Sending You All the Love in My Heart–MFT Color Challenge #111



Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Sweet Tooth, Gravel Gray, Red Hot, and Electric Red. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration 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, I *had* to do one more Valentine for Valentine’s DAY, didn’t I? I decided to make a shaker card using Entwined Hearts Die-namics and I started by stamping Romantic Script Background on my Sweet Tooth card stock card base with Gravel Gray dye ink. Next I cut my Sweet Tooth card stock card front with Entwined Hearts Die-namics and also a piece of Red Hot card stock. I removed the white and inserted the red in place and backed it with some clear acetate which held in in place and became my shaker window at the same time.


Then I created the shaker using foam tape, 6mm and 4mm Raspberry sequins—they fulfill the Electric Red requirement—Silver Shimmer seed beads, and some Pewter seed beads that are no longer available. I backed that with more clear acetate. This is the best way I’ve found to add an element to a card base and make sure it’s straight. Otherwise you have to put the upside down card base on top of the back of the shaker element and it’s impossible for me to get it straight! After that was done I heat embossed a sentiment from I Heart Celebrating Stamp set on Heavyweight Translucent Vellum cut with Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics to 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!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

I Bee-lieve in You–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #424


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 Challenge & Inspiration 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 decided to give Meant to Bee Stamp Set and Die-namics a little love for this card so to begin, I created my background by stamping Ranger Watercolor paper with Honeycomb Background and Gravel Gray Hybrid ink in a distressed manner then applied a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and a water brush. When that was dry, I stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black hybrid ink, adhered the Black & White Striped Paper Pack element, and popped it up on the Sweet Tooth card stock base.



Then I stamped the images with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, colored them with Copic markers, added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the bees’ wings for a bit of shimmer, and popped them up with foam tape for the finish!

Be Mine–Color Throwdown Challenge #530


Hi everyone and welcome to a new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she’s challenge up to use a color combo based on her stunning inspiration piece.




I wasn’t going to make any more Valentines but I guess I had to with this inspiration piece ;-) The negative heart reminded me of the Be Mine Banner so I got it out for this card. To begin, I lightly stamped Romantic Script Background on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Cement Gray hybrid ink, then did a watercolor wash with Peerless Watercolors and when it was dry, I stamped the XOXO sentiment from Valentine Wishes with Black Licorice hybrid ink, embossed the stitch line, and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.


While the card front was drying, I cut Be Mine Banner Die-namics from Ripe Raspberry card stock and backed the letters with Black Licorice card stock. I popped the banner up on foam tape and finished off with some hearts cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 5.

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.

I’m Here for You Always–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #423


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 Challenge & Inspiration 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.


OK, I know I say this sometimes but this sketch REALLY stumped me. I had to let go of the circles before I came up with an idea and ended up with a Spring scene. I started by sponging the background with Blue Breeze dye ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, then I stamped the sentiments, from Beautiful Blessings Stamp Set across the center. 


Then I added Stitched Valley Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green card stocks. Next I stamped Modern Trees Stamp Set, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and popped them up on foam tape. I finished off with some Puffy Clouds and a sun cut from Lemon Drop card stock with Beach Scene Builder Die-namics.

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!

Make Today Beautiful–Color Throwdown Challenge #529



Hey, everyone! It’s time for a brand new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she’s challenging us to a warm color palette based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.




I decided the best way I could use these colors was to do an ombre’ sponged panel and cut it—and some Black Licorice card stock, with Bold Beautiful Die-namics. I sponged on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and then inserted the pieces into the black die cut, taped the entire back, and popped it up on foam tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.



Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Hello, Beautiful Stamp Set and popped it up on foam tape as well. To finish off I added some matching enamel dots.

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.
