Sending Holiday Cheer - MFT Color Challenge #174

 


Hi all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's color combo: Black Licorice, Sno Cone, Fire Coral, and Jalapeño Popper. 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.



My inspiration for this card was a painting that I loved of a front door decorated for Christmas. Very CAS but exuding Christmas spirit. I hope I've come somewhat close to the original ;-)



To begin, I sponged my background on Sweet Tooth card stock using Fire Coral dye ink and English Brick wall stencil. Once dry, it was adhered directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Next I stamped the door from BB Sittin' Pretty Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored it with Copic markers.



I added Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock--the back one directly to the card front, then popped up the door, along with the front snow drift after stamping the sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes with Black Licorice dye ink. The door decoration is from Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set, was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink on No Line Coloring card stock, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and adhered to the door with foam, along with a baker's twine bow.



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 MFT voucher. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!

I decided on a super sweet Halloween card for today's sketch using Halloween Hoo Stamp Set and Die-namics.




To begin, I sponged the night sky using Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, & Black Soot Distress Inks and after they dried, spattered white craft paint for the starry sky. Next I cut the rectangle element out with A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, adhered the main part directly to a Blue Beyond card stock base and popped the die cut up on foam tape.




Next the images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers and popped up on the card front following the sketch. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and also popped up on foam.

Winter Wishes - Color Throwdown Challenge #661

 


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Amy Rysavy and she has chosen a neutral color palette for us to work with.






These colors reminded me of a snowy January day so I went with it. To begin, on Cement Gray card stock, I traced Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and then stamped Wonderful Woods over and over using Kraft, Cement Gray, and Gravel Gray dye inks. Once that was done I spattered it with diluted white craft ink to resemble snow falling.




When *that* was dry I popped it up on a Chantilly Cream card stock base, then cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and adhered the back layer directly. The front layer was stamped with a sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes Stamp Set, tied around with natural hemp cord, and popped up on foam 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.

It's Time!! MFT's Holiday Snow Globe Card Kit Release!

 


It's time!! It's time!!! MFT's September Card Kit, Holiday Snow Globe, is now available for purchase in the 
MFT Online Boutique!! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details and for more inspiration from the MFT Design Team. 



I love the size of this snow globe and the darling little stamp set. It's going to be so versatile! I chose to highlight it on a Traditional Stitched Tag Die-namics, but there are so many ways it can be used! To begin, I stamped the images on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers. 



Next I cut paper from Holly Jolly Paper Pad with Stitched Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics and from Sweet Tooth card stock and layered them for strength. Then I cut the snow globe circle, adhered the shaker pouch, punched a hole at the top, and added a Black Licorice card stock grommet cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics. Some gingham ribbon and baker's twine dressed that up a bit. 

I used City Block Background for the back of my snow globe and built my scene on it. I added some diamond dust to the shaker pouch, adhered the scene to the back and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base on which I'd adhered more paper from Holly Jolly Paper Pack.




To complete my design I heat embossed the sentiment from the set on Black Licorice card stock cut with Elegant Folded Banner Die-namics and popped it up on foam tape on the tag element. To finish off I added a few accents cut with Fab Foliage Die-namics from Sour Apple card stock.

And there you have it for Holiday Snow Globe, MFT's September Card Kit! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!!

 Now go shop!

Merry & Bright - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #559

 


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.




As I often do when I'm looking for an idea for a card, I just flipped through my product and as soon as I saw Christmas Lights Die-namics I knew I had a winner!




To begin, I cut the strings and socket from Jalapeño Popper card stock and the bulbs from No Line Coloring card stock because I wanted to color them instead of cutting from card stock. Next I cut the words from Gold Sparkle card stock using In Stitches Uppercase and Lowercase Alphabets and In Stitches Numbers.




Using Slimline Starter Die-namics, I cut Black Licorice card stock for the card front and sponged it first with white then gold pigment ink around the edges for just a little interest then adhered it directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

The rest was easy--simply pop all the elements up on the card front with foam tape and finish off with a few gold 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!

Joy to the World - Color Throwdown Challenge #660

 


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Wanda is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous color combo for us based on her equally gorgeous inspiration piece!






I had not had a chance to use the recently released Stitched Tall Triangles STAX Die-namics nor the super fun Keep Me in Stitches Patterned Paper so I got them both out for this card. It went together pretty quickly and once one was done, I think it would be a great design for mass production. 





To begin, I cut the triangles--or in this case, trees--from three colors of patterned paper then I spattered them an some Blue Beyond card stock with diluted white craft paint and set them aside. While they were drying I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and Joy, Peace, & Love Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock. 





The blue background was adhered on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape, then I added the back snow drifts, directly to the background and the "trees" were popped up on foam. Before I adhered the front drift with foam, I heat embossed a partial sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes Stamp Set with gold detail embossing powder then popped it, the Joy die cut letters, and the star on top up on foam 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.

Hello, Bootiful - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #558

 


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.






Well, this was a tricky one--I sure was wishing we had a Cover-Up Die-namics for it, LOL! But, alas, I had to resort to making my own, which I did by using Stitched Square STAX Die-namics.





To begin, I sponged an A2 panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with 
Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot Distress Inks and stenciled the grass using Grassy Edges Stencil and Jalapeño Popper dye ink then spattered diluted white craft paint for the stars. Once dry, I carefully measured and cut out my squares and popped the "frame" up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base. The die cuts were adhered into the openings, directly to the card base for some dimension.





Next I stamped the images from BB Fab-BOO-lous Friends Stamp Set on No Line Coloring card stock, colored them with Copic markers, fussy cut them out, and popped them up both inside the squares and on the frame. The sentiment was heat embossed with white detail embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock cut with Essential Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics and also adhered with foam tape.




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!
