It's Friday! I have a card to share today. I came home from school and decided I needed to craft! Crafting helps me release all the tension from rushing around all day at school. It is the BEST Therapy!
I am playing along with this week's Freshly Made Sketches. I turned mine to make a vertical card.
I just have to say that I love my new COMFY SWEATER die namics from MFT. I see lots of possibilities with this die. I just had to use it. All products from MFT Stamps unless otherwise stated. I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler Pack. I am using steel gray, smooth white, electric red, and kraft. I cut the card base using steel gray. I die cut the smooth white with stitched frame from Blueprints 13. I stamped the electric red panel with Sweater Stitch using MFT Premium Electric Red ink pad. I sponged the edges with versa mark. Next, I die cut the white strip using Horizontal Stitch Strips. I stamped the sentiment from Cozy Greetings using MFT Premium Steel Gray ink pad. I then die cut the kraft card stock with MFT Stitched Rounded Corners. Since the sketch calls for this panel to have a straight edge, I die cut it with the Blueprints 13 to give the stitched look all the way around. I stamped this panel with Cheesecloth background using MFT Premium Natural ink pad. Love the subtle texture!
As for the sweaters, I die cut one in steel gray and left it plain. Love the collar and cuff embossed detailing that shows so beautifully. I stamped the electric red sweater with MFT Pigment Sweet Tooth ink pad using Nordic Knits stampset. I heat embossed with white ep. LOVE! LOVE! how it turned out! Looks so real! I added some foam tape for dimension. I felt like the card needed a little something, so I looped some MFT hemp cord and added a die cut buttom from MFT Blueprints 14. It gave me just the perfect finishing touch! I am playing along with The Friday Mashup! It is all about the weather! I was thinking cold weather and need for sweaters and warm thoughts!
I cut the base with primitive white. I die cut the steel gray panel with MFT Blueprints 15. I stamped this panel with the image from MFT Nordic Knits stamp set using MFT Premium Steel Gray ink pad.
I stamped the focal image using Sweater Stitched background using MFT Premium Steel Gray ink pad as well. I die cut this panel using the Quilt Square Cover Up. I die cut a primitive white panel with the Quilt Square Cover Up. I inked the edges of the primitive white pieces with some vintage distress ink for dimension and to make it look like a well loved quilt. I inked the steel gray with versa mark ink to add some depth and dimension. I assemble my quilt. I added a deep red button to the center tied with some MFT hemp cord. I added a sentiment from MFT Starry Christmas stamp using a label die from MFT Blueprints 9. I thought it looked like a quilt tag/label. Too cute! Love how it turned out! I am playing along with Christmas Cards All Year Round. The challenge is no patterned paper. I stamped all of my card stock. I am also playing along with Winter Wonderland: Let's Get Sentimental.
Right now I must get ready! I have plans to see Mockingjay Part 1 with a kiddos and some friends! I hope to post again tomorrow when I try my hands at a couple of more challenges!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
