I’m Under Your Spell {MFTWSC191}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday! 

I have a card to share with you using the new MFT Sketch Challenge, MFTWSC191!  I am in a Halloween mood (I love Halloween!) and I’ve used the adorable new BB Witch Way Is The Candy and the Witch Way Is The Candy Die-namics for my card today! 

MFTWSC191 Spell

Isn’t she such a cutie?  I started by cutting out a panel of X-Press It Blending Card using the Witch Way Is The Candy Die-namics and then stamped her using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and colored her with Copic Markers.  I added shimmer to her hat, cape and boots using a Clear Wink of Stella Marker.  I popped her up with Jody Boosters onto a panel of Kraft Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

I cut the Black Licorice Card Stock panel with Blueprints 12 Die-namics and then embossed the panel with the Polka Dot Cover Up Die-namics and Embossing Pad Duo.  I then cut two panels, Sour Apple Card Stock and Orange Fizz Card Stock, using the Vertical Stitched Strips Die-namics.  I then laid them onto the Black Licorice Card Stock panel and cut them with the Blueprints 12 Die-namics so that they fit the card front perfectly, and also had the stitched detail on the sides.  I added lines of rhinestones to either side of the diagonal panels.  I stamped the Orange Fizz Card Stock panel with the sentiment, “I’m Under Your Spell” from BB Witch Way Is The Candy, first in Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, and then repeated in Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

On the inside, I cut the main Kraft Card Stock panel and Black Licorice Card Stock panel with Blueprints 12 Die-namics, and the Smooth White Card Stock mat with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I embossed the Black Licorice Card Stock panel with the Polka Dot Cover Up Die-namics and Embossing Pad Duo.  I stamped “A Halloween Hello” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Friends Forever {CTD307}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited to be back with another Color Throwdown Challenge creation!  Today, I am not posting as the August Guest Designer, but rather the newest member of the Color Throwdown Team!  I am so excited!! 

I LOVE the colors this week, and just like in the inspiration picture, I used a sunflower! 

CTD307 Friends

I used Jen’s Deconstructed Sketch for the layout, DS165.  I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock and Blu Raspberry Card Stock using Blueprints 12 Die-namics.  I LOVE the stitched edge and I use this quite often.  I stamped the Blu Raspberry Card Stock panel using Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink using the Gingham Background.  I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics.

I used the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics to cut the Smooth White Card Stock panel.  I then created the flower using the Sunflower Die-namics using Lemon Drop Card Stock and Chocolate Brown Card Stock.  I cut the leaves with the Layered Leaves Die-namics cut from Jellybean Green Card Stock.  The sentiment panel was cut from Kraft Card Stock using Blueprints 12 Die-namics and I stamped the sentiment, “Friends Forever” from Cheerful Blessings, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

August MFT Creative Challenge – Water Coloring!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the August MFT Creative Challenge!  This month we are exploring the wonderful world of water coloring!  I had SO much fun creating my cards today, and I have two cards to share with you.

CC Hello Friend

My first card features water coloring and emboss resist!  SO fun!  I started with a piece of water color paper and cut it with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I then stamped seven different triangles from Trendy Triangles using Versamark ink and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Once that cooled I got to work with the water colors!  I used water color pencils and had a separate piece of water color paper that I used for a palette.  I chose three colors, pink, orange and yellow, and scribbled a bit of each color onto my palette.  I then grabbed my aquapainter and picked up a bit of color once I added some water.  I started on the bottom with the pink and then worked up to orange, then yellow.  Once the water coloring was dry, I wiped off the excess and viola!  The triangles appeared!  LOVE.

The sentiment is from Fall Foliage and I stamped it with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

On the inside, I cut another piece of water color paper with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I then water colored the same colors as I used on the front.  I stamped another sentiment from Fall Foliage using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

My second card uses water color pencils in a bit of a different manner.

CC Hello

I started by cutting a piece of water color paper with Blueprints 11 Die-namics.  I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I chose three colors of water color pencils, blue, green and yellow.  I colored directly onto the water color paper with the pencils, and then added water with my aquapainter.  I kept blending until I achieved the look I was after.  I stamped three different flowers from Grand Peaceful Wildflowers using Versamark ink and then embossed the flowers with black embossing powder.

The sentiment was stamped onto a Kraft Card Stock panel cut with the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics  I anchored it to the card with a Blu Raspberry Button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I again used water color paper cut with Blueprints 11 Die-namics and added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I added more water coloring on the side, and stamped another sentiment from Grand Peaceful Wildflowers using Versamark ink and then embossed with black embossing powder.
