“Friend”ly Craft Day

Went over to my amazing friend’s house, yesterday afternoon and we spent a few hours creating, together.  That was a lot of fun.  Here is what I made, while there.

8-30-19 MFT Sketch

This was my idea, well about the 4th or fifth idea, but the one I went with, for the MFT Sketch challenge this week.


The challenge on WeCraftCards this week was to make a card with fall colors, it had to have either the word “fall”, or “autumn” on it, as well as a matching envelope.  The bonus part of the challenge was to include 2 or more “flips” or pockets.  So, I made a flip pocket that would fit a gift card, though I made the cranberry card to go inside it, as well as a pocket on the left side, with a pull out tag.  A lot of work, but it turned out better than I thought it might.

This next one is for the current color challenge on MFT, and I got the pieces cut while at my friend’s, but didn’t get it put together until today.

Okay, I’m not thrilled with the look of the dragon, but I started with a good idea.  I really, really, really, need to practice coloring with markers.  There is some glitter on the horns, back spines/plates, and wings.  And, the markers really matched the colors.  Oh well, someone will get this freckled dragon card.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


Having Fun

So, on WeCraftCards this week, the challenge was to make a “Lift card”.  I’ve seen these before, with a different name, which I can’t remember at this point, but here’s what I made.

Used a fun holographic paper for my background, then did some Oxide Ink for the inside, with the Hero Arts Jellyfish background embossed on it using Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder so they would pick up a bit of color from the background and look more like real jellyfish.  Used water just inside the jellyfish bodies to make those lighten a bit.  The stamps and dies are all from the Hero Arts March 2019 MMA kit.  Saw that one and determined it would definitely be a good one to have.  My husband agreed, so I got it.  Love it when he tells me to go ahead and get something because I get so excited about it.

I also got the Betta Fish set at the same time.  Here are a couple of cards I made with that one:

6-3-19 Happy Bday Fishes

And this last one is what I made for my husband for our anniversary:

6-3-19 Rob Anniversary

You can kind of see from the top inside corner that shows, that I splattered both colors of the ink I used inside, as well.  The ink was what came in the kit, 2 reactive Hero Arts inks.  Splattered a bit of Spectrum Noir sparkle ink in the background and used the brush pen itself to add a bit of sparkle to the fish.  My husband loves the card.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!

Color and Sketch

Made a card last Sunday afternoon, while spending time with a friend.  Never had time to share it, however.  So, made another card today.  Wanted to share them both with you.

This one is using a new MFT stamp set called Cutieasaurus.  It certainly is cute!  This one is for the current MFT Color Challenge.

This next one was made with MFT BB Beast Friends.  I really enjoy this set!
