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!




For card 2....I just happy *sigh*   I was on the fence about whether or not to get this Quilt Square cover up!  So glad I did!  I love it already!  I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler Pack!  I am using Primitive White and Steel Gray.
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!
