MFT September Release Day!

It's the September release day at MFT! All the new products, including the Class Act stamp set and Die-namics, are available for purchase in the MFT boutique now!

I finally colored up the main character of the Class Act set!:D To make a chalkboard behind the girl I stamped Wood Plank Background onto Kraft CS in Natural ink and cut it out using Rectangle Frames Die-namics twice. They were glued together for thickness. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and white embossed. The pencils were added for an interesting background.
The gingham patterned paper is from a School Daze paper pad (MME), and it was matted with Wild Cherry CS. I added some jute twine, tied a bow, and adhered the chalkboard and girl.

I hope you like this stamp set & Di-namics, AND my card!

Festive Friday Challenge #40

I loved the inspiration photo for the current Festive Friday Challenge (FFC40) so much that I had to play along!

This is one of those cards that are so hard to take good photos! :(

I cut out a window from the card front using Small Madison Arched Window die (Memory Box) (I'm sorry I didn't find a link to it), then adhered a piece of transparent acetate to the back. I cut out three window frames from Grout Gray CS and layered them for thickness.
The Woodland Wreathes stamp set and coordinating dies (Wplus9) were used to decorate the window. The "Merry" was die cut from Insulation Pink CS using a die from the Love and Joy set (Penny Black). I added a little shimmer with a Wink Of Stella pen.

For the inside I sponged some Pink Lemonade ink (MFT) and used Falling Snow stencil (Simon Says) and some modeling paste to make a 'pink' snow falling sky. Then I stamped a sentiment from Very Merry Christmas (Hero Arts) in Soft Granite ink (Hero Arts).

C4C 253 : School is Cool

It's Week 2 of my guesting for the Crazy 4 Challenges. This week we are challenged to make a school themed card/project. Of course I used the Class Act stamp set that will be released next week from MFT for my card today! :D

Actually this school bus is my most favorite image from the set. I can't see this type of school bus here in Japan. I adore yellow school buses because they are cute and cool! So I couldn't help putting a school bus image into the Class Act set when MFT asked me to make a school themed set.

I colored the image with Copics and die cut using a matching die. I added some glossy accents to the windows. The circle window was cut out using Circle STAX 1 & 2 Die-namics.
The patterned papers are from MME School Daze paper pad. The sentiment is from the same paper pad, and I cut it out with a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and added a couple of Steel Grey fishtail banner to make it look like a folded banner.

Head on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog for the challenge details and more inspiration from the DT!

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!
