Because You Make My Heart Happy! {CC66}

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!

I have a card to share with you today using the new MFT Color Challenge, CC66! It’s a GORGEOUS color combination of Safety Orange, Cranberry Cocktail,Tropical Teal and Tangy Orange!  Instead of using these exact colors, I created my card using some of the GORGEOUS new Distress Oxide Inks!

Print

I started with a panel Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I placed the Funky Florals Stencil on top of my panel, and then sponged on Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. The ways these inks blend is nothing short of AMAZING!  SO soft and smooth!

I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock using the Circle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then added a strip of Smooth White Card Stock, stamped with “you make me happy” from Because You, using Versmark Ink, and then heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I then sponged the entire panel with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink, and then buffed off where the sentiment was embossed.  I then cut “because” from Smooth White Card Stock, and sponged it with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, and then coated it with Glossy Accents.  Once it was dry, I attached it to the circle panel, and then added a thin strip of Smooth White Card Stock between “because” and the sentiment panel.  A trio of enamel dots finishes off my card.

Bestest Wishes! {CTD435}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, I am the hostess!  I have challenged everyone to use the combination of orange, turquoise and yellow! I hope you love these colors as much as I do!!

Print

So, as you can see, I am still completely and utterly obsessed with creating watercolored backgrounds!  For my card today, I started with a panel of Watercolor Paper and then pulled out some original Distress Inks in orange, yellow and turquoise hues, and created the background.  I then added specks of black and white for even more interest.

I stamped “Bestest Wishes” from Birthday Wishes & Balloons using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment using Black Embossing Powder.  I added a trio of hearts cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics. I then added the focal panel onto a panel of patterned paper cut from the Black & White Basics Paper Pack.  LOVE.

Doodled Blooms Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time!  The GLORIOUS new Doodled Blooms Card Kit is available right HERE, right NOW, in the MFT Boutique!  Hooray!  I just ADORE this new Card Kit!!

Print

I started my card by cutting a panel of X-Press It Blending Card using Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I stamped the flowers from Doodled Blooms using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored the flowers with Copic Markers, and then added colorful enamel dots around the panel.  I layered the focal panel on top of a panel of Lemon Drop Card Stock stamped with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.

The sentiment panel was cut from a panel of Blu Raspberry Card Stock, and I stamped “LET’S CELEBRATE YOU” from More Essential Sentiments using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I added a strip of Sour Apple Sparkle Card Stock underneath the sentiment panel of a bit of shimmer and shine.

I had SO much fun creating a little scene for my card today! I  started with a panel of Sno Cone Card Stock, and then added “grass” cut from Gumdrop Green Card Stock using the Grassy Edges Die-namics.  The flower stems were cut from Sour Apple Card Stock using the new Doodled Blooms Die-namics, and then stamped with Versamark Ink using Doodled Blooms and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

The flowers were cut from Red Hot Card Stock, Blu Raspberry Card Stock and Lemon Drop Card Stock using the Doodled Blooms Die-namics, and then stamped using Doodled Blooms with Versamark Ink.  I heat embossed them with White Detail Embossing Powder, and then popped them up with Foam Tape.  The sun was cut from Lemon Drop Card Stock using the Radiant Sun Die-namics, and the clouds were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Cloud 9 Die-namics.  I stamped the sentiment, “YOU MAKE ME HAPPY” from More Essential Sentiments, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.
