I used Reverse Confetti Cardstock in Grape Soda, Iced Aqua and Lime Green and MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Whip Cream and Jellybean Green
I stamped all the the various images for my scene from various RC sets Honey Bear, Rain or Shine and Coffee and You with Archival Brilliance Black Graphite Pigment Ink on Bristol card and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then watercoloured the images with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I created the little scene with the Honey Bear layered on the Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cuts. The Sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti Bear Hugs Stamp set. I embellished with some grape Twine and Grape sparkly YNS Gumdrops.

Hello stampin' friends! Whoo hoo...I finally made a card!!! It has been a couple of months since I have had any desire to make a card or get inky. I just didn't have any crafty mojo but that didn't seem to stop me from shopping at Simon Says Stamp, lol. Well, I am happy to enter my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes featuring MFT Stamps.
My friend asked me if I could make a card for a wedding that she will be attending. It was just the nudge I needed to get off the couch, head down to my craft studio and get inky.
The colour combo for the wedding is Forest Green and Ivory so I used MFT Whip Cream and Kraft Heavy Weight Cardstock and Reverse Confetti Avocado Cardstock
I did some 'smooshing" on water colour paper with Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss and used the "smooshed" paper for the background paper and the Linked Chain Oval Die-namics. I cut several Linked Chain Oval Die-namics and adhered them together to give the linked chain oval die more stability and layered it over the Whip Cream Oval panel cut with the Oval STAX Die-namics and stamped the sentiment from the LJD Together Forever Sentiment Stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.
I cut RC Avocado Cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames Die-namics and the Layered Leaves Die-namics was cut with Avocado Cardstock and Whip Cream Heavyweight Cardstock. I also added a few little Kraft hearts cut with the Full of Heart Die-namics. I used various paper roses and flowers from my extensive stash of flowers and embellished with some half pearls and Forest Green Hemp twine.
I finished the inside of the card with another stamped sentiment from the LJD Together Forever Sentiment Stamp set and layered the oval panel with another die Linked Chain Oval Die-namics. I added more paper flowers and more Layered Leaves. I printed the happy couples names on Whip Cream Heavyweight Cardstock and cut it out with the stitched fishtail banner from Blueprints 2.
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes featuring MFT Stamps.

So for my February Blog Hop card I used the NEW EGG-Citing Stamp set and coordinating EGG-Citing Die set. I am SO ready for Spring, so it was a welcome break from the snow and cold to play with this SWEET set! I just have to say how much I LOVE the EGG-Citing Stamp set and the fun sentiments too.
For my card I started by doing a little inking on a panel of Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain Cardstock with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink. The stitched horizontal panel is inked too but with Distress Oxide Inks Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber. I cut the YNS Open Scalloped Circle Die Set from paper that I inked with Distress Oxide Inks in Twisted Citron.
I stamped the egg carton from paper that was inked with the Distress Oxide Inks with Your Next Stamp Premium Dye Ink in Black Olive. I then cut the various little chicks and eggs, coloured them with my Copic markers, added a little touch of sparkle with my Zig Wink of Stella Clear pen and then adhered them to the egg carton. I popped the egg carton up on the Open Scalloped Circle panel and embellished with green hemp cord and Pink Sparkly Gumdrops. I separated the sentiment and stamped the "YOU ARE EGG-Stra" (love this... reminds me of my daughter, Hannah, saying "Mom, you are SO extra"...which is true, lol) for the front of the card....
...and I continued the sentiment to the inside of the card and added another egg carton with some more cute hatching chicks...the little guy that is upside down is just SO EGG-stra ;)

Hello stampin' friends! I always LOVE the great colour combos that they have at the Color Throwdown and this week's CTD478 is no exception! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this FUN colour combo and I am beyond thrilled to be the Featured Stamper and get to join the AMAZING CTD Crew!
I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Smooth White, Sour Apple, and Banana Split and I used MFT Premium Dye Ink in Razzle Berry and Sour Apple. I also used Distress Oxide Inks in Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Broken China and Fossilized Amber
I also took inspiration from the FAB Saturday Sketch # 498!
When I saw the inspirational photo with the fun colour combo that they have for the CTD478 this week I pulled out my Reverse Confetti Smitten Mittens Stamp set. I thought this stamp set with the CTD color combo would make the perfect "punny" Valentine's Day card. I stamped the mittens with MFT Premium Dye Ink in Razzle Berry and Sour Apple and cut them out with the coordinating Smitten Mittens Confetti Cuts.
The mittens are layered over the Reverse Confetti Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cuts and I used a sentiment from the NEW Reverse Confetti Heart Filled Sentiments Stamp Set stamped on Smooth White Heavyweight Card cut out with the MFT Dimensional Banners Die-namics. I replaced the word "heart" in the sentiment with a stamped heart from the RC Unicorn Wishes Stamp set.
