Thanks For Chicken In–MFT February Release Replay

releasereplay_2016feb9

Hi, everyone, welcome to MFT’s February Release Replay! This is where the team takes a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection.

I didn’t get to play with Farm-tastic or Farm-tastic Die-namics during Release Countdown so I’m indulging myself now :) I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added a strip of the new County Fair Plaid Paper Pack down the right side (I love this paper—it just might be my favorite one yet!) Then I did a watercolor wash on some Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and stamped Mini Hexagon Background (this is so versatile—goes from a tiled kitchen floor to a chicken wire fence in nothing flat!) with Black Licorice hybrid ink. I added the posts from Farm Fence Die-namics to my fence and added it to the card base like it’s in the distance--my chicks are free range, you see ;-) Then I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics (LOVE these!! That outside stitch just finishes the edge off so nicely!), tied around some baker’s twine, and popped it up on foam mounting tape.

My fowl were cut from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb with Farm-tastic Die-namics, the coordinating images from Farm-tastic stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored with Copic markers. They were added to the card with foam on top of the sentiment, which was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock, cut with Blueprints 25 Die-namics, and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Have a Farm-tastic Day

countdownday5b_2016jan29

Hi there! Today I’m sharing another card using a couple of MFT February Release products: Farm-tastic, Farm-tastic Die-namics, Farm Fence Die-namics, and County Fair Plaid Paper Pack, along with the previously released Grassy Fields Die-namics, Puffy Clouds Die-namics, and Sunny Skies Die-namics. They all work together to create a super sweet scene, don’t you think?

I started with a
Blue Breeze card stock base. I wanted to make this “kinda” interactive so I trimmed off a section of the card front and ran the scene on the inside so when the card was closed the scene was uninterrupted. Like this:

When it’s open, it looks like this:

The images were stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, as was the sentiment, and colored with Copic markers. The sun was cut from Sunshine card stock, the clouds from Sweet Tooth card stock, and the fence from Kraft card stock.

And that’s it! Thank so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Dream Big–Crazy 4 Challenges #322

C4C322_2016feb6

Hi there and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! Peggy is our hostess this month and here’s this week’s challenge: “National Kite Flying Day is coming up on the 8th. The challenge today is to use a kite or a
kite shape on your card.”

I pulled out MFT’s BB Adorable Elephants and BB Adorable Elephants Die-namics since it has a kite :) I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I decided on my colors and stamped up some patterned paper using more Sweet Tooth card stock and Plaid Background Builder and added a strip across the bottom--ink colors are in the supply list below. Next I trimmed down some Ranger Watercolor paper, did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.

Then I cut more watercolor paper with BB Adorable Elephants Die-namics, stamped the images from BB Adorable Elephants with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored them with Zig Clean Color Brush markers before popping them up on foam. I added some Puffy Clouds Die-namics and the sentiment, stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics.

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 C4C322.

Thanks for stopping by today—see you soon!
