Happy Birthday – MFTCC61

I’ve really got to stop working on challenges last minute. I’m switching it up this time, I did all stamping and used no dies. That’s right, all my panels were cut old-school with a paper trimmer. With this card, I’m playing along with the (very nearly not) currrent MFT Color Challenge.

Happy Birthday – MFTWSC305


I needed a birthday card for a friend last week. I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to do, and the current sketch for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge worked perfectly with it. I stamped the succulent & pot with a gray Hybrid Ink and then water colored the images with dye ink.

Happy Birthday – MFTWSC304


You know those cards/projects that don’t turn out like they looked in your mind? And on top of that you just plain don’t like how it turned out? And now it’s late, and you don’t feel like staying up late (again) to try again and the challenge deadline is tomorrow? Yeah… On the plus side, I play along with these challenges as a way of making myself use my supplies. It’s all too easy to let my supplies sit and collect dust. So in that respect, I suppose this card was a success simply because I completed it. Well, that’s the story I’m going to go with, anyway.

Stamps: Label Maker Sentiments, Wood Plank BG (MFT)
Paper: Gravel Gray, Smooth White, Silver SParkle, Green-Eyed Monster Sparkle (MFT); Distress Watercolor Card Stock (Ranger)
Ink: Green-Eyed Monster, Gravel Gray, Sno Cone, Insulation Pink (MFT)
Dies: Label Tape, Balloon STAX, Single Stitch Line Oval Frames (MFT)
Accessories Hemp Cord

Have a Monstrous Birthday – MFTCC54

Paper: Smooth White, Orange Fizz (MFT)
Ink: Black Licorice Hybrid, Boysenberry (MFT)
Dies: Frightful Friends, Diagonal Sentiment Strip Cover-Up (MFT)
