January MFT Creative Challenge – Hearts!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

It’s time for the MFT Creative Challenge, and this month, it’s all about hearts!  I have two cards to share with you today showcasing this classic symbol of love!

My first card features a twist on one of the sketches from Blueprints 10 Die-namics!

Print

I started by cutting a panel of Grout Gray Card Stock using Blueprints 10 Die-namics and stamped the panel using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink using the Diagonal Stripes Background. I used Blueprints 10 Die-namics to cut the circle elements, and then added circles cut from Smooth White Card Stock.  Then, using the heart die from Blueprints 15 Die-namics, I cut hearts from Steel Grey Card Stock, Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, Pink Lemonade Card Stock and Blu Raspberry Card Stock.  I arranged them on top of the Smooth White Card Stock circles and popped them up with Jody Boosters.

I used one of the flag dies from Blueprints 10 Die-namics to cut the sentiment flag, and I stamped it with Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink using the “XOXOXO” stamp from LJD All My Love

Print

On the inside, I cut another panel of Grout Gray Card Stock using Blueprints 10 Die-namics, and stamped “I Love You”, also from LJD All My Love, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I added a Steel Grey Card Stock heart cut with Blueprints 15 Die-namics and stamped with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink to tie into the front of the card.

Print

My second card features the same color combo…I really love these colors together!

Print

I started by cutting a panel of Grout Gray Card Stock using the Fluttering Hearts Cover Up DIe-namics and stamped it with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I then cut hearts from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, Pink Lemonade Card Stock, Blu Raspberry Card Stock and Steel Grey Card Stock using the heart die from Blueprints 15 Die-namics, which fits PERFECTLY on top of the hearts in the Fluttering Hearts Cover Up Die-namics!  YAY!  I coated each heart with a Clear Wink of Stella Marker and then attached them to the Grout Gray Card Stock panel.  Once the glue was dry, I then pulled up each heart.  LOVE.

Here is another view.  You can see that when the hearts are pulled up, you can see the layer underneath, which was cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics using Smooth White Card Stock.

Print

On the inside, I added another panel of Grout Gray Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 DIe-namics and added a row of hearts cut with the same papers as I used on the front of the card, using Blueprints 15 Die-namics.  I coated them with a Clear Wink of Stella Marker as well, and then stamped “I ♥ You” from MSTN I Love You More using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I again added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 20 Die-namics.

You Are A Special Blessing In My Life! {SSSC253}

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!

It’s time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  This week, we are up to SSSC253!  I’ve paired this week’s Sketch challenge with the current Color Challenge from MFT!

Print

What a fun color combo right?  I super love them together!  I started by cutting a panel of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and I stamped the sentiment, “You Are A Special Blessing In My Life”, from LJD Cheerful Blessings, using Versamark Ink.  I then embossed the sentiment using White Embossing Powder.  I layered the circle panel on top of a panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I love this sweet scalloped panel!  I then layered them onto a panel of Limelight Prestige Card Stock cut with the Stitched Square STAX Die-namics and stamped it with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.

Print

The main panel of Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock was cut with Blueprints 14 Die-namics and stamped with the Linen Background using Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink.  I added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 3 Die-namics.  I added a panel of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock cut with the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics under the other panels, and finished off the front with enamel dots and a rhinestone.

Print

On the inside, I cut another panel of Wild Wisteria Prestige Card Stock using the Blueprints 14 Die-namics, and I also used them to cut a small strip of Blueberry Prestige Card Stock.  I added another Sweet Tooth Card Stock panel cut with Blueprints 14 Die-namics.  I added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 3 Die-namics, and I stamped the sentiment, “Friends Forever” from LJD Cheerful Blessings using Blueberry Premium Dye Ink.
