Happy New Year!  I have two cards to share today!  For the first card I am playing along with Just Us Girls photo week challenge and Seize the Birthday.  I love the colors, polka dots, and overall design of the inspiration photo.  



I am using MFT Stamps products unless otherwise noted.  

For my card I am using MFT  smooth white, bubblegum, and steel gray card stock.  The smooth white panel was die cut with Jumbo Dots Cover Up.  I cut it using bubble gum and steel gray and filled in the dots.  I die cut the focal image using Pierced Oval Stax.   I stamped Birthday Chalkboard Greetings using Smooth White Pigment ink.  I heat embossed with white ep.  I ink distressed the edges with both Versamark and smooth white pigment ink.  I finished the card with a silver cord bow and button.   


PrintFor my second card I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and Fusion Card Challenge.  

I am using MFT Stamps products unless otherwise noted.  For my card I am using smooth white, cotton candy, kraft, and licorice black card stocks.  I die cut the kraft frame using Rectangle Frames die namics.  I stamped the frame using the Woodgrain background stamp in premium natural ink.  I cut a background slightly larger and stamped it using smooth white pigment ink with the pattern triangles background stamp and glued to the back of the frame. 

I used the Horizontal Strips die namics to cut the sentiment strip. I stamped it using You've Got Mail stamp set in smooth white pigment ink.  I white embossed it.  I white ink distressed it a bit to comply with the inspiration chalkboard style. I used Distressed Hearts stamp set to stamp the distressed circle onto the Distressed Hearts Frame die namics.  I used smooth white pigment ink and white embossed.  I cut a section of the circle out and tucked it in behind the sentiment strip to comply with sketch.  I added a few Verve sequins to finish it off.  For the top corner portion I used Blueprints 11 and Blueprints 16 to create the little banner and to comply with sketch.  The tiny hearts came from the die in Blueprints 11.  Aren't they too cute!   I layered and inked distressed.  I also used some hemp cord knotted at the ends.   

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
