cardkitday1_2018sep23

For my card today I used the snowflake die to guide my theme I started by cutting the center with the mid-month Free with $60 die, Mini Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics then I dry embossed with Radiating Rays Stencil. I did it in this order because if I’d embossed first, it would have been flattened when I cut the circle. Then I cut one pouch from Circle Trio Shaker Pouches inserted it, filled it with Silver Shimmer Seed Beads and Aquamarine Seed Beads and closed it up. I popped it up on the Sweet Tooth card stock base with fun foam. Often dry embossing will warp the panel and adhering to fun foam and then the base will flatten it out beautifully.

Next I cut the shaker frame, the snowflake, and the letters from Silver Sparkle card stock and adhered them—the letters popped up on foam tape. Then I heat embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, also popped up on foam, and finished off with some Silver Glitter Sprinkles. This CAS card was fairly quick to make once I had it designed so it would be a good candidate for mass production.

And that’s it from me for Day One of MFT’s September Card Kit, Filled with Joy. Thanks so much for stopping by—see you back tomorrow for Day Two!

I decided to make a Magic Slider Card for this challenge using PI Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set. First I stamped the image with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No-Line Coloring card stock and colored it with Copic markers. Next I stamped the image on Heat Resistant Acetate with StazOn Jet Black ink, using a stamp positioner to line up the two images perfectly.

birthdayproject_2018sep20b

I created a frame with Stitched Rectangle Frames cut from Sweet Celebration Paper Pack and adhered the StazOn stamped image directly to it’s back, then adhered the colored image to with foam tape, lining two images up perfectly. This created a pocket into which I could slide a plain Sweet Tooth card stock panel. This was adhered to the card base directly.

I cut the top of the Sweet Tooth panel with File Folder Edges Die-namics and stamped the sentiment from Interactive Labels Stamp Set. As you pull the panel out, the colored image seems to “emerge”, thus the magic :) To finish off I heat embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, popped up on foam.

And that’s it from me! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has at the
MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog and we hope you’ll play along!

Blessings–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #403

MFTWSC403_2018sep19

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_403

If you saw my post on Day Three of MFT’s September Release you saw I posted a video showing how I do my alcohol ink backgrounds. The background I created ended up being used on this card so I’m posting the video again if you want to see.




For today’s card, I started with a Primitive Cream card stock base. Then I matted some Primitive White card stock with Gold Shine card stock, cut my background to fit the diagonal element of the sketch, and adhered them all together before popping them up on the base with foam tape. I stamped the pumpkins from BB Witch Way Is the Candy? Stamp Set with Kraft Hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out.

MFTWSC403_2018sep19b

I adhered them to the rectangle element (which was popped up on foam) along with some Fab Foliage Die-namics cut from Sour Apple, Tangy Orange, and Jellybean Green card stock using hot glue. To finish, I cut Blessed & Blessings Die-namics from Gold Shine card stock and twice from Primitive White card stock, adhered together in a stack and then above the pumpkins, and was done.

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!

Color Throwdown Challenge #511–With Sympathy

CTD511_2018sep19

Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Amy Rysavy is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous palette for us to work with based on her equally gorgeous inspiration piece.


swatch511


I could only see roses when I first went to work on this card and, happily, I have some Die-namics from MFT that helped me out with that :) I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, stamped the sentiment from Brushstroke Expressions Stamp Set, and cut some Sweet Tooth card stock with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics, and popped it up on the base with foam tape.

CTD511_2018sep19b

Then I cut and assembled Rolled Rose Die-namics and Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics from Peach Bellini, Tickled Pink, and Wild Cherry card stocks and Fab Foliage and Grand Greenery Die-namics from Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green card stocks and started to design my “bouquet”. After I had it arranged like I wanted, I adhered everything down with hot glue. To finish off I added some Sprinkles in the challenge colors and was done!

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 CTD511 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd511 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, along with our super talented Guest Designer, Amy Kolling!

You’re a Star–MFT September Hits & Highlights

hitsandhighlights_2018sep18

We’re giving our team some leeway this month and we’re confident they’re going to blow our minds with creative spins on this month's Hits & Highlights challenge. Today, check out how they’ve reached for the stars creating around the idea *of* stars. Click through to see how they’ve interpreted the idea…you might find colorful galactic scenes, you might find brilliant performers belting it out on a brilliantly lit stage, you might find a simple graphic shaker design featuring one of our star shaker pouches. There are so many possibilities this month and we’re excited for you to see them all!

How about a rainbow of stars? Hard to beat that combo, amirite? So, I started by dry embossing some Sweet Tooth card stock with Star Celebration Stencil and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Then I cut a bunch of stars with Inside & Out Stitched Stars Die-namics from a rainbow selection of card stock: Wild Cherry, Orange Zest, Lemon Drop, Sour Apple, Blu Raspberry, Blue Breeze, Grape Jelly, and Razzle Berry. I arranged them how I wanted them and adhered them with foam tape—some one layer and some two for added dimension.

hitsandhighlights_2018sep18b

Once I had them all adhered, I cut Shining Stars Die-namics from Silver Sparkle card stock and heat embossed the sentiment from Written in the Stars Stamp Set on Heavyweight Vellum. I adhered the vellum strip to the “Stars” die cut and adhered the die cut to the card front with foam tape—thus not needing to add any adhesive to the vellum.

And that’s it from me—love this month’s theme! Be sure to stop by the
MFT Blog to see what some of my team mates have for you today. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
