MFT March Release Countdown

February 28, 2015

I'm sorry for being quiet for a long time. But I'm finally back with an exciting post! :D

The MFT March Release Countdown began yesterday! Today I'm introducing you two new stamp sets and Die-namics from Birdie Brown line, You Make My Tail Wag and I Knead You. I'm SO happy with these sets, and I hope you will love them if you are crazy about cute pets.;)

My first card for today features the You Make My Tail Wag stamp set and Die-namics.

I chose my most favorite dog image in the set for today. Hehe! I stamped him and a hydrant onto the matching die-cuts with Chocolate Brown Hybrid ink and colored them with Copics.

To create their background I stenciled Small Brick Wall with Grout Gray Dye ink and Natural Dye ink. I cut out the panel with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics.

The white panel was stamped the Swiss Dots Background with Pure Plum Hybrid ink, and it was matted with Tropical Teal CS.
The sentiment panel is Pure Plum. I cut out a bone three times using the Pet Accents Die-namics, which is also released this month, and layered them. I slightly sponged its edges with Grout Gray Dye ink and added a tiny twine bow.

Next card uses the I Knead You stamp set and Die-namics, along with the new Window Die-namics.

First I cut out a Black Licorice panel using the Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and cut out a window from it using the Window Die-namics. I die-cut the window frame three times from Primitive Cream CS and layered them up on the black panel. I adhered a sheet of acetate to the back to get a realistic window look.

To create a sky that reflects his (her?) grumpy feeling I blended several colors of inks using an ink blending tool. (The colors I used are listed at the bottom of this post.)

I stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark ink and gold embossed.

For the inside I stamped another kitty and a shelf and colored them with Copics.

Somebunny Says Thank You!

February 19, 2015

Let's have a chat with cute bunnies! :D
I combined the Somebunny stamp set with the Friend Request set and Smart Phone Die-namics to create a fun skinny card.

The card size is 5-1/2" x 3-3/4".
For the background I stamped the Tiny Hearts Background in orange/yellow shade. (The ink colors I used are listed below.) After it dried I daubed some Coral Crush Hybrid ink to the bottom and Lemon Drop Dye ink to the top.

The bunnies were stamped onto matching die-cuts with Chocolate Brown Hybrid ink and were colored with Copics. The speech bubbles were die cut from Tangy Orange CS and Pure Plum CS using the Smart Phone Die-namics. "Did you hear?" is from the Friends Request set, and "SOMEBUNNY" and  "Says Thank You" are from the Somebunny set.

Thank you for stopping by.
