Thanks for All You Do–MFT Color Challenge #94

MFTCPC94_2018may24


Hi, all, I'm back with the latest
MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Sno Cone, Summer Splash, Peach Bellini, and Lemon Chiffon. All of the details about the color 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.

Love these pastel colors!! I thought they would look great with a bit of black as an accent so I decided to use Birthday Speech Bubble Die-namics to cut the colors out and stamped on them with black.

First I did a watercolor wash for the Sno Cone element on Ranger Watercolor Paper and splattered some black watercolor from my Kuretake Gansai watercolors. While that was drying, I cut the speech bubbles and stamped the sentiments, top to bottom, from Boss Babe Stamp Set, a partial from BB Cool Cat, and another partial from LLD Perk Up. The rest of the sentiment is from Gift Card Greetings Stamp Set and was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock.

Then I arranged the speech bubbles, popped them up on foam tape, and popped up the black sentiment strip as well. I finished off with some Sprinkles in Bumblebee, Tangerine, and Swimming Pool.

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!

You are Mermazing–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #386

MFTWSC386_2018may23

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_386

I decided to get out my BB Mermazing Stamp Set and Die-namics since it’s been a while. First I did a watercolor background after heat embossing Whimsical Waves Background on Ranger Watercolor Paper and set it aside to dry. For the card front I dry embossed Radiating Rays Stencil on some Sweet Tooth card stock after cutting it with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. Next I stamped the image from Mermazing with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut her out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored her with Copic markers.

MFTWSC386_2018may23b

I stamped some fish on the background, popped the card front up on the background with foam tape and adhered it to the card base. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips and popped up on foam as was the colored image. I finished off with some 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm Clear Round Drops.

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!

Thank You for Going Above & Beyond–Color Throwdown Challenge #494

CTD494_2018may23


Hello there and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Amy Rohl and she is challenging us with this classis color combo.


swatch494


So, with Memorial Day coming up soon in the US, I got all patriotic with this card. I started by doing a watercolor wash background and after it dried ran it through my die cutting machine with Stitched Star Grid Die-namics. I then adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added the stars, cut from red glitter paper.

CTD494_2018may23b

Next I cut New York Skyline Die-namics from Ranger Watercolor paper, did a gray watercolor wash on it and then heat embossed the sentiment from Gift Card Greetings with silver embossing powder at the bottom. I added that to the bottom, tied around some red, white, and blue baker’s twine 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 CTD494 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd494 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!

MFT_PaintedPrints_Blog

For this card I used both color values of flowers—pink and coral—along with both greens for the leaves. I stamped up a bunch of flowers and leaves and created a swag down the left side of my card front.

The sentiment was stamped with Steel Gray Hybrid Ink before it was popped up on the base with foam tape or the flowers added. I finished off with some matching Sprinkles and it was done!
