Castle Sisters

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Here is my take on this weeks challenge. I got bit inky with the castle. Started out with craft card stock and used a texture folder for the brick. Then distressed with TH Distress Ink: Walnut Stain. I did the towers darker than the background piece. I used the MFT Well Connected Alphabet stamps for the 'sisters' sentiment . The images are all colored in Copic then I put some clear wink of Stella to my little princess some glitter.
This is such a cute set and a lot fun to play with.

Little One

Memory Box
Winter Blues Challenge

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anything Goes

For my blue card I went with the winter baby boy. A CAS design, giving it a soft baby feel just right for a boy card but  mostly a new Mom:). I added a Powder Blue edging using a Copic marker along the vellum,

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday : Spinner Cards

PTI / Make It Monday# 273
Spinner Cards

Simon Says Stamp 
Wednesday Challenge : Anything Goes

Decided on a get well card using that set "Take It Easy'. I really could see those PJ's for many other saying as during the winter it is hibernation time. The round get well sentiment is from PTI older set "Around and About". Using the Misti finally got the result needed (who knew!) . I heat embossed with black glitter powder then die cut the PJ top , the patterned paper is from Crate Paper/ Heart Day:Adore You.
Stamped in Hibiscus Burst, Pure  Poppy, Memento Tuxedo Black, and used Copic N1/ Natural Gray.

CASE-ing DT Link Up Party # 9

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

The challenge is to case one of the designers cards. So I cased Terri Burson's card. My twist was to use the Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts background for my "Falling" theme. Then the card stock was die cut again using MFT Blueprints # 22 the stitched corner cut die. I kept the sentiment on area above the cup.
My cup is Stamped, heat embossed in black glitter powder then fussy cut.The cute pattern paper is from  Crate Paper/ Adore You.  I paper pieced the "coffee" in brown card stock from the stash.
The stamps I used are from the Simon Says Stamp new Coffee and Tea set.I put a "2" where the word is originally in the stamp. That die cut was from the Memory Box Advent Calendar set just the 2 out of the ornament. Memento Love Letter ink was used for the stamping. My glisting hearts are from Cloud 9 Design/ Heart Rain Dots.

Heart Felt

I am making the Memory Box : Plush Bright Hearts. I have made several ..they are very easy to make and die cut beautifully.My backside of the heart was done in a white felt. This was the V -day to make this! They will be hung, tucked and tied. Maybe even a garland.

Warm Heart

Here my take on this weeks at MFT. I got my secondary inspiration from their Friday post about quilts. Just that loved that. Then I knew I had this paper (OK so I did have to dig:). My take was also to cut the hole out and pop up the banner with the sentiment.
