Retro Sketches 136

Two posts in one week!  Can you believe it?  School was canceled today due to a water main break outside of the building, so I decided to head to my craft room and create.  I pulled out my MFT stamps, found a sketch and color combo that inspired me, and got busy.

 No patterned papers were used on this card.  The pink chevron pattern was stamped using a patterned stamp.


Melissa always has the prettiest color palettes on her blog.  I love purple, almost as much as pink, but you can never find purple patterned papers.

Sweet Sunday Sketch 240

Hello!  I have a card to share that I made Sunday afternoon while crafting with my friend, Marsha.  She's a Stampin' Up demo and always shares her stamp goodies with me.  For this card I went with several layers on the flowers.  Let's just say that I used a good bit of foam tape.  Ha!

With the card laying down, you can see all the layers on the flowers and sweet little butterfly.  The card base is popped up using foam tape as well.

If you have any questions about the products I have used, you can give Marsha and email and she will gladly point you in the right direction.

I used the sketch at Sweet Sunday for my creation.

Four Feathers

Hello again!  At least it's only been 19 days since I posted last, instead of a full month.  Ha!  Last weekend I had a fun time crafting with my sweet friend, Marsha.  She is a Stampin' Up demo and was kind enough to share her new goodies with me.  I created this masculine card using some of her new stamps and dies.

This fabulous stamp set is called Four Feathers and it has matching Framelits dies that made this card super easy to put together.  You can find the links to these products at the end of  Marsha's blog post HERE.  I don't recall the colors used for the feathers.  If you are interested, you can send her an email and I'm sure she would be happy to point you in the right direction.

Get Well Soon...take care of yourself

Wow!  It's been over a month since I posted last!  I can't believe how fast the summer has come and gone.  School has started back and I am back to working.  With the beautifully, mild summer we had, I didn't have the desire to coop myself up in my craft room.  I did however, want to make a card for a co-worker who is in the hospital.  I was shocked at how fast this card came together.  With the awesome sketch at MFT, this was a breeze to create.  

I searched for a card in my stash to give, but they were all too girly and I was in need of a masculine card.  This color palette seemed to be manly enough, in my opinion.


Here is the sketch I used from MFTWSC193.

MFT Color Palette Challenge #7

Hello again!  It's been a month since I posted last.  This summer has been very busy for me and school will be back in session before you know it.  I'm looking forward to a new school year and being able to see the kids from last year as well as meet the new kids starting in the fall.  I count myself lucky to have a job that I enjoy going to each day. 

 With that being said, I have a card to share that I made nearly three weeks ago and didn't have the time to post.  MFT has their color palette challenge up and there is only a few days left to play along.  I squeaking in under the wire.  

The yellow and orange patterned papers were stamped using MFT stamps.  I have loved creating my own patterned papers with their array of stamp designs.  One can NEVER have too many birthday cards, right?  Now if i can only remember to send them out and not let them accumulate in my craft room, I'd be golden.
