Getting Sketchy, Week 10

Hello.  :)  It’s time for Wednesday Stamp Club with My Favorite Things.  As I did a couple weeks ago, I made two cards.  The first one I didn’t (don’t) really like, but I’ll show it to you anyway…after the one I (kind of) do like.  

It’s been a bad week for mojo. 


For my first card, I turned the rectangular box on the sketch into a birdhouse and the vertical strip into a tree.


I used MFT’s Upsy Daisy Flower Builder Die-namics to create the daisies and the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics to create the little heart “sign.”

The “Tweet” on the heart sign and the inside sentiment are from You’re So Tweet and the tiny bird is from Out On a Limb (both Pure Innocence sets).

Hey Sweet Stuff

(I made the picture smaller because I don’t like the card. I thought about “thumbnail sizing it” but I didn’t want to be TOO negative.  However, if you click on the scary picture, you can see it larger and more clearly.)

I used the super-fun new Sassy & Sweet set.  I felt like the sentiment panel was too much empty white(ish) color so I stamped a few flourishes around the edges.  Then I decided that still wasn’t enough so I added the rhinestone flourish.  Now, it’s too much. **shrugging**

To create the rosette, I used MFT’s 1/4″ Rosette Die-namics.  (I am seriously rosette-challenged so please don’t look to0 closely.)  I tried layering two different patterns.  I had pieces popping up and flopping around all over the place.  It just was not a good day for rosettes.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Polka Dot Greetings.  (I like the inside better than the outside. It’s not so busy.)

SO….if you’ve made it through all of THAT, here’s what you need to know about Wednesday Stamp Club.

You can find direct links to more DT samples HERE on the MFT Blog.  The info is also posted in the MFT forum on SCS.  (Look for the most recent WSC thread numbered 10).  And remember, if you upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

  2. You are WAY TOO HARD on yourself! Both cards are fantastic!

  3. wow you have been busy, love them both!

  4. I love them both!!! I think sometimes we are our own worst critics!! I want to start a blog but feel my cards aren’t blog worthy so I know where you’re coming from!! lol. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I truly love both of them! I love the color and design on the “house.”

  8. cute stuff! and LOVE your layerd rosette….brilliant, gotta try that!

  9. Gasp!! They are both awesome!! The bird house is absolutely brilliant and the other is so sweet!!

  10. Love the bird house, very unexpected!!!! Great job!

  11. Michele, these are both wonderful!!! Not sure what you don’t like about the second card, it’s gorgeous…but kudos to you for showing it to us eventhough you’re not a fan. The first card is totally adorable…how much sweeter could a bird house be!?!

  12. oh. my. word. that ‘tweet’ little house! so stinkin’ cute!

  13. LOL I love them both Michele! The little bird house is fabulous and I love the colors on the “ugly” card! Oh how I wish my cards were that ugly!

  14. LOVE the birdhouse and Oh my, what a Saaa-weeeet “Sweet Stuff” card — the colors are so pretty & fun!

  15. I think you are under-selling yourself on both these cards Michele – they’re fabulous! Cute birdhouses are always a winner in my book, and your ‘sweet stuff’ card is really great. I love the colour palette – red and green are perfect together and the black is really making it pop. I’m glad you went ahead and shared it even though you didn’t like it 😉
    Hugs, Ruth S
