Hello, Friend

Gayatri

Hello dear crafter, I am back one last time. I hope you have enjoyed my projects using the awesome June release from My Favorite Things! I have a couple more cards to share with you today.

My first card is a see-through window shaker card. I was inspired by Kimberly Crawford’s Peek-a-Boo Birch window card, so I wanted to recreate it with my own twist. My twist is to add a shaker component to the window!

Handmade card from Gayatri Murali featuring Sweet Forest Friends stamp set and Die-namics, Wonky Stitched Rectangle, Birch Trees, Stitched Valley, and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

I started by making the window shaker element for the card. I die cut the Birch Trees from Smooth White Card Stock and sponged them with distress ink to give them a more realistic birch tree look. Next, I die cut two frames using two Wonky Stitched Rectangles Die-namics and Kraft Card Stock. I adhered a clear acetate sheet behind one of the frames then the birch trees die cuts behind the acetate. I also adhered a couple of birds from the Sweet Forest Friends set that I had stamped, colored, and die cut on the front of the card. I added acetate behind the second frame as well.

Now it was time to assemble the window shaker. I started with a Kraft card base, and then I die cut a window on the card front using the Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics. I adhered the birch tree panel I created on the card front using foam tape, added the beads behind the panel, and attached the second frame with acetate behind it. I love this. So cool!

I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Forest Friends on Smooth White Card Stock, die cut it using Blueprints 29, and adhered it using foam tape. For some added sparkle, I added some Rose Gold sequins.

On the inside of the card, I die cut a Wonky Stitched Rectangle from Smooth White Card Stock, and sponged it with distress ink to create the background. Then I die cut the Stitched Valley Die-namics from Sour Apple Card Stock, sponged it with distress inks, and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. Next, I stamped, colored, die cut, and adhered four of the animals from the Sweet Forest Friends stamp set. The Birch Trees Die-namics comes with little leaves, so I die cut a bunch of them from Smooth White, sponged autumn colors on them using distress inks, and adhered them randomly on the landscape. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Forest Friends on the top of this panel using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

My second card also features the Sweet Forest Friends stamp set but in a different way.

To begin with, I cut a panel from watercolour paper using the Stitched Rectangle Die-namics. I masked a large portion on the bottom of the panel and smaller portions on the sides with masking tape. I stamped the images from the Sweet Forest Friends stamp set using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink starting with the largest image of deer, then the fox followed by the bunnies, and then filled in the gaps with the birdies and butterflies. I made sure some of the images on the sides stamped over onto the masking tape. I coloured the images and the background using Zig Clean Brush watercolour pens. Once dry, I removed the masking tape, and adhered the panel on a Berrylicious card base. The sentiment is white heat embossed on Black Licorice strip of card stock and adhered using foam tape. I embellished using Sparkling Clear sequins.

I hope you have been inspired by my cards today. I thoroughly enjoyed working with these gorgeous new products, and I am very grateful to have been given an opportunity to guest design for My Favorite Things. Thank you very much for having me. I am a big fan of MFT always.

Creative Construction with Blueprints – A Stitch in Time

MFT_CreativeConstruction_SideBar

We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to either assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches or design an original card combining elements from the featured Blueprints.

Did you know you can find ALL of our printable Blueprints sketches in one spot? Our Printable Resources section over there in the sidebar is packed with handy reference materials including Blueprints.

We hear you – you love stitched elements. Die-namics that feature this hand-sewn detail are always a hit. Our line of Blueprints Die-namics includes an endless variety of stitches – from layering pieces to dynamic shaped borders, we’ve got a little bit of everything. This month, we’ve challenged our team to showcase innovative ways of incorporating stitched accents into their projects.

Handmade card from Julie Dinn featuring Birdie Brown Hog Heaven stamp set and Blueprints 2 and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

Julie used both Blueprints 2 and Blueprints 29 to create this super cute and funny card! Those little openings are great for cute images and sentiments like the ones from our Hog Heaven stamp set. And I love the jaunty angle of the focal point! So fun!

Handmade card from Torico featuring Birdie Brown Recipe for Happiness stamp set and Die-namics and Blueprints 27 #mftstamps

Blueprints 27 has lots of stitching and spots to fill with any matter of delightful sentiments and images. Torico found several lost shakers of salt and featured them in whimsical shaker squares in this fun design! The large rectangle from this set also features stitches around the perimeter along with sweet scallops.

We’re not done yet – keep on clicking to see how others on our team interpreted this month’s challenge.

Let’s take a look at what MFT Guest Designer Gayatri Murali has in store for us today!

Gayatri

Hello crafty friends!

Welcome back to day two. I hope you got inspired by my projects yesterday. Today I have a couple more cards to share using the Fun in the Sun and Straight to the Point stamp sets.

First up is a card using the Fun in the Sun stamp set.

I started by stamping and colouring the images from the Fun in the Sun stamp set, and then I cut them each by hand because I don’t have the matching Die-namics. I used one of the flowers from the Sweet Forest Friends stamp set to stamp and add pattern to the girl’s bathing suit.

For the background, I trimmed two pieces of watercolour paper to the size of the card front. I sponged distress inks on both the watercolour panels. Next, I spattered clean water on both of them and dabbed the water off with a cloth to get texture on the panels. One panel I adhered on a Smooth White card base, and then I ran the second panel through my die cut machine using the Oval Shadows Die-namics.  I adhered these oval shadows randomly to achieve waves and extra dimension, as well as texture to the card front. I brushed clear shimmer on them using the Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen.

I adhered the images from the Fun in the Sun stamp set using foam adhesive, and the sentiment is simply stamped on a strip of Smooth White card stock, which I trimmed and then adhered. Finally, I embellished the design with sequins.

My second card also has a sponged background using distress inks and showcases the Straight to the Point stamp set.

Again, I started by stamping the image from the Straight to the Point stamp set using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and coloured it with markers. Then I die cut the image using the coordinating Die-namics.

For the background, I trimmed Smooth White card stock to the size of the card front, and then I used the Sun Ray stencil, masked the bottom part of the stencil, and sponged distress inks as shown. Next, I die cut a stitched rectangle out of the panel and adhered the entire background to the card front with the frame adhered directly to the card base and the stitched panel adhered with foam tape.

To complete the design, I adhered the image on the centre of the sponged sun rays and grounded her using  markers. I stamped the sentiment around the image using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and embellished with clear sequins.

That’s all for today. Hope you got inspired by my cards showcasing two different Pure Innocence stamp sets. Thanks for stopping by!

Oink!

Today we are welcoming Gayatri Murali to our blog as an MFT Guest Designer. We think you’ll like what she has to offer! Let’s take a look at Gayatri’s inventive takes on some of the new products from our June release.

Gayatri

Hello everyone,

This is Gayatri with you today. Most of you know me from my blog Handmade By G3 or as ScrapawayG3. I live in Perth, Australia, and I’ve been papercrafting for more than ten years.

I am super thrilled to be guesting for the My Favorite Things Blog for the next couple of days. I literally danced upon reading the invitation. I’m a big fan of MFT designs and love their releases every month, so a big THANK YOU for giving me the opportunity.

Today I am sharing a couple of cards with you. The first design is a flop card using the Flop Card – Oval Die-namics and the Hog Heaven stamp set and Die-namics from the June release. The second card showcases the Grateful for You stamp set, Blueprints 29, and Trees in the Forest Die-namics all from the June Release.

Let’s take a look at the flop card first.

Handmade card from Gayatri Murali featuring Birdie Brown Hog Heaven stamp set and Die-namics, Small Brick Background stamp, Flop Card - Oval, Stitched Snow Drifts, Oval Shadows, and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

I created a side open card base with Primitive Cream card stock. On the entire card base, including the insides and back of the card, I stamped the Small Brick Background stamp using Natural Premium Dye Ink. I sponged distress inks on the edges on all four sides of the card base, and then I used the Flop Card – Oval Die-namics to make the flop card front.

I stamped all the images (some twice) from the Hog Heaven stamp set on Smooth White card stock with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, and then I coloured them all with markers. Using the coordinating Die-namics, I die cut them and then die cut a few of the Oval Shadows Die-namics using Whip Cream Card Stock. Next, I sponged the edges with distress inks.

For the focal point on the card front, I die cut the stitched oval die from the Flop Card  – Oval Die-namics using Whip Cream Card Stock and then sponged distress inks on the edges and centre of the oval. To create the landscape layers, I used Sour Apple Card Stock and the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and sponged distress ink on them. Then I layered them on the oval die cut and trimmed off the overhang with scissors. Next, I adhered the oval shadow, two potted flowers, and the dancing hog using foam tape, and then I stamped oink using black ink and adhered the finished oval to the front of the flop element.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment on Whip Cream card stock using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, die cut it using one of the dies from Blueprints 29, applied distress inks to the edges, and adhered it to the card front.

Handmade card from Gayatri Murali featuring Birdie Brown Hog Heaven stamp set and Die-namics, Small Brick Background stamp, Flop Card - Oval, Stitched Snow Drifts, Oval Shadows, and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

For the focal point on back of the swing element, I did a similar process except I used the fence image, the hog with the heart, and few of the tiny flowers. Next, I stamped the sentiment on Whip Cream Card Stock using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and die cut it using one of the flags from Blueprints 29. Finally, I adhered the finished oval to the back side of the flop element.

For the inside of the card, I die cut the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 29 from Whip Cream Card Stock, sponged distress ink on the edges, and adhered it on the inside of the card. Then I adhere a few more images from the Hog Heaven stamp that I had coloured with markers and die cut. Finally, I embellished the card with Rose Gold sequins.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card! It was totally outside the box for me as I generally do not make such detailed cards. A bit of adventure, but I love how it turned out.

My second card also has an element which is outside the box.

On a Smooth White Card Stock base I stamped the bold Grateful sentiment from the Grateful for You stamp set using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I was able to double stamp the sentiment and get even coverage using the MISTI. Next, I die cut the rectangle frame layer from rose gold glitter paper using Blueprints 29 and adhered it on the card front with foam adhesive.

Handmade card from Gayatri Murali featuring Grateful for You stamp set, Trees in the Forest and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

The big bold flower was created using the Trees in the Forest Die-namics. I die cut five small pointed trees, eleven large pointed trees, one small and large oval tree, and five large scalloped trees using smooth white card stock. Next, I sponged distress inks on all of them and then generously applied clear shimmer.

Handmade card from Gayatri Murali featuring Grateful for You stamp set, Trees in the Forest and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

I used the large oval die cut as the base for the flower and started gluing the largest pointed tree as the largest petals of the flower, slightly overlapping them while gluing them down. The next layer is the large scalloped tree die cuts and the inner layer is the small pointed tree die cuts with the small oval as the centre of the flower. For the leaves, I simply clustered and adhered three large pointed tree die cuts. The flower and leaves are adhered on the card front using foam adhesives for added dimension.

The secondary sentiment from Grateful for You stamp set is stamped on Smooth White card stock using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, trimmed, and adhered using foam adhesive. Finally, the card is embellished with Rose Gold sequins.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today. I have a few more to share with you tomorrow and on the 29th. Thanks for stopping by today!

Sending You Sunshine

We’re welcoming Maria Peters to our blog again as an MFT Guest Designer. We think you’ll like what she has to offer! Let’s take a look at what Maria has created with some of the exciting products from our June release.

Maria Peters

Hello Crafty Friends,

I’m so happy to be back at the My Favorite Things blog with three cards to celebrate the June release.

For my first card I used the lovely Sweet Forest Friends stamp set to build my own storybook.

To begin, I die cut a watercolor panel six times with the Inside & Out Stitched Square STAX Die-namics to create my own frame. Then I stamped the images from the Sweet Forest Friends stamp set on the negatives with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I watercolored all pieces with my Peerless Watercolors and distress inks.

Next, I mounted the frame on the white card base using dimensional foam tape and adhered the watercolored negatives in each square using double sided tape.

I die cut two banners from white card stock using Blueprints 25 and stamped the sentiments with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. Finally, I embellished the card with a few clear sequins.

For my second design my idea was to share a vacation photo on my card.

I die cut the Polaroid Cover-Up Die-namics from white card stock and distressed it with Natural Premium Dye Ink Pad using a little applicator to create an aged look.

Next, I die cut the Fun in the Sun Die-namics from watercolor card stock and then stamped them with Fun in the Sun stamp set using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I watercolored all of the pieces using Peerless Watercolors.

On the negative portion cut from the Polaroid Cover-Up Die-namics, I created a beach scene with a turquoise ocean and breakers.

I die cut a banner from Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. And then to finish the card I mounted all elements as shown to a white card base using dimensional foam tape. The very last step was to embellish with a few sequins.

For my third card I couldn’t resist using the amazing Sweet Forest Friends stamp set and Die-namics again. It’s such a cute set, and I am totally in love with.

Using the brand new Flop Card – Rectangle Die-namics and Kraft Card Stock, I created my card base, and then I die cut and stamped the images from the Sweet Forest Friends set on white card stock with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.

Next, I die cut the Stitched Valley Die-namics three times, the large rectangle from Blueprints 29 once, and the stitched rectangle from the Flop Card – Rectangle Die-namics once from watercolor paper and watercolored these five pieces with Peerless Watercolors and distress inks.

I mounted the little scene on the front of the card using dimensional foam tape, mounted the larger scene on the inside using dimensional foam tape, and then adhered both scenes on the front and inside. For the inside of the flop portion, I die cut the stitched piece from the Flop Card Rectangle Die-namics on white card stock and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink using my MISTI before adhering it.
