A Thank You card

Happy Tuesday! I hope your day is off to a great start! I have been beavering away in my craft studio…..but a lot of the things I am working on are for future stamp releases so I can’t share them with you yet :(

This card however, I can share. I {heart} MFT but don’t always get the chance to play with their cute stamps. I had a fun time creating this card and I used their weekly sketch challenge as a guide for my card.

 

008 copy

My favorite stamp line from MFT is the a la mode collection. This one is called Blue without you and comes with a variety of sentiments. I choose to use the “thank you”. The image was colored up with Copic Markers.

I tried to keep this card relatively simply and only used a tiny scrap of patterned paper (SU!). I used plain blue cardstock for the rest of the card and added some interest by running it through my Big Shot with a Sizzix embossing folder. I got this one from SU! but am not sure where else it is available. I also die-cut a star and some banners from more scrap paper to add to the card. A wee button, some twine and stickles complete my card :)

So, I am just barely able to enter this card as it is Tuesday but I am squeaking this in :)

Have a fabulous day my dears and thanks for stopping by!

Sketch Saturday Week # 160

Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start! Today my card is for this week’s Sketch Saturday Challenge. I have been itching to use another of MFT’s à la modes and this one is just perfect to send to someone that you have not seen in a while to invite them out for a coffee!

The image was quickly colored in with Copic Sketch markers.. The paper is from MME and I used felt and metal dies to create my embellies. I will link them all at the end of this post for you.

I added some machine stitching for a little more interest and the sentiment is one of a few that comes with the image. The swirls around the focal image were made with a Stempelgelde stamp.

I used one of the MFT à la modes stamps. I am seriously addicted to this line of cuties and you’ll be seeing more on my blog in the weeks to come! This one is called All Star. She was a piece of cake to color up with my copic markers. I added some blue shading around her and stamped the sides with my new Stemplegelde corner stamp. These are two things that I often see my friend Inge doing on her cards and I totally {heart} this effect so I decided to give it a try.

The sentiment is one of a few that come with the image and I just used my corner rounder around the edges and lightly sponged it to soften it up. The flowers and leaves were all made with felt using MFT dies. These are so much fun to make. I love making my own embellishments!
