Playing with New Goodies


I'm taking a few moments on a beautiful afternoon to share a couple of cards I made this week. (One today after Mr. FedEx got here. Make-uh me SO Happy!)

I used my new MFT LJD You're the Sweetest stamp set. I got it because it's one I think I will use a lot. SO many cute things every month (from many, many companies) it's so hard to choose. But, one of my biggest culling processes is to think about if I would use something repeatedly or not. This one can easily be a favorite - I can tell.

I used my Harlequin stencil with a die-cut circle as a mask and Limelight ink. The cupcake is die cut using the Sweet Treats dies and CTMH cardstock in Tulip, Blush, Cocoa, and Crème Brulee. I stamped the sentiment in Hybrid Black Licorice ink using the Totally Happy stamp set. I die cut my panel using Blueprints 13 and layered it all on Ripe Raspberry cardstock base. Phew!
The current MFT Sketch challenge is my layout inspiration:
I'm also playing along with Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes and 4 Crafty Chicks - Die Cuts challenge.

Next, I'm sharing this pretty floral card I made this week. I was inspired by the beautiful Anna Griffin Designer Papers! I've wanted to layer over this piece with the roses and finally got around to doing it.

I used Black PTI cardstock for the base and CTMH Pixie cardstock for the pink mats under my accent pieces. The sentiment is stamped from a Verve Plain Jane stamp and the outline is hand drawn.

That's all for me tonight -- short post -- KP duty calls! (As always.)

Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit! Please come back soon! I love visitors and regulars, too. ;)

God Bless,
