You’re The Best Chapter of My Life

I finally made another card for my third and final entry for the 2017 Card Design Superstar.   The card that you see below is my entry for the “Coloring Virtuoso” category.  I love MFT Stamps and for today’s card, I am showcasing a lot of these stamps and dies that I have been collecting over the years.  The products I used will be listed below, and they are all available at www.mftstamps.com.

 

I started out by stamping my images from the Our Story stamp set, with the Make Yourself At Home stamp set on white card stock with the MFT Stamps Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I thought these two stamp sets would be the perfect pair to create my card. I colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I have always loved coloring with my Copic markers!    I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

 

I wanted to give my little girl a nice starry, colorful window background so I used a combination of different inks to blend the colors on smooth white card stock.  I used the Die-namics Starry Circle to die-cut the background.  I also used the same die to die-cut my card front.  I wanted to inlay all of my die-cut elements on the card for my scene.  For the “flooring”, I dry-embossed my white card stock and die-cut it using the Die-namics Stitched Basic Edges 2.

 

Here’s my card:

Happy Haunting with MFT Stamps

The MFT 2017 Card Design Superstar is here and I am super excited to participate.  The card that you see below is my entry for the “Innovation Master” category.  I have always loved MFT Stamps and for today’s card, I am showcasing a lot of these stamps and dies.  The products I used will be listed below, and they are all available at www.mftstamps.com.

 

I started out by stamping my images on white card stock with the MFT Stamps Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I thought the new Happy Haunting stamp set would be the perfect pair with the Frightful Friends stamp set (released by MFT Stamps last year).  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

 

I die-cut all of the elements I needed for my scene. For the frame, I used the Die-namics Blueprints No. 32, the Die-namics Stitched Clouds Edges, and the Die-namics Birch Trees.

 

I die-cut an A2 size Vellum card stock because I wanted to create a see-through scene so that I can also use this card to display on my Halloween mantle. I wanted to use an LED tea-light to give a spooky glow behind Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein. I love how this card turned out.

 

Here’s the card without the LED tea-light behind it.

A Halloween Hello

The MFT Card Design Superstar is finally here! The card that you see below is my entry for the “Clean and Simple Genius” category.

 

Sometimes, less is really more! I wanted to create a clean and simple Halloween card with non-traditional Halloween colors.  I also like the white pumpkins as fall decor, which is why I colored the pumpkins with light gray Copic markers. I wanted my focal point to be on the little witch and her cat. These images are so adorable!

 

I started out by stamping my images on Bristol Smooth 110 lb. white card stock using my MFT stamps Black Licorice hybrid ink. I used Copic markers to color my images in and used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

For my “subtle” sky scene, I used the clouds stencils with my light blue inkpad, lightly sponging the color on the card stock.

 

For the frame, I used my MFT Stamps Blueprints No. 32. I also die-cut the birch trees with the Birch Trees dies, also by MFT then lightly colored it with my Copic markers to give it some dimension.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment “A Halloween Hello” with my memento fog ink.

 

Here’s my card:
