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.

W2CB Challenge!!

Hello everyone!

 

It is time for new Words 2 Craft By Challenge. Our words this month are:

“Go where you feel most alive”

 

https://words2craftby.blogspot.com/

 

And this is how I was inspired…

W2cb juni

This time I decide to make Shaker + No-line coloring card. For my stamping I used Natural and Cement Gray Premium Dye ink by MFT. I stamped images from MFT Town Bear and In Paris stamps sets and colored with my Copic Markers. I add some details with Uni-ball White gel pen on my coloring. When coloring was finished I die cut images with matching dies.

 

I die cut front panel with Blueprints 27 Die-namics from Ranger Woodgrain Cardstock and in the middle of the panel I die cut the window with Elegant Rectangle Stax Die-namics. I repeated this procedure several times and I glued these panels one behind the other  to get enough depth for shaker elements.

 

This time I decide to emboss sentiment on Acetate which can be very tricky but If you have Heat Resistant Acetate it can be to much easier. The trick is to keep the protective paper in place and make sure that you do not leave fingerprints. I also used EKSucces powder tool before stamping with VersaMark. After that I applied detail White embossing powder and emossed sentiment with Heat tool.

 

 

W2CB Juni 2

 

For the inside of the shaker part I used Teal card stock and I added Eiffel Tower and I die cut 4 clouds with Sweet Sloths Die-namics.  I filed shaker part with Hearts in different colors. On the front of my card I added my colored images and few hearts as well.

Hello everyone!

 

It is time to publish a mega big project that I finished long ago. This was actually a birthday present for my mother-in-law. This is approximately 25 x 17.5 cm big project (10×7 inches). I found this big embrodery board in one Danish store here in Sweden.The Embroidery thread also come from the same Danish store.

I used MFT Printable Resources with Floral Patern. On the end I decided to add 3 butterflies from MFT Beautiful Butterflies stamps set. I stamped them with MFT Premium Dye ink Periwinkle, Boysenberry and Eggplant and die cut them out with matching dies. For a bit more dimension I die cut same buterrflies 4 times from the velum and with Foam tape I added them back. For the trails I used Nuvo Crystal Drops Violet Galaxy.
