MFT New Best Friend – October Use My Stuff Challenge

Photo Oct 12, 9 29 16 AM

I consider this card a bit of a self-portrait – me holding our lab Finn (who is too big to be holdable now but, you know, artistic license) and our cat Ginger (making her “what the heck is that?” face).

I don’t usually go for the “all over” scene card front (love them when other people do it but mine always look too busy).  This one I am good with!

The little sprigs of grass were just made by flicking a Copic marker – for sure, the most stressful part of making the card.

MFT Best in Show – October Use My Stuff Challenge

Get ready for a dog filled day!  These Best In Show stamps from My Favorite Things had been on my wish list so I was really happy to receive them in our swag bag at Junkie Fest this year!

After coloring and die cutting all of the images, I used post-it tape and oxide inks to create a blended little home for each scene.

MFT Weather Any Storm – October Use My Stuff Challenge

Photo Oct 16, 7 48 04 PM

This one couldn’t be any easier!  I just used the Rainy Circle Die-namics for a quick focal point.  A dark gray circle behind it gives the raindrops some contrast.

The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things Freebie stamp set but any “rainy” themed sentiment would work here.

The card was finished with a little pop of green.  You could also try moving the sentiment down and adding a little critter but this design can be finished in minutes!

My Favorite Things Dragons and Unicorns – October Use My Stuff Challenge

Photo Oct 12, 9 32 26 AM

Using up the rest of my “mythical” creatures today!

That baby dragon is probably my favorite image from the BB Magical Dragons set!  Who knew a dragon could be so cute!  The background is a negative cut from the Stitched Arch Stax Die-namics set.  Such a great set for creating a mini scene on a card front.

Anything I can put on a rainbow is good in my book so let’s finish today with a unicorn!

After using the Mini Cloud Edges stencil (along with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink) to create the background, I added the rainbow and Copic colored unicorn.  The sentiment is added to a panel created with a Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border die.

One of the fun things about concentrating on a particular manufacturer is seeing combinations of sets that you might not have ever thought of.  This is one of those cards that came together from all of the random stuff on my desk – I love those!

But the “clouds” are my favorite part – they are actually made from the tree portion of the Interactive Swing Die-namics.

I cut it from white cardstock and used a post it note to mask each of the cut outs while I ink blended with a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink.  Lots of possibilities here – clouds, dirt, hills – and the die gives you an automatic little spot to tuck in images!

MFT Magical Dragons Birthday Card – October Use My Stuff Challenge

IMG_8101

Happy World Card Making Day and welcome back to another installment of the Use My Stuff Challenge – if you missed my last post, I’m trying to use all of my MFT products this month.

The BB Magical Dragon set from MFT is one that my daughter picked out.  It may not have been one that I would have normally put in my cart but I love it!  Just goes to show how fun it can be to leave your comfort zone every now and then!

For this card, I masked off a center column and used Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink along with the stencil to create a background panel.  After I colored and die cut the images, I added them to the card front with foam adhesive.

The banner and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn – I thought they provided the perfect little “ground” for my images.  And a purple banner seemed kind of regal, don’t you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
