To kick off the year, we’re welcoming Anna Lorenzetto to the blog. Her clean and colorful style is a fresh, welcoming way to usher in another year.
Hi there and thanks for joining me today!
I’m Anna, and I’m so happy and honored to be a guest designer here on the MFT blog! I have a couple of projects to share with you today highlighting the amazing stamps and Die-namics from the MFT December Release.
My first card shows how you can stretch your Die-namics to create a colorful geometric pattern — just a fun way to add some interest to your designs.
I used the Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics to die cut several strips of colored card stock, and carefully aligned and glued them to a white card stock panel. I chose rainbow colors for this card, but you can use any color combination you like best.
I used the Hello, Beautiful stamp set and the coordinating Beautiful Die-namics to create the sentiment. I die cut the bold “beautiful” script out of white sparkle card stock and heat embossed the first part of the sentiment in white on black card stock.
Since I wanted to make the sentiment pop, I framed the focal point of my card with one of the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames and trimmed the colorful background down to fit within the frame.
Finally, I mounted the frame on a card base, previously “splattered” using the Distressed Patterns stamp set, and added some sparkling clear sequins as an embellishment.
For my second project, I used the amazing Bold Beautiful Die-namics. This gorgeous die can be used in many different ways, and I think it’s just perfect to create colorful eye-catching designs. I die cut the intricate “beautiful” word out of white card stock and colored it in rainbow colors using Copic markers.
Next, I heat embossed the leading sentiment, from the Hello, Beautiful stamp set, in white on a strip of green card stock, and foam mounted it in the middle of my card. Finally, I decided to add a cute little accent to my project from the Friends at First Sip stamp set. Seriously, how adorable is this furball friend? 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I’ll be back soon with some other projects to share with you! Happy crafting!
