MFT May Release Countdown: Day Five!

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

It’s time to being the countdown to the FABULOUS May MFT Release!  All of the new products will be available on Tuesday, May 3rd at 10PM right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

Today I have a card to share with you using the latest from the Lisa Johnson Designs line, Make Yourself At Home and Make Yourself At Home Die-namics!  LOVE!

This was SO fun to make!  I LOVE to create scenes!  I started by cutting out the lamp, chair, table, vase, rug and wall art using the Make Yourself At Home Die-namics from X-Press It Blending Card and then stamped them all using Make Yourself At Home with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I colored them all using Copic Markers, and then arranged them onto a panel of Natural Card Stock cut with the Stitched Square STAX Die-namics.  I used the same Die-namics to cut a piece of patterned paper from the new Watercolor Wash Paper Pack, and then trimmed it down slightly to look like wallpaper.  I then popped up all the elements to create the scene.  LOVE.

I cut a panel of Kraft Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics and added a mat of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I stamped the Kraft Card Stock panel using the Swiss Dots Background with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I then stamped the sentiment, “JUST SITTING HERE thinking of you” from Make Yourself At Home using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I wrapped the panels with Hemp Cord and then added a bow to finish off the card.

For my card today, I’ve used the darling BB Green Pastures set!  She is SO cute and one of my favorites!  I cut her from X-Press it Blending Card using the BB Green Pastures Die-namics and then stamped her with BB Green Pastures using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored her with Copic Markers and popped her up onto a panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with the Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics

I stamped the sentiment, “AW SHUCKS, I MISSED YOUR BIRTHDAY” onto the Sweet Tooth Card Stock panel using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I popped the panel up with Jody Boosters onto a gorgeous pattern of yellow gingham paper from the County Plaid Paper Pack, cut using Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  I wrapped the panel with Hemp Cord, added a bow, and then added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the card.

Happy Birthday! {CTD389}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Vickie has challenged us to use pink,orange and green!  LOVE this color combo!

I have been thinking about this darling MSTN Happy Pandas set for a few days, and I knew I wanted to use it on my card today! I cut him and his balloon out of X-Press It Blending Card using the MSTN Happy Pandas Die-namics and stamped them using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers and then added Cool Diamond Glitter to the balloon using a Quickie Glue Pen.

The main panel is Sweet Tooth Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics. I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to create the watercolored background, and I added a strip of patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Neutral Paper Pack.  I then added a strip of silver glitter tape down the side using the 6m Glitter Decorative Tape.  I popped up the panda and his balloon with Jody Boosters and then finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Jungle Friends Card Kit Release!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

It’s time!  The AMAZING new Jungle Friends Card Kit is available now right HERE in the MFT Boutique, and I have another card to share with you using this SUPER fun kit!  I LOVE it!!

Print

This alligator is the CUTEST!  Oh my word! I started by cutting the alligator from Gumdrop Green Card Stock, included in the kit. I cut the frame from Sweet Tooth Card Stock using the Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics and the background from Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock.  I cut the Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock panel with one of the slider dies.  I added the circles with the Spin & Slide Discs included in the kit, placed it into the slider slot and then adhered the alligator.  LOVE.  He starts off nice and calm and then can snap at any second!

The main panel was cut from patterned paper from the AMAZING new paper pack, Fun & Frolic Paper Pack, included in the kit, using Blueprints 13 Die-namics.  The sentiment , “SORRY I SNAPPED AT YOU”, was stamped onto a panel of Sweet Tooth Card Stock using BLueprints 12 Die-namics using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and the Jungle Friends Stamp Set.  I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
