Sending Smiles! {CTD307}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, sweet Lori has challenged us to use lime green, teal and yellow!  Such a fun color combo!

I just CANNOT get enough of these cute monsters from Monster Love!  I’ve paired them with the super fun Stitched Triple Peek-A-Boo Windows Die-namics!  I started by cutting three different monsters from Smooth White Card Stock using the Monster Love Die-namics, and I then stamped them using Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Limelight Premium Dye Ink and Sunshine Premium Dye Ink.  Their eyes and smiles were stamped using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. Aren’t they SO cute?  I love them!

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I used the Stitched Triple Peek-A-Boo Windows Die-namics to cut the three windows.  I added a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock behind the panel, and then added a strip of Smooth White Card Stock, stamped with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I topped that off with a thin strip of pattered paper and a strip of silver glitter tape.  I then added my monsters into the windows, popping them up a touch with Foam Tape, and stamped the sentiment, “Sending Smiles”, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

The night has arrived!  The INCREDIBLE new Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit was JUST released from MFT, and if you want one, you better head right HERE to the MFT Boutique to grab yours!  This kit is SO fantastic, I am just obsessed with the stitched flowers!

Print

I’ve paired the Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit with the SUPER fun Peek-A-Boo Polka Dots Die-namics and the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics.  I started by cutting two panels of Smooth White Card Stock, once using Blueprints 2 Die-namics and the other using the Peek-A-Boo Polka Dots Die-namics, and then layered them together.  I then cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics, and popped up the frame with Foam Tape.

The flowers and leaves were all cut from card stock included in the Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit, and I arranged them on the card using Foam Tape.  I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and then stamped “Smile” using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

Sensational Stitched Flowers: Day Two!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

Today is the second day of previews of the GORGEOUS new Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit!  Oh how I ADORE this kit…these stitched flowers have my heart for sure!

Print

I’ve paired the Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit with some other fab MFT products to create my card today!  I started with a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I then layered two circles, the Sweet Tooth Card Stock panel cut with Circle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then a Black Licorice Card Stock panel cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.  I stamped the Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock panel using the Scattered Surface Background using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the panel using White Detail Embossing Powder.

The flowers and leaves were all cut using the card stock included in the Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit, and I layered them around the circle panel.  I’ve used the new Thanks Die-namics to cut a panel of Silver Sparkle Card Stock.  The Thanks Die-namics is the newest free with $60 die, and MFT will not have a new free with $60 die with each kit release!  SO exciting!  I then cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Label Tape Die-namics, and stamped “SENDING” rom Label Maker Love using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I then popped that up with Foam Tape above the sparkly “thanks”.  I finished off my card with a trio of rhinestones/enamel dots.

Sensational Stitched Flowers: Day One!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

It’s time for a new MFT Card Kit, and this month’s kit, the Sensational Stitched Flowers Card Kit, does NOT disappoint!  These flowers are INCREDIBLE!

Print

OK, so I am OBSESSED with this month’s kit. The die-namics, the stamps, the new paper pack (omg,LOVE), the card stock…you get the idea!  For my card, I started by cutting the main panel of patterned paper from the included Kraft Collection Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Paper Pack using Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I cut a circle in the patterned paper using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, and the Smooth White Card Stock mat panel shows through.   I then cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock, also using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and stamped “have faith” (love) using Versamark Ink and embossed it with the included white embossing powder.  I popped up the circle panel using Foam Tape.

The flowers were cut from the included card stock, and I LOVE the stitched details and how beautifully they layer!  I arranged them around the popped up sentiment panel,and popped them up using Foam Tape!  LOVE!
