At The Beach - MFTWSC389

Hello my friends and welcome back.  Today I am sharing a card I created for the current sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges.


For my card I flipped the sketch 90 degrees to the right and used the palm tree as the bottom strip and the girl as the rectangle.

I inked up some watercolour paper with some distress inks and cut them with the Beach Scene Builder die-namic from MFT Stamps to create the sand and sea. (I just love that die set.)

Sweet On You

Hello my friends, I am here today to share a card I created using the Pure Innocence-Berry Sweet stamp set from 2012 by MFT Stamps.



I coloured her with my Copic markers and cut her out using my Scan N Cut machine.

The checkered background was created using the Gingham background stamp from MFT Stamps and Red Royal ink from Hero Arts.  I also went through my 6x6 paper pads and found a small strawberry pattern which I thought went nicely with the girl.

Fun In The Sun

I am back again to share a card I created using a Pure Innocence stamp set from MFT Stamps.  This time I used the Fun In The Sun set, which I coloured with Copic markers.  I gave the girl a rainbow water lounge and gave her darker skin and curly hair to change up my regular Caucasian colouring.

The background, which I love, was created using three different blue Distress Inks and the new Make Waves Stencil from MFT Stamps.

To create the background I first blended the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white card stock panel with the three distress inks going from light to dark. Once the panel was well blended, I stayed it with some water and then blotted up the excess water with a paper towel,  I then used the Make Waves stencil and blended some more of the matching distress ink on each of three sections.  the waves are quite subtle but I really love how it turned out.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Pure Innocence-Fun In The Sun
Dies: MFT Stamps - Slanted Sentiment Strips
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black,  Distress Inks - Broken China, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon

Hold Your Head High

Spa Day - CFC437

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

Today I am here to share a card I created for the current challenge of "barefoot" at Crazy 4 Challenges.

I looked through my stash and decided to use an older stamp set, that I don't think I have ever used before.  It is called WTG-Girls Day In from MFT Stamps. It's such a cute stamp set, I can't believe I have never used it before.

I stamped one of the main images and used a rectangle die to cut out the stamped image.  I then coloured it with my Copic markers and popped it up on the card front with foam tape.  I also stamped a couple of nail polish bottles, coloured then and fussy cut them out to add a cute accent to the finished card.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - WTG-Girls Day In
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 20 & 27,  Hero Arts - Nesting Rectangle Dies
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black
Copic Markers: Skin - E11, E33, V15  White - C00, C1  Coral - R02, R05, R08  Green - G02, G12  Background - BG10  Black - C5, C7, C9  Wine - RV66, RV69
