October Creative Construction With Blueprints!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! It’s time for a new Creative Construction With Blueprints Challenge, and this month, we are working with Blueprints Die-namics that feature arrows, tags and banners! I worked with Blueprints 27 Die-namics, I am a sucker for that long banner panel!

Print

I LOVE Blueprints 27 Die-namics, and I love to create shaker cards using it! I started by cutting a panel of Kraft Card Stock using Blueprints 27 Die-namics, and I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. The frame panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 27 Die-namics, and I added a panel of acetate.  I filled all of the frames with Diamond Dust and then backed it with a panel of Sno Cone Card Stock. I LOVE all the sparkle!

I cut a panel of patterned paper from the Birthday Blowout Paper Pack using Blueprints 27 Die-namics and attached it across the shaker panel. I then cut the deer, bunny and bird from X-Press It Blending Card using the Dashing Deer Die-namics, and stamped them with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink using the Dashing Deer set. I colored them with Copic Markers and popped them up with Foam Tape onto the shaker window. Using the Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics, I cut snowflakes from Smooth White Card Stock and tucked them under the animals. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and I stamped “FOR A DEER FRIEND” using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

Happy Cake Day! {WSC355}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge! This week, we are up to WSC355, and it’s a super fun sketch! I went a little loose with the interpretation of the sketch this week, and went with a tall, layered image on my card.

Print

For my card, I began, as I usually do, with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the new A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of the panel cut from the Party Patterns Paper Pack, which I also cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics and then trimmed it down. I matted the main panel with Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics.

I cut the cake (which I LOVE), cake stand, flowers and cake banner from Smooth White Card Stock using the Celebrate With Cake Die-namics and then stamped the cake using Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. The banner was stamped using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and Pineapple Premium Dye Ink, and I used Pineapple Premium Dye Ink to stamp the flowers as well. The leaves were stamped using Green Room Premium Dye Ink, and the cake stand using Grout Gray Premium Dye Ink. I stamped “HAPPY CAKE DAY” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, and finished off the card by adding rhinestones to the center of the flowers.

Ghostly Greetings! {CTD465}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, I am the hostess, and I have chosen the combination of purple, black and white! I hope you love this combination, and the inspiration picture, as much as I do!

Print

I know I say this ALL the time, but I seriously had SO much fun creating this card! I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil to create the cloudy sky, and I sponged on Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. I cut a post it note using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics before sponging on the clouds, so that I would have a “moon” left after adding the clouds. I spritzed the clouds with water, and once the panel was dry, I sponged on Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink for the “ground” using the Drifts & Hills Stencil.

I stamped a tree from Modern Trees using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink, and then stamped two bats from Fab-BOO-Lous Friends also using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. The sentiment, Ghostly Greetings, also from Fab-BOO-Lous Greetings was also stamped using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. I then lightly sprayed the entire panel with a shimmer mist. I cut the three gravestones and the ghost from X-Press It Blending Card using the Fab-BOO-Lous Friends Die-namics, and then stamped them using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink with Fab-BOO-Lous Friends. I colored them with Copic Markers and popped them up with Foam Tape onto the scene. LOVE!

Snowflake Splendor Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! The time has come! The STUNNING new Snowflake Splendor Card Kit has been released! You can find it HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Print

I absolutely LOVE this kit, and have had SO much fun creating with it! My card tonight is my favorite of the cards I have created so far using this fabulous kit! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I added a mat of Silver Sparkle Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. I watered down some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and then splattered the Smooth White Card Stock panel. I also spritzed on some shimmer mist for a bit of sparkle.

The snowflakes were all cut using the GORGEOUS new Layered Snowflakes Die-namics from the included Blueberry Prestige Card Stock, Blue Yonder Prestige Card Stock, Silver Sparkle Card Stock and Translucent Vellum Card Stock. I LOVE them SO much! I then created layered snowflakes and added them to the splattered panel. I cut a panel of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and then stamped “Sending a Snowfall of Blessings Your Way” from the Snowfall of Blessings set using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment with White Detail Embossing Powder. I added a rhinestone to the center of each snowflake cluster to finish off the card.

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s almost time! The GORGEOUS new Snowflake Splendor Card Kit will be released tonight at 9PM EDT right HERE in the MFT Boutique! I LOVE this gorgeous kit!

Print

I decided to create a shaker card for my project today. I began by cutting a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Gift Box Cover Up Die-namics. I added a piece of acetate behind it, and then added Foam Tape around all of the edges. I filled the four frames with Ice Cube Mix Jewels (LOVE these!) and mixed in some Sparkling Clear Confetti for even more shimmer and shine. I backed the panel with Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock from the kit, cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics.

The snowflakes were all cut using the gorgeous new Layered Snowflakes Die-namics, and I cut them from the included Lavender Fields Prestige Card Stock, Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock, Silver Sparkle Card Stock and Translucent Vellum. I LOVE how they layer, they are SO gorgeous! I added a rhinestone to the center of each cluster, and then attached them to the card. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “LET IT SNOW” from Snow Globe Sentiments using Lavender Fields Premium Dye Ink.

Snowflake Splendor Card Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

It’s time for a new MFT Card Kit, and this month’s offering is SO gorgeous! I cannot get enough of the new Snowflake Splendor Card Kit! This beautiful new collection will be released tomorrow night, October 17th, at 9PM EDT in the MFT Boutique!

Print

This card was SO fun to create! I began with a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and I cut it using the new A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I stamped the snowflakes from Snowflake Splendor using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed them using White Detail Embossing Powder. I then sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink. I added water splatters, and when that was dry, I splattered on some shimmer spray.  I LOVE how this background came out!

I added a band of Pink Lemonade Prestige Card Stock cut with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics and then trimmed it down. I stamped it using the Diagonal Stripes Background with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. I layered a strip of Silver Sparkle Card Stock on top. The circle panel was cut from Sno Cone Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and I added the “joy” die cut, which was cut four times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Joy Die-namics, and I then coated it with Glossy Accents. I stamped “HOLIDAY BLESSINGS” using the Dashing Deer set with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, and then trimmed down the panel and added it to the circle panel. A trio of white enamel dots finished off my card.

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the October MFT Release Replay! The MFT Design Team is sharing projects today using products from the INCREDIBLE October Release! You can find all of the new products here!

PrintFor my card today, I’ve paired the adorable new Polar Pals and Polar Pals Die-namics with the gorgeous new Handwritten Holiday and of course, the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, my favorite! I started by cutting a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water and then with watered down white acrylic paint. I added the drifts, first cut Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then cut again using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics.

I stamped “merry & bright” from Handwritten Holiday using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the panel using White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut the trio of polar pals from X-Press It Blending using the Polar Pals Die-namics and then stamped them using Polar Pals with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and then popped them up using Foam Tape onto the scene. I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.
