Fabulous

I am back again today with another card.  This time I used the Flamingo Floatie stamp set from Neat and Tangled to create a card.

The first thing I did was cut a piece of white card stock with the largest die in the Blueprints 13 die-namics. I then used Mermaid Lagoon distress ink and the Waves stencil from Hero Arts to create the water for the Flamingo Floatie.

I stamped a couple of water splashes and coloured them with Copic markers and then added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to dd some gloss and dimension.  I also coloured the Flamingo and girl image with Copic markers and popped it up on the waves with some foam tape.  I added a two toned sentiment and then backed the panel with some aqua card stock to highlight the water.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Neat and Tangled - Flamingo Floatie
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black,  Hero Arts - Fresh Peach,  Distress Inks - Mermaid Lagoon

Hello Summer

Welcome back my friends, I hope you are having a good week so far.

Today I have another card to share, using the Beach Day stamp set from Neat and Tangled.

I inked up the card base with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide and the Radiating Rays stencil from MFT Stamps.  I also cut a circle out of white card stock and then cut that into three pieces with some dies to create, sand, the ocean and the sky.  All three pieces of card stock were coloured using different Distress inks.  I popped up the circle in the middle of the card with foam tape and then added the sun, flag and cute little Hippo (also popped up with foam tape) onto the circle.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished card.

You Are My Sunshine

Welcome my friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today I created another beach scene card, this time using the absolutely adorable Beach Day stamp set from Neat and Tangled.

I decided to put the cute little Elephant into a one piece bathing suit.  I used cool gray Copic markers to colour the skin of the Elephant and the E40 range of Copic markers to colour the skin and horn of the Rhino.

I again used the Beach Scene Builder dies-namics from MFT Stamps to create the sand and sea from some white card stock.  I inked up the sand portion with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs distress inks, which I also sprayed with water and blotted up the excess to create some texture.

The sea portion was inked up lightly with Tumbled Glass distress ink and then I pounced some Mermaid Lagoon distress ink over a Stencil from Hero Arts that I received in their May 2017 My Monthly Hero Kit.

I also used the Tumbled Glass distress ink to ink up the clouds in the sky, using some card stock masks I created using the Puffy Cloud Borders dies from Lawn Fawn.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished card.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Neat and Tangled - Beach Day
Dies: MFT Stamps - Beach Scene Builder,  Lawn Fawn - Puffy Cloud Borders (For creating masks)

Make A Splash

Hello my friends and welcome back.

Today I went a little old school and made a card with lots of layers and different patterns of design paper.  I also paper pieced the little girl's bathing suit and coloured the rest of her with Copic markers.

All the layers of paper were adhered directly to the card front, except of the little swimmer, whom I popped up on foam tape.

I like the bright a summery feel of the finished card.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-Make A Splash
Dies: MFT Stamps - Mini Tab Quartet and Solid Bracket Border
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black

Lovely Day - MFTWSC341

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a good day so far.

Today was the first time in ages where it was quite cool and overcast this morning and I though I might actually need to wear a sweater.  The clouds have now burned off and it is gloriously warm and sunny again.

I was inspired by this week's sketch from the MFT Card Challenges, to break out the Fresh Squeezed stamp set and make a card.


For the little girl image, I paper pieced her dress and coloured the rest of her with Copic markers.  The background was created by using a piece of design paper that was edged on the top and bottom with one of the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges dies.  I created the square frame by cutting some white card stock with two different sizes of the Stitched Square Stax dies and then popped up the frame onto pink card stock with foam tape.

I finished off the card by adding a sentiment, some Glossy Accents to the glass of lemonade and some Pink Lemonade Sequins.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-Fresh Squeezed
Dies: MFT Stamps - Stitched Square Stax and Stitched Scallop Basic Edges
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black
Copic Markers:  Skin - E000, E00, BV00, R20  Hair - E21, E25, E27  Shoes - C5, C7, C9  Socks - C00, C1  Lemonade - Y00, Y02  Belt - RV17, RV66

At The Beach

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.

I have a card to share with you that features lots of products from MFT Stamps.

I first made the beach background by cutting white card stock with the Beach Scene Builder dies.  I coloured the sand, water and cloudy sky with distress inks.  The palm tree was cut from coloured card stock, with the same die set, and then edged with distress inks to add some detail to the tree.

The girl on the beach is from the Pure Innocence - Beach Day stamp set and the mermaid and her rock are from the Birdie Brown - Mermazing stamp set.  I glued the mermaid directly onto the card front and popped up the beach girl with foam tape to add a bit more dimension to the finished card.  It was hard to get a good picture to show that I also added some glossy accents to the swim ring to add some more fun to the card.

Here are a couple of pictures of the card, which I m loving.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence - Beach Day and Birdie Brown - Mermazing
Dies: MFT Stamps - Beach Scene Builder
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Distress Inks - Sand - Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs,  Ocean - Peacock Feather and Mermaid Lagoon,  Sky - Tumbled Glass,  Edges of Palm Tree - Gathered Twigs and Mowed Lawn
