MFT Surprise Countdown Day 2....

Welcome to day 2 of the MFT Card Kit countdown which also doubles as a surprise countdown for the 'Witch Way to the Candy' re-release!

I have another card using the images that I colored up.


I used the witch, pumpkins, cat, clouds and moon on yesterdays card, so I decided that bat would looks so cute on a CAS card...

MFT Witch Way to the Candy?

I stamped the bat in white ink all over a light gray card stock.  Then I stamped a sentiment on a stitched banner die and added the bat to the banner.  I tucked in a little black glitter card stock below the banner and then attached the whole thing to the top of the card front.

MFT Surprise Countdown....

Hello crafty friends!  Today is a fun day over at MFT.  Today is the beginning of the monthly card kit countdown BUT....along with this months card kit, there is a new surprise release of the set called Witch Way is the Candy!  Just in time for halloween!

I did more coloring with new set than I ever have in the history of my card making!  I had to mix a little of my CAS, white space love, with a lot of Copic colored images and this is what I came up with....

MFT Witch Way to the Candy?

I stamped all the images out and started coloring and blending. I had so much fun with this set.  I am pretty proud of that cute little witch and her hat shadow.  This is big time shading done for my amateur copic skills.  Those pumpkins are so easy to color up and that cat?  So cute!  I really wanted these images to stand out, so I left the background white.  I added in the moon and the clouds and filled in some space with the perfect sentiment.

I used a new background stamp called Make Your Mark from the August Release to create this ombre monochromatic background all in pinks.

This card was not in the video, but just gives one more example on how you can create a monochromatic look with watercolor....

A quick and simple wash in the background can stretch that color out.

MFT Release Replay...

The August Release at My Favorite Things is a fun one!  The latest halloween set is adorable and makes me think.....where did the summer go?  For today's Release Replay, I have a card using the new set called    and I mixed it with the Stitched Collage Frame die.

August 2017 MFT

To create this card, I did a simple watercolor wash on watercolor paper.  Then I die cut that same panel with the Stitched Collage Frame.  I added the stitched from in black directly on to the black card base and then popped up the watercolor panels on foam tape for a dimensional card.  Last, I added in the spider web stamps, the ghosts and a heat embossed sentiment to finish it off.

A stencil and a hug!

I have been staring at this Radiating Rays stencil on my desk for a few days and finally found some time to pull it out.  If you haven't seen this amazing stencil, its from My Favorite Things and its a must have.

MFT Radiating Rays Hugs Card

I tape the stencil down to a piece of Bristol cardstock (from Hobby Lobby) and blended away.  I used the following inks in rainbow order...

Worn Lipstick
Candied Apple
Spiced Marmalade
Scattered Straw
Twisted Citron
Peacock Feathers
Dusty Concord.

After removing the stencil, I went back in a and blended in the white lines so the entire panel was covered in color.  Next, I took a Stitched Heart Stax die to cover up the center.  Then I added in the "sending hugs" die in white cardstock.  I love the white on white.  I popped the whole card front up on fun foam on to the card base.  And done!  :)

Hope you have enjoyed my rainbow creation.  Thanks so much for stopping in!
