smile...

Hello!!   A new sketch is up on the MFT challenge blog and I found some time to make a card using it along with the current colors for the MFT color challenge.  I will also be adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of put a sentiment on it.   I still had the July MFT card kit and I wanted to make another card before I put things away.  This time I used the lovely script smile die from the kit long with the one of the large flowers and the leaves stamps and dies.  I stamped the flower using the coral color and the leaves using colors close to the Spearmint and Green Eyed Monster colors.  The smile was die cut from cardstock in a color as close as I could get to blueberry.  I did die cut the word three times and then adhered them together.  I used the soft gray cardstock to break things up a bit.  The strip and the rounded rectangle were die cut using the MFT Inside Out Stitched Rectangle dies.  After I layered everything up per the sketch I stamped the sentiment on vellum using watermark ink, heat set it with white embossing powder and then die cut it with the banner die (the free with $60 die set).  A panel of white cardstock was die cut, the rounded rectangle adhered to that and then everything was adhered to a coral cardstock base.  I love it when I can "kill two birds with one stone"!   I think I will also add this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge.  ETA:  Today is the last day of MFT's Camp Create, part 2.  I have not had time to do any of the other "crafts", but since my card has lots of die cutting on it I will be adding it to today's "craft" of die cutting.  Adding this to the current Dies R Us challenge of anything goes.




Have a wonderful day!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and vellum, Ranger woodgrain, MFT Coral Crush, SSS fog, blue; Stamps:  MFT; Dies:  MFT and AJVD; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Hero Arts and VersaMark; Embossing powder:  Hero Arts
