MFT Sketch Challenge 326


I made this card for The My Favorite Things cards challenge 326. I love these little farm animals and I had just ordered them from the last release.

This is the the sketch that this card was inspired from.

I used the Farm Friends stamp set and matching dies for the little animals and the tree.
I watercolored a piece of white cardstock for the blue sky and then cut a red square using the Peek a Boo Wonky Windows layered on top of each other.

I colored all the images with copics and cut the hill from green cardstock and the little brown fence from craft cardstock using the Rolling Hills die.

I cut a piece of red gingham paper from an MFT 6x6 pad and adhered it to a white ard base and assembled my scene..

I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set on a scrap of white cardstock and cut it out in a rectangle to adhere along the bottom.

MFT Sweet Succulents

Another card using My Favorite Things stamp and dies. They are definitely my current favorite company!



This card was created using the Sweet Succulents stamps.

I stamped the succulents in their pots with some masking on kraft cardstock , and then colored them with prismacolor pencils. Since I stamped the succulents in their pots, I had to fussy cut everything out.

The box was cut using the MFT Gift Box Cover Up die, also out of kraft cardstock. I popped it up using foam tape.

The background was made using a blending tool with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a inexpensive stencil I bought a Michael's.

I stamped the sentiment with versamark ink on green cardstock and then used white embossing powder to heat set it.

I also decided to pop the succulents up as well.

Hope you like it!!
