MFT Guest Designer Contest-June

This month's MFT Guest Designer Contest's theme is "Some Like It Hot" and we can take that in any direction we want to.

I created 2 cards for this contest.  The first is this one...

Since this is the type of card I'd only give to my hubby, I made it more masculine. The fireplace scene is from an older MFT Christmas set Home for the Holidays and the sentiment is from MFT Who's That Grillin' Guy?

I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the front panel and frame, and adhered it with pop dots to add dimension. The woodgrain stamp and impression plate are from PTI.

  I colored the scene with Prisma pencils and added a little twine and button to finish it off. 

Here is the second card I made for this contest.  This sassy little lady is laying down the law in her kitchen, the "hottest" room in the house. ;) 

Isn't this sentiment just great?!  How many times have I wanted to say these very words myself? ;)  The main image is from MFT Lovin' from the Oven and the sentiment is from MFT Twisted Threesome.  This sentiment set is filled with tongue-in-cheek sassy sayings like this one...just LOVE it!!

 I paper pieced the main image and adhered her to a Spellbinders die cut with pop dots.  All patterned papers are by October Afternoon. 

I added a little crocheted lace and some die cut kitchen utensils to add a couple of finishing touches. The sentiment label is adhered with antiqued brass brads.  Thought that added a little something to the vintage feel of this card. 

This was a fun contest!  Thanks for looking, and as always, your comments are very much appreciated!!
