Hello, Friend!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!

I have another card to share with you today using the fabulous new Distress Oxide Inks!  I can’t believe how much I love these inks!!

Print

I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, and I sponged on Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.  After blending the colors, which takes no time at all since they blend SO beautifully, I added water droplets and let the magic happen!  LOVE!

I cut Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Big Hello Die-namics, and the arranged the letters on the panel.  I cut a sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the Label Tape Die-namics, and stamped “FRIEND” from Label Maker Sentiments using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  A trio of rhinestones finish off the card.

How CUTE is this little kitty!  I love the sweet Meow You Doin’? set from Lawn Fawn!  My friend Justin owns the local stamp store here on Long Island, and is a bit of an enabler!  LOL!! I started with the background and I stamped “meow” and the paw print repeatedly onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink, Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink and Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink.  I cut the panel with Blueprints 1 Die-namics and then added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics.  I then added a strip of patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka In the Meadow Paper Pack.

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then cut the sweet kitty and cat food birthday cake (SO CUTE!) from X-Press It Blending Card using the Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’? Lawn Cuts and then stamped them using Meow You Doin’? using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers and then popped them up onto the circle panel.  The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 12 Die-namics, and I stamped “HAPPY PURRTHDAY” using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

March MFT Creative Construction With Blueprints!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the March MFT Creative Construction With Blueprints feature, and this month, the MFT Design Team is creating using Blueprints Die-namics that feature scallop elements!  SO fun!

Print

I’ve used Blueprints 14 Die-namics for my card, I just LOVE this Blueprints Die-namics!  It’s one of my favorites!  I cut a panel of patterned paper from the Tiny Check Brights Paper Pack, and I am seriously crushing on this Ripe Raspberry gingham!  I layered it onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock, and then added the scalloped element, also cut from Smooth White Card Stock.

I cut a circle of Natural Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then added the tea cup, cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Tea Party Die-namics.  I stamped the cup with the Cup of Tea set using Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Daffodil Premium Dye Ink and Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink.  I added a spoon to the tea cup cut from Silver Shine Card Stock using the Tea Party Die-namics. I added a flower and leaves, cut from Blueprints 12 Die-namics from Daffodil Prestige Card Stock and Gumdrop Green Card Stock, and topped off the flower with a button tied with a Hemp Cord bow. 

I added a flag sentiment panel cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, and I stamped “You’re My Cup Of Tea” from Cup of Tea using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Happy Birthday, Friend!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

I have been having SO MUCH fun creating with the new Distress Oxide Inks! I seriously CANNOT put them down!

Today I have a super simple card to share with you, and I created the background by sponging Distress Oxide Inks onto black cardstock! LOVE!

Print

I started by cutting a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I placed the Abstract Stencil on top of my panel, and then sponged on Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink, Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink.  You can even tell from the photograph how smooth and soft they are!  LOVE these inks!

I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics, and “friend” from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Friends Die-namics. I then cut a strip of Smooth White Card Stock and stamped “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” from Essential Sentiments using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I finished off my card with a trio of enamel dots.
