This card is using MFTSC266 sketch and part of the AI Challenge - Friendship.
I tend to favor silver and white gold hues over yellow gold, but like how this gold embossing turned out against the subtle pink background. I used the Large Dot Stencil and dabbed Versamark pad over to get the outline for embossing.

Accessories: Gold embossing powder

I'm playing along with Mojo Monday this week using MOJO433 sketch. I made these little flower branches probably a year ago and they've been sitting in my "find ways to use this later" stash until now. They're very easy to make - just cut a piece of wire to desired length, cover in tacky glue, roll in Flower Soft and let dry.
Stamps: Paper Smooches Crystal Clear + die, Mother's Day sentiment from PTI Delightful Dahlia
Love how easy the AI Spinner stamps make creating perfect font and back cards. I colored the Fairy Spinner image with Copics and used paper piercing technique for her dress for the AI Challenge. A shimmering cord is affixed to the top and bottom of the card and allows the image to spin around.
Stamps: Art Impressions Fairy Spinner + Die
Tools: MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX, Darice Chevron embossing folder
This weekend was unseasonably warm here - sunny with temperature in the mid 80's. It was the perfect weather to be outside and I enjoyed every bit of it, but for some reason when I sat down to make a card for the MFT Sketch Challenge #265, the first stamp I reached for was the Frosty & Fabulous. Maybe it's just to remind myself that it's still winter.
Stamps: MFT Frosty Fabulous
Tools: MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX Die, Mama Elephant Femme Frames, MFT Stitched Rectangle, Wink of Stella clear pen.
I made another quick card this weekend. The color combo is from the MFT Color Challenge 37. I struggled a bit with this one, but the Pure Innocence Start Every Day with Whee stamp always lightens up a card.
It's a quick card colored with Copics and background is embossed in chunky clear powder.
I was able to make a couple of cards for challenges this weekend. The first card combines MFT Sketch 264, adorable color combo from Color Throwdown 376 and the dog from one of my favorite MFT stamps, You Make My Tail Wag, for the Simon Says Create with Critters Challenge. The inside of the card is stamped with sentiment "In dog years you're still a pup!" from Inky Antics.
Since I love animal stamps, I couldn't resist making another critter card for the Simon Says Create with Critters Challenge. This one is a simple hamster shaker card using the Lawn Fawn Wheelie Like You set.
Stamps: MFT You Make My Tail Wag , Lawn Fawn Wheelie Like You, PTI Wreath for All Seasons (birthday sentiment)
I recently bough a jar of Mini Prills because they reminded me of cupcake pearls, but haven't used them on a project until now. I've made cards with micorbeads before and prills are sort of similar. They're a little bigger and I think made of styrofoam.
The first card was for Simon Says Stamp Best Friends Challenge using Mojo430 sketch. I made a card with the cute Boston Terrier - Stylish Simon stamp and added a heart embellishment covered in Mini Prills. To do this, I liberally covered a die cut in Aleene's Tacky Glue, covered in prills, hand pressed and then let it dry under the weight of acrylic block to keep the cardstock from warping under the wet glue. It turned out pretty well without empty spots on the paper.
For the second card I put drops of Crystal Effects on a cupcake and used prills as sprinkles. Because they're so small, they clumped up a bit instead of looking like individual sprinkles. They seem to be holding pretty well when I'm just holding the card, but I think these are more likely to fall off in the mail. Supplies:
Stamps: Simon Says Stylish Simon, PTI Cupcake Collection
I've used this stamp a lot since I cycle and have a lot of friends who do too. Our bikes are sans the flower basket, but close enough. The sentiment is a quote by Albert Einstein: "Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving."
