I'm Kinda Obsessed With You! {CC134}

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! It's time for a new MFT Color Challenge!

This week we have a FAB color combo of Summer Splash, Tropical Teal, Gravel Gray and Steel Grey! LOVE!


I LOVE this color combo! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and using the Love Is In The Air Stencil, I sponged on Summer Splash, Tropical Teal and Gravel Gray Premium Dye Inks.

I cut a panel of Steel Grey Prestige Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Circle STAX. I used the Free With $60 Lots of Love Die-namics to cut Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock and Tropical Teal Prestige Card Stock three times each and then layered them together. I added the die-cut word to the circle panel, and then cut a sentiment panel from Smooth White using the Skinny Strips Die-namics. I stamped "I'M KINDA OBSESSED WITH YOU", from Smitten With You, using Steel Gray Premium Dye Ink.

January MFT Vault Release!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time! The MFT Vault Release is available now in the MFT Boutique! YAY!

Today I have a card to share with you using the fab Undeniable Chemistry set! SO fun!


I had a super fun time creating this card! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I stamped several images from Undeniable Chemistry using Versamark and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I used an assortment of Distress Oxide Inks and sponged them over the stamped images. I then spritzed the panel with water and watched the magic happen.

I stamped the sentiment, "Our Chemistry is Undeniable" onto a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using Versamark, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down and layered it with a piece of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I added the sentiment panel to the card with foam tape, and then finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

January MFT Vault!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

The MFT Vault is opening and there is SO MUCH GOODNESS coming your way!! The Vault Release is tomorrow, January 21st at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!

I had SO much fun creating my card today using Green Pastures, Green Pastures Die-namics, Farm Fence Die-namics and Barn Die-namics!

I began with the background, and cut a panel of Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I then added the grass, cut from Green Room Prestige Card Stock using the Grassy Fields Die-namics. I then created the barn using the Barn Die-namics cut from Red Hot Card Stock, Smooth White Card Stock, Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and Pineapple Prestige Card Stock. I added Kraft Premium Dye Ink to the hay for some interest. 

The fence was cut using the Farm Fence Die-namics from Smooth White Card Stock, and I cut the clouds from the same card stock using the Puffy Clouds Die-namics. The sun was cut from Pineapple Prestige Card Stock first using the Circle STAX 1 Die-namics, and then using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. This sweet little farmer girl was cut from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Green Pastures Die-namics, and stamped her with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Green Pastures. I colored her with Copic Markers and then added shading using Polychromos Colored Pencils. I finished by stamping the sentiment, "HOWDY!", from Green Pastures, onto a cloud using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

January MFT Vault!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

The MFT Vault is opening, and WOW, so much goodness will be released!! The Vault Release will take place on Tuesday, January 21st at 10AM in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the DARLING Pure Innocence Love Is in the Air and Love Is in the Air Die-namics! LOVE HER!


For my card, I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I placed the Circle Extraordinaire Stencil on top of the panel and, using Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, added the ink to the panel. 

I cut this little cutie from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Love Is in the Air Die-namics, and stamped her with Love Is in the Air using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I colored her with Copic Markers and then added more shading with my Polychromos Colored Pencils. I added her to the circle, popping her up with foam tape.

The hearts were cut at the same time I cut the PI, and I stamped them using Red Hot Premium Dye Ink. I popped them up onto the card using foam tape, and I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment, "Love Is in the Air", using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

Cheers!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

It's time for the January MFT Birthday Challenge! This month, it's all about cheers! Yes, we are creating Birthday cards that feature the word "Cheers"! Now, that is my kind of Birthday celebration!


I LOVE the sweet ALM Martinis On Me! I cut her from No Line Coloring Card Stock using the Martinis On Me Die-namics, and stamped her with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Martinis On Me. I colored her with Copic Markers and then added detail with Polychromos Colored Pencils (I am in the middle of Kathy Rac's Coloring Challenge Road Trip- she is INCREDIBLE!). 

The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I used the same Die-namics to cut a smaller panel of Silver Sparkle Card Stock, which I layered on top of the Smooth White panel. I added a circle of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and I popped up the ALM with foam tape. The sentiment, "Cheers", was cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock and stamped with Versamark. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and I added a tiny strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

You Have The Biggest Heart! {CTD576}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week Lisa has challenged us to the fabulous combo of navy, teal and mustard! I.LOVE.


I LOVE the new You Have The Biggest Heart set from MFT! I began with a panel of Watercolor Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I stamped the stamp using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.

I used Distress Inks to watercolor the three colors from the challenge onto the watercolor panel. The embossed image resists the ink, and I love the look it creates. I spritzed a bit of the Distress Inks around the card and then matted the panel with a panel of Blu Raspberry Card Stock.


I love this week's inspiration pic!

I had SO MUCH FUN creating this card! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics. I used the Wave Maker Stencil and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink to create the waves. I LOVE this stencil.

The sun was cut from Pineapple Prestige Card Stock using the Sunny Skies Die-namics, and the cloud was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Once Upon a Rainbow Die-namics.

I used the Message in a Bottle Die-namics to cut out the bottle, and I added a Message in a Bottle Shaker Pouch. I filled the pouch with sequins and I added a message cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Little Notes Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped "You're The One" from Little Love Notes using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I cut the crab and stars from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Beach Buds Die-namics, and I stamped them with Beach Buds using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.
