January Creative Challenge – Spell It Out, X 2

Hi everyone!  It’s time for a Creative Challenge with My Favorite Things. This month we are creating custom sentiments or adding personalization to our projects using alphabet dies or stamps.  I have two cards to share.  :)

First, I created a custom sentiment to go along with Doodle Garden Sweet on You.

I used Cotton Candy ink to stamp Western Backgrounds onto Cotton Candy card stock then die-cut the letters with Highrise Lowercase Alphabet Die-namics. The small comma die is from Bottom Line Numbers and Symbols.

The image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Inside, I used Black Licorice ink to stamp a sentiment from Cheerful Blessings, added a strip of Kraft card stock and a heart die-cut from Blueprints 11.

On my second card, I used Negative Dot Alphabet to enhance the “Be Happy” die from Blueprints 11.  I used Black Licorice for the sentiment pieces with Cotton Candy and accents of Razzleberry and Pink Lemonade.

Tip:  When you need a comma or apostrophe and there isn’t one in the set, use the negative piece cut from another die, such as I used here.  My apostrophe is from the script letter e in the word “smile” from Blueprints 11.

Inside, I completed the sentiment from the front using Celebrate Big and added a second smiley face.  :)
