A Birthday Flyby Card - 2017 MFT Superstar Card Contest Entry


I made it with one day to spare, phewww... now I can relax!

I am back today with the third and final card that I created for the  the My Favorite Things 2017 Superstar Card Contest. This one will be entered into the Coloring Virtuoso Category, which for me I feel was my biggest challenge as I'm still figuring out how to color with using all my coloring supplies.

I love all things rainbow, so I started off with blending my background and then built my scene using a variety of images from some of my stamp sets. The idea I had was to make it look like these magical MFT cuties would be found at the end of the rainbow. Hopefully I was able to pull it off 😉

To create the clusters of my stamped images I had to do a ton of masking, lots of fussy cutting and paper piecing. I colored my images using Zig Clean Color Brushes and used prismacolor pencils for shading. Really hard to capture on a picture but there is also a lot of sparkle as I used wink of stella on many of the elements.

The Dragon is also popped onto an action wobbler, to add a little bit of interaction. On the bottom right you notice the girl is holding a string of flowers because I had a super hard time cutting the stamped string of flowers. So instead I thought it would be cute to add some flower sequins on twine. To the center of the flowers I added some nuvo yellow drops. All these little details took a long time but I am really happy with the colorful results!

Here is a closer look.

I didn't have a banner die for my sentiment, so I just created one using my cutting board and scissors to cut out the tail. To make it look like the Corgi was holding the banner with his mouth, I pierced the spot right under his mouth fished the wire through and curled up the end.

I didn't film a process video for this card as I knew I would not have time to edit it before the deadline. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions, I would be happy to help you. Check out the links below for all the supplies I used in todays card. 

Here is a very short clip to see it in action.

This was definitely a challenge! Thank goodness I had a few days off from the hospital, or I don't think I would of been able to pull off all three cards! So much fussy cutting I think I may need bifocals now 😲 Well I'm off to clean my crafty mess now... till next time!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Beautiful Friend Card - 2017 Superstar Card Contest Entry


Hello again my beautiful friends!!!

Yes, I am back today with another card that I created for the  the My Favorite Things 2017 Superstar Card Contest this one will be entered into the Clean and Simple Genius Category. 

I'm not sure about you all but I love succulents, so I just had to use the Sweet Succulent set to create this hanging terrarium.  It was actually my very first ever MFT stamp set and I still love it!

You also probably don't recognize the terrarium die either... well that maybe because I used the abstract heart to create it! Clever right!? Well... at least I thought so 😆
