdrops. 

Thank SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my card for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - May 1- Flutter and the Midweek Magnolia Challenge # 163! I hope you can join this FUN challenge!
