Trick or Treat--FMS 301

August 18, 2017

Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I loved the sketch this week and it gave me the perfect opportunity to make my first Halloween card using my new MFT Happy Haunting  stamp set.  I LOVE to make Halloween cards.  This set is just too cute! 



My card is created on a white card base.  I used a piece of black and white striped paper I found in my stash for the background.  I created the top panel using distress inks and splashed a few drops of water on it for fun.  I added the stars from the MFT stamp set and used Versa Mark and clear embossing powder for shine.  The sentiment is from the Your Next Stamp set Waddles Trick or Treat.  I stamped it in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  The little trick or treaters were colored with Copic Markers and cut out using the matching dies.  I popped each image with dimensionals.  Lots of Wink of Stella was added for shine and I used a black gel pen on their eyes.  The moon and clouds are from the same set.

My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a pink frame using MFT Blueprints dies.  The stitched white rectangle was cut using the same dies.  I added splotches of paint with the W Plus 9 Ink Splats stamp set using different distress inks. The paint brushes and pot were stamped using the Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever Clear Mount stamp set.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is from the same set.  A few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Wink of Stella was added for shine.  I just love this color combo!

Sweet 16 -- PP3357

August 13, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  




The sensational Sandy is our hostess this week!  Her color challenge is so pretty!  I was a little stumped at first, but then I ended up having several ideas with the palette. Have fun and we can't wait to see how you use these colors! 




My card is created on a white card base.  I used the MFT Bold Stripes Die to create the fun frame and layers.  I used Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral stripes.  A Pear Pizzazz starburst frame was created around the white sunburst circle and adhered on top of the bold stripes frame.   I cut the "16" from Bermuda Bay using Stampin' Up!  Large Number Framelit dies.  I used the MFT Fall Florals  stamp set to create the flowers and the leaves.  Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay ink was used on the flowers and Pear Pizzazz was used on the leaves.  The matching dies were used to cut out all the pieces.  Enamel dots were used in the center of each flower.  The word "sweet" is cut three times in Calypso Coral using the Tayolred Expressions die and Glossy Accents was added to create lots of shine.  A little Bermuda Bay heart was placed in the script.  This card was created for my niece, Olivia.  She turned 16 this week.
