More Fun in the Sun!

I've been busy enjoying summer and hope you have too!  I've also done some creating and it really is time to do some organizing! I've had this card on my computer for awhile now and intended to get it posted while we were on vacation in early July-didn't happen!! 
 Besides using awesome My Favorite Things products I also used one of their terrific sketches!! Wish I'd gotten it posted during the week of the sketch as I'd planned! I'm not on Instagram or Twitter, but it sure would be fun to be 'Spotted' by MFT!  Oh well, not this time!!

Anyway, I stamped heavy white cardstock with the MFT grid BG stamp.  I used the Lawn Fawn plaid 6 x6 paper for one banner and raspberry fizz (PTI) and canyon clay (PTI) for the other banners. They are cut with MFT dies.
The dotted paper is from PTI.  The images from the Pure Innocence set Fun in the Sun set is colored with Copic Markers and mounted on dimensionals. Below is a close up. I know you can see spatters on her leg. She was too close to the area where I was playing with Colorburst to make the BG for the previous card post. I guess it's the 'surf' spraying up on her!!

See all the sparkle!!
Again, I used Glossy Accents to make her 'shades' shiny!  I love the look of her!!
Thanks for stopping by!!  I appreciate it so much!

Fun in the Sun!!

Hello! Dave and I have been back from the beach for a week now and back into the normal summer routine, if there is such a thing! We love the beaches of Maine-not what most people think of  when they think of Maine, but 7 mile beach at Old Orchard Beach is really beautiful! I actually made this card for my good friend and stamping buddy, Lisa (Kind Creations) to wish her a happy, happy summer.

I used the Pure Innocence set and die Fun In the Sun for my images and colored them with copic markers. Her suit and beachball were made polka-dotted by removing color with the colorless blender. Sparkle was added with Stickles-probably in Stardust.

The background was made with Ken Oliver's Colorburst powders in Turquooise (Caribbean Colors) and Sepia.  I wet the watercolor paper and tapped just a small amount from the color burst container. After I watched the magic happen for a bit, I used my wet paintbrush to help things along. Finally, using a wet paintbrush again, I tapped more clean water from by brush onto the background. When I had the look I wanted I dried the bg with my heat gun. I then used the Papertrey Ink Cover Plate to cut the bg into the wavy pieces you can see in picture. I glued it all down onto a base card of Coastal Cabana.  The terrific sunglasses die comes with the PI set and I cut those in black cardstock.  I covered the lenses with Glossy Accents for shininess.

So, there you have it. She is enjoyed some beach time in the good 'ole summertime!!\
Hope you are too!!
thanks for visiting!! Cheryl

MFT Color Challenge

Hello! l finally have a card to share! With the heat we'ved had I've been staying inside and it's given me a chance to create a litle bit! I've used MFT's recent color challenge for this one (and their stamps and dies too!)

 I used Grout Gray card stock as my base card. It looks more brown because my ink is crumb cake.  The background stamp is BURLAP in crumb cake.  Then I cute the frame from Die-namics BLUEPRINTS 29 in white. It was cut again to get the fill in pieces from the TRANQUIL TEXTURES Paper Pack. The WILD GREENERY die-namics were cut from  Sour Apple card stock.
Finally the LARGE DESERT BOUQUET  flowers were cut from white and stamped in the challenge colors (with a touch of darker teal added in the center of the blu raspberry).
Then I added some Stardust Stickles to the flower centers, which showed up really sparkly in this photo. I added a 3-layer black die-namic 'hi' from the Hi-Hello there die-namic set and covereed them with Glossy accents for some shine.
Thanks for visiting! 
Have a great summer weekend!
