Buffalo Plaid Love! {CTD523}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, the last one of 2018, and this week, Broni has challenged us to use red, green, kraft and white! LOVE!

CTD523

I am OBSESSED with buffalo plaid. My entire Christmas tree this year is based on buffalo plaid. I want buffalo plaid on ALL the things. Of course, I HAD to get the FAB new Buffalo Plaid Background from Erin Lee Creative. I LOVE this stamp, and used it to create a Christmas banner for my fireplace (I really need to get a pic of that!). I began with a panel of red card stock and stamped it using the Buffalo Plaid Background using Tsukineko Versa Fine Clair Ink in Nocturne.

I stamped a panel of kraft card stock using the new Aztec Antlers set from Erin Lee Creative using Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then fussy cut the image (why did I not get the dies???) and popped it up with foam tape onto a panel of black card stock cut with a circle die. Before adding the focal panel to the buffalo plaid panel, I added a strip of green card stock and wrapped it with hemp twine. I added the focal panel using Foam Tape and then added a bow of hemp twine. I finished off the card with a trio of super cool cork dots that I have had in my stash forever!

December MFT & Friends!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the December MFT & Friends Feature! The INCREDIBLE December MFT Release is available now in the Brand Spankin’ New Section of the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the ADORABLE new Birdie Brown Friends at First Sip and Birdie Brown Friends at First Sip Die-namics!

I cut this cutie from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Friends at First Sip Die-namics and stamped her using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Friends at First Sip. I colored her with Copic Markers and popped her up with foam tape onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.

The main panel of Kraft Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, I stamped the coffee cup from Friends at First Sip repeatedly, creating a pattern. I added a strip of patterned paper from the Candy Land Paper Pack cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I cut a strip of Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock and stamped “You’ve Always Bean There for Me” from Friends at First Sip using Versamark and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

I mean, can you even STAND the cuteness of all of these new goodies?? I ADORE them all! I began with a panel of Sno Cone Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I added a panel of Steel Grey Prestige Card Stock and a panel of Green Room Prestige Card Stock for the sidewalk and the grass. I used the Boutique Die-namics (which I LOVE) to create the coffee shop. This was SO fun to create! I cut the building from Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock, Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock and then used Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock for the door.

I added a coffee sign to the window, and cut the circle from Field Day Prestige Card Stock using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics, and I used the same card stock for the awning. The topiaries were cut from Persimmon Prestige Card Stock and Green Room Prestige Card Stock. I cut this darling coffee drinking girl, her pup, and the coffee cup on the window sign from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Friends at First Sip Die-namics, and then stamped them using Friends at First Sip with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored all three images with Copic Markers and then put the scene together. I opted for no sentiment for this one.
