Hello stampin' friends! I had a chance to make a card and inked up this cute NEW PI girl - Season's Tweeting. I thought I would join the MFT Color Challenge # 33. I went looking for a sketch and fell in love with the great sketch that they have over at the Sunday Stamps Challenge # 114.
This is a great colour combo...I used MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Electric Red, Primitive White Olive and Steel Grey. I made the card-base from Kraft Heavyweight Card Stock and stamped with MFT Electric Red Premium Dye ink.
This is this Sunday Stamps sketch that I followed and I just love it...definitely one to use again!
I was excited to use my new Chevron Cover-Up that I picked up at my LSS on sale and paired it with my new Pure Innocence Stamp set Season's Tweetings. I made the stitched frame my cutting the Steel Grey Card Stock with the stitched panel from Blueprints 13 and used the largest Rectangle STAX Die-namics to cut out the centre to make a frame. I then popped it up with dimensional adhesive. I also used the Vertical Stitched Stripes Die-namics, the Stitched Circle STAX and my Circle STAX.
I coloured the PI Season's Tweeting girl and her little feathered friend with my Copics, cut them out with the coordinating Season's Tweeting Die-namics and I paper pieced the PI girl's out-fit with Authentique Joyous 6X6 papers. I popped her up on the circle panel. I stamped a sentiment from the PI Season's Tweetings Stamp set with Electric Red Premium Dye ink on Primitive White Heavyweight Card Stock and tied a little green AC hemp cord bow. I also added a smattering of cream Gumdrops.
I finished off the inside of my card too...I stamped a shadow image of the PI Season's Tweeting girl and bird in Electric Red Premium Dye Ink and used my all time favourite Layered Label Die-namics and stamped sentiment from the PI Warm Wishes Stamp set.
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card for the MFT Color Challenge # 33 and Sunday Stamps # 114!
seriously....your cards are ALWAYS chock full of details. How long does it take you to complete one card?!
Love your work!
Hi Amy! Thanks for the sweet comment, hun! Let's just say, it takes a long time,lol! But that is mostly because I'm a slow poke, lol! Definitely, several hours...sometimes longer :( It is crazy, I know, but I love it! I wish I was a little faster. I'm jealous of those that can get their cards made quickly! Some cards come together surprisingly fast (like this one) I had a good idea of what I wanted to do before I started and some take forever! That's why I like sketches and colour challenges as it speeds up the process for me.
Thanks SO much for visiting my blog and always leaving such sweet and complementary comments!
Big Hugs, t
