Hello everyone! This month's Creative Challenge with MFT is to create with their stencils - of which there are a LOT to choose from! Make sure to check out their blog post for all the links to the other DT members playing along to see what they've come up with.
My first card has a video to accompany it as I did something similar on my last MFT challenge post and had a lot of requests to show how I did this die cut in a video. I used a different one this time, plus used a stencil instead of stamping - but the "technique" is the same (it's really easy).
I used the new Circle Grid Stencil along with 6 different MFT dye inks to create the pattern for this card. Then it was just a matter of die-cutting the sentiment and adhering the bottom part with foam tape.
I finished off the inside by sponging over the stencil again with the same inks then stamping the word "birthday" from the Happy Everything stamp set.
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
I made a second card with the same inks since I had them all sitting out, but this time I mixed them with some white embossing paste and scraped them over the Scattered Bars Stencil.
I die cut the scribbles from some silver foil card stock and adhered the 2 larger ones before adhering the "happy" die cut from Black Licorice card stock.
On the inside I sponged the same ink colors over the Scattered Bars stencil just to tie it all together, and stamped another sentiment from the Happy Everything stamp set and that was it!
