MFT I Hope Your Birthday Is On Point

Hi everyone! The new Let’s Stick Together stamp set from MFT is too cute! I just had to have this set. For the design of this card I was inspired by 2 MFT challenges: The Birthday Project, and the Sketch Challenge.

For the ones interested, I have also created a video on my YouTube channel. If you like watching my videos and don’t want to miss any future videos, make sure to subscribe to my channel.

First I started by stamping the images on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Cacti: YG01, YG13, YG15, YG17, R22, R24, R29
  • Flower pots: E09, E39, E37, E35, E59

After fussy cutting, I adhered the cacti to the pots with tacky glue and set them aside. To create the background, I used the Snow Day stencil from Cleary Besotted together with Distress Oxide ink Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. To add more interest and a bit of sparkle, I splattered Red Gold paint from Gansai Tambi on the background. To get a nice border around the background, I die cut it with the Wonky Stitched Rectangles die.

For the Cheers sentiment, I used the Caption Alphabet die cuts from MFT. This I die cut from paper which I ink blended red with Distress Oxide ink Candied Apple. For the other sentiment, I used gold embossing powder, which matched nicely with the gold splatters on the background.

The Sketch challenge gave me the idea to let the cacti hang from twine. I tied the twine in a knot, and adhered it with tacky glue to the back of the cacti. I adhered the cacti with foam tape to the background, and taped the twine to the back of the card. And that finishes of the card!

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

MFT Shaker Birthday Card

Hi everyone! The current MFT Birthday Project challenge inspired me to create this Birthday card. I had this fun and colorful sequins in my stash which was a perfect match for a unicorn theme.

First I stamped the images from the Magical Unicorns set on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers.

  • Blue: B93, B95, B97
  • Pink: RV000, RV52, RV55
  • Purple: BV00, BV02
  • Yellow: Y18, Y13, Y11

After coloring, I ran the images through my die cutting machine with the coordinating dies. I also die cut a cloud border out of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Distress Oxide Shaded Lilac. For the background I adhered pattern paper from the Party Pattern paper pack to the card base. To dull it down a bit in the area of the main scene, I adhered vellum on top. For the shaker area, I popped up the frame with the acetate with craft foam. In the shaker area, I put all elements except the unicorn. After assembling the shaker area with the images and sequins, I finally adhered the unicorn. For some final touches, I put Wink of Stella on the wings and hair, and Stickles on the horn.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Fun and Messy Distress Oxide Background

Hi Everyone! Today’s card is inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge. The Picture Perfect stamp set was just perfect for this sketch which madethis a great opportunity to pull out this stamp set again. This is actually the first time I’m using this particular stamp from the set.

First I started with creating the background as that had to dry for a bit. For this, I stamped the Abstract Triangle rubber stamp from Simon Says on smooth watercolor cardstock. I used VersaMark ink as I wanted to heat emboss it with white embossing powder. On a craftmat, I smushed different colors of Distress Oxide ink and sprayed it with water. The colors I used are Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, and Picked Raspberry. I then grabbed my heat embossed background and smushed that in the inks. I created multiple layers, each time I dried it first before going in the ink again. This is a really fun technique to do and it creates a beautiful background.

While the background was drying, I moved on to my main scene: the dog selfie. I stamped the dogs with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my Copic markers:

  • Grey dog: W0, W2, W4
  • Brown dogs: E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
  • Ears: RV000, RV52, RV55,
  • Collar: V01, V05
  • Nose: C1, C3, C5, C9
  • Tongue: R59, R29

The sentiment I heat embossed with white embossing powder and then blended Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry on top. With a paper towel I buffed off the ink on top of the embossed sentiment. Then I cut the sentiment strip in the design I wanted and adhered it to the background with foam tape. The dog selfie I adhered to the background with tacky glue. And that finishes of the card!

Card | Congratulate Yourselfie

Hi Everyone! Today I’m back with a card featuring the Picture Perfect stamp set from MFT. The design was inspired by the current MFT Sketch challenge. I made the card for a couple that has a tabby cat and a brown dog, so I tried to depict them in the card.

First I stamped the cat and dog on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Sketch markers:

  • Dog: E31, E35, E39, RV11, E00, C1, C3, C5, C9
  • Background: YG13, YG17, YG67

For the polaroid frame I used the Die-Namic from MFT called Polaroid Shaker Frame. For the background I masked of certain area’s one by one, and blended Distress Inks on the cardstock. I used the colors: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, and Mowed Lawn. To add more interest to the background, I sprayed water over it with a Distress Sprayer and dabbed of the water with a paper towel.

I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed white embossing powder.

And that finishes the card. I hope you like it and it gave you some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
