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!

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.

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!
