Let’s Celebrate You! {WSC386}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and I totally LOVE this week’s sketch!

Print

I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and I placed the Abstract Stencil on top. I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. I then cut the panel using the Circle STAX 2 Die-namics.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I popped the stenciled circle on top using Foam Tape. I cut “celebrate” three times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Celebrate Die-namics, and then added that to the circle panel. I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped “LET’S CELEBRATE YOU” from More Essential Sentiments using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment using WOW White Embossing Powder, and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

You Are My Sunshine! {CTD494}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Amy Rohl  has challenged us to use Red, White & Blue! LOVE!

Print

This card was SO fun to create! I began by cutting out this cutie from No-Line Coloring Card using the Pure Innocence Beach Day Die-namics, and then stamped her using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Pure Innocence Beach Day. I colored her with Copic Markers, and paper pieced her bikini and sun hat using patterned paper from the Hearts & Stripes Paper Pack.

The main panel of patterned paper from the Hearts & Stripes Paper Pack was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, as was the center panel. I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock using the Snow Drifts Die-namics, and then cut it again using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I popped her up with Foam Tape, and the sentiment panel was cut from Red Hot Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “You Are My Sunshine” from Pure Innocence Beach Day using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment with WOW White Embossing Powder.

Painted Prints Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time! The Painted Prints Card Kit has been released, and you can grab yours, while supplies last, right HERE in the MFT Boutique! YAY!

Print

I just LOVE these gorgeous flowers, and they are so fun to stamp! I began by cutting the flower and leaves from Smooth White Card Stock using the Painted Prints Die-namics, and them using Painted Prints using Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink, Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink and Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink. The vase was cut from the Black & White Basics Paper Pack using the Flower Vase Die-namics, which is the mid-month Free with $60 Die-namics.

I cut two panels of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, once using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and once using the Bold Stripes Cover-Up Die-namics. I layered them together, popping up the striped panel using Foam Tape. I then added the vase and flowers on top, also popping them up with Foam Tape. I cut “hello” four times from Smooth White Card Stock. I layered them together and then added them to the card. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

May MFT Birthday Project!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! It’s time for the May MFT Birthday Project Challenge!

This month, we are creating projects that feature cakes, cupcakes and candles! SO fun! I went with cupcakes today…YUM!

Print

I LOVE this sweet Pure Innocence Cupcake Day! I cut her, her hat and her balloon from No-Line Coloring Card using the Pure Innocence Cupcake Day Die-namics and then stamped them all using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Pure Innocence Cupcake Day. I colored them all with Copic Markers, making sure to add chocolate icing to my cupcake, and then put them aside.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics and I sponged on Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water and put it aside to dry. I cut “celebrate” four times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Celebrate DIe-namics. I layered them together and then attached the die-cut to my card. I then added my little girl, along with her hat and balloon, popping them up with Foam Tape. A trio of sequins completes the card.
