The Stamping Boutique Recipe card: Use a square, a circle and 2 patterned papers challenge

Hello there it's that time again on a friday where I share with you a challenge for the Stamping Boutique Design team.   This week's theme is to make a card or project using the ingredients of a square, a circle and 2 patterned papers.  This week I switched things up and actually made a project life page to showcase these ingredients.

I'm new to project life but so far I'm loving it. I'm not doing it the traditional weekly/daily way but more so as a small event scrapbook.  Maybe in the future I'll do it more weekly but I like how I'm using it now.  So for this layout I did a page about cake pops since I like to make them and I'd taken a few pictures that I didn't just want to sit on my phone or computer.


The  Stamping Boutique Digital image I used was Recipe card with Space on Left. The project life cards/patterned paper featured in this layout is from the Dear Lizzy Editon by Beck Higgins.
Then the cake pop patterned paper is a free printable from Family Fresh Cooking check out the link here .  I also featured a sequins shaker pocket for the first time in my project life and I love it.  I used Project life Design A pages. So for the corner with the card and sequins shaker I sewed it so I could put an extra small card in there and the sequins shaker. The words cake pop on the top were cut out with my big shot machine using the sizzix Sizzlits Alpha Bubbles set. 

Make sure you hop on over to The Stamping Boutique challenge blog. There you will find inspiration and more cards or projects from the rest of the lovely design team.  You can also link up your very own creations for a chance to win. You will find all the details over at the blog which you can find here.

Simon Says "Let's Be Clear"

I've got one more card to share with you tonight.  Next week's Wednesday Simon Say Stamp Challenge is Let's Be Clear. So you're suppose to use any clear element on your card so acetate, vellum, glossy accents, translucent embossing paste, clear plastic, etc. 

As you can see I used velum. I experimented with this card, I've never tried a technique like this before. It's a flat card it doesn't stand up on it's own.  I used MFT's Graduation Die-namics and used a small amount of glue tape on the velum and folded it over the edge to create the fold so it's still like a card, where you can write your message. I did the same with the bottom peice. And to finish it off I added some half pearls.


I'm really happy with how this card turned out. I also love when the ideas in your head actually work out and become a reality. Wahoo for experiments that work!!!


MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #184

Hey there, I've got a new card to share with you.  I created it for this week's MFT "My Favourite things" Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge.  This week it's sketch # 184

Here is the sketch:
 My card:

I switched up the angles a bit from the sketch but I like how it turned out and it's still pretty close to the original sketch.  I used the Sizzix Letter Envelope embossing folder from the Mail set.  I really love this set of embossing folders and it works perfectly here.  The image is MFT's own Pure Innocence "Happy Mail" stamp.
