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.

I Need Your Hugs–STAT! {CTD476}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Lisa has challenged us to use Light Blue, Kraft and White! Such a PRETTY combo!

Print

For my card, I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I stamped snowflakes from Snowflake Splendor using Natural Premium Dye Ink, Blue Breeze Premium Dye Ink and Silvery Shimmer Delicata Pigment Ink.

I used the Twice the Hugs Die-namics to cut out “Hugs” from Blue Breeze Prestige Card Stock, and I cut out four of them, layered them together, coated the die-cut using a Clear `Wink of Stella Brush Marker, and then added it to the card. I cut a strip of Natural Card Stock and stamped “I Need Your Hugs – STAT” from Lots of Hugs using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. I layered the panel onto a piece of patterned paper from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels Paper Pack, which I cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and matted using the A2 Rectangle STAX 1 Die-namics.

January MFT Release Replay!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

How AMAZING is the MFT January Release! I just LOVE all of the new products, which you can find right HERE in the MFT Boutique! Today, the MFT Design Team is sharing even more inspiration using the new goodies!

Today I have a card to share with you using the new Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses, Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses Die-namics, Full of Heart Die-namics and the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack! LOVE!

Print

I really had a blast creating the background for this card! I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and sponged on Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink, Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water, and when dry, with watered down white acrylic paint. LOVE. I then cut the panel using the Full of Heart Die-namics. I then cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the die cut heart panel as a “stencil” and added foam tape in each heart opening. I removed the “stencil” and then added the hearts. LOVE.

I cut this cutie from X-Press It Blending Card using the Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses Die-namics, and I stamped her using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses. I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress using the new Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I popped her up with Foam Tape onto the heart background, and added a sentiment panel cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I stamped “It’s Simple. I Love You” using the new Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

You Are My Favorite Person! {CTD475}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, I am your hostess! I have chosen the gorgeous combination of navy, aqua and pink! LOVE!

Print

I’ve used some gorgeous new MFT goodies on my card today! I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and then cut the panel using the GORGEOUS new Full of Heart Die-namics, which I LOVE! I then used the Full of Heart Die-namics to cut After Midnight Prestige Card Stock, Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock and Cotton Candy Card Stock. I then inset the colored hearts into the main Smooth White Card Stock panel, creating a pattern. I LOVE how it came out!

I cut the sentiment panel from After Midnight Prestige Card Stock and stamped “YOU ARE MY FAVORITE PERSON” from the GORGEOUS new From The Heart set using Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed the panel using White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut a heart using the new Stitched Heart Peek A Boo Window Die-namics from Smooth White Card Stock, and placed it behind the sentiment panel. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Today I have a card to share with you using the gorgeous new Valentine Wishes set! I LOVE the font!

You all know I am obsessed with Distress Oxide Inks, and I had fun creating this card! I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. These inks blend together so effortlessly! I then spritzed the panel with water and watered down white acrylic paint.

Once the panel was dry, I stamped “hugs kisses & valentine wishes” from Valentine Wishes using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the card.
