MFT May Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown! Today's release includes the newest Pure Innocence girl who is, as always, adorable this month.

For my card I decided to create a one layer stamped panel with masking to add some stenciled brick detail behind the girl. It's so easy to do with the coordinating die! ;)

To create my card I diecut the coordinating die for the Straight to the Point stamp set from masking paper and adhered it to the center of a white cardstock panel. I then added the Small Brick Wall stencil over top and added Pumice Stone distress ink over top with an ink blending tool.

Once I was done inking, I removed the stencil and then I removed the mask. I was left with a white area in the center of the stencil slightly larger than the stamped shape. I stamped the Straight to the Point image right in the center of the masked space, making it look like the girl is standing on front of the bricks even though its all one layer.

To finish the card, I coloured the image in with Copic markers, stamped the sentiment underneath with black ink, added some white detail to herd dress and a little clear glitter to her shoes.

Thanks for stopping by for Day 3 of the My Favorite Things May release countdown. The new release will officially be available on the MFT website on May 3, 2016 at 10pm est!

MFT May Release Countdown | Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown! Today's product release is full or rainbows and unicorns and I couldn't wait to create a card with these fun new products. We're still dealing with pretty chilly temps here in Canada so this bright, colourful card makes me happy! ;)

For my card today, I used the new End of the Rainbow die-namics along with the new Rainbow Greetings stamp set. I love the size and deign of this rainbow and that you get an awesome stitched cloud die with it.

To create my card, I diecut the rainbow from white cardstock and added colour to each piece using distress ink and an ink blending tool. I went in rainbow colour order until I had the entire rainbow complete. I also inked up a stitched rectangle panel with distress inks to look like the sky for the background of the rainbow.

Once I had all of the inking done, I put all of the pieces onto a paper towel, spritzed them with water and then folded the paper towel over to soak up the excess water. This leaves awesome water splotches in the ink and gives the sky and rainbow a fun distressed look.

To complete the card I stamped the sentiment on the cloud that I had diecut from white cardstock and adhered both the rainbow and the cloud to the sky panel. I adhered the entire thing to a Stone Gray top-folding card base, positioning it along the left edge of the card and I also added some sequins scattered on the card front.

MFT May Release Countdown | Day 5

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown! I am so excited for this month's release! There are so many great products and I wanted to just use everything on all of my cards lol! ;)

For my card today, I used the new Modern Mosaic background stamp and stamped and black heat embossed the design onto a piece of white cardstock to create a fun, modern design.
Once I had the background design done, I trimmed down the panel with a stitched rectangle die and then I stamped a bunch of the paint splatters from the Distressed Patterns stamp set in multiple colours all over the panel.

To create my greeting I stamped a sentiment from the new Because You stamp set onto black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut it into a strip with a diagonal cut at the end and adhered it to the stamped panel.

To complete my card I added the stamped panel to a top folding card base and added some clear sequins on the card front.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #278

Hello and welcome to the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge. This weeks sketch includes a fun grouping of strips in the center with an area for a sentiment. I love sketches like this that work so well for clean and simple designs.

For my card I cut out three strips from white cardstock using one of the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX dies. I then adhered them all side by side with temporary adhesive so I could cut off the ends with a Stitched Rectangle STAX die to make them all evenly sized rectangles. 

Once I had the ends trimmed off, I removed the temporary adhesive from the strips, took them apart and added distress inks to each of them using an ink blending tool. Once I had them all inked, I added water droplets over top to make them look distressed.

I adhered all of the strips to a white cardstock panel and then I added a Stitched Fishtail Flag cut from vellum for the sentiment to go on. I diecut the word friend from silver sparkle cardstock and black cardstock and adhered them together creating the look of a shadow behind the word.

I stamped the hello word using black ink, trimmed it out with my scissors and adhered it above the word friend to complete the sentiment. I finished the card by adding some clear sequins and then I adhered the panel to a top-folding Grout Gray card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by for this weeks sketch challenge. Make sure to head over the MFT challenge blog to submit a card using this weeks sketch and to see more samples from the creative team! ;)
