Hello Lovely! {Stamp, Ink & Paper Challenge #100}

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink & Paper Challenge!  This week is the 100th Challenge (WOW) and the theme is card maker’s choice!  SO fun!

Well, I simply cannot get enough of the Triangle Turnabout Background from Concord & 9th, and I used yet again!  I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and then stamped the panel using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, Coral Crush Premium Dye Ink and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink.

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then stamped “HELLO” and “lovely” from Hello Lovely, also from Concord & 9th, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink respectively.  I added two flags cut using the Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics using Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock and Coral Crush Prestige Card Stock.  I finished off my card with a trio of enamel dots.

Hello Lovely! {CTD443}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Broni has challenged us to use turquoise, lime green, yellow and white!  SO pretty!

I LOVE these colors and had so much fun making this card, which I gave to my 98 year old Nani for Mother’s Day!  I started with a panel of Ranger Watercolor Paper cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I then stamped these GORGEOUS flowers from Hello Lovely by Concord & 9th using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the flowers with Black Embossing Powder.

I watercolored the flowers using my Gansai Tambi Watercolors that I got some time ago from my pal Vanessa’s shop and just used for the first time!  They are SO fun and SO pigmented!  After I watercolored the flowers, I spritzed on some of the colors, as well as some white acrylic paint that I watered down.  The sentiment, “HELLO LOVELY” was stamped using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink. A trio of rhinestones completes the card.

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time!  The Sketchy Flowers Card Kit has been released from MFT!  I am just in LOVE with this kit and have been having so much fun creating with it!

PrintThis card was SO fun to create!  I started by cutting a panel of the included Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using Blueprints 13 Die-namics, and I stamped the flowers and leaves from Sketchy Flowers using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink

I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and I then added a die cut “You” cut from Ripe Raspberry Prestige Card Stock using the You Trio Die-namics, which I coated with Glossy Accents.  I then cut a panel of Gravel Gray Prestige Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and then stamped “DESERVE TO BE CELEBRATED” from All About You using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.  I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.

Here’s To You! {Stamp, Ink & Paper Challenge #99}

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for a new Stamp, Ink & Paper Challenge, and this week, Challenge #99 is all about packaging!  I am having so much fun guest designing for this team this month!

Print

When I think of packaging, I immediately think of tags!  Tags are SO much fun to create, and I’ve used the new Sketchy Flowers Card Kit, being released tonight at 9PM EST right here in the MFT Boutique!  I started by cutting the tag from Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using the Stitched Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics, and I cut the little ribbon holder using the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics.

I stamped the panel using the Sketchy Flowers stamp set using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and then cut out the “YOU” using the You Trio Die-namics.  I then layered strips of card stock from the kit behind the “YOU”, adding in some Silver Sparkle Card Stock. I added a sentiment strip cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped “HERE’S TO” from All About You using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. A trio of rhinestones and some baker’s twine finishes off the tag.

My card today uses the included All About You Stamp set, the You Trio Die-namics and the mid-month free with $60 Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics!  I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and I then repeatedly stamped “YOU” from All About You using Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, Cotton Candy Premium Dye Ink, Coral Crush Premium Dye Ink, Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Ink, Spearmint Premium Dye Ink, Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink and Wild Wisteria Premium Dye Ink.

I added detail to each letter using a White Gel Pen, and then coated each letter, CAREFULLY, using Glossy Accents.  I cut a heart from Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink using the Heart STAX Die-namics, and then added a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut with the new Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics and stamped “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO” from All About You using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I finished off the card with a trio of enamel dots.
