Another Birthday? Piece of Cake! {CTD394}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Amy has challenged us to use pink, blue and red (I went with hot pink…shhhh!)!

Print

For my card today, I’ve used the darling Piece of Cake set, and I stamped the cake onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink and Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink.  The candles were stamped using Blue Yonder Premium Dye Ink and the flames in Daffodil Premium Dye Ink.  I cut out the panel using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

The background was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Jumbo Dot Cover Up Die-namics, and I cut it again from Blue Yonder Prestige Card Stock, Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock and Cotton Candy Card Stock.  I then inset the colored circles into the “frame” I cut.  LOVE.  I added a strip of patterned paper from the Painted Prints Smitten Paper Pack (one of my favorites).  I popped up the circle panel and then added the sentiment panel, cut from Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 2 Die-namics and stamped using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Creative Construction With Blueprints: Seeing Stars!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the May MFT Creative Construction With Blueprints feature!  This month, the MFT Design Team is working with Blueprints Die-namics that contain stars!  SO fun!

Print

I’ve used Blueprints 24 Die-namics for my card today, and took the star theme even further by using the SUPER fun Out Of This World set and Out Of This World Die-namics!  I started by cutting a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 24 Dienamics and I sponged on Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink, After Midnight Premium Dye Ink and Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink.  I spritzed the panel for a starry look.  I popped this panel onto of a panel of Smooth White Card Stock that I stamped with the stars from Out Of This World using Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink, After Midnight Premium Dye Ink, Pure Plum Premium Dye Ink and Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink.

I used the Out Of This World Die-namics to cut the rocket from X-Press It Blending Card and stamped it using Out Of This World using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored it with Copic Markers and then popped it up onto my starry sky using Jody Boosters. The sentiment panel was cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock and I stamped the sentiment, “It’s Your Time To Take Off” using Versamark Ink and then heat embossing it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I added a trio of stars cut using Blueprints 24 Die-namics from Silver Sparkle Card Stock.

I’m Happy To Be Stuck With You! {WSC281}

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

I have a card to share with you today using the current MFT Sketch Challenge, WSC281!  I am a sucker for a sketch with a circle element!

Print

For some reason, as soon as I saw this sketch, I immediately knew I wanted to use the Sweet Succulents set!  I just love this set!  I cut out the succulents and the pots from X-Press It Blending Card using the Sweet Succulents Die-namics and then stamped them with Sweet Succulents using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers and arranged them onto a panel of Kraft Card Stock cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

I cut a panel of Razzle Berry Card Stock using the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and stamped it with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink using the Fine Chevron Background. I then added the circle with the succulents using Jody Boosters, and the sentiment panel, cut from Sweet Tooth Card Stock and stamped with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Thank You For Your Hospitality! {CTD393}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  This week, Broni has challenged us to use blush, rose, gray and white!  So fun!

Print

I have a clean and simple card to share with you today!  I created a little scene using the super fun Make Yourself At Home set and Make Yourself At Home Die-namics!  I cut the chair, pillow, table and vase of flowers from X-Press It Blending Card using the Make Yourself At Home Die-namics and stamped them using Make Yourself At Home using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers and then popped them up with Jody Boosters.  I used a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker to give the chair a shimmery look, and a glaze pen to give the vase a realistic shine. 

I popped all of the elements up with Jody Boosters onto a panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with the Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX Die-namics.  I popped the entire panel up with Jody Boosters onto a piece of patterned paper from the Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I stamped the sentiment underneath using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and then added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the card.
