Life Is Short. Lick The Bowl! {WSC316}

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

I have a card to share with you today that I created for the current MFT Sketch Challenge, WSC316!  Such a great sketch!

I love the new Kitschy Kitchen, Kitschy Kitchen Die-namics, and You Bake Me Happy set, and I’ve used all three, along with Beautiful Blooms and Beautiful Blooms Die-namics, for my card!  I cut the bowl, spoon and lemon from Smooth White Card Stock and stamped them using Kitschy Kitchen with Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Pineapple Premium Dye Ink and Latte Premium Dye Ink.  The flower was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using Beautiful Blooms Die-namics, and I stamped it with Beautiful Blooms using Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink and Tropical Teal Premium Dye Ink.

I arranged all of my stamped elements onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics using Foam Tape, and I added it two leaves cu from Limelight Prestige Card Stock using the Leafy Greenery Die-namics.  I added a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics.  I stamped “LIFE IS SHORT. LICK THE BOWL” from You Bake Me Happy using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

The main panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock was cut using Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics.  I embossed the Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock panel using the Polka Dot Stencil and Embossing Pad Duo.  I added a strip of patterned paper cut from the Hearts & Stripes Paper Pack.  I finished off my card with a trio of enamel dots.

You Warm My Heart! {CTD426}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  This week, Lisa has challenged us to use Gray, Red and Kraft.  I LOVE this color combo!!

Print

To start, I cut my coffee cup using the Coffee Cup Die-namics from Smooth White Card Stock and Kraft Card Stock. The heart was cut from Cherry Crisp Prestige Card Stock using Blueprints 15 Die-namics.  I then added a button with a sweet little bow of Hemp Cord.  I then popped up the cup onto a panel of Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

I layered my focal panel onto a panel of Cherry Crisp Prestige Card Stock, cut with the Stitched Rectangle STAX Dienamics.  I stamped the panel using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink using the Funky Flowers set.  LOVE.  I layered this panel with a piece of patterned paper fro the Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack.  I then layered the entire panel onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and matted with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  The sentiment strip was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics, and I stamped “YOU WARM MY HEART” from Perk Up using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

January MFT Release Replay!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the January MFT Release Replay!  Have you ordered any goodies from the INCREDIBLE January MFT Release? You can find all of the new products right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the SUPER cool new Chevron Segments Cover-Up and, you guessed it, the Well-Connected Alphabet. I seriously CANNOT put this set away!  I just ADORE it! 

Print

I started by creating my background, and I used the new Chevron Segments Cover-Up to cut Smooth White Card Stock, Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock, Insulation Pink Prestige Card Stock, Pink Lemonade Card Stock and Silver Sparkle Card Stock. I added a mat the Smooth White Card Stock frame with Smooth White Card Stock cut using Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I then inset the other card stock panels to create my pattern.  I super LOVE these colors together!

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Circle STAX 2 Die-namics and stamped “heart” with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink using the Well-Connected Alphabet.  LOVE. I cut two panels of Smooth White Card Stock with the Label Tape Die-namics and stamped “FOLLOW” and “YOUR” from Label Maker Love using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I finished off my card with a trio of 6 mm Silver Heart Confetti.
