Happy Purr-thday - MFT September Birthday Project Challenge

















Our pets are part of the family and deserve to be represented in our birthday greetings. Whether sending birthday wishes from yourself and your furry friends, or to a recipient that is an ardent pet lover, adding a doting dog or caring cat conveys an undeniable friendship. This month, add a cat, a dog, or any mix of the two (and remember, putting party hats on them ups the charm instantly!)



Of course I chose to use cats :) BB Cool Cat Stamp Set and Die-namics, to be exact. I kept it CAS, sponging a background with
MFT dye inks. The images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers then popped up on the card front with foam tape.























The card front was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and the sentiment was stamped on more Sweet Tooth card stock and cut out by hand into a speech bubble for the finish.

And that’s it from me today. Hope to see you playing along with this challenge—it’s a great way to add birthday cards to your stash! Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Boo From Me to You - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #455




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 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 created a spooky scene using SY Spooktacular Friends Stamp set and used Birch Trees as my sketch elements after flipping the sketch. I sponged the sky with Distress Inks after masking off the moon, splattered on some stars, built the scene.



I sponged the hills and grass for dimension and stamped the sentiment on the front layer of grass. The house was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut out before being popped up on foam tape. I backed the birch trees with some Cement Gray card stock for contrast,

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

With Sympathy - Color Throwdown Challenge #561





Hello and welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has some gorgeous colors based on her very cool inspiration piece!



I hadn’t used
MFT’s Floral Focus Stamp Set yet so I got it out for a VERY CAS card. I stamped the whole image on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, then colored it with Copic markers and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.



The sentiment was stamped with more Extreme Black hybrid ink and I finished off with a few Clear Round Drops, Mix 2 for the finish.

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 CTD561 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd561 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!
