Autumn Blessings - MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints

August 30, 2016

For this month's MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints, we are featuring Blueprints Die-namics that include fantastic frames - Blueprints 2, 20, 27, 29.

I chose the Blueprints 27 Die-namics and combined it with the Harvest Mouse stamp set to create my card.

First I cut a Smooth White panel and blended Lemon Chiffon and Peach Bellini Premium Dye inks over it. I added some faux ink spattering using the Distressed Patterns stamp set and Gold pigment ink. After inks dried I stamped the sentiment with Milk Chocolate Premium Dye ink

I stamped the images using the masking technique to fit in the each frame, colored them with Copics, and cut them out with scissors. I die cut three frames from Primitive White CS and glued them together for thickness. I adhered the images for the upper three openings to the back of the frame, then adhered the inked panel. 

I die cut a scalloped rectangle panel from patterned paper and adhered it to a Cranberry Cocktail card base. After I attached the frame, I adhered the mouse image with foam tape and added a button with a hemp bow.

Merry and Bright - MFT & Chibitronics Collaboration

August 25, 2016

It's day 3 of MFT & Chibitronics collaboration. Have you checked Day 1 and Day 2 yet? Each day several of our DT shared their projects using MFT products and Chibi Lights Kit, and all of them were FABULOUS!! So you must check them out, if you haven't yet! 

As you know, I like making interactive cards sooooo much. But, I confess that I procrastinated this assignment until the last minute, because...the word "circuit" scared me. LOL! Everyone who has done it says it's easy. I read the instruction book included in the kit carefully. (I just wish they had an instruction book written in Japanese though. "chibi" is a Japanese word that means very small or little.) But I still thought it wasn't my thing. 

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to make a light-up card for Christmas. I decided to play with the Santa's Elves stamp set, Snowflake Flurry stamp set, and Hand Lettered Holiday stamp set

look! I did it!! Even though it was my first try, I was so ambitious that I put four lights. Now I can proudly say "Making a circuit with Chibi Lights Kit is not so hard!" and I highly recommend you to give it a try! :D

I started my card with creating the top panel. I cut a Smooth White panel using the Blueprints 24 Die-namics and gold embossed the sentiment. Then I white embossed the snowflakes and sponged some pastel colors of inks over them with a sponge dauber. I had to use a screw punch that I dug out from my old tool box to punch the small holes since my 3 mm hole punch didn't reach the center of the blue snowflake. :P

Here are a couple of pics of my circuits.

I worked on a Insulation Pink panel since I didn't want to mess up my card base. The most difficult part for me was making corners with folding copper foil tape. But it doesn't need to be fancy at all, because it will be covered with the top panel! :D

I adhered the circuit panel to the card base, then mounted the top panel with a double layer of foam tape. After I made sure that all the LEDs light, I glued the elf to finish off the card.

I hope my card inspire or encourage you. Make sure to visit the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today!

Love You to Death - MFT WSC295

August 24, 2016

Today I'm sharing a fun interactive card, which I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC295).

Here is this weeks sketch.

When I saw this sketch for the first time, I immediately thought that I would use a character from the Frightful Friends stamp set for the vertical rectangle panel. Then I looked at the sketch again..., the rectangle panel looked like a door or a gate for me. So here is my interpretation. 

I cut my main panel from Gravel Gray CS using the Blueprints 13 Die-namics and stenciled the English Brick Wall with Gravel Gray and Latte Premium Dye inks. After ink dried, I cut out the door using the Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and added a black tab cut with a die from the Slider Channel Builder Die-namics. For the horizontal rectangle element in the sketch I added a fence and a grassy border.
I cut another panel from Smooth White CS, blended Boysenberry and Orange Fizz Premium Dye inks, and spattered some white ink over it. After I adhered the inked panel to a Black Licorice card base, I mounted the main panel with foam tape and adhered the bride of Frankenstein.
I white embossed the sentiment on a Boysenberry banner and added three black dots with Crystal Drops.

Check out the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog for the challenge details and for more inspiration from the DT. I hope you'll play along with us this week!
