MFT's June Vault Release Is in One Day!

 


Hello and welcome to Countdown Day One of 
MFT's June Vault Release! Release is tomorrow, June 22nd at 10am, Eastern so make a note! Today we're previewing Somebunny Stamp Set, Somebunny Die-namics, Lots of Hugs Stamp Set, and Twice the Hugs Die-namics. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details!




Of course I had to use the Super twins for my card today. I couldn't decide which one to use so to solve that dilemma I used them both?




To begin, I created my background, sponging Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with first Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Once dry, I spread Ranger Micro Glaze then spattered with slightly watered-down white craft ink for the starry sky. Once dry again, it was adhered directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base and Sweet Tooth card stock, cut with A2 Circle STAX Die-namics, was adhered for the moon.



Next I cut a strip of Eiffel Tower card stock, heat embossed the sentiment from You're Super Stamp Set on it and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. The line images were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, the blob stamps with Extreme Black hybrid in and Gravel Gray dye ink, and cut with the coordinating Die-namics. The line image were colored with Copic markers and all adhered to the card front, some directly and the super twins up on foam tap.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by--see you back tomorrow for MFT's June Vault Release!

It was hard to pick what I wanted to work with today but one of my all-time faves, Penguins in Paradise, won out!




I started as I usually do by creating my background. Using Beach Scene Builder Die-namics (seriously, if you don't have this set WHAT are you waiting for???) cut from Ranger Watercolor paper and applied a watercolor wash on the sand, sea, sun, and islands. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black hybrid ink and popped sand and sea up on foam tape on a sky sponged with Broken China Distress ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. The islands, sun and clouds were adhere directly.




Next, the images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. After popping them up on the card front with foam tape, I was finished!!

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by--see you back tomorrow for Day One of MFT's June Vault Release!

If you notice a trend in this lineup you might be right! This whole Vault Release is all about Birdie Brown!! Thirteen Birdie Brown stamp sets and Die-namics will be released this time so you're bound to find many of your old favorites! I'm using BB I Knead You Stamp Set and Die-namics today along with previously released Window Dressing Die-namics to complete my scene. I can tell you I'm am SUPER excited about getting all these sets back to play with!



To begin, I stamped the images, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored them with Copic markers then set them aside to work on the rest of the card. To do that, I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Window Dressing Die-namics, added a sponged background using Limelight and Lazy Day dye inks, and clear acetate "glass" for the window. I sponged the bottom for the floor with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black hybrid ink and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.



The curtains were cut from Petite Gingham Patterned Paper and the rod was cut from Gold Shine card stock and both popped up on foam. The shelf from BB I Knead You fits PERFECTLY with this window as either a shelf or window sill. 
The images were adhered with foam tape, as well for the finish. 

And there you have it from me for Day Four of MFT's June Vault Release Countdown! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Three!

Hey Gullfriend! MFT June Slimline Challenge--Things with Wings

 


Let your imagination take flight! Grab your favorite bugs, bees, butterflies, and birds to create a slimline design featuring things with wings. Try a sprawling horizontal scene or reach for the stars with a vertical stretch of sky-high inspiration.




I loved Seaside Seagulls the first time around and was really bummed when they were retired, so I was SO happy to see them come out of the vault a few months ago!!




To begin, I created my background by cutting Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Slimline Starter Die-namics and using Lazy Day ink on Slimline Cloud Edges Stencil and adhered it to a card base. Next I cut Caribbean Sea Card Stock three times with Slimline Ocean Motion Die-namics--I used only the smaller waves since my card real estate was limited. The back one was adhered directly and the others popped up on foam, the front after having the sentiment stamped on it with Extreme Black hybrid ink. To add a little dimension, I lightly sponged the spikes with Caribbean Sea dye ink.




Next, the images were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and adhered in the scene with foam tape. To finish off, I added a sun, cut from Lemon Drop card stock with A2 Circle STAX, and Petite Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock.




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!

I Wish You Lived Next Door - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #546

 


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.






What an interesting sketch! And a challenge, which is what this is all about! I searched all my sets for just the right things to fit inside those circles and I landed on My Neighborhood Die-namics.




To begin, I created a 5 1/2" square card base then cut a panel 1/4" smaller all around from Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and proceeded to stencil my background. Top to bottom, Mini Cloud Edges Stencil with Lazy Day dye ink, Radiating Rays Stencil with Lemon Drop dye ink, and Drifts & Hills Stencil with Sour Apple dye ink. Once that was done and dried to prevent smudges, I cut the circles out with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and popped it up on the card base with foam tape. The circles were adhered directly to the card base with tape runner.




Next I cut My Neighborhood Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and popped them up inside the circle and heat embossed the sentiment, from Right at Home Stamp Set on Black Licorice card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. To finish off I added a few Petite Cloud Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock. I love this!





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!

To a Fantastic Mom - Color Throwdown Challenge #647

 


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she has chosen a great color combo for us to play with.



I didn't get a chance to use the adorable Rachelle Anne Miller Tweetheart Stamp Set and Die-namics during the recent release so I got them out for today's card. 



To begin, I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX and stamped the sentiment from the set. Next I sponged Micro Cloud Edges Stencil with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and inserted it behind the circle and adhered to the card base. 



Next, I stamped the image 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. The only thing left was to pop the images up in the circle 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. 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 #CTD647 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd647 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
