Four Cards for Thursday



Hello and happy Thursday.  I had a bit of a play in my craft room yesterday, and my first order of business was to pull out my under used MFT Cats and Plants Kit.  Not a very catchy name, but don't let that fool you...the cats and plants in the kit are really fun.  I used some of the elements of this kit, plus the English Brick Wall stencil to create my first card, which was inspired by the sketch at MFT Sketch Challenge #548.





Next up is another take using that same kit, this one inspired by the colors at the MFT Color Challenge #168.  It's very difficult to see in this photo, but there are pink clouds outside the window, made with the MFT Cloud Mini Stencil.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #408: Birthdays.






I pulled out my old glitter tubes and mad a big mess with this next card.  I was inspired by the technique in this video of Jennifer McGuire's.  I used my Xyron machine, as I didn't have double sided adhesive sheets.  This card is way more bright and sparkly in person, so I paired it with a 'congratulation' sentiment.  I was inspired by the colors at Color Throwdown #649.







Last up is a card for The Great Cover Up, where the challenge is to create a card using only dies.  I grabbed one of my newer sentiment dies from PTI and die cut it out of patterned paper and again out of red cardstock.  I inlaid the red die into the patterned paper, and backed it all with Melon Berry, another prominent color in my patterned paper.  Although many travel restrictions have been eased, I am still sending long distance hugs to family and friends.






The challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes, so I am entering all 4 of these creations in that challenge.



Thanks for Visiting

  2. Yay, I've been waiting for more cards with this kit! I can't make up my mind if I like one better than the other, although I do like the bespeckled kitty a lot. What a fun, sparkly, graphic card! I really like your choice to fill in the sentiment "bits" with a second colour cardstock, rather than reinserting the patterned paper - a great effect. And thanks for linking up at Addicted to Stamps and More!
