MFT July Card Kit Countdown Day 2

July 25, 2017

It's Day 2 of the MFT July Card Kit Countdown. The All Smiles Card Kit will be available for purchase TONIGHT at 9:00 pm EDT!

(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
Today I combined the kit with the Bold Stripes Cover-Up Die-namics.

First I stamped the flowers from the Plentiful Petals stamp set onto a piece of Smooth White CS with Lemon Chiffon, Lemon Drop, and Peach Bellini inks. Then I cut it with the Bold Stripes Cover-Up Die-namics.



I cut three more Bold Stripes Cover-Ups from Smooth White CS, layered them onto a Smooth White card base, and adhered the stamped one on top. I inlaid the stamped cut-out pieces and stamped a sentiment from the All Smiles stamp set onto one of them. 
I adhered the "Smile" cut from Kraft CS and added several sequins to finish off the card.


Head on over to the MFT blog to see the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.

MFT July Card Kit Countdown Day 1

July 24, 2017

It's time to begin the countdown to the MFT July Card Kit Release! The new kit is called All Smiles, and it will be available for purchase on July 25th at 9:00 pm EDT in the MFT store. Make sure you stop by the MFT blog today and tomorrow for the full reveal of the kit and for more inspiration from the DT.


(NOTE : The products written in boldface are included in the kit.)
I have twin cards to share with you today. I borrowed this idea from Jeniffer Mcguier's fantastic technique. I thought that the pretty flowers in the Plentiful Petals stamp set and the Double the Smiles Die-namics would go well with this technique.



I stamped the flowers onto the Smooth White and Tickled Pink panels with the help of my Mini MISTI. (The ink colors I used are listed at the bottom of this blog post.) Then I die cut out the "SMILE" from both panels and swapped them each other.

I layered three more die cut letters underneath the stamped letters to pop up the stamped words.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the All Smiles Card Kit contains and what the other DT members have come up with for today!

Thank you for stopping by!

Sweet Squirrel : Guesting for Whimsy Stamps

July 21, 2017

This is my second post as a special guest designer for Whimsy Stamps.
This time I played with the Squirrel with Flower rubber stamp and the You Are stamp set.


I had so much fun coloring this sweet image! I stamped the image with Tea Dye Distress Ink and colored it with my Copic Markers. After I finished coloring, I masked the image and applied some blue ink using a mini ink blending tool. I also added some ink blotches with a watercolor brush.
I trimmed the stamped panel and adhered to the card base along with a panel of patterned paper. The bottom edges were rounded with a corner chomper. I white embossed the sentiment onto tan card stock, cut it out with an oval die, and added a couple of enamel dots. 



Whimsy Stamps has a variety of clear stamps, rubber stamps, digital stamps, and craft supplies. Check out their fabulous products HERE!

Before I wrap up my guesting post, I'd like to say a big thank you to Whimsy Stamps for giving me this opportunity to play with their sweet & fun stamps. I really enjoyed them!!
