Wish Big - MFTWSC221

Welcome back to my little blog here! It is slowly revitalizing itself. It has definitely been a long, cold and dreary winter and I am ready to experience pretty blue skies and colorful flowers!
With that, I made a card that deviates from my normal style! Where shall we start with the changes? Well how about the embossed clouds? I plunged into the world of embossing paste and I don't think I can ever go back again! Next, how about the flower colors? I don't think I would ever use anything other than green for leaves! Yet, I like how this turned out! 

 Here is a close-up of the focal image of the card. I also sprayed some of  MFT's Shimmer Mist Spray on the card, especially on the flower and leaves.

The frame was created by nesting the adorable Stitched tags from MFT (by far one of my most go-to item for cards and tags of course.). I layered one on top of the other for the window. The slightly wider portion on the bottom was intentional, because I wasn't sure if I was going to stamp a sentiment on there or not.

Thanks for stopping by!

I decided to play along with MFT's weekly sketch challenge.
I needed a little bit of art therapy and when I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to play with some recently acquired MFT goodies!

Here is my take on this week's MFT sketch:

Some more cards....

As the PTI celebration continues, I am trying to keep up and participate in some of the challenges.

Here are a few cards I made. Excuse the poor quality of photos, but I have only been photographing them at night and the lighting isn't the best. 

I am particularly fond of this trio of cards. Can you believe I ran the circle coverplate only once through the coverplate? I then used the negative pieces on the white and black cards. The actual cut out was used on the bottom card! I took advantage of the negative space of the Hello sentiment as well. It was used on both cards as you can see below! 

This last card showcases a blue ombre!

A Few Challenges!

Long time no blog, eh?

I made some time to participate in PTI's anniversary challenges! This post is going to be short and sweet and will focus on the cards only for the challenges!

I'm sorry I won't be providing details as time is limited, but I hope you get to enjoy what I made.

It has been quite over here for over four months, almost five. Life happens, kids happen, responsibilities, vacation, etc. All I know is I am not going to commit to a schedule for the time being and will be posting as I create my cards.

I really liked this week’s MFT sketch and played along.


I created my own background using the sentiment Watt’s Up from the LJD WATT’s UP stamp set. using Grout Grey ink.  I also went with a super bright color palette!

I cut out the circle using Blueprints 16 and the bulb from it’s respective die.



Pictured above is a close up of the die. This is how I assembled it.

- I cut out a bulb from white cardstock

- I cut out a piece of vellum slightly larger than the bulb and adhered it onto a large piece of redline tape adhesive and then ran it through the Big Shot. This way they vellum would already be adhered to the sticky sheet and I wouldn’t have to worry about placement.

- After the filament was cut in black I placed it on the stick side of the bulb.

- I layered the vellum portion of the bulb onto the previously cut white bulb and sandwiched everything. This was the filament peeks through, without having any of the other colors in the background.

- I finished assembling the rest of the bulb.



Stamps: LJD WATT’s UP stamp se

Dies: Blueprints 16 Lightbulb

Ink: Grout Grey, black
