Heart Art Card Kit!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

I am so excited to share the new Heart Art Card Kit from My Favorite Things! This set is GORGEOUS, I LOVE the color palette that is included!!


I had lots of fun creating my card! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. Then, using the new Heart Art set, I stamped different conversation hearts (that’s what they remind me of!) using Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink, Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink and Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink. LOVE.

I used the new Double The Love Die-namics to cut Silver Sparkle Card Stock, and then used the same Die-namics to cut Smooth White Card Stock three times. I then layered them together, with the Silver Sparkle Card Stock on top, and then added them to my card. I stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” from Sweet Celebrations (already released) using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

MFT & MISTI!




Hi everyone! Happy Friday!
I am delighted to be participating in a collaboration with my beloved My Favorite Things and the amazing MISTI! I am SO excited!! 

I, literally, ONLY use a MISTI to stamp. I recently moved my stamp room to a different room and reorganized all of my supplies. I didn’t even MOVE my stamping blocks to my new room! I just do not use them, ever! It is truly a revolutionary tool!

I had a lot of fun creating my card! I’ve used the new Pure Innocence So Much Love, Pure Innocence So Much Love Die-namics and the new Scattered Hearts Background! SWOON! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using one of my MISTI tools (yes, plural, I actually have THREE!), I stamped the background using the Scattered Hearts Background. 

I have this MISTI set up for backgrounds (blue MISTI stickers so I know it’s the one for backgrounds), and I love the convenience! I stamped the Scattered Hearts Background stamps using one color at a time. I began with Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink, then Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Ink, Berrylicous Premium Dye Ink, and finally Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink. Because you can stamp the same stamp repeatedly, and be assured perfect placement, it was a breeze to stamp all of these colors. I love how they blended to created what looks like six different colors!


Once the background was stamped, I added a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics, and I popped it up with foam tape. LOVE. I then added a heart of Cotton Candy Card Stock (gosh, I love this color!) cut using the Stitched Heart STAX Die-namics.
Next up, I cut this little cutie from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the new Pure Innocence So Much Love Die-namics, and using my MISTI, I stamped her with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using the Pure Innocence So Much Love set. I always first stamp my image onto my MISTI paper, cut out the image with my Die-namics, and then lay the negative frame on top of the stamped image. I then insert the die-cut and re-stamp my image. PERFECT stamp image, EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.


Once she was stamped, I colored her with Copic Markers, and then added her to the card, popping her up with foam tape. I then cut the sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, and stamped, using my MISTI, the sentiment “I Adore You”, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots. Oh yes, my third MISTI, well it’s the mini, and I have it set up with stamps to stamp the back of all my cards. LOVE!

January MFT Birthday Project Challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It’s time for the January MFT Birthday Challenge! This month, it’s all about presents! I LOVE presents (smile).

Print

What’s better than a present? How about a HUGE present! I love this sweet Pure Innocence Happy Birthday To You! She is super fun to color! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the same Die-namics to cut a strip of patterned paper from the new Sweet Stack Paper Pack, and added it to one side of the card. I then added a rectangle cut from Sno Cone Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics.

I cut this cutie from No-Line Coloring Card using the Pure Innocence Happy Birthday To You Die-namics and stamped her with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Pure Innocence Happy Birthday To You. I colored her with Copic Markers, and then paper pieced her big present using Natural Card Stock and a pattern from the Sweet Stack Paper Pack. I popped her up with foam tape onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. The sentiment, “Happy Birthday To You” was stamped using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new MFT Sketch Challenge! This week we are up to WSC420! I had so much fun with this sketch!

Print

I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. for the three striped panels of the sketch I added two panels of patterned paper from the new Sweet Stack Paper Pack, and the third panel of Silver Sparkle Card Stock.

Using the darling new Tweethearts Die-namics, I cut the birdcage from Tickled Pink Prestige Card Stock, and the birds from No-Line Coloring Card Stock. I stamped the birdcage using Versamark Ink with Tweetharts and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I stamped the birds using Tweethearts with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and then colored them with Copic Markers. I popped the birdcage and birds up with foam tape onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I cut the sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, and then stamped “You Bet Your Beak I Love You”, from Tweethearts, using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Print

I had a lot of fun creating my card today! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. Using Snowflake Splendor, I stamped the snowflakes using Cornflower Premium Dye Ink, Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink, and then, for a bit of shimmer, stamped a few snowflakes using Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink.

I added a strip of Berrylicious Card Stock, and matted it with Silver Sparkle Card Stock. I then added a circle panel of Cornflower Prestige Card Stock cut using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I cut this super cute skiing bear from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Ski-sons Greetings Die-namics. I stamped him with Ski-sons Greetings using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and then colored him with Copic Markers. I popped him up onto the circle panel using foam tape, and I cut the sentiment panel from Smooth White Card Stock cut using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I stamped the sentiment panel with the sentiment, “You’re Snow Easy to Love” using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, I am the hostess! I have chosen the combo of black, white and brown this week! I was SO inspired by the farmhouse decor in the inspiration picture!

I am SO obsessed with the new Hearts Entwined Die-namics from the January MFT Release! Obsessed!! I began with a panel of Natural Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Hearts Entwined Die-namics, and adhered it to the Natural Card Stock panel.

I used the Hearts Entwined Die-namics to cut Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, Kraft Card Stock and patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I then inset these panels into the Smooth White Hearts Entwined Frame. LOVE. I cut a strip of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, and stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” from Sassy Pants Love, using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder . I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
