Creativity in Flight, MFTWSC217, Mouth in Flight Too!

by Cindy B Designs on February 25, 2015

Hi. It's me again. I made another card for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 217 (MFTWSC217). I just realized that I've been calling it "Club" rather than "Challenge," but I could have sworn it was "Club" before. Oh well. I'm absolutely crazy obsessed with Lisa Johnson's new Spring Tulips stamp set and Die-Namics. Lisa has been a friend of mine for a long time, she is just the sweetest woman, and she is an awesome illustrator and I'm so glad she is working with My Favorite Things now. She has a great clean style with clean lines and they are so easy to work with. You can either stamp them solid or stamp the outline so that you can color. I love to color so I'm always on the lookout for fun images that I can color. It's very relaxing to me and is a total stress-buster. I color as often as possible. I stamp images for fun and for no reason just to color.

I also have another video for you. I just need to edit it, so be sure to come back and check it out. I'm just doing what I have to do to keep the time reasonable. I also still need to find a good video editing software for dummies like me too that is user friendly. 

Today, my creativity is in flight and I just don't know what got a hold of me with this sketch. I haven't felt this energized about creating for years now! For this card, I still used rainbow colors. I have a thing for butterflies too.

Are you ready to see my beautiful butterflies card now? I'm sure you are, so here it is! I've also completed the inside for you too!

All products used are My Favorite Things unless otherwise specified. 

Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit me again today and God bless you.

A Splash of Color, My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Club 217

by Cindy B Designs on February 25, 2015

Hi there friends. Well, I seem to be a posting fool today, but I'm having a lot of fun doing it. When I saw the sketch for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Club 217 (MFTWSC217), I knew I had to get on it right away. The sketch oozes coolness. You might think what's the big deal about 5 banners? You can play hard, fast and loose with the interpretation and I have about 10 other stamp sets on my floor ready to be used for this and one is so genius, at least in my mind, that I wrote it out. You can do anything with this sketch and I did. 

I do have a video for you since I created a cheater's 4-bar card and I'm going to show you how to do it as well. I haven't edited the video yet since I made another card for this challenge and I have some enamel accents drying right now. I've mixed and matched stamp sets and Blueprints and have come out with some very fun cards that I think you will like, so be sure to stop back by often because like I said, I'm going to have some fun.

Here are my first two cards for you. I also completed the inside too. What a blast of color and I picked the perfect stamp to do this. This is clean, simple and incredibly graphic. 

As I was editing the video, it's less than 20 minutes. Yay! I honestly think I could have had it down to 15 minutes if I had more space on my desk. Unfortunately, the "real" video stopped a few minutes in and just froze so I used the first video where I made all of the mistakes. I used foam tape to adhere the front to the card base and the pictures above show the inside of the card.

All products used are My Favorite Things unless otherwise stated.
