MFT Snow Globe Card Kit--Day 2

It's Day 2 of the Snow Globe Card Kit Countdown! This fun kit will go on sale
tomorrow, September 19th at 9PM EST in the MFT Store!

Today I'll be sharing a card using other MFT products together with the kit.

The scalloped rectangle panel from Blueprints 27 was adhered to a
Blueberry card base. The snow globe dome shape was cut from watercolor
card stock and ink distressed to resemble a snowy night sky. The snowy 
ground was adhered to the dome, then adhered to the card.

Three Bitty Bears were colored, cut, and adhered to the dome. The sentiment was
 white embossed on a strip of Blueberry card stock and adhered beneath the bears.

Visit today's Card Kit post at My Favorite Things for more ideas
from the Creative Team and get ready to purchase your kit tomorrow!

MFT Snow Globe Card Kit--Day 1

If you love snow globes, you'll love this month's card kit from My Favorite Things
which makes a Snow Globe right on your card! Here's a peek at the fun kit. Be sure to
visit today's post at My Favorite Things for a detailed description of the kit's contents.

Here's today's card which was fun to put together.

I cut out the snow globe dome on a rectangle panel that was cut with BP 24.
The piece was cut again from watercolor card stock and ink distressed, then
spattered with water. I added more "snow" with a white Gelly Roll pen.

The snowman was cut from white card stock and I inked around the edges
to give him some dimension. His face and "buttons" were cut and backed with
small pieces of black card stock. I adhered his carrot nose, twiggy arms, and
scarf, then adhered him to the dome. Trees were cut from Sour Apple card stock
and inked to give them dimension.

Diamond Dust was added to the plastic dome, and the snow globe was assembled
over the card base. The white embossed sentiment finished off the card.

CAS(E) this Sketch #239

Ready for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch? Here's Sketch #239, courtesy of yours truly.

And here's my take on it.

I pretty much stuck to the sketch, thanks to this Pure Innocence sunbather.
A small piece of watercolor card stock was ink distressed for the "water" and the
girl was adhered to it. The sentiment was white embossed on a banner strip and
the card was finished off with enamel dots.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, September 21st.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT September Release Replay

It's time for My Favorite Things September Release Replay when the 
Creative Team shares more inspiration and ideas with the latest release.

Here's my project using the Pop Up Alphabet Die-namics.

Before cutting the alphabet apart, I had a "Kelly Griglione" moment and thought about 
using the dies while they were still intact. After die cutting the entire alphabet (plus
the ampersand) from watercolor card stock, I flipped it over and taped down each
row because I knew I was going to ink distress over the letters.

I inked up watermelon colors using Distress inks, then spattered some water over it.
I cut out the "HI" from black card stock and adhered it over the letters on the
inked panel and used the Misti to stamp the second part of the sentiment.
Black Nuvo drops finished off the card as watermelon seeds.

Visit today's Release Replay post for more inspiration from participating
team members. Thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch #238

Teammie Leigh brings us a sweet sketch and you know that flowers will
be involved! Here's CAS(E) this Sketch #238.

And here's my take on it.

Julie Ebersole's Mondo Hydrangea came to the rescue because I knew that I
wanted to use flowers but couldn't decide which ones to use. (Plus this was in
my stash of diecuts--how convenient is that?)

I adhered it to a Stone Gray card base and because it's peeking out from the top
a skosh, I trimmed the bottom of the card so it could still fit in an A2 envie.
Two blooms were added for some dimension. I stamped the sentiment,
rounded off the bottom corner and finished off with sequins.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted
Leigh's sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday,
September 14th. Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #349

Here's what I came up with.

A piece of woodgrain card stock was trimmed and adhered to a white card base.
Three monsters were inked and cut with the matching dies, then framed on the
card. I added the white embossed sentiment and finished the card with enamel dots.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for all the details and deadline and join the challenge!
A random winner will win a $50 MFT gift voucher and it could be YOU! Hope to
see you in the gallery!

It's time! You may now purchase MFT's September Release here in the MFT Store!
Remember to comment on all design team members' blogs for a chance to win
one of two $100 MFT gift vouchers!

Before you go, I'd like to share one more project with you using the Grateful
stamp set and a water stenciled background.

I ink distressed several colors on watercolor card stock, liberally sprayed the Funky 
Florals stencil with water, then pressed it down on the inked surface. I pressed down
on the stencil with a paper towel to absorb water that seeped through. I left it on for
a few seconds, then lifted up the stencil to reveal the "bleached" image.

After the piece was dried, I used the Mod Rectangle STAX to cut it out and adhered
it to a Cement Gray card base. I stamped the two part sentiment and finished off
the card with a few sequins.
