The rich colors reminded me of balloons for some reason so I did a birthday card full of balloons! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut a bunch of balloons using Balloon STAX Die-namics from X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with Copic markers and added highlights with a Uni-Ball White Gel Pen. On another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock, I arranged them like I wanted, drew the “strings” with a black Copic multiliner pen and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.

The sentiment is a combo of Cause for Celebration Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and part of a sentiment from BB Birthday Bears stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I finished off with some enamel dots.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch.

I finally got a chance to use the recently released Critter Clan stamp set and Critter Clan Die-namics from MFT’s March Release for this sketch. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then did a watercolor night sky on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and popped it up on foam mounting tape after stamping the sentiment from Critter Clan. I added a big ol’ moon, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock with Tag Builders Blueprints 6 Die-namics and stamped with Distressed Patterns and Cement Gray dye ink. I popped that up on foam tape and added a Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Stone Gray card stock.

Next I stamped the owl image from
Critter Clan and the limb from Harvest Buddies on X-Press It Blending Card with black Licorice hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers and added them to the scene with foam tape.

Many Thanks–Color Throwdown Challenge #435

CTD435_2017mar22


Hello there! It’s time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! My girl Jodi is our hostess this week and she has chosen a great color palette for us to play with.

I went CAS with this card in order to really highlight these gorgeous colors. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then on more Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped Whimsical Woodgrain Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and popped it up on the card base with foam mounting tape. Since I planned small areas of color, I wanted a distinct background but one that would not take away from my focal point.

Then I stamped an image from LJD Geometric Greenery with Black Licorice hybrid ink on Ranger Watercolor Paper and colored them with Peerless Watercolors. I popped them up with foam tape on a bundle of white thread and added the sentiment, stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 22 Die-namics, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some matching enamel dots.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD435 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd435 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented March Guest Designer, Lisa Lara!
