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.

Make A Wish! {WSC325}

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

Today I have a card to share with you using the current MFT Sketch Challenge, WSC325!  Such a fun sketch with lots of possibilities!

Print

For my card, I pulled out the darling Pure Innocence Cupcake Day and paired her with Birthday Speech Bubbles!  So fun!  I cut this sweet PI, and her balloon, using the Pure Innocence Cupcake Day Die-namics, and then stamped them both using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink with Pure Innocence Cupcake Day.  I colored her and her balloon with Copic Markers.  I cut two panels of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Square STAX Die-namics, and then trimmed one down to about 1/2 and inch.  I added it to the bottom of the complete square to lengthen it a bit to accommodate my PI, and hid the separation with the flag cut from the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.

I popped up the focal panel using Foam Tape onto another pattern from the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack, cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I added the speech bubble (LOVE) cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Birthday Speech Bubbles Die-namics, and stamped it using Birthday Speech Bubbles using Pineapple Premium Dye Ink.  A trio of rhinestones and an enamel dot finish off my card.
