You Are Too Kind! {CC68}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

I have a card to share with you today for the new MFT Color Challenge, CC68! I LOVE this color combination!!

Print

I started with the background,which is a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I used the Scattered Bars Stencil and then sponged on Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink, Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. I LOVE how these inks blend SO beautifully!

I added a circle of Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then added “Kind” cut from Blue Yonder Prestige Card Stock from Kind & Kindness Die-namics, coated with Glossy Accents.  I cut a strip of Orange Fizz Card Stock and stamped “YOU ARE TOO KIND. THANK YOU” from Kind Words stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished off my card with a trio of enamel dots.

Hoot, Hoot, Hooray! {WSC330}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

I have a card to share with you today using the new MFT Sketch Challenge, WSC330! I had a blast with this sketch, and used the new Tweet Wishes and Tweet Wishes Die-namics!

Print

I love this little owl!  I cut him, and the tree, from X-Press It Blending Card using the Tweet WIshes Die-namics and stamped them using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink using Tweet Wishes.  I colored them both with Copic Markers and then popped them up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

I used Blueprints 13 Die-namics to cut Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock and a piece of patterned paper from the Lucky Prints Paper Pack. I added a panel of Natural Card Stock to separate them, cut with the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics.  I added two clouds, cut from Smooth White Card Stock, using the Cloud 9 Die-namics.  I cut a strip of Smooth White Card Stock and stamped “HOOT, HOOT, HOORAY” using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

Thinking Of You! {CTD440}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Wanda has challenged us to use magenta, yellow and spring green!  What a lovely combination!

Print

I used the gorgeous Bold Blooms set for my card today, and cut the flowers and leaves from Smooth White Card Stock using the Bold Blooms Die-namics.  I stamped the flowers and leaves using Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink, Banana Split Premium Dye Ink, Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink and Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I cut the sentiment panels from Smooth White Card Stock using the Label Tape Die-namics and then stamped them using Label Maker Sentiments using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using Blueprints 1 DIe-namics and then cut again using the Peek-A-Boo Polka Dots Cover-Up Die-namics.  I layered it on top of another panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I then layered the flowers, leaves and sentiment panels on top using Foam Tape.

Creative Construction With Blueprints!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the April Creative Construction With Blueprints feature!  This month, the MFT Design Team is working with just ONE set of Blueprints Die-namics, and a provided sketch, and creating a card!  I’ve used on my all time favorite Blueprints Die-namics sets and sketches, Blueprints 12 Die-namics!

Print

I seriously ADORE Blueprints 12 Die-namics, and this sketch in particular.  It is a go-to for me, for sure, when I need a quick card! For my card today, I started with a panel of patterned paper from the Black & White Basics Paper Pack, and cut panels of Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock for the top and bottom.

The circle panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock, and I stamped “I Can’t Thank You Enough” from Thanks So Very Much using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. The flower was cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock and Smooth White Card Stock, and the leaves were cut from Sour Apple Card Stock.  The flags behind the circle element were cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and Sour Apple Card Stock.  I finished off the card with a trio of white enamel dots.
