Snow Globe Card Kit: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

I have another card to share with you today using the magical new Snow Globe Card Kit from MFT! This fabulous kit will be released tonight at 9PM EST right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Print

For my card, I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. I used the new Snow Globe Die-namics to cut out the panel, and then added a Dome Shaker Pouch.

For the scene inside, I used the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics to cut the snowman, trees and snow drifts. I spritzed some watered down white acrylic paint on the Blueberry Prestige Card Stock “sky” for a snowy sky. I used a panel of Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock to cut his scarf. Before adding the scene and sealing the pouch, I added some Diamond Dust for a super wintry feeling. I cut the bottom of the snow globe using the Snow Globe DIe-namics from Cherry Adhesive Paper. I used the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut a panel of Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, and stamped “HAPPY HOLIDAYS” from Snow Globe Sentments using Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. A trio of enamel dots finish off the card.

Snow Globe Card Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

It’s time for a new Card Kit from MFT, and the incredible new Snow Globe Card Kit is AMAZING!!!

Print

I started with a panel of Kraft Card Stock, included in the Snow Globe Card Kit, and cut it with the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. I cut the Kraft Card Stock panel using the new Snow Globe Die-namics, and then added a Dome Shaker Pouch. I added a strip of Sweet Tooth Card Stock across the panel, and stamped “SWEET WINTER WISHES” from Snow Globe Sentiments using Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink, Blueberry Premium Dye Ink and Jellybean Green Premium Dye Ink.

I created the scene inside the “snow globe”using the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics with the card stock included in the kit. I arranged the scene and then added the included Diamond Dust (it is SO sparkly!). I then attached the scene to complete and seal the Dome Shaker Pouch. I cut the “base” of the snow globe from Cherry Wood Adhesive Backed Paper, included in the kit, using the Snow Globe Die-namics. I wrapped the panel with Hemp Cord, added a bow, and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

There Is No Such Thing As Too Many Hugs! {CC77}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It’s time for a new MFT Color Challenge, and we have a GORGEOUS combination for you this week…Stone Gray, Blueberry, Berrylicious and Bubblegum! LOVE!

Print

I LOVE the Chevron Segments Cover-Up Die-namics, and I used it to cut panels of Smooth White Card Stock (for the “frame”), Stone Gray Prestige Card Stock, Blueberry Prestige Card Stock, Berrylicious Card Stock and Bubblegum Card Stock. I then inset the color panels into the Smooth White Card Stock frame, and then added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics.

I cut a panel of Stone Gray Prestige Card Stock using Circle STAX 1 Die-namics and then added “Hugs” which I cut from Smooth White Card Stock four times using the Twice The Hugs Die-namics. I layered them together for a thicker die-cut. I stamped a panel of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock with “There Is No Such Thing As Too Many Hugs” from Lots of Hugs, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. A trio of enamel dots finished off the card.

I’m Here For You! {WSC350}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and we have a fabulous new layout for you this week!

Print

I just ADORE the new Bitty Bears set, SO MUCH! You can probably tell! I cut these two cuties from X-Press It Blending Card using the Bitty Bears Die-namics and then stamped them using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink using Bitty Bears. I colored them with Copic Markers and then put them to the side while I created my background.

I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and cut it using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, adding a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. I sponged on, starting at the bottom, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the background with water and watched the magic happen. Once the panel was dry, I cut two circles using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics, and then added the Bitty Bears using Foam Tape. I added strips of patterned paper from the Black & White Basics Paper Pack to the top and bottom of the card. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “I’m Here for You” from Bitty Bears using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. A trio of enamel dots finished off the card.

Smile, You’re Awesome! {CTD460}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Wanda has challenged us to use the combination of navy, green and white! LOVE!!

Print

I had so much fun playing with alcohol inks again for this challenge! I started with a panel of Yupo Paper cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, which I matted with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. I then pulled out blue and green alcohol inks and created the background.

I die cut the “smile” using the Double The Smiles Die-namics, and I cut it from Smooth White Card Stock four times and then layered them together to create one thick die cut. I added that to the card, and then trimmed down a panel of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock and stamped “You’re Awesome” from the All Smiles set using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using White Detail Embossing Powder. A trio of enamel dots finished off the card.
