My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 170...Easter Wishes

Hello stampin' friends! I haven't missed a MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch yet this year...I'm hoping I can do them all this time! Here is the card I made with this week's sketch MFTWSC170! I've been admiring all the gorgeous creations by the MFT DT with the gorgeous Lily Die-namics....both coloured with Copics or cut from Heavyweight Card Stock the Lily Die-namics makes beautiful cards. Jeniffer McGuire also has a fabulous video tutorial on how to colour the Lily Die-namics with Copics...I had to give this great tip a try!

Here is the fabulous sketch that I used....definitely one to use again!

We are renovating/redecorating and this colour combo grey with a touch of yellow as an accent is the colour scheme for my living-room/kitchen...the touch of sunny yellow just makes me happy!

I made my card base from MFT Replenishments Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock and matted with Steel Grey, Lemon Drop and cut the Grout Grey Heavyweight Card Stock with the Swiss Dots Die-namics. The rectangle panel is cut with the Pierced Rectangle STAX and Rectangle STAX and I stamped with Grout Grey Premium Dye Ink with the MPD Distressed Background Blocks Stamp.  The sentiment is from the LJD Easter Bunny Stamp set, stamped with Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink on little flags cut with the die from the Blueprints 10.

I cut the Lily Die-namics from Copic X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with my Copics. I really recommend watching Jeniffer McGuire's video HERE. I picked up  several great tips on how to colour the die-cut flower.  I even appreciated her tip on adhering the little die-cut bits and pieces to a larger sheet of cardstock with temporary adhesive so they stay put when you're colouring. I never think of those little time saving ideas that make things just a little easier and less stressful. I added a little Clear Wink of Steela to the flowers and leaves for some sparkle, I tied a yellow AC Hemp cord bow and added some Your Nest Stamp Silver Gumdrops.

I finished the inside too...I added a few more Copic coloured Lilies and sentiments from the LJD Words Of Inspiration Stamp Set.

 Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card for this week's My Favorite Things Stamp Wednesday Stamp Cub # 170!
