THIS card from Julie using the new MFT Jungle kit inspired me.
I like the frame within the frame. I like the hearts partial background paper. I used a scrap of cork paper (what was i thinking when i bought that pack) for my partial back ground and then built from there. Using the papers from the kit i added touches of pumice stone distress ink to them to get them the color i wanted. OUCH, it hurts to cut into a full piece of paper just for the ear. I decided to do as the sample and make the “grassy hill” out of the same paper so i didn’t feel so bad. I used sequins for the spray from his trunk and made a rectangle card instead of a square. i used a red copic to color the large sequin on the tag. The sequins are also from a MFT die. I get a lot of use out of those sequins dies. I’m glad i purchased them a while back.
I think i’m going to have lots of fun with this kit. It had a lot of things in it. I’m very pleased.

Simon Says Monday Challenge -Use Metal
Sunday, April 24, 2016
Simon’s Wednesday Challenge is making it girlie. I love black and white ribbon for spring cards and have been wanting to pair some pink and this ribbon. I made a sweet little border with Hero Arts CL578 but don’t see any other names on the set. The sentiment is also Hero Arts using CL 1810. It feels good to get some of these grad cards made ahead of time.
Thanks Simon for the ideas.
Playing in Merry Monday’s purple, silver and white Christmas challenge but the linky is already closed. That’s okay. It’s good to build up the stock so i can play with other things in December cuz i get tired of making all my holiday cards at one time. For the touch of silver i embossed the sentiment onto the little tag. simple and delightful. and DONE!
Okay, that’s confusing. The unused stamp i chose is the little flower one on a sheet of sentiments from Hero Arts. I made a pattern with it on the top butterfly. The other two butterflies are stamped with some very old stampin up background stamps. The big U and sentiment are from “My Sentiments Exactly” .I jumped into the Monday Challenge with Simon Says to get me a little mojo going. Graduations are coming up and every year I am surprised with how many announcements we get. I always think we’re done but it’s never done. ha ha.
It’s been too long out of the stamp room and it doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon. I’m not complaining. Grateful I can be of help where needed. I spent this rainy day napping instead of stamping and it was a good choice.

Here’s my card for Simons Monday Butterfly challenge. I used My Favorite Things dies and then just decorated them myself.

Oh it’s so fun to play with ink and paper again. A week or so ago I was able to stop at the Stamp Shoppe in Weston and do a make and take with Taylored Expressions. I had to purchase a couple of their fun stamps and dies. I got a free one too, what’s better than that?
I love how this Hello die can be used in the middle of the card stock or cutting it on the edge of the paper would give you the die cut to glue down . I inserted a scrap of some patterened paper behind the cut out word. It was fun to make this little tag with the clouds and use the cute pattern stamps to design the clouds. I did some faux stitching across the top of the tag and used a MFT scallop stencil to give the idea of rain drops for the background. I am entering this into Word Art Wednesday #226 & #227 ~~~~A side note. I was so happy to find out why my Live Writer account wasn’t working anymore. It seems it needed a new down load to support Blogger. If you were using Live Writer and didn’t get the notice about this you can download it here and you should now be able to connect to blogger again. This makes me so very very happy. Thanks for stopping by.

Aren't the forks along the side of this just a hoot???
I'm glad I didn't as they turned into some pretty cool cards. The one with the heart was supposed to be for a SSS challenge but i never got it posted in time.
I am home recovering from the flu and don't want to take it to the hospital so figured today would be a good day to stamp and blog.
Thanks for stopping by.
