Happy Sunday! Wherever you are today, I hope you are inside and warm! It is really cold here. The winds were so strong last night we lost power twice. Power was restored fairly quickly, but a few hours is still a lot when you have no heat. I had some time this weekend to get crafty. I have a couple of cards to share today.
The first card I made using some of my new MFT Stamps goodies. I am playing along with Just Add Ink. I got my inspiration from the cup cut away on the edge and the embossed cookies. Instead of hearts I chose flowers. I started with MFT card stock in smooth white, the fabulous new Pure Plum and Summer Splash. I started with a smooth white card stock base. I layered a smooth white panel that I die cut with the stitched panel from
Blueprints 15. I layered the new Blueprints 22 stitched round edge panel die cut in pure plum. I stamped this panel with Harlequin Background in pure plum ink (HAPPY DANCING! LOVE THIS COLOR!) Instead of stamping the harlequins vertical, I chose to stamped them horizontal to create some interest and movement toward the circle element. I die cut the pure plum panel with Stitchable Dot Circle Stax. I layered a summer splash Pierced Circle Stax inside. I stamped the summer splash panel with Romantic Script Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment ink. I heat embossed with white embossing powder and sponged versamark around the edges for a richer patina. I trimmed it to fit along the side of the card. I die the sentiment panel with Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax in smooth white and stamped with a sentiment from Whimsical Wishes stamp set. I decided to have a little bit of the fishtail hanging off the edge. I die cut several of the leafy sprigs from Fall Foliage die namics and stamped with the coordinating images from Fall Foliage stamp set. I used pure plum, jellybean, and daffodil premium inks. I layered these flowers and stems along the edges. I finished my card with a few hemp cord threaded buttons.
For my second card I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and MFT Color Challenge. I decided to go completely CAS with this card.
I started with MFT kraft, smooth white, sno cone, nightshift blue, and cherry crisp card stocks. I have a kraft base. I die cut the nightshift blue panel with Blueprints 13 stitched frame. I stamped it using Diagonal Striped Background. I die cut the outside stitched frame using Blueprints 18. I layered behind the circle cut out sno cone glued to the back of the dotted cutout panel from Blueprints 22. I die cut the word "hi" from Happy Hellos die namics. I added a cherry crisp tag using Blueprints 15. I stamped this panel using a sentiment from Pretty Poppies stamp set. I finished with a few sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
