Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection

Just popping in to share a card using Concord & 9th's Pineapple Perfection stamps
and coordinating dies. 

I.love.pineapples. This stamp is so gorgeous and I love how the flowers help retain
the "tropical-ness" of the fruit.
Earlier on Instagram, I shared photos of how I colored the pineapple after white
embossing the image on watercolor card stock.

Using ink daubers, I could go "out of the lines" and it didn't matter because die cutting 
the image made it appear as though I did some fussy cutting.

I added a sprinkling of sequins and stamped the sentiment from Pop Art Pineapple.
For more inspiration and samples, go here to see how the Concord & 9th design team 
colored their pineapples.

CAS(E) this Sketch #240

Here's this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #240, compliments of Chrissy.

Here's my take on it, thanks to some very old (c.2013) patterned paper that I found
while doing a bit of summer cleaning.

In hindsight, I should have gone simpler with a solid paper--but I went bold.
I trimmed the paper, getting as many colors as I could on one piece, and adhered
it to a white card base. I added two strips of pink card stock and finished off
the card with the white embossed sentiment and sequins.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, September 28th and
as the winner, you could be guesting with us on a future sketch!

MFT Snow Globe Card Kit Release Day

It's time! You may now purchase MFT's Snow Globe Card Kit in the
MFT Store! Today I have one more project to share with you with an "open"
snow globe that still gives you the feeling of having one on your card.

The Snowfall Background was stamped on Latté card stock with Versmark ink
and white embossed. The snow globe shape was cut from watercolor card stock
and ink distressed. A strip of adhesive tape was adhered to the bottom of the dome
and Diamond Dust was adhered to represent a snowy ground.

The snowman was assembled and added to the dome, together with a few
trees. The sentiment was white embossed on a Wild Cherry banner, and I
inked around the card with white pigment ink to finish off the card.

Comment on all participating team members' blogs by the end of the day on
Thursday, September 21st for a chance to win a $50 MFT gift voucher!
We hope you'll enjoy this card kit and don't forget to tag your MFT projects with
#mftstamps on social media!

MFT Snow Globe Card Kit--Day 2

It's Day 2 of the Snow Globe Card Kit Countdown! This fun kit will go on sale
tomorrow, September 19th at 9PM EST in the MFT Store!

Today I'll be sharing a card using other MFT products together with the kit.

The scalloped rectangle panel from Blueprints 27 was adhered to a
Blueberry card base. The snow globe dome shape was cut from watercolor
card stock and ink distressed to resemble a snowy night sky. The snowy 
ground was adhered to the dome, then adhered to the card.

Three Bitty Bears were colored, cut, and adhered to the dome. The sentiment was
 white embossed on a strip of Blueberry card stock and adhered beneath the bears.

MFT Snow Globe Card Kit--Day 1

If you love snow globes, you'll love this month's card kit from My Favorite Things
which makes a Snow Globe right on your card! Here's a peek at the fun kit. Be sure to
visit today's post at My Favorite Things for a detailed description of the kit's contents.

Here's today's card which was fun to put together.

I cut out the snow globe dome on a rectangle panel that was cut with BP 24.
The piece was cut again from watercolor card stock and ink distressed, then
spattered with water. I added more "snow" with a white Gelly Roll pen.

The snowman was cut from white card stock and I inked around the edges
to give him some dimension. His face and "buttons" were cut and backed with
small pieces of black card stock. I adhered his carrot nose, twiggy arms, and
scarf, then adhered him to the dome. Trees were cut from Sour Apple card stock
and inked to give them dimension.

Diamond Dust was added to the plastic dome, and the snow globe was assembled
over the card base. The white embossed sentiment finished off the card.

this fun kit! Thanks so much for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch #239

Ready for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch? Here's Sketch #239, courtesy of yours truly.

And here's my take on it.

I pretty much stuck to the sketch, thanks to this Pure Innocence sunbather.
A small piece of watercolor card stock was ink distressed for the "water" and the
girl was adhered to it. The sentiment was white embossed on a banner strip and
the card was finished off with enamel dots.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, September 21st.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT September Release Replay

It's time for My Favorite Things September Release Replay when the 
Creative Team shares more inspiration and ideas with the latest release.

Here's my project using the Pop Up Alphabet Die-namics.

Before cutting the alphabet apart, I had a "Kelly Griglione" moment and thought about 
using the dies while they were still intact. After die cutting the entire alphabet (plus
the ampersand) from watercolor card stock, I flipped it over and taped down each
row because I knew I was going to ink distress over the letters.

I inked up watermelon colors using Distress inks, then spattered some water over it.
I cut out the "HI" from black card stock and adhered it over the letters on the
inked panel and used the Misti to stamp the second part of the sentiment.
Black Nuvo drops finished off the card as watermelon seeds.

Visit today's Release Replay post for more inspiration from participating
team members. Thanks for stopping by!
