My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents ~ Stuck with me card ~ MFT Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone,

This week I thought I’d use some of the stamps I picked up at the MFT Boutique in Eustis Florida a couple of weeks ago on my trip to Orlando.

 

My Favorite Things has a ton of adorable stamp and die sets, but for this week I choose to play with the stamp set called Sweet Succulents.

My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir Markers.

I stared by stamping all of my images onto some Spectrum Noir ultra-smooth premium white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black dye ink.

Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored the images with the following makers:

The taller cactus: LG3, LG4, and LG5
Flowers: CR4 and CR8
The shorter cactus: CG1, CT2, and IG2
Flower: BP2, BP3 and BP5
Flower pot: BG5, BG6 and BG8

To create the raised picture frame for the little cacti to sit in, I cut a piece of polka dot paper from the Dots & Stripes Valentines collection from Echo Park Paper down to 4.25”,  and then cut the square out with a stitched square scallop edge frame die from MFT.  I added a pink border for the cacti image to nest in for a little color interest.

I used a scalloped stitched edge die from the die-namics stitched scallop basic edges to cut the polka dot paper and separate the frame from the base of the card.

To cover the white background inside of the picture frame, I did a little ink blending with Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

I adhered all of my pieces to an A2 size white card base and stamped my sentiment using Lawn Fawns ink in Hippo color.

As I finished this card, I decided to enter it into the MFT Sketch Challenge over on their blog. Each week, a new challenge is posted with the required layout or your interpretation of the layout. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I win, since the prize is a $50 gift voucher for product in their store. And let’s be honest, who couldn’t use a little more MFT stamp and die sets.

MFT Pure Innocence Woof you card

Hey everyone,

I’m here with another project I made this time using MFT Pure Innocence Woof you stamp set and coordinating die. I made two cards and reversed some of the color combination.
I started off by stamping the image onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Memento black ink. I colored both of the images with Spectrum Noir markers in the exact same way.

 

Here is a list of the markers I used

Hair: TN2, TN7 and TN8
Skin: FS2 and FS3
Overall shorts: BP3, BP4 and BP5
Shoes: IG4 and IG6
Dog: IG4 and IG6
Shirt/socks: I left it white and added a little shimmer with the clear Wink of Stella pen.

For the first card I used a pink glitter paper that I cut to 4.25” x 5.5” using the largest die from Lawn Fawn stitched edge rectangles. I adhered it to my A2 card base and added the patterned paper I cut using a scalloped stitched edge die from Gina Marie Designs.  Finally I added my images with foam squares for some dimension.

Using the sentiment from the stamp set, I embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder that I stamped on a piece of grey cardstock and cut it using the biggest banner die from Lawn Fawn’s Everyday Sentiment. I added a little heart cut from the same glitter pink paper and adhered it to the edge of the banner to complete this card.

For the second card I had to get a little creative and add the glitter to the grey card stock to create a little sparkle. Using silver glitter dust, a clear spray adhesive with ultra-fine glitter, I covered the entire piece of cardstock. I adhered that piece to my A2 card base and added the patterned paper that I cut using the scalloped stitched edge die. Adding the same sentiment with white embossing and my images on foam squares completes the second card.

I hope you enjoy these two little cards and I will have them listed in the shop for purchase in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
