MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 415

December 12, 2018

Hello! Today I'm going to share a card that I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

For the vertical rectangle element in the sketch, I masked and stenciled a stripes pattern using the Envelope Buddy Stencil and Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass and Broken China). I added some faux spattering using the Distressed Patterns stamp set and Gravel Gray Premium Dye Ink.

I used a flower image from the newly released Brilliant Blooms stamp set for the circle element. I heat embossed it on watercolor paper with white embossing powder, watercolored and cut out with the matching die. I adhered it with thin foam squares adding the leaves cut with the Grand Greenery Die-namics.
The sentiment is from the From the Heart stamp set. It was heat embossed on Steel Grey CS and cut out with a strip die from the Hearts in a Row - Vertical Die-namics. I added several sequins to finish off the card.

Head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. I hope you'll play along with us!

Friends at First Sip - Dec 2018 MFT & Friends

It's time to shop! The MFT December Release is live and available for purchase now!

I'd like to share another card featuring the new Friends at First Sip stamp set & Die-namics. I made a scene that two girls and a dog are in front of a coffee shop.

First I cut a panel out of Summer Splash CS with the second large die from the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and blended some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink over the top half of the panel. I added two Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames cut from Whip Cream CS and inlaid Gravel Gray pieces to make windows. For the ground panel, I stenciled the English Brick Wall on Grout Gray CS with Tea Dye and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks. I die cut the awning from Whip Cream CS using the new Boutique Die-namics and colored with a Copic Marker. I slightly bend it and applied foam tape to only the top portion.

I stamped the images on Neenah Solar White CS with Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink, colored with Copic Markers, and cut out with the matching dies. I adhered them to the scene panel with foam tape. 
I added a panel cut out of Hot Fudge CS using the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics, then adhered it to a Whip Cream card base. I stamped the sentiment on Grout Gray CS, cut it out with a die from the Fishtail Flag Frames Die-namics, and added it to the focal panel.

Vellum Shaker Card - MFT December Release Countdown Day 1

December 11, 2018

It's the final day of the MFT December Release Countdown. All the new products that we have been showcasing this past five days will be available for purchase tomorrow at 10:00 am EST!

Today I'm sharing a shaker card with you that I made using the Brilliant Blooms stamp set, the Beautiful Die-namics, and the Hello, Beautiful stamp set.

To create this card, I blended Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, and Festive Berries Distress Inks on a panel of Ranger Watercolor Paper and adhered it to a Smooth White card base. I stamped and heat embossed the flowers from the Brilliant Blooms stamp set on Heavyweight Translucent Vellum, then cut it with the largest die from the A2 Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics.
I die cut a Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame out of foam sheet and adhered it to the inked panel. I put some Crystal Clear Confetti, sealed with the vellum panel, and added another frame cut out of Smooth White CS.

The word "beautiful" was cut out from Persimmon CS, and I added a Smooth White mat underneath it. I heat embossed the words "Inside & Out," which is from the Hello, Beautiful stamp set, onto Persimmon CS and cut it out with a die from the new Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namcis. I adhered them to the vellum panel with Scor-Tape.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see all the products revealed today and for more inspiration from the DT. Leave a comment there for your chance to win a prize.
