MFT Camp Create 2019 Part Two

August 20th, 2019 klwade Posted in Crafts, MFT Camp Create No Comments »

Well i managed to do all 5 cards! Whooo Hooo

I have been working so late everyday it has been hard to get the cards done. But I did not want to lose the opportunity to win an awesome prize from My Favorite Things.

Well here we go.

For the first card is the Inlaid Made Easy. I had an idea to do a stripe pattern with paper and do the WISH die in the middle. The only problem I had was finding thin enough paper that coordinates.

The Next card was a masking card with a background stamp. I decided to do a deep navy with gold embossing masking the middle for the sentiment. Very simple, yet beautiful

Next is my Favorite…. The background is a bunch of jellyfish embossed with Fairy Dust Embossing Powder and smeared with glitter. Then of course the mermaid swimming by.

This ia a purple beauty. Nothing like purple to wish someone a birthday.

And Finally is the monochromatic card. I went with a simple monochromatic background with the cirle frame. Add a cute birthday bear and we are all set.

SSS Wednesday Challenge – Midsummer Blues

August 20th, 2019 klwade Posted in Crafts No Comments »

Nothing like a little cool summer time blues to make a great card. Jumping in on the SSS Wednesday Challenge using the blue cards I made this week. Actually I had made these cards for a different challenge and I feel kinda guilty, but they do have the blues in them.

To start a beautiful deep navy card with some masking to make a simple, yet gorgeaus Christmas card.

This is a teal blue ombre card with a little bear to wish you a happy birthday.

Now my favorite, the background of jellyfish with the mermaid swimming on by. There is so much glitter on the card that it just sparkles. Swim away darling and thanks for the love.

Finally is the WISH birthday card with just a hint of blues.

Thank you for looking at my cards.

MFT sketch challenge #449

August 12th, 2019 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Sketch Challenge No Comments »

Decided to take another shot at the MFT sketch Challenge since I just received my order in the mail.

I ordered the cute little squirrels. Anyone who knows me, knows I just love squirells. To some, they are furry rats, but to me that are cute whimsical critters with cute personalities. I once had a squirrel who lived in my backyard. I called him Mr. Beeve. He wasnt afraid of me and would sit on the edge of the bird feeder when I filled it with sunflower seeds. I was so tempted to touch him but decided to respect him. He use to have a partner and the two of them would chatter and chatter away. But sadly his girlfriend was killed by a car. So it was just me and Mr. Beeve for a long time.

The sketch this week looked easy but darn it, I did not have those great dies.

Maybe if I win, I can order them. So I made do with an older Blueprint set that had a half circle.

I had fun coloring these little guys while watching Season 4 of Outlander.

Inside is a cute little message. I never have enough birthday cards and I always forget to mail the cards out.

I decided to add this to the Simon Says Challenge since I am using a die cut.

MFT Weekly Sketch – 448

August 4th, 2019 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Sketch Challenge, Uncategorized No Comments »

I have been trying to make cards again and I need something to get me into the mood. Looking at the weekly sketches gives me ideas to take out those stamps, dies and copics.

This week the sketch is a simple one.

I decided to go thru my MFT stash and see what image would work great with this layout.

I selected this very cute set called Polynesian Paradise.

To compliment the set I used the Echo Park “Best Summer Ever” paperpack.

My final card is by far my favorite. I do love glitter.

I used a nice patterned paper and enhance it with a glitter Hello die with some jewels.

MFT Camp Create – Day 4 Sensational Sliders

July 24th, 2019 klwade Posted in MFT Camp Create No Comments »

I decided to make a Halloween themed card. I had just gotten this fun paper from Carta Bella and I wanted to make my bat girl fly.

She slides down over the Halloween Town.

Nothing like a bat girl flying over the town to scream Halloween.

MFT Camp Create – Day 3 Spectacular Shakers

July 24th, 2019 klwade Posted in MFT Camp Create No Comments »

I struggled making this card. It took 3 tries to finally get a card. I orginally used the A2 shaker pouches but it would not stick to the paper. Maybe if I had enough time to get it dry.

There is nothing more disheartening than having glitter spill all over the place. Ugh.

This picture dcoes not do it justice. The background is a wonderful pine green with a smattering of Tonic Nuvo glitter from the Merry & Bright collection.

MFT Camp Create – Day 2 Remarkable Resist

July 24th, 2019 klwade Posted in MFT Camp Create, Uncategorized No Comments »

For day 2 we were asked to do a remarkable resist card.

I decided that I wanted to use my Shimmer Powder over an embossed background stamped card.

I really like using the Tonic Nuvo shimmer powders. It is such a quick way to make a beautiful card.
