This is a long post. There are nine cards in all. These are all for the Love Fest challenge at Splitcoast stampers. I was on a card making frenzy and so enjoyed it.

This is for Puppy Love– card with a warm critter


I sponged watercolor paper with distress inks and then stamped with Versafine Ink, I used a ribbon and twine for the thread of affection. The main panel was cut with MFT postage die. I added brad and a wooden button for the final touch.

I am also adding it in Really Reasonable Ribbon- Show me the green

The inside is simple


This is for Lovey Dovey Spring- by Stamping Bella


The main panel is another diecut from MFT. The image is from Fred She Said- Doodled Floral Image. I love their images. I colored it with copics and paper pieced and colored the yellow flower and the leaves. I added white gel pen for effect. I love the sequins paper peeking through the lace. The saying is from MFT Fabulous sayings.

I am adding this to Great Impressions- Spring Celebrations and Simply Create Too- Shop in your stash– all the items used are from my stash.

The inside


This is for Doodle Do- Taylored Expressions


This card was heavily influenced by Jennifer McGuire. I love her videos and ideas. I added a doodled border and colored it with copics. I love the feathers and sentiment from MFT. I added some buttons for texture. When I embossed my feathers a spot did not have embossed powder on it, I took a brush and added embossing ink and then added the powder to even it out.

I am adding it to Challenge 4 everybody- Anything goes– this is a 5.5×5.5 card.

The inside


This is for the Inspiration Challenge- By Cat’s Pajamas, love the birdhouse and the iron gates.

P1040533I used lots of MFT diecuts. papers are from different paper pads and scrap. the corners looked like the gates, I added pearls to the branch and house.

I am adding this to Simon Says Stamp- Anything goes with pearls

This is for the Color Challenge-Sweet n’Sassy. Colors were white, red, pink and brown with additional ingredient of Love.

P1040547I had this lovely out of print paper that had browns and pinks and I thought it was perfect. I added MFT die and stamp. Love this saying with this heart. Added some sequins to balance the card.

This is for Let’s Score- Scor Pal

P1040542It is very hard to capture the score lines on a picture, they are above and below the sentiment. This is by far my favorite embossing folder. Then I added the MFT -Fabulous sayings(this is an awesome stamp set) so many ways to dress up a statement. Love it. I added a Pretty Posey die colored with alcohol inks on glossy accent paper. I added a pearl and a couple rose leaves.

I am adding this to Jo’s Scrap Shack- Florals

Here is the inside

P1040544Scor lines are added above and below the yellow paper. and a little flower.

This is for Die Cut Crazy- Simon Says Stamp. I was amazed how fast this was done once I thought of what to do. I

P1040557I diecut some LJD butterflies and Fancy butterfly by MPD- both from MFT. Is tamped the big dots on the butterfly underneath the fancy butterfly. is tamped corresponding inks on the other butterflies, all with MFT inks. I added colored pearls, colored the red ones with R28 and was done.

I am adding this to Fashionable Stamping Challenge- Anything goes

I choose Classy and Elegant for the challenge by Paper Smooches.

P1040546I stenciled a rose using MFT stencil and MFT inks-Olive, Jelly bean green. RazzleBerry and Lemon drop ink, Then I added a ribbon. This ribbon was given to me by my secret admirer(sshhh, don’t tell anyone it is my 8 year old daughter). She finds little things to give me wraps it up and writes- for Mommy from your secret admirer. It is adorable. I added a little MFT sentiment.

I am adding it to CAS on Sunday- color me Pretty; and Addicted to Stamps and More- CAS

I forgot to do an inside, will work on it.

Here is my last card for the day

Lots of layers- Paper Perfect Crafting

P1040550I distressed all the layers to add a layered look and make it more distinct. The main panel I die cut and colored the die cuts with distress markers and water. The background is peacock feathers and tumbled glass. The sentiment is from Verve.

I am adding this to Crafting from the heart- use die cuts.
