Hello! {CTD497}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, Lori has challenged us to use coral, yellow, pale aqua and green! SO pretty!

Print

I am completely and utterly obsessed with the new Stitched Blooms Die-namics. I cannot stop using them, and I thought this week’s colors were PERFECT with them! I cut the flowers and leaves from Lemon Chiffon Prestige Card Stock, Berrylicious Card Stock, Sour Apple Card Stock, Coral Crush Prestige Card Stock and Smooth White Card Stock. LOVE them!

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I layered on a circle cut from Kraft Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I then layered on the leaves and flowers, popping them up with Foam Tape. The “hello” was cut three times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Hello Die-namics, and then added them to the circle panel as well. I finished off the card with a trio of aqua enamel dots.

June MFT & Friends!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the June MFT & Friends feature! The MFT Team, and friends, are sharing even more inspiration using fabulous products from the June MFT Release! You can find all of the new goodies right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the gorgeous new Moroccan Mosaic Die-namics!

Print

I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink, Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink and blended them together. I spritzed the panel with water and put it aside to dry.

Using the Moroccan Mosaic Die-namics, I cut a panel of Gold Sparkle Card Stock. I cut another two mosaics from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, and then layered all three together with the gold panel on top. I added the mosaic to the distress ink background, and then cut “celebrate” three times from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock, layered them together and then added the die-cut to the mosaic. I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, and stamped “YOU HAVE A HEART OF GOLD” from Essential Sentiments using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I finished the card with a trio of Beetle Black Sprinkles.

June MFT Just Add Color!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for the MFT June Just Add Color Feature!  Today I have colored a stamp guide for the ADORABLE new Meow Mix set! LOVE!!

Print

These little kitties, and of course the flowers, were SO fun to color! I cut them all from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Meow Mix Die-namics, and then stamped them using Meow Mix with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored them all with Copic Markers, and then added highlights using a White Gel Pen.

Hello–Consider This A Hug! {CTD496}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Lisa has challenged us to use the GORGEOUS combo of aqua, black & white! LOVE!

Print

I’ve used the gorgeous new Moroccan Mosaic Stencil and Hello Die-namics from MFT for my card. I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I placed the Moroccan Mosaic Stencil on top and sponged on Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink, taking care to sponge lightly around the edges, and harder in the center, in order to obtain the variation of tone. Before removing the stencil, I sprayed the panel with shimmer mist, so the inked portion is SUPER sparkly in real life!

I cut “hello” four times from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Hello Die-namics, and then layered them together. I added the die-cut to my card, and then cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I stamped “Consider This A Hug” from Lots of Hugs using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it using WOW White Embossing Powder. I finished off my card with a trio of rhinestones.

June MFT New Product Launch!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time! The AMAZING June MFT Release is live and available now, right HERE, in the MFT Boutique! YAY!

Today I have a card to share with you using the ADORABLE new Just Beclaws and Just Beclaws Die-namics! I love this little crabs!

Print

I mean, how CUTE are these little guys? I cut them, along with their sweet treats and the umbrella from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Just Beclaws Die-namics, and then stamped them using Just Beclaws with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel with water, and when dry, I stamped “Have a Clawsome Day” from Just Beclaws using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the sentiment using White WOW Embossing Powder. The “sand” was cut from Kraft Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics and then again using the Snow Drifts Die-namics. I cut a strip of Tropical Teal Prestige Card Stock, coated it with Chunky Glitter, and tucked it under the sand. I cut the sun from Daffodil Prestige Card Stock and then added the crabs and umbrella, popping them up with Foam Tape.

Today I have a card to share with you using what I think MAY just be my favorite MFT product ever…the Stitched Blooms Die-namics, which I’ve paired with the new Hello Die-namics!

Print

It’s not even normal how much I LOVE these flowers! For my card today, I used the Stitched Blooms Die-namics to cut Smooth White Card Stock, and I’ve used TONS of Distress Oxide Inks to ink them up! I’ve used Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink, Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink, Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink, Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink.

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I added a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and arranged my inked flowers and leaves. I popped them up with Foam Tape and then cut “hello” three times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Hello Die-namics. I layered them together and then added them to the circle panel. I finished off my card with a trio of enamel dots.

June MFT Release Countdown: Day Two!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

We are getting closer and closer to the FABULOUS June MFT Release! All of the new products will be available on Tuesday, June 5th at 9PM EST right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the new Fireworks set, You Wow Me set and the WOW Die-namics!

Print

I began with a panel of Black Licorice Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX Die-namics. The, using the SUPER cool Fireworks set, I stamped the fireworks Versamark Ink and then heat embossed them using Zing! Embossing Powders. This new set is SO cool in that each firework is comprised of two different stamps, so you can make them different colors. LOVE that!!

Print

It is REALLY difficult to capture how sparkly the fireworks are via photograph. The Zing! Silver Glitter Embossing Powder has the MOST gorgeous sparkle!

Print

I used the new WOW Die-namics to cut WOW from Silver Sparkle Card Stock, and then three times from Smooth White Card Stock. I layered them together for a thick die cut and then added them to my card. The sentiment panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “Celebrate with a Bang” from You Wow Me using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.
