MFT April Card Kits: Stitched Blooms--Countdown Day One

cardkitday1_2018apr15

Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Stitched Blooms! The kit includes Stitched Blooms Die-namics and lots of colorful card stock—perfect for flower making.

For this card I used some of the warm colors from the kit. I cut a lot of flower parts and leaves, then assembled the flowers. With Blueprints 31 Die-namics, I cut a panel then dry embossed with Radiating Rays Stencil and popped it up on foam on the card base. Then I cut the center element from Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper and popped it up, as well.

Next I arranged and adhered the flowers and leaves and the sentiment which was created by cutting Celebrate Die-namics three times and adhering them in a stack. To finish off I added some Sparkling Crystals from the kit.

And that’s it for Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Stitched Blooms. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the

Let’s Celebrate–MFT April Birthday Project Challenge

birthdayprojectchallenge_2018apr19

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this month’s Birthday Project Challenge! Are you ready? This month we’re challenged to make a shaker card. All of the details about the 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.

I decided to make a balloon shaker element that you can see through to the sentiment inside the card. To do this, I made two Balloon STAX Die-namics “windows” that are mirror images of each other, one in the card base and one in another piece of card stock, separated the two with foam tape, and added shaker fillers to the resulting cavity.

I stamped two sentiments, one on the outside and one on the inside, from Handwritten Happiness and added a sweet little chick from BB Birthday Chicks. To finish off I added some Gold Sparkle card stock stars.

Congrats–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #381

MFTWSC381_2018apr18

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.


MFT_WSC_381

I stuck pretty true to the sketch this week, although I used a die-cut word instead of the sentiment strip. I created a shaker element out of the circle using Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Windows Die-namics, Heat Resistant Acetate, foam mounting tape, Spring Meadow Sequins and Silver Shimmer Seed Beads.

MFTWSC381_2018apr18b

I popped the card front up on foam on the base, that was covered with Tiny Checks Patterned Paper, adhered the Congrats Die-namics, cut from Cornflower Sparkle Card Stock, and finished off with some Sprinkles.

Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana–Color Throwdown Challenge #489

CTD489_2018apr18

Hey everybody, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to some bright colors based on her refreshing inspiration piece.


swatch489

I used a lot of neutrals on this card on purpose because I can only think of red and green as Christmas, LOL! I’m using Llama Love Stamp Set and Die-namics, colored with Copic markers and I added some colored pencil texture to the llama. The background was created by spreading molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil and after it dried sponged Latte dye ink though the stencil.

CTD489_2018apr18b

The colored images were popped up on foam tape for dimension. I cut Fiesta Die-namics three times, layered them together and adhered to the top of the card. I finished the sentiment by heat embossing it on Black Licorice card stock and also popping it up on foam tape.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD489 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd489 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented April Guest Designer, Hannelie Bester!

Yeah, I really do love these triangles ;-) They are just so stinkin’ versatile!! I started by cutting a bunch of them from Ranger Watercolor Paper using two sizes, then watercolored them in the challenge colors. I watered down some gold craft paint and splattered them, then set them aside to dry. Then I cut Congrats Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock and two copies from white scrap paper and adhered them together in a stack.

MFTCPC91_2018apr12b

Next I popped up some Sweet Tooth card stock on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape and began to lay out my triangles. Once I had them arranged to please me, I started adhering them with foam tape. Then I adhered the Congrats sentiment, a few small gold triangles, and finished off with matching Sprinkles.

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 $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
