Hey, Gullfriend! Color Throwdown Challenge #477

CTD477_2018jan24

Hey everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lori is our hostess today and she’s brought us a fun color palette base on her fun inspiration piece.

Lori’s inspiration piece has snowmen but I’m ready for some warmer temperatures, how about you? I went to the seaside with my card this week using Seaside Seagulls Stamp Set and Die-namics and built a scene around them, sponging my sunset background for starters.

My big ol’ orange setting sun was cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 4, I added Cloud 9 Die-namics and Ocean Waves Die-namics, popped up on foam for dimension, to fill it out.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD477 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd477 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented Guest Designer, Debra James, who is going to stay with us through January!

What a fun kit is this!! For today’s card I brought out all the confetti! As in Celebratory Confetti Die-namics, which is included in the kit. To begin, I cut another YAY from Sweet Tooth card stock and created a shaker element with it. I used Heat Resistant Acetate, foam tape, and Fantasia Sparkly Shaker Mix for the filler.

Next I cut lots of confetti using Gold Shine card stock and some red and black shiny card stock from my stash to coordinate with the shaker filler. To further coordinate, I added some tiny stars cut with Tag Builder Blueprints 6 cut from Silver Shine card stock and Sparkling Clear Mix Sequins.

Here’s a different view so you can see the red and black confetti better. The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and popped up on foam.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Yay for You Card Kit. See you soon!

Yay–A New Baby! MFT January Card Kit, Yay for You Countdown Day Two

cardkitday2_2018jan23

Hi, all! So, what do you think of this month’s kit? Super fun and so versatile, right? The Design Team had some samples for you yesterday and there’s more to come today so be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details. Release is tonight at 9pm Eastern, so make a note!

I often look to sentiments to give me inspiration for a card and that’s exactly what I did for this card. To begin, I adhered a watercolored panel to my card base then popped up the two white panels after dry embossing them with Cloudy Day Stencil. I cut the Yay from Silver Sparkle card stock and popped it up on foam, spanning the watercolored panel.

Next I cut the little dress from Tiny Checks Brights patterned paper and “hung” it on a hanger cut from White Birch Wood Adhesive backed sheet and hooked it on the die cut sentiment. To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment on Peach Bellini card stock cut with Hearts in a Row – Vertical Die-namics, scattered around some Sparkling Clear Mix sequins, and called it done!

And that’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tonight for Release!

For my card today, I started by applying a watercolor wash on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors then stamped Distressed Patterns with Delicata Gold ink. Next I cut one of the YAY dies from the kit and embossed the stitch line that comes with the banner set. Then I adhered a panel of paper stamped with Happy Birthday Background behind the cut out letters and popped the whole thing up on foam on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

The sentiment was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with a die from Hearts in a Row – Vertical Die-namics and popped up on foam. To finish off I added some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops. Tip: create Nuvo drops ahead of time on a non-stick surface and adhere with glue when dry.

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!

Brand New MFT Challenge—Birthday Project Challenge!

birthdaychallengecelebrate_2018jan18

Hi, everyone, welcome to a brand new challenge at MFT! Today we have the very first Birthday Project Challenge! Let’s celebrate the advent of our brand-new challenge by focusing on the word “celebrate.” Incorporate the stamped or die-cut word into your birthday card design and leave no question as to the mood of your greeting! All of the details about the Birthday Project Challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I absolutely love this die! Love the font, love the size, love everything about it! It’s perfect for ushering in this new challenge! I started by dry embossing Star Celebration Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock, then popped it up on the Sweet Tooth card base with foam tape. Next I added some Black & White Stripes Patterned Paper—addicted to it—and the partial sentiment from Big Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock.

birthdaychallengecelebrate_2018jan18b

Next I use Copic markers to create my rainbow swatch and cut Celebrate Die-namics from it along with Sweet Tooth card stock twice. I adhered them together for strength and then to the card front. I finished off with a bunch of Silver Sparkle card stock stars cut from Blueprints 13 and Tag Builder Blueprints 5.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
