You Get Better with Age - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 425

February 20, 2019

Hello! Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. (WSC 425)

I used a hot-air balloon and a puppy image from the Up in the Air stamp set for my focal point, and I combined them with the All About You stamp set and the You Trio Die-namics.

I cut a "YOU" out of Smooth White CS and inked it with Limelight Premium Dye Ink to get an ombre look. I added two layers of "YOU" cut from Sour Apple CS under the inked one for a shadow effect. The words "Get Better with Age" were heat embossed on Steel Grey CS and cut out with a banner die from the Hearts in a Row - Horizontal Die-namics.

All the images were stamped on Neenah Solar White CS with Milk Chocolate Hybrid Ink and were colored with Copic Markers.

You're Incredible! - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 424

February 13, 2019

Hello! A new sketch challenge is up on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog and I'd like to share a card with you that was inspired by the sketch.



To create this card, I cut a panel of Smooth White CS with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and stamped the top half of it with the Radiating Halftone Background using Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink. Then I stamped the cityscape image from the You're Super stamp set in Black Licorice and Cement Gray using my MISTI. I masked the top half portion and daubed some Weathered Wood Distress Ink and added the tiny dots with a Copic Marker for the ground.

I die cut out a stitched circle from the center of the panel using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and popped it up with foam tape adding a Steel Grey mat cut with the Circle STAX Set 2 Die-namics.
The super cat and speech bubbles were stamped on Neenah Solar White CS with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and were colored with Copic Markers. I cut them with the matching dies and adhered to the panel with thin foam squares.

Party Penguins - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 423

February 6, 2019

Hello! A new sketch challenge is up on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog (WSC 423) and I'm going to share my take on the sketch with you.


The chubby penguins from the newly released Party Penguins stamp set are perfect for the sketch! I simply stamped them using my MISTI, added some details to their party hats with a white gel pen, and added the rosy cheeks with a Copic Marker (E95). I randomly stamped the tiny stars in various colors and added some sparkling spots with Champagne Stickles for a festive feel.
The sentiment was heat embossed on Persimmon CS and cut out with a die from the Blueprints 31 Die-namics
