Season’s Greetings! {CTD515}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week, I am hosting, and I have chosen a combo of green, kraft and white! LOVE!

Print

For my card, I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. Then, using the new Trio of Trees set, I created the background by stamping the different trees using Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink, Kraft Premium Dye Ink and Natural Premium Dye Ink. I then cut the tree for the focal panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the Trio of Trees Die-namics, and I then stamped the tree using the same inks I used for the background.

I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. I wrapped Hemp Cord around the card diagonally, and then added the circle panel using Foam Tape. I then added the die-cut tree to the circle panel using Foam Tape. The sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” from Trio of Trees using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

October MFT & Friends!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for the October MFT & Friends Feature! Today, the MFT Design Team, along with some fabulous friends, are revisiting the FABULOUS October MFT Release!

Today I have a card to share with you using the FABULOUS Happy Llamadays and Happy Llamadays Die-namics, along with this month’s Free With $60, the Mountain High Die-namics!

Print

OK, it’s official. I am in LOVE with these llamas! For my card, I began by cutting the llama from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Happy Llamadays Die-namics, and I stamped him (I think he is a boy) using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink with Happy Llamadays. I colored him with Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents to all of the Christmas lights. LOVE him.

For the background, I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and I created the background using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Ink and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink. I spritzed the panel first with water,and then with watered down white acrylic paint. I cut the snow drifts from Smooth White Card Stock first using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and then again using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics.

I arranged the snow drifts and then added the mountains, cut from Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock using the Mountain Tops Die-namics. I popped up the llama using Foam Tape,and the sentiment panel was cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I stamped “Happy Llamadays” using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I popped the sentiment strip up with Foam Tape as well, and then finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones.

October MFT Just Add Color!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for the October MFT Just Add Color Feature! Today, I have colored up the darling images from Sassy Santa to create to add to my stamp set as a stamp guide! I LOVE these little guys SO much!

Print

I cut all three images from No-Line Coloring Card Stock using the Sassy Santa Die-namics. I then stamped them all using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink using Sassy Santa. Once stamped, I then colored them with Copic Markers, which is my most favorite method of coloring!

Grateful to Have You in My Life! {CTD514}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Amy Rohl has challenged us to use the gorgeous combo of orange, brown, rust and yellow! Delish!

Print

For my card, I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I stamped different trees from Modern Trees using Pineapple Premium Dye Ink, Orange Zest Premium Dye Ink, Persimmon Premium Dye Ink and Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Ink.

I wrapped Hemp Cord twice around the main panel and then  cut a circle of Natural Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, popping it up with Foam Tape. I then cut “grateful” four times from Milk Chocolate Prestige Card Stock using the Die-namics from Grateful For You. I adhered them together and then added the die-cut word to the circle panel. I cut a strip of Persimmon Prestige Card Stock and stamped “to have you in my life” from Grateful For You using Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed the sentiment using WOW White Embossing Powder. I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots and a bow of Hemp Cord.

October MFT New Product Launch!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time! The INCREDIBLE October MFT Release is available now, right here in the Brand Spankin’ New section of the MFT Boutique! YAY!

Today I have a card to share with you using the fabulous new Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings, Delightful Deer Die-namics, Snow Flurry Stencil and this month’s Free with $60, the Mountain High Die-namics! LOVE!

Print

I had so much fun creating my card! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and I sponged on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. Then, using the new Snow Flurry Stencil, I sponged on Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink. LOVE.

The snowy ground was cut from Smooth White Card Stock first using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and then again using the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics. I cut the mountains using this month’s Free With $60 Mountain High Die-namics from Grout Gray Prestige Card Stock and tucked them behind the drifts. The trees were cut from Gumdrop Green Card Stock and Field Day Prestige Card Stock using the new Mountain High Die-namics. I arranged them in front of the mountains, and then gave them a light coat of Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter.

I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using the new Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings with Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed the sentiment using WOW White Embossing Powder. The deer and cardinal were cut using the new Delightful Deer Die-namics, and I cut them from Kraft Card Stock, Milk Chocolate Prestige Card Stock, Electric Red Card Stock and Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock. I lightly sponged the deer using Kraft Premium Dye Ink, and the cardinal’s wing using Electric Red Premium Dye Ink.
