Happy Birthday! {CTD431}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week Amy Rysavy has challenged us to use mint green, mint, plum and light brown!  Such a gorgeous color combo!

I just love the colors this week, and knew I wanted to go with flowers.  I cut flowers from Smooth White Card Stock using the Flashy Florals Die-namics and the Pretty Posies Die-namics.  I stamped the flowers using Flashy Florals and Pretty Posies using Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink, stamped off, and then stamped the centers again using Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink.  The leaves were stamped using Flashy Florals with Spearmint Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink, Field Day Premium Dye Ink and Timber Green Premium Dye Ink.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I embossed the panel using the Diagonal Stripes Stencil and Embossing Pad Duo.  I arranged the flowers and leaves onto the card front, popping them up with Foam Tape.  The sentiment panels were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Label Tape Die-namics, and I stamped “HAPPY” and “BIRTHDAY” using Label Maker Sentiments using Latte Premium Dye Ink.  I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

It’s time!  The INCREDIBLE new Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit has been released and is available now right HERE in the MFT Boutique!  This kit is simply wonderful, I know you will all adore these butterflies!

Print

I seriously ADORE these butterflies!  I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and cut it with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I then stamped the butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies using Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink, Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink and Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, and Daffodil Premium Dye Ink and Pineapple Premium Dye Ink.  I then stamped the all with the final detail image using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  LOVE them!

I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped “Have A Beautiful Day” from You Give Me Butterflies using the included Versamark Cube, and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

The GORGEOUS new Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit will be released tonight at 9PM EST right HERE in the MFT Boutique!  I have another card to share with you today using elements from this fantastic kit!

Print

I just LOVE how these butterflies came out!  I started with Smooth White Card Stock, included in the kit, and watercolored a panel using my Zig Clean Color Markers.  Once the panel was completely dry, I cut out the butterflies using the Beautiful Butterflies Die-namics.  I then stamped them with the included Versamark Cube and heat embossed them with the included Black Embossing Powder using the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I then used the Stitched Strip Die-namics to add the stitched detail to the entire card panel.  I then added the butterflies using Foam Tape.  I then cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped “I Adore You” from You Give Me Butterflies, using the Versamark Cube, and I then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished off the card with lots of sequins.

Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

Friends, it’s time.  It’s time for another AMAZING new MFT Card Kit, and this month, the Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit simply knocks it out of the park. RIGHT.OUT.OF.THE.PARK.

Print

Oh!  I LOVE this new set!  For my card, I started by stamping “You Give Me Butterflies” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink using You Give Me Butterflies, onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Radial Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.  I layered the panel onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and stamped with the Split Diagonal Background using Versamark Ink and embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.

After embossing the background, I used Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and Cranberry Cocktail Premium Dye Ink to sponge on the background color.  The butterfly was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Beautiful Butterflies Die-namics, and stamped using Beautiful Butterflies with Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Cranberry Cocktail Premium Dye Ink and Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I popped up the focal panel and the butterfly with Foam Tape, and finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
