You Always Take Such Good Care of Me - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #540

 


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 a fun sketch, right!! It only took me a few minutes to settle on Band-Aids Die-namics to supply most of the horizontal elements for the card and the sentiment strip provided the final one.



To begin, I sponged the background using Broken China and Pumice Stone Distress Inks on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.

Next the image from BB Call the Shots stamp set was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. 



I cut three copies of Band-Aids Die-namics from Strip Splash Patterned Paper, and cut the hearts from Amarena Cherry card stock then adhered them with foam tape to the card front. The sentiment from the set was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Fishtail Foundations Die-namics and likewise adhered with foam. The image was popped up on foam and I finished off with a few 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!

Hi, Champ - Color Throwdown Challenge #641

 


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Our hostess this week is Amy Rysavy and she has a lovely color combo for us to work with.





I'm using the recently released PI Champ Stamp Set and Die-namics for this card. 




The background was created by sponging Broken China Distress Ink for the top and using Basket Weave Stencil and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink for the bottom--I thought the basket weave design sort of suggested parquet flooring. After masking off the bottom, the top was spattered with clean water, then black and gold acrylic inks, drying well between applications.

The image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers.




The image was popped up on foam tape on top of Party Plaid and Stripe Splash patterned papers, cut with Fishtail Foundations Die-namics, finishing off with the heat embossed sentiment on Black Licorice card stock.

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 #CTD641 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd641 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!

Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT's May Release Countdown! Release is in one day, May 4th, at 10am Eastern so set your clocks! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details! Today we're previewing Right at Home Stamp Set, My Neighborhood Die-namics, PI Champ Stamp Set, PI Champ Die-namics, PI Goal Getter Stamp Set, and PI Goal Getter Die-namics.




I just had to use this winner and thought a "medal" to showcase the sentiment would be a cute twist. To begin, the image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, and colored with Copic markers. 



The "medal" was created by cutting Linked Octagon Frames Die-namics from Gold Shine card stock. The sentiment and image from Mother's Day Bouquet Stamp Set was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Tag Builder Blueprints Die-namics then adhered with foam tape. 

To create the background, I stamped Scattered Triangles Background on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and sponged with Lazy Day dye ink. The "floor" was sponged with Cement Gray dye ink and the sentiment stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink. 



The "medal' was popped up on the background with foam tape with ribbon threaded through one link, wrapped around to the back. The card front was then matted with Gold Shine card stock and popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base, covered with Poppin' Polka Dots Patterned Paper.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the May MFT and Friends Feature!

Halfway to the Big Day--Three Days Until MFT's May Release!

 


Hello and welcome to Day Three of MFT's May Release Countdown! Release is in three days, May 4th, at 10am Eastern so make a note! And be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for ALL the details! Today we're previewing RAM Million Dollar Friends Stamp Set, RAM Million Dollar Friends Die-namics, RAM Cuteness Overload Stamp Set, RAM Cuteness Overload Die-namics, and Scattered Triangles Background Stamp.






How sweet is this bear and bunny image from RAM Cuteness Overload Stamp Set?? I just love that pensive look on the bear's face!




To begin, I created my background by sponging Sour Apple dye ink for the grass and Broken China Distress ink for the sky on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. The sprigs of grass were stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers to blend with the sponging. Next I spattered with clean water and black acrylic ink for interest. When that was all dry, the sentiment was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink, and after tying around some baker's twine, the card front was popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.





The image was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out. To finish, the image was popped up on thin foam tape for a bit of dimension.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT's May Release!
