One last entry

I love clean and simple cards. An all white texture added with a pop of color makes me just happy. The inside of this card says ..This is you clinging to your youth.

This is the third and final category for the MFT Superstar 2023

Box Card Cactus

I wanted to make a card for my daughter that moved out of state. In AZ one thing people seem to miss is the Cactus and the sunsets. So I added both to a little card for her. I am working on the let’s get tutorial with this adorable set from My Favorite Things (JB-006 Stick Together Stamp & Die set). And the Out of the Box Level Up Card Kit (MFT-1874), Out of the Box City Scape (MFT-2370), and Out of the Box Snow Drifts (MFT-1833).

I will be also entering it into the MFT Superstar Contest. Why not. I did a fun technique coloring the cacti. I’ll add it to this post once I have the tutorial up!

Let me know if you’d like a PDF of this. Also tell me what you’d be willing to pay for some PDF instructions to make cards. I’m thinking $3-$5 for the PDF. After seeing the Make and Takes at Expo I felt that would be fair. How about a class kit with all the items cut and stamped. I don’t want to wholesale the products but is be willing to kit a class with the paper products and the PDF class instructions. $15-$35 depending on the amount of items in a kit? Share in the comments.

Thanks for crafting with me!

Here we go again

Another year another entry …Not sure what they are looking for but here’s what I colored!

Made with JB-008 My Favorite Things, Copic Markers & Prisma color pencils

For me it’s the details. I love adding texture to the sweaters and leaves. Pulling colors to create the illusion.

Hope it’s my year, but if not, that’s okay I won when I made this fun card

Hero Arts does it again

There is no doubt that in the heat I am making more cards! The last release of Hero Arts monthly kit brought an adorable template (watermelon layering stencil SA250). Currently working on the detail Project Sheet for this fun card. Check out the video above for a sneak peak!
