Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today. Go do something fun.
I know I’m a day early, but wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July. So many people have fought and many have died for the freedoms we enjoy. Thanks to all of our service men and women and your families for protecting us!
Made this 4th of July card for some friends. I’m also entering it in the MFP SpeedyTV Friends of Speedy TV challenge for the week.
Thanks for spending some time with me today. Enjoy a safe and fun 4th of July!
On a rainy weekend in Phoenix, you have to play inside. So, I played with paper this weekend (not that I don’t on sunny weekends, too). Here is what I made this weekend:
This valentine (another for my husband) is all black paper (Black Onyx by GinaK) with Love stickers (Recollection) on top. I took a smaller piece of the black paper and embossed it. This one is being entered in a sketch challenge for MFT this week.
My Favorite Things is also having their monthly Guest Designer challenge, which is always a sketch that this one is being entered in. The teapot and cups are cut out using the Die-namics Always Time for Tea set (MFT). The cups that are embossed on the background piece are from the Signs of Autumn set (GinaK). I used Broken China (Ranger Distress) ink for both the inking on the background piece and the teapot. It’s amazing how different it looks used in different ways (I blended it on the background piece).
This one is also for the MFT Guest Designer challenge this month. I love both the Wood grain Fence Die-namic and the Sunflower Die-namics that were used on this one. The butterfly is a metal charm (Making Memories). Definitely had fun with this one.
This one is for the MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations challenge this week, which was to use a flower. I got the flower box piece from a friend and the two sentiments are from the Winter Crocus 2011 set (MFP Heinrich Collection). I stamped them with yellow ink, traced over with a fine Zig glue pen, let the glue dry and then used transfer foil on them. Unfortunately, the “fine” Zig tip was a bit too much, so the words are a bit run together, though you can see it clearly enough in person.
The layered dog card was made using the MFP Heinrich Collect Fabulous Dogs 2012 set, which I just love. It is being entered in the MFP SpeedyTV Sketch With a Twist challenge for the week.
The butterfly one is being entered in the MFP Simple Salutations challenge for the week, as well as the MFP Speedy TV Friends of SpeedyTV challenge to use ribbon creatively. I wove my ribbon through the top layers for the butterfly trail, as well as made a flower out of it. This one is also being entered in the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge for the week, though I took liberties with the sketch.
I am just loving the rain this weekend, but was happy to have time to play with paper, too. Yes, I did go out and get in the rain.
Thanks for spending some time with me!
