My Favorite Things Sketch 412 Challenge Cards

I made two cards for this week’s My Favorite Things Sketch 412 Challenge.  Love how sketch challenges make you go outside your comfort zone when making a card.  I was initially stumped with the horizontal banners of Sketch 412, but decided to go back to my old standby, and used Washi tape to make them.  I am wanting more Christmas cards and had plenty of matching Washi tape to make the banners.  The Washi tape has some nice foil accents that are very pretty in real life.   I used My Favorite Things Happy Christmas die so I could keep the rest of the card simple since the washi tape is already pretty busy.   My second card makes use of the Happy Christmas die-cuts and used the washi tape to make vertical banners this time.  Happy crafting!  Supplies are listed below.

My Favorite Things Color Challenge 106 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Baby It’s Cold Outside

I made a card using alcohol inks that combined this week’s My Favorite Things Color Challenge 106 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Baby It’s Cold Outside.  The basis of the card was the color combination in MFT’s Color Challenge.  I decided to use alcohol inks to make the background.  I was a bit worried it was going to turn muddy using orange, green and brown together, but I was prepared to through the attempt in the garbage if it didn’t work.  You just never know until you try, right?  I used MFT’s geometric greenery for the stamped leaves and sentiment.  It was the first time I’ve embossed on Yupo paper.  It’s a bit of a challenge to get the embossing powder to melt but not warp the Yupo paper too bad.  Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!  Crafting supplies are listed below.

2018 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Pop It Up

Here’s my card for My Favorite Things 2018 Card Design Superstar:  Innovation Master and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Pop It Up.  I made a slider card using the Volcano die set.  I really enjoyed coloring the volcano and lava.  I die-cut the images from white cardstock and then colored them with my copics and colored pencils.  I really like how the images turned out.  I did two sets so I could use the same imagery for the inside of the card.  I’ve got 3 photos of the card below with the first one with the card with the slider pull down; 2nd photo with the pull strip out showing the lava; and the 3rd photo showing inside with the volcano all done erupting.  The card front has the persimmon colored watercolor wash background and the inside has the blue watercolor  wash, returning to a calmer setting.  I used the Beautiful Blooms Die-namics and Watercolor wash patterned paper to create vegetation around the base of the volcano.   Supplies are listed below.   Happy crafting!

I am combining several challenges for this card including  My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #400 , Simon Says Monday Challenge – Fall/Autumn, and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.  The MFT inspiration sketch is shown below.  I felt inspired to use washi tape for this sketch and ended up making two cards for the challenge.  This is the first card using several different Halloween washi tapes.  Love this Birdie Brown image from My Favorite Things.  She’s so cute in her Halloween hat and cape.  I used the sentiment in one of the washi tapes for the sentiment banner.  Supplies are listed below.
