MFT Card Challenge

I created this card for the current My Favorite Things Colour Challenge #108 and Sketch Challenge #418. The My Favorite Things Otterly Love You stamp set is so cute. The stamp images were coloured with Copic markers and die cut with the matching dies.

I started by dry embossing the larger Dienamics Stitched Dome nested die onto the background cardstock and masked off the edges so I could ink blend distress oxide Chipped Sapphire over the shape. I then die cut a smaller dome out of white cards stock and used the Dienamics Ocean Waves dies to cut the top of the dome into wave shapes and added some extra wave shapes. I then blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire over the die cut. To make the waves stand out a bit more I also used the waves dies to cut some vellum and offset them behind the waves.

Once the front die was completed I sprinkled water over it and patted it dry with a paper towel to give a watery effect. The sentiment was heat embossed with Hero Arts White embossing powder.

Tip: Make sure the distress oxide ink is completely dry before heat embossing. To check if it’s dry tip some embossing powder over the card and tip off. If any remains then it’s not quite dry. Use a heat tool to dry completely or leave to air dry for longer.

Finally, I added some Liquitex irridescent medium with a brush to the heart and the fish and coloured over the otters nose and eyes with a black marker to make them darker.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Let’s play rugby

Hello again. This is a custom order I created recently. Happy I managed to purchase some of the Lily of The Valley digistamps before they stopped selling them and this image was a perfect fit for the recipient – Rugby Mad. Wanted to also try the My Favorite Things Double Slider Loop Slot dies for the first time and it worked perfectly.

The Mama Elephant  Swinging Borders and Lots of Letters sets were the perfect size to add in the corner as was the Sun from Concord and 9th  Shine On. Of course, my go to cloud stencil from My Favorite Things along with their grass stencil makes the perfect background.

Hope you enjoyed learning about this card.

All those doggos

Hey there and welcome back.

I had a custom order to complete recently and this is one of the cards I made.  Loved using the Mama Elephant The Dog’s Woof and Lots of Letters stamp sets. I really wanted to try to create different looks for the dogs and had great fun trying out some copic colouring techniques.  I’m not sure which is my favourite but one does look suspiciously like it has chicken pox!

This card also has an interactive element which was pretty easy to create.  I used the My Favorite Things Surf and Turf set.  The photo below shows what appears when the slider is pulled – Mama Elephant Celebration Balloons.

Hopefully the recipient loves it too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Dress a Bear – Slider card

There are a few firsts with this card… 1. Making a slider card and 2. Adding a video to my blog.

When I saw the new release stamp set Dress Me Up from Create a Smile Stamps I had an idea to use a slider mechanism to dress the bears. Originally I thought I would have the clothes on the slider but decided (while out walking my doggos and mulling my idea over) to put Mr Bear on the slider instead. Excuse the nakedness 😜.

Watch the video below to view it in motion.

I love how Mr Bear’s clothes turned out… A little bit of checked fabric going on.

Other products used:

  • Mama Elephant Congrats all Round
  • My Favorite Things Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax
  • My Favorite Things Wood Plank background stamp
  • Ranger Distress Oxide Inks Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple

I’ll also be entering this card in the latest Create a Smile challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

MFT Sketch Challenge #395

I thought I should extend myself more by entering another challenge…this time a sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.

lrm_export_20180727_1529017387374098361179863.jpg

I had an idea to use a tulle see through window (well not a new idea but a new technique to me!).  Because it made me think of floating I thought the My Favorite Things space themed stamp sets I have would be perfect.  I used the Out of This World set for the stars and sentiment and Space Explorer for the rest of the images.  The circle was die cut with the Dienamics Inside Out Stitched Circle die.

lrm_export_20180727_1537268007258620324070805.jpg

I stamped the stars with Delicata Silver Ink (first time using it and I LOVE IT) and heat embossed the sentiment with Zing Silver Metallic embossing powder and added a little embossing on the nose of the space ship.  A little bit of extra bling with silver confetti stars too.

Furry Friends

Love the latest release by Concord & 9th.  Decided to stick to using the Furry Friends stamps with matching dies for this set of cards (all except for the last card which used My Favorite Things Party die) and I hope you love what I’ve created.  I started by stamping all the images to try out some colour combinations using Altenew Crisp Dye Inks.  The layouts came together relatively quickly so the biggest decisions I had to make were which Die Cuts with a View patterned papers to use.  

Tip: Added bling with crystals.

Tip: The gold foil on the paper made my decision for the embossed sentiment easy.  Using vellum between the layers help to make the deer stand out.

Tip: Adding hearts out of the same glitter paper as frame added some extra interest.

Tip:  Added diamante heart to continue the theme of marriage.

Tip: Masked off each set of colours on paper so I could stamp the wreath in co-ordinating inks.  Added Glossy Accents  to wreath for dimension.

Tip:  Added vellum to help the panda face stand out.  Added gold thread to add a bit of interest.

Hope you liked the variety.

Hi again.  Another quick post with card number 2 for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge 86.

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_86

I  used two of the same products as Card No 1 (blog post for that card HERE) by My Favorite Things – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die.   The images are stamped with the Ripe Raspberry, Orange Zest and Gumdrop Green and coloured in corresponding colours with Prismacolor coloured pencils.  The background cardstock is MFT Blue Yonder. I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo and added a few diamantes.
