MFTWSC171/ color palette 4


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I used MFT sketch 171 and color palette #4

P1050083I loved this color combo of natural, blu raspberry, razzle berry and gumdrop green. I used those MFT inks to do my background on natural cardstock. The sets are MFT MPD rose and pretty posies(love this set). I added a little yellow for interest. For the long panel I added hemp cord keeping with the natural feel. Then I added the square on pop dots, the pierced circle is from Blueprint. I added a felt rolled daisy and mini rose with some stickles for shine. Added a leafy flourish and pearl to finish the card. Sentiment is from Wendy burns stamp.

MFTWSC170/ new beginning


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I made this using MFT sketch 170. I took a few liberties with the sketch.



I love this flower plate and it looks wonderful with four colors. I have an adhesive sheet behind it so that i do not ahve to glue each piece down. The diagnoal strips were added with chalkboard frame. The saying is from movie stamp and the die is from blue print cut in half after adding the sentiment. I also added an abstract art line with razzle berry ink. For the sentiment I used steel grey love that color. for the two strainght elements I just added ribbon. The leaf is a Whimsy die and the rolled rose is MFT. Most of the dies are MFT and so is the ink and stamp.

Here is the inside



Here is a view with the envelope and money carrying puch. I did not want to glue the closing so added a button and twine.

I love the grout gray color, and I used this color combo for sketch 167 and love the look, so I used it again. this time I used textile background and for the hexagons, I did not fill it all. I added a vellum, circle from Circle stax 1 and 2. An hibiscus leaf and perrenial flower.  I added some photo coners. The sentiment is on Washi tape die and added the SD border and doodle. Some sequins were added, a brad to the center of the flower and stickles for the shine. All dies, inks and stamps are from MFT.

This is a long post. There are nine cards in all. These are all for the Love Fest challenge at Splitcoast stampers. I was on a card making frenzy and so enjoyed it.

This is for Puppy Love- card with a warm critter


I sponged watercolor paper with distress inks and then stamped with Versafine Ink, I used a ribbon and twine for the thread of affection. The main panel was cut with MFT postage die. I added brad and a wooden button for the final touch.

I am also adding it in Really Reasonable Ribbon- Show me the green

The inside is simple


This is for Lovey Dovey Spring- by Stamping Bella


The main panel is another diecut from MFT. The image is from Fred She Said- Doodled Floral Image. I love their images. I colored it with copics and paper pieced and colored the yellow flower and the leaves. I added white gel pen for effect. I love the sequins paper peeking through the lace. The saying is from MFT Fabulous sayings.

I am adding this to Great Impressions- Spring Celebrations and Simply Create Too- Shop in your stash- all the items used are from my stash.

The inside


This is for Doodle Do- Taylored Expressions


This card was heavily influenced by Jennifer McGuire. I love her videos and ideas. I added a doodled border and colored it with copics. I love the feathers and sentiment from MFT. I added some buttons for texture. When I embossed my feathers a spot did not have embossed powder on it, I took a brush and added embossing ink and then added the powder to even it out.

I am adding it to Challenge 4 everybody- Anything goes- this is a 5.5×5.5 card.

The inside


This is for the Inspiration Challenge- By Cat’s Pajamas, love the birdhouse and the iron gates.

I am adding it to Challenges 4 everybody- anything goes

This is for Let’s Score- Scor Pal

P1040542It is very hard to capture the score lines on a picture, they are above and below the sentiment. This is by far my favorite embossing folder. Then I added the MFT -Fabulous sayings(this is an awesome stamp set) so many ways to dress up a statement. Love it. I added a Pretty Posey die colored with alcohol inks on glossy accent paper. I added a pearl and a couple rose leaves.

This ribbon was given to me by my secret admirer(sshhh, don’t tell anyone it is my 8 year old daughter). She finds little things to give me wraps it up and writes- for Mommy from your secret admirer. It is adorable. I added a little MFT sentiment.

I am adding it to CAS on Sunday- color me Pretty; and Addicted to Stamps and More- CAS

I forgot to do an inside, will work on it.

MFTWSC163/ MFT color palette#2 /friendship tea

I used different stamps, dies and inks. I used the MFT combination of Kraft, blu raspberry, lemon drop and white. I created the background with MFT plaid background. Then I used It’s always time for tea dies and stamps. To create the tea spouting out I used the latest SDD borders and accents. so cute. I can see myself using it often. On the corners I used the new four corners. For the front panel the white is a die cut using Clearly Sentimental label. The sentiment is on a flag stax. I added some clear pearls for a soft effect. I also MFT blu raspberry cardstock.
