For the background, I first ink blended with Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar then stenciled the stars using Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink. I also created some texture with white acrylic paint and pink shimmer spray.

Next, I trimmed the background panel using a stitched rectangle die and adhered the panel to a green polka dot patterned paper.  And finally, I stamped the sentiment and adhered the images using either glue dots or liquid adhesive.

Hi crafty friends! Aren’t these bears adorable??? Well, if you ask me, ALL bears are adorable. I am a teddy bear collector and my love of teddy bears comes out of my childhood love for the teddy bear.

For the background, I ink blended two hillside die cuts and the sky. Next, I added some hearts with a heart stencil then added interest with blue ink splatters.

Using a sweet sentiment from the stamp set, I white heat embossed it onto a piece of black cardstock before trimming it with a sentiment strip. Lastly, I added all of the elements to the front of my card panel using foam adhesive, liquid glue, or glue dots.

MFT Stamps Lovable Leopards | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps Lovable Leopard

 

Hey crafty friends! It has been such a busy week that I absolutely needed some downtime and what better way to relax than to create a fun card. Normally, I find coloring to be my solace and these guys are just the cutest image.

Unfortunately, this stamp set is discontinued but there are a ton of other stamps similar to this one by MFT Stamps.

I started my card by creating the background first. Using MFT Stamps’ Mini Cloud Edges stencil, I created a fun cloudy sky with Distress Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon. Next, I stamped and colored my images using Copic Markers.

Copic Marker Combination

Leopards: YR18, YR14, Y35, Y23, YR30
Nose/Snout: YR24, Y23, YR30
Brown: E29, E27, E25
Green: YG17, YG05, YG03, YG01

 

MFT Stamps Lovable Leopard

 

After coloring all of the images, I used the coordinating dies and set the images aside to continue creating the background.

I ink blended the grassy hill using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink then added a little Lucky Clover to create some depth. For the last element on my scene card, I die-cut yellow cardstock and added Wild Honey and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide for dimension.

After coloring and ink blending, I began building my scene card by adding the image and die cuts with foam adhesive or liquid glue.

And finally, I heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and trimmed it with a banner sentiment strip.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it. As a bonus, I have the perfect recipients for this card in mind. I want them to know that even though we have not seen each other for a while, I hold them very dear in my heart.

MFT Stamps Let’s Stick Together | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together

 

Hey crafty friends! During the summer months, I like to re-build my stash of birthday cards for the upcoming year. Today, I’m sharing a fun birthday-inspired card featuring MFT Stamps’ Let’s Stick Together. These cacti are beyond adorable!

I stamped all of the images onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. All the images are colored with Copic Markers using the color combinations listed below.

Cacti: G28, YG67, YG17, YG13, YG01
Terracotta Pots: E18, E19, E08, E97, E95
Pink: RV17, RV55, RV52

I absolutely love bright and vibrant colors on my cards and this card called for a nice yellow background. Using Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade, I inked up a piece of heavy-weight smooth cardstock. Then I created some texture by spritzing water on the panel and blotting it dry with a clean paper towel.

I thought the panel needs a little more so I splattered diluted white paint, yellow paint, and a little bit of orange paint for a festive look.

 

MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together

 

I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge for the layout of this card and I followed their design sketch. For the rectangle element on my card, I simply added the scalloped rectangle frames and placed my images in the center. Finally, to finish this card, I stamped the sentiment and layered the front panel with foam adhesive to a brown cardstock mat.

MFT Stamps Magical Dragons | Copic Coloring

MFT Magical Dragons

 

Hey crafty friends! I needed to make a card for a wonderful friend of mine and reached in my stash of older stamps for this one. Being a huge fan of mythological creatures and dragons, as cute as these, they are at the top of my list.

I am slowly working through my stash of stamps that I had to have and never used, you know the one most of us crafters seem to have. And this set was perfect for the occasion. I started by stamping out all of the images with black ink and coloring with Copic Markers.

Copic Marker Combination

Teal: BG49, BG57, BG45, BG53, B00
On the second blend, I added BG72 in the shadows and BG11 to the highlight areas to create a teal blend.

For the background, I created an ink blended background and a grassy hill using an older die from MFT Stamps. The Snowy Hillside Die-namics is not available anymore but there are several other similar products on the market.

Finally, to complete this card, I added a brown mat to an A2-sized white card base. Next, I layered the background elements using foam adhesive and added a white heat embossed sentiment strip onto the same brown cardstock.

For a little relaxation, I colored the other images in this stamp set to use for another time.

MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants

Hey crafty friends! I have made a personal goal to reach into my stash of older stamps and use them at least once. For today’s card, I picked out an oldie but a goodie to start my challenge.

I began by stamping out the images from MFT Stamps onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo ink. I used my Copic Markers to color in the images, and then I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out.

 

Copic Marker Combination

Elephant: C5, C3, C1, C0, C7 for deep shadows
Ears: RV52, RV00, 0
Balloon: RV69, RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02
Flowers: RV06, RV02, Y15, Y00
Butterflies: RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02

 

MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants

 

For the background, I created a simple cloud stenciled sky using the Mini Cloud Edge stencil and grass using the Tucked in Turf, Vertical die for this mini-scene. I used the stitched rectangle die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics to die-cut all of the elements for my background.

Finally, to complete this card, I added a gray mat to an A2-sized white card base, then layered the background elements using foam adhesive, images, and finally added a white heat embossed sentiment strip.

Spotlight Ink-Blended Die-cutting | Two-For-One Cards | MFT Mermazing

Hi crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a fun project featuring spotlight ink blended die-cutting that results in two cards for one! I
created the two cards using MFT Mermaid Tail Background and Mermazing Stamp sets.

MFT Mermazing

To begin, I stamped the background stamp onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed
one background with white embossing powder and black embossing powder on the other panel. I reached for my Misti to help
me stamp the background in the same spot on both of my panels.

MFT-Mermazing

MFT Background

Next, I ink blended the white embossed background using Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Broken China, and Cracked Pistachio
Distress Ink and left the black embossed panel plain.

MFT Background

In order to achieve the spotlight of the stamped background, I arranged both of the panels one on top of the other and die cut a
heart out of the center of both panels. While the second panel did not cut all the way through, by placing it under the panel
previously, the die left an indentation to place the die and cut it through.

Copic Markers Combination

Mermaid Tail: V09, V06, V04, V01, V000
Hair: YR15, YR18, R29, R59, E47
Dark Turtle: E30, E23, E25, E29, G28, YG17, YG13, YG01
Mermaid tail: BG49, BG45, BG53
Hair: E50, E53, E55, E57
Light Turtle: E40, E42, E43, E40, G28, YG17, YG13, YG00
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R30, R20

MFT-Mermazing

After coloring and die cutting the images, I added the background panels to a white card base and added the opposite heart die
cut with dimension to highlight the spotlight die-cut. I was able to create two cards at once by using one
background stamp and one die-cut.

I love how the ink blended background perfectly lines up with the black embossed one. I added the stamped sentiment stirps
and added the images to the heart die-cuts and I have two very stunning cards with the effort of one.

MFT Sweet Sloths Hanging out with My Favorite Person Card

Happy weekend crafty friends! I wanted to share a sweet little sloth card featuring the MFT Sweet Sloths images
for the current sketch challenge on the MFT blog.

Unfortunately, this set is retired, but with MFT’s Vault releases opening up, you never know, this set might come back.

I began by stamping one of the sloth images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black
dye ink and colored it in with Copic Markers.

Copic Markers Combination

Sloth Body: E29, E39, E35, E33, E31

Leaves: YG17, YG06, YG01
Butterflies: BV08, BV13, BV01
Y17, Y08, Y02, Y00
R89, R85, R81

For the background, I blended Distress Oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock focusing on
the upper half of the panel. I splattered the panel with water and blotted it dry with a paper towel.

Using a stitched scallop edge frames die, I die cut several pieces of white cardstock so that I can stack them
for a bit of dimension. At this point, I began adhering all of the components to a white card base using
foam tape and liquid adhesive.

MFT Stamps Captivating Mandala | Easy Water-colored Background | Christmas Handmade Card

Hi everyone! It seems that my Christmas cardmaking season is off to a slow start so I thought I’d make a quick and simple
Christmas card to add to my stash.

A clean and simple Merry Christmas handmade card featuring MFT Captivating Mandala die set against an ink water colored background.

For this card, I wanted to create a bright background that would perfectly compliment the Captivating Mandala die
by My Favorite Things. I began this card by painting a bright blue background using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide
ink and Tim Holtz’s watercolor cardstock. I did a little ink smooshing with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink
and let the panel air dry.

A clean and simple Merry Christmas handmade card featuring MFT Captivating Mandala die set against an ink water colored background.

While the background was drying, I die cut the Captivating Mandala four separate times out of white heavyweight cardstock
and stacked them together for thickness. As a final step, my helper (aka my very eager daughter) sprayed the snowflake with
Glitter Dust in Silver for a little sparkle.
After all of the components were dry, I stamped the sentiment and heat set it with red embossing powder and added the
snowflake to the front with a red piece of thread to tie in the sentiment.

This card was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge # 463 on their blog. Check out the
