This week’s challenge to open to any type of card with the challenge of adding a charm. I make jewelry from time to time and have quite a few charms in my stash. I opted to use this adorable stamp by MFT called Spring has Sprung. I stamped it on kraft paper using Versafine Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Copics and a white gel pen. To add some drama, I tore on edge and backed it on a crimped neutral card stock. I added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn, wrapped some twine around the card front and tied on a cute little sun charm.

Our current challenge is a Colour Challenge. You are to make a card using Burgundy, Lime and Cream. I had to think about this one and and finally settled on using the adorable elves from My Favorite Things - BB Santa’s Elves. I made two cards, using all three elves from the stamp set. I started by stamping the images, colouring them using my Spectrum Noir Markers, fussy cutting them out, then layered them on my card base. I used solid burgundy and lime green card stocks, and a sentiment patterned cream and gold card stock. I used a retired sentiment from JustRite Stamps in Card 1, and a sentiment from the same MFT stamp set for Card 2. For the final touches I added some gold stickles, burgundy coloured pearls, and some gold sequins.
After the strange winter we just had, I am looking forward to Spring, tulips and Easter, For today’s card I went for simplicity. I die cut 3 bunnies using a Memory Box die and three coloured papers. I also cut out two strips of grass using dies from MFT. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. I assembled the card, and for the final touch I added pom pom tails.

For our technique challenge, we are asking you to create a card with a sunburst/starburst detail. I create the sunburst design with a sun die by MFT called Die-namics Sun Ray and paper pieced two yellow card stock. The manger image is a rubber stamp from Hambo called, “Manger”. I coloured the image with Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils. The sentiment is by Sweet n Sassy, “Jesus is the Reason Christmas Sentiments Digital Stamp Set”.
This week’s challenge is to design a card based on our inspirational photo.
I used Impression Obsession - Bird Collage 4 and My Favorite Things (MFT) – Sheet Music Background stamp. I started by stamping the bird collage stamp with Versamark Onyx Black. I also stamped it on a piece of blank paper that I cut out and used as a mask, Once masked, I sponged the background with Distress Ink -Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, and Walnut Stain. With mask still in place, I stamped the card stock with the MFT background stamp (walnut stain). Next I removed the masked and coloured the flowers and leaves with Distress Markers. I made two different stamps, one utilizing the Sheet Music Background stamp, and one with double oval die cuts. I added pearls for that little extra to one card.
