Magnolia Blossoms, MFT's June Card Kit, Releases Tomorrow!

 


Hello and welcome to Day One Countdown of MFT's June Card Kit, Magnolia Blossoms. Release is tomorrow, June 15th, at 10am Eastern so make a note. And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. 





The Magnolia Blossoms Card Kit includes the following products:
Magnolia Blossoms Clear Stamp Set
Magnolia Blossoms Die-namics
5 Sheets of Watercolor Paper
1 Extreme Black Ink Cube





For this card, I started by stamping the magnolia image with Versamark on Ken Oliver watercolor paper, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, then colored lightly with watercolor pencils. While that was drying, I did a light gray watercolor wash on more watercolor paper, dried it, then applied molding paste through Radiating Rays stencil and spattered with gold acrylic ink. 




Once everything was dry, I matted the card front with Gold Shine and then Prickly Pear card stocks. The sentiment was heat embossed on Translucent Vellum with gold detail embossing powder then wrapped around the card front and secured on the pack. The whole thing was then adhered with foam tape and the colored image popped up on foam for the finish.




And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by--see you back tomorrow for release of MFT's June Card Kit, Magnolia Blossoms.

Two Days Until Magnolia Blossoms, MFT's June Card Kit, is Released!

 



Hello and welcome to Day Two Countdown of MFT's June Card Kit, Magnolia Blossoms. Release is in two days, June 15th, at 10am Eastern so make a note. And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. 





The Magnolia Blossoms Card Kit includes the following products:
Magnolia Blossoms Clear Stamp Set
Magnolia Blossoms Die-namics
5 Sheets of Watercolor Paper
1 Extreme Black Ink Cube




Since Southern Magnolias are white, I went with a really soft gray Peerless watercolor for the petals and golden yellow for the center and a small waterbrush and set it aside to dry. Meanwhile, I sponged Broken China Distress Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and adhered some curled up gold cord off center. 




That panel was matted with Black Licorice card stock and adhered to a Candied Yam card stock base with foam tape. Next I adhered the watercolored image with foam tape and the sentiment, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Fishtail Foundations Die-namics. To finish off, I added a few glitter enamel dots and called it done!




And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by--see you back tomorrow for Day One of MFT's June Card Kit, Magnolia Blossoms.

I Need to Sea You Soon - MFT Color Challenge #167

 


Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Sour Apple, Summer Splash, Caribbean Sea, and Kraft. All of the details about the color 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.



These colors just SCREAMED a beach scene to me and I was powerless to fight it. 



To begin, I created my background by sponging Summer Splash dye ink on Sweet Tooth card stock with Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I cut Beach Scene Builder Die-namics (I love this set--you MUST have it in your stamping arsenal if you're a scene maker!) from Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, then sponged the pieces with Sour Apple, Caribbean Sea, and Kraft dye inks. 




The sentiment was stamped on the sea element with Extreme Black hybrid ink then all elements were assembled, some directly to the card front and some popped up on foam for dimension.




And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Spread Your Wings - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #545

 


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 really love Spread Your Wings Stamp Set and Die-namics and immediately thought of them when I saw this sketch. To begin, I cut the card front with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and sponged the negative and positive pieces with Broken China Distress ink then spattered them with refill ink and black acrylic ink and set them aside to dry.




In the meantime I stamped the butterfly, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored it with Copic markers. Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper was cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and Black Licorice card stock with Skinny Strips Die-namics and adhered them together.



The sentiment was stamped on the card front, which was popped up on fun foam and the cut circle was adhered directly to the card base. The double fishtail strip was popped up on foam tape as was the butterfly and I finished off with glitter enamel dots.



And there you have it! Now it’s YOUR turn to play! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Thanks for Keeping Me Afloat - Color Throwdown #646


 


Hey there, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lisa has a gorgeous color combo for us to play with and we hope you'll join us.



As I looked as these colors, one scene kept popping into my mind: moonlight on the sea. Since I couldn't get it out of my mind, I just gave in and went with it :)



To begin, I stamped the boats from You Keep Me Afloat Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. Next, using Oval Extraordinaire Stencil and using Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, I created the background. The moon and islands were cut with Beach Scene Builder Die-namics and adhered directly.




Slightly watered down white craft paint was spattered for the stars, the sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice dye ink, and the card front was then adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. To finish, the three boats were popped 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 #CTD646 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd646 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!
