MFT WEDNESDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE 415



My card inspired by the new sketch:


Today my card features the sweet PI Butterfly Kisses set. 


To begin, I Copic colored the girl from the PI Butterfly Kisses and cut her out with the coordinating die. I used a white gel pen to add details on the wing as well as Star Dust Stickles for sparkle.


I trimmed patterned paper from the Petite Plaid Paper and adhered it to a top folding card base. Then, I adhered a die-cut white circle I made using a die from Starry Circle Die-namics on top of the plaid panel to fit the sketch.

To finish, I added the colored girl and the heat embossed sentiment to the card front as shown.



It's a fun sketch! I hope you'll play along with us. Visit the Card Challenges blog for more information on the sketch challenge and for inspiration from the participating design team members.

MFT AND FRIENDS - DECEMBER RELEASE

Hi there! The amazing MFT December release is now available for purchase HERE!


For my MFT and Friends project, I made a fun interactive sliding card that features the adorable Forever and Owlways set and the Leaping Slider Channels Die-namics.


To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Forever and Owlways stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used a thin white gel pen to add fur-like textures to the owls.


The front cloud panel was ink blended using the Cloud Stencil with Distress Oxides.


The grass panels were die-cut using the Grassy Hills Die-namics and ink blended with Distress Oxides as well. Once dried, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on the front glass panel.


To make this into an interactive slider card, I die-cut the front panel with one of the slider dies from the Leaping Slider Channels Die-namics. For a great video tutorial on how to use the slider die and make a similar card, you can watch  Karolyn's Youtube video for MFT HERE

Here's a quick video on the interactive fun:
