Just “Bee-cause” Card with MFT!

Sunday, February 16th, 2020

Happy Sunday and welcome back! Laurie here with you this morning to share a cute card made using stamps and dies from My Favorite Things!

I don’t know about you but January and February are usually slow buying months for me. I haven’t made many crafty purchases as I’m patiently waiting for the next Lawn Fawn release (preorder going on NOW!!!). So, until then, I’m going through my stash and using some of my favourite, older products from MFT.

One of my all time fave sets is the Rustic Wildflowers Stamps and co-ordinating dies. This is one of my go-to sets when I just want to do some stamping. It’s a simple, floral layering set that always inspires me. I stamped a bunch of the flowers and leaves with inks from the Gina K Designs 2018 Assortment, Spring and Summer Assortment of ink cubes. These have quickly become my most set used of inks!

I decided to add a couple of super cute bees from the Meant To Bee Stamp Set. I thought these sweet, little faces were the perfect addition to this card.  I lightly inked up a white card panel with some blue ink to layer on the card base. After playing around with the arrangement, I decided that all the elements were getting lost in the blue. This is where I decided to add the circle in the corner. To jazz it up a bit, I used my scoring board to add some simple lines to the circle.

It just so happened that the sentiment fit perfectly in between the scored lines!  I added the floral and bees with a combo of foam and liquid adhesive onto the partial circle. I foam mounted the circle to the blue, ink blended panel. Then finally, added the whole thing to a white, top fold, A2 cardbase. I added one black, simple, die cut heart with Nuvo Glaze over top.

And that finished the card! I love the spring feel this card which I’m definitely ready for!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been playing around with a mix of some new & old supplies, working on ideas for our February Blog Hop- (coming up on Friday, Feb. 7).  One idea had me pulling out Color Burst powders (I used some I’ve had for a few years, but tried to pick colors similar to the new ones in this Sunrise Color Burst Trio by MFT).  The card I’m sharing today is a sort of happy accident…  I set the piece I was inking on another sheet of cardstock and THIS is the overflow spray from my spritzing and shaking happily away with my Color Burst 🙂

The colorful splatters you can get with Color Burst is one of my favorite things about it!  I decided to go ahead and trim it down for a card front!  In the spirit of keeping it simple, a fabulous sentiment was in order.  It seemed perfect for the Crafty & Creative stamps by Gina K Designs!  There are two stamps in this little set, and the second one is stamped inside my card.  Crafty friends really are the greatest friends!  And these Gina K stamps really are a dream to work with- I love the crisp black image I got using them with Nocturne Versafine Clair!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Hi Crafty Friends, Sandi here and my inspiration today is the Gina K Elegant Asters Sepia Card.

This stamp set has a beautiful selection of flowers and leaves, a fabulous butterfly and some great sentiments (although I didn’t use them for today’s card).

I used four Copic Markers to create my Sepia color for the design pieces: E41, E43, E44 and #47. Once all the images were colored, I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

For the background, I started with a piece of Gina K Kraft card stock and die cut it with a stitched square die.
I used the Gina K Leafy Stencil and Gina K Kraft Ink with a Life Changing Brush to add a little “background noise” behind where my art pieces would go.
I also inked around the edge before mounting it to a black mat and then my 5 x 5 square top folding card base.

I repeated the stencil design lightly on the inside of the card and duplicate the mat layers as well before adding the extra art pieces. NOTE: the leaves on this one I left black and white and I really like the contrast to the Sepia flower.

I used foam squares to attach the art pieces and then added a three layered die cut sentiment.

My final embellishment, I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black to add some interest down the left side of the card.

Here’s a short video I created walking you through the Copic Flicking technique and the sepia color for the card.
