MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 389


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for the newest sketch challenge at the My Favorite Things Challenge blog. I loved the layout of the sketch this month but decided to turn it into a vertical card rather than a horizontal design.

I first created the inked sky section on a white card stock panel. I masked off a rectangle shape and used Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers Distress inks to add an ombre sky. Once I was done with the inking I removed the post-it tape and trimmed the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4".

I stamped, coloured and diecut one of the adorable sloths from the Sweet Sloths stamp set and used it as a guide to stamp my sentiment in two parts on a black card stock strip so I could have the sloths head hanging down over the greeting.  

I adhered the sentiment strip directly to the panel right under the inked sky and left a small space between the sky and the sentiment strip. I added the sloth with thin foam squares, trimmed off the edge of the branch and finished the card with some pink enamel hearts to match the flowers.

If you want to take part in this week's sketch challenge, head over to the Challenge blog for all the details! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

MFT & Friends | June Release


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for a new monthly feature on the My Favorite Things blog called MFT & Friends. The design team will be sharing even more cards with the newest release, and we'll be joined by different friends of MFT each month!

For my card today I used a bunch of ocean characters with some older product to create a colourful ocean scene. I love mixing and matching old and new products for fun new looks!

I used the Snow Drifts Cover-Up Die-namics to create my sand and water but only used the interior pieces of the die cut. I added colour to them with Distress Inks and then I used the outer frame as a guide to adhere the inside pieces to a white card stock panel. I removed the frame when I was done and added the whole panel to a Limelight card base.

I stamped, coloured and die cut my characters from Beach Buds, Gill Friends and Seaside Seagulls and I adhered them all onto the scene. I also die cut some wave openings so I could tuck the seagull and the shark down into the water. 

I finished the card with white gel pen detail on the images as well as the sand.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure to head over to the MFT blog to see what the rest of the team and this month's friends created! :)

My Favorite Things June Release | Just Add Color


Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share for a new monthly feature on the My Favorite Things blog called Just Add Color. The design team will be sharing cards, stamped images, and projects from the newest release that feature coloring in some way.

For my project today, I created a card with the awesome new Toucan Do It stamp set and had fun colouring the images from the set in bright vibrant colours!

I created a scene on my card using two of the toucans that I had coloured and added some of the greenery stamped in black. I love the contrast of the bright colours with the black accents and card base.

I added Distress ink under the birds to give the effect of sky and I added the little tightrope for them to stand on. I absolutely love thise funny images... the little leg warmers are hysterical! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

My Favorite Things June Release | New Product Launch


Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things June Release New Product Launch! All of the new June products we've been sharing all week are now available in the MFT online store!

I have two cards to share tonight that I also shared in this week's MFTv video, so you can see how I created them from start to finish. I used the fun Distress Oxide & Distress Glaze technique to create the ocean and then I turned them into infinity oceans on my card designs.

I love this technique so much and had a lot of fun creating these cards! And you can make them any shape you want... I love experimenting with the various shapes to get different looks.


Make sure to head to MFT Stamps to shop for the new release. I can't wait to see what everyone creates with this month's release!

For my card today I used the new Moroccan Mosaic Die-namics and created a square card with the design as the focus. I added the white background panel to a Limelight card base and white heat embossed the sentiment on bright pink card stock so it would really stand out.

To add a little dimension to the design, I added some clear gems around the center of the mosaic.

And stay tuned to the MFT blog for the week following each release - we're bringing you even more inspiration and ideas using all of the new products!

For my card today I used the newest Pure Innocence stamp set to create a colorful beach scene. I stamped the girl image with Extreme Black ink and then I coloured her with rainbow colours. I also coloured her beach bag with the same rainbow colours to make her really bright and colourful.

I created the beach scene behind her with the Beach Scene Builder Die-namics and coloured it with Distress Inks. I added water to give it a distressed look and then I added the palm tree that was coloured with Copic markers.

I created the clouds with the Mini Cloud Edge stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress ink and then I put the scene together and adhered it onto a Limelight card base. I stamped the sentiment onto the sand with black ink and added some white hightlights with a white gel pen.
