From My Neck of the Woods

 I bought the super cute kit from My Favorite Things last month and finally sat down to make a card, I stamped and colored a bunch of images and die cut some trees, houses and clouds, this whole set is just darling. 

I used the color combo and sketch challenge at My Favorite Things for the inspiration. 

and my didn't turn out the way I imagined but trying to put more elements on just made it too busy, so I stuck to a cleaner look.

Feel Better Soon

 With a couple friends down and out with sickness and covid, I made a few cards with a Get Better Soon theme.  I used the Fancy Florals stamp set and die set for the flowers, leaves and then used this Feel Better Soon sentiment from My Favorite Things.  I followed the color challenge for inspiration, stamped and die cut all the elements and finished it off with enamel dots from Your Next Stamp.

A Million Thanks

 I played with the current color and sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things, using all MFT products, stamps, and dies and created a card for my daughter to give to her Nana.  I love using sketches and color challenges as a jump off point and mostly stick as close as possible to the challenge.

Ever After

 This is  my last card for awhile using the Magical Unicorns from My Favorite Things, I had colored up a few from the set to use for a color challenge and didn't get them all done in the time frame I was hoping here is the one I made for the sketch challenge at MFT

I colored the unicorns and small clouds with copics and added some grass and clouds with distress ink.  I used an oval stitched die from C.C Designs and the edged stitch on the top and bottom are a die from Sugar Pea Designs.

Happily Ever After

I put together another card using the super cute Magical Unicorn stamp set from My Favorite Things, I am entering the color challenge and the sketch challenge.  I actually had a lot of fun with the colors and thought they were perfect for  whimiscal/mythical images.  The sentiment is also from MFT and is from the Essential Sentiments set.  The heart, pattern papers, and sentiment strip are also MFT.

Happy Together

 I'm a Guest DT member for September over at Let's Get Sketchy and this is the layout that I came up with, the sketch is right below.  I LOVE using sketches as it is the perfect jumping off point for creativity.  This layout definitley took on a life of its own.  I had several bold colors and lots of shapes on the sketch to work with and this was my final take.  

I love these pictures, they make the cutest Eric, Ariel and little flouder!!  I just swiped my distress pads across the paper for the bold color strips and hand colored and cut out the seaweed, my silhouette isn't hooked up yet, so the fish and crab are stickers and the "so cute, and together" words are from Elle's Studio.  I splattered some grey distress ink and added some enamel dots. I love how it finally turned out because I played with this for quiet awhile!! :)

Playing with Flowers

 I usually don't play with flower themed digi stamps or regular stamps, for some reason flowers tend to intimidate me a little.  I couldn't help but pick up the Beautiful Blossoms stamp set and the Just Vine Background stamp from Taylored Expressions and I've actually started to get over my aversion to flowers!  These flowers are so pretty and can be colored up quickly.  I also got the matching die set.

So I made a couple different cards using the daisy looking image and did two completely different styles and color combos. 

The first card is done in more fallish colors and I used the sketch over at My Favorite Things as the inspiration for the design.

and the second card I colored with contrasting colors. Everything was colored with copics, I used enamel dots and washi tape from Freckled Fawn and used the banner die from My Favorite Things.
