Classic Dad

Hi!  Stopping by with another quick card I made featuring My Favorite Things Stamps products.  This was a card for my son's father for Father's Day.  I enjoyed working with the Soda Pop Bottles so much that I broke them out again!

This time I used the one that looks like the Coke bottle.  I cut it from dark brown card stock and created the label from white with red ink.  I cut a straw from vellum.

I based my card design on sketch #393 from Freshly Made Sketches.

Nurses Are Angels on Earth

Hey there!  Look at me, on a roll!  Here is my 3rd post this week!  I have been in the craft room a bit recently, and I've realized just how much I've really missed it!  Father's Day and the end of the school year have sort of forced me to create as I didn't have anything suitable in my stash.  The fact that my arm is feeling better and I have two new toys in my crafty arsenal (a Misti stamping platform and a Gemini Junior electronic die cutting machine) hasn't hurt either!

This card was made using Nurse Marci from La-La Land Crafts.  She was originally in the February 2016 Club La-La Land Crafts kit.  I needed a card for the school nurse at my son's school so she was perfect to color up.  She is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I added the Wings die found in the January 2019 club kit to make her an angel on Earth, as the sentiment says.

The background is made using the Hearts Forever background stamp.

Hi again!  I'm back with two posts in one week!  I had to make a couple of cards for the end of the school year, and I wanted to share the one I made for my son's teacher.  I loved the sentiment in the Soda Pop stamp set from My Favorite Things Stamps and knew I wanted to combine it with the matching Soda Pop Bottles Die-namics.  I then caught of glimpse of their current color challenge and thought it was the perfect combo for my project!  Fruity flavored seltzer anyone? 

There's still time to enter MFT Stamps Color Challenge 119 if you are so inclined.  It was a great palette to work with!

Picture Perfect Dad

Hello!  Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there!  We spent the day with mine, celebrating with a cookout.  I have been feeling much better, eating healthier, and trying to get some walking in every day.  Still easing back into the crafting, but I did make a card for my dad for Father's Day.

I'm loving all the My Favorite Things goodies I've acquired in the past few months and I have been trying to participate in their challenges when I can too.  Today I decided to play along with their current sketch challenge.  Here's my take on sketch #441.

I colored up the cute monkeys from the Picture Perfect set.  The sentiment is from the retired All About Dads stamp set.  All dies used are from MFT too.  The Dad one is also retired.

Die-namics Used:
A2 Stitched Stax Set 2
Polaroid Shaker

Copics Used:
Monkeys - E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E34, E35, E37, E39, E50, R20, R22
Background - BG10, BG13

Thanks for stopping by to see my latest creation!  Have a fantastic week!

Magical Dragons, Birthday Bears, and Cocktails

Hi there!  It's been a while. Sometimes you need a break to recharge.  I finished with all of my design teams earlier this year and with no commitments looming I was looking forward to easing off paper crafting a bit and enjoying some books and TV in the evening.   I didn't mean to disappear completely, but a pinched nerve causing some severe neck and arm pain waylaid me for three months!  An MRI and physical therapy later and I'm starting to feel up to dabbling in the craft room again.  I've made a few CAS cards during my hiatus, but I'm looking forward to finding my mojo again and getting back in the swing of things.  

Luckily my injury didn't impede my ability to shop for crafty items!  ;-) . So I have lots of new goodies to play with!

I thought I would use this week's sketch from My Favorite Things Stamps.  I had colored up this adorable dragon from their Magical Dragons clear stamp set and thought he'd make a great birthday card!  Here is my take on sketch #439:

Isn't he darling?!?!  If you want to see all the entries for this challenge you can visit the MFT Stamps blog HERE!  If you want to shop, go HERE!

I've made a few other MFT Stamps cards as well. I'll share them here for the sake of getting caught up.  If I continue to feel good maybe I can start crafting and posting a little more regularly again.

I made a quick and cute birthday card for a co-worker with this retired Birdie Brown Birthday Bears clear stamp set.  All of the dies are from MFT Stamps as well.

The next card two cards have no coloring and feature only a stamped sentiment and die cuts.  The first was a Mother's Day order.  It was a last minute request so I threw a little something together after I was told she loved Cosmos.  Cheers!

This last card was another birthday card for a co-worker for his big 3-0!  Simple yet fun, right?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope all of you out there have been well!  Have an awesome week!
