My second card is for the MFT Color Challenge #74. I guess I sort of got inspired by the beautiful dark colors – I rarely make cards with the stencil background being the only focus, but I absolutely loved this one! 🙂

#633 – A Cup of Love

Hello! Its been a long time since I made something coffee/tea themed, and since the Coffee Loving Cardmakers’ Summer Blog Hop is going on, I thought it the perfect opportunity to get going! 🙂

A Cup of Love

Following the sketch from the latest MFT Sketch Challenge, I first colored the base using My Favorite Things Chunky Herringbone stencil and Pumice Stone and Weathered Wood distress inks. I hadn’t yet decided on the layer in between, so I decided to go wit the coffee cup instead. I die cut My Favorite Things Cool Cup out of white cardstock twice, and trimming out the mid piece in the second piece, I stamped the flowers and leaves from My Favorite Things Mini Modern Blooms, then applied a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink on the open sides. I also die cut the lid and straw out of blue colored vellum, and then adhered all the pieces together.

A Cup of Love

Now, I came to the frame. I had this piece of die cut square frame with vellum adhered on the inside, left unused from a previous project, I thought it would fit well. I stamped this frame using the same Mini Modern Blooms flowers and leaves, then adhered this over the base. I then foam mounted the cool cup, then added the sentiment from My Favorite Things cup of Tea stamp set. I added a few dots of Nuvo Drops for embellishing.

#623 – Rainbow Butterfly Thanks

PE: Top Pick at The Challenge!!

The Challenge - Honorable Mention

Runner up at Seven Hills Crafts challenge!

Hello! First off, sorry about the grainy photos, I shot them at night, and couldn’t get a clear shot, no matter how much I tried… 😦

Made a rainbow striped card, totally inspired by a list of challenges (listed below, of course!)… and the butterfly.. simply because its been awfully long since I used one! 🙂

Thanks

I used Winnie & Walter Scenery:Stripes stamp set to stamp the rainbow stripes. I then die cut the butterfly from My Favorite Things Flutter of Butterflies, then the sentiment from Winnie & Walter: In A Word: Thanks die, then die cut the banner using My Favorite Things Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner.. the sentiment and the banner were a little overlapping, forming a sort of double die cut.

Thanks

Finally foam mounted the banner, and then adhered the butterfly directly on the card base. A few clear rhinestones for embellishing finished the card.

#613 – MFT Sketch and Color Challenges

Hello! I was rearranging some MFT related Pinterest boards the other day and got super inspired by all the cards I had pinned there.. I mean, their DT has always created the most adorable, beautiful and charming cards – how could one not get inspired. More reason to make them – the MFT Sketch and Color Challenges!

I usually make a single card for both the challenges. But this time, I thought of separating the two.. more cards to make, right?! 😀 Here’s what my inspired self created –

You Are Amazing

For my first card, the inspiration comes from three sources, actually – thee sketch from Stamplorations, the colors from MFT Color Challenge and the layout from The Flower Challenge. I chose distress inks to stamp and color the flowers from MFT Modern Blooms stamp set, using a brush to lightly spread the colors to show off the texture of the paper also. I used normal inks for the leaves, and distress inks again for the stencilled background.

Here’s the supply list –

My Favorite Things Modern Blooms stamps
My Favorite Things Flashy Florals stamps
My Favorite Things Wonky Chevrons stencil
My Favorite Things Geometric Greenery stamp (partial sentiment)
Stamplorations Amazing die
clear rhinestones

You Are Amazing

I am submitting this card to the following challenges –

MFT Color Challenge #68

Stamplorations May Challenge (I used the sketch and stamping)

The Flower Challenge #8: CASE The DT Member – I chose Karren’s card. I love the stencil background.. partially done, and then the flowers stamped on top. Such a simple beauty!

And here’s my second card –

Friend, Sending you Hugs

For my second card, I used a bit of no line watercoloring. I must say, the image for this card came pretty immediately as soon as I saw the sketch. I’ve completely used distress inks on this card, including the background stamping and the sentiment.

Supply list –

My Favorite Things Some Bunny stamps
My Favorite Things Fresh Cut Grass die
My Favorite Things Friend die
My Favorite Things Scattered Surface background stamp

distress inks

Friend, Sending you Hugs
