BB Sunflower Sweetheart by My Favorite Things

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m not quite sure what to say about today’s card. It just sort of evolved! Stenciling, ink blending, Copic coloring – it’s all there paired with a sweet stamp from My Favorite Things. As many of you know, I love the Birdie Brown stamps from My Favorite things and was sad to hear that she is retiring. This stamp – Sunflower Sweetheart – is one of my favorites so I decided to pull it out and get to work!

Today’s project features:

Rowhouse Greetings | BB Sunshine Sweetness by My Favorite Things (MFT Stamps)

I cut a piece of white cardstock using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX die by My Favorite Things. For the bottom edge of the card, I used the Grassy Edges Stencil blended with Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. Next, I placed the Radiating Rays Stencil in the upper left corner, blending with Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. Then I filled in the middle using the Cloud Stencil with Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China.

For the images, I stamped the images on Hammermill cardstock with Nuvo Hybrid Ink in Shadow Black. I colored the images with Copic markers (see list below) and used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.

For the sentiment, I used the Sweet Hello Die-Namics from MFT Stamps to cut the hello sentiment twice from Neenah 110# cardstock. I colored one of the die cuts with Copic markers (BG01, BG02, BG07) to create a gradient. I glued the two die cuts together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Folk Garden by Pinkfresh Studio (and a road trip!)

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Today, I have a new project featuring the Folk Garden stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio, but this card comes with a back story. A couple of weekends ago, we woke up early and decided that a road trip would be the perfect way to spend the day since things are starting to open up again. Last year, I was in contact with Anna, the owner of The Ink Pad located in the Chelsea section of New York City. She loved the Mary Engelbreit box that I had created and asked about using the photos to promote the stamps in her store. Of course, I said yes! I looked up the store and thought it would be a fun trip, but we were in the midst of the pandemic so traveling to New York was out of the question.

Scott remembered that we had discussed visiting a stamp store in New York. After consulting Google, we realized that the trip was roughly the same distance as going to the beach so we knew we were within day trip parameters. So we jumped into the car, stopped at Starbucks for fortification, and off we went!

They must have wondered what blew in the door! My husband started taking pictures immediately and I just wandered around in awe. The store is small, but it’s a crafter’s paradise. Anna is my new BFF and the rest of her staff are a delight! She was surprised, but happy that some random couple jumped into the car and drove three hours just to see (and shop!) at her store.

The walls are packed with a wide variety of wood mounted rubber stamps. Now, I love wood mounted stamps, but as you all know, I live in a shoebox with limited storage so I shifted my attention to their inventory of clear stamps. I’m seriously crushing on Pinkfresh Studio right now and Anna had several of the stamps I’ve been looking for. So you know those stamps were immediately snatched up!

Our trip was impulsive, but well worth the time. We’ll definitely be back to visit Anna and her crew!

So today’ project features some of the goodies that I bought at The Ink Pad:

  • Folk Garden by Pinkfresh Studio
  • Just Because by Pinkfresh Studio (sentiment)
  • Copic coloring (see marker list below)
  • Additional basic supplies linked in thumbnails below.
  • Supplies linked with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I’m back to playing with my Copics. Actually, I was afraid that if I waited too long, I’d fall out of practice. I’ll admit that it took a few tries to get back in the groove with my markers. That green is a new to me combination (YG01, YG05, YG09) and I love the freshness of the combination. I think that one will stay in my marker combination rotation.

That’s all for me today! I’m off to lunch with my parents! See you again soon!
