You’re The Cat’s Meow! {CTD316}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  This week, we are up to CTD316!

My mojo decided to go out for the night, so I went over to the MFT Blog and clicked on the Printable Resources section.  I then clicked on the Blueprints Sketches and chose one to use for my card!  I chose one of the Blueprints 1 Die-namics sketches to work with.  Instant mojo!  All of the panels on my card were cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics, except for the mat cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.

I’ve used the darling Pure Innocence Kitty Costume for my card today.  I stamped her with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then coated her outfit, which I colored to look like a cat, using a Clear Wink of Stella Marker.  I stamped and cut out her tail separately and then attached it on so it went “outside the box”.  I used Black Licorice Card Stock for the panel behind her and stamped it with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

The background panel of Kraft Card Stock was stamped with the Fine Check Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I used Blu Raspberry Card Stock for the scalloped panel, Orange Fizz Card Stock for the stitched vertical panel and Lemon Drop Card Stock for the button.  I tied the button panel with Hemp Cord.

On the inside, I added a Kraft Card Stock panel and stamped “You’re The Cat’s Meow” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I added another Orange Fizz Card Stock panel and stamped it with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

MFT October Creative Challenge – Cork!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the October MFT Creative Challenge!  This month, the MFT Design Team is working with one of our fabulous products…Cork Sheets!  SO fun!

I have two cards to share with you today, and they both feature our Cork Sheets!  My first card also features Thankful Thoughts, Fine Check Background, Burlap Background, Diagonal Stripes Background, Falling Leaves Die-namics and Words of Gratitude Die-namics!

Print

This card uses the current SCS Sketch Challenge, SC511, for the layout.  I LOVE this layout.  The main focal element is the fabulous cork word!  LOVE!  I used the Cork Sheets along with the Words of Gratitude Die-namics to cut out the word “grateful”.  I LOVE that!  My secret to cutting out the words, especially from cork or even felt, is to use the awesome Adhesive Sheets.  This makes it SUPER simple to make the back sticky!  These are must haves in my stamp room.

I attached the word “grateful” to a Smooth White Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.  I stamped the top of the circle with “so very” from Thankful Thoughts using Jellybean Green Premium Dye Ink.  The main panel was cut from Sno Cone Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics and stamped with the Burlap Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I cut a panel of Blu Raspberry Card Stock with Blueprints 13 Die-namics and stamped that as well with the Burlap Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I added this panel to the bottom of the card.  I then added two panels cut with the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics from Kraft Card Stock and Orange Fizz Card Stock.  The Kraft Card Stock panel was stamped with the Fine Check Background (one of my favorites!) using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and the Orange Fizz Card Stock was stamped with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

On the top, I added a flag of Blu Raspberry Card Stock cut with the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics and then added a trio of leaves cut with the Falling Leaves Die-namics using Jellybean Green Card Stock, Orange Fizz Card Stock and Kraft Card Stock.  I topped them off with a Sweet Tooth Button tied with Hemp Cord.

Print

On the inside, I added a Sno Cone Card Stock panel cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and stamped “for everything you do”, from Thankful Thoughts, using Jellybean Green Premium Dye Ink.  I added a panel of Orange Fizz Card Stock, also cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and stamped with the Diagonal Stripes Background (yes, I am obsessed with this background) using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

Print

My second card again features our Cork Sheets along with the Perk Up set (love), Coffee Cup Die-namics (love), Burlap Background and Diagonal Stripes Background!

Print

I used last week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, MOJO368, for the layout.  I started by cutting out the coffee cup with the Coffee Cup Die-namics (I am SO obsessed with these Die-namics) using Smooth White Card Stock.  I then cut the center panel for the cup from Cork Sheets!  LOVE!!!!!  I popped up my coffee cup with Jody Boosters onto a panel of Kraft Card Stock cut with the new Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics.  The heart, cut from Red Hot Card Stock, was cut with the Hearts A Plenty Die-namics and topped off with a Sweet Tooth Button tied with Hemp Cord.

Print

The main panel was cut from Gumdrop Green Card Stock cut with the Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I stamped the panel with the Burlap Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I added a Smooth White Card Stock panel stamped with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Kraft Premium Dye Ink.  I added a scallop border cut from Cork Sheets using the Blueprints 4 Die-namics.  LOVE that!

Print

On the inside, I cut two panels of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics and Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I stamped “Just to espresso my gratitude” using Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink.  I added a Red Hot Card Stock heart cut with the Coffee Cup Die-namics.
