You Make My Life Magical - Crazy 4 Challenges #476



Hello and welcome to another Crazy 4 Challenges! This week the challenge is all about Harry Potter. Well, I don't know much about Harry so I was more than a little puzzled about what to do. So, as always, I did a little research and found that BB Cute Chemist Stamp Set and Die-namics would work just fine for this.

I started by stamping the image with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored it with Copic markers. I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to his glasses, the beakers, and his shoes and set it aside. For my background, I sponged, top to bottom, Blueberry and Blue Yonder dye inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and then stenciled Sweet Tooth pigment ink through Ray of Light Stencil over the ink. It's hard to see in this photo but it's there! Next I added Stitched Valley Die-namics cut from Gravel Gray card stock and Stitched Snowdrifts Die-namics--minus the stitching--cut from Steel Gray card stock with a heat embossed sentiment from BB Magical Dragons Stamp Set. Foam tape was used for dimension to adhere these elements.





Next I created a couple of Castle Die-namics towers, distressed them up with Gravel Gray dye ink, also popped up on foam tape. Then I popped little Harry up on foam tape and finished off with a moon and stars in the sky. The moon was cut from Lemon Chiffon card stock with Circle STAX Set 2 Die-namics and the stars were cut from Silver Sparkle card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 6

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to see you playing along at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, too!

Simply Spring Collection and Stamps!

 
Hello again, I'm here with some cards using the Simply Spring collection from Doodlebug Design and the new polymer stamps Flower Girl and Oh, Boy!


For my first card, I started by sponging a sky and grass background with dye ink. The images--from both sets--were stamped with Copic friendly ink on Doodlebug smooth white card stock, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut out before being adhered with foam tape. The clouds are from the Simply Spring Mini Icon sheet with some card stock behind for strength, then popped up on foam. The sentiment strip is from Simply Spring Chit Chat and also adhered with foam tape.




For my second card I went CAS. To begin, I added a strip of paper from Simply Spring 6 x 6 patterned paper pad, then added a strip of black card stock. Next I stamped up a bunch of the bee image from Oh, Boy! Stamp Set with Copic friendly ink, colored with Copic markers and cut out. I chose the large die cut sentiment from Simply Spring Chit Chat and planned my "layout" around it. I stamped the sentiment, also from Oh, Boy! Stamp Set. then adhered a white panel with foam tape, then adhered the images, again also with foam tape. I finished off with Beetle Black and Bumblebee Sprinkles.

 


For my third card, I first covered a white card stock card base with paper from Simply Spring 6 x 6 patterned paper in the blue wood grain pattern. Then I cut a white card stock card front, cut it with a circle die, and popped it up on the base with foam tape, then added some strips of patterned paper across the bottom of the circle. Images were stamped with Copic friendly ink, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and arranged in and around the circle. The sentiment was stamped on patterned paper that I cut out after tracing a Chit Chat speech bubble on it. I wanted something besides white for this and it worked out great. To finish off I added some Sprinkles in Lilac, Limeade, and Bubblegum.





And that's it from me. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've gotten some inspiration to use YOUR new Oh, Boy! and Flower Girl stamp sets and Simply Spring collection.

Celebrate, it's Your Day! MFT March Birthday Project Challenge



Rainbows are always the right choice — especially for celebratory occasions like birthdays! While MFT offers a number of options in our selection of stamps and Die-namics that are a literal representation of this iconic imagery, incorporating that cheery color combo can be done in an endless variety of ways. Get creative this month and share your rainbow-inspired birthday cards with us!





Rainbows are so much fun to incorporate into a project. I decided to make my rainbow the focal point but not be overwhelming, so to begin, I used Copic markers to color a rainbow design on some Sweet Tooth card stock then cut Celebrate Die-namics from it. I used a Black Licorice card stock base and added a layer of Sweet Tooth on which I stamped Happy Birthday Background and adhered it to the base.


I dry embossed more Sweet Tooth card stock with Star Celebration Stencil and popped it up on foam tape, then added some Silver Sparkle card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strip, some Birthday Blowout paper pack, and a heat embossed sentiment from Yay for You Stamp Set. I adhered the rainbow colored Celebrate and finished off with some Silver Sparkle stars cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the MFT Challenge Blog to see more inspiration and to play along for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from MFT Stamps!

You Made My Day–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #429


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.


I had a ton of fun making this card! You know I LOVE these Triangle STAX Die-namics so this sketch was right up my alley! I started by cutting the triangles from Ranger Watercolor Paper and watercolored them with Peerless Watercolors and splattered them with gold acrylic ink once dry. Next I heat embossed Bundles of Blossoms Background with gold detail embossing powder on Sweet Tooth card stock, splattered it lightly with black acrylic ink and a small art brush and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.






















When the triangles were dry, I adhered them with foam tape, added You Trio Die-namics, cut from Gold Sparkle card stock and a sentiment from All About You Stamp set, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and adhered it with tape runner.

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!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Best Wishes–Color Throwdown Challenge #535

























Hello everyone and welcome to a brand new
Color Throwdown Challenge! Jodi is our hostess this week and she’s chosen a classic color combo based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.



I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, added a strip of Tiny Checks Paper Pack and a narrow strip of Black Licorice card stock to it, then popped up a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, that I’d dry embossed with Ray of Light Stencil, on foam tape. Next I stamped these images from LLD Sweet Succulents, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored them with Copic markers and popped them up on the card front.


To finish off, I heat embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on foam as well.

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.
