Peek-a-Boo Shaker Card - MFT Birthday Project Challenge

June 21, 2019

Hello everyone! It's time for a new Birthday Project Challenge over at the MFT blog. This month's theme is to make a card that features a peek-a-boo element.

I created a peek-a-boo shaker card using the Friends with Fins stamp set and a Circle Shaker Pouch. The Circle Shaker Pouches make it pretty easy creating a peek-a-boo shaker card!

I stamped the front of a Smooth White card with the Watercolor Stripes Background using Blue Breeze Premium Dye Ink, then made a circle opening using the Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics. I cut an Ocean View Porthole from Whip Cream CS and added it to the opening as a frame. I applied a Circle Shaker Pouch from the back, put in some sequins, and covered with a piece of acetate cut with a circle die. I also added a circle frame to the back of the shaker so the adhesives won't be seen. (See the photo below.)


I die cut the Happy Birthday Script twice, from Whip Cream and Persimmon CS, and added them to the front making a shadow effect. The stars were cut with a die from the Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics.

For the inside, I made an underwater scene by ink blending (Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks) and stenciling using the Card-Sized Confetti Stencil Set. The ground elements were cut with the Under the Sea Die-namics. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Bundle of Balloons stamp set and added the shark from the Friends with Fins stamp set.

Butterfly Kisses - MFT Color Challenge 119

June 14, 2019

Hello! Today I'm sharing a card that I made for MFT Color Challenge 119


As I said before, I'm not so good at color challenges. I usually don't think of any other than flowers for color challenges. LOL! But, I wanted to do something different this time because I had made a flower themed card for yesterday. So I went to Pinterest to search for some inspiration and saw a handmade card featuring a butterfly. (I'm sorry that I didn't save it and can't find it now...) It reminded me of the Butterfly Kisses stamp set, and I decided to play with it.

I used Smooth White CS instead of Sweet Tooth as I don't have it even though I've been being a DT member for years. :P 
I made my background with the Card-Sized Confetti Stencil and Limelight Premium Dye Ink, and I framed it with a Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame cut from Limelight CS. I added a Razzle Berry panel under it and adhered to a card base.


I expanded the girl's wings by layering a butterfly cut with the Flutter of Butterflies - Lace Die-namics. I lightly inked the edges of the butterfly with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink and heat embossed the whole die-cut with clear embossing powder for a shiny look. 


The sentiment was heat embossed on Steel Grey CS, cut out with the Fishtail Flag Trio Die-namics, and added to the bottom of the frame with foam tape.

Pastel Tropical Flowers - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 441

June 13, 2019

Hello!
Today I'm sharing a floral card with you that I made for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC441).


I didn't play with the Tropical Flowers stamp set during the June Release Countdown week because I wasn't sure what colors should be used for tropical flowers. After seeing the gorgeous projects that other DT members created, I loved that they looked so pretty in pastel colors!
I stamped the flowers and leaves on Smooth White CS (The inks used are listed at the bottom of this blog post.), cut them out with the matching dies, and assembled on a Summer Splash panel cut with the Mini Scallop Square STAX Die-namics adding a Linked Chain Circle Frame. I also added a Whip Cream panel under the focal panel to follow the sketch.
I stamped only the bottom half of a Smooth White card base with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background using Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink, then stamped a sentiment from the Greetings & Salutations stamp set. I drew two lines on both sides of the sentiment to highlight the sentiment a little more.
I adhered the panel to the card base and added a hemp bow and some Jewel Drops to finish off the card.
