Good Times

IMG_1280 (2)

Hello and welcome

This is my card for MFT – Summer School 2020 Day 4.

I loved how this one turned out.

To begin, MFT – Wavy Coloring Book Background Stamp was white heat embossed before blending 4 different colours of Distress Ink to achieve an ombre look.

The panel was then cut in strips of varying widths. The die cut ‘Good Times’ was MFT – Die-namics LLD Accent It – Celebrate.

After arranging the strips, some small shell die cuts (Memory Box) were added for interest.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good day

Cheers

Here is another card for the MFT – Summer School 2020 – Day 2 and 3.

To begin, MFT – Four Way Chevron Cover Die – one white and one black.

The black die cut was added to a piece of card and then each piece was added once copic coloured in rainbow colours.

After adding to the card front, a fancy circle (Mama Elephant – Pizazz Pieces – Creative Cuts) was added with raised tape.

The sentiment is from MFT – Make A Wish stamp set.

The images were then copic coloured.

Speech bubble and sentiments were then stamped on the cared front.

Hello and welcome

My card uses Hero Arts – Poppies, white heat embossed and the flowers watercoloured using Distress Inks. This is an old stamp I bought about6 or 7 years ago, but still a favourite.

The panel was then added behind a square panel that had a large circle cut in the middle and then run through Craft Concepts Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

It was then added to green card before being added to the card front.

The white heat embossed sentiment was added using raised tape.

Friends

IMG_1270 (2)

Hello and welcome

My card is a special friendship card featuring Hero Arts – Beautiful Day Agapanthus. I love them.

To begin, I stamped the larger ball flower 3 times using a mask and heat embossing it in a glitter EP.  It’s the remains of an old bottle so sadly, I’m not sure what brand it is.

I used a navy paper with a glittery sheen to it, so lots of shine all over.

The water colouring used Delicata White Shimmer ink pad.  This made for super quick colouring with great results! It’s just a shame it is so difficult to photograph the shine and glitter! 😦

IMG_1268 (2)

The panel was then fussy cut along the bottom edge and added to a pale blue card front.

The ‘friends’ sentiment is from Winnie & Walter die cut from the same blue card and added to the front over the flowers.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

Cheers

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  it is Tristan’s Challenge: Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist.

Image may contain: text that says "WWC283 Tristan's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist"

My card features MFT – Sweet BD Wishes stamp set.

The birthday girl was stamped, copic coloured and fussy cut. OF course, I added some Wink of Stella to give it some shine!

The card front was cut with MFT Die-namics Stitched Basic Edges.

I thought this cute DP was a perfect background for the cupcake. A little Wink of Stella was added to the cupcakes, cut using MFT  Blueprints 26 set. I trimmed the white card front to match.

The sentiment rectangle was recurring stamping of sentiments from the same stamp set.

I added a panel inside the card for a gift card, money or some other little gift.

Hello and welcome

I’m back for the new  Penny Black Saturday August Challenge! This month the theme is  Anything Goes (Optional ‘Make the Sentiment the Focus’).  I hope you have a chance to join in the fun! It finishes soon.

I had lots of fun using this cute little PB stamp – Airborne!  I love this sweet little pup in his basket. Even better it was quick to make!  🙂

The image was watercoloured using Distress Inks and of course, some Wink of Stella on the balloons and ribbons and Gelly Roll on the strings.

IMG_1240 (2)

The cloud background used MFT Cloud stencil.

The sentiment is PB – Just for You die cut once in blue and once in white and glued together to make a blue shadow.

Hello and welcome

I decided to make a cute interactive Z-Fold spinner card. For full details you can visit Jennifer McGuire’s Z-Fold Spinner card: https://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2017/09/spin.html

For my card, I stamped images form MFT – It’s a Mice Time to Celebrate stamp set.  After stamping and copic colouring the images (2 of the mice), they were fussy cut. Wink of Stella and Gelly Roll pen was added to the images to add some extra sparkle.

IMG-0251 (2)

The sentiment is from the same set and white heat embossed on black card and then fussy cut.

As the mice are not completely symmetrical, I decided to add a glitter star as the background for them to spin on.  The stars use MFT – Star STAX die set.

The background features Altnew – Dotted Diamonds background stamp white heat embossed.
