Bookmark -Lookin’ Sharp!

Hello everyone again!!

 

A trip to the homeland came closer. From tomorrow I am on a one-month break in all my card-making activities. I’m sure, I will not have to much free time, but I want to be sure that I have something at hand if I catch time. And yes travel by plane takes about three hours. What I can do during that time??????

The answer is simple….Cross stitching!!!!!!!

I die cut latest cross-stitch bookmarks from MFT,  I also prepared threads in various colors and ready to go!!

 

But before I go, I have another project to share with you… Yes, you guessed correctly…Cross-stitch project!

 

Lookin' Sharp.jpg

 

For this project I used Cross-Stitch Printables From MFT Blog. This background perfectly matches with new Saddle Up And Celebrate stamps set.

I stamped images from the set with Copic friendly black ink and colored with my Copic Markers. After that I used matching dies to die cut them out. Look at those flowers .. They look the same…

 

 

Until next time.. Happy crafting!!

Under the Sea Light-Shadow-Box!

Hello everyone!!

 

I am here again. Yesterday I presented two CAS cards and today is the time to introduce you something a bit more complicated. It is Under the Sea Light-Shadow-Box.

For this project I used many products from MFT so take a look at the supply list down at the bottom of this post!

 

shadow box

 

First I cut two pieces of white cardstock 19 x 17 cm. I scored on long side 2 cm on both sides. So I had two panels, each has two flaps. These flaps  give your shadow-box depth and actually help you to connect panels.

Next step was to apply Chipped Saphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans distress inks on both panels. After that I used Make Waves stancil and applied MFT Sweet Tooth pigment ink on whole surface. On one of the panels I die cut the window with A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax set 1 and added acetate on the back of the panel.

 

Now is the time to create a scene. the idea was to have an underwater castle, so I used Castle die-namics and Kraft cardstock and die cut pieces. I also apply dots with my Copic markers on every piece to get sandy look. The same technique I used for the bottom of the see and I die cut with Surf and Turf Die-namics.

 

shadow box 2

 

 

I stamped all images with MFT Extreme Black ink on Neenah Soler White cardstock and colored with my Copic Markers. (Seaweeds are stamped with Limelight and Field Day Premium dye inks). All stamps sets and coordinating dies you can find in supply list down below. Small fish I stamped on the panels with black ink and added some details with white gel pen too.

After that I created the scene. Some of the images I added directly to the background, for some I used foam tape. Some of them is glued on the inside some of them outside of the box. On this way I get depth and a little more realistic look.

 

For a little more interesting look , I added removable small lights inside. It is difficult to show in the picture but it looks very nice when the lights are off in the room. Just like a small aquarium.

My Favorite Things Guest Designer Part 3!

 

Hello MFT fans!

I am here again with three latest projects. Like I already said, July release is full of amazing new products and it was extremely hard to pick out ones that I would use to create projects for guest design spot! I tried to think of something new, to figure out unique and interesting ideas to feature and show off newest products. So for today I have couple of ideas, so lets go!

 

For the first project I decided to use Mini Balloon Shaker Window and Frame die-namcis together with Mini Balloon Shaker Pouch in a little bit of different way than we usually use shaker pouches.

 

No15

Trick is that shaker pouch is just a little bit larger than frame, so you just have to trim it down to the size with your scissors. For glue use something you know is strong – I use Scor-tape. Than fill your shaker with favorite shaker material ( this time I used Diamond Dust and Lipgloss Microbeads) and back it up with a piece
of acetate that you cut down to fit your frame.

For the  second part of the card ink on a white cardstock using blending tool from top to bottom – Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Candid Apple, Fosilized Amber and
Twisted Citron oxide inks and than cut it out with Happy Birthday Block die-namics.
Negative die cut I used as a guide to position correctly all of the letters on a white background and after that I added my stand alone shaker balloon on top.

 

 

Second card offers a different idea on using Happy Birthday Ballon Trio die-namics.

 

No23

 

 

For the start I die cut 13 balloons as there is that much letters in ‘Happy Birthday’. Than I inked every baloon in different shade of ink – like rainbow colors. Than I glued letters on each of the balloon (by the way, when you cut out so much balloons
you will get a ton of letters that you can use in future projects). After all that I glued balloons on a background panel in different way – some I glued directly on a background an on some I used foam tape to add some dimension. In addition to the sentiment this time I used new Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings Stamp Set and super
funny sentiment which I stamped  with VersaMark clear ink and embosed it with White Detail embossing powder.

 

 

For my last card I decided to use PI Girl Birthday Cutie together with leftovers letters from the previous card.

 

No14

 

For the background I used Smooshing technique with Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio Oxide inks and Die cut with Blueprints 27.
I stamped image with MFT Extreme Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers. After I die cut her with matching die.
Sentiment comes from the same set and I stamped with Wilted Violet oxide ink using my Misti. I also added some detail on my coloring with Uni-Ball White Gel Pen.

 

 

Once again, I want to thank MFT on this opportunity!
It was a great pleasure to be here this month.
Until next time I wish you all lots of inspiration an amazing cards!

My Favorite Things Guest Designer Part 2

 

Hello everyone!

I am back here with you all! Today I want to show you two projects with Products from July release. I hope you like my ideas and that they will inspire you to create
something similar.

I am a big fan of The Greatest Showman movie (as I believe many of you are too)
so the Greatest Show stamp set was No.1 for creating. This time, the spotlight is
on the Greatest Showbear (if I may say so).

 

No22

For background panel I used Sno Cone cardstock which I have cut out with A2
Stitched Rectangle Stax Set 1. Next step was stamping everything with Copic
friendly black ink and color everything with copics. After that I have cut out
everything with coordinating dies. Besides new products on this card I used two
sets that are features in earlier releases and those are Town Bear and In Paris
stamp sets and dies.

 

Just about in half of this card, above the roofs of the city I
glued twine on witch this Showbear is doing his tricks.
The clouds that you see in the background are from newest Love Bugs set.
The sentiment is stamped with black ink and cut out with blueprints 27.

 

 

 

Todays second project required little bit more effort but I am so satisfied with the result!

 

No11

 

For the start I used Kraft cardstock and stamped Wood Plank Background with Milk Chocolate Dye ink on the whole surface. After that I applied Biscoti Dye ink with my mini blending tool and cut out the ‘doors’ with A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax Set 1 .
Idea about saloon doors was a key element for this project I cut them out with Elegant Rectangle Stax die-namics.
I also put a sign above the doors and I used Pop-Up Alphabet die-namics for that purpose. Lasso came afterwords as a natural embelishment!

All of the images are stamped with Copic friendly black ink and colored with Copic markers. Afterwords I cut all of them with coordinating dies.
Besides new Saddle Up and Celebrate stamp set I used Best In The West stamps and dies.

 

 

No12
Inside of the saloon is from Kraft paper on witch I stamped my sentiment with Milk Chocolate Dye ink.

At the end I wanted to put in some red so I used Sweet Succulents stamp set and dies for the hearth but I also stamped the pot for the cactus from the same set. As a finishing touch I added White gel pen details and some Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen.

That would be all for today, see you again in couple of days! Until than, happy crafting!

July MFT Guest Designer!!

 

Hello everyone!

I am so happy to be here with you all again! I am so grateful to MFT who invited me to be a guest designer again this month!
July release is full of amazing and interesting things and I have to admit that it was hard for me to choose a product that I would use for my first Project.

 

For today I decided to make a gift box which can be given to someone dear or a crafty friend who would love to try embroidery but does not have materials.

 

Photo No1

 

For the box I used two pieces of white cardstock that I cut to 6*6 inches. At all 4 sides I scored at 1 inch, and than make a cut in all four corners.
I used score tape to assemble the box and than on the lid I used Gift Shaker Window and Frame Die-namics to make a window.
The newest Gift Shaker Pouch takes up this hobby to a higher level.

 

This time for shaker material I used Lipgloss Microbeads. On the back of the shaker window I glued acetate sheet so the contents
of the gift box is visible.

 

Photo No2

 

For the frame I use MFT Farm Fresh Gingham paper pack.
To decorate the lid I used new Stitched Beautiful Bows die namics
(do I have to say that I LOVE this product??!)
I have cut the bow from the felt in pink color and the same color I used to make flowers that I made using Mini Rolled Roses die-namics.
I also used the white felt for the roses just to put some interest.

 

 

Photo No3

 

Inside of the box is filled with embroidery threads in coordinating colors and two Cross Stitch Tags which I assembled with thread so recipient would know how to assemble them after they finish the pattern.

 

 

Photo No4

 

As ling as we are at thread and needle I am gonna use the opportunity to show you my latest Cross-stitch Projects in which you can see different MFT dies that you can use to make big collection of cards.

 

For all of them I used cross stitch printable, and you can find them on MFT blog.

 

Photo No5

 

On this card I used Stitch Tag-Corner Rectangle Stax Die-namcis.
I also stamped sentiment  “Welcome, little one” from Essential Sentiments stamps set in the inside of the card  with Grape Jelly Premium Dye ink.

 

 

Photo No6

 

For this card I used Stitched Tag-Corner Square Stax Die-namics and again same sentiment but this time I used Cotton Candy Premium Dye ink for stamping.

 

 

Photo No7

 

 

This time I Die cut the frame with A2 Rectangle Stax Die-namics Set 1 and 2. Hello, Beautiful sentiment from the same stamps set I stamped inside of the card with Pure Plum Premium Dye ink.

 

I hope you like what I prepared for you!
Can’t wait to come back in couple of days! Until than – keep calm and craft on!

MFT Mermazing !!

Hello everyone again!!

 

This is me with my second card for today!! Our trip to Greece is close and I’m very nervous and excited at the same time. The whole year has passed since my last trip to this wonderful country. Beautiful sea with beautiful beaches, very kind domestic residents and delicious food and cakes…. OMG I can not wait anymore!!

 

But let’s go back to my finished project….

 

juni2018 10

I stamped all my images from MFT Mermazing stamps set on Bristol Smooth white card stock with Memento black ink and colored with my Copic Markers. After that I made masks for all images using Stamping Mask paper from Inkadinkado.

 

After that I applied Distress oxide inks with my mini ink blending tool. (Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry. On the top of the panel I used Radiating Rays Stencil with MFT Sweet Tooth pigment ink. I also used Distress Sprayer by Ranger with water to create sprayed effects.

juni2018 10-2

 

On the botom of the panel I colored sand with Copic Markers and added dots with different shade of the markers. After the background has dried I stamped corals and sea grass with Picked Raspberry, Faded Jeans and Lucky Clover Oxide inks. I also added some Clear Droplets By Pretty Pink Posh 4 and 6 mm.

 

And at that moment I decided to make shaker card.. I created the frame with A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax Set 1 and 2 Die-namics. First I die cut 5 frames from the white cards stock and the last I die cut from the MFT Silver Sparkle Card stock. On the back of the Silver frame I added Heat Resistant Acetate.

 

juni2018 10.

 

For my shaker elements this time I decided to use combination of Lipgloss Microbeads and Diamond Dust. The sound created by these two materials is unbelievable, it really sounds like waves. That’s why I did my first video. I know it’s not good quality but hallo this is my first ever made cardmaking video.
