So nice to be at the end of the week and know I have the weekend off…loads of crafting to be done this weekend, plus visiting family, what are all your plans?
Decided to share a quick card with you all before the weekend, one that I created earlier on in the year and never got around to sharing here on my blog..
I still adore those sweet little elephants from Wplus9 and so this was a pretty simple birthday card, I stamped out the little elephant, embossed with white embossing powder, then coloured in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, set aside to dry and worked on the card front…die cutting some Spring Moss card stock to form a frame using Mama Elephant, Madison Avenue die, adhering this to the card base, then die cutting a Simon Says Stamp Balloon from Blush card stock, stamping and embossing a sentiment from the Unforgettable stamp set onto it and adhering that on the inside of the frame, adding a piece of twine and my little elephant, so it looked like the balloon was carrying her away..
Super quick and easy card and a great birthday or everyday card…
Well that is me for Friday..
I will be back hopefully over the weekend to share more with you all..
Wednesday and that means MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, we are up to number 290 and it was super fun to create with this sketch this week..
I chose to use Birdie Brown, You Make My Tail Wag stamp and die set as my main feature on the card, stamping out the images that I wanted to use and colouring in with my Copics, setting these aside to work on the rest of the card..
I die cut a piece of white card stock, using the Stitched Rectangle Stax and using the English Brick Wall stencil, I blended some distress ink, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso over the stencil, to create a wall feature…I needed the wall to have some grounding, so I die cut a piece of Gumdrop card stock, using the Fresh Cut Grass die and whilst I was die cutting I die cut some Nightshift Blue and Electric Red card stock tabs from Blueprints 16..
It was time to put the card together, I die cut a piece of Kraft card stock, using the stitch rectangle from Blueprints 24, adhering all the images down to match the sketch and adding to a white card base…
I hope you will all have some time to play along with this weeks sketch, for more information on how to play along and loads of inspiration to view, check out the MFT Challenge Blog..
Have a great crafty day!
Here today to share my first Color Challenge for MFT as a design team member and I just love the colours that are in this selection…
To me these colours registers a nautical inspired creation and seeing as my man loves fishing and his birthday is almost upon us, I killed two birds with the one stone..
Taking out Sea Life and stamping the coral with Electric Red Premium Dye Ink and then a fish using Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink, I die cut these out and set aside, I then took dies from the Let’s Get Nautical and die cut the anchor and port hole out of card stock to match the colour theme…
I collaged all the pieces onto a piece of white card stock that I had blended a small area using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, adding some sand at the base of the fish using Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink and finished off the card, by stamping a sentiment from the Big Birthday Sentiments and a scattering of clear sequins..
I hope you will all have a chance to play along and share your creations..
For more information, just pop on over to the MFT Challenge Blog…
Gee the week rolls around quickly doesn’t, cannot believe I am here to share another sketch challenge with you for MFT..
This weeks challenge you can view below and don’t forget to add your entries over on the MFT Card Challenge Blog..
I had a blast with this sketch and using one of my all time favourite stamp sets from MFT and Birdie Brown, that being the Recipe for Happiness set, I stamped out all the images I wanted to use and coloured them in with my Copics, die cutting them out with the matching dies and setting aside to work on the background of the card..
To follow the sketch, I chose to die cut some Nightshift Blue and Electric Red card stock using Stitched Rectangle dies, the smallest out of the set, I adhered these to a piece of white card stock and then added the coloured in images, to complete this card, I used Blueprints 13 and 16, one to use a banner to emboss my sentiment and the other to add some stars that I die cut out of Steel Grey card stock..
I just adored how it turned out and once again, pushed me out of my comfort zone so to speak and make me think outside the square..
I hope you will all join in the fun and play along with us all..
I am off to craft and settle in on this cold night..
Have a great day!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that the start of your week is off to a smooth start..
Today marks the July Release Replay for MFT and I sure hope you all enjoyed the release and have brought up big and either are playing with your new goodies or expecting them to arrive in the mail..
So the Release Replay the Design Team get to share new and creative ways on using the July release and for me I wanted to use more with the Rawr-some and Beary Special Birthday stamp and die sets…
I went about stamping out the images I wanted to play with and coloured them up with my copics, die cutting them out and placing them onto the card to see what design I was going for..
Because I coloured them in with cheery colours, I knew I wanted to add a soft background, so I took out some Scattered Straw distress ink and blended a small area onto the white card stock, I then started to place my images, I wanted it be be a party feel card, like the dinosaur and the bear were there to celebrate something big..once I was happy with the final placement, all I needed to do was to add a sentiment from the Big Birthday Sentiments, which I embossed with white embossing powder onto some Black Licorice card stock and adhered to the base of the card..
Super sweet and cute and so much versatility with both these sets, I just love how even though these are completely 2 different sets you are still able to mix and match them together to bring a fun card to life..
Head on over the the MFT blog to see what other participating design team members Release Replay projects..
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Sunday Evening!
So it is raining again here and well I should really be in bed, but of course I am watching TV and decided I couldn’t wait to share the card with you all that I created today..
I have had the Lawn Fawn, Mermaid for You stamp and die set sitting in my craft space for several weeks now and have been itching to use and today was one of those days that I allowed myself to do so..
I created a sweet little scene and I cannot wait to play with this set again..
Stamping out the images I wanted to use, colouring in those that needed to be coloured in and die cutting them out, I set about creating a background water feature, die cutting a panel of white card stock, using the Lawn Fawn, Small Stitched Rectangles, masking off to where the stitching started and applying distress inks, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch until I was happy with the blending, I spritzed water over the top so that the ink would wick and then went about adding my images to where I wanted them on the background, completing the card with sequins and a stamped sentiment..
So stinkin cute and if anyone has not got this set yet and have been sitting on the fence, then don’t, rush out and get now, because it is a lot of fun and so whimsical..
Well had better go iron some clothes and head for bed..
Have a great night!
