2023 Card Design Superstar: Clean & Simple Genius

 Hi everyone!  This is my final entry for the MFT 2023 Card Design Superstar, Clean and simple genius.  I used the Lucky Duck stamp set.  I stamped the images onto Kraft card stock and colored them with OLO markers and color pencils.  For the shower curtain I used the pink tissue paper from the packaging our stamps come in.  I cut a rectangle of the tissue paper and folded it into pleats and punched a hole in the folded pleats.  I used fine twine to hang the shower curtain, for the finishing touch.  I punched two small holes one on each side of the image panel.  I used the Inside and Out Stitched Rectangle Stax  Die-namics for the card panels.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs and smiles,

2023 Card Design Superstar My Favorite Things

 Hello everyone!  Here is my Box Card Master submission for the MFT Card Design Superstar.  I used lots of stamps and dies to create this Halloween Box.  It was lots of fun!


As you can see, lots of different sets were used.  I used black cardstock for the base of the box and the layers were cut with the Watercolor Rectangle STAX .  I like the spooky feel they give to the box compared to using the straight layers.  I also cut some from white cardstock to layer onto the dividers inside the box.  I cut those into about 1 inch strips making sure the jagged edge was at the top.  I colored the strips with grass and the path leading to the haunted house.  I added some cracks to the pathway to spook it up a bit.  The back panel was cut from white cardstock and colored with OLO markers and Faber Castell color pencils.  One of the stamp sets I used was JB Delightful Halloween.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

My Yearly Post 2023 Card Design Superstar Contest

 Here is a card I am submitting to the MFT Superstar Coloring Virtuoso category.  I used several stamp sets to create my scene. 


YUZU Presents and Pupcakes for the dog images.

YUZU Catitude 

Sentiments from retired Pure Innocence stamp sets.

On A Roll Die-namics 

These were some sentiments I thought could be used like Let the Good Times Roll or No Pee-ing Allowed.  (omitted the k in peeking)  I used Just Roll With It.  I cut one of the pieces of toilet paper into 3, crumpled them and placed them on the card.  The dog with the ribbon in his mouth was changed by masking the puppy and inking up the trailing toilet paper roll on the kitten's tail and placing it on the floor at the puppy's bottom.  I used OLO markers and colored pencils to complete the images and drew the hardwood floor and rug.  I had lots of fun creating this scene.  Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by.
