MFT August Blueprints Challenge

Hello! This month for the My Favorite Things Creative Construction with Blueprints challenge, we're using blueprints that include multi window frames. I love these types of dies so much because they easily add interest and detail to a card design and provide a place to anchor the focal images.

I decide to create a summer themed card before the summer is completely gone and fall and winter cards take over! ;)

I used the frame die from the Blueprints 29 set to diecut a white frame that I layered over an inked background. I then matted the frame onto a green piece of cardstock, adhered it to a white panel cut from a Blueprints 27 die and then adhered the completed panel to a Grout Gray card base.

I created my scene using images from the Penguins in Paradise stamp set that I stamped and then coloured with Copic markers. I finished the card with a stamped sentiment on a white banner tucker under the frame and added some Nuvo White Blizzard glitter drops.

Hello! Welcome to the newest MFT color challenge. The colors for this week's challenge are soft and subtle and they are perfect for masculine themed cards.

I used the colours to create a simple birthday card using the Happy Birthday to You die and left it pretty simple so the sentiment was the focal point on the card.
I diecut the sentiment from Grout Gray cardstock and adhered a piece of vellum onto the back so I could add the centers of the letters back in. I then layered it over a Berrylicious piece of cardstock so the letters would show through as blue.

I added the finished panel to a Cement Gray card base and diecut some stars from Primitive White cardstock and adhered them around the sentiment. I completed the card by adding some clear sequins onto the stars and filling the centers with mint coloured Stickles.

MFT & Chibi Lights Collaboration

Hello! Today I have a fun card to share that I created with products from My Favorite Things along with Chibi Tronics Chibi Lights!  These lights are a super fun way to add a light up element to a card design with a circuit and a tiny light hidden within the card design.

For my card I created a birthday themed card with candles that glow when you press on the sentiment area of the card.

I stamped and diecut my candles and flames and then I figured out where the center flame would be so I could add a hole to the cardstock for the light to shine through. I cut a square hole and you can kind of see it through the heart in the flame, so I know for next time to try and make sure the hole isn't as obvious. ;)

I stamped the background of the main panel with the Distressed Patterns stamp set and Limelight ink and then I adhered my candles over top. I stamped the sentiment under the candles with black ink, and then I created my Chibi Light circuit on the white cardstock panel underneath.

It's hard to pick up in the photo, but when I press down on the sentiment area of the card, the middle candle flame lights up. Such a fun and unexpected way to add something fun to a card design, Especially a birthday card with candles! ;)

I can't wait to create more light up cards with Chibi Lights!




Hello and welcome to this week's Wednesday sketch challenge. I love having the MFT sketches as a starting point for my cards... it takes all of the guess work out of the design and let's you just create. 

For my card this week, I used the sketch to create a coffee themed card with a two part sentiment... the first part on the top banner area and the second part on the coffee cup.
I diecut the background panel using a scallop edge rectangle die and then I used the Distressed Patterns stamp set to stamp some splatters on the background with Grout Gray ink. I diecut and coloured the cup and adhered it over the stamping.

I diecut a stitched banner from white cardstock and stamped the 'sending' part of the sentiment using the Essential Sentiments stamp set. I completed the card by adding some red diecut hearts around the banner on the top part of the card.
