Bundle of Balloons Card Kit: Day One!

HI everyone! Happy Sunday!

It’s time to reveal the July MFT Card Kit! This month’s kit, the Bundle of Balloons Card Kit, is SOOOOOO fun!

Print

This card was SUPER fun to create! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock which I cut using the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics, and I stamped balloons from the new Bundle of Balloons set using Red Hot Premium Dye Ink, Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Tangy Orange Premium Dye Ink, Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink, Field Day Premium Dye Ink, Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Cornflower Premium Dye Ink and Boysenberry Premium Dye Ink. LOVE! I stamped the balloon strings using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics, and then popped up just the frame using Foam Tape. On the inner panel, I used this month’s Free with $60 Die, the Birthday Boy & Girl Die-namics, to cut the panel. I then used the same dies to cut the included Cornflower Glitter Card Stock and Red Hot Glitter Card Stock and inset them into the panel. I then added the stamped and die-cut panel to the card. LOVE how this came out!

July Birthday Project: Confetti!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It’s time for the July MFT Birthday Project Challenge! This month, it’s all about confetti! For my card, I added confetti to a shaker! Who doesn’t love a shaker card!

Print

Not only do I love shaker cards, I love rainbows! LOVE! I began with a panel of Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then cut the panel again using the Cloud Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics. I used one of the Cloud Shaker Pouches and filled it with Nuvo Crystal Cloud Circles (they are SO sparkly and pretty!).

I cut the rainbow using the End of the Rainbow Die-namics from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock, Cotton Candy Card Stock, Daffodil Prestige Card Stock, Green Room Prestige Card Stock, Blueberry Prestige Card Stock and Lavender Fields Prestige Card Stock. LOVE! I attached it to the card so that it ends in the cloud, trimming off the excess. I added a sun cut from Daffodil Prestige Card Stock using the Sunny Skies Die-namics, and I cut a panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Essential Sentiments using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of Lily White Sprinkles.

It’s a Good Day to Be Happy! {CTD394}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge, and I had a BLAST creating my card!

Print

I began with a panel of Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I placed the Small Brick Wall Stencil on top and sponged on Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink. I then cut the panel using the Classic Window Die-namics. I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Classic Window Die-namics and added that to the panel. I cut the curtains from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock and placed same behind the window panel, and the shutters were cut from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock (I love the shutters!).

I cut the trim and the window box (a simple rectangle panel, not cut with a die) from Smooth White Card Stock and added them to the window. The flowers and leaves were cut using the Stitched Flowers Die-namics from Cotton Candy Card Stock, Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock, Pineapple Prestige Card Stock, Gumdrop Green Card Stock and Sour Apple Card Stock. I arranged the flowers and leaves along the window box and added centers to the flowers using Lily White Sprinkles. I stamped the sentiment, “It’s a Good Day to Be Happy” from Aim For The Clouds using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using WOW White Embossing Powder.

Have a Jawsome Day! {CTD502}

mHi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Barbara has challenged us to use cobalt blue, aqua, gray and white! LOVE!

Print

I have SO much fun creating this scene! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I sponged on Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and blended them together. Using the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil, I lightly sponged on Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink to look like the suns rays permeating the water. I spritzed the panel with water and set it aside to dry.

I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then cut it again using the Snow Drifts Die-namics.I added this to the inked panel for the “sand”. I cut the shark, fish and other sea life images from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Beach Buds Die-namics and then stamped them with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Beach Buds. I colored them with Copic Markers and then added them to the scene using Foam Tape. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and then stamped “Have a Jawsome Day” using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I added rhinestones to mimic water bubbles to finish off the card!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the July MFT & Friends feature! The MFT Design Team & Friends are sharing even more inspiration featuring products from the July MFT Release! You can find all of the new goodies right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the new Queen For The Day set and Crown Die-namics! LOVE!

Print

This card was SO fun to create! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink and blended them together. I splattered on some shimmer mist for lots of sparkle.

The crown was cut three times, once from Silver Sparkle Card Stock and twice from Smooth White Card Stock using the Crown Die-namics. I layered them together with the Silver Sparkle Card Stock panel on top. I attached the crown to the card and stamped “I hereby appoint you Queen for the Day  from Queen for the Day using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment using WOW White Embossing Powder. I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

You’re A Ray of Sunshine!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for a very special little girl! My dear bestie’s little girl turned one this past weekend, and she is PURE sunshine!

Print

I had so much fun creating this card! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then cut it again using the Sunshine Shaker Die-namics. I popped the panel up with Foam Tape onto a panel of Lemon Chiffon Card Stock so that you see this color underneath. LOVE.

I cut “sunshine” using the Sunshine Die-namics four times from Smooth White Card Stock, and layered them together. I inked the top layer using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. I then coated the die-cut using Glossy Accents. I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “You’re A Ray of Sunshine” from Full of Sunshine using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using WOW White Embossing Powder. I added the sentiment panel to the card, and then attached the die cut above it. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

July MFT Just Add Color

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for the July MFT Just Add Color Feature! Today I created a stamp guide using the darling new Love Bugs and Love Bugs Die-namics!

Print

I LOVE this set, and the puffy clouds are my favorite! I cut all the images from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Love Bugs Die-namics, and I then stamped them using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Love Bugs.

Print

I colored them all with Copic Markers and then added some highlights with a White Gel Pen. The clouds were coated with glitter, and they are SUPER sparkly in real life!
