My Favorite Things: Let's Celebrate You!



Happy Weekend!  I have a card that has a bunch of new goodies, I finally broke into the My Favorite Things Doodled Blooms (Sold Out) Card Kit.


Honestly, I don't think I've embossed so much on one project.  I love all the added texture...do you spy the Lined Up Dots Background?  The 'vase' is from MFT Die-namics LLD Cool Cup.

The inks are from the new Distress Oxides:  


The cup has Broken China that has been applied with a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool.  Using a soaked paintbrush, I flicked water droplets on the cup/vase.  The blooms have been heat embossed in Hero Arts White.  I smooshed the Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade on an acrylic block and used a wet paintbrush. 



 I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge:


My colors were inspired by The Card Concept:


I tried to capture the baby's breath by using the Lined Up Dots background.  Rather than use a mason jar as the vase, I used the Cup from Cool Cup.

Next week we're celebrating one of my best friends birthday's, this card was made especially for her.  I'm so grateful for her, she's been fighting cancer the last 2 years and is in hospice care.  We've been friends since the kids were almost babies.  We visit with her almost weekly and laugh....a lot...definitely a highlight of my week💚

  7. Such a lovely card, Amy! The use of the cup for a case is so clever. Like you, I've been playing with my Distress inks (after a very long stamping hiatus) and loving the effect that it adds to projects. My best wishes and prayers to your friend. Your visits bring her endless cheer, I'm sure.
