Cards in Envy Challenge: Keep it Simple

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge .  This week our theme is “Keep it Simple.” These are cards you can make in about 10 minutes with some simple stamping.

As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.

For today’s card I used My Favorite Things “Beautiful Blooms” stamped simply and popped up for dimension. My sentiment is Simon Says Stamps “Friendship Messages” as designed by Kristina Werner. It’s all sitting on a nice kraft card base and Bob’s your uncle – it’s done.

Hope we’ll see your “Keep it Simple” cards over at the Cards in Envy challenge.  You have until March 19th to enter.

Cards in Envy Challenge: Wouldn’t That Be Sweet

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge .  This week our theme is “Wouldn’t That Be Sweet.” Some examples would be candy, cookies, cupcakes or maybe a sweet teddy bear, animal, or even a child.

As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.

For today’s card I used My Favorite Things “Twice The Wishes” card kit from July 2016. It’s sold out but the die and paper can be purchased separately.  This layered cake has a cool slider die that I elected not to use, but is really fun.  I thought the Gnome also from MFT would sit perfectly on top of this cake.  I colored him with Copics in BG45, BG23, & BG11 and skin tones in E50, E51, E11 & R20.  I finished off the card using some wink of stella and yellow Pico Embellisher Irresistibles.

What sweet treat will you show us when you enter in our challenge over at Cards in Envy?  You have until December 18th to enter.

Cards in Envy Challenge: “Just Purple”

Happy Monday!  That means it’s time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge and this week we are celebrating “Just Purple.”

I’d also like to wish my oldest, Dan, a very Happy Birthday today!!

Please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 card without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, March 27th and our design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.

For my card I used the My Favorite Things “Beautiful Blooms” card kit from January. I began with FW Pearlescent Fluid Acrylic Paint for my background.  It’s got a gorgeous shimmer.  I then used the stamp, dies and ink from the kit and finished off with an Altenew sentiment from Oriental Orchid.  The card base is cut out with a WPlus9 Die.

Purple

I’m looking forward to seeing what you enter for your “Just Purple” cards this week!

My Favorite Things Beautiful Blooms Kit

We are here in Virginia in the middle of a blizzard but much to my excitement, I got the My Favorite Things January kit delivered yesterday – WOW, is this a beautiful kit.  It’s pricey alright, but does include a full stamp set, die set, ink, card stock, design paper, sequins, and a inspiration sheet.  I’ve made this card from a sample off that sheet.  Thanks MFT!
