There's Snow One Quite Like You! {CTD477}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Lori has challenged us to use the combination of orange, aqua and grey! GORGEOUS!

For my card today, I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I embossed the panel using the Peek A Boo Polka Dots Die-namics and the Embossing Pad Duo. I then added a strip of patterned paper using the Fun & Frolic Paper Pack.

I cut the two snowmen from X-Press It Blending Card using the Cooler With You Die-namics, and I stamped them with Cooler Than You using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and then popped them up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Berrylicious Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. The sentiment panel was cut from Orange Fizz Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped the sentiment from Cooler With You using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using White Detail Embossing Powder. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Yay For You Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

The INCREDIBLE new Yay For You Card Kit has been released from MFT! You can find it right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

I really have had SO much fun creating with this kit! For my card today, I cut strips of the included Razzle Berry Card Stock, Bubblegum Card Stock, Daffodil Prestige Card Stock, Limelight Prestige Card Stock and Berrylicious Card Stock and then layered them together. I then cut the panel down, making sure to keep the stripes at an angle. I used the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics to cut a panel of the included Smooth White Card Stock to create the frame.

I cut the "Yay" from the included Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the So Many Yays Die-namics. I then used the same die to cut three more "Yay"s from the included Smooth White Card Stock and then layered them together with the Silver Sparkle Layer on top. LOVE. I added that to the card, and then cut a strip of Smooth White Card Stock and stamped "GO YOU!" from Yay For You using Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink. I trimmed it down and added it under the die cut. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots created using Gloss White Nuvo Crystal Drops

Yay For You Card Kit: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s almost time for the release of the INCREDIBLE new Yay For You Card Kit! This fantastic kit will be released tonight at 9PM EDT right HERE in the MFT Boutique!



The Yay For You Card Kit is SO much fun to play with!! For my card today, I started with a panel of the included Smooth White Card Stock and cut it using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then cut it again using the Stitched Strip Die-namics, which I love as it creates such a pretty, but clean, background.

I stamped a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using several sentiments from Yay For You with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink, Bubblegum Premium Dye Ink, Daffodil Premium Dye Ink, Limelight Premium Dye Ink and Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink. I then cut a panel of the included Razzle Berry Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I cut the panel again using the new So Many Yays Die-namics.I placed the stamped panel underneath so the multi-colored sentiments appear through the “YAY” die-cut. I cut a panel of the included Berrylicious Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and then stamped “YOU TOTALLY DID IT” from Yay For You using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using White Detail Embossing Powder. I added a trio of my own enamel dots using Carnation Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops, Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops and Apple Green Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Oh how I ADORE this new kit! I had SO much fun creating this card! I began by cutting strips of the included Razzle Berry, Bubblegum, Daffodil, Limelight and Berrylicious Card Stock and then layering them together. I then cut them using the new So Many Yays Die-namics. I cut a panel of the included Smooth White Card Stock using the So Many Yays Die-namics, and then layered it under the multi-color Yay. I coated the panel using Glossy Accents and put it aside to dry (SO hard to wait!).

I cut a panel of the included Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then stamped, repeatedly, a few of the sentiments from the new Yay for You set using Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink, Bubblegum Premium Dye Ink, Daffodil Premium Dye Ink, Limelight Premium Dye Ink and Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink. I cut a circle of Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then cut it down using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I added the “yay” on top, and then finished off my card by creating my own trio of dots using Carnation Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops, Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops and Caribbean Ocean Nuvo Crystal Drops.

January Birthday Project Challenge: Celebrate Good Times!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

We have an exciting new monthly challenge to share with you, the Birthday Project Challenge! This month, the challenge is to incorporate the word “celebrate” into your creations!

Print

The Celebrate Die-namics are one of my all time favorite MFT products, so I knew I wanted to use it on my card! I started with a panel of Yupo Paper cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I created the background using Stream and Wild Plum from the Nature Walk Alcohol Inks, Aqua from Lakeshore Alcohol Inks and Silver Metallic from the Metallic Mix Gold & Silver set. I also LOVE to use the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool to move the alcohol inks around on the Yupo Paper.

Once the background was dry, I added a frame of Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Snow Drifts Cover Up Die-namics. I cut “celebrate” four times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Celebrate Die-namics. I then layered them together and added them to the card. I cut a panel of Eggplant Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “MAY ALL OF YOUR WISHES COME TRUE” from Make A Wish using Versamark Ink and then heat embossing it with White Detail Embossing Powder, and I added the sentiment panel under the “Celebrate” with Foam Tape.

It’s Simple–You Are Loved! {WSC368}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and this week’s sketch is SO fun! I SO love a sketch with a circle element!

Print

This card was SUPER fun to create! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Mod Rectangle STAX Die-namics and then sponged on Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink. I blended them together and then spritzed on water, and when dry, spritzed on watered down white acrylic paint. Once the panel was dry, I placed the new Full of Heart Stencil on top and then sponged on Sweet Tooth PIgment Ink. I SUPER love how this panel came out!

I popped this panel up onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I then added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics. I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then stamped “you are loved” from the GORGEOUS new 100% Lovable set using Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. LOVE how it looks ombre! I cut Tropical Teal Prestige Card Stock cut using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “IT’S SIMPLE” from the fabulous new From The Heart set using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.
