You're My Shining Star - WSC 290

July 20, 2016

It's time for a new sketch challenge (WSC 290) over at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog!

Here is this weeks sketch.

When I started working on this sketch, I was stuck to an idea that I had to stamp a sentiment on the horizontal banner and put some images on the rectangle panel. But I didn't find a good combination of images and sentiment that fit the sketch... After a while, another idea popped in to my head. "Why do I have to use that banner as a sentiment banner? I can use it as an element to ground an image or something. I can put a sentiment on somewhere else." Then the rest of work went smoothly. :)

I die cut my main panel from After Midnight CS using the Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX Die-namics and white embossed a sentiment from the Count the Stars stamp set. I die cut the "Star" from Wild Cherry CS using the Stars & Wishes Die-namics and matted it with a Smooth White die cut piece cut with the Count the Stars Die-namics. I adhered it to the panel along with a Kraft banner and two striped stars. After I adhered two fishtail flags to a Whip Cream card base, I mounted the main panel with foam tape and added a few silver sequins.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge and Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the fabulous DT! I hope you'll play along with us this week. :)

MFT July Card Kit Release

The new Twice the Wishes Car Kit is available for purchase in the MFT store now!

I'm sharing another card I made using the Twice the Wishes Card Kit for more inspiration for you. This time I combined the kit with a cute singer from the Perfect Harmony stamp set.

For my birthday cake I used striped patterned paper from the kit and Pink Lemonade CS. The candles and flames were die cut from Periwinkle CS and Lemon Drop CS. Those die-cut flames are very small, but QuickStick Pick-up Tool and Fineline Glue Bottle always help me a lot when I need to work with very small die-cut pieces! I white embossed the words, "BE HAPPY IT'S YOUR DAY", on the top layer of cake before I assembled the interactive cake. It may hardly see in the photos above, but I decorated the cake with White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

The sentiment "Happy Birthday toooo Yoooou" is from the Perfect Harmony stamp set and it was white embossed on an Orange Fizz banner cut with the Dimensional Banners Die-namics.

Be sure to stop by the MFT blog for more information about the kit and for more inspiration from the other DT members!

MFT July Card Kit Countdown Day 2

July 19, 2016

It's Day 2 of the MFT July Card Kit Countdown. The new card kit, Twice the Wishes will be available for purchase TONIGHT at 10:00 pm EDT.

Today we're featuring "Out of the Box" looks – cards that combine the products included in the kit with previously released MFT products.

(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
For my card today, I paired the Interactive Birthday Cake with the pigs from the Hog Heaven stamp set. The cake was made with Milk Chocolate CS and gingham patterned paper from the Tiny Check Paper Pack, and it was decorated with some die-cut flowers and leaves. To create the cloudy sky, I made a mask using the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics and sponged some Berrylicious Premium Dye ink using a sponge dauber.

Be sure to visit the MFT blog to see the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the other DT members participating today's Countdown.

Thank you for stopping by. I will be back at 10 pm EDT to share another card I made using the Twice the Wishes Card Kit. ;)
