AI Hugs

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share this sweet card with you guys. Valentine’s Day is coming up but I think this could be used anytime of the year, really. Check it out-

I used an awesome stamp from Art Impressions as my focal point. I colored that adorable couple up with Copics and fussy cut it out. A fun plaid paper and die cut window sentiment finished this card off.

I love adding adding patterned paper to cards that are still CAS. Keeping the paper use in small amounts and using interesting angles really makes an impact in my opinion.

I also used the current cue card over at CASology as inspiration.

Double Awesome

Hey everyone! I have a pair of cards to share today! They’re pretty much the same design so I thought I’d share them together. Check them out-

I started by ink blending with 4 Distress Inks on each panel. Then I ran them through with an embossing folder to give them amazing texture and dimension. Then I die cut a scripty “awesome” die with some black cardstock to use as the sentiment on top of a strip of vellum and glitter paper. I’m not sure if “awesome” is really a full sentiment but I didn’t know what else to add and I loved the design as is.

I used the color challenge from YNS as inspiration. This die is the only YNS product I have, and it cut sooo nicely I’m definitely going to try to get more!

I don’t have any kind dies or stamps so I figured this happiness sentiment would do. I love the cheerful messege.

I started by ink blending 3 colors of Distress Ink onto the card front in a geometric stripey fashion. Then I stamped the sentiment.

This is a very simple design but I really like how it turned out.

A Foxy Thank You

Hi guys! I’m back with a CAS thank you card. Check it out-

D77FCA0E-659C-4D30-B85C-5819E17118A8.jpeg

I started by doing some masked ink blending with a cloud stencil and Distress Ink. Then I added a Copic colored fox from Newton’s Nook and a sentiment fom MFT.

I love the look of this CAS card. I’ll be using this design for future projects. Here’s the color inspiration for this card.

Valentine’s Day?

Hey everyone! I guess Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…so here’s the first and probably only Valentine I’ll make for this year!

I used MFT’s Written in Watercolor for the white heat embossed heart pattern. They’re really fun and all unique. The set has really cool  sentiments as well that I find myself using quite often on the inside of cards. The sentiment on this card comes from a Maple & Ink set from last year.

Heres the sketch I used as inspiration.

Hey everyone!! I have 3 supercool projects to share for the Superstar challenge at MFT! There are 3 categories this year and here’s my entry for each-

CAS-

For my clean and simple design I chose to go with MFT’s classic chef image from Recipe for Happiness. The brick background Stamp was a perfect backdrop for him.

 

Interactive-

Polar Bear pals are perfect for slider cards! This bear skates back and forth across the sentiment strip backed by a MFT background Stamp white heat embossed onto gray card stock.

 

Coloring Virtuoso-

There aren’t many images I don’t enjoy coloring from MFT. But one of my all time favorites are these adorable mice from Harvest Mouse. I actually made a tag with four of the mice but this guy is my favorite. I colored him with Copics and added him to a teeny tiny card using a tag builders set. I love mini cards!

Thanks for stopping by and if there’s still time make sure to enter the challenges!! MFT is generously giving away over $4000 in prizes, showing just what a kind and thoughtful company they are! Thanks for the chance MFT!!

World’s Best Teacher

Hey, guys! I have a really awesome card to share with you today! This one might be my favorite card I’ve made ever, I love everything about it! I got inspiration from CASology and CTD-

I figured these challenges would pair well together since red, black, and white are both my high school colors and my college colors! So making a teacher card with them would be fun!

I staryed by stamping and coloring one of the cutest little mice from Harvest Mice by MFT on some grey cardstock from Paper Trey Ink. I’ve never colored on grey paper but it turned out really cool! Then I did some inlaid die cutting with a die from Sugar Pea Designs. Some MFT striped paper and PPP sewuins finished it off!
