Spooky and Sweet

Hi everyone!  I’m back with one more post for the day!  There’s just SO much going on!   I was invited to play along in a special hop hosted by Taylored Expressions. ( It gave me an excuse to use one of my favorite lines, The Moka Collection.)   🙂

In honor of World Card Making Day, Taylored Expressions has decided to host a month-long party filled with ultra fun challenges and prizes! You can find ALL the details in the Taylored Expressions Member Forum at Splitcoaststampers.com.  You won’t want to miss this one!

Today I decided to create with a sketch by The Baker’s Dozen’s very own sketch-anista, Jen Schults.  I *love* her sketches and this one is no exception.  (I wish I had time to play with all of them!)

I absolutely ♥ the Moka’s.   It’s been a while since I stamped Tabitha so I chose her.  (Plus I just received new October Afternoon Witch Hazel paper and I was itching to use it.)

I colored with Copics, ground/grass was sketched in using colored pencils and I added the little cross-stitches using a paper-piercer and black Copic Multiliner.

Be sure to check out all of TE’s challenge details in their SCS forum HERE!  And don’t forget to check out the rest of today’s participants where I’m certain you’ll find lots and lots of creative inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a GREAT (and super-crafty) weekend!  🙂

Hi everyone! All of us here at My Favorite Things wish you a Happy World Card Making Day! Maybe your personal style includes coloring with markers, or possibly you enjoy some fresh and clean stamping. Maybe you simply like creating custom elements with our Die-namics dies. Whatever it is that you like to do, we only hope that you get a chance to create something special today!

Don’t forget that we also offer an assortment of coordinating Replenishments including cardstock, felt, buttons and ribbon.

Sketches are always a great starting point for a little card making, and we have 92 weeks of sketches available as part of our ongoing Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge. The first year of sketches is available here: MFT Sketches 1-52 and year two (to date) is here MFT Sketches 53-92. The inspiration for my layout today started with Sketch 23.  And then I strayed. 🙂

I adore this Pure Innocence Paper Dolls image.  Maybe it’s because I liked paper dolls as a child.  Or maybe because it’s just cute.  🙂

After coloring my image with Copics, I added the white dots onto her dress with Copic Opaque White and a toothpick.  (I finally bought a fine brush so I can try something other than dots.)  The ovals were die-cut using MFT’s Oval STAX Die-namics 1 & 2.

On the inside, I stamped my sentiment and added a strip of Paper Doll Border Die-namics.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Now let’s get crafty!  🙂
