Breaking out of the Box

Print

Hi! Thanks for letting me join you again. I’ve really enjoyed being with you on these guest posts. For this post, I thought we’d look at different shaped projects. It’s easy to get into a rut of ‘square’ or ‘rectangular’ cards, so I thought I’d do fun shapes instead.

Handmade project from Keren Baker #mftstamps

Firstly – I created a round card blank using the cStitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX. I folded a piece of card stock and positioned it onto the circle die, with part of the folded edge pushed slightly below the cut edge so it avoids cutting some of the folded edge and therefore creates a shaped blank.

Handmade project from Keren Baker #mftstamps

I’ve added some gentle blending of ink into the centre of the card, but not to completely cover it. I stamped and die cut some of the flowers and leaves from the Build-able Bouquet. I’ve added colour with distress ink and sprayed some water to disperse a  little of the colour.

Handmade project from Keren Baker #mftstamps

I die cut the sentiment and added 3 colours of ink to create a slightly ombre look. I added a white layer behind it to give some depth. Sequins help give movement to the project too! If you have problems getting the card to stand still, just trim a little off the bottom to help stabilise it.

I bought a simple wooden plaque recently that needed a little prettying up. These flowers from the same set are perfect for making an easy home decor item.

Handmade project from Keren Baker #mftstamps

I coloured these flowers in with Prismacolor pencils, adding layers of colours and then added stitched detailing with my white gel pen. A smattering of sequins helps tie all the colours together. Keeping the background plain and not adding a different coloured hanging ribbon keeps the focus on the flowers. It would be equally as great adding in a sentiment to the plaque!

Handmade project from Keren Baker #mftstamps

I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects. I’ve loved sharing with you some ideas with all these wonderful My Favorite Things supplies!

Thanks for Bee-ing There

Hello MFT fans! This is Yana Smakula sharing my second project using a few goodies from My Favorite Things. You can check out my first card with mischievous black cats HERE.

Handmade card from Yana Smakula featuring Lisa Johnson Designs Fly-By Friends #mftstamps

Today I have a simple project with gorgeous blooms. I’ve always been a fan of cards with some type of wordplay, so for my card here I went with a fun Thanks for Bee-ing There sentiment. Naturally, I had to stamp, color and die cut quite a few bees.

I used the Fly-By Friends stamp set (which features a ton of fun wordplay sentiments) and Die-namics along with the Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX. I also incorporated one die-cut leaf created using the Bold Greenery Die-namics set and little hearts from the Stitched Strips Die-namics.

My images were stamped onto X-press It Blending Card Stock and colored using alcohol markers. The sentiment was heat embossed in black embossing powder and was foam mounted over the flowers for a bit of dimension.

Thanks so much MFT for having me this month, it’s been a pleasure!
