Prickly?

Some may question why I used a needle and thread for this cue word...only if they are not quilters!
I have a permanent callous where I am constantly "pricked" by my needle as I hand quilt.


This is a white linen base card with the verse stamped using StazOn jet black ink and MFT "let's get cozy".
The thread and needle are stamped with the same ink and the TPC Studio "sewing" set.
They were colored with Faber Castell polychromos.

In honor of the eclipse...

Sketch Challenge 346 #mftstamps
and

I saw the MFT sketch and immediately thought of the eclipse and then figured out that the best way to view it, for kids, was with this card!
The base card is white card stock with a layer of grey card stock that I punched with a corner rounder.
I used a strip of white card stock to stamp the verse from MFT "let's get cozy" using StazOn jet black ink.
Over to the BigKick with gold and black card stock to make an inlaid sun with MFT Die-namics "flop card-circle" die.
I die cut one of each with that die and then a smaller circle die so it would fit.

Enjoy the eclipse tomorrow!

There's friends and then there's the friends I have...

...with my same warped sense of humor.


This fun one layer card required two sets.
The crow is stamped to the kraft card stock base card using StazOn jet black ink and the Inkadinkadoo "ghouls & goblins" set.
The verse is stamped the same way using the Darcie's Heart and Home "crow about" set.
I did the minimal coloring with Faber-Castell polychromos.

Final day of camp...

and

I didn't have a bunch of dies that I could inlay for a full background but I did find a few to use for this inlaid card.

I will not go into the details of how I made the card.
You can find that here...
...but I will list the items I used.
Die-namics :
"stitched snow drifts"
"trees in the forest"
"tree-mendous"
"merry Christmas"
Card stock:
white 
grey 
black
red
Tape
Mono adhesive
Distress marker (picket fence)

I so enjoy using the Camp Create videos to expand my creativity!

Getting sad, only one more day of camp...

and

Can't get enough of these MFT "seaside seagulls" and they fit for both challenges.
This is a one layer white card stock base card.
I die cut the waves from a second piece of cad stock and sponged the bottom of the card with Distress ink salty ocean and then spritzed it and blotted it with a paper towel.
Covering the ocean with the other piece of the mask I stamped the gulls using Adirondack pitch black ink, then stamped them again onto post-it notes and cut them out.
The post-it notes also worked for the clouds from the same set.
After placing all the masks I sponged the top of the card with Distress ink peacock feathers.
I removed all the masking, stamped the verse from the same set using StazOn jet black ink and colored the gulls with my Chameleon pens.
