MFT May Birthday Project...


Hello there!  It's time for another Birthday Project Challenge at MFT!  Here is a little more about it...

It’s just not a birthday celebration without candles…a single number candle for tiny tots is always a winner while a towering inferno of colorful candles can’t be beaten for those of an “advanced” age ;) Light it up this month — we can’t wait to see your cards featuring candles!

I adore the candle stamps and dies that MFT has and they make the most fun CAS cards.  Here is today's card....

MFT Birthday Project

I stamped the candles, die cut them and the attached them to the card front with fun foam.  I stamped a sentiment along the bottom in coordinating ink.

The little flames are die cut from yellow card stock and then I added a little darker yellow copic along with some yellow glitter gel pin.

I would love to see your candle creations so I hope you can play along!  Stop over to the MFT Blog to learn more about today's challenge!

Have a great day!

CARDS

My first card uses 2 new things....that I adore!!  

Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die
Ornate Foliage Stamp Set

(all supplies linked at the bottom of this post)

These might be my favorite of the release!  This new Dotted Swirls die makes the most amazing background....

Altenew May Hop

This card was super easy to make. I die cut the Dotted Swirls die on a piece of white card stock and then matted it with a gray card base. I stamped the Ornate Foliage image and filled it in with several amazing Altenew Colors. I stamped and embossed the sentiments and added them to the card front on the gray strips.

This next card? Super simple!

I stamped the beautiful bloom from the new set Delicate Clusters and then added in a sentiment in black ink.  I love the white space that makes this red bloom pop!

This next set I used for a background.  It's called Everlasting Happiness and it has so many possibilities!

I stamped it on white cardstock and colored it in with Copics.  I added a layer of vellum over the top and then attached the whole panel to an aqua card base.  I die cut the hang in there die cut in white and added that to the card front.

MFT Sketch Challenge...

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another sketch challenge over at MFT!  

MFT WSC 436

I grabbed the Builder Bears and the Distressed Patterns again because I had so much fun with these sets during release.  I love this little painter bear and just had to use him again.  I added the paint splatters to the background in full color and then left the foreground all in black and white....except for that little pop of red pain in his bucket.

MFT WSC 436

Here is this week's sketch....


Don't be afraid to change up the details a little and use your creative license to interpret the sketch.  :)

If you play long this week, link up your creation over on the MFT Blog.  Thanks for coming by today!

Taylored Expressions May Mini Release...



I am so excited to be joining the girls over at Taylored Expressions for a little mini release dedicated to Dads!  Check out the latest release by clicking HERE.  

I have 2 projects to share today.  This first one is super clean and simple but perfect for the dad in your life....

Taylored Expressions

I used the Brick by Brick Stencil to create a little detail in the background.  I stamped the Woodgrain Background onto a piece of Kraft card stock and the cut the DAD from that stamped image.  I heat embossed the Happy Father's Day and You're the Best, both from Dadisms and added all those pieces to the card in foam tape. Clean and simple!

Taylored Expressions

This next stamp set is perfect for the littles!  It's called Inky Fingers Monsters....

Taylored Expressions

I stamped each monster along the bottom and then added in the rainbow of fingerprints.  These are so fun to create and make the perfect personalized card for dad.  I added in the sentiment on a banner die and then matted the card front onto a green card base.  Super simple!

Taylored Expressions

Head on over to the Taylored Expressions to see more of today's May Mini Release

So glad you stopped by today.  Hope you have a great day!
