Filled With Joy Card Kit: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

I am so excited to share another card today using the FABULOUS new Filled With Joy Card Kit! This incredible kit will be released tomorrow, Tuesday 9/25 at 10AM! WOOT!

Print

I LOVE this kit so much! I began with a panel of the included Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. Then, using the new Filled With Joy Die-namics, I cut seven snowmen all from the included card stock. The snowmen were all cut from Smooth White Card Stock backed with a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock.

Their hats were all cut from the gorgeous Black Velvet Paper and Silver Sparkle Card Stock, both included in the kit. Their noses were cut from Orange Zest Prestige Card Stock, and I gave them rosy cheeks using watered down Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I cut their scarves from Wild Cherry Card Stock, Red Hot Card Stock, Gumdrop Green Card Stock, Sour Apple Card Stock, Berrylicious Card Stock and Sno Cone Card Stock. I opted to not use a sentiment and let these cuties stand alone.

Filled With Joy Card Kit: Day One!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

I am SO excited to share the INCREDIBLE new MFT Card Kit with you…the Filed With Joy Card Kit! SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON! This ADORABLE new Card Kit will be released on Tuesday, September 25th at 10AM in the Brand Spankin’ New category in the MFT Boutique!

Print

I began with a panel of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then cut two panels of the included Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics and A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I layered them together and added them to the patterned paper panel using Foam Tape.

I cut the “J” base of the snowman head and  the “Y” three times from the included Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Filled With Joy Die-namics. I then cut the snowman face from Smooth White Card Stock, and the carrot nose from Orange Zest Prestige Card Stock. His scarf was cut from Red Hot Card Stock (my favorite red EVER), and his hat was cut from the included Black Velvet Paper (delish!) and the band from Silver Sparkle Card Stock. I then arranged “JOY” on the Smooth White Card Stock panel. I stamped “WISHING YOU & YOURS” from Filled With Joy onto a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed it with WOW White Embossing Powder. I trimmed the sentiment panel and added it to the card with Foam Tape, and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

September MFT Birthday Project!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It’s time for the September MFT Birthday Project Feature! This month, the MFT Design Team is sharing birthday creations that slide, spin and wobble! SO FUN!

Print

Today, I created a fiesta Birthday card using the SUPER fun Circle Spinner Channels Die-namics, which I used to make the piñata move back and forth. SO cool!!! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I sponged the panel using Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water and watched the magic happen.

I cut the panel using the Circle Spinner Channels Die-namics, and using one of the Spin & Slide Discs, created a place for the piñata to go back and forth.

Print

I cut “Fiesta” from Smooth White Card Stock using the Fiesta Die-namics four times, layered them together, and then added the die-cut to the panel. I cut this little cutie, the pinata, and the candy pieces from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Pure Innocence Birthday Piñata Die-namics and then stamped them using Pure Innocence Birthday Piñata using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and then added the pinata to the Spin & Slide Disc. I popped up the birthday girl and candy with Copic Markers.

A Million Thanks! {CTD511}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week, Amy Rysavy has challenged us to use  pink, peach, berry red and leaf green! Such a pretty combo!

Print

I really love these colors together! I cut the flowers and leaves using the Stitched Blooms Die-namics from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, Cotton Candy Card Stock, Peach Bellini Prestige Card Stock, Smooth White Card Stock and Green Room Prestige Card Stock.

I used the Bold Stripes Cover-Up Die-namics to cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and popped it up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 DIe-namics. I stamped “A MILLION THANKS” from Essential Sentiments using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and then arranged the flowers and leaves onto the main panel, popping them up with Foam Tape. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

September MFT Hits & Highlights!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

For this month’s September Hits & Highlights, the MFT Design Team is reaching for the stars! I had SO much fun creating my card today!

Print

I LOVE to create galaxy backgrounds using Distress Oxide Ink, and I knew I wanted to create one for my card today. I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. I then went over all of the colors first using Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink, and then lightly using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water, and then with white acrylic paint. Once the panel was dry, I spritzed on some shimmer spray.

Using the Shining Stars Die-namics, I cut Smooth White Card Stock panels four times and layered them together. I cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped “WHEN IT’S DARK, LOOK FOR THE” from Written In The Stars using Versamark Ink, and I then heat embossed it using WOW White Embossing Powder. I added that to the card, layered with a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I then added the “stars” die cut, and then added stars cut from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Shining Stars Die-namics.

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Wanda has challenged us to use red, green, orange and kraft! LOVE!

Print

I love the sweet new Pure Innocence Sending Blessings! I cut her from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Sending Blessings Die-namics, and then stamped her using Sending Blessings with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored her with Copic Markers and then popped her up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Gumdrop Green Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I stamped “Sending Blessings” repeatedly using Electric Red Premium Dye Ink, Tangy Orange Premium Dye Ink, Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink and Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I the cut a panel of patterned paper from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Paper Pack using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I popped the circle panel on top with Foam Tape. I cut the sentiment strip from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped “Sending Blessings” using Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

September MFT & Friends!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the September MFT & Friends feature! Today I have a card to share with you using the FABULOUS new Sassy Pants Best Friends set and the Miss You Die-namics from the September MFT Release!

Print

My card today features all of the elements that I love on a card. Black & white diagonal stripes, circle element, die cut word and a Distress Oxide background! I really had so much fun creating this! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink. I blended the colors together and then spritzed the panel with water.

I added a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I then added a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and stamped the sentiment from Sassy Pants Best Friends using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using WOW White Embossing Powder. I cut “miss you” from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Miss You Die-namics, and I cut them several times, layered them together and then added them to the card. I finished off the card with a trio of black enamel dots.
