For today’s card, I used the sweet whimsical butterfly image and filled a piece of Smooth White card stock with it in lots of colors—most of which are included in the kit as cardstock. These butterflies are three-step with the main wing area, the shading, and then the head and body—which I stamped with Black Licorice dye ink. The colors I used for my butterflies are: Blu Raspberry dye ink, Tropical Teal dye ink, Cotton Candy dye ink, Ripe Raspberry dye ink, Field Day dye ink, Spearmint dye ink, Lemon Chiffon dye ink, and Orange Fizz dye ink. After I was done stamping, I added trios of small dots in-between the butterflies as a little something extra.

I cut that out with Blueprints 20 Die-namics and set it aside. Next I stamped the sentiment on Translucent Vellum with Versamark and heat embossed with black detail embossing powder and wrapped it around the stamped panel, securing on the back. To add some depth, I added some clear foam tape under the letters so it’s essentially invisible. I then popped the whole thing up with foam mounting tape on the card base that I had covered with Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack.

And that’s it from me for Day One of
MFT’s February Card Kit Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

Sending Sunshine and Rainbows–C4C #373

C4C373_2017feb18


Hi, everyone! Welcome to another Crazy 4 Challenges! Today is sketch day and Tammy has a fun and classic sketch for us to play with.

I went a little off script but you’re used to that and I think the sketch is pretty obvious nonetheless ;-) I sponged some clouds on Sweet Tooth card stock with Blue Breeze dye ink using a Stitched Cloud Edges Die-namics die cut as a template and popped it up on foam mounting tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I added End of the Rainbow Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and colored with Copic markers. Tip: this is a good way to conserve card stock if you’re a stickler for the ROYGBP rainbow configuration as I am.

Next I added Sunny Skies Die-namics cut from Sunshine card stock and the sentiment from Rainbow Greetings stamped on the cloud from End of the Rainbow Die-namics as the horizontal element. I love how this turned out!

And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C373.

It is with some sadness that I say today is my last project as a
Crazy 4 Challenges design team member. I’ve been on the team since it’s inception and have had so much fun, but there are too many demands on my time and something had to go. I will always look back fondly on these years and on the team. Thanks Crazy 4 Challenges!

Thanks for stopping by today—see you soon!

Thanks–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #320

MFTWSC320_2017feb16


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

As soon as I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do! Abstract Art was made for this sketch—or this sketch was made for Abstract Art, one or the other! I stamped two of the images repeatedly on Sweet Tooth card stock in a rainbow pattern, with, top to bottom, Electric Red dye ink, Orange Zest dye ink, Daffodil dye ink, Sour Apple dye ink, Blue Yonder dye ink, and Grape Jelly dye ink, then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card base with foam mounting tape.

A CAS design like this needs a CAS sentiment so I cut Thanks & Hello Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock three times, adhered them together for strength and dimension, adhered it to the card, and it was done!

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
