Mr and Mrs AMAZING NEW DIES! {Spellbinders}...

A few months ago Spellbinders came out with the most adorable Die of the Month called Trucking Through the Seasons


If you follow my blog, you may remember that I freaked out over this set.  SO adorable and so easy to put together.  Well now they have a new Sentiment Add-On set that makes the original truck dies go even farther!  Lots of new sentiments!  One of the new ones is "Mr and Mrs".   I knew instantly that I need a white truck and a veil!!  So I made this....

Spellbinders

I stamped a striped background on a light gray card panel and then added that to a white card base.  Next, I built the truck!  

I die cut the truck out of white cardstock and then added in chrome mirrors, a bumper and the Mr and Mrs tailgate.  So fun!  I added the tires on in black card stock.  Instead of the tail lights, I added in hearts.

Spellbinders

I popped the truck up on foam tape and then added the veil.  You know those little toole bags you can buy for jewelry at Hobby Lobby?  I used one of those by cutting it down for a fun little veil.  I just tied the bow and added it to the truck with glue dots.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. Thanks so much for coming by today!  Hope you have a great day!

MFT May Kit Release Day....



Today is the day this gorgeous new kit from My Favorite Things is available!

MFT May Kit

The new kit called Poppies Card Kit, is ready to purchase.  My favorite part?  This amazing new background stamp.  I used a watermark ink for the most amazing simple background.  The stamp is packed with so much detail.  I just love the end result.  I added in 3 die cut strips from Skinny Strips Die-namics.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the new set called Greetings and Salutations.  I heat embossed it in Silver Embossing Powder for a fun shiny look.

MFT May Kit

Head on over to the MFT Blog to see a full list of stops to check out the kit inspiration.  Thanks so much for coming by today.  Have a great day!

CARDS


Altenew

This first stencil is called Floral Garden and it is genius!  You add in one color to the flowers, flip the stencil and then add in another color to the leaves.  It creates a gorgeous background!

Altenew

This next stencil is called Ombre Stripes....

Altenew Stencil Hop

I used Pixie Spray to adhere this stencil in place for those detailed lines to stay put.  AMAZING stuff!  It helped to make this fun and bold striped look to this card front.  

Altenew Stencil Hop

Another new super smart stencil available now is called Heart Builder....

Altenew Stencil Hop

To create this fun pattern, you add in a light color to the stencil, flip it, line it up and then add in a darker color.  I love the 3D heart look.  

I also used Altenew's new Obsidian ink on the sentiment on this card.  This ink is amazing!  Crisp, quick drying and such a perfect bold black!

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.  

MFT Birthday Project

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.  

MFT Birthday Project


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!
