Gill Friends and Beach Buds by My Favorite Things

Good morning friends! I recently finished up another series of classes at Photo Scraps where we created three cards featuring the Gill Friends and Beach Buds stamp sets from My Favorite Things. Supplies are listed below. Lots of good fun as we explored creating a box card as well as stenciling backgrounds and ink blending with Distress Oxides.

Mark your calendars! We just set the dates for my September classes at Photo Scraps. Once again, there will be two dates available: Sunday, September 16th and Thursday, September 20th. I haven’t decided what we’ll be doing yet – maybe some Newton’s Nook or perhaps I’ll pull some House Mouse stamps out of my stash. Who knows?

Stay tuned!

Just BeClaws by My Favorite Things

Had another fun Saturday at Photo Scraps for Demo Day. I was surprised (and pleased) to see so many turn out for the day’s event, especially since the weather was so bad. But a good time was had by all and I actually ran out of card kits for the first card featured below.  The crab was a big hit. After all, this is Maryland!

You’re probably tired of hearing me say this, but these cards really are quick and easy to put together. I relied on die cuts and a stencil to create the backgrounds and added a couple of images from the Just BeClaws stamp set by My Favorite Things.

As I write this on Monday night, it’s still pouring rain – over 4 inches of rain in the past 24 hours, flash flood warnings, and more rain to come – so a couple of sunshine themed cards are hopefully predictors of sunny days ahead.

Kiss Kiss featuring Gill Friend by My Favorite Things

Recently, I spent the day designing cards for my August Copic class at Photo Scraps. I was on a roll so I made one more featuring these adorable fish from the Gill Friends stamps set by My Favorite Things. After coloring the fish with Copic markers, I made a quick background using the Full of Heart stencil (also by MFT Stamps) with Distress Inks. Add a little Glossy Accents to make the bubbles shine and a few dew drops for bling and you have a card full of summer love!
