How are you doing? Happy to bring a little something to share with you today. A little card something that is. 🙂
This card is the result of the latest Creative Construction with Blueprints challenge with the My Favorite Things Design Team.
We were challenges to pick a set of Blueprints Die-namics and coordinating sketches and put them to work.
As sweet Julie said, “Cards in a flash are the specialty of the Blueprints line and this month, we can all probably use a leg up in that regard! Our challenge this month is simple: create cards based on Blueprints sketches. Any Blueprints, any sketch. Simple choose the paper and let Blueprints do the rest of the work!”
So let me show what I’ve got.
Cha-cha! 😉 So the base of this card was created with the Blueprints 21 Die-namics. For good measure, I threw in a few stars cut with the Stitched Star STAX Die-namics and the Happy word cut with the Brushstroke Birthday Greetings Die-namics.
I die-cut the rectangle and then I cut the circles right into it. One of the cool things about Blueprints 21 is there is a die with those circles in that wavy, circle arch. Love that. I don’t think I would have enough patience to line the circles up perfectly like that. Thank you, MFT, for making it easy!
For a complete list of supplies I used to make this card, be sure to check out the list below.
And totally swing by the MFT Stamps blog to see who else took on this challenge. I am always in amazement of what the gang cooks up.
Got a little a card to share with you today.
I was feeling the need to get inky so I made this guy!
I created that rainbow background with the Crosshatch stencil. I just plopped the stencil down (so to speak) onto cardstock and then started sponging on the ink. First red, then orange, then yellow and then green. You get the picture.
A funny little story about that circle. I originally planned not to have it there. I stamped the phrase and (… sigh with me, peeps… ) rocked the stamp and dropped it. Yes, yes. You feel my pain? It was a stampy mess. Thus, I went in for the save. I cut the circle, stamped a new phase and adhered it to the card …. tightly! 😉
Short and sweet today. Be back again later, gators.

Just something fun today! I’ve got a little giveaway, courtesy of Technique Tuesday.
What’s up for grabs? Well, it’s this.
This is the Planner – Thanks stamp set.
This stamp set is one that features some doodles,
chicken scratch words and stuff by me. It was designed to work most of the planners out there so you can document what you are thankful for. But is also a darn good one to use on scrapbook pages and to make cards with. (Did you see what Tonya Dirk did with it to make a card? So cool! And check out how Candi Billman used it her planner! Not going to lie. I was like, “OH MY GOSH! I can’t believe you used it! DUDE!” My friend, Julie, used it in her planner too.)
So if you’d like a chance at winning this stamp set, just leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on 11/28/15. I’ll announce a winner on 11/30/15.
Once again, big thanks to TT for providing the stamp set for this giveaway.
Got a couple simple stamped projects to share with you today. Both were made in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
Meet Fancy Made Thing #1.
And meet Fancy Made Thing #2.
I had made a bunch of leaves awhile back with Autumn Acorns stamp set and coordinating Autumn Acorns dies from Ellen Hutson. I used them on a couple projects and still had a few leftover that I didn’t just want to trash. So yeah. I whipped these guys together.
Thought the tag would make a nice addition to a bottle of wine to take to a friend. And the card would be enjoyed by another friend on Thanksgiving Day.
Be back again later, gators.
Just stopping by quick today.
I’m up on the Simple Stories blog, sharing a peek inside my Carpe Diem Planner.
Here’s a little peek for you.
You can see more from my planner over there. I’d be tickled if you’d check it out.
See you again soon!
Just here with a quick card to share with you today.
I created it with some of the products that My Favorite Things is retiring. All the retiring stamps and dies (and some other cool retiring products) are 50% off right now. They are going incredibly fast.
I cut the white base panel with the retiring Office Supplies Die-namics. And then I cut the world and words into it. I just used scraps of cardstock behind the openings. If you could flip that panel over, you’d see it’s kind of a hot mess of cardstock scraps. 😉
I stamped the paper background with the Writing Tablet Background stamp, which is also retiring. I’m sure going to miss it. Always love the look of notebook paper.
Alright, that’s what I have for you.

It’s Creative Challenge time again with the My Favorite Things Design Team.
Our challenge this time? To think out of the box and apply non-traditional colors to our Christmas crafting projects.
So I went bold and I made this card.
Ta-da! Ok. It’s a lot bold. 😉
An orange, pinks and black all together with a bit of white.
I created the background striped piece with the Stripes Cover-Up. I cut the panel three times and then layered the panels on together, letting the bottom two layers peek out just a bit.
To make the “joy” word stand out, I die-cut three times and then stacked up the dies. I felt like it just needed that extra bit of pop against the bright bold colors.
To see more takes on this challenge, stop by the MFT Stamps blog. Lots of links to be found.

How goes it? Got a little something to share today.
I was inspired to play by the Holiday Tag challenge over on the AEI♥U Challenge blog. So play I did. 😉 And so I came up with this little number.
It is somewhat the product of a late night crafting session the other day with Avery Elle’s Penguin Greetings stamp set. It’s just so darn cute! I made several tags but this one is a little different.
After doing the stamping and coloring, I used my hole punch to pop some holes in the tag. Then I adhered it onto vellum and poked another hole and tied some twine through the whole thing.
If you flipped the tag over, you’d see I used Copic marker to add a little yellow coloring where the holes fall. It’s real faint, but it’s kind cool when you look at the tag up close.
By the way, I wanted the little guy’s vest to look a bit puffy so I added some Glossy Accents to the top of his vest. I wish the dimension showed a little better. You will just have to trust me that the Glossy Accents are there. Deal?
Alright, that’s what I have for you. Over and out. Thanks for swing by!
AEI♥U Challenge #30 – Holiday Tag
Having one of those just for fun days and made a little card to share with you.
I created that background pattern with the help of the Snow Drifts Cover-Up from My Favorite Things. I cut it out a couple times from a couple different colors of cardstock and then assembled it together. And then for good measure, I added one additional “frame” to it, but I just slightly off-set so the whole thing would look a little more funky. What can I say? I like funky. 🙂
Then I had my way decorating it up, adding some stars, buttons and sequins cut with dies from My Favorite Things as well. I think adding the red sequins helped to really create some movement.
Alright! That’s what I have for you. Be back again later, gators.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
