Olympic Bitty Bears




MFT Olympics Challenge
Event # 4 Speed Card Making

So this was speed card making! I am a fun person and I just want to know I love playing along! Try hard not show anything really bad..(even though I may think its good!). So I had everything laid out and a plan ..(thanks Stephanie..watched the video) and good thing! Idea here was to use paper products and only die cut and quick as wink color the bears All went until I (due to speed) miss cut the bear with red balloon. Due to my genius plan I did stamp out six ...just in case ..I colored him in die cut, on it went. My phone timer goes off...done. I was down to wire.All the paper thing went on easy peasy..die cut fine (I have an electric die cutter)... there was no way to do anything else! Yeah like having a plan not fan of speed timing! So I posted a before  and after I am sure you can figure out which is which! Since I used my time my phone just goes back to start.This has been a fun challenge series..always giving us a way to stretch our skills and hopefully win a extra MFT stuff...Thank You MFT!

Party Time Birthday


Papertrey Ink
11th Anniversary Challenges
Color Challenges
The idea here was to pick one of designer color scripts...well then create! My first thought was easy peasy.. I somehow just got into big tail spin .. I tried another color script and well it was insanely over the top bright! At last here is where I landed. I had the most trouble with Vintage Jadeite...since the only thing I own this that , which is a cake plate birthday it was! I used the Invitation Basics Stamps and Dies. I stamped out the 'party time ' balloon in four different colors then die cut out the frame from that cardstock. The background is inked in Tropical Teal. My cake is inked Versa-marked on  Pale Peony,  the Bow on Aqua Mist card stock.

My butterfly is cut out of green parakeet cardstock and boosted up on foam.The cover plate is the PTI Stripe Horizontal Cover  Plate. My sticker jewels are from starform.

Ski You Soon


MFT Olympic Card Challenge
Event #2
Winter Theme
For my card I created an inky background then sprayed with with glitter mist for that winter chill feel. Then I stamped some snowy flakes. I cut little bear showing off his skiing skills all placed on a snow drifts cover up. The little loops from the Tag Builder #5 were inked in Paris Dusk Ink.

Thanks Mum



Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge
Make A Floral Card
This years anniversary set is all about the florals..oh yes I am so in! I will have to wait get it , my reward points will need to grow a bit before I can purchase them (only method of payment) . They(points) grow fast so I know I have no real worries...LOL!! The challenge at hand was create a  floral card from one of your sets...I picked some lovely Pale Peony colored Mums from my PTI garden. Oh so fresh! I used the larger flower for my design. For the stem I used the one from the Tulip Time set while keeping the leaves from the Mum set. I did a double color sentiment die cut out.
