Hey everyone! Well this release just flew by - I thought I was doing pretty good keeping up with it all and then realized my Release Rewind post had to go live TONIGHT and not tomorrow night. Good thing I double-checked - I've got my days of the week messed up - which tends to happen when I don't get out of the house very much lately with the weather we've been having! Speaking of which we're getting a ton of snow right now (oh joy... *sarcasm*) so it looks like I'll be home-bound for a while again....
Anywho I've got a couple more cards to share with you guys using more of the new February products from MFT. And make sure you head on over to the MFT blog post here for the links to the other DT members to see their RR posts as well!
Here's the first card I made:
When I started this card I wasn't planning on making it into a birthday card, but as I got going I thought it was looking pretty cool and that it would work perfect for my oldest daughter's birthday which is coming up soon.
I used the new Zipper Die-namics (which I think have already sold out on the MFT site! But you can click to have it notify you when it's back in stock) and the new Cheetah Background stamp to create this funky card.
I used the new Little Lowercase Letters Die-namics to spell out her name, and the Little Letters for the capital V. I LOVE these alphabet sets - they're the perfect size for cards.
The lip charm was cut with the Zipper Die-namics and then coated with a layer of Clear Wink of Stella then I added a thick coat of Glossy Accents and left to dry before tying it to the zipper pull with some white hemp cord.
The hb2u was done with more Little Lowercase Letters and the Little Numbers Die-namics sets. Those and the white letters were also coated with some Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer!
Then to finish off the inside of the card I used half of the Zipper Die-namics, leaving the rest of the inside plain so that we've got room to write something. I added another Razzle Berry "flag" (I used the flag die from the Blueprints 12 set) with the number 11 in white. I can not believe she's going to be 11! ACK!
Anywho on to card #2:
Suzy's released another Sunny Day Doodles set - Borders & Accents with - you guessed it - fun little borders and hand drawn accents done in her signature hand drawn style.
I stamped a sentiment from her Be Your Best Self set onto Kraft card stock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used my Inktense pencils to color it in. I then went over that with my waterbrush (lightly as it's not watercolor paper and it can warp *really* easily).
I used 3 stamps from the Borders & Accents to "frame" the sentiment - and of course it all looks like it was made that way.
I used one of the scalloped stamps on the Sour Apple card stock with Sour Apple ink to create the "patterned paper", then used the dot line stamp again to stamp all around the card base and colored those in with the Inktense pencils and my waterbrush.
I even went so far to add my own little "doodles" with my POSCA white paint pen around 2 of the corners on the Sour Apple card stock, then added in some highlights and whatnot on the main image b/c I always love how it just *pops* on the Kraft.
Finally on the inside of the card I stamped another sentiment from the Be Your Best Self stamp set in black and then stamped the same scalloped border stamp I used on the front of the card in the Sour Apple ink and that was it!
