Lots of Love - MFTWSC419

Hello my friends, today I am here to share a card I created using the current sketch from MFT Card Challenges.


For my card I used the Pure Innocence - Blowing Kisses stamp set from MFT Stamps.  I stamped her onto a piece of white card stock that I cut using the Stitched Circle Stax dies, also from MFT Stamps.

I coloured her with Copic markers and paper pieced her dress with seem design paper from the Blush 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye, which I also used as the background on the card.

I cut a piece of pink card stock with the Stitched Mini Scallop Circle Stax dies to layer behind the white stitched circle.  I popped the whole circle element onto the card front with foam tape.


Below is  list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-Blowing kisses
Dies: MFT Stamps - Stitched Circle Stax and Stitched Mini Scallop Circle Stax
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black

Card Set

Hello my friends and Happy New Year!  I hope your first week of 2019 has been good.

This week I was looking at all my craft supplies and found a few packages of Cards & Envelopes that I had bought along time ago on sale at Michaels.  Because the cards are 5" x 6.5" and much thinner card stock then I use now, I hadn't touched them in a long time.

I decided that I would make some cards and a box to hold them to give as a gift to a very sweet older lady in out neighbourhood.  I hoping that she will be able to use them. In order to create the box to hold the cards I used this Card Box video from Catherine Pooler.


I ended up making 10 cards using a selection of stamp and dies from WPlus9 and MFT Stamps.














Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Wplus9 - Summer Blooms, Fresh Cut Florals and Freehand Florals  MFT Stamps - Big Greetings, Cup Of Tea and Flashy Florals
Dies: Wplus9 - Fresh Cut Florals and Freehand Florals  MFT Stamps - Stitched Oval Stax, Many Thanks, Tea Party, Blueprints 27, Rectangle Peek-a-Boo Window, Stitched Blooms, Layered Leaves, Thanks & Hello, Happy Birthday, Flashy Florals  Simon Says Stamp - Scallop Stitches  Spellbinders: Floral Ovals
Inks: Hero Arts - Soft Pink, Bubble Gum, Ultra Pink, Soft Vanilla, Butter Bar, Soft Cantaloupe, Dark Quartz, Soft Sky, Cornflower, Navy, Lime Green and Soft Olive
Other: Recollections - 5" x 6.5" card bases, 110lb Pink, White, Grey, Green & Teal card stock

Thank you so much for dropping by.  I hope you have a lovely day, Kathy

Fairy Wishes

Hello, I'm back again to share another card I created using the My Monthly Hero Kit December 2018 from Hero Arts.




For this card I cut a piece of white card stock with the largest die from the Blueprints 13 die-namics from MFT Stamps.  I inked it up with some Broken China Distress oxide, which I then sprayed with some water and blotted up the excess.  I also sprayed it with some Creme Brûlée Cream Starburst Spray from Lindy Stamp Gang, to add some sparkle.

I coloured the stamped images with Copic markers and glued them down flat to the card panel except for the fairy which I popped up with some foam tape.

Below is a list of the supplies I used.

May All Your Wishes Come True

Hello again my friends, I am back to share one more card that I created using the My Monthly Hero Kit December 2018 from Hero Arts. (As of today, It's still available for purchase.)



For this card I skipped the fairies and decided to use the cute mouse holding a dandelion.  I again used some distress oxide inks for the background but this time to create some grass and a cloudy sky.

The images were coloured with Copic markers and glued flat against the card base.

Wish, Big or Small

Hello again my friends, I am back to share another card I created using the My Monthly Hero Kit December 2018 from Hero Arts.





I first stamped, comic coloured and cut out some images from the kit.

I then cut a white card stock panel, using a die from the MFT Stamps - Blueprints 20.  I inked that panel using Faded Jeans, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides.  Once the panel was inked up, I sprayed it with some water and blotted up the excess.  Then I lightly sprayed with some Marshmallow Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed with some Snow Detail embossing powder.

The partial dandelions where glued directly to the card stock panel and the largest flower and angel were popped up with some foam tape.

I love the combination of colours and images.

Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Dies: Hero Arts - My Monthly Hero Kit December 2018,  MFT Stamps - Blueprints 20

Never Stop Dreaming

Hello my friends and welcome back.

I hope you are ready for Christmas, if you celebrate it.  It's a pretty quiet day in my house so not too much preparation is required.

Today I am here to share the first card I created using the December 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts.  I absolutely love this kit with the combination of fairies and dandelions, which includes dies for all the stamp images.
(As of today, December 20, 2018 the kit is still available.)




The card I am sharing was very much inspired by a card created by Nichol Spohr for Hero Arts.
