MFT Color and Sketch Challenge {warmest winter wishes}

I'm still enjoying a little "just for me" stamping. I especially like that I was able to re-connect with an old stamping buddy. I love Facebook! Eva Dobilas sent me a quick message on Saturday and we were able to chat a bit. We both use to do design work together for Unity Stamp Co and for MFT.  After a quick chat about the MFT Pure Innocence stamps, we both decided we should ink one up. Mine have gone un-loved for too long. 

What better way to use a Pure Innocence stamp than with the MFT Challenges. I combined the color and sketch challenge. While flipping through my  PI stamp sets, I actually settled on one of the sweet PI snowman, Holiday Hugs.  I colored him up with Copics and cut him out. I added some "real" snow details with some touches of glitter. 

Blueprints are a great way to make a lot of the elements of from the sketch come together quickly. I started with Blueprints 14. I love the stitching details on the large square piece and I loooove the new Blueberry color. I used the rounded panel and cut out a Wild Wisteria layer. I then ran that through my Vagabond with the Swiss Dots cover plate.  The sentiment was stamped onto a stitched banner piece from Blueprints 2 in Blueberry cs. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder to make it pop against the darker cs. I also couldn't resist my favorite snowflakes, from Let it Snow.  I topped it with a sweet buttony bow. Always the perfect embellie!

I had fun playing along with my MFT products and these challenges. Thanks for checking out what I created today. Stay warm!



  1. I love this, he's so sweet! I can't get enough blueberry.

  2. OMGosh this is so super cute, love the fabulous design.

  3. Lisa, I love your rendition of the color and sketch challenge combined! That snowman is just too cute. MFT is one of my favorite companies and I am slowing building a collection of their fabulous products.

    Hope you didn't have too much snow where you are. Only about 4 inches here in Canton, but tonight is supposed to be frigid! I am trying to be positive - February is a SHORT month and then it will be March! Spring is always welcome to arrive early. LOL

  4. I am just seeing this now Lisa! Got too busy, but making time to live up to the challenge and will be making my card, too. This turned out ADORABLE!! I loved our chat and so glad we are going to bring out our MFT fact I am about to put a little order in...LOL...see what a little chat does?

  5. Glad to see that you and Eva are enabling one another, Lisa! And what a fun snowy card. It's been unseasonably beautiful here in Utah. :) Sorry.


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
