To the Birthday Chick–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #382

MFTWSC382_2018apr25

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I used Stitched Scallop Basic Edges for the pointy element and Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Windows for the horizontal element—I exercised a little artistic license there ;-) I added some patterned paper behind the windows and popped up a chick within each window.

I stamped the sentiment on the card base, popped up another little chick, and finished off with some Sprinkles in matching colors.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

For My Sweet Mom–Color Throwdown Challenge #490

CTD490_2018apr25

Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda has chosen a romantic color combo based on this gorgeous inspiration piece!


swatch490

I was compelled to let the inspiration piece lead my design for this card and I went all vintage. I’m actually calling this Modern Vintage Style ;-) I simply could not resist using some distressed and crinkled seam binding from my stash that has not seen enough love lately. For the background I spread molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil and left it white and let the dimension be enough.

CTD490_2018apr25b

Then I added Magical Mandala Die-namics cut from Silver Sparkle Card Stock and the Eiffel Tower from In Paris Stamp Set and Die-namics, stamped on Cement Gray card stock. Next came Fab Foliage Die-namics cut from Cactus card stock and three Mini Royal Roses Die-namics, cut from Cotton Candy and Wild Wisteria card stocks. The leaves and the roses were sponged with Kraft dye ink. Next I added a sentiment from All About Mom, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and popped up on foam. To finish off I added some 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm Clear Round Drops.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the
Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD490 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd490 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented April Guest Designer, Hannelie Bester!

For this card I mixed cool and warm colors and I love the contrast and the way these colors work together! As before, I cut out lots of flowers and assembled them, along with a bunch of leaves. I added a strip of Black & White Stripes Paper Pack down the left side and arranged and adhered my flowers and leaves.

cardkitdayrelease_2018apr17b

I stamped a portion of a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments Stamp Set with Black Licorice dye ink. Then I cut three copies of Friend Duo Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock, stacked them for strength, and popped it up on the card front.

And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Stitched Blooms Card Kit. See you soon!

For this card I used the cool colors from the card stock collection included in the kit. Again, I cut lots of flowers and leaves and assembled the flowers first.

cardkitday1_2018apr15

Hello and welcome to Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Stitched Blooms! The kit includes Stitched Blooms Die-namics and lots of colorful card stock—perfect for flower making.

For this card I used some of the warm colors from the kit. I cut a lot of flower parts and leaves, then assembled the flowers. With Blueprints 31 Die-namics, I cut a panel then dry embossed with Radiating Rays Stencil and popped it up on foam on the card base. Then I cut the center element from Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper and popped it up, as well.

cardkitday1_2018apr15b

Next I arranged and adhered the flowers and leaves and the sentiment which was created by cutting Celebrate Die-namics three times and adhering them in a stack. To finish off I added some Sparkling Crystals from the kit.

And that’s it for Day One of MFT’s April Card Kit, Stitched Blooms. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the
