The Laundry is About to Get Super Cute–Color Throwdown Challenge #548


























Hi everyone, welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Lynn, who is challenging us to some gorgeous colors based on her yummy inspiration piece.




I was very tempted to do a mermaid card but all those pastels reminded me of baby clothes so that’s what I did. I don’t have anything mint colored so I went with Limelight instead. First I sponged my background with Berrylicious dye ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and stamped the sentiment from LLD Welcome, Baby Stamp Set and adhered that panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock card base. I added Grassy Fields Die-namics cut from Limelight card stock, made clothesline poles from strips of Adhesive backed wood card stock and strung the clothesline and bows cut from Primitive White card stock.


Next I cut LLD Bundle of Baby Clothes from, left to right, Party Patterns and Petite Plaid paper pads and Grapesicle card stock. I popped them up on foam and added some clothespins, also cut from the wood card stock. To finish off I added Puffy Clouds Die-namics ‘cause If I’ve got a sky, I’m gonna have clouds ;-)

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 CTD548 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd548 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, including our amazing June Guest Designer, Alicia Thelin!

Far Out


Hi everyone, Barbara here with a couple of cards using Far Out Doodle Stamps and Doodle Cuts, one with a little action going on!


My first card is pretty Clean and Simple with a play on words using an image as part of the sentiment. I started by creating my galaxy background by sponging ink and splattering with some slightly watered-down white craft paint. Then I stamped the moon image, cut it out with the coordinating Doodle Cuts and colored it with Copic markers. I placed it temporarily where I wanted it and then arranged the stamp around it, heat embossing it in three steps—I can’t bear to cut up stamps so I did some creative masking with a stamp positioner :)
 

Once I had the sentiment done, I adhered the panel to a white card base with foam tape then popped up the moon on foam tape for the finish.


My second card is interactive. The rocket blasts off out of the clouds when one pulls on the pull strip.To create my background, I again splattered some watered-down white craft paint on blue card stock from the Jewel Textured Cardstock Assortment, did some measurements, and cut the slider channel for the rocket. The pull tab mechanism was created and I drew the up arrow on it with a black pen.




































Images from Far Out Doodle Stamps were stamped, cut out with coordinating Doodle Cuts and colored with Copic markers. I added some rocket vapor clouds, the two back ones cut from Gingham Linen Rainbow Petite Prints 12 x 12 and the front from white card stock with the sentiment stamped on it. The above photo shows the rocket at the lowest point…

…and this photo shows it at it’s highest.





































Here’s a little video that shows it in action:




How fun it that??? Once the slider mechanism was done and covered with the white vapor cloud, I popped up the moon and planet on foam tape.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks for stopping by! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Far Out Doodle Stamps and Doodle Cuts.

Stay Awesome–MFT Color Challenge #119























Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Sweet Tooth, Razzle Berry, Steel Gray, and Limelight. 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.





It’s been a while since I played with Painted Poppies Stamp Set and I thought a bright pink poppy would be just the thing for this color challenge. I wanted a subtle background so I dry embossed Sweet Tooth card stock with Captivating Mandala Stencil and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Then I stamped the poppy, a stem, and two leaves with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock and colored them all with Copic markers.


































The sentiment is from Essential Sentiments and was heat embossed on Steel Gray card stock cut with Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips then adhered with foam tape. The poppy elements were also popped up on foam tape on top of the sentiment strip. To finish off, I added a few sequins.

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 Help Make Me My Best Selfie–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #441




































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 love this sketch! The two square elements reminded me of Polaroids so that’s what I went with. I started by stamping the sloth image from BB Picture Perfect Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I wanted the background to show through so I fussy cut it out and adhered it with foam mounting tape to the back of a Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and on which I stamped the sentiment. I then adhered it directly to a Blue Breeze card stock element.


Next I prepared the background by applying a watercolor wash to Ranger Watercolor paper and splattered it with first clear water and then black acrylic ink. I tied around some baker’s twine and popped it up on foam tape to a Sweet Tooth card stock base that had been covered with Black & White Dots paper pack for the finish.

Thank You for Your Hospitality–Color Throwdown Challenge #547


























Hi there, welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she’s challenging us to a bevy of tropical colors base on her fun inspiration piece.




I worked off that tropical vibe for my card today. I started by sponging a background using all four of the challenge colors (inks listed below). Then I stamped up some images from BB Polynesian Paradise with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out.




























The sponged background was adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and the sentiment was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, then the stamped images were adhered, mostly with hot glue and the pineapple was popped up in the middle of the flowers with 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.

To My Beautiful Friend–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #440



































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.




When I first saw this sketch all I could think about was Christmas ornaments! But I did not want to do Christmas ornaments, LOL! So I did some out-of-the-box thinking and came up with butterfly trails instead of the lines. I’m thinking it works :) So, after I planned it out, I covered a Sweet Tooth Card stock card base with Black & White Dots Paper Pack—I’m using this a lot lately—falling in love with it all over again! Then I did a watercolor wash on Some Ranger Watercolor paper, splattered it first with clear water then black and silver acrylic inks, allowing it to dry between each application.




































While it was drying I created my butterflies, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock with Black Licorice bodies and the sentiment from Playful Peacock, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and framed with Silver Sparkle card stock, cut with Fishtail Flag Frames Die-namics. When the background was dry, stamped the trails from Meant to Bee Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink, and popped it up on foam mounting tape on the card front. The butterflies and the sentiment element were also adhered with foam tape for the finish.

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!

Hello There–Color Throwdown Challenge #546






















Hello and welcome to another
Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is our hostess this week and she’s chosen some gorgeous colors based on her quilt inspiration piece.





I’m using Flower Silhouette Stamp Set for the floral images, More Essential Sentiments Stamp Set, and Skinny Strips Die-namics for the sentiment strip. First I heat embossed the floral images with white detail embossing powder then sponged the colors using Tropical Teal, Coral Crush, and Blueberry dye inks. The coral is looking orange in the photo but it’s coral IRL. After they were sponged I splattered a little clear water on each panel for some interest.


Once they were done and dry I popped them up on a Sweet Tooth card stock card front which was in turn popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock card base, staggering their positions. The sentiment was also heat embossed and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some clear drop in several sizes.

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.

I Fish You Were Here - June MFT & Friends Feature


























All of our May Release products are available in the
MFT Online Boutique NOW! Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you so be sure to also stop by the MFT Blog to see who else is participating!





I hadn’t had a chance to play with Fish You Were Here Stamp Set and Die-namics so I thought this was a perfect opportunity to remedy that! I’m also using Under the Sea Die-namics to complete my underwater scene. To begin, I sponged Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, adding some Ray of Light Stencil accents. I stamped the sentiment then adhered the panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.




























Next I cut the Under the Sea Die-namics elements (card stock listed below) and added them to the card front, some directly and some with foam tape. Then I stamped the images on No Line Coloring card stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics colored them with Copic markers, and popped them up in the scene with foam tape.

And that’s it from me for the June
MFT & Friends Feature! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Thank You–MFT June Release Countdown, Day One


























It’s here!! The final day of
MFT June Release Countdown is today! Release is tomorrow, June 4, at 10am Eastern so set your clocks! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details. Today we’re previewing Fairy Good Friends Stamp Set, Fairy Good Friends Die-namics, Sea Life Stamp Set (Free with purchases over $75), and  Thank You Die-namics (Previous Free with $60).




Don’t you love it when you get to use something from your stash? I know I do. Month’s ago I was playing around with some alcohol inks and created this rainbow panel with no real plans for it. I’m so glad I did because it was perfect to use with the Thank You Die-namics for this CAS Thank You card. To begin, I cut Thank You Die-namics from the alcohol inked paper on an angle and added two layers of Sweet Tooth card stock under it for strength. Next I cut A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock and popped it up in the center of a Sweet Tooth card stock card base.


I added some foam to the back of the die cut sentiment, popped it up within the frame, added some matching enamel dots, and was done! I’m loving this! Thinking I need to play with alcohol inks again :)

And that’s it for MFT’s June Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the MFT & Friends Feature at 10am Eastern.
