MFT July Release Countdown: Day Four!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday and Happy Fourth of July!

We are still counting down to the incredible new MFT July Release!  The entire release will be available on Tuesday, July 7th at 10PM right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the latest offering from Torico, BB Birthday Bears and BB Birthday Bears Die-namics!  I’ve also used the new LLD Hip Clips Die-namics and the Pierced Rectangle Frames Die-namics!

Oh how I LOVE these sweet bears!  For my card, I stamped the bear and balloon using Versamark onto Ranger Watercolor Paper and then embossed them with Black Embossing Powder.  I then colored them using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers and a Medium Waterbrush.  I framed him using the new Pierced Rectangle Frames Die-namics, cut from Smooth White Card Stock

The sweet little clip was created using the awesome new LLD Hip Clips Die-namics using Orange Fizz Card Stock, Daffodil Prestige Card Stock and Tropical Teal Prestige Card Stock.  I also added a bow of Hemp Cord.  I stamped “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink onto a little piece of Smooth White Card Stock and trimmed it down and added it on top of the Hip Clip.  The main panel was cut from the GORGEOUS new Plaid Patterns Paper Pack using Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics.

MFT July Release Countdown: Day Five!

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

It’s time to start the countdown to the AMAZING new MFT July Release!  Oh my!  I cannot WAIT for you all to see what is in store from MFT this month!  Amazing new stamps and Die-namics, and, get ready for this…PATTERNED PAPER PACKS!  Be still my heart!  All of the new products will be released on Tuesday, July 7th at 10PM right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

I have two cards to share with you today, and both feature my newest favorite Blueprints Die-namics, Blueprints 26 Die-namics!  They also both feature the GORGEOUS new Dots & Stripes Sorbet Paper Pack, and my first card features the new Plaid Patterns Paper Pack

Print

The only dies I used to create my card are the ones included in the new Blueprints 26 Die-namics!  It’s a must have for sure!  I started by cutting the main panels.  The bottom was cut from the new Dots & Stripes Sorbet Paper Pack, and the top portion was cut from the new Plaid Patterns Paper Pack.  The balloons were cut from Cotton Candy Card Stock and Sour Apple Card Stock.  I LOVE the sweet bows!  Aren’t they the cutest?  They, along with the balloon strings, were cut from Sweet Tooth Card Stock.

The “happy”, which I LOVE, was cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, and the cute little tab was cut from Sweet Tooth Card Stock.  I added two sequins and a rhinestone to finish off this card.

My second card also features Blueprints 26 Die-namics, the Dots & Stripes Sorbet Paper Pack, as well as the new Birthday Wishes & Balloons set!  LOVE!

This card was SO easy to create!  This new Blueprints 26 Die-namics makes whipping up a Birthday Card a snap, especially at the last minute (which is when I am usually making mine!)  I started by cutting the main panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock using Blueprints 26 Die-namics.  I stamped “happy BIRTHDAY!” from Birthday Wishes & Balloons set using the MISTI and Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink

The balloon at the top of the card was first cut from Dots & Stripes Sorbet Paper Pack using the main die from Blueprints 26 Die-namics, and I then cut it again to create the balloon edge.  LOVE!!!  I cut a bow and string from Sweet Tooth Card Stock and added them to the balloon.  I then added a star sequin, pink sequin and rhinestone to finish off the card.

Hello! {CTD349}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week, I am the hostess!  I’ve thrown down white, kraft, turquoise and orange, and I would LOVE it you played along with us for CTD349!

I’ve been experimenting with my card photography, and think perhaps I’ve found a system I like. I would love to know what you think!  It’s always a learning experience for me!

I’ve used my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers on this card, and the more I use them, the more I LOVE them!  It’s been a while (since the MISTI actually), that I’ve been this excited about a non-MFT crafty purchase!  My MFT goodies always make me swoon! 

Seriously, I am SO happy with these flowers!  I cut them from Ranger Watercolor Paper using the LJD Circle Scribble Flowers Die-namics and then stamped them using LJD Circle Scribble Flowers using Versamark.  I then embossed them with White Detail Embossing Powder.  Using a Medium Waterbrush, I started laying on color using the Zig Clean Color Markers, working in each separate section of the flowers until they were complete.  I then did the same process for the leaves.  LOVE.

The main panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock was cut with the Stripes Cover Up Die-namics, which I then used again to cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock, which I then inserted for the stripes.  I added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics, which mats PERFECTLY.  I cut out “hello” from Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock using the Happy Hellos Die-namics, which I then coated with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  I added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the card.
