A Birdie Brown Revisit--Witch Way is the Candy?


Birdie Brown brings back a Halloween favorite--Witch Way is the Candy?
The images have been tweaked and the set has brand new sentiments
in Birdie Brown's trademark font. 

I missed getting this set before it was retired, so I'm happy to see a revival--
just in time for Halloween! Today I'm sharing two cards with this set.


The little witch was stamped and colored with Copics, then cut with the matching
Die-namics. White dots were added to her dress with a Gelly Roll pen. Smaller 
images in the set were stamped with Grout Gray ink on a white card base.
 
I adhered the sentiment strip and the witch was popped up over it with
dimensional adhesive. Glittery gold enamel dots finished off the card.



My second card uses the smaller images in the set. The three images were stamped
and colored with Copic markers, then cut with the matching Die-namics. A top
folding, Smooth White card base was covered with patterned paper and set aside.

The Stitched Peek-a-Boo Windows and Edge were cut from white card stock
and the inside portion of the windows were ink distressed. All pieces were adhered
to the card and the critters were popped up inside each window. The card was
finished off with the white embossed sentiment and a few sequins.

Both the X's and O's Card Kit and Witch Way is the Candy? will go on sale tomorrow,
August 22nd at 9PM EST in the MFT Store!

MFT August Card Kit--X's and O's



If you liked and bought MFT's Amaze-ing Card Kit, then you'll LOVE this month's kit--
X's and O's with a super fun Tic-Tac-Toe theme! Here's a peek at the kit. 
Visit today's post at My Favorite Things for a detailed look at the kit's contents.



I made a quick, one layer card using the stamp set from the kit.



The tic-tac-toe grid was white embossed several times on watercolor card stock,
then ink distressed with pink and red Distress inks--the same colors found in the kit.
The x's, o's, and hearts were stamped randomly inside the grid, using black ink.

The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of black card stock and cut out with
a banner die. The banner was adhered to the card and finished off with enamel dots.

This fantastic kit will go on sale Tuesday, August 22nd at 9PM EST
in the MFT Store!

CAS(E) this Sketch #235


Ready for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch
Here's Sketch #235 brought to you by Chrissy.
 

Here's my take on it.


I wove pink and green striped papers and adhered them to a Latté card base.
I popped up the kitty, white embossed the sentiment, and finished off the card
with a few enamel dots.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #346


Are you ready for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge?
Here's Sketch #346.

And here's how I interpreted the sketch.


I pretty much followed the sketch, and substituted the little reader from Our Story
for the circle element. The image was grounded with the sentiment on a strip,
and the card was finished off with enamel dots.

MFT gift voucher as the random winner of the challenge.

MFT August Release Replay



It's Release Replay time over at My Favorite Things! The Creative Team has
fresh ideas and more inspiration for you using products from the last release.

I love Release Replay because it gives me a chance to use products in a different way
or even step out of my comfort zone.


 Often times, smaller stamps in a set are overlooked or overshadowed by the larger
main images. I chose the leaves and buds from In Bloom, inked them in Distress inks 
and misted the stamp with water before stamping them on watercolor card stock

Using the Big Thanks Die-namics, I cut right into the panel and used the camouflage
technique. Peeled Paint Distress ink was spattered on the panel, then cut with the
rectangle element from Blueprints 24 and adhered to a Latté card base.
Sparkling Clear sequins finished off the card.

Visit today's Release Replay post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration
from the participating Creative Team members!

CAS(E) this Sketch #234


Meet CAS(E) this Sketch #234--a little something from me.


And here's my pretty straight forward take on the sketch.


Lots of ink distressing with Distress Oxides, a couple of jellyfish and a fun
 sentiment. Sparkly sequins finished off the card. Funny how that one dot
with a white pigment pen on the jellies' eyes makes such a difference!

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the
sketch, and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, Aug 17th
and as a winner, you could be joining us on a future challenge!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #345

It's Wednesday! Time for an all new MFT Sketch Challenge. Here's Sketch #345.


And here's how I interpreted the sketch. I just love those Happy Hippos!

I stamped, colored, and cut the two hippos and balloons. The Happy Birthday
Circle Frame and banner for the sentiment was cut from Ripe Raspberry
card stock. I adhered a strip of patterned paper per the sketch, added the
circle frame, and popped up the hippos, balloons, and sentiment. The card
was finished off with sparkling clear sequins.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for all the details and deadlines and come
