Kind - MFT Color Challenge #72

June 22, 2017

It's been a busy week on my blog. It's rare that I post here four days in a row, except the MFT Countdown week! LOL!!

Today I'm sharing a card with you that I made for the MFT Color Challenge #72.


When I saw this color palette, I thought I would go with a nautical theme. But, I ended up with a completely different card from my initial idea. Ha ha!


I kept the design simple. First I stamped the words from the Kind Words stamp set with Blueberry and Cement Gray Premium Dye inks. I created the shelf with Cement Gray CS using the Kitschy Kitchen Die-namics, stamped & die-cut the images from the Kitschy Kitchen stamp set, and put them onto the shelf. That's all. :)

Bling It On! - MFT WSC 338

June 21, 2017

Today I'm sharing a card I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC 338).


As you see, I put two diamonds instead of the heart element in the sketch. I just thought these would construct a "heart" shape. 

I die cut my frame from watercolor paper and watercolored it with Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks. I added some watercolor wash onto the inside panel using the same inks and spattered a little Worn Lipstick ink over it. 
I used Mermaid Lagoon and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks to watercolor my diamonds. I also added a little shimmer to the top layers (outlined ones) with a Wink of Stella pen, it may hard to see in the photo above though. I stamped a sentiment from the Bling It On stamp set with Gravel Gray ink and added a couple of silver sequins.
My card base was stamped with Geometric Grid Background using In the Buff ink.

I made three mini envelopes using the Mini Mail Die-namics - one is from patterned paper and two are from vellum. For the vellum envelopes, I put in polka dot paper and heart confetti that were cut with the dies included in the Mini Mail Die-namics
I created a cloud sky background on a Smooth White panel using the Cloud Stencil and Summer Splash Premium Dye ink and stamped the sentiment with Milk Chocolate ink
I hung the envelopes on the hemp cord, sealed them with die-cut hearts, and added a couple bows to both end of the cord.
