Coffee Break - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 363

December 13, 2017

Today I'm sharing a card with you that I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

As I liked the simpleness on this weeks sketch, I decided to keep my card simple.

First I prepared the rectangle panel and three coffee cup images and put them onto the card front temporarily. Then I stamped the steam and hearts directly onto the card base. I adhered the rectangle panel and cups with foam tape, and added the sentiment panel. 
After I rounded the bottom corners with a corner chomper, it looked too clean. So I decided to add the stitching lines along the edges with a grey gel pen.

Hexagon Patterns - MFT Release Replay

December 12, 2017

It's time for MFT Release Replay DT Challenge. Today the MFT DT is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present!

When I looked at the Honeycomb Background stamp closely, I thought of a hexagonal quilt pattern called Grandmother's Flower Garden. I searched for hexagon quilt patterns on Pinterest and found some inspirational images.

For my first card I created a floral background for the cute bees from the Meant to Bee stamp set.

I heat embossed the honeycomb pattern onto a piece of Smooth White CS and cut it with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics. Then I colored in some of the cells with Copic Markers to create a pattern.
I cut out the sentiment window using the Stitched Oval Word Windows Die-namics, applied the sentiment panel from the backside, and adhered the panel to the Pineapple panel with foam tape. I stamped the trails with Steel Grey ink and adhered the bees with foam tape. I added Glossy Accents to the wings to finish off the card.

I created another pattern for my second card, inspired by a snowflake pattern I saw on Pinterest.

I used the You Trio Die-namics and the All About You stamp set for my sentiment.

There are so many possibilities on this fun background stamp! You can get a completely different look by only changing the colors. Actually I tried a few more patterns, I haven't made them into a card though. :)
