MFTs - Green Pastures and Perfect Harmony

Hello Everyone, I am so excited to be guest designing at My Favorite Things blog today.
I am showcasing their new release Green Pastures and Perfect Harmony stamp and Coordinating die-cuts.

To begin I die-cut the Die-namics Mini Chicken Wire on a white cardstock and adhered using a Mono Tombow Multi glue it on a white A2 card base.

Next, I distressed the white cardstock panels in sections using post-it. Next I die-cut the distressed panel with the new Die-namics Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX using the largest rectangle first. Then die-cut each section like the one you see below using the Die-namics Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX   .

I also used the Die-namics Cross-Stitch Oval STAX where the Green Pasture girl stands to give contrast on the colored die-cut panel. The Green Pasture girl was watercolored and fussy cut and adhered on the Coordinated die-cut piece with foam tape for dimension.

Here's the close up of all the pieces. The sentiment "Howdy" is also from the the Green Pastures stamp set, which where white heat embossed on a kraft cardstock. I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Lemon Drop, and Pink Blush to finish off the card.

For the next card, I cut  a chevron patterned paper and adhered it on the white card base. Next, I cut another panel of white cardstock and distressed it with Distress ink pad. After distressing I added some drop of water using my paint brush.

Once the panel is dry, I added some lines using a black pen for interest on the panel to tie the colors with the chevron card base. Then I added the "Happy Birthday toooo yoooou" sentiment also from the same set from Perfect Harmony  stamp set.

Next, I die-cut some vellum using the Die-namics Star STAX, to add softness to the background. The Perfect Harmony girl is also watercolored and fussy cut. I also added some Stickles on her flower clip and dress for a little sparkle.

Finally I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Bermuda Blue, Lavender Moon, Sparkling Clear, and Marshmallow to finish off the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed!

Thank you so much for stopping by :)

WPlus9 - I thought of you...

Hello Everyone, I want to share this pink bird I colored using Copic markers. This cute bird that Dawn hand drawn to create into stamps is really wonderful using any type of color media. You know I've been stuck into watercolor lately, just trying to practice using Copics again...feels that I am getting rusty with it now.

I was looking on Pinterest getting some inspiration on different color birds and I saw this pink one. 
This is how I came to Copic color this bird in pink :)

To begin my card I first stamped the bird image from Wplus9 New Day on a white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers in pink, grey, and yellow. I then added some light aqua on the side of the pink bird to accentuate. Next, I added the die-cut window from the Holiday Apertures die and adhered it on the kraft card base.

The sentiment "I thought of you" was from the Heartfelt Mix stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you so much for stopping by :)

Wplus9 - Background die-cut

Hello Everyone, I was experimenting with Wplus9 dies, creating a background die-cut from it. In this project I used the "rug" die from Wplus9 Smart Kitty Coordinating dies to create my background panel for my card. Of course there are tons for dies we could use for this type of project :)

To begin my card I first die-cut the A2 panel with "rug" die from Smart Kitty Coordinating dies. Then I used the scallop stitched from Sunshine Layers die to add a design on the die-cut panel.

Next, I distressed the white cardstock card base with Wplus9 ink pad in Beanstalk dye ink, Little Piggy, and Miami Spice to create a colored background. Then I added some splatters using the New Silver Lining Spray Mist, I added a tad of water on the acrylic block to dilute some of the colors to make it a tad lighter, and use my paint brush tool to splatter on the front of the card.

The sentiment I used was also from the Smart Kitty stamp set, I white embossed it on a black cardstock, then adhered on the panel with foam tape for dimension.

Next, I watercolored the kitty, rose, stem/leaves, and books, and die-cut each one with its coordinating dies and adhered on the card with foam tape. Then,  I added some PPP Sparkling Clear 8mm sequins to finish off the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed!
