Heart Art Card Kit Countdown Day 1

January 21, 2019

The MFT January Card Kit Countdown has begun! This month's kit is called Heart Art, and of course, it features the LOVE theme. And also, a new stamp set from Stacey Yacula line, Joyful Heart Bears will be released at the same time with the card kit. These new products will be available for purchase on January 22 at 10:00 am EST.



(NOTE: The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
My card for today uses the Heart Art stamp set and the Double the Love Die-namics from the kit. 
I made my background pattern by stamping the heart arts on Smooth White CS using my MISTI. I used Cotton Candy and Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Inks to add ombre effects on the hearts. I trimmed the stamped card stock and added two cross-stitch lines along the top and the bottom edges using the Basic Stich Lines Die-namics. (I thought the cross-stitch lines looked like 'X's in a row.)

I die cut the "LOVE" out of the panel using the Double the Love Die-namics and adhered the panel and the inside pieces to the Ripe Raspberry card base. I white embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set on Gravel Gray CS, cut it out with a strip die from the Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics, and adhered to the panel with thin foam squares. I added some watermelon jewels here and there to finish off the card.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see the full reveal of the Heart Art Card Kit and the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set & Die-namics. You'll find a list of the DT members participating today's countdown there. Visit each of their blogs for more inspiration!

Thank you for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a card featuring the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set. ;)

Sending Rainbows and Hearts - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 420

January 16, 2019

Hello! Today I'm going to share an inside shadow box card with you that I made inspired by this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC420).


As you see, I used the sketch as my starting point and went for a little liberal way. I made my scene using the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set and the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics. For the background, I stenciled the Sunrise Radiating Rays with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, constellated lots of tiny hearts cut with a die from the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics, and added some white dots with a gel pen.



I used Smooth White CS for my card base and kept the front clean to make the impact of the inside scene big.

MFT Color Challenge #109

January 10, 2019

Hello! Today I'm going to share a card that I made for the MFT Color Challenge 109.


I played with the newly released Hearts Entwined Die-namics and combined it with a cute bear image from the Friends Furever stamp set.

To create my background panel, I stamped a Smooth White panel with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background using Kraft Premium Ink and cut off the top and bottom edges with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die-namics
I die cut the Hearts Entwined three times, one from Smooth White and twice from Kraft CS, and stacked them up, the white one on top. I also die cut the Hearts Entwined from Limelight, Blu Raspberry, and Sno Cone CS and embedded the inside pieces.

I added the bear image and the sentiment panel, then added some sequins to finish off the card.
