MFT - Clean and Simple - Awesome ...

Hi Everyone!

A fun challenge at MFT - the 2017 Superstar Card Contest.  My card is for the Clean and Simple Genius Category

On white card stock I used various stamps from MFT - Abstract Art and Distressed Patterns to create the distressed/grunge/abstract design. The various Dye Inks used were MFT - Grape Jelly, Periwinkle, Pure Plum, Orange Zest, Lemon Drop. I like how the inks layered and retained their true color even on the grape and periwinkle colors. This panel was die cut using the stitched die panel from MFT - Blueprints 20. The diagonal striped strip was created using MFT - Bold Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp and MFT - Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. A very thin strip of black card stock was adhered just above the striped strip. The sentiments (from MFT - Simply Fabulous Sayings and Essential Sentiments) were stamped using MFT - Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

Even with all the colors, I think my grandsons (teen and young adult) will like this creation.

Muse - thanks ...

Hi Everyone!

Today, I'm playing cards for the Muse Challenge #232 where Anita provided a gorgeous clean card for our inspirations. My rendition is an almost CASE. I focused on the colors and blending, white pattern in the color band, black die-cut sentiment and white embossed on black sentiment. The colors used are Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Evergreen Bough. The pattern was created by randomly stamping a flower in Versamark then white heat embossing. The thanks was diecut three times and layered. A few paintings of clear WOS add shimmer. The remainder of the sentiment was stamped in white and white heat embossed on black. A few clear sequins complete the card.

MCV - Season's Greetings

Greetings!

Just having fun playing cards with Muse: ChristmasVisions 83. Actually, this is the second card I made (but didn't post before today) ... it's an extra for fun. My inspiration came from the small houses on one of Cornelia's cards.  I thought of them as gingerbread houses. I stamped the houses and sentiment in brown ink. To give the gingerbread look I used a white Gelly Roll pen to add frosting/icing to the roof lines. Strips in red and green foil DP were adhered below the houses.

MFT - birthday ...

Hi Everyone,

Another fun acitivity at MFT - Camp Create ... Delightful Die-cutting.

My card is very CAS. The die-cut was created from an ink blended panel. It was layered with three cuts of black card stock for dimension and interest. For shimmer a few coats of clear WOS were applied. Clear sequins add sparkle.

MFT - thinking of you

Hi Everyone!

Another fun activity at MFT - Camp Create - Monochromatic Magic. I chose to use Kraft, light browns and cream colors. The floral image and butterfly were stamped on DP. A light coating of clear WOS was applied to the flowers and butterfly. The sentiment was stamped using a Chocolate colored pigment ink and heat embossed with clear EP. For interest score lines were made between the image and sentiment.

MFT - Magnificent Masking

Hi Everyone,

Another session at MFT Camp Create - Magnificent Masking. 

I chose to use the Doodle Blooms stamp set to stamp, mask, stamp, etc. various blooms. The large ones were chosen to color in shades of red with Copic markers. Clear WOS and gold sequins add shimmer and sparkle. To separate the flower panel from the sentiment panel strips of foil paper in gold and red were adhered. The sentiment was stamped/heat embossed in white on the black panel.
