MFT Sketchy Flowers Card Kit Release

May 17, 2017

The new MFT Card Kit, Sketchy Flowers is available for purchase in the MFT store now!!


I have one more card to share with you that I made using the Sketchy Flowers Card Kit.

(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
I used the Emboss Resist technique and the Camouflage technique for today's card. I white embossed the leaves from the Sketchy Flowers stamp set onto a panel of watercolor paper, then blended Wild Wisteria and Lavender Fields Premium Dye inks over them. I added some ink spatters with Lavender Fields and Limelight Premium Dye inks using a watercolor brush.

After the inks dried, I cut the bottom edge of the panel with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics, cut out the word "YOU" with the You Trio Die-namics, and stamped "TODAY IS ALL ABOUT" with Gravel Gray Premium Dye ink. I also die cut two more "YOU"s from Lavender Fields CS.
I adhered the inked panel to the card base which was stamped with the Triple Stripe Background, then inlaid the "YOU"s.

MFT May Card Kit Countdown Day 2

May 16, 2017

It's Day 2 of the MFT May Card Kit Countdown. The new Sketchy Flowers Card Kit will be available for purchase TONIGHT at 9:00 pm EDT!

(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
First I dry embossed a Smooth White panel using the Moroccan Lattice Stencil and adhered to the card base with foam tape.

Then I adhered a frame cut out of Kraft CS with the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames Die-namics. I die cut three "YOU"s - two were from Lavender Fields CS and one was from Tiny Check patterned paper -, layered them, and adhered in the frame. I gold embossed the words "MAKE MY LIFE BETTER" from the All About You stamp set and cut it out with a die from the Blueprints 27 Die-namics.

I stamped the flowers with Milk Chocolate, Persimmon, and Fuse Green Premium Dye inks and added the tiny spots with a white pigment marker. I cut them out with the matching dies and adhered along with a Mini Delicate Doily and a Vellum circle panel. Several sequins were added to finish off the card.

MFT May Card Kit Countdown Day 1

May 15, 2017

It's time to begin the countdown to the MFT May Card Kit Release! The new kit is called Sketchy Flowers, and it will be available for purchase on May 16th (tomorrow) at 9:00 pm EDT in the MFT store. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog today and tomorrow for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.


(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
I created my own patterned paper using the Sketchy Flowers stamp set. I stamped the leaves from the set onto a piece of Tropical Teal CS with the Tropical Teal Premium Dye ink, then stamped some dotted and solid circles, which are from the Party Patterns stamp set, with Versa Mark ink. I also added some white spots here and there with a white gel pen. I trimmed it and adhered to a Black Licorice card base.

I stamped and gold embossed the words "MAKE ME HAPPY" from the All About You stamp set in parallel to the bottom edge of the stamped panel. I die cut three "You"s out of Smooth White CS using the You Trio Die-namics, inked one of them with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye ink, glued them together, and adhered to the card base.

I added a little shimmer to the leaves with a Wink of Stella pen.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the Sketchy Flowers Card Kit contains and what the other DT members have come up with for today.
