My Favorite Things / Wednesday Sketch Challenge #394

Sketch 394 

Hello!  I am excited to be back this week as the Guest Designer for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  

The new Die-namics Gift Shaker and Frame was perfect to use for this week's sketch.  It offered a place to shake things up!  I added some white toppings from Queen & Co. to the windows.  To embellish my window, I added a stamped/die cut Martini glass and olive from Martini Time.  This sentiment is perfect for who I'm sending this card to!  Sentiment is from the new Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings.  My panel was layered over black/white striped paper from the Black & White Basics 6x6 paper pad.

Avery Elle / Indigo


Hello!  One of my favorite things to do is stamp my own backgrounds.  The Indigo set from Avery Elle is a fantastic set to do this!  (especially if you like to do stripes like me!)
I kept with the Indigo look and went with colors of blue for my background.  It was stamped using dye inks using my Misti and just shifting my panel down to stamp each line evenly spaced.  I added this panel to a coordinating navy cardstock.  My die cut sentiment is from the Oval Burst Elle-ments and was layered over a Double Pierced Circles Elle-ments.

My Favorite Things / MFT & Friends

MFT & Friends

Hello!  I am joining My Favorite Things as a friend in their MFT & Friends series.  It gives more opportunity to share more inspiration using the newest release from MFT.  Make sure to check out the MFT & Friends blog post HERE for all the details and inspiration from other friends and the MFT Design Team!

I never have enough BIRTHDAY cards on hand.  What about you?  This release has so many products to use to help celebrate that special birthday.  

I LOVE the Happy Birthday Block Die-namics for a bold message.  This die has SO many ways it can be used whether it's layered over watercolor, inlay, negative use, letters alone, etc.  The list goes on!  I've used the negative over some rainbow striped pattern paper from Party Patterns 6x6 Paper Pad.  This gives such a bold look with both the black and the rainbow underneath.  To finish, I added 2 sentiment stripes stamped from the Yay for You stamp set with foam adhesive.

Queen & Co. / Circle Shakers

Hello!  Queen & Co. has some amazing shaker kits.  I am sharing some CIRCLE shakers that literally can be used for so many things. The circle dies that are included in this kit have that cute stitching around the edges!

I created a simple birthday card using the shaker as the focal element.  My circle shaker was made using black cardstock and added to a white notecard layered with pattern paper from Flirty Florals.  My shaker was filled with Iridescent Bubbles Toppings.

To my shaker focal point, I added some die cut flowers using dies from the Shaped Flowers Shaker Kit die cut from the Delightful Dots Paper Pad.  The flower centers are black Rubber Bubbles.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a black banner.

My second card again uses the circle shaker dies to make a shaker but this time more as a supporting element to my jar die. To a white panel, flowers from the Love Jar Kit were white heat embossed and using emboss resist, I painted loosely over the top with watered down Broken China Distress Ink.

My circle shaker element was created by adding in some of the Confetti Toppings along with some clear Pastel Diamonds.  To finish, an assembled Love Jar was added along with a fun sentiment banner.

Technique Tuesday / Berry Basket

Berry Basket

Hello Monday!  I have a quick card to share that screams SUMMER!  It uses the Berry Basket Dies from Technique Tuesday.

I created my Berry Basket using some aqua colored cardstock.  To achieve the shadow effect on the back part of the basket, I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over the bottom and then layered the top (or front) part of the basket.  I added all the die cut strawberries into the basket and a white heat embossed sentiment banner done in black.  My basket was layered over yellow gingham paper done at an angle.  A yellow strip of cardstock over the seam and some yellow enamel dots finish this off!
