In the Background–MFT Triangle Screen Die-namics + a Video

triangleleaves_2014sep22


Hi, everyone, I have another In the Background card for you today, complete with a video.

Today’s video will show you how I stamped and put this card together using MFT’s Triangle Screen Die-namics die. You can see the video by clicking on the button below, or HERE on YouTube, and I hope you’ll subscribe to my YouTube channel while you’re at it ;-)



I’m going to give you the ‘in a nut shell” version here on the blog, but you’ll find more detail in the video. My card base was made from Primitive Cream Card Stock, and the Triangle Screen Die-namics die cut and sentiment strip were, as well. I stamped more Primitive Cream Card Stock with Tangy Orange Ink and Burlap Background, Safety Orange Ink and Wood Plank Background, and Jellybean Green Ink with Fine Check Background. I randomly adhered them to triangle openings, along with Safety Orange Card Stock, Tangy Orange Card Stock, and Jellybean Green Card Stock.

The sentiment is from LJD Out On a Limb, stamped with Chocolate Brown Ink, and the leaves were cut with Falling Leaves Die-namics. Their edges were sponged with Kraft Ink, tied together with Hemp cord, and adhered to the card front.

Another sentiment from LJD Out On a Limb was stamped on the inside with Chocolate Brown Ink.

Our Destiny–SSSC #237

SSSC237_2014sep21


Hey, there, folks! It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Today’s sketch is a little different but I like it! I did flip it for my card, as you can see.


SSSC237
I started with a Kraft Card Stock base, then embossed a piece of Sweet Tooth Card Stock with Scattered Bars Stencil, layered it with Steel Gray Card Stock, and popped it up on the base on foam. Then, from Kraft Card Stock that was stamped with Wood Plank Background and Steel Gray ink, I cut the shafts of the arrows from LLD Accent It – Feathers and Arrows. The arrow heads were cut from silver glitter card stock and the feathers from, top to bottom, Sour Apple card Stock, Blu Raspberry Card Stock, and Orange Fizz Card stock. After they were adhered to the card front, I added the sentiment, also popped up on foam. It is from DC Life’s Direction and was stamped on Steel Gray Card Stock that was cut with Designer Labels 3 STAX Die-namics with Versamark and heat embossed with Zing Brown Sugar embossing powder. To finish off I added some matching enamel dots.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.
